W205 New Car servicing intervals

19 posts in this topic

I wish to know from new W205 car owners, car bought from C&C:

Is there a 3'000km or 5'000km free servicing?

Or when is the first servicing?  25'000 km?
Typically how much will it cost?

What item is worth buying from the boutique to utilise the $3'000 service credit?

 

Thanks for any info.

I'm not sure about W205 but I serviced my W204 at 15000km, Service A and it's chargeable. Never heard of free servicing by C&C.

Based on my own experience, the only worthwhile use of the service credits is for servicing. Anything else (i.e reverse camera, integrated GPS, grooming, etc.), C&C charge a bomb and it'll be much cheaper and sometimes even better results to get whatever you need done outside.

W205 servicing interval is 15,000. Around 13k the car will prompt you to get ready to service your ride.

It's all pre-programmed. Best to use your services credit for servicing.

15k servicing is around $400. 30k servicing is around $1.1k.

30k so exp? What about the next one 45k?

Yes. It's that ex. Plus you've got to leave your car overnight for 30000km service aka B Servicing. 45000km service is normal A service but when you reach 60000km which is B+ Servicing, it'll cost even more than the normal B Service. All these excluding wear and tear items like tyres, brake pads, engine and gear box mounting, etc.

Usually by the time you're due for B+ servicing, your warranty would have ended. Go to any reputable workshop for servicing.

this SA told me to get the package while doing B+ servicing, meaning on top of B+ servicing, they will add another 2 more normal servicing.

it will cost ard 2,5k for total 3 servicing (incl B+).

worth onot?

peace of mind service from cnc -> yes.

$2.5k can service at outside workshop many times.

depends on own preference. :)

Warranty ended, pay premium for AD is just a name. Many reputable workshops outside can do an equivalently good job, have better diagnostic tools, and shorter downtime. Half a day for outside workshops compared to 2 days at AD.

As darksaint mentioned. $2.5k can service your car many times over with outside workshop compared to a B+ and two A services.

Not sure if outside reputable workshops whether they let us bring our own parts (original parts from golden link) to do servicing onot? afraid they might not entertain us...

last servicing is at 15K? maybe can do it at 27K?
i normally service at 10K to 12K interval as SG traffic too many start stop and hot weather.

I went down for my 45,000km servicing today, and probably my last servicing before the warranty is over.

I was surprised when they told me that they do engine flush and engine addictive for every engine oil change.

Was also informed that my transmission train software is not uploaded which they will update into the car; was quite surprised to know this as well.

Actually the price is not so scary considering the interval is 15k...Jap car service interval is 10k and in AD already cost about half of that..
