First service

6 posts in this topic

Took my 2017 Smart ED in for its first service.  They did the service, washed the car and gave me a bottle of "Mercedes" water all for $125.  I'm a retired mechanic so I know the local shop rates, and I know there is sweet diddly to do on an electric vehicle, but that is cheap.  Didn't even bill me an hour.

It looks as if Evilutuon thinks Smarts servicing prices on the ED are not at all funny.  I'm looking forward to his update, particularly as a 453EQ will likely be my next steed.

My first service for 2017 Smart Car at Mercedes in Vancouver (near boundary road) was about $225.   On the service receipt they document having done oil and filter - even though the car doesn't have this.  they just didn't have another code for servicing smart electric cars.

I was told the next service requires a battery coolant change.  Raised my eyebrows a bit as most coolants are good for much longer.
