Just thought it would be a good idea to inform my readers. Hence, just in case they own one of these Mercedes cars. However, I am skeptical about these recalls. Why you may ask? Well, in the past I have had letters recalling three of the cars that I have owned. Not all at once? As a result, I have taken the cars into the main dealers. For the faults to be rectified.

Consequently, my last car was one that my daughter uses. Thus, the recall was something to do with the airbag checking. She was driving a Vauxhall Corsa. My daughter dropped the car off at the Vauxhall garage in Halifax West Yorkshire.

According to the garage, the brakes and two of the tyres required replacing. As a garage owner I was mortified. Also very disappointed, that the main dealers were “trying it on”. Consequently, I took the Corsa into my garage and had her car examined. Indeed, the car was fine? The tyres were getting down.But were far off requiring replacement. When I rang the Garage, they said that there must have been a mistake and I never heard an more of it. However, I did hear from some of my customers about similar stories.

Ever since then I have been skeptical about these recalls. In fact, I also believe that the customers and cars that are presented. Are then kept on record. Accordingly, the information could be then used to contact the customer. Once again I have proof of this. My daughter started getting reminders about winter checks and servicing. When my daughter first bought the car she lived in Chester. Where Brooke attended university. The sales letters came to our home address. So the garage would not have known? Except for the recall?

This is only my personal experience and I do not for one MInute think that all main dealer garages are to to these tricks? cough cough.
