    Thanks for your help - I will double check the boot next time I go to the car (it is kept a couple of hours away from me)

    Battery completely flat and doors won't unlock

    My R Class has been 'resting' for a while and I went to give it a jump start today as I knew the battery was flat, but I couldn't even get the doors to unlock so that I could pop the bonnet. I use the blade key inside the key fob and although it turned correctly, the locks still didn't pop up...

    Anyone tried buying a new Mercedes recently?

    Thought I'd share my recent experience and see if anyone has any suggestions.... Trying to buy a new E300 Coupe on behalf of a friend. Having established that there are none in stock at dealers, we went before Christmas to MB Croydon. 'Hello, we'd like to buy a new E300 Coupe please'. Answer...

    R Class - starting problems - any thoughts?

    For a while now, when starting from cold, the engine turns over fine, but doesn't start for about 8-10 seconds, followed by a small cloud of dark exhaust fumes at the back. It hasn't got worse (or better), but starts fine when warmed up. Batteries are fairly new. Any ideas what the...

    Bought an ML350 and now I want my money back

    You have redeemed yourself! :thumb: The R Class is a much under-rated car and represents huge value for money. I always say - those that have them, love them (including me), and those that have never driven one, complain about them. Enjoy!

    Bought an ML350 and now I want my money back

    Jim - what is there to think about?!? Take the refund and run. Fast. A mile. Really? Are you seriously thinking of sticking with this car? (next thread = my dealer put some 'new' sticky tape over the EML) Do yourself a favour mate and get out of this car now.

    Help!! £5K repair cost - Mercedes B class - power loss

    My advice would be to go straight to MB Customer Services, not waste time with the local dealer. Say that this is unacceptable for a car of this age and with a full MB service history and ask them what they intend to do about it. Having said that, at best they will only pay a proportion of...

    Bought an ML350 and now I want my money back

    Good luck tomorrow - I would be starting with a request for a full refund, even if you have had the car for over a month. Even if the dealer isn't directly responsible for putting the tape over the EML, then he is still responsible for selling a car not fit for purpose. It seems there are...

    Anyone seen any good number plates on cars lately?

    On a 10 year old Chrysler 300C? I would have thought he'd drive something a bit more up to date than that!
