    I have often suggested that the service history of modern Mercedes-Benz might, or should be held on a main database. I have been told this does not happen, but I am still far from convinced. Today I contacted Mobilo on their European free-phone number and before arranging for a technician to...

    Service History Printouts

    Hi My W202 has a full set of stamps from Puttocks/Tony Purslow in Guildford. Unfortunately I do not have any of the invoices so I have no idea what has been done except that the 80k service last year cost over £1000 so it must have been pretty comprehensive. Do you reckon I would be able to...

    Dear Members. I need your opinion. I bought a Jan 2002 51 plate CLK 200k last month from Mercedes of Doncaster over the internet. (I am in London) I totally relied on the description and assurances given to me by the dealer. The car has covered 55,000 and has all the services carried out...

    High mileage - no history - what's first?

    My motor has just over 100K recorded but judging by the state of the interior it has done more... and has no history whatsoever. I'll be putting it in to a mechanic to look over and service but is there anything I'd be recommended to do right away, or ensure that he does? I want to avoid...
