Thanks for visiting my blog! Please contact me if you're thinking about purchasing a Mercedes-Benz in the
In the Atlanta area they are always adding or modifying roads so it’s good that Mercedes-Benz has just released updated navigation disks. You can order these disks from your local Mercedes-Benz parts department. They should cost $249. You can also order them directly from Mercedes at www.navigation.com/mbupdate (this site’s search isn’t working at the time I’m writing this) or by calling (888)628-4483.
There are several reasons to update your navigation disk:
- Every year thousands of miles of new roads are added.
- Hundreds of Points of Interest are added or deleted.
- Improved routing efficiency can save you time and fuel.
In order to comply with the PZEV emissions standards – zero evaporative emissions – this button triggers the fuel tank to depressurize before the cap is removed so that vapors don’t escape. The ML 450′s increased fuel efficency means that the fuel tank isn’t opened as often as it would be in a non-hybrid so increased pressure could build up and therefore needs this extra step!
Just a little Mercedes minutiae…that I enjoy!
If you live in the Atlanta area please come out and support us. It is like cheering on a parade! The list of official cheering stations is below.
What a fantastic experience we had with the European Delivery Program! Everything went very smoothly. We took the TGV from Paris to Stuttgart, which is a great town. The hotel is literally right across from the train station – very nice and very conveniently located. We used our taxi vouchers for the ride to the plant the next morning. Everyone at the delivery center was very nice, and it was so exciting to see them pull my car out onto the delivery floor! We had an amazing tour of the factory and a very nice lunch after that.
When we got back to Paris to drop off the car, TT Auto was very easy to find. There are signs directing people right to their location inside the airport.
I’m attaching a few pictures. The first one shows them pulling my car onto the delivery floor. The second one shows me (very happily!) signing the papers. The third one shows what a great job the Mercedes employees do of teaching you about your new car. The next one shows us leaving a French chateau during the trip, and the last one is us dropping the car off at the airport.

The 2010 S400 HYBRID has met the Federal Alternative Motor Vehicle Credit Program requirements as a hybrid motor vehicle. As a result, all purchase customers qualify for the $1150 tax credit. This is regardless of income and tax situation, claimed on your Income Tax Return, and applies only to purchased (not leased) vehicles.
Tax credit amount : 2010 S400 HYBRID $1,150
I also just finished some training on the S400 HYBRID and it is very impressive. With a base price nearly $20,000 lower than the only other competitor, the Lexus LS Hybrid, and this tax credit that the Lexus can’t use, the S400 is a fantastic value. The technology for the new Lithium Ion batteries is groudbreaking and allows us to have a normal sized trunk as opposed to toting around a trunk full of batteries. Also, at 19 MPG in the city the S400 offeres a 26% increase in fuel economy over the S550.
I have two S400 HYBRIDs in stock here at Atlanta Classic Cars and would be happy to demonstrate the benefits of a luxurious, efficient and affordable S-Class.
(Don’t forget…Mercedes-Benz diesels also qualify for tax credits.)
I’ll post some pictures and the video once I get them from the training department. Thank you to everyone who helped me prepare!
The competition was part of the National Dealer Meeting, so I was able to see (no cameras allowed) the new E-Class Cabriolet scheduled for release this spring and the SLS AMG! Both were spectacular and will be very successful!
