    My C240 pulls to the left. I have found a few other C class owners with the same problem.

    Please let me know if you have the same problem as I am going to give Merc some stick.

    Thanks

    I find mine follows the camber of the road. So sometimes it'll want to pull to the left if the camber slants to the left and other times the car will want to pull to the right again if the road slopes to the right. On a totally flat level road it'll head straight as a dye.

    Mine doesn't do it either, but I've read various complaints about it, particularly in the States.
    Some say its incurable and call it a 'characteristic' - fault, I'd say - others claim to have had it fixed.
    I read all this ages ago, so I can't direct you to a particular thread - it was on one of these - you'll have to search -

    Sorry can't help more, good luck.

    I was told that because I have a steering box rather than a rack, I will always find the car is very sensitive to road cambers.

    This was also backed up with my previous car (Omega) which also had a box rather than a rack. This also was sensitive the road cambers.

    Of course I assume the C-Class has a steering box.
