Hello my name is ***** ***** i will do my best to help you , i strive for EXCELLENT service and nothing less. Hello that means that your service is due and the letter "C" indicates that the service will take about 3 hours but that all depends on what the car actually needs by time and mileage. How long have you had the car ? Will you do your own maintanance ?

Figures lol, salesman never inform the customer. Ok your car will only get a oil change / service once a year. The dash will tell you when it is due. It will come in the letters from A-H and each letter is supposed to indicate how long the service should take. But Mercedes changes their minds and said unless the car meets the time and mileage requirement do not do certain work no matter what the car feels us so ignore all the letters. Pretty much when the icons come up then the service is due. And once it's done it should get reset. Here are the instructions to reset it. Copy and paste them.

So each year you will get a oil change and a tire rotation. And every 2nd year they will replace wipers and a dust filter for the ac system and also perform a brake fluid flush. Prices can vary from shop to shop so do some looking for the best prices. 250$ for a minor (A) service is normal and 450$ for a major (B) service is also about average. Hope this information helps.
