Customer Question
I bought a 2011...

I bought a 2011 Mercedes about six month ago. I would like to ask a few questions. I was told by a friend that you do dinostic checks.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '11 Mercedes?

I would like to know when was the last time maintance was done Mdl ML 350

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

No, I would to get a Diagnostic, do I need an appt. and what it would cost for that.

Mechanic's Assistant: It can cost anywhere from $10 to $100, depending on the type of issue and how much of the Mercedes Mechanic's time your question is expected to take (how complex and lengthy an answer you require).

I would just like to know if it is running ok and what kind of oil, last time oil was changed changed

Mechanic's Assistant: When was your last oil change?

Don't know

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I don"t think so

There is no way to tell the last time the oil was changed unless there is a sticker in the window. If you are uncertain, you are better off replacing the oil NOW and then every 5000 miles.
