A vibration felt through the center floor of the vehicle can be caused by driveshaft flex discs, which crack and shred, causing excessive driveshaft movement. Not repairing these can cause damage to the driveshaft center support bearing, or, in the worst case scenario, damage to the transmission or differential.

If you have ever locked yourself out of your C240, you know what a pain, embarrassing, nightmare it is. Dogs in car, engine on etc. Luckily I had someone close by available to help get my spare key. Does anyone know if we can disable that "auto-lock" feature?

My C240 recently stalled twice within one week, Check engine light on only for a few minutes, then wouldn't start after gassing up. This car has scheduled maintenance up-to-date.
Towed to a shop 3 days ago. Seems like it should be an easy fix or not?
