Mercedes-Benz B-Class FAQs
Check out real-world situations relating to the Mercedes-Benz B-Class here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Benz B200 CDI stranded
It's disappointing when problems occur so soon after delivery, but they sometimes do. The issue is whether or not the carmaker fixes them, and in this case it seems that Mercedes-Benz has, which really is the end of the matter. I don't think there is anything in what has happened to you to justify a request for an extended warranty.Show more
Mercedes-Benz B-Class 2016: Can I use conventional tyres?
Physically, there’s no problem with switching from run-flat to non run-flat tyres. You might even (almost certainly) find the car rides better than it did on run-flats and the Benz B-Class always had a fairly brittle ride, so any improvement is worthwhile.
Yes, you’ll have to arrange some sort of contingency should a flat tyre occur, but you can source a puncture repair kit pretty easily. There are even puncture-repair-in-a-can products (and have been for years) although they’re not always 100 per cent successful. If you’re keen, you could always find a space-saver spare from another model at a wrecking yard. Provided it’s the right diameter and the stud pattern matches, you’re good to go. Don’t forget to include the tools required to change a flat, though.
The other thing to do is to replace all four tyres at the same time. Driving around on a mix of run-flats and non run-flats is a bad idea and could give the car some evil handling traits, especially in the wet.Show more
Is it normal for five year-old Mercedes sensors to go out?
It’s not a common failure, and I doubt that Mercedes-Benz would contribute to the cost of repairs.Show more
