Whilst having work carried out on my car I asked the dealer for the price of a major service, I think he quoted around £375 Inc however he did add it depends what was carried out on the minor service at 40.000 + miles. I checked my records to find a filter and oil! I had service plus at the time, should other items be listed?

What should have been replaced or looked at? The minor service was carried out at around 45.000 Miles 7 months ago--Major Service 39.000 Miles. We only cover approx 3.000 miles a year so my servicing is every 2 years



C270 CDi Saloon 03

Thanks

Bryan

It you look through your service book, the items that need replacing are listed in the later pages

Your gearbox fluid should be changed 40-50k miles, and that will not be in the book

I have a C270 but it's the facelift, late 04 version, so may not have exactly the same servicing requirements. However it is on ServicePlus.

I've found that when I take it in I'm regaled with list of things that "need" doing - ATF change, coolant, wheel alignment, air conditioning "service" etc only to find that when I say the car is on ServicePlus the work evaporates.

Mandatory ATF change was brought in a few thousand VIN numbers after my car was built - so ServicePlus wouldn't cover it. On my car coolant is every 15 years.

Brake fluid is scheduled every 2 years - shouldn't be any argument about that.

Someone else pointed out that Electronic Service Sheets are now on the MB website.

Go to Ownership & Servicing, then Service and Maintenance, then Service Intervals, then scroll down to Open the Electronic Service Sheet.
