    W204 2012 has micro-blistered paintwork

    Hi. This is my first post. Having read through previous posts I see that some MB owners have had problems with their paintwork coming out in micro-blisters. Did MB help out with remedying the defect for anyone? Did you have to go to Court to get their attention? My 2012 C180 estate in solid red...

    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...

    Legal Rights - Small Claims Court?

    I suppose this isn't necessarily a Mercedes issue, more a dealership issue, but given my car is a Mercedes I thought I'd post my story and ask opinion/advice, prior to any next moves. There's a long story here attributed to the purchase and ownership of my CL600 since its purchase in November...

    Handback Trouble

    Finally, if I do try to do a hand-back, what problems am I likely to face? I have heard that MB are not very forgiving when it comes to small scratches, or curbed wheels. Which unfortunately my car has suffered thanks to the ability of the average british driver. I can safely say you will...
