2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA250: Service A at 10,000 Miles
June 24, 2014
Recently, the Service A light lit up in our 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA250. So we dropped it off at our neighborhood dealership, W.I. Simonson Mercedes-Benz. It was a gamble, showing up without an appointment, but we did. Here's how it went.
We arrived just before 8:00 a.m. Our advisor, Kevin, processed us quickly. He offered us the standard small, medium and large service packages. The smallest package reflected all Service A items listed in the owner's manual, so we picked it over the others. We declined the shuttle offer and hoofed it instead, with plans to return when it was ready in the afternoon. At 4:30 p.m., our phone rang. The car was ready.
This was a relatively uneventful service. So what does the Service A cost? New oil and filter, fluid top-offs and an assortment of safety inspections fell just shy of $230.
Total Cost: $229.57
Total Days out of Service: None
