A long-serving employee of Merc London -- currently working in parts dept --
said to me this week that all the issues in the C and E class (many South
African-built) have been addressed and all new ones will be fine. I can't
recall from which date this applies but it wasn't that long ago. Doesn't
help buyers of used ones, though.
But it does explain why my CLK Cabrio hasn't given me any big problems; this
range wa snot affected, according to this guy.
Apparently the issues were dealt with with and then the CEO made that
announcement in which he acknowledged there was a problem.
Whether it was a factory matter or electronics complexity or both, let's
hope there will really be an improvement in the bread-and-butter ranges.
