Good to hear! Do keep us informed. It *seems* like the stuff out of the Bama plant is much better regarding reliability so far. I haven't seen nearly as many complaints about he new M-Class compared to the previous generation. Hopefully since all three of these vehicles R/ML/GL use the same "stuff" underneath (more or less) they'll all be way more relible/trouble free than the first generation M was.

you haven't seen that many complaints on the new M because it is too early, and plus does not seem like anyone is buying them.

Well the sales numbers YTD say otherwise, they're way up over last years. Sales aren't the M-Class' problem. Qualtiy? We'll just have to see.

yes, they may be up over last years, but does that really say anything? last year, they had an outdated, underperforming model. i would hope the all new vehicle would surpass the previous model in that category.
they did do right by me given my problems, and i hope people are having better experiences with theirs. it is a wonderful vehicle otherwise.

Well that is all you can expect really. It says that the new one is a success. The old M-Class sold pretty well right up until the end for it to be so outdated.

I don't mean to be "cocky" but if you all bought a Benz that you got a couple bucks. I bought a R500 with every conceivable option except the DVD. Buy a portable DVD for a third the price and use it ANYWHERE. ANyways, I didn't even consider the 350 so I don't know how much cheaper the smaller engine was, but does it possible move this rig.
Oh, besides every conceivable option. I nearly "emptied" the accessores catalog: mud flaps, aerokit, "light up" sills, rear console, IPOD, hands free, handle inserts, on and on.
