Hi from united kingdom
I purchased a Mercedes 320 cdi elegance in June 2010 the car is a 2003 model w211 80,000 miles.
since that date I have had numerous faults.
1 drivers external mirror sometimes does not open and led indicator is permanently dead not solved.
2 Battery dead have bought new one Â£170 with fitting.
3 Both front suspension springs broken replaced under 6 month warranty.
4 last 3 weeks drivers central locking knob bounces and sometimes does not unlock this seems worse with current cold spell.
5 warning that convenience items have been switched off to protect low battery,checked with Mercedes told if only i do local runs (100 per week) i should occasionally use a trickle charger funny its a new battery.
(ignoring the faults it is a great ride,and is better than my previous 5 series)
would be grateful for anyone's advice on above.
