Angry B200 Turbo problems!

Actually to me M.B. B200 Turbo is an unreliable car! I bought a 2007 model last year while it was on 14000 kms milage. I use it as my second car and very rarely! The steering is disaster! the turning circle is too much and to park my car or to get to car park in my work plase I have to do steering 10 times! I had also stalling experience once when I start to accelerate and drive but not faced with same problem again! one other problem I faced (at 19000 kms milage only) behind a red light when i start to move after gear one, second then suddenly car stopped!!! while gear box was ingage no movement and I forced to stop the car in the street and bcs it was holiday (5 am on the way to air port) no help from Mercedes emergency service!!! even when I send sms to their mobile and they called me at 11 am (when they woke up probably after a nice sleep!!!!) they said they can not help me and what they can do is only to send a car carrier to pick up mt car but due to holidays their authorised dealer (garage) refused to accept and I forced to spent more than USD 90 to get my car to my car park and at first working day to sent it to Garage!!! The interesting part is tt they said disk and clutch pad must change and they have no parts in Iran at all and I must wait 2 weeks they can order and get it fm Germany!!!! BTW it was very unexpectable a car at 19000 kms face such problem. Also very interesting to know a disk and clutch pad for B200 Turbo cost About USd 1,100.00 plus maintainence and labor I guess will be ttly about USD 1400~1500!!!!
Thanks god I have my old OPEL VECTRA 1995 which is still under 100K milage and work prefectly.
Any way I do not recomd anyone to buy B Class no matter which engin capacity or engine type!!!

Difficult to say about the clutch, if one wants to, it does not take 100 km to burn the clutch useless. I assume your car had a genuine failure.

The turning radius is not a reliability issue. It looks like the stalling is an issue with the car. It should not do it but remember, if you were driving your Vectra, I believe it would not fulfil emission requirements for several European cities and the car would not be any better there than the B class when it stalls. A new car has a lot of electronics for emissions control and unfortunately some cars suffer from that.

A good shop should be able to diagnose the car and fix it so that it would not bother you any more.
