I-Phone Charger

The USB connect in my Mercedes GLK 250 SUV is inside the center glove console. To shut the console requires crushing the wire - I've gone through many of them. But even when I've it open, there appears to be a defect in the connectivity that causes the wire to become defective - it causes my I-Phone to give me an error message citing that the phone will not charge properly without an Apple charging cord - while the apple product is connected. Once this has happened, my phone continues to reject the charger cord (simply not charge) from any outlet. My mercedes dealership denies this is anyting having to do with my car, but I now have the newest IPHONE 6SPlus and it is happening again - only when I use a new Apple charging cord in the car, but not when I use a new cord in any other charger. Since Mercedes cannot find anything mechanically "wrong" with my charger, I've got to believe this is a more universal issue. Has anyone else experienced anything like this?
