My car is in the body shop(do not ask, I was stupid) and I have a gasser C300 loaner. The engine shuts down at stop lights but it seems to work fine.

I am back to another 2017 Cirrus White B250E
It is around $75 more and I like it!

Glenn, yes our B-Class is not for drag racing in Southern California.

Actually, I mention drag racing because over vacation while stuck inside for a couple of days I stumbled on an Amazon show called Grand Tour. All about cars and more cars. Watched a few then fell asleep.

Not looking good

Had car for 27 days - repair not yet commenced. Have told them to keep it till they can fix and sort our range issue - off to South Africa to avoid the cold.

Has any one had their car exchanged on basis it comes no where near predicted mileage - looking at 55 Miles for mine?

Letter to Garage copy Mercedes Uk

Any advice?

Good Morning Mark & Olivia

I have just checked on the Mercedes App. Our car has not moved is locked and as far as I can see no work has started despite reassurance this would be done Friday. You have had the car for 27 days – I realise that Christmas & New Year were in the middle but still ample time to repair the car and then commence on sorting out the range issue.

I would ask that you email to advise action you are taking.

I am in discussions with US car owners

http://www.mybclasselectricdrive.com

I understand that a number of these cars have been replaced.

I wish you to know that I regard the current mileage of 55 totally unrealistic and sound reasons for wanting a refund.

If car range can be sorted happy to keep as it, as is a great car.

I will call after receipt of your email to discuss hire car return

Thank you

David

F,

Good direct letter. They do need to work diligently to replace your motor as they have done for others. This may indeed be the cause of poor mileage. Mileage in that range could be due to mechanical problem, aggressive driving, and cold weather. From what you said, it seems to be the first item. It takes time to get the parts and instructions from MB Germany, once Leeds gets it, it is pretty fast.

This should end well. Enjoy the warm weather down south.
