Mercedes-Benz CLC-CLASS FAQs
Check out real-world situations relating to the Mercedes-Benz here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Genesis G90 - Any chance for Australia?
Both the existing Genesis G90 (and its closely related Kia K9 sedan) are flagship models not available in Australia due to the tiny pool of buyers that swim in the upper-luxury segment dominated by the Mercedes-Benz S-Class.
The main stumbling block is probably the prohibitive cost of engineering these left-hand-drive market models for right-hand-drive. At over 5.2 metres long (and counting if you include the limo version), these are way too large for British roads, and the expected sales volumes from the rest of the right-hand-drive countries combined including Australia just doesn't make a viable business case for them.
Plus, big luxury SUVs are where the customers are heading, so a luxury crossover flagship from fledgling Genesis would make much more sense anyway. Sorry, but please don't hold your breath for a G90 in Australia any time soon.
However, the all-electric G80 – Genesis' big 5 Series-priced rival – is said to be heading Downunder inside the next 12 months. The EV limo is the brand’s first fully electric model and will have “more than 500km range” to take on the coming Mercedes-Benz EQS electric luxury flagship sedan.Show more
How can I look up a cars service history online?
If the vehicle has been serviced at a Mercedes-Benz dealer, all the information about that history can be accessed online. Any dealer should be able to tap into that history file and tell you what you need to know. You can also establish (if you haven’t already) a `Mercedes me’ account via the factory website and this will enable you to check out the car’s entire service background. A dealer will be able to help you establish your Mercedes me account.
If you’re after an owner’s manual, there’s one included on the car’s hard-drive if the vehicle is fitted with the Mercedes Command system (which was standard on the Power trim level and optional on the Progressive) which you can access via the info-screen in the dashboard. Failing that, this link will get you top the relevant online subject matter.Show more
Why does my 2008 Mercedes-Benz Vito cut out when moving or idling?
Again, a problem like this is very difficult to diagnose via remote control. You haven’t given me much to go on here, but my first suggestion would be to have the car scanned at a workshop and see what error codes materialise. From there, you can take a much more targeted approach to working out which of the hundreds of possible components is causing the problem. Don’t forget the basics, either, such as contaminated or old fuel in the tank. Modern fuel doesn’t like sitting around in a tank and can `go off’ over time.Show more
