Recommended Posts

My car has P0171 code, dealership replaced MAF sensor to fix my car, but this part is an used one. should I accept this result? because the lady from head office told me only manfactory wanrenty use new parts, other time depend on dealer' wish. to my knowledge, please pay attention to check if they use used parts to fix your cars.

Not quite the same thing, but not entirely :offtopic:

In the papers, here. yesterday was a case where the main Merc dealer sold a top of the range model (YES in this economic climate :eek: ) . When the buyer drove it out of the Showroom, he noticed that 2nd hand alloys & tyres had been put on :ffs: . Naturally he went back to the Salesman p.d.q.& got a frosty reception & no joy.

He took it to a tyre specialist , who reckoned that the tyres had done 10k miles approx.with under 50 miles on the clock.

It went to court & was settled out of Court, with a very sincere apology from the M.D. for the actions of an EX employee

Again mildy off topic... someone recently took a top end merc into the local dealership for a service... and went over it when it have come out... the car had not actually been serviced, just had the service interval reset and the book stamped!
