What's your experience with:

Dealerships.
Cars.
SUVs.
Price.
Workmanship/materials.
Sales people.
Service.
Warranty.

I have some old ideas, but would appreciate yours. Thanks.

Excellent experience on all counts. Had issues with service and quality several years ago, but not anymore. I'm on my third, and considered other brands before my most recent purchase, but no other car appealed to me more, and I wanted to continue with the good relationship I have with the service guys.

We are on our fourth MB SUV. Me two GLs, her two MLs. Excellent on all counts. Actually, beyond excellent.

Service is the best. First, pre-pay for your service and save 50% at lease inception. Either one of us shows up at 7am for service and we're out at 7:15 with a GLK or C class loaner that is complimentary. Don't even have to pay for the gas. Service and warranty has always been beyond excellent. Only thing we've paid for in four vehicles is a run flat I hit a nail with.

We look at other vehicles but they just make it too financially sensible and treat us too well not to come back. Odds are pretty damn good I'll be getting my third GL in 2014 and her a new ML in 2013.

I also prepaid for service, and I'm glad I did. Huge savings. Also, they offered a loaner, but I didn't need one, so alternatively, they offered to pick the car up from my house and return it. The best thing though is that I wanted to switch out my summer tires for winter tires, but my car is an AMG with staggered wheels for which MB doesn't offer a winter tire set up. The guys searched other vendors until they found a staggered set in the OEM specs. By the way, I also checked with other vendors and they all wanted to sell me front and rears in the same size. ffffuuuu.gif

I've dealt with this dealership for over 10 years now and have witnessed a complete transformation in their approach to service. The guys are great and the service they provide is impeccable, and this is coming from a customer who had a five figure repair bill on my previous car.

Best value automobiles available, IMO.

I was picking up my niece and nephew from school a month ago, and they asked me to wait so that their friends could see them getting into my Mercedes. Happy to oblige, but my new C-Class cost less than their mother's Honda Odyssey...

lol hey but the masses don't know.

I really like the E class coupe, I think that will be the first car I buy once I start working and my truck gets old.

Any experience with AMG?
post #10 of 49
I've driven the CL63 AMG, thing is fast and I like how it handles.

I don't know much about cars though.

But I haven't had the chance to drive anything else in it's league.

I'd spend some time on the discussion boards over at benzworld.org regarding the make and model you're looking at to see any gotchas---especially if
buying used. For example, I've got a 07 c-class. 1/2 of of serial numbers have a terrible crankshaft issue that costs 5k to fix. 1/2 the cars are fine and the guys on the
board can tell you the good serial numbers...
Parts are 50% more probably than Hondas, etc. Maintenance can be expensive.
Had 3 in the family---2 went to 250,000+ and mine looks to go there too---especially once I got a $6,000 transmission issue fixed 500 miles before the warranty expired....

I've test driven a C63 AMG before. Thing is a fucking beast.

I don't know if you're in the market for one, but if by happenstance you are, GET ONE!!

The NA M156 6.2L V8 engine is very controllable and linear. Great for merging at highway speeds. However, it consumes oil. I put in a quart every 5-7k miles.

There are events at the AMG private lounge. They have an event every year at the NYC auto show.
