    Hi guys, I've had the car a week and been amazed but today its been different.

    The MPG has dropped, its been slow to change gear and slightly jolting. i've checked service history and cant see a recent auto box oil change. Its done 112k.

    Any ideas of the cost? Seems a good plan. Anyone had this at all?

    If you have a 5g autobox its around £150 -£170 at an MB indy. Main dealer probably £250+
    Should be done every 37k miles.
