Hi,
Is there a simple way to check on software/hardware updates and recalls on my W209 2008 CLK280. The service history is all MB but does not mention this.

We hardly get recalls and there is a site somewhere where you can check.

Re the updates they are only needed in most cases when there is a problem, if no problems I would leave alone.

Thanks for all of the comments, I was rather thinking about software updates as I have seen a number of posts regarding Command, Auto Gearbox updates, and other general computer software updates. I wondered if the dealer/Indy could identify any missing updates, if any, on Star.
