Mercedes-Benz Recommended Service
You've made a great investment in a great automobile, and when it comes to keeping that investment in a like-new condition, it's important to follow the recommended service levels of Mercedes-Benz.
Mercedes-Benz uses a Flex Schedule for maintenance, prompted by indicators on the control panel of your vehicle. Your first service should occur between 5,000 and 6,000 miles. This is when we perform an Inspection and Tire Rotation Service.
Following that interval, your next service will occur when a single wrench icon illuminates on your control panel. The single wrench indicates it is time for an A-Service.
When two wrenches appear on your Mercedes-Benz control panel, it is time for a Service B. After you've provided a Service B for your Mercedes-Benz automobile, it is time to repeat the cycle. That is, come in for an Inspection and Tire Rotation about 5,000 to 6,000 miles after the Service B; we'll then see you when it's time for the A-Service; followed by another Inspection and Tire Rotation; then another Service B, and so on.
Following the Mercedes-Benz recommended service schedule for your automobile is the best method for keeping your Mercedes-Benz in top running condition and preventing unexpected repairs. All three services are detailed below:
Inspection and Tire Rotation Service
- Inspect battery and check electrolyte level
- Inspect windshield wiper inserts and service windshield washer system (replacement of wiper inserts additional)
- Inspect belts, hoses and undercarriage
- Inspect lights
- Inspect brakes
- Inspect and top off fluid levels
- Rotate tires and adjust tire pressure (excludes AMG, Sports Models, SLK and vehicles with staggered wheels)
Here is what we do:
- Synthetic motor oil Replacement
- Oil filter replacement
- Cabin dust/combination filter replacement
- All fluid level checks and corrections are dependent on factory recommended service intervals for your vehicle's year and model
- Tire inflation check and correction
- Brake component inspection
- Reset maintenance counter
- Please refer to your maintenance booklet for the factory recommended service intervals for your vehicle's year and model.
Here is why we do it:
During the Service B, Certified Mercedes-Benz Technicians closely examine your automobile's engine components, using specialized equipment to be sure that all the mechanical, electronic, and computerized devices are functioning properly.
At this time, we also need to address your automobile's heating and cooling system. Over time, your engine coolant becomes contaminated, losing its ability to protect your engine from freezing in cold weather conditions and overheating in hot conditions. Very expensive repairs could result from avoiding this required maintenance.
Next, we inspect your fuel lines and connectors for any damage or wear, and we check your fuel tank vapor vent system, hoses and fuel tank supports. As we said above on the A-Service, it's important that you trust only a Mercedes-Benz Factory Trained and Certified Technician to perform these functions.
