    If you treat your customers with contempt by fleecing them for a Nissan with a Mercedes badge, they bite back and don’t buy the product. Good riddance to the X! Hateful thing and never worthy of the badge and stupid price.

    I have seem a fair few on the roads - tbh i thought (by sightings alone) that Merc were doing very well thank you.I would have thought financially preferable CV BIk rates would have had owners of similar priced Mercs potentially making the switch to X -class.

    They never sold them in the home of the pickup---the USA maybe something to do with their production agreement with NISSAN?

    I don’t think individual tradesmen are very keen on Mercedes commercials, they seem to be bought by large fleets judging by what you see around here, builders buy transits and transporters.

    We live in the land of the double cab and I’ve not seen a single X class locally, Japanese have that market.

    Mercedes should have, in my opinion, made a serious, capable, no nonsense pickup, a bit along the lines of the g, or the older saloon cars that you could option up at will, it would have found buyers who are looking for a defender replacement
