MB got thousands servicing our MB GLK SUV before we traded it for our Tesla, which has cost $0 in maintenance.

My Smart Electric Drive has never seen the dealer since I bought it 2.5 years ago, not a penny spent on maintenance.

EV's are not a profit center for service!

When I bought my 453 the salesperson said they made about $100 on my sale. I got a zero interest loan from MB so MB's loan department didn't make any money on the sale. I did buy an extended warranty through MB so if the car has absolutely no problems they may make money that way, this E/W is supposed to be good for the length of time I own the car. That could be a long time, I typically keep cars 10 or more years.
