Whats Included

Before any work is carried out, your vehicle is thoroughly inspected. Initially it will be road tested to ensure that your vehicle performs correctly and that the suspension, brakes and tracking are correct. Any issues are reported and your vehicle is then handed over to a service technician. 

 

From here your vehicle has a complete system code read which will report any recorded faults the vehicle may have stored in its memory (A full report can be provided free of charge if requested).

 

The vehicle then makes its way onto a service ramp, the oil is drained and the oil filter is renewed. Whilst the oil is draining the wheels are removed, something that is not done during routine servicing at Mercedes-Benz, and all serviceable items (fluids, filters, wipers and brakes) are checked. 

 

We will then create a quotation for the service including any additional work that may be required. Rest assured. No additional work will be carried out without your approval.

 

It is then down to you the customer to decide what work is to be carried out. As all budgets are different, there is no additional cost if work is not carried out the same day, some customers may choose to take their vehicle and spread the cost over a series of weeks or months, our quotations have no expiry date*.

 

Once the vehicle has been completed, all fluid levels are checked and corrected, the service indicator is reset and and the vehicle is road tested again to ensure that we are 100% satisfied with your vehicle.

 

*Some additional items are strongly recommended to ensure that your vehicle is fit for road use i.e. brake pads.

Identify your Mercedes-Benz

To know what varient of Mercedes-Benz you own you will need to look in the bottom right hand corner of the windscreen. There you will come across a 17-Digit VIN Number. You will need to identify the 4th, 5th and 6th character. In the example below you will see that the numbers 204 are identifiable, making the car a 204 or C-Class.

Is my warranty really protected?

Yes, provided your vehicle is still within its warranty period, a stamp from Cowday in your Service book will not invalidate your Mercedes-Benz warranty agreement.

In 2002, European Parliament passed a law on Block Exemption deeming the practice of manufacturers forcing car owners to go to dealerships for servicing in order to uphold warranty as too restrictive. As a result, we have access to official service schedules from Mercedes Benz.

Digital Service History

Mercedes-Benz no longer supply a hard-copy service booklet to keep your service history, instead only regestered and approved members can update the new DSB (Digital Service Booklet).

Cowdray is a registered member of the Mercedes-Benz DSB Programme. We therefore have the facilities to update you service history directy to the official Mercedes-Benz portol.
