Re: Presets for driving mode

Sadly, no - the car will default to D-Auto at each start.

Re: Next EV?

One option is to wait for the upcoming EQC. I went for the GLE Hybrid, since I needed a family car and earlier in the year I drove a rental GLC Hybrid in Europe for 3000 km and loved it. I know, limited EV range :(

Re: Considering buying a used B Class - US - Battery Concern

By the way, I drove my 2015 B-Class for 3 years, 27,000 miles with no discernible loss of battery capacity - through the end of the lease the range, bot for normal and extended charging, was the same as new. These cars are robust :)

Re: What is the range at 100% charge?

When charged to 100% (but no extended range) the B-Class should display 83 miles range. Try resetting the miles from Reset prior to charging - this should erase the past mpkwh calculatin to a default 2.5, which results in 83 miles range.

Re: Any luck lowering the end of lease purchase price?

Here is how this works: - MBFS will not negotiate on the residual value of the car - this is something to discuss with the dealer. - In spite of what Jeff said about the dealer taking a $5K loss, it does not work that way as the car does not belong to the dealer - the car is owned by MBFS which woul...

Re: Any luck lowering the end of lease purchase price?

With the gasoline prices going up and the dearth of good EVs on the market I decided to purchase my 2015 B-Class. 28,300 miles and the car runs strong, never left me stranded, battery capacity good as new. MSRP was $49.7k, residual value $22.8k, the dealer will sell it to me for $20.2k.

Re: Great Lease deal for the last B250e on Long Island NY

It is not a loaded car - MSRP $42,160. And only 7500 miles / year - pass.

Re: Expiring Lease; Now What?

The Jaguar looks interesting - but would expect significant issues with a company that does not have good experience with EVS. Earlier this month I drove a rental GLC350 Hybrid throughout Netherlands and Germany - 2000 miles over 8 days. It is a decent car, very quiet, well appointed and nice accele...

Re: Rear view mirror obstructing my forward view; any idears

I am keeping the seat adjusted so I can see the full speedometer and get in and out of the car comfortably. What is the point for sitting so high above the road, if your head is close to the ceiling and you cannot see well?

Re: Recent lease or purchase transactions

Is the MB Cash $7500 the federal tax credit that MBFS passes along?
Thanks for the AMA discount, I had no idea!
