Mercedes-Benz A-Class FAQs

Are there plans for Mercedes to bring out an EV small car?

At this stage, the smallest Mercedes-Benz EV is the EQA. Although there’s a Smart EV in other parts of the world, there are no plans to introduce it here. The decision not to make an A-Class hatchback EV is in line with the rest of the world’s car-makers who are ditching conventional hatchback and sedan designs in favour of the all-conquering SUV packaging.

However, while the EQA is physically larger than your current A250, it’s probably not by as much as you might imagine. In overall length terms, the EQA is about three centimetres longer and about five centimetres wider. The big difference is that the new car is a lot taller; about 19 centimetres higher, in fact. But even then, the EQA is still a pretty compact car, and if your garage won’t accommodate those dimensions, I’m wondering how it was ever council-approved as a parking space within a building.

As for your other requirements, the EQA has a theoretical range of up to 400km and can be fast-charged. As for more charging points in public areas on highways, I’m afraid that’s one you need to talk to your local government member about, not Mercedes-Benz.

What do I look for when servicing a Mercedes-Benz A-Class?

Home servicing is a great way to learn about your car and get a better idea of what makes it tick. It also means you might even become a more `mechanically sympathetic’ driver and be kinder to the car in a long-term sense.

The service booklet in the car’s glove-box will tell you a lot about what you need to know when it comes to what’s required for a service. But remember that not all services are the same: Some are minor services and some are major. Others require one-off actions such as changing a timing belt or checking the tension of a timing chain, but you can’t afford to ignore any of these things. Other things required by the factory service schedule include checking the thickness of brake material, changing fluid beyond just the oil and plenty of other tasks that might not occur to you naturally. Most of these tasks are either time or distance-covered dependent (sometimes both).

The bottom line is that you really need to be on top of these tasks and know how to do them before you rip the car apart in the driveway one Saturday and then discover you don’t know how it all goes back together. Home maintenance extends way beyond just oil changing, particularly on a modern design such as the Mercedes A-Class. Modern cars are very complex devices and keeping them running sweetly and safely is often the work of a specialist. That said, I’m loathe to try to dissuade you from tackling a job that can be very satisfying and could save you money in the process.

A lot of TAFE colleges once offered car-maintenance courses for the home mechanic, but sadly, many of these seem to have disappeared due to budget cuts across the education system. It would still be worth talking to your local TAFE, though, to see if there’s a short course that might help you out.

Mercedes-Benz A180 2014: Broken valve spring

A broken valve spring is not something that would be caused by the fuel. Most likely the spring was faulty, perhaps there was in inclusion in the material it was made from, or there could have been some other manufacturing problem. Use either 95 or 98-octane fuel.
