FREE and M-B smart Center can't be used in the same sentence. :shrug:.....spent 3 hours and $539 at smartcenter Charleston....today.... for updates to software that used to be free.
my front springs went out last august, $750, my tranny needed a reflash (hard to get to reverse) add $150. reflash/updates should be FREE, it's a manufacturing ERROR and should be a FREE FIX.FREE and M-B smart Center can't be used in the same sentence. :shrug:
A couple EARLY 2008-09 tranny related updates were gratis but your "3 hours and $539" experience would suggest more than just software updates?
My experience is that even though a mothership VIN # search should list "current" software loaded, the $tar Diagnostic$ computer is usually utilized and they won't plug and play for free . . .
