How long does A service approximately take?

I'll be going soon to the Fletcher Jones dealership in Newport Beach for my first A service? Does anyone know how long approx this takes? 1 hour, 2 hours?

And from my research it costs around $200... Is that right? Thanks

$200 bucks sounds about right, it should probably only take about an hour to do, but they usually keep it all day, unless you're the first one in line as soon as they open you probably won't get your car back right away.

^^Agree. The question is not how long the work actually takes, but how long it takes the techs to get around to doing it. Best bet is to ask the dealer directly.

Right, plus if anything problem is discovered during the service (and is under warranty or not) they'll either want to fix it or call you to approve the additional work. best to drop the car off and let them clean it afterwards and call you when its ready.

Unless you go to Annapolis Maryland, then it will cost about $306 including $5 to "top off" your windshield wiper fluid. But Hey, that's for another thread. Any M-B service takes as long as it takes you to push a wheelbarrel of money from your bank to the service center.

^^I always ask them to list everything the service includes. Then I cross off everything I feel comfortable doing myself and have them adjust the price accordingly.
