Prepaid Maintenance

Does anyone know if prepaid maintenance (since the price is different for each model...) covers the oil change at 1,875 miles?

It is covered.

Edit: Just to be clear, its a differential oil change...not an engine oil change.

Discount Prepaid Maintenance?

Does anybody know a dealer who discounts the cost of a Mercedes prepaid maintenance plan?

Thanks.

From earlier threads it seems many will discount. It's been a while now so I don't recall the particulars but my dealer (Escondido Mercedes) was able to discount the prepaid maintenance by a fair bit. Went with this dealer specifically because Herman Haemmer worked there - he was our go to person for European Delivery. Herman has now moved to El Cajon Mercedes following the change of ownership at Escondido. Haven't had any dealings with the Escondido dealership since so can't say how willing they are to deal now.

When I added up the cost of the services (my service advisor provided the costs to me in person), it was less than the prepaid!! Plus, you do not get to residualize the prepaid on AMG leases. Unless you get at least 25% off, it is a BAD move. Just pay when you go.

Could you post the individual service cost breakdown? It would be great to reference for anyone considering the PPS.
