Cool So what's the deal with Mercedes-Benz???

Why is Mercedes-Benz running all of these commercials with their cars kicking up dirt, drifting around corners, and jumping over intersections? They know their owners/drivers are afraid to do anything in their cars because they don't want to pay the HIGH cost of repairing anything that they may break...

I think it's because the luxury market is saturated and static. To increase sales, they are aiming at the performance market. Marketing folks often have no grasp on reality...remember the Jeep ads showing drivers blasting through ocean waves? Only if it's a rental!!

Jumping over intersections?!? Link please... LOL

They do it b/c they have more lawyers than the federal reserve.

Oh, and they build "the best or nothing" right? Not really.

Here's a universal rule: If you build it, they will come.
