- Excellent, stylish solution to high gas prices
- Moderate acceleration problems
I purchased a brand new 2005 E 320 CDI about a month ago and it has been nothing but trouble. Within a few days the car was "shuttering" when moderately accelerating between 15 and 20mph. I took it back to the dealer and was told it was because I was driving in the "comfort" mode and I should be driving in the "sport" mode. Not buying that, but trying it anyway, I took it back for a few days. No doubt within a few miles it starts again. I bring it back and they can find no diagnostic problem. I am told there is something wrong, but they don't know what it is. I tell them I don't want to be driving a car with a big question mark over it with a potential hazzard. They scratch their heads and then decide it needs all of the software reloaded. "Now" it's fixed they say and return the car. I warn them that if it happens again, it will be their car. Well, it does. Here's the clincher...they find me an exact brand new replacement and swap the cars out. You guessed it, same problem on this one! I bring the new one back and they now say they have the first vehicle fixed. They want me to test drive it for the day while they "fix" the "newer" car. They supposedly installed a new computer and everything is resolved. I take this vehicle for the day and it turns out being just as bad as it was previously.
I love the car and especially the gas mileage but what is up??? Anybody have any ideas?
