AMG C43 a Smooth Operator

While the news is fixated on the AMG C63 being a modern muscle car of German make, the C43 almost slips under the radar.

The new C43 coupe is set to make the bridge point between classy comfortable smooth rides and blood boiling explosively fast V-8 Twin-Turbocharged Engine.

It’s made to look sleek, drive smooth, and roar when you need it to, the ideal car for someone who wants versatility out of their car.

 

Daimler’s Mercedes-AMG division has largely made its name on theatrics: things like burly sounding engines, flashy styling add-ons, and wild performance. It’s practically the German equivalent of classic American muscle-car culture, as we saw with the latest C63 S coupe. Its 503-hp, twin-turbocharged V-8 makes a beastly noise and goes like stink, while its rear-wheel-drive setup makes tail-out antics a snap. It also looks the business with huge wheels and flared haunches that set it apart from lesser C-class coupes.

While the new Mercedes-AMG C43 coupe shares all but one digit in its name, it’s really a completely different animal, one considerably lower on the food chain. Continue Reading

The Benz-Buccaneers Cool Club

Mercedes and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have been in partnership for over a decade now, and it seems there is no plan to break ties. The Buccaneers have 500 exclusive premium Mercedes seats and of them almost all have already sold out.

The exclusive Mercedes seats offer the best experience of the game in stadium just as Mercedes intends to offer the best ride of all for its owners.

 

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Tampa Bay area Mercedes-Benz dealers announced today an extension of their partnership, which is highlighted by the addition of naming rights to the all-new Hall of Fame Club at Raymond James Stadium. All of the nearly 500 seats have already sold out for the 2016 season, however, the team has established a waiting list for interested prospects.

The Mercedes-Benz Hall of Fame Club is one of two premium seating concepts featuring all-inclusive food and beverage options, air-conditioned comfort and some of the best views of the game action.

This elevated viewing experience at Raymond James Stadium aligns with the luxury, class and comfort the Mercedes-Benz brand symbolizes. Continue Reading

New Mercedes Off-Roading E-Class

Mercedes has released yet another new model, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class All-Terrain which dares to do the unthinkable and take a luxury brand car off road or on the highway, or wherever life would take you. This relatively conservative looking off-roader has jacked up suspension and 4Matic all-wheel drive giving it the power to go wherever you’d need a Benz to go, and then some.

 

Joining Volvo’s new V90 Cross Country in the crossover-flavored, executive estate segment, is Mercedes-Benz’s E-Class All-Terain, teased here just a few hours ahead of its online reveal, which will be followed by a world premiere in Paris next week.

The video shows the All-Terrain’s plastic body cladding, which may (or may not) come in handy if any drivers decide to leave the safety of the road and head on to a short off-road adventure, helped by a generous ride height, adjustable air suspension and 4Matic all-wheel drive system.

Since it will keep the shell, platform and most of the nuts and bolts of the latest Mercedes-Benz E-Class Estate, expect an identical interior with all the equipment offered as standard or on the options list, Continue Reading

Brand New Mercedes Truck Caught On Film

The first sighting of the first-ever Mercedes-Benz pickup truck has finally come with a YouTube video from walkoART who managed to take some sweet footage of the camo textured Mercedes Benz and upload it online for us to see.

If you wanted anything like a Mercedes pickup before, you’d have to do some serious suspension overhaul on their SUVs, what a wonderful time to be alive.

 

We’ve known about Mercedes-Benz’s first-ever pickup truck for over a year, but until now, we haven’t seen a prototype. That changes today though, because a heavily camouflaged pickup has been captured on public roads in Germany. The truck is rumored to debut by the end of this year, so it’s likely production-ready at this point.

The video of the truck, rumored to be called the GLT, comes to us from YouTuber walkoART – Videos, who features spy shots of various Mercedes-Benz prototypes on their channel.

Even under heavy covering, you can pretty clearly see a Metris-esque front facia. Otherwise, the truck looks not unlike the new Honda Ridgeline. Continue Reading

Maybe You Should Avoid the Mercedes-Benz EU Delivery Program

While Mercedes-Benz may be the best in regards to the quality of their luxury cards, it seems some customer services have lost their qualities over time and are desperately in need of updates.

Rob Enderle has discussed his Mercedes tour in Germany and just how bad it was, but while there were bumps in the road of his vacation, he was saved by the quality of the new Mercedes that he took the trip with.

If you’re experiencing too many bumps in the road while driving your Mercedes, click here and consider what you can do to smooth out your ride.

 

I just returned from a trip to Germany with my wife to pick up our new car.  If you read the current article on this trip from a Mercedes-Benz sales person it sounds like a drive from heaven but, at least from my experience, it is the drive from hell.  

It isn’t even a great Mercedes-Benz experience, actually that is a massive understatement, it was a horrid experience.  Not only did we not have a particularly great time, you probably won’t get us on another vacation outside of the US, well, ever.   

So the trip in the article looks amazing, but that isn’t the trip we actually got at all.  At one point I literally wanted to take the car back where I picked it up and just go home. Continue Reading

Mercedes Benz Owners Look to Autonomous Cars

Surveys show that Mercedes drivers are among those who most desire for fully self-driving cars, while drivers of American trucks like Jeep and Dodge are among the lowest interest groups for the emerging technology. Perhaps it is ultra-luxury cars that will be the only vehicles to ever tout this feature, while trucks and SUVs will forever be left in the dark ages of requiring driver participation.

Not looking forward to autonomous cars for yourself? Check out our Mercedes Benz steering parts to keep your car controlling like new.

 

When you look at other cars on the road, do you wonder which of your fellow drivers are most wishing they were doing something else? In a new survey published this month, the answer is Mercedes-Benz and Infiniti drivers.

The survey, conducted by MaritzCX, asked 12,353 vehicle owners about their thoughts on autonomous cars. As reported in Bloomberg, about 27 percent of Mercedes-Benz and Infiniti owners say that are “very interested” in purchasing a fully autonomous car should they become available. That’s more than any the owners of other brand surveyed.

For comparison, about 14 percent of BMW owners said they were “very interested” in the technology. Ram owners were the least likely to buy a self-driving car, with only about 6 percent saying they were “very interested.” Jeep owners also ranked low, at about 8 percent. Continue Reading

Mercedes Benz Maybach RC Car

We were not expecting to see the Maybach 6 from Mercedes to be presented as it was at Pebble Beach. The massive long, sleek beast was something we’d have expected to be driven about by a professional who’d hop out and run on about how great of a ride it was. What we got instead was what may be the most expensive RC car ever driven.

For those of you looking to create some power in your existing car, click here to check out our available engines.

 

Mercedes-Benz unveiled its Vision 6 Maybach concept car at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance last weekend to great fanfare. It’s a huge, sleek, red gullwing coupe with an electric drivetrain and over 700 horsepower. And now, thanks to this video, we can see it’s controlled by a remote.

Marchettino, an Italy-based car-spotter, caught video of an official using a video game-like controller to move the car back and forth, and even turn the front wheels, all while the actual cabin stays empty. He uses the controls to position the car on the grass, and later, load it onto a trailer with ease. Continue Reading

Takata airbags have become a popular brand for almost every auto-industry giant, including Mercedes-Benz, Ferrari, Toyota, Volkswagen and more. Sadly though, it looks like Mercedes would have benefitted from manufacturing their own safety measures for their vehicles as 2016 and 2017 Takata airbags have been found with a fault that has caused 13 deaths and over 100 injuries.

While it seems the best measure is to follow the recall due to the externally manufactured part, for those with older Mercedes be sure to look into keeping your drive safe. We’d recommend looking into Steering and fresh Brakes to increase control on the road.

 

Ferrari, Mercedes-Benz and Daimler Van vehicles have been added to a list of new cars and trucks being sold with potentially defective airbags made by Takata Corp. 

A report released Wednesday by Sen. Bill Nelson (D-Fla.), who leads a Senate commerce committee, cites several makes and models that are equipped with part in question. 

Takata-made airbags are part of an unprecedented recall that spans 14 automakers and 22 brands, and includes some 34 million vehicles in the U.S. 

At the heart of the recall is an airbag inflator that can become explosive and send metal pieces flying through the cabin of the vehicle when it’s deployed. 

Nelson’s report adds these vehicles to the list of new cars and trucks with defective airbag inflators: Continue Reading

Due to an unfortunate flaw in the 2016 Mercedes-Benz C300 4Matic’s power assisted steering program the line of cars has been recalled to prevent increased risk of crash. There are no reported crashes so far, but due to a software error in the power steering system there could be a failure of power steering reducing the responsiveness of the vehicle. To find replacement steering components for your Mercedes, click here.

 

2016 Mercedes-Benz C300 4Matic Recalled For Steering Problem

WASHINGTON — Mercedes-Benz USA is recalling 17 2016 Mercedes-Benz C300 4Matic sedans because of a steering problem, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

“In the affected vehicles, the electric power steering assist system may shut down due to a software error,” NHTSA said in its recall summary. “If the vehicle experiences a loss of power steering assist, extra steering effort will be required at lower speeds, increasing the risk of a crash.”

The affected vehicles were built from November 4, 2015 to March 1, 2016.

A Mercedes-Benz spokeswoman did not respond immediately to a query from Edmunds asking if there are any injuries or crashes linked to the recall. Continue Reading

Mercedes-Benz’s parent company Daimler has applied for a new patent that should make driving in the snow much safer. The design shows us a small collection unit that grabs water dripping down the back window which gets moved to a holding container. When the car detects snow, that collected water gets ran through a heating process that gets it just warm enough to melt snow. Once warm enough, the water gets sprayed directly on the tires by three nozzles.

With this system in place, your Mercedes-Benz steering should see a marked improvement in freezing weather.

 

A patent recently filed by Mercedes-Benz parent company Daimler sheds light on a new technology that could make driving in snowy and icy conditions much safer.

A diagram submitted with the patent illustrates an innovative system that improves traction by spraying hot water on tires in order to melt snow and ice. The water is pumped out of a small tank it’s stored in and through a heat exchanger, a process that makes it hot enough to melt snow. It’s then sprayed directly onto the spinning tire by three small nozzles integrated into the wheel well. Sensors presumably send a signal to the ECU when the tires themselves need to be de-iced.

The system is designed to collect water as it drips down the rear window — it can be either rainwater, water from a car wash, or melting snow. Drivers who live in Seattle shouldn’t need to top up the tank; those who live in Palm Springs and occasionally take a weekend trip to a ski resort, though, will likely need to fill up before they leave.

Though it only affects 28 Mercedes-Benz SLK roadsters in all of Australia, you may want to keep your ear to the ground if you have one in the US, too. While recalls like this are usually isolated to one country, Mercedes-Benz Korea has also implemented a recall for their SLK class vehicles. Australia’s recall is due to some steering issues and the one in South Korea is due to a malfunction that keeps the rear tires’ from aligning properly.

Should Mercedes-Benz recall SLKs on this side of the Pacific for any reason be it transmission, steering or anything else, you can rest assured that we’ll be there to let you know.

 

Mercedes-Benz has recalled its SLK roadster this week, due to a potential steering safety issue.

The carmaker has identified a weakness with the nuts fitted to the vehicle’s tie rods on the rear axle, which may be the incorrect size.

Should this be the case, the nuts may be allowed to loosen, which could alter the steering characteristics of the vehicle.

Unpredictable steering may cause a hazard to the vehicle occupants and other road users. Continue Reading

Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg of the Mercedes AMG Petronas racing team ran into each other within a few moments after the 2016 F1 Spanish Grand Prix began. This was especially disheartening for the team considering Hamilton and Rosberg had won first and second spots in the starting grid. How’s that for bad luck?

Don’t let yourself lose control of your car… Check out what we have available for Mercedes-Benz steering and suspension.

 

The unfortunate event happened when Rosberg got past Hamilton on the first bend. Moments later, the reigning F1 champion tried overtaking his teammate from the inside. Rosberg tried blocking the move resulting to Hamilton hitting the grass. However, the Silver Arrow of the Briton spun and struck the car of the German along the way, which took them out of the race.

Niki Lauda, the team’s non-executive chairman, pinned the blame to Hamilton, according to a report. The F1 legend said the current world champion became too aggressive. Despite his initial take on the matter, he pointed out that he still needed to listen to the explanation of each driver.

Toto Wolff, the motorsport director of the group, agreed with Lauda’s observation. But he noted that there is also a fault on Rosberg’s part. Therefore, he will have to wait for the decision of the stewards. Continue Reading

Dog-drives-car-down-motorway-in-rush-hour--via-Mercury PressHow would you react if you saw a dog driving on a busy road during rush hour? That’s exactly what Oliver Gee thought he saw during a commute home -a dog driving a Mercedes Benz C Class. Though it turned out that the dog was just sitting on the lap of its owner -and the person who was really driving the vehicle- and not actually controlling the Mercedes’ steering, Gee was able to snap a great photo of what he saw.

 

A private detective was stunned when he saw what appeared to be a dog driving a Mercedes car merrily down a motorway’s fast lane during rush hour.

Oliver Gee was heading home from work on the M6 in Cheshire when he saw the hound behind the wheel of the C class in the corner of his eye.

Quick as a flash the 33-year-old told his colleague Chris Lambert to get the camera ready as they passed the motoring mutt again.

But the dad-of-two realized [sic] it was in fact a human driver with a dog on his lap, seemingly allowing it to lean on the wheel with its feet. Continue Reading

rockingham-speedway--via-daily-journalThe Rockingham Speedway is going to be up for auction come May 5, and if you’ve got the money sitting around you could be the next owner.
