I owned the Mercedes-Benz sedan for many years, and the cost of maintenance is outrageous. I was lucky enough that I bought a service contract and I did use it heavily. In the 7 years, It would cost me over $20,000 to fix problems which covered under the service contract, not including the regular wear and tear such like tune up, and brake.
Brake work cost $1,400 for 2 axles and tune up cost $1,200 for one year and $800 for the next year alternated, I finally get rid of it after it hit 100,000 miles when the service warranty was up.
The problem that I had with my MB was everything related to the chassis, you have to take to the MB dealer for repair. Brake, tune up, oil change, etc. This is where I got burned.
Was wondering if the cost of maintenance on the MB class B any better?
