Warranty Expiring

Hi, I live in Alberta, Canada and have a 2008 Mercedes C230 with about 78 000kms on it. The warranty on it is about to expire. Should I get a third party to inspect it or do you think it would be fine to just bring it into Mercedes to get it looked at. I have squeeking while breaking and when I turn the steering wheel sometimes so I will ask to get those looked at. Is there anything else I should get them to look at? Should I get extended warranty since I'm not a car person and can't really fix things myself. Any advise would be appreciated.

Thanks Samantha

I think spending about $150 for independent inspection is good insurance for not having $3000 repair 500 miles after warranty expires. You can tell it is PPI (pre purchase inspection)
Extended warranties are good business for the selling companies, but if that will make you sleep better -it might be worth your money.
Check for common issues with your model in proper body section and welcome to the forum.
