Fuel leaks are never sexy. The fumes pollute the air and worse, leaked fuel can catch on fire more easily than most things. Unfortunately for Mercedes-Benz, a whole bunch of fuel filters may have been manufactured with a weakness that could cause them to leak fuel.
Two days after we showed it to you, Mercedes-Benz gave us all the details about it's newest E-Class. We said the car's redesigned front and S-Class shaped profile looks dull, and thought that the sedan's backside could bore even a hardcore Lexus fan, while they refer to it as "emotionally appealing".
Here it is, the brand new E-Class in all its glory. As you can see, the biggest change is that Mercedes-Benz's most important model will switch from the dual-pod lights seen on the current one to single units with LED wizardry. I guess that's how Stuttgart says "hi" to Ingolstadt.
Exciting news for fans of Pope Benedict XVI: His Holiness has a new set of wheels, and — shockingly! — it is a Mercedes-Benz SUV yet again. I guess he didn't take too kindly to my suggestion of an '86 Mitsubishi Starion Popemobile.
AMG came a long way from building racecar engines in the sixties to making our Editor-in-Chief write about their newest child with the caps lock on. Their cars are just that good.
Welcome to Used Car Face Off, where we find two similar or similarly priced used cars and ask you which one you would buy. Choose wisely!
Actor Larry Hagman died Friday at the age of 81 and he leaves behind a long list of film and television appearances.
Clearly, the US isn't getting what the rest of the world is going crazy for. That's usually the case, but I feel like in the case of the third-generation Mercedes-Benz A-Class, it's criminally unfair. It's a good-looking small Mercedes, which certainly hasn't happened since skinny ties were cool the first time. Maybe…
The Mercedes G-Class has been around in the same basic form for about 78 years now. Ok, the number is actually closer to 33, but it is getting long in the tooth.
Germans are fairly keyed-in to American politics, but their car industry has made some curious donations to the presidential race. Did you know Mercedes-Benz is supporting Ron Paul this year?
Last week, I pitted two Q-cars against each other and determined Mercedes was the first of the Germans to nail the recipe for a sedan that looks boring but packs a punch. The 300SEL 6.3 was the beginning, but the W124-based 500E was a high-water mark.
If this year's Paris Motor Show taught us anything, it's that in a European market struggling with a crippling downturn, it's best to look toward the future.
Ever wonder what a Mercedes-Benz boat would look like? Your waiting days are over, my chums of fine pedigree. Mercedes has teamed up with Silver Arrows Marine to create the Benz yacht you've always wanted but could never have. It's pure floating sex.
The car world is lousy with fly-by-night tuning shops. RENNtech isn't one of them. Founded in the 1980s by 15-year AMG veteran Hartmut Feyhl, the Florida shop has put the screws to hundreds of Mercedes-Benz (as well as Porsche and BMW) products over the decades.
Welcome to Found Around Town, where we feature cars we find in a city where interesting ones are rare because everyone drives a Prius or rides a bicycle: Austin, Texas.
Car lovers of a certain age mark time in two epochs: Before the AMG Hammer and after they'd read about it in Road and Driver, Car and Key, Dynamite, Modern Maturity or Tops in the Bronx. It seemed everyone was talking about the Hammer back then.
If you've ever thought that new cars all look the same, here's proof. Swap the grills between two different makes (like between a Kia and a BMW) and it's hard to tell which design looks more appropriate.
The whole world changed when the Berlin Wall fell in 1989. It changed a great deal for two Germans in particular, who left their country for an 18-month trip around Africa in a Mercedes G Wagen. They've been traveling ever since.
