Correct......I have heard from several people from Indy Techs, to older Merc techs and Merc owners from the 70's to now. The shocking part is they all said that Merc stopped making proper cars in 1994. That's when they went "fully automated" not sure what exactly that means........but regardless. I've always wanted an C class AMG or E AMG, but the fact that they come with "slushboxes'/chicktronics....etc. Huge turn off
