Where are Mercedes vehicles made these days? Germany or Bangladesh?



It’s the rush to profits @Fred123. They are just anmother car in the vast stream of cars on the market. They hold no particular place anymore than any other vehicle of the road. Mass produced in factories that shuffle lots of them off the production lines 24/7 365 days a year. The result is lack of inspection of every vehicle, faults that only become apparent some time after production, and recalls to address those issues.


Apparently not Bangladesh :rofl:… (according to wiki)
