I guess you didn’t read my attached letter LOL.Ok, got my letter today. I misunderstood. I thought it was a OAT, outside air temp, stand-alone sensor. So I assume it sends to the ecu, probably works in conjunction with MAF, which is not a maf on these. Too many recalls on this thing...this is three so far. That's BS....and I'm 10 miles from S.Charlotte mercedes.
You mean you'd go past 30k miles on Service B? I have assumed that the "early" trans flush is a retro move to the days when we flushed engine oil and trans fluid in a thousand or 1,500 miles to get rid of manufacturing crud. I'd rather get it done early than not at all.I wouldn't change trans fluid with low miles. I think 45,000 is too soon. My fluid at 45k looked as clean as the new fluid. I changed my bmw fluid around 175,000 miles the first time. It looked decent. Keep in mind these transmissions are much different than the old ones...one think that helps us the power is retarded for a split second when it shifts. That keeps wear way down...and longevity way up.
Sorry to revive a dead thread -- but I just read the letter and they extended the warranty on the ECM software. That's like saying in 5 years they won't send you updates. Thanks for nuthin' They pay for the sensor (only) if you had it replaced prior at your own expense.I got that letter too.....and I looked up the outside temp sensor part. I am pretty sure it was less than $50. woohoo.
