The 'A' service is pretty much just an oil/filter change and a number of checks, so not very expensive. Although yes Mercedes is in general expensive. But then a luxury vehicle, even if "entry level."My 2022 GLA is giving me some grief. I've had it for 1 year and it only has 7500 miles. The rear window washer will not release the washing fluid (tank is full).
Also, when I connect Google maps via the USB, Apple Play keeps dropping. I'll be driving and don't even notice that it's dropped out and I'm no longer getting directions.
The time on the radio keeps changing. I reset it and a day or so later, it's wrong.
This is my first Mercedes and I'm very disappointed that I'm having these issues so soon. I was going to bring it to the dealer for the "A" service but decided to hold off because of posts on here saying the price is astronomical. Any help?
You'll want to maintain your warranty so best to have Mercedes do it. Although you can also meet warranty with proper records keeping from an independent.
Delaying routine maintenance is never prudent.
Besides which you'll presumably be bringing it into dealership service for this in-warranty issues resolution, so 'one stop shopping.'
Note that some have found that they are not fully properly eliciting the rear washer control. Or it could be a line blockage as only one pump for both windshield and rear washer.
Sometimes the quality of the USB cable itself is the issue. Do you have a similar issue using wireless Bluetooth/WiFi to CarPlay?
