#3608 of 7297 Helms vs Lakeview
Jun 13, 2001 (4:45 pm)
To those NY'ers interested, I leased my 2000 C280 through Lakeview and their service department is excellent. They also provide loaners (call in advance). Sometimes their loaners are NOT MB but at least they give you something.
Helms is a nice dealer too but I've never done business with them so I can't comment. As far as Ralleye Mercedes in Roslyn is concerned... NAH. A bunch of snobs and they look at the C class as a POOR MAN's CAR. I may be exaggerating but just visit this dealership and you'll know exactly what I mean.

When I ordered my C320, the salesperson told me that the dealership plans to issue Mercedes loaners to its customers for scheduled maintenance in the near future. In the past, they have shuttled me to the nearby Bayside Long Island RR Station, so I've never needed a loaner. When I went to Rallye, they totally ignored me, even when I told them that I was friendly with a very good customer of theirs. From the recent comments, it seems that Lakeview and Helms Bros. have a similar, more hospitable atmosphere.

I picked up my C240 on Tuesday night. It has Michelin tires on them. It could be because of sirus32's tire vibrations (same dealer). Did notice that the easy exit feature does not work, but that's OK. Everything seem to work fine.
#3611 of 7297 Rust Protection and MB Cars

I was just wondering if any members have had their MB rust protected and undercoated? I've heard from some people that it's not required for MB cars. Is this fact or fiction?

Dat -- Good luck with your new car. If you have the C1 package, your exit feature should work. Be sure to check out if you have it enabled by using the multifunction steering wheel button per your manual.

#3614 of 7297 Rust Protection and Exit Feature

2002 mbenz - I read somewhere from MB that their cars don't need Rust Protection and they specifically states NOT to do it, voids the warranty.
michhalla - I did set it to steering/seat setting and it does work (opens up), but then it would not set it back to my seating position. I should play with some more though.
