Sneaky Tricks Pulled With Mercedes-Benz Check Engine Lights.
Do you like the idea of car manufacturers for installing the check engine light on your car? Do you find it helpful?
There are so many high-tech in car electronics these days, but do you consider the check engine light as one of them if it couldn’t even tell you the exact reason why its light turns on? There are many causes why the check engine light turns on. It may be because you need an oil change, the gas cap is not tight enough, the sensor has gone bad or maybe some serious problems with your car. Well, It's not like that worthless engine light will tell you.
Meanwhile, check this statement from Anthony Johnson, a Mercedes Benz owner
“Hi, my name is Anthony Johnson. I am sending George at G&N Motors this video because I don't like what Mercedes is doing. Don't get me wrong, I love my Benz. Mercedes makes outstanding cars, but it's their tactics I have an issue with.
A simple engine light can end up costing you thousands of dollars because of the games they play to try and force us to go to the dealer."
What they are doing is classifying parts as being "Theft Relevant". Most independent shops can't get these parts so we are forced to go to the dealer who charges and arm and leg since they have the market pretty much cornered.“
