Get a farkin service done already. Make a deal with the dealer to give you a couple of free services to make up for it. Other than that, you didn't check the car thoroughly beforehand, did you...

We did do a test drive. The car never said that until today when we got home.

NEVER EVER buy a demo car! That's just one of those "duh" things everyone should know by now.

Think about why they sell demo cars so cheap.

A couple dozen people before you have driven it since it had 0 miles. Not one of them was concerned with how the engine was being broken-in or cared for, all they want to know is how powerful it is, how it responds and what else it can do.

Well you haven't told the dealer yet. I totally agree that it is completely unacceptable, but the first thing you should have done is rang the dealer and queried them on it. But you won't know if it was a genuine mistake or laziness or other on their part if you don't ring them.

how old are you kid? i'm sure you're very excited about your CLS your dad just bought for you, but "service C overdue for 83 days" is the least of your concerns. demo & testdrive cars get brutally assraped by countless tirekickers and avg joe's. can you say 6000rpm redline shifts on a totally cold engine? goodluck dude
