Mercedes Benz Roadside Assistance - not so free. FYI
I learned something new today. Stupid me left his lights on all day only to be welcomed to a dead battery. After a few minutes of panic I remembered the 24 hr. Free roadside service. I called them and after taking my information and not being able to find the VIN in the system I was put on hold only to be told later that MB USA does not provide emergency service to a Euro spec vehicle. I was promptly called back by a local MB technician who said he would jump start me for a mere $107!
As luck would have it a cabbie happened to drive by and gave me a complimentary boost! So I tipped the guy and was on my way. So much for Free MB emergency service.
I thought MB would come to the rescue no matter where your car was from. Apparently that's not true for all you Euro owners in the US.
Just an FYI.
