    Afternoon all,

    I have only had my W205 a couple of weeks, yet the LED in my OSR door handle isn't working. Not sure if it ever was tbh as I only noticed the lights illuminating the exterior handles the other night lol

    I have been back to my dealer to get in booked in, but does anyone know if this is a common issues, or am I just unlucky?

    Thanks

    Yes, common problem. MB are on the third supplier of these LED's. Mine are so intermittent they must think they are indicators. Let us know how you get on, I am waiting until my first service....

    I'll get mine fixed under warranty next month with a service, I'm hoping that because it's a warranty issue then I'll be entitled to a courtesy car for free rather than if I was just to get the car serviced on it's own I'd have to pay for it.

    Have to pay for a courtesy car for a service?

    I thought they offered cars for free?! Just need to wait for a slot when they have a car available.

    I've always had a car when my car's been serviced.

    As far as I'm aware, different prices for Quick turn around, collect/deliver, drop it off/wait all day or courtesy car.

    Oh ok, I pay monthly, so I guess it comes out of 'the pot'

    Doubt I'd get a refund at the end of three years, so might as well get my monies worth lol
