Question C-300 Service B

I purchased a loaner C-300 in May 2018 with 9,000 miles. Service A was performed by the dealership. A year later (May 2019) and only 2,000 additional miles (total 11,000 miles), the car is indicating to perform service B. The major work in service B is oil/filter change and the rest is fluid level check and cabin air filter and its costs about $650.00. My questions is "Can I just do the oil change at the dealer ship and the rest by another les expensive mechanic? By doing that am I jeopardizing the warranty coverage?

I will really appreciate your input. Thanks

It should not harm your warranty status. Just make sure you keep the
receipts listing the parts and labor from the independent shop.

Just have an oil change place do the oil. Be sure to specify the correct oil and use a good brand of oil and filter. Or just have indi do the entire job.
