2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA250: First Scheduled Maintenance
June 12, 2014
As I put the 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA250 in reverse, I thought I saw a flash of light out of the corner of my left eye. It was so fast, I wasn't sure, so I put the Benz back in Park and turned off the engine.
This time, I stared straight at the IP as I restarted the motor, and sure enough, the CLA250 was not only asking for service, but complaining that it was 400 miles overdue.
After consulting the owner's manual, I confirmed the interval is 10,000 miles.
I haven't been the sole driver of the Mercedes for the past 400 miles, so I hope I would've caught that service announcement earlier, but I'm still surprised it flashes so quickly.
