I have a 2002 C230K that is in for inspection.
This car has 25000 miles and has been driven by a family member (over 65.)
The dealer came back with what seems to be an absurd price for service and
getting the car inspected.
They are going to fix the passenger window (the motor burned out on the
power window) for $300.
New brakes (Pads & rotors - (rotors??? At 25k miles) for $700.
Plus a broken light on the mirror and the inspection. These are items I have
to have done to get the car "road worthy" (this list comes to just over
The other list of so called "B" service items are Spark plugs, Air filter,
Fuel Filter, Coolant change, brake fluid and transmission service.
If I get all the items done that they recommend, the total is over $3,100
I suspect I am being gouged by this Manhattan dealership.
My questions are
1 - does this seem reasonable?
2 - do all mercedes need new brake rotors at 25000 miles (Pads I understand,
3 - is it common for a windor motor to fail at just under 5yrs old?
Having only owned Mazdas for the past 15 years, I am shocked at the items
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
