Engine noise from outside the GLC

7 posts in this topic

Finally picked up the car (GLC250) over a month ago and the one of the things that has bothered me is the sound of the car.

For a petrol engine, it sounds too much like a Diesel engine to me. 

No problems within the well insulated cabin  Just from outside the car  

Was told that this is normal for a Mercedes. Has anyone experienced the same thing? 

Thanks!

Haha, same here too. My kids even asked if I collected the wrong car. Audibly louder than my previous ride. But everything else says its a petrol car, so I lived with it.

That is normal as the engine warms up.

Seems like it really is this way the engine sounds.  Guess I have put this down as another learning experience :).
