The best hands for maintenance and upkeep of your car are yours if you know what you are doing, are patient to follow the manual bread crumbs, and have the time and inclination for it.
Next, the most convenient in comfort, is the dealer -if you trust him and has a decent setup. Here the limelight is taken by the dealer and your wallet.
Otherwise, find a great independent, well equipped shop specializing in Mercedes to make them your best friends.
Note that if you do not do the work yourself you have to watch them like a hog and make sure there are no misunderstandings of what, how, when has to be done, all with your previous approval. Caveat emptor: buyer beware.
A car would show appreciation for preventive maintenance by never leaving his owner stranded.
Defensive Driving is never having to say you're sorry: a true love story between man and machine.
