The warranty on my W202 is about to expire in roughly
6 months.

I have maintained this vehicle regularly. A/B services,
plus synthetic oil changes in-between at every 3000
to 4000-mile intervals.

The vehicle drives quite nicely and I do not detect anything
out of the ordinary in the engine or transmission. However,
I'm not a mechanic. Should I have a mechanic do a
more thorough check on the engine/transmission and
other vital parts? If so, what things should I be looking
for?

I don't want to stuck with a $$$ repair bill from problems
that occur one week after the warranty expires... :)

Thanks for any advice! :)

Sounds as if you have been looking after your car, so I wouldn't worry mate.

Whatever checks you do, sods law says that something else will occur that you haven't checked. So just relax and enjoy the car.

The only thing that I do before the Warranty runs out, is to time the service to be done . This way any last minute items I do not pay for. :D

Steering damper is a favourite ..

Also the Anti roll bar and droplinks might be worth a look.

Checking is one thing -- Getting the Dealer to accept they need doing is another. :eek:
