    My car

    I picked up my Mercedes Class C200 last week from Robinsons in Norwich who are incidentally superb. This is the new 2014 model. It's rare in as much as it's a petrol and a manual. I am bitterly disappointed with the car which is not up to modern standards. On the plus note, externally it looks good, the seats are comfortable as is the driving position, it came with many extras as standard, the safety equipment is good and I paid for the 'intelligent lights' which are LED and work quite well. Unfortunately there are to many sub-standard areas. I chose leather, this is poor quality, the ride around town or on uneven country lanes is unsettling, judders and noisy even on 'comfort setting'. The piano black interior looks cheap and if there are sudden temperature changes or going through town at slow speed there are a lot of creaks, squeaks and general cabin noise. In fact the suspension is so noisy it sounds like I'm grounding it. The equipment should be easy to use but it's not. The instruction manual is really only half a manual & refers to the digital manual within the cars system. This is impossible to use as it frequently freezes, at best is slow and confusing. The touch pad does not work and only serves to obscure the much better and more practical rotary dial. In fact ever facet of this car is overly complex and fiddly to use whilst on the go. The petrol engine is unrefined and noisier than my outgoing Audi 2.7 V6 diesel, disappointed. Will change when new A4 arrives.
