I took the car in to get the alternator changed out after getting a diagnostic on the battery and the alternator which stated no power from the alternator. The battery was fine after recharging. After they installed it, all of a sudden the starter is not working anymore.

I own an 06 C230, bought it used and it's been an awesome car. Door handles, who cares, great car for what I paid 2 years ago with 60k on it. I have a friend with an 07 and he's been plagued with expensive problems, mainly because he tries to work on it himself, then he's calling to get it in my shop. Let's use this common sense, it's a luxury car no matter what, you have to treat it as such, pampered at times, driven hard others. But above all else, TAKE CARE OF IT!!! Cheap begets trouble with maint and parts, if you aren't ready for the expense of a repair, maybe it's not the right car for you. Yet again, I'm not out a single repair in 2 years, I changed the brakes because I wanted to, yes I upgraded from the factory pads, and yes it gets rotors every time, a nice oil service with euro 5w40 synthetic every 4-5k.. this is what we signed up for, and if it breaks well... you have to pay to play. Besides the other German cars really like attention too often, dog your C and so will it. It's worth the investment to buy to good parts and have someone that understands the vehicle working on it. The techs here are trying to help, you're giving them nothing to go off of and some of these comments tell me that you should DEFINATELY NOT own a car like this, and most certainly not try to work on it. No picking, just saying.. you bought a Benz, suck it up, and find a shop you trust or someone you trust that won't walk you through a valley of lies because you have a hood ornament. That's what I do for my customers, and that's why I love this car, it's a love affair, it's family, and yet it's still a car. Enjoy your silver star, but treat her right, she'll return the favor.

Last 3 days when I start car it just turn over but won't start, first day it took 5 times before it started then had no problem running. 2nd day it took 7 times before it started and after starting had no problem starting. 3rd day it took 7 times car ran fine, couple hours later tried to start and it just turned over. Tried repeatly thru out the afternoon even jumped it off still wouldn't start. Next day was going to have it to owed and it started right up. What would cause the car to act this way?

when driving it starts off fine then a sound like the supercharger can be heard and it not the supercharger regular sound it constant and annoying buzz and then the rpm goes up quickly when trying to picking up speed and goes down to 30 and then the car won't drive and it start to decrease in speed until pullover then i can drive on the rode.
another note is that i let my friend drive my car and he was switching the comfort and speed mode while driving a lot.

I have a 2007 C230 and there's this knocking sound coming out of the passenger side and I'm having trouble figuring out what it is.

most of the time, i would hear the knocking sound when i press down on the breaks (coming to a complete stop) and when i go over road bumps i would hear a loud knock coming out of the front right side of my car. sometimes i would hear it when i turn my steering wheel all the way to one side.

I took it to a couple of mechanics and no one could figure out what the problem is. some people recommended that i change my sway bar link. so i went ahead and replaced the sway bar link on the right side but that didn't fix the problem.

i would really appreciate if someone could help me with this
