    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...

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

    Customer Service?

    I agree with Codger49 They are now lying to you, fobbing you off, ignoring you and now without your permission, allowing employees to take your car home for the weekend. I realise they may need to use the car to try and have the fault reappear, but they should have at least agreed this with...

    Customer Service?

    I have to say that I would be tempted to reject the car, even if there is a cost difference in doing so. The EML may or may not get sorted, but how many times are they going ot get you to waste your time going back and forth to the dealership - and even if it is fixed (not just cleared on...
