Thanks for visiting my blog! Please contact me if you're thinking about purchasing a Mercedes-Benz in the
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.
For more videos of specific models and years visit the “How To Videos” section at 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!
A few years ago Mercedes-Benz switched from Tele-aid to mbrace for our in-vehicle service provider. At the time there was not a huge difference in the services provided but we knew that, down the line, Hughes Telematics would have more to offer. Those new features will begin to appear in the 2013 SL-Class this spring in the new mbrace2. Visit the mbrace sneek peek at MBUSA.com for more details about the system including…
The mbrace app allows you to access the features of the mbrace system right from your mobile phone! You can lock and unlock the doors, locate the vehicle within a mile, contact the dealership and send info to your navigation system. This app has been available for the iPhone and Blackberry since launch. The Android App is new and is available at the Android Market.
There are lots of other Mercedes-Benz Apps available. Search for Mercedes-Benz on your mobile phone or browse some of the options at the Mercedes-Benz website.
