"I have owned seven (7) Mercedes of various models, including three (3) "E Class" cars. My current 2002 E320 is a perfect example of how these cars have declined and are continuing to decline in quality, reliability and value. Although much like many other vehicles of its age, a large percentage of the car is made with plastic, however, for the price point that a Mercedes represents, you would hope to find the use of a better quality material. As a result, most plastic items have broken. The shocking outcome was to find that the cost of the replacement parts were astronomical, even though it was merely plastic. The vehicle currently has approximately 65,000 miles, however, given the amount of items that are either broken or have already been replaced on the vehicle, you would think it had over 200,000 miles. The list of replacement items is as follows: Transmission Rebuilt due to slipping A/C Compressor A/C Receiver Dryer Motor Mounts Blower Motor Regulator All Catalytic Converters (4) Both Visor Mirror Doors Drivers Seat Frame Antenna for the Radio/Navigation System Cup Holder in Console Drive Train Flex Disc Brake Discs on All Four Wheels (Pads I would expect.) Glove Box Door Tail Light Bulb Mounts both sides And so on…. and so on…. To me Mercedes no longer stands for quality and dependability. What they are producing in my opinion are vehicles that represent “Less for More”. Never again will I buy one of these cars!!!!"
