Assuming that you can prove the mileage when you brought it in - should be recorded on the service ticket. There is no reason for them to drive much more than around the block to check a software update. If you can prove the mileage difference - then call MBUSA. They really get concerned when a dealer mis-treats a customer or his vehicle.

I would have called the Mercedes corporation and put in a complaint. I heard that a dealership on Long Island the owner uses the cars to take vacation
