I guess most folks on this list are like me, the B-class is the first Mercedes they've ever owned. So perhaps none of you has the answer to my question, "What is the appeal of M-B?". The cars are clearly expensive when new, the seats and ergonomics are excellent, everyone at my dealer has treated me great.... but their service costs are steep ($150/hr) and parts ridiculous ($250 for heater fan) and the GLA loaner I drove was just awful.
The dealership is beautiful and they had an incredible looking convertible in the showroom, but I really don't quite get why folks would pay extra for the Mercedes badge. And I do get the impression that a lot of folks repeat buy Mercedes.
I'm also intrigued by how nice everything is in my 2014. I think maybe back in the day this was super hi-tech. Even by modern standards the little display screen seems especially sharp and the infotainment well laid out.
So anybody out there have any thoughts on this?
