I have just completed my first 1000 miles and have averaged 53.3 both on the dashboard computer and at the pump. I have been driving as per the manual so no doubt it will go down now but I suspect by not a lot as it is plenty quick enough or so the speed limiter in the passenger seat reckons.
I looked into this when I bought mine and yes it is all down to type approval.
The summary is C class sport saloon tow bar not allowed. C class estate you are allowed to have a tow bar, sounds like madness but I double checked and it is true!
Having seen this thread I was wondering as I went out for a long drive on Saturday.
I was the first time that I have driven my car when it was below freezing and surprise surprise it did not go to green before the first roundabout which it always has before, had a look at the temperature and...
If this happened to me, picking up my car on Friday so it Might! I would get very annoyed if the dealer did not perform. When I get very annoyed if my wife is with me when she spots the signs she will leave and wait outside as I will empty the dealership/shop.
This only happens if I am sure of...
Sounds like my next door neighbour my have got lucky.
1 week after he got his new C250 smoke started billowing out of the dashboard but no fire, apparently a faulty fusible link, but it did take a week to fix which felt odd.
Whilst on my way to our local town a couple of nights ago I had a car with obvious Xenons coming towards me, it's the type of light that gives it away.
As all the traffic cars in our county have Xenons you tend not to flash them of course.
I then spotted as it went past that it was a C-Class...
Have spoken to the person who looks after placing factory orders as most staff at my dealers seem to be on leave for half term. If you want to have the 18" 5 twin spoke they are available for decade 3 November builds onwards. But I did find out that my car will be built on November 9th:D
I got that call as well, was not pleased but what can you do, it was also you know we indicated delivery will be beginning of October well it will now be end of November. Not a great start to the Mercedes experience!
Depends normally on the manufacturer, it is needed on some of their special deals which are mainly cancelled orders a dealer needs to shift.
The Jaguar XF deals in September were very good as the dealers needed to shift all their old model stock.
Yes it is legal but it will not be looked kindly on, if it is car towing car you are only meant to do this only to tow off, if you are spotted towing on to a motorway you will get a lecture to explain why it is not a good idea, and told to get off at the next exit. Both vehicles will also be...
My wife is giving my a hard time over ordering a new C Class, it is not the fact I have ordered one but the apparent lack of quality she is concerned about.
Last week we had the camshaft sensor on @Marks car and last night I had a call from my next door neighbour to ask me to keep and eye on...
I do not leave this to chance, I always include a full tank as part of my final negotiations, I learnt this the hard way when I bought my first new car it had just enough to get to the fuel pumps at the dealers.
Yes the delivery fee says its includes £50 of fuel.
I agree with you so much, if my delivery date gets moved again the order will be cancelled. I have selected the model and spec of an XF already in preparation as it appears to be chaos reigns at MB currently.
