definately not trolling. see my post in the 2008 diesel for a 2011 laredo. Thanks for the paranoia though.

Re: Can you believe these guys

sorry... just a topic that most interested me at the time. I was always curious how much was actually shared between the mercedes and jeep wk2.

Re: Can you believe these guys

I was skeptical about buying a Chrysler product, but am really pleased with my Jeep. I got my 2012 Overland Hemi ORAII in November 2011, so the redesigned 2013 ML350 wasn't available for comparison. However, comparing them now, I don't see the value in spending at least $20,000 more for a comparable Mercedes than the Jeep. On top of the already much higher base MSRP for the Mercedes, you'd have to add $2,500 to get 4Matic and $3,500 for an Off-Road package that includes an air suspension, low range and front skid plates. Really?!?! The comments that I saw on the Mercedes forum sound like they're from owners trying to rationalize overspending for their cars. While I see some of that on this forum, too , it's nowhere near as pompous or pathetic as I saw from the Mercedes owners (e.g., Mercedes uses much better steel than Jeep. ). I'm not so personally invested in my choice of a Jeep that I'm insulted by those who don't like or understand it. I have a running battle of insults with friends who own two Toyota Prii. I always offer to drive them to the store after it snows and thank them for offsetting my carbon footprint. My bottom line on the Grand Cherokee versus ML350 comparison is that my Grand Cherokee does what I need it to do more than satisfactorily and at a very reasonable cost, but I'd feel like a sucker every time I thought about what I paid for my ML350.

Re: Can you believe these guys

Bored at lunch today so I perused the MB site...for those that have been complaining about the Jeep dealership. You'll see the same from MB.

Random Stalling in 2012 ML - MBWorld.org Forums

And some pretty serious bluetec issues
Diesel Hesitation and Bucking - MBWorld.org Forums

Point is I guess, you can pay 24k more for a vehicle and have crappy service and severe issues. I think some people are jaded with their experiences good/bad with any make of auto.

Re: Can you believe these guys

I remember once, my Dad and I were out shopping for a car for him to replace his old 98 Lexus LS. This was maybe 2001 or so. He wanted to look at an S Class, so we went over to the MB dealer, parked the LS in a space out front. One of the lot porters yelled at him rudely as we were getting out of the car "you can't park that there...you have to put it out on the street." he turned and looked at him, we were in a big empty parking lot right in front of the main entrance with a sign that said "customer parking", the porter pointed to the street and says "Out on the street..."

I took the keys and moved it for him out onto the street while he walked across the parking lot. As I was walking back towards the dealer he was walking up the steps to the showroom door, as he got to the door, one of the salesmen stepped in front of him cutting him off, walked in the door, and slammed the door back in his face.

He turned around and said "Lets go". $85,000 walked off their lot and got back in the car and left.

And this was a 60 year old man, driving a 3 year old major competitor's vehicle...and they treated him like that before he ever even walked in the door!

I went back to that same dealership to look at an E350 3 months ago when I was shopping for the GS, its down the street from my office. I walked in, looked around, sat in a couple cars, asked to talk to somebody a few times to which the receptionist replied curtly "Someone will be here soon sir". Nobody even registered I was there...so...I left.

I don't want to do business with people who think they're too good for me, just my opinion.

Re: Can you believe these guys

I was pleasantly surprised about my experience at the Jeep dealership I purchased from. Not really pushy at all and the person I was working with actually seemed to know their product fairly well. I also went in about a month before my planned purchase and still got great service and attention while just trying to decide which model JGC I wanted etc...

The Rolex bursts into flames as soon as you touch the door handle.

I wouldn't recommend it

I went into a Mercedes dealer and they didn't want to serve me, had me standing around for 40 mins before I decided to leave. A sales man said "ill be with you" so i was waiting and waiting around and then he went of to serve the new customers that just came though the door, they were white people, I was was first there, but I thought to myself "never mind".. I saw the host at the main desk and said to her that I needed some assistance , she phoned through to another sales guy at his desk to come over. He said he was busy... I saw on his screen he was looking at football results! Then I was told to just wait, the white folks were getting along just fine though!

I was going to by an e55 cab, and it actually hurts because it was so blatantly obvious that they were being racist. They saw I was like darker completion and favoured their fellow men, and being young probably didn't help too! Audi however no problem great service!

Mercedes had a bad rep in the UK, Mercedes Benz UK bought back all 200ish franchises to get it's rep back up to scratch, don't think it working they need to try harder.

You can only step foot into Mercedes showroom if your a white older man wearing a Suit.. Oh well their not getting my money and that's for sure!!
