Some time ago we got a new car. It’s Mercedes-Benz B-class again, but a bit newer. However, this new car has some bugs.

First thing that i’ve notice is that rear view mirror if switched to ‘night mode’ has different angle, so every time we go from ‘day’ to ‘night’ or back we need to adjust it.

Another thing is even better. Sometime in the morning it give us a message in red: ‘Reversing not possible. Consult workshop’. And reverse gear is indeed does not work. Moreover it only uses odd gears from now on: 1-3-5-7, and revs are usually very high as well. At first we were really upset and even got it to the workshop. Needless to say, they did not fix or even detected the problem. However it persists. Right this morning we had the message again. Luckily there is a workaround. Yes, you just need to reboot it. Twice. Turn off, take out the key, start again. Repeat. And the message is gone, plus gearbox is working with all gears now. Simple fix.
