From F1 to Nascar to grandma's Camry....it's Car Talk.

Re: Looks like the press is finally catching on to the myth of...

We can only go by out own experiences. I own an ML320 and a C230K Mercedes. They have been great and I am hooked on Mercedes. My brother has an 89 300SEL and a friend has an 82 or 82 240D. The older cars have had a few normal "issues", but we are all very satisfied. My other brother has owned BMW 3 series for years and keeps getting new ones and his son has a Porsche Boxster S. Again, we all love our cars, so maybe we are the lucky ones.

On the other hand, I have known a number of people who had trouble with Volkswagon Jettas. I would never buy one of those.

Yes, I have owned Toyotas and Hondas but I get out my ML after 4 hours of driving and feel great. Getting out of my top of the line Honda after two hours and my back would be crippled. It was a reliable car, and seemed comfortable until it was time to get up.

Anecdotal data such as this may not be statistically significant, but it is enough for me to stay with Mercedes.
