The C250 coupe is gone and I got a 2016 Cruze Premier RS. That about sums it up... It’s a great car with way more gadgets than the Benz had, I’ll save a ton on gas and save on insurance! And not to mention service visits.
I’ll update later but I’m doing something bizarre and trading out of my 2012 Mercedes-Benz C250 for something new and a lot less interesting! But It’s got way more gadgets and gizmos than my C250 plus better on gas, more doors (boo...), and I have the ability to start it on my phone.
I dropped the C250 off last night at the dealership and told them anything I could think of that might relate to the problems I’ve been having. They told me that they’d look into it today and get back with me. They then sent me on my way in their loaner vehicle (a 2016 C300 4Matic for those who are curious).
So as many of you know, I’ve been having some power loss issues with the C250 over the last several weeks. Thursday was not so different. Same story in that it started the day a little rough on first crank, then evened out. Initially the car seemed to be close to full power and then about 15 minutes into the drive I…

Kudos to whoever made the logo! +1 Internet for you!
Ok, an opportunity has arisen and I’m trying to weigh out all the options.
May your day be filled with “Synergy” and “Green”!
My car would make a great case study for airflow over a car. I mean look at all the lines! Honestly I find the lines really cool and yet a little disturbing how filthy my car got in less than a week.
So this just pulled up to my truck shop and I’ve been staring at it for about 20 minutes now... Please let there be a Bentley inside!
Ok so after getting the C250 dropped off to get the electrical a looked at, I decided to have them look at the paint while I was there. (If you don’t know what I’m talking about, look at my last post...I’d add a link but I’m on my phone at work and truthfully shouldn’t even be on it...so sue me)
As some of you may remember me, I figured I’d try to rejoin the world of Oppo while also enlightening you all on the world of Pre-Owned MB C250 ownership.
We had many good times, may you provide as much enjoyment to the next guy.
My wife’s birthday is coming up soon and she’s always wanted to upgrade the Camaro with Synergy Green trim door and dash panels. I had planned to get them ($450) when a close friend suggested I try vinyl first. It’s removable, customizable, and cheaper!
Negative acceleration remnants that is...aka brake dust.

She got me the Forza Xbox One Bundle for my birthday and I am ecstatic :)
Post your favorite weird/odd/not-so-kosher/non-car-people-wouldn’t-understand vehicle that you’d love to have!
I got lured into a click baity article and was pleasantly surprised to see actual research done but unpleasantly surprised to see what Indiana’s market share anomaly was....
