Cars assembled at Mercedes-Benz's East London plant are of the highest quality, according to market research institute JD Power.
EL plant scores in quality study
The plant received a Power Gold Plant Quality Award after gauging Mercedes-Benz customers' level of satisfaction with the quality of their new cars. The C-Class compact sedan is built at the East London plant.
The quality of the car's exterior, interior, seats, engine, transmission and operational controls was considered by owners in the US when polled 90 days after taking delivery of their cars.
Along with the East London plant, Mercedes-Benz's Bremen facility, that produces C-, CLK-, GLK-, SLK- and SL-Class, was awarded a Silver award in the same study.
