2018 S 450
I have had 14 Mercedes Benz and driving them since 1994. My 2015 S 550 had many electrical issues and I believe the quality in the product from Mercedes Benz North America has gone way down. My deal realizes how important a customer like me is (I lease as well) and was done with this product.

I got the 2018 S 450. After THRIRD WEEK OF HAVING THE CAR I heard a loud noise. I need a new differential. My car has been at dealer for over 30 days. The differential was fixed but now there is another issue.

I am wondering do others or have others had this issue with differential. For the record I have a COMPLAINT with MBNA in but I believe the product has GONE WAY DOWN.

The modern ones are not a patch on the over engineered ones from the nineties IMHO.

The quality in general has gone up, linearly over the last 30 years. By literally every metric.

The numbers built have also gone up. By a LOT. More cars over a far greater model lineup.

So, this results in more problems experienced amongst the driving marketplace just down to the maths of probability.
