You can choose from Schedule A and Schedule B. Your needs for maintenance are even divided into service selections.

The Flexible Service System lets you know how to take care of your Mercedes and eliminates the guesswork for you. It’s even affordable.

Flexible Service System: Schedule A

Service Schedule A is based on where you drive, how you drive and other factors. Mercedes-Benz also takes into account the car’s specific features and services it accordingly. Generally, a Mercedes made after 2009 needs service after driving 10,000 miles on the road or after the first year. Then, it should be serviced every 20,000 miles or 2 years. With Service Schedule A:

  • Brakes are inspected for any issues, including components
  • Oil Filer and synthetic motor oil are changed
  • Tire pressure is checked and corrected
  • Fluid levels are checked and corrected
  • The counter for the next service visit is set

Flexible Service System: Schedule B

The service on Schedule B is the same as Schedule A.

  • Oil filter and synthetic motor oil are replaced
  • Brakes are inspected
  • Tire pressure is checked and corrected
  • Fluid levels are modified according to the manufacturer’s instructions
  • The service counter is reset for the next visit

The service system for Mercedes models with diesel is a bit different. Service intervals are different and additional services are performed. Your service advisor will provide you will all the details. Mercedes takes the time to keep its valued customers up to speed with specific information.

  • Fuel filter is replaced
  • The AdBlue fluid is replenished
  • All repairs are specific to the car’s model and year.
