2008 Mercedes Benz C300: Not so Minor Anymore

December 14, 2007

If you're really sharp, you may be saying to yourself "That's not a 2008 Mercedes Benz C Class." And you'd be right. This is the car the dealership gives you when they call you back to deliver a car that was, in fact, not fixed.

"The tech thought I meant the rear window sunshade and since your car doesn't have one of those, he disregarded my comments" That's what our service advisor said. They replaced the sunroof switch (we're halfway done) but failed to test the entire sunroof and shades - not good dude.

Here's the best part, since I was assured the car was done I brought my 18 month old daughter with me to pick up the car. The time we spent waiting for the dealer to figure out why no one did a simple test of the whole sunroof and shade after instaling the switch was the time my daughter should have spent taking a nap - hear that screaming in the background? That's her and now neither one of us is very happy.

How much is a loaded Malibu again? Or Altima, or Maxima or Accord or....
