Well clearly I don't rate this level of service.
Back to the underclass for me.

A close reading of the MB website seems to suggest that they have started charging for courtesy cars.

They would charge for fresh air if they could get away with it!

Is the air pressure checked in the tyres on a service, not sure that they do as air cost money

They have indeed! Everything is chargeable now it would appear. My R172 is in for it's first service at MB next week and I was a bit disappointed at the level of service. No courtesy car (£50), no lift to work (I usually get this - I only work a couple of miles away). It appears that they also charge extra if you want it done while you wait.

It all comes across and gives the impression of being a bit "low rent". Someone from Mercedes - I hope you're reading this and taking it on board. It's crap.

For a bit of perspective: I also have a little Citroen C1 runabout - one of the most cheap and cheerful cars money can buy (which has also been 100% reliable and DOESN'T RUST!). I had that serviced a couple of months ago by Citroen. Funny how they had no problem having me driven to work.

Mercedes must be really feeling the pinch.

Being that I'm normally quick to point out failings in service, I should also speak up when the "boys done good", so to speak.

I can't actually fault these guy so far... But I will qualify that with the fact that it follows closely on the back if a sale! ;)

After my last 2 services at a main dealer I am seriously considering going to the Indi who does my wife's a class, apprentices would have done better job.....
