Notice he said "should I have a new one put in?"

I'm assuming you meant by the dealer. My battery recently failed while the car was in for service. I couldn't get to the dealer quickly, and didn't want to interrupt the work being done on the car, so I allowed the dealer to install a new battery.

Cost was $134 for the battery plus $28 for installation. Now I'm all for using original Mercedes-Benz parts, but this is just outrageous. If you simply enjoy handing your money over to the dealer, then by all means have them put one in.
