Mercedes Benz is one of the biggest and oldest car brands in the world ever since it started manufacturing vehicles back in 1886. Widely regarded as the brand that created the first automobile, Mercedes Benz continues to create and innovate in every vehicle that they make today. One of their most successful vehicle lines would be the C-Class, a series of compact executive cars that have been in production since 1993. Although it is part of their entry-level line of vehicles, the C-Class designs are actually modeled after their flagship S-Class. This design can clearly be seen in one of their more recent vehicles, the Mercedes Benz C320.
When the Mercedes Benz C320 first came out, it was actually redesigned as a more affordable option to their successful S-Class line. Powered by a V6 engine, the C320 came with a variety of features and accessories that were borrowed from the S-Class, minus the hefty price tag. Other components that were included in this vehicle were traction control systems, an antiskid system, and antilock four-wheel disc brakes. They've also expanded the C-Class to include other body styles, including a sports coupe. As such, the line opened up to a market segment that wanted the luxury of owning a Mercedes Benz at a much lower price point.
The Mercedes Benz C320 included standard safety features such as front and rear side airbags, and curtain side airbags. But since they also marketed the car for small families, they also included Mercedes' BabySmart child-seat recognition system. Later on, they've also included a sportier trim that has a firmer suspension, slightly wider tires, aluminum interior details, and aero body trim. Designed to go head to head against rival vehicles like the Acura TL, Audi A4, and BMW 3-Series, the Mercedes Benz C320 does not disappoint and is a firm choice under the entry-level luxury vehicle market.
One of my windows is not rolling up. What is wrong with it?
There can be a number of reasons that is causing this problem. One common reason is a faulty window regulator. Most power windows have a plastic strap or cable that drives the window up and down. With continuous use, it will dry up, become brittle, and then break eventually. It can also be caused by a dirty window regulator. If there's already too much dirt stuck on the regulator, it can affect the normal operation of the window. If the window regulator is working fine, then it could be a faulty switch, a blown fuse, or a damaged window motor. Changing the fuse is easy as counting 1 to 3. However, if it's the window regulator, window motor, or the window switch, you're going to do a little research, or you can leave the job to the professionals. Window problems can be annoying, so you'd better get them fixed as soon as possible.
I can feel that my engine hesitates when I step on the gas pedal. What seems to be the problem?
Your engine hesitates when it misfires, lacks power, or stumbles whenever you step on the gas pedal. This often means that your air and fuel mixture is lean or your ignition is not working properly. Furthermore, it tells you that you have a bad throttle position sensor. The throttle position sensor tells your vehicle's computer how far the throttle is open, and then it uses this information to determine the amount of fuel needed to be able to maintain the right fuel and air mixture. When the engine needs extra fuel, the throttle opens up more.
Other common causes are dirty fuel injectors. If the tips of the fuel injectors are clogged with varnish deposits and dirt build-up, they will not be able to spray as much fuel as they normally would. Instead of spraying a fine mist, it will dribble fuel instead. This will then create a lean fuel mixture. Your fuel injectors need to be cleaned by this time. If it is still a mild case, a high-quality fuel injector cleaner additive can do the job. For severe cases, you're going to need professional cleaning equipment. Other causes of stumbling or hesitating acceleration are vacuum leaks, a weak spark from bad coils, erratic ignition timing, low fuel pressure, and contaminated gasoline.
Why are my tires wearing out too quickly?
Your tires wear out too quickly because of several reasons. One is when your tires are not inflated with the right air pressure. If your tires are over- or under-inflated, they will wear out unevenly and faster than they normally would. Another reason is when your tires are not properly aligned and balanced. If your suspension components are worn, this can also cause your tires to retire earlier than the usual. To prevent all these from happening, make sure that you practice proper tire maintenance as well as suspension system maintenance.
