Sorry English is not my mother language;
I am living in China, Mercedes Benz has Chinese version of E class which is longer and heavier.
I paid about USD77000 for E300L.
There are some cases of broken shock absorber being reported, I don't know the English term for the part which is broken, please see the pictures indicated with red circles.
What would you think cause this kind of damage? Benz flawed design? Made in China quality for the parts? drivers' bad driving? bad road condition?
