I haven't changed the oil in my CLA yet. When I do it will be done by the dealer because I pre-purchased all scheduled maintenance for 5 years so what ever they use I assume will be what MB recommends.
To be honest with you I don't remember but that price is negotiable and I think I got them to cut 15% off the regular price because I agreed to buy other services.Tony how much did the 5 year package go for. I'd like to get a 3year plan.
Wow. You have a lot of posts for someone who doesn't even own a CLA yet.I don't have a CLA as yet but when I get one, i think i will go with motul oil, they are one of the best brands out there.
I think I'm following the manufacturer's recommended intervals.I was thinkin about changing the oil at 1000 miles too. But dealer said they don't recommend that.. What do you guys think?
The same German engineers whose recommendation you don't care for are the same engineers who designed the engine and car you care enough buy. I can understand your concerns about oil changes on a new car if it was years ago but design and manufacturing technologies have progressed to a point where the manufacturers themselves are comfortable with 10,000 mile intervals. Oh BTW, the CLA (as well as other MB models) come with synthetic motor oil and recommends synthetic oil changes.I just couldn't think about leaving the oil unchanged for 10,000 miles on a new car, I don't care what the Germans recommend. And who know what kind of oil they put in there, I feel better and the engine idles smoother with the Synthetic oil IMO.
And I bet that's what is in the crankcase of the engine from the factory.theres a sticker it says Mobil 1 is recommended in the hood.
