Mercedes-Benz Feels Effect from #Dieselgate

It appears shrapnel from the Volkswagen #Dieselgate emissions violation bomb has hit unrelated oil burning brands, with Mercedes-Benz the latest affected.

The Three Pointed Star will not launch its new diesel-powered variants of both the C-Class sedan and GLC utility vehicle in the 2016 calendar year. According to a recent Automotive News article, Mercedes planned to launch the new models this year, but decided to make potential buyers wait one more year.

The original Cars and Coffee started in Irvine, California some 8 years ago. The spontaneous event took off and eventually folks who had attended or heard about the informal gathering of car nuts created events in their local area all over the U.S.

The event attended (and photographed) in this blog post is held in Great Falls, Virginia every Saturday morning at the crack of dawn.
