Mercedes Benz A-class W168 Development

Production of the W168 A-Class began in 1997. It was also the first front wheel drive passenger car from Mercedes-Benz. Its front engine, front wheel drive layout was quite unusual for Mercedes. To date, more than one million units have been sold worldwide.

One innovation of the W168 was a frontal-impact absorption system called the “Sandwich” (see patents DE4326 9 and DE4400132 in the name of Mercedes-Benz). In the event of a violent frontal impact, the engine and transmission would slide underneath the floor below the pedals rather than entering the passenger compartment.

The W168 became infamous in 1997 after flipping over during the traditional “moose test” performed by the Swedish automobile publication Teknikens Värld. According to the report, the W168 overturned when maneuvering to avoid the “moose”. Mercedes initially denied the problem, but then took the surprising step of recalling all units sold to date (2,600) and suspending distribution until the problem was solved by adding electronic stability control and modifying the suspension. This marked the world premiere of stability control in a small car. Nevertheless, the W168 A-Class was voted the worst-handling car in Britain in the Top Gear Survey 2007 (completed by owners of the vehicles).

As a result of the suspension stiffening described above, the ride on the W168 is very firm; this combined with the short wheelbase makes this car very jittery over rough surfaces. This is not a problem with the long wheelbase version of the car.

Najbardziej gówniane auto jakie naprawiałem. (Polish language)
Rozrusznik wyjąć – trzeba wyjąć silnik ze skrzynią i z sankami aby się dostać.
Pompę paliwa wyjąć – brak dekielka w podłodze i trzeba zdjąć ekrany pod autem i wyjąć zbiornik paliwa
Ekrany pod autem – OTWIERAJĄ SIĘ JAK DRZWI POD KĄTEM 90 STOPNI czyli musisz auto musi być podniesione minimum na 110 cm inaczej nie zdejmiesz, tylko uchylisz ekrany.
Wymiana żarówek w przednich lampach – trzeba opróżnić i wyjąć zbiornik płynu do spryskiwaczy
Zamek tylnej klapy – zawsze nie zamyka klapy bo się zabrudza przy użytkowaniu (pisze jak szybko naprawić: podnieś klapę i nalej olej samochodowy do zamka i naciskaj kilkanaście razy, zostaw olej na 5 minut po czym opuść klapę i powycieraj, będzie się wylewał przez jakiś czas ale zamek będzie zamykał)
Otwierany dach – instalacja śniedzieje i nie otwiera się dach
Siłowniki w tylnych siedzeniach – nagminnie pękają
Nadkola tylne plastikowe – przecierane przez nawet wymiarowe koła
Listwy dolne drzwi – wystarczy lekko zahaczyć i odstają
… i wiele innych ale szkoda słów.
PODSUMOWANIE: Największe gówno jakim jeździłem (porównywalne do Fordów).

A faulty design. If it turns over in an evasive manoeuvre without ESP, simply a faulty design and nothing else. Would have needed two years more of construction refinement. Quite practicle in city traffic, though. But the sandwich bottom design makes it a pain in the ass to repair. Don't buy an older one!
