Mercedes-Benz is a leading German automaker. The first Mercedes was made in 1901 and was named after the daughter of an Austrian auto engineer who worked on the car at Daimler Motors Corporation (DMG). The first Mercedes-Benz brand vehicle was marketed in 1926 after the merger between Karl Benz and Gottlieb Daimler, which created the Daimler-Benz company.
Adolf Hitler was known to drive the Mercedes-Benz model 770, outfitted with bulletproof windows.
Mercedes' most reported problem on RepairPal is associated with rough shifting on some Mercedes E350 models.
