Free maintenance between 1000-3000miles?

This may be a stupid question, but I searched and wasn't able to find a thread about it; sorry if this is a repost:

I've noticed some threads where people mention taking their MBs in for a free service between 1000 and 3000 miles. Is this a special service that is offered on an individual dealer basis, or is it standard for all MBs at all dealers? I'm curious as I'm at about 2900 miles on my w204 and was wondering if it was eligible for this.

Its called a first visit inspection. And yes every new Mercedes is entitled to it. Its so we can make sure that everything is still up to Mercedes specs after its first thousand or so miles of useage.

Yes you should come in between 1000-3000 miles but at least at my dealer, we haven't turned anyone away for this inspection if they are a little over.

This must be US specific, we haven't had this for years in Europe.

After checking vital fluids, tire pressure, etc., I skipped it on my new C300.
