Hello Folks my car has about 21,000 miles and service A notice came out on the dash.

I will be taking my Benz to the dealer this week for the required maintenance( I pre paid 3 services when I bought the car)

Things that need to be change as the maintenance booklet says:

Oil change
Dust Filter
Break fluid

Should I demand Coolant build change?
Are break pads included in the pre-paid maintenance?

Any suggestion to inform my advisor before taking my car to MB dealer is really appreciated.

Thank you all

Jonathan,

Check your local MB dealer and ask them about A and B services?

FYI MB service schedule every 10K alternate b/w A&B services
Example: for new car, A service when you reach 10k then B service when you reach 20K and A service again when you reach 30K and so on....

It's strange to me that your car reach 21k and the A service message come up? when the car reachs 20k B message should appear on dashboard not A! maybe I am missing something!

I don't think replace brake pads and cooling come with pre-paid maintenance. but I can be wrong check with your MB dealer when you purchase the car.

So basically the "A" service is an oil change, new wiper blades and a bunch of items checked. And for this a dealer gets close to $600. :eek:
