Is the drop in reliability due to electronic toys (i.e. the Command system)
or mechanical? I tend to steer away from the excessive gadgets as those
tend to be the cause of problems in lots of cars (ok, maybe more in MBs than
in Japanese cars). My '99 has been pretty good except for some of the
well-known issues (harmonic crankshaft pulley and rear window regulator).
My '95 has been more problematic.
