Hi all, I wonder if you can guide me a little.
When I start my car up it makes a huge noise, only for 5 seconds or so then it goes away.
I got the car second hand from mercedes salisbury coming up to 2 years ago now with 22k on the clock.
Got full MB service history and its only done 50k now. A b3 service is due now.

Given to an ex merc technician and he's advised its either timing chain thats slackened or oil pump and that I take it to mercedes and see if they give me a goodwill gesture as the parts shouldn't go on such low mileage.
I am a taxi driver, but mainly deal in long distance work private work, no finance on car and I told them what the car would be used for before I brought it.

Has anyone had this problem before? Has anyone got a goodwill gesture? If so, how did you do it?

Its out of warranty so would I be better off going to a specialist instead?

Seems very low miles for chain issues, I’d defo approach MB and see what they offer. I assume it has full main dealer service history?

Have you considered a service plan?

Hmm one route to go down. I'll have to look into the monthly cost.

I know someone who uses MB in his chauffeur business. MB would offer no service plan because of the mileage his MB's did. They were all purchased new (separately) , An S class Limo, E class estate and a 'leathered up' Vito.Same for extended warranty..no chance. Some tentative offer's were discussed but the cost was off the scale .

B3 service price will be expensive but shouldn’t be ridiculous. What is included in that service makes it ridiculous, should only be checks brake fluid, oils and a filter/s.

Add an ATF and it will be expensive.

Quoted me £650 just for a b3 service.
ATF is due but not included in the price.

No warranty on it now.
