I just went in to look at a new CLS 500.
The first thing I noticed at the salesmans desk was a promotional set up
for "maintenance packages".
Mercedes no longr provides a 4 year/50,000 regular maintenance package
with every new car. You now have to buy it.
What was once included is about $3,000 extra.
Are they nuts.
While most every other luxury car offers it free (BMW even includes wear
items like brakes) these morons want 3 grand.
Sorry, I'll probably trade in my S500 for a Lexus.
The just lost a loyal customer (three cars).
I hear this all the time.
The problem is: Every person that bought a new MB in the past 4 years got a
survey in the mail
asking questions. One of the questions asked was "Is free maintenance a deciding
factor for buying
Over 80% said NO.
All the people that said NO, 8 out of 10, are the ones to blame.... NOT MB.
You guys get pissed when you don't get what you want..... now you are bitching
cause you ARE getting
what you asked for.
Someone's reasoning is shaky, to say the least. If men are asked "Is
having hair the deciding factor why you chose your wife?" would they
say yes, that made all the difference? Likely at least 80% would not
call hair "the deciding factor." Does that imply in any way that having
a head of hair isn't an important plus? Hardly. But by your reasoning a
women might just as well shave her head, thinking men don't care.
This was a case of "Chrysler the giant killer" rigging a survey by
choice of wording and then sticking it to the consumer.

Stephen Rabinowitz asked:
Didn't they raise the prices on the 2005's & not lowered them so how are we
So, following this logic, then NOTHING else went up in price in 2005 from 2004??
You are still paying 2004 prices for gasoline today?
Your house did not gain any value from appreciation?
Your property taxes are the same as 2004?
You still buy nickle candy bars where??
