  1. This might help:
  2. Welcome bro! i guess your ride has a VES rebate of 10k?
  3. Is your car from C&C? There is no excuse for your rep not to be able to fix this....
  4. VIN

    Try looking it up on the web:
  5. It seems like Merc is reach lower and lower down the food chain to appeal to new buyers who like the badge.. I hope they at least keep up the safety, the reliability and some factors of luxury, instead of just selling the brand..
  6. I recently replaced the battery on my key because I could not remotely wind up or down the windows. I could still do the start and stop, but all was well after swopping out the battery. My other less used key was fine. Why don't you try the key first? Then you know if it's a battery issue in the key or that of the aux battery..
  7. How old is your key battery? Have you replaced it within the last one year?
  8. Why don't you tie it in with some servicing or tire rotation? No hurry I suspect... or with Nano PPS etc...
  9. CNY is coming, if anyone has their car coming up for servicing, you may want to book early, especially if you want the free ride service. Also, for those coming to their first year, you can consider booking the nano PPS service, and Star windscreen polish at the same time, as well as the aircon cleaning, and the Star Interior cleaning. These are all part of your free Essentials package, so you incur less down time. If it's the first time you go in, do check out their website first so you don't get a sticker shock Eg Oil change Service A starts around $500... you will be truly grateful that you only need to bring it in once a year or every 15k... They use Shell Helix Ultra and you may also want to consider doing the tire rotation at the same time. There's an engine flush included in the price, and the engine bay looks spick and span, whilst the interior looks clean and smells really nice. Pandan Loop gives nice curry puffs and decent coffee. Two days down time.
  10. Hey bro Welcome to the family.. I get about 8.6l / 100km for a 80% city driving on my B180...
  11. When did they replace your battery? Any criteria?
  12. Has anyone got their recall notice yet? This will be sent via registered post.. It should be for all MFA based cars: A,B, CLA, GLA cars, made in 2016.Retrofit of fuse on starting current limiter (BC)I guess it's kind of like the vezel issue..Anyone PI buyers get their recall too?
  13. Hope it all works out!
  14. Wow, what recall letter is that?
