Follow-up costs from poor service


New member
We recently had at our MB dealer perform a Service B, $1500+. 100 miles later, the power steering started squeaking, steering became difficult. At the same time we got a Coolant Level Low light on the dashboard. We were camping very remotely. So to help us getting home, I used the only oil I had on board: motor oil for the generator. Back to MB, they want now $700 to flush the lines and replace a hose. My position is that they did not check and replenish all liquids as I expected them based on the item checklist and as such the repair is a result of them not servicing the van correctly. Am I wrong?

You are the one who put wrong fluid and that generate required job.
What is your question?

I experienced similar as a young adult and realized I'd better learn how to do my own preventive maintenance.

If you want something done right, sometimes you gotta to do it yourself.

The MB dealership did a half arsed job. Unfortunately, when you put the wrong fluid in the power steering, that made matters worse. To coin a phrase, "dude, do you wrench?" DIY, if you want it done right these days, apparently.
