Mercedes, BMW Sever Russian Dealers From Diagnostic Software

• Zero Hedge

"Dealers have been disconnected from the manufacturer's online software systems," distributor Mercedes-Benz Russia told Izvestia. "Due to the withdrawal of Mercedes-Benz AG from the Russian market, the joint-stock company Mercedes-Benz Russia does not have any additional opportunities to check and carry out other service measures set for Mercedes-Benz cars by the manufacturer." 

"In some cases, the lack of access to online systems will increase repair times," the company said, as mechanics will have to rely on their "accumulated experience and knowledge." In addition to thwarting maintenance and repairs, the software cut-off will also leave Russian drivers unable to update programming on their vehicles.
