I believe the mercedes lease is quite specific about maintenance...and if you don't have receipts showing that every item on their recommended maintenance has been done, you may be asked to pay at the end. Check on that before you decide to just do oil changes at walmart. Those oil changes could be very expensive. Remember on a lease, Mercedes (not you) owns the car....so they can be specific on where, etc you do maintenance.

My understanding is that the leasing company owns the car not Mercedes--I could be wrong, but that is my understanding. I am certain that Mercedes cannot force you to do the MAINT with them...

Mercedes can not require you to use their service....they can however require you to do all the items in every service and be able to show that you did them.
actually, most leasing companies require that, but only Mercedes tries to enforce it.
Mercedes Finance owns the cars, not Mercedes Motorcars.

I have this $3500 discount certificate for 2014 E350 based on the new affinity relationship between MB and United (premier status flier). Should I expect this to be treated as "real" money -- in addition to a discount in 10% range. Or is this a gimmick -- just representing the discount they would offer anyway.
What should I expect?
10% off plus 3500?
10% off total?
(Or, don't say it, less)

Which dealers were you working with in SoCal and which one did you go with? It appears you were able to bring the MSRP price down by +/- 15%. Nice work. I'm not too familiar with the one pay lease option and was planning on purchasing the vehicle. Thanks for posting your details.
Do members of this forum believe 10%-15% off MSRP is reasonable for the E250 as well?? At this point with the imminent release of the E250 and increased demand, I don't believe that kind of reduction is out there but perhaps by winter when inventory builds it might seem like a reasonable price point. Thoughts?
#2058 of 2218 2013 Mercedes E350 - Deep discounting ?
Sep 18, 2013 (10:28 pm)
With so many 2014's going for a great price; I am curious to know about the discounts on a 2013 E Class. I drove both the 2014 and 2013 and IMHO not much of a difference.
What are the discounts being offered on a 2013? Thanks again for all the input!

it kind of depends on if you are looking to buy( cash vs finance) or lease.
if lease, 2014 would be the way to go usually

#2062 of 2218 Trade in value or Auction Pricing for 11 e350 blu tec
Sep 21, 2013 (5:52 pm)
Has anyone recently traded in a 2011 E 350 Blue Tec, P 1 package? Pricing? Or does anyone have any info on auction pricing on the vehicle. Mercedes dealers in LA would not disclose auction pricing, while a local Porsche dealer sent me the complete list of Boxsters sold at auction to prove that his pricing was in line with the market.
