Mecedes service costs

I am about to purchase a 2013 U24TB and in talking with a friend whom has previously owned a RV with the Sprinter chassis he indicated that he sold his RV as in his words he will not pay Mercedes 1k to get the oil changed. He said you can't take it some where else as they need to be able to connect to the computer to do whatever and only Mercedes can do that.

Thank you in advance if you can shed some light on this potential concern I have.

I don't know if that is fully correct and sounds high to me, from what I have heard although the price differs between dealers. We have a 2019 Leisure Wonder that is built on a Ford Transit. I had the same service concerns on the Mercedes although many people like them.. and most of the time you only hear the bad stories. We just couldn't justify the upcharge for the Mercedes.
Good luck with your decision

When I had a Sprinter B I would change the oil myself.
There is a way to reset the computer after oil change, check it out on Sprinter Forum.com

I had a 2008 Sprinter B, sold by Dodge, Mercedes would not do warranty  work on it,  said it was A Dodge.
Three years later Dodge wasn't interested anymore, too slow sales.
And yes, non warranty work at MB was a very expensive.

Have a friend in GA with a 2017 Thor Sprinter.  He takes his to a MB dealer and told me (and showed invoice) that a simple oil change was @$250.  We own a MB car and the $1,000 is correct for a car, but they do more than just the oil change on the "yearly service."
