Greetings from LA, California

Just got my first benz last month a 2009 C300 Sport Sedan Steel Grey with Black/Grey interior. The car already has 960 miles and I look forward to drive it for thousands more. The only complaint I have is that the gas pedal is pretty stiff. It requires a good amount of foot pressure to accelerate and get the car going. I wonder if this could be adjusted. Please share your thoughts. Thanks!!

There really isn't much you can do for this model unless you want to spend a ton of money on it. Just make sure the transmission is set to sport and not comfort so it takes off in first gear from a stop.

Don't know anything about adjusting the gas pedal on your car, mine is the same but I rather appreciate it. Keeps the Wife from launching her self into the car in-front of her. I'm sure it'll grow on you.
