Hello GLC members. I have just purchased my Range Rover Sport replacement, now we are entering our twilight years, downsizing now the kids all drive themselves, and thought the GLC was the perfect transition. So a week ago I picked up my 2020 AMG 43 GLC in Brilliant Blue. Sold new in 2021, it only had 5800kms on the clock, due to Covid no doubt. I have just put 1000kms on a trip up the coast and mostly very happy, accept for the Ackermann effect (tyre judder) on near full lock at low speed, which is very off putting. May have to live with it or go into battle with MB to get rectified. That can wait as I am not going to let that spoil my new love.
Good to be onboard any way.
Cheers

No point fighting with MB, because there isn’t a Fix for the AMG C43 Crabbing Fault.

Winter or All Season Tyres will help mask the issue, but these will scrub and rapidly wear.

Other none AMG GLC models can have replacement steering knuckles fitted. Fixing the steering geometry - but not an option for the C43, unfortunately.

Here in the UK many GLC owners - not just C43 owners - are reporting MOT Failures due Excessive Front Wheel Bush Wear, after only 50k - 60k miles. Which is almost certainly linked to the Crabbing fault - excessive force created by the Juddering and Knocking, possibly???

Great car apart from this crabbing fault, that sadly only surfaces on Right-Hand drive GLC’s - MB changed the design on these cars

Have fun and enjoy

Only way to resolve full lock judder is all season tyres and/or smaller wheels/different brand tyres, it's a well known issue with no answer. Lots
