Talking First time Mercedes-Benz owner, 2010 E550, in Michigan

Hi all,

I've just taken delivery on my first Mercedes-Benz, an unbelievably beautiful 2010 E550 in Capri Blue. Our family owns four Audi's, but this is such a great car and a great value I had to make the move. I'm going to have a lot of questions. Thanks in advance for the help! My E550 was shipped from Texas and has exactly 49,909 miles. This carrier had some issues with it starting, required a jump start. Right now it is sitting in my garage, dead. Ha! I've washed and waxed it, and it looks great at least. I've only driven it about 2 miles from where the carrier dropped it off to my house. I'm going to make an appointment with a nearby dealer to have the battery and some other things looked at before it hits the magic 50,000. Any ideas of what I should have them check before the warranty expires? I seriously considered paying the $2000 to get the extra 25,000 miles on the warranty, but knowing this car is "mid life", there probably aren't many things that will go wrong.

Glad to be part of this family!

Bryan

One very important item could go wrong and that is the transmission, get an extended warranty. The transmission fluid and filter should have been changed at 42k Miles so make sure this was done.

Eric,

Thanks for the advice! I'll be sure to have the transmission fluid and filter changed.
