    - Inspect and record tread depth, and correct tire pressure
    - Rotate tires (excludes AMG, Sports Models, SLK, and vehicles with staggered wheels)
    - Engine oil change and oil filter replacement
    -Includes Mobil 1 synthetic oil
    - Lubrication service
    - Includes hood hinges, lock cylinders, striker
    plates, sun roof tracks and top off all fluids
    - Cooling system inspection
    - Includes antifreeze protection level, hoses and
    - Brake inspection
    - Includes check of pad thickness and condition of
    discs, fluids and lines
    - Inspect heating and ventilation dust filter, replace if needed. (Replacement additional. Dust filter prices vary by model)
    - Function check
    - Includes warning lamps, headlights, exterior
    lights, seat belts, windshield wiper and washer
    - Inspect and lubricate throttle linkage
    - Check and clean air filter
    - Reset flexible service system counter

    Anything that is not acceptable under Check or Inspect of course costs more to actually repair these items.

    So, basically this is a $300 oil change, plus the checking of everything that you should normally do when changing your oil to make sure that your car is in tip top condition, plus a tire rotation and resetting the FSS light.

    So if you are pretty handy, have some basic tools, and a repair manual you can easily do this job yourself and save.
