Mercedes-Benz C250 2015: What tyres produce less road noise?

Answered by CarsGuide 19 Oct 2018

I assume the noise you are unhappy with is road noise. You could try a Michelin tyre, which is probably your best option, but the tyres are run-flats, so you won't get a soft ride whatever the brand you fit.

C250 tyre noise fix?

Answered by CarsGuide 17 May 2016

We often criticise cars for excessive tyre roar on country roads. You're another victim of big wheels and low-profile tyres on a C250, which is the sportier model below the C63 AMG, multiplied by the harshness of runflats. You need to get back to 18-inch rims with higher-profile regular tyres to reduce the road roar, perhaps test driving a basic C200 for a noise test.

C250d annoying clicking noise

Answered by CarsGuide 29 Feb 2016

Mercedes-Benz Australia admits there is a problem but has no timeline yet on a solution. I'm not a fan of the Keyless Go in any case and my solution is to plug the electronic key into the slot beneath the silver start button. Remove the plastic cap first.

Airmatic for C250 petrol sedan?

Answered by CarsGuide 1 Jan 2016

If you want to have your cake and to eat it too, then you need Airmatic. It will improve comfort, and also agility in the Sport suspension setting, but it will cost you around $2500.

Options for retirement car?

Answered by CarsGuide 18 May 2015

If you're retiring and you have the cash, you should reward yourself. I would recommend the excellent Mercedes-Benz C-Class, but not a diesel unless you do more than 30,000km a year.

Good sedan for long trips?

Answered by CarsGuide 6 Apr 2015

A second-hand C-Class is a great choice but, if you can, stretch to the latest C200. It's a landmark car, gets The Tick from me and was an easy winner in our 2014 Car of the Year.

Thoughts on C250?

Answered by CarsGuide 9 Mar 2015

It's a great car and gets The Tick. But why spend extra on the C250 when the C200 is perfectly fine, and cheaper?

Lexus or Mercedes-Benz?

Answered by CarsGuide 17 Nov 2014

The Benz is so far ahead of the Lexus that it's not even a contest. The C-Class gets The Tick and is also one of the favourites for our Car of the Year award. I wouldn't bother with the C250 unless it has some standard features you like, because the C200 is a brilliant car.
