Thanks for visiting my blog! Please contact me if you're thinking about purchasing a Mercedes-Benz in the
The MBUSA website offers a great comparison tool. You can compare Mercedes vs. Mercedes or Mercdes vs. something else in dimensions, features and even pictures. It has helped me numerous times when someone is looking an another make that I am unfamiliar with or the exact dimensions of two of our own models. It is kind of fun to stack them up side by side and see what surprises you. Note: every manufacturer measures differently and you should try on a car in person before deciding it will or won’t work for you.
There are lots of different ways to set your clock. You can find information about your specific model and radio by visiting the How To Videos section at MBUSA.com. Or, if you’re in the neighborhood, I would be happy to set it for you. Enjoy the extra daylight!
I am a huge fan of the Mercedes-Benz Museum in Stuttgart. I visited in 2008 and I always tell people the 6 hours I spent there were not nearly enough! The automotive history is impressive and the vehicles themselves are works of art! It looks like Autoweek had a good time too!
If you take European Delivery of your new Mercedes-Benz we’ll buy the tickets!
“The history lesson was welcome and we would have enjoyed the well-planned displays even if the placards didn’t make space for English translations.”
“Galleries devoted to “voyagers” (buses, touring vehicles and wagons) “carriers” (buses and auto haulers) and “helpers” (fire, police and service vehicles) grabbed our attention as firmly as the Gullwings did, though we never want to see a Unimog as spic-and-span clean as the ones displayed at the museum are ever again.”
“We struggled to put a dollar value on the Silver Arrows before us — $150 million? $250 million? Priceless? — before resigning ourselves to simply enjoying the banked display setup.”

With the wild temperature fluctuations we have had recently I have seen a lot of Tire Pressue Monitoring System lights! Here is a video that explains what is happening and how to reset it. You can find more of these handy videos at the Owners Section of MBUSA.com.

When I demonstrate the features of a new Mercedes-Benz to clients I try to stick to the basics…there is a lot to learn and it can be overwhelming! However, there are so many things that the cars can do! Mercedes-Benz posted a few “advanced” features to their Facebook Page today. If you have been driving your Mercedes-Benz for a while and are ready to learn more then this is for you! Visit the Mercedes-Benz USA Facebook page to see more!
When you purchase or lease a new or pre-owned Mercedes-Benz you will be offered several options for additional protections in the business office. The protections range from GAP to Paintless Dent Repair. The Mercedes-Benz Financial Services website has a great section that goes over each coverage in detail. I am a Wheel and Tire Protection plan owner myself! Knowing that Mercedes-Benz stands behind these products makes the ownership experience easy!
The infrared reflecting windshield keeps the interior from getting too hot but also blocks radio waves needed to operate some electronic devices. Follow this link to see the full video on the MBUSA.com Instructional Videos site, or just look at the red spots in the picture below.
Lots of my clients have been having trouble with the new Homelink system in the 2012 Mercedes-Benz vehicles. The directions in the owners’ manuals are no good! I did publish the corrected written directions on this site but now there is a video! You can use this link to visit the Owners’ Support Instructional Videos page on MBUSA.com to watch it happen. Good luck!
