    A question that has caused great debate in the past.....

    The warranty remains in place as long as the required standard of work, parts and materials is maintained.

    Mobilio is over and above the warranty - one requirement for the corrosion cover, for example, is an examination every two years (according to my book, anyway). As it's not a warranty, MB can attached whatever terms and condition they like to it.

    I know some have posted that, when the Mobilio man has arrived, he wants to be able to check the service record which would determine whether you would get charged or not.

    I've now had a chance to check this out, the car requires a B service, I've found a local MB specialist who advises that the warranty will stay in place regardless of who does the service as long as a service pack is bought from MB and obviously used. I will however lose Mobilio cover, qouted £260 +vat for the service, so add in breakdown cover and its still a lot cheaper.

    My 9 month old 12000 mile E-Class wants a C service in 2000 miles will this cost more than the value of the car ?

    I think so. I guess you guys with older cars have service books with spaces for stamps? Mine just has a wallet flap to hold a print out - the booklet says that the service record is held digitally by MB (obviously only if you get the car serviced by MB).
