Smile Hello everyone!

Just bought my first car, used of course, a 2002 MB A160 (W168) classic automatic.
It doesn't have an owner manual and I have no ideea what is what.
So I do have one question what do the letters mean on the automatic transmission? From what I can figure D is drive but is has - and + what are those used for? P is parking, N is neutral, W is winter and S is standard.
I am correct?
And at the last MOT that came with the car and was done last month it has an Advisory Notice issued which says:

Front Anti-roll bar rubber bush deteriorated but not resulting in excessive movement (2.4.G.3)

Parking brake Your vehicle has only just met the required park brake efficiency. It would appear that the braking system requires adjustment or repair. (3.7.A.10)

I looked these up on the internet found a bit about what it means etc but not sure how much it would cost to repair? Should I go to MB or another service?
Atfer I finish with all the paperwork for the car v5, insurance etc was thinking of taking the car to a mechanic for a check, it has been repaired before because it's a v car cat C it looks and drives ok, it has all mot history, done hpi check everything is ok, but because I never had a car before I don't know how it's suppose to sound and if it is something that needs fixing. I don'tknow how well it's been repaired etc cause it has a v5 so that means the VIC was done, but not sure if this should give me peace of mind or not.

Sorry if my message sound silly but I am total begginer at these things and thanks for reading.

Welcome aboard, and congrats on your new purchase.

+ / - on your automatic gear level allows you to manually shift gears.
S stands for Sport; your engine will rev more before shifting a gear.

You'll find accurate answers in the dedicated A-class forum, where other owners will share their knowledge.

Good luck
