MBS Service, Bend, Oregon

The Bend, Oregon Mercedes dealer is now performing general service on Sprinter chassis class C's. However, Mercedes has not yet approved them to do warranty, or recall service. Bummer, as I just got a recall for my Takata airbag and now have to drive over to either Eugen, Wilsonville, or Portland, Or. But, if you live in Central Oregon, and need general service performed, this is certainly closer than the 3+ hour trip over the pass.

You should call Mercedes CS and ask them if you can use that center, my bet is they will approve it. Nothing to lose but a phone call and a few minutes time.

Interestingly enough, I emailed Mercedes customer service asking them this question. The reply back was that if if Mercedes, Bend, had the parts, they should be able to perform the work. Since you can rarely get the service manager on the phone, I emailed him my question, and response back from Mercedes customer service. 2 days now and I have yet to hear back from him. In the meantime, I called MB in Eugene, about 3 hours west of me, and was talking with them about the recall. Turns out they are having a demo day at a dealer in Bend in two weeks and will be replacing airbags - so got on the schedule for 2 PM, 25 miles from where I live. So far, not impressed with the Bend Mercedes people, but what dealings I have had with the Eugene people have been very good. Guess that will be where I go for future service needs. Not holding my breath to hear back from the Bend service manager.

I got mine done in Salem yesterday. It took them longer to do the paper work than it did to do the work. I was in and out of there in less than 25 minutes.

I have had terrible luck with Bend Mercedes with my SLK so when I got recall I contacted Wilsonville and the openly wanted me to have them replace my airbags on my 2016 24R. And they are giving me a loaner. My son had bout a Sprinter van there recently and they were exceptional. Worth the drive for me.

Still have not had any call back, or reply from Mercedes, of Bend regarding my email that included MB customer service saying they could do the work. Guess I am not disappointed in lack of response, as it seems they do not have a great reputation on after sale service, it appears. Too bad, as I think they are missing a real opportunity for work based on the number of MBS Sprinter RV's being sold here in the central Oregon area.

Got a call from the MB service manager in Bend, Yesterday. After he read my email from MB customer service, he said, no, they cannot service any MBS Sprinter, period. Back to going over the pass for service. Too bad.

Bend Mercedes

I'm surprised and pleased to hear they may eventually be certified for Sprinter work. I've been taking my M Class there for years and whining about driving to Eugene for my Sprinter since 2010 (even tho I actually enjoy the solo trip)

I can't believe that won't do it. It's about a 20 minute job and they did mine in the parking lot.

The Mercedes place in Palm Springs won't work on the sprinters. They said they don't have a lift but if it can be done
In a parking lot you don't need a lift. We take ours to Riverside they have awesome sprinter service.
