This has become less relevant for the US market: the epicenter of the throw-away society... The average American thinks: why would I drive the same car for 10-15 years, when I can get a new car every 2-3 years and toss the old one...

The days when car manufacturers, particularly MB, were designing every component to last 1Mil miles are LOOOONG gone!
