  1. You can ask the technician to check the oil quality to advise if flush is needed or not, more than likely they will say for more sales. Also you can put light inside inside the engine from oil cap and see if the engine is having dark brown marks or shiny clean. in brownish mark means it need cleaning
  2. Engine flush not required on every oil change, but good after 20000 km interval at least
  3. After a lot of research and patience, I bought my first Mercedes ever about two years back - Mercedes Benz GL 500, recently crossed 200k kms last month. I have driven my friend ML500 for a week before buying this and I was completely convinced that I needed such amazing, spacious, and powerful daily driver. Thinking for 5.5 engine it consumes way less than any V6 in the market as Mercedes have done some crazy fuel science and I get around 12-14 L/100 gas mileage with a combine in 30% city + 70% highway. With 382 hp there is no shortage of power and as per internet, it can sprint 0-100 in 7.5 seconds for such huge 4x4. This car has some amazing blend of luxury and ruggedness which make me so happy to own it and I hope I can keep her forever if she continues to behave well in long run. I really love her three-row spacious seating that can accommodate 7 pax without any fuss and noise at the far end. The interior's quite a bit more overtly luxurious, with wood trim and glints of metallic trim; its controls are laid out well, and there are fewer of the tiny, inscrutably labeled switches. GL 500 shifts power through a seven-speed automatic to all four wheels, with an electronic all-wheel-drive system that limits wheelspin through anti-lock braking, a system pioneered on the M-Class, which sometimes I hate too much %^%&^&*. For safety, it has standard curtain airbags, stability control, all-wheel drive, a rearview camera, Bluetooth, Adaptive cruise control and blind-spot monitors etc. For entertainment it has standard power front seats; a power-fold feature for the third-row seat; a glass sunroof over the rear two rows of seats; a COMAND controller for climate, audio and navigation systems; Bluetooth; and an AM/FM/six-DVD changer, navigation system, 610-watt Harman Kardon Logic 7 audio system with surround sound; and a rear-seat DVD entertainment system with twin 8-inch screens and wireless headsets. Things that needed repair or replacement from time to time Air suspension Oil cooler seal leaking ball joints, boots, bushes, moountings etc. Minor electrical issue with music system - no volume sometime Coolant leak due to some burst Battery, tires, wipers etc - regular consumable
  4. Going early will definitely make sense if all of you can manage leaves, as it will be worth enjoying the khareef monsoon season and beat the traffic. Also 4 days stay is better than 3 to relax and enjoy than rushing things up and down on your checklist.

    Is cruise control bad for fuel mileage?

    Cruise is good for empty and straight road and help save fuel by constant accelaration to deliver constant sped. when road goes up and down or sideways then cruise is bad as it will keep on pushing gas higher to maintain that deseired fix speed in that case better to hold constant acceleration by foot and let speed go up and down to get best fuel mileag

    Whats on your keychain?

    Seriously you like Kia and it's keychain or you are just making fun here? Epic sarcasm
  12. Have you guys also noted that there is a huge varaince in showing speed through mobile gps or dash mount gps units vs the car speedometer. I want to know why there is a varaince and how to fix either of them or calibrate them to show same figure.

    Good job barry in challenging them technically. I am desperately waiting to hear his reply. Btw, I was about to go to them recently but with quick google search with cars clinic review or cars clinic dubai review i stumbled on gaurav fact stating thread and changed my decision. I hope that they should appear in search result with "Salim Ali Bin Haider Garage" or "Salim Ali Bin Haider Garage review" which they are not at the moment.
