Unhappy Service A and B question

I've had my C300 now for over a year. Bought used. First service I had was B and it cost me $250. Second service was A for $100. I've gone to the same place both times. Now its time for B again and I'm being told it'll be $450...This doesn't include transmission fluid change either....i'm so confused...

Can anyone explain why both service B's would be different costs?

Thanks

Only your workshop can explain it. If you ask them, I suspect that the first B service you had was on special. You can ask what the $450 includes, e.g. oil & filter, air filter, cabin air filter, wiper blades, washer fluid, car wash, "complimentary" loan vehicle.

If you're not happy with it, get a quote from elsewhere.

These days the dealers in the US just have A and B services both of which have varying prices based on mileage and time as different levels of items are replaced, inspected or fluids changed.
