Top marks to my local dealer....

.. We received an invitation to take our car into the dealership for a complimentary 'winter check'..

Missus took the car in on Monday, while she had a free coffee and a read of the papers, they checked it over, full valet inside and out all free of charge and no sales pressure to boot!

Thanks and seasons greetings to the folks at Mercedes Benz Chester..

I'm sure they were hoping you'd turn up - and had a nice, clean R172 just waiting to show ya! :-)

They did that for us back in the summer. We said that even though it was a nice car, we would be very unlikely to buy another car at the moment (got the Golf earlier this year).

Even so, we were anticipating a little pressure. The sales guy that we deal with was in the showroom and as he walked past he said "Hi Helen, etc...." but didn't talk sales at all.

As you say a new SLK 200 6M Sport edition is on the edge of the radar, but not just yet. I'm impressed that the sales guy recognises that we're not ready to change our R171 yet and leaves us be.

I also got an invitation for a winter-health check last week. They also gave me an Ice scraper and de-icing spray and windscreen wash

all free of charge

Very impressive


Thumbs up for MB Ashford

Yep,

Got one to, they even picked up my car from work and dropped it back!

So no temptation of seeing a R172!

We are also fortunate to have a great MB dealer nearby. All the staff at DPatrick in Evansville Indiana are polite and helpful.....never any sales pressure and I actually enjoy visiting there.
