Cars from Mercedes-Benz will never rattle or squeak however old the car grows. This is because all the cars from Mercedes-Benz are welded in 10,000 places, which does not give space for the loosen bolts or nuts.

Mercedes-Benz cars come with the best of engines. Mercedes- Benz engines come with overhead camshafts. This arrangement delivers smooth, silent, and safer engine even at the higher speed.

The engine undergoes several tests before the engine is incorporated in the car.

Every Mercedes-Benz car steering system has a tiny built-in shock absorber which is developed in house to give a comfortable ride.

Before the car goes to the paint booth, every car part is dipped in 52-ton primer bath, which is an anti corrosion coating.

Four coats of paint are sprayed on the cars between every hand polishing. The final salt resistant painting work is done manually in order to give the car a smooth and glossy touch.
