First of all thank you for taking time to read this post. I did search benzworld.org for answers before posting this. I found loads of post which deals with creaking noises but nothing specific to my problem.
I got my new 2011 C300 less than two weeks back.
riven the car in light to moderate rain. Park the car in my garage and getting in/out of car causes it to squeak like a 18th century carriage.
Happened twice. Even opening the door (both driver and passenger side) causes this squeaking. Five minutes later in the garage the squeaking sound has completely disappeared. Literally jumping in and out of the car then doesn't reproduce the squeaking noise. The squeaking was fairly loud that if it happened outside my garage, I'd hear it over background noise.
I have less than 500km on the odometer and have driven on even surfaced roads with a few potholes. It never makes any squeaking noise driving on the road or when it went over a pothole.
So some of my theories include:
I didn't press the parking brake hard enough
The brakes are auto-drying (??? <- i sound stupid here)
My garage is somehow rejecting my Merc (
I wanted to ask on this forum before asking my dealer who would undoubtedly want me to bring the car in for inspection (=$$$ & wasted time). For all I know it could just be the new car breaking in (and I hope so).
Any opinions shared will be greatly appreciated. BTW, I live in Vancouver, BC and we get plenty of rain all year round. I figured if this happens three times in a row starting now, I'll take it to the dealer for inspection and cook up a storm.
