    Hmmm, EQC: "from £64,925", "249 miles range" (on a good or very good day, perhaps) and 11 hours to fully charge ... not a combination that will win me over.

    Home charging isn't a problem. Being able to tow would be useful, as would a bit more luggage space. The lack of rural charge points seems to be a very good reason to rule-out an EV until the charged range and recharge time get closer to a petrol car., which probably means a fuel cell. Until...

    What to replace a C350e estate with? My car will soon be 3 1/2 years old and, apart from a suspension pump failure it's been totally reliable ... but I'm starting to wonder "what next?". I like the performance and comfort of the 350e but would prefer a bit more luggage space and a bit more...

    Well, the Saab 9-5 Aero estate that I had before the C350e was far and away the best car I've owned, but the fuel consumption and road tax were painful. A short time ago I mentioned an intermittent suspension issue "stop driving, car too low" ... it happened again this week so I got M-B to...

    Interesting - where did you see that version? GooglePlay still has v1.0.1 as the latest

    My car has done about 400 miles since it's suspension hiccup and there has been no recurrence, so (hopefully) it was caused by a bad contact, water or an electron getting lost in some other way.

    It's a strange interface but the timed control has worked 2 times out of the 3 I've tried using it. I can't get an instant "set" to work. (BTW, the suspension glitch hasn't happened again - but a long journey today so fingers crossed).

    It's contagious! Quick, shut all the schools, offices and factories. Did the warning go away after an off/on cycle?

    Had a worrying hiccup last night (especially as the car has just passed its 3rd birthday). Suddenly the car flashed-up "Stop Driving, car too low" and it felt like the suspension was on the bottom stops. I switched off/on and it was OK for the rest of the journey but I started to wonder whether...

    I just had the "7 Mercedes me connect services have expired" email and have renewed 2 of the 3 sets at the cost of £78.33+VAT. Very surprising that a manufacturer of "not cheap" cars would do this to their customers for such a small amount of money. My feeling about MB would be so much more...

    The car has always had OAT on the mileage page, but the contrast of the OAT area is poor and it's not the page that a driver would have displayed as default. I'd expected that any modern car would warn me if the temperature got into the freezing range; very surprised and disappointed that MB...

    I just found something that might be relevant here: Strange Behaviour after UK Mode deletion. "Right got onto STAR today via another forum member and got this sorted out. First thing was to go into the basic coding and set the country back to UK, and that sorted out the issue with the digital...

    Tech questions: settings for remote boot opening and display of OAT The car is going-in for a service soon and, before doing battle, it would be useful to know whether anyone has dealt with a couple of the things that pain me: There was lots of discussion about getting the KPH display to show...

    Wiper blades The wiper blades on my 2017 C350e are smearing so it's time to change them. The blades recommended on the Halfords site (and elsewhere) are Bosch A844S, but there are a few reviews saying that they don't fit. What have people here fitted successfully?

    Front wheel tracking ... SWMBO noticed that the outer part of the front tyres was slightly "scrubbed" so I had the tracking checked. I was surprised to be told that the total error was 9 degrees, which explains the slightly light steering feel - the steering feel is much better now. Obviously...

    A couple of years ago I bought these from Black Circles, the reviews were OK at the time: Goodyear UltraGrip Performance Gen-1 (Winter Tyre) 245/45 R17 V (99) 225/50 R17 V (98), Reinforced, Winter Tyre

    Try setting it to ECO as well as e-mode. You should then feel pressure when it wants you to lift-off to match the speed of the vehicle in front.

    They are very simple devices: a switch, an RCD, a box to negotiate charging rate with the car, and a contactor ... what do they think is supposed to need servicing? There is a slight potential issue (ho ho) with earthing them because the recommendation is that they have their own earth rod (to...

    Has anyone "tested" the automatic braking feature? I've been using Eco mode a lot recently and really like the way the car decelerates if the car in front slows down, but if regenerative braking isn't going to be enough to keep a safe distance the car gives a couple of beeps (squeaks of alarm?)...
