Disastrous Sump on dirt road

Overall an excellent car. Very pleased until one Saturday evening a fist sized hole in sump at 20Kmph from a small stone that had washed to the crown of the road. Sump guards are provided for but not sold in Australia. Available all over Europe for 150 Euro. The sump is 2 millimetre thick composite material totally unsuitable for Australian roads - repair cost $2,500 and 6 weeks without a car. Family transport regularly serviced in Tasmania Show details

Dangerous

Drove new B200 mercedes found driving position crowded. But the gear change located on right hand side below steering can be mistaken for signal indicator which is where it is in many cars, but this model has the gear change indicator embedded in the body of the indicator lever in small type up for Reverse down for drive and push on end to park. Easy to accidently knock lever up while driving into reverse which is dangerous. Or if not careful thinking it is a signal indicator one can push it up with disastrous consequences. Display panel on left of dash is also hidden from view on the right hand side by the steering wheel. Driving position cramped and cluttered. Risky buy at best not for me. Show details

2019 Mercedes B class

Can anyone tell me why the only 2019 Australian model now available is the B180 despite the B200 and B250 being available in Europe.

Be aware of low ground clearance

Many good things about it, but just be aware of the lowest ground clearance ever. In some places you can find it reported as being 190mm, in some others 134mm - 190mm, I just know that it hits to any small speed bump, hole, rock or when starting riding on a uphill. Nothing you can't deal with if driving in city, but a big ask for anything else. Show details

Love it

The absolutely perfect car for us. Just some of the things that i love that others may not mention (mostly female stuff). It's small so fits in our narrow driveway without problems and I love the dipping passenger side mirror when backing. The height of the car/seats are perfect to get in and out of for my back - not or low or high. Really really comfortable seats, huge boot and it looks beautiful!!! The white is just gorgeous - a slight creamy white

Mercedes quality! Not a single problem!

Great family car. My wife's daily driver, bought used from Mercedes 3 years ago. Now up to 100000km. Normal family usage. Absolutely nothing has failed or broken. My only complaint is that the rear wiper is a bit noisy and that I think that it's a little under-powered. A B200 next time, maybe?

Practical car

The B class is the best blend of practicality and passenger-friendliness – sure, it’s probably the least exciting to drive, but if you’re after a pragmatic, price-friendly choice, this is it. Fuel consumption was great esp when I am on cruise control (hence this is great for our weekend road trips)

B180 (2013 model, petrol); engine light on console on because engine temperature is running out of range low. Is there any way of clearing the warning light without changing the sensor ? Engine runs fine, light is irritating and its presence is affecting my trade in price on the car.
