2009 B200 manual

I'm one of those rare individuals that enjoys reading most manuals, especially about new cars. Is anyone aware of an online copy for the 2009's?

It'd be great to get caught up on it before it arrives.

This link may help cannot guarantee that the spec will be exactly the same as yours but probably a lot of items will be standard. Go down to owners manual in left hand box. At least it will give you some idea of what you are getting.

Lots of cool things in there don't appear in the CDN cars: driver-controlled headlight level adjusters, rear seat belt indicators, speed limiter function, solid glass roof option, diesel engines, airbag disabler for kiddy seat in front, folding front passenger seat,.....

But yeah it's a good start.

It appears to have been ported over from the German website (bits of pigeon english in places) they also don't guarantee everything is correct for the UK models either but basic operations and info are probably fairly standard.

It's certainly better than a non-existant Canadian manual and great for starter info.

I've even found a couple of bits of info that I haven't known in a couple of years of ownership.

It also seems better laid out than the original on-line owners manual.

I sure hope this statement in the manual is wrong:

Depending on how it is driven, the vehicle consumes a maximum of 0.8 l oil per 1,000 km.

Manufactures like to protect themselves against all claims, I had an Audi that stated in the manual oil usage could be as high as 1/2 pint per 100 miles. I think they used British pints so app. 1 liter per 250 KM , I'm sure someone will redo the math..

However AUDI was right and the car would consume all the oil it could suck down the valve stems.

Our B has not used a drop yet.

Manual is also at B-Class - Interactive Owner's Manual*[In depth*|*Keywords] Good Reading

Good to hear about the oil consumption. While normal on some engines (usually high performance), I would not have expected it on a MB. My Firehawk ate about 1L per 5,000km, but it was an aluminum block (5.7L).

That online manual is quite good, I read nearly all of it. The only bit of information I was unable to find was details about the radio (Audio 20 for 2009?) and when the heated side mirrors activate. On most cars, I assume that the rear defrost would trigger it, but it is unclear.

My salesman told me yesterday that they expect my car in the next couple of days! Knowing my luck with cars lately, it will probably be ready when I'm away on business next week.
