Went to Edmunds and searched MB E class 2014-2016 fuel type diesel found a hundred listings. I'd get one as a replacement if I totaled mine.

70K service

I was dealer serviced until 50K. 60k i did oil change, def and tire rotation. At 70k, oil change, fuel filter (every 20k), check brakes, tire rotation, cabin and air filter.
Trans fluid change is more like q100k. when the dealer did the 50k they changed the fuel filter, no due then.

70k

Fuel pump, air filters, oil: about $400. Work done at local shop. Still need tire rotation. Car is better than ever. Rides excellently, trouble free at 70k, 35 combined. Bring the 220d and I'd trade it in, otherwise no reason to switch anywhere in sight. Am planning an out of town job. Sure glad I'm going in my car. I looked at my engine finally, it looks extremely covered in tubes and complexity. If it ever really breaks down, I may have to go for some deleting to keep keeping on. Or maybe I'm underestimating the expertise available. I sure don't have that trusted mechanic backup yet like with my Jetta TDI. For now I'm confident I have another 70k trouble free, based on the first 70k. Extended warranty still on to 100k or 6yr. The breakdowns are coming, but not too soon I hope.

I ordered Curt model 11001 hitch for my 2015 E250 bluetec diesel. I had our car at a dealership because of a check engine light. While there mechanic overheard my discussion with a parts employee and later the mechanic told me that he could put a hitch on the car. I was back in Missouri last week and I am pleased to report that the gas version does in fact fit the diesel. It took the mechanic 5 hours to install and the MB dealership charged $209.00 for the install. Curt recommends the use of a stabilizing strap with the hitch. I have not loaded my bikes on it yet but it seems very substantial.
Has this been working well? How is your car?

Had my transmission service at 90k (now at 100k). Car has been excellent. I expect the next 100k to be as trouble free.
