    OK, I've had my W204 now for just over six months and as this is a still considered a "new" model and one which Mercedes have made a big fuss about in terms of the reliability gremlins of past models being a thing of the past, I thought I'd start a thread for W204 owners to report any issues they've had with the car and whether or not they've been satisfactorily fixed. So, starting the ball rolling...

    Model: W204 C220 CDI Elegance Auto, purchased new, January 2008
    Current mileage: 7,900
    Faults:
    • All injectors replaced due to knock on initial startup in very cold weather (< 2C) at eight weeks old / 3,000 miles. See this thread for details
    Absolutely no other issues - not even a squeak or rattle - which is more than I can say for the last two VAG cars that I had.
