In Australia a Mercedes Benz ML63 costs around $174,000 base price.
At the moment that equates to US$167,000.
In the US, the same vehicle costs US$94,000.
The price difference is simply outrageous, and not justified by shipping costs, local taxes etc.
So you would think that paying not far off twice as much as the US price, Australian’s would at least get outstanding service.
Not so, it would seem.
Below are two photos taken from a dealer in Melbourne, Australia.
The car shown in an ML63, with a full Mercedes Service history, which has blown its engine after just 80,000km, which is appalling.
It would appear from the signage and location of the vehicle that any claim on Mercedes Benz has been knocked back. So the end result is lots of free, negative publicity right outside the dealer located in the richest suburb in Melbourne.
Come on Mercedes, there better be a good explanation for this one!
