Hi Everyone, I have exactly the same problem as described above.
I took delivery of a GLC 43 AMG in November and the car has been back to the dealer twice, and I have complained to Mercedes.
Mercedes have now come back and said that the only solution is winter wheels, as this isn't a performance or safety issue.
Problem is that I have the optional 21" wheels on the car and there are no winter tyre options available. So it's a complete set of wheels that are needed at a cost of £3000.
That isn't right in my opinion, how can mercedes be allowed to do this to customers?
I would also appreciate any updates from any other owners on their problems with this issue with full lock.
It is astonishing that MB can get away with saying the cars are safe and we need to fit winter tyres to fix a fault that feels like driving with square wheels. MB customers pay a premium for a high quality drive, that simply isn't true with the GLC.
Something is seriously wrong and the car is 'Not fit for purpose
' - not sure if it's steering geometry / engineering issue or failing tyres. But as other GLC owners are seeing the problem on different tyre types and wheel sizes, I would say it's a steering geometry design fault.
I haven't found anyone who has fitted winter tyres and confirmed whether this does actually resolve the problem.
Winter tyres for my 20" wheels will cost close to £2,000 - cannot find run flat options so also have to get a compressor & gel
We took friends out for a meal last night and they were shocked at the noise, juddering and lurching in the GLC - the car looks great but is truly embarrassing when parking and driving with even slight wheel turn.
What a shambles - not a happy customer
