Mercedes c200 Komp. SE. - Whines when you start it up and drive


I recently bought a 2007 Mercedes C200 Kompressor SE from the Mercedes retailer in my area - so it shouldn't have any major problems!

However, when I start it up for the first time in the morning, it seems to make a whiney sound. Almost as if it's an electric car sound.

I am just wondering if this is a problem? If so, is it serious?

I have also noticed that it struggles a bit more to get revs, so acceleration can be a little bit slower.

This is an automatic transmission.

Any help greatly appreciated.
