    C Class e350 Hybrid

    Hello all. I have the above model, and was looking to see if anyone (with any Merc Hybrid) has had experience of the charging flap on the back bumper being stuck shut. I’ve tried various solutions found online - lock/unlock with key, WD40, nothing works, resolutely stuck. Any suggestions? Thanks.

    Hybrid: How to disable pre-entry climate control?

    I have a c350e. Does anyone know how I stop the car automatically turning on the heating every time I unlock it with my key fob? Every time I go to unplug the charging cable, I unlock the car and it's starts heating up using up my precious battery juice. Any clues? On the Mercedes Me portal...

    Issue with 2014 E300 Hybrid (W212)

    I recently bought a used E300 Hybrid (W212) from 2014 from an official Mercedes dealer. The car is awesome and great fun to drive but the hybrid features have only worked for a few days right after I bought it and have not worked since. By "hybrid features" I mean the engine turning off when you...

    My first Benz

    Hi everyone, It’s great to be a member of the club. I picked up my first MB last weekend - a C350e premium plus. What a joy. What a beauty. (What a beast!) I’m city based and already seeing the advantages though I have to wait 7-10 days for my charge card before I can plug it in daily.

    C350e hybrid battery charge

    I have a 350e hybrid. Most times when I charge the battery using a normal 13 Amp socket, the charging stops at around 13 miles stored. Occasionally I have seen this figure up at 18 miles. Does any one know why there is this difference? And How can I ensure maximum battery charge every time...

    Good evening, First of all, apologies if this is in the wrong place as I am very new to the forum. To cut things short, I have a Mercedes e300 hybrid bluetec. It's a 63 plate and I've had it for 4 months and 2 months out of those were brilliant. The problems started around 2 months ago. The...

    E300 Hybrid System not engaging

    I wonder if I can ask other E300 owners if they have experienced a similar issue to me with the Hybrid system of their cars. I have a 2014MY E300 with around 40K miles. I'm used to the Hybrid engaging right from the off, with sometimes a small lag which I assume - in cold weather - allows the...

    E300 Hybrid - don't buy it for the mpg

    For anyone thinking of buying an E300 hybrid, I would think that the real-world mpg might be the deciding factor. The official figures are 65mpg+, but obviously that is not going to be achievable with normal driving. I do a lot of miles on hilly B roads, interspersed with a few longer...
