R350 "Early" major service at 60K?
Own a 2006 R350, original owner. Have reached 65k with no major issues, other than those previously handled under warranty.
Shifted the maintenance away from the dealer due to high costs, to a local shop of strong reputation. They're pushing for a "60K Major", claiming that MB minor service intervals are inadequate to avoid unncessary, expensive breakdowns.
Anyone have any insight into the validity of the shop's claim regarding a major service this early? 65k is a minor service interval so the cost difference is significant.
