Mercedes-Benz C-Class 2008 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Mercedes-Benz C-Class 2008 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • C200 timing chain stretched

    Normally I would have expected the car to run roughly when the chain stretched. They stretch progressively, not overnight, so there should have been some warning that all was not well. But it is low kilometres for a chain to stretch, which might mean you have a case for a goodwill claim against Mercedes, although I wouldn’t fancy your chances of success.

  • 2008 Mercedes-Benz 200 Kompressor auto

    Your frustration is understandable. I would urge you to go back to Mercedes-Benz direct and request some assistance with the cost of repairs. While I doubt that Mercedes would cover the whole cost of the job, I would think they might cover part of the cost if you approach them in a reasonable way. If you don't want to go down that path consult an automatic transmission specialist and get another quote for repairs.

  • Premium fuel for Mercedes-Benz

    The Mercedes recommended fuel for the E280 is 91-octane regular unleaded, while the recommended fuel for the C180 Kompressor is 95- octane premium. While you can safely run the E280 on regular unleaded, and I suspect you could run the Kompressor on 91-ocatane, you will get better performance and economy by running them on the higher-octane fuel. Mercedes-Benz also approves the use of E10 ethanol blend fuel in both of your models, which might help you save a few pennies.

  • Mercedes mystery

    I HAVEN'T and I couldn't believe it, but I contacted Mercedes-Benz to check anyway. It confirmed my belief that your friend's information was incorrect, but to be sure Benz told us it would contact you to get more information and hopefully set your friend's mind at rest.
