    My 2015 C350e recently bought from a dealer keeps on flashing up an orange malfunction message in the central section of the instrument cluster. It has the word "malfunction" and a symbol or two gearwheels - see picture. It lasts from a few seconds to a minute or two when I am driving. The SatNav, radio etc. still work, and the speed sign detector displays the speed limit over it. No working in function eco and comfort!
    I was From Mercedes Heathrow but they tell my need 3 day from check!!

    I'd be taking that straight back to the dealer. Hybrid issues sadly can be extremely expensive.

    hybrid batteries deplete with time, even if used and charged in ideal circumstances
    fast charging will wear it out much more quickly
    a prius battery was circa 7k and might last 7 years if well looked after and nothing unfortunate happens
    the small info I have seen here on Merc electric ones doesn't read well
    car manufactures always find away to get your money (its just how and when that will surprise you)

    Yes it’s got to go back to the dealer because anything hybrid/electric is so complicated. Sadly, even they probably haven’t got a clue so make sure you get a decent loan car for however long it takes them to sort it out.

    A friend of mine was asking me if I knew anything about the C350e as he covers a lot of miles a year, I just advised him of the issues that some of you had found with this model, in the end he opted for the 335d. Maybe in a while they will be more of a sound investment.
