Most people seem to moan about their dealers. I have moaned in the past but glad to report that I have had a very pleasant experience from my local MB dealer. Last week I had a letter from MB saying they would like to inspect and carry out some tests on the braking system on my 2003 E-class estate S211. Basically it was a safety recall. I phoned the dealer and they wanted the car in ASAP so it went in Tuesday morning. Whilst they had it I asked them to sort out the diesel smell, obviously a diesel leak near the engine, 2 other main dealers have failed to fix this fault. They were very courteous, they had the car for 2 1/2 days and they told me they have replaced all the fuel pipes and sorted the brake problem, the car was given a full valet inside and out and it cost me.............nothing! I have driven the car back to work and it does not smell like and old tractor anymore. Well done Mercedes of Kettering My past bad experience with them is nearly forgotten.
