Habe sehr durchwachsene Erfahrungen in Edinburgh gemacht. Unser per Internet bestelltes Auto war leider nicht vorrätig. Die freundliche, aber bestimmte Dame „verkaufte“ uns mit Nachdruck ein Upgrade (Ca 310 Pfund mehr - Preis fast verdoppelt). Das Auto war leider in keinem sehr gutem Zustand. Die Reifen(gerade für das sehr regenreiche Gebiet) hatten wenig bis gar kein Profil. Der Wagen hatte sehr viele Vorschäden. Übergabe und Erklärung, Begleitung zum Stellplatz - Fehlanzeige. Wir mussten das Fahrzeug selber suchen. In den 14 Tagen der Nutzung nervte die Elektronik. Bei jedem Starten wollte der Bordcomputer den Mercedes Service kontaktieren, die Airbagkontrolllampe leuchtete konstant, der Spurassistent funktionierte nicht...

Die Rückgabe plus Kontrolle war sehr vorbildlich und funktionierte tadellos

Have made very mixed experiences in Edinburgh. Unfortunately, our car ordered by internet was not in stock. The friendly but determined lady "sold" us an upgrade (Ca 310 pounds more - price almost doubled). The car was unfortunately not in very good condition. The tires (especially for the very rainy area) had little or no profile. The car had a lot of previous damage. Handover and explanation, accompaniment to the pitch - no indication. We had to search for the vehicle ourselves. In the 14 days of use annoying electronics. The on-board computer wanted to contact the Mercedes Service at every start, the airbag control lamp was lit constantly, the lane assistant did not work ...

The return plus control was very exemplary and worked perfectly
