It's a complete rip off, but to protect your warranty, we have to dance the dance.
I just completed the B service (my first forced stealer inspection).
They did not change the oil.(I had previously twice with Mobil 1) They don't use Mobil 1 on the B class.( the B is too cheap a car)
They did not lube the hinges. (I use a special synthetic lube for the hinges.)
They did not bleed the brakes. They checked and cleaned the brakes
They checked the battery as I had also.(I had added 15 ml distilled water/cell) and charging voltage as I had also done .
They checked the pollen filter(it was like new)
And @ $105/hour+ tax's they checked all my lights as I also had.
No parts added or changed and a bill for $370 CDN. Thank you very much!!!
I watched the mechanic sit on the bench in front of my B with his feet dangling down for 25 min while the B was up on the lift.(maybe he was reading the latest popular mechanics)
We have to play their game in case something really does go wrong and without their fancy stamp they would tell us to take a hike.
