How often does your Mercedes need servicing?

Post Date: 11th August 2017


If you own a Mercedes Benz, chances are you see your car as more of a way to get from one place to another. A Mercedes Benz is an investment, the creme de la creme of vehicles, that needs proper care in order for you to reap the benefits of owning one.

With that in mind, how often does your Mercedes need servicing? In this blog, we’ll explore the facts, and find out the answer to this popular query.

Check the owner’s manual

As a general guideline, if your Mercedes is newer than 2010 it should be serviced about once a year. However, looking at the owner’s manual will give you an insight into the mileage service requirements for your individual vehicle.

If you’ve just purchased your Mercedes, book it in for a maintenance appointment. This appointment should include a fluid levels check and correction, multi point inspection, oil change and filter replacement, and wiper blade checks. After this first appointment, you’ll need to schedule a follow up appointment for your vehicle once every 10,000 miles or so, or every 12 months, whichever comes first.

A longer time between services

As a guide, here’s how long some of your Mercedes parts will need before being serviced.

Area Period of time between servicing
Oil change Every 10,000 miles or 12 months
Transmission fluid Every 50,000 to 100,000 miles
Spark plugs Every 90,000 miles
Brake fluid Every 20,000 miles
