The Mercedes – whether you’ve owned one or not, you’ll know what it is and what we’re talking about. You’ll also know that it’s one of the most popular vehicles in the world of automotive. However, you might not know that the manufacturers like to have a little fun when they make new models and continue legacies that you might not know anything about.
Whether you think you know everything about a Mercedes or nothing at all, these Easter eggs are going to surprise you. They’re also going to make you want to buy one, too, so be prepared to trade in your current vehicle.
1. Hidden Key Hole
Most of us use a remote control to get into our cars these days, right? Technology has afforded us convenience that we couldn’t have even dreamed of a few decades ago – but it’s not the end-all and be all. In fact, sometimes, it’s nice to have a little fun and take things back to when we used keys to open everything.
This is what Mercedes thinks, anyway. They have included a hidden keyhole just underneath the back license plate so that you can open the trunk of your car without your remote control. This is a super handy tool to have if your battery dies in the car, and you need to get something out of the trunk. Look for it in the alcove just above your license plate.
2. Remote-Controlled Sunroof
If you have a Mercedes with a sunroof, then you know what life is really all about. How many times have you opened and closed that thing yourself, though? When it’s a hot day, and you’re sweating, this might be the last thing that you feel like doing. Don’t worry, though – you don’t have to.
A hidden easter egg of a Mercedes with a sunroof that the salesperson might never have bothered to relay to you is that you can open your sunroof and windows, for that matter, with your remote control. Once you’ve pressed ‘unlock’ on your remote, press it again, but hold it down. This should open the sunroof and the windows.
Who doesn’t need a vehicle with a sunroof, especially if you live in one of the more temperate states? If you’ve been thinking about a Merc for a while, stretch your budget to get one with a sunroof. Just look up ‘title loans near me’ for your nearest short-term lender who can get you a good deal.
3. Close all Your Windows at Once
Have you ever been in a situation where you’ve got all of the windows open at once, and you don’t really feel like waiting to close them one by one? If you own a Merc or want to own one, then you don’t have to deal with this issue.
Simply press down on Tunnel Mode, and hold it down. This will close all of your windows at the same time, and it’s called Tunnel Mode because it’s supposed to be for when you go through tunnels. You can open them all at once again by doing the same thing.
4. Unlock all the Doors – Or Just Yours
Have you ever been out late at night, walked back to your car, and only wanted to unlock the driver’s door? This is a good precaution to take if you’re driving home alone and don’t want anyone to have easy access.
Luckily, with Mercedes, you can do this. Simply press down on both the lock and unlock buttons on your remote at the same time, and this will set the unlock button just to open your door. If you press down on the unlock button twice, though, you will be able to take it back to unlocking all of the doors at once. This is handy and helps you in situations where you just need to get into the car.
Before you buy your favorite Merc model, make sure you know about these hidden gems. They’ll make your life a whole lot easier and more enjoyable.
