Had Good Experience at Dealership
Okay this is not for a Mercedes, but for a Subaru Forester with over 112,000 miles. Noticed last Friday that my wife's 2001 Subaru had a torn CV boot for the front right side axle next to the differential (did not have time to fix myself which would have taken me several days) so I dropped it off at the Subaru dealer this morning. Total cost to repair was $113.95. The service tech noticed that the serpentine belt should be replaced, so I said go for it, total cost was $89.95. Total cost of repairs was $213.86. They gave the car an AAA+ wash job, but when I looked under the hood I was amazed, they streamed cleaned the engine bay!!! The car looks like new! Now this is the funny part of the story is, a couple of months ago my wife went to the very same dealer to have wiper blades replaced (it was raining and she needed the wiper blades working right then and now), they did a very bad job! Subaru sends out customer surveys when you have the car repaired at dealerships, I sent in a very negative reply, but with this experience all is forgiven. How much would the above cost if it was a Mercedes?
