If that is the only problem you have with a C200K then you are in luck.
Mine's been back to the dealer twenty-five times with problem after problem,
many of them squeaking and creaking noises coming from everywhere. I suggest
you start keeping a paper record of every trip to the dealer, what was said,
how much time you wasted etc. It'll come in handy later when they still
haven't fixed your car two years later....
Interesting! We have two (2), 2000, C230Ks and had a single 1994, C280
prior to that. These were the are/were the most trouble free cars we have
ever owned. Where is the C200K sold? We are in Indiana, USA.
The noise could be from various sources, my E320 also has such a noise -
occasionally. I believe it's from the spring not being exactly centered
in its rubber pad; this causes a coil of the spring to rub on the lower
control arm. It sounds much worse than it is.
Just talked to a lexus saleswoman. She proudly told me all her lexus cars
have dealer guarantee for trouble-free in the first three years and that
that that blah blah blah. That really made me a mecedes owner felt
uncomfortable. However, last three years I've been taken my C200 back to
dealer for more than 6 times (not for regular service). I really hate toyota
and lexus--cheap car for cheapee.
