2013 Mercedes-Benz B-Class 220


Is it really a Merc?


Upholstery started to wear thin on the driver's seat.

Gear problems and loss of power whist driving.

Carbon fuel filter required replacing.

General Comments:

Apart from the 220 engine which had terrific performance in terms of acceleration and fuel economy, this car was disappointing in all other aspects. I downgraded from a C-Class Elegance which was real Merc; with the B-Class I cannot say if it is worthy to carry the Mercedes badge. Or at least not for the price I paid.

I've had the car shy of four years, and in those four years, it was at least 6 times in the workshop. After sales support left me sometimes with question marks. Going to BMW after my B-Class experience.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
