@SQ88 Absolutely. It also reflects the serious lack of product knowledge as well. I am not even sure if the sales and service teams are able to keep up with the features rolled out within the similar models but different batches. Anyway, sometimes things they say just doesn't add up. I recalled having a short conversation with my SE on the climate control when I was briefed about a ~2 sec delay (switching from position 1 to position 2) when pushing the rocker switch rapidly upwards. After position 2, the rest of the position response to the clicks instantly. One would instantly detect that it could be a fault due to the delay in response. However, it was explained as a "protection" mechanism built in to "protect" the A/C compressor.
When I asked "....Then why in "Auto" mode, the climate control will just go into full blast when the engine is first start up....." the reply I got was ".. Oh the sensor is trying to bring the temp in car to the settings configured...." erm.... one would wonder... what happened to the "protect the A/C compressor theory..." I must admit that i am not a trained mechanic. This reply sounds reasonable...I guess... Hence can only take in such comment with a "pinch of salt" but what else can i do. Only to compare notes with fellow w205 owners. I recently also learnt that not all w205 brought in to SG are the same. This adds to the confusion (at least for me) on what and who is right.. I guess have to read the manual to get an answer.
By now, many would just say .. just enjoy the ride.. which is true too..so far.. I love the ride and drive of this car. very different compared to the w246.
Nevertheless, thanks @SQ88 for your valuable input. I guess what's left is to consult the SA and see what i get from them. Now, making the appt and driving in and waiting and explaining .... such a hassle... (lazy me )

We shouldn't let them get away with such replies. I'm quite frustrated by the service team myself. We purchased a brand new Mercedes from Agent instead of PI/ used car from used car dealers. They shouldn't tell us "is like that one" for everything.
