Blue MB E-Class

You dreamed about owning a Mercedes-Benz, and now you’re the proud owner of one, but do you know your car maintenance schedule? Purchasing a new or used Mercedes-Benz is only the beginning. To keep it running perfectly when you’re cruising %%di_city% roads, you need regular maintenance. If you’re wondering, “What is my Mercedes-Benz maintenance schedule?” Mercedes-Benz of San Diego is here to help. Find out below.

Mercedes-Benz Maintenance Schedule Specifics

In general, your Mercedes-Benz car maintenance schedule will require you to schedule service once every 10,000 miles or so, or about once per year. For Mercedes-Benz vehicles made during or after 2009, the majority of the services needed will be grouped under Mercedes-Benz Service A* or Mercedes-Benz Service B*. If additional services are required**, you might also see the letter C, D, E, or F. Review your owner’s manual to learn about the ASSYST Plus tracking system, and if you still have questions, call the service department at Mercedes-Benz of San Diego, near San Diego.

Mercedes-Benz Service A & Mercedes-Benz Service B

Your first Mercedes-Benz Service A* appointment will arrive after the 10,000-mile marker, or roughly after one year on Del Mar roads. This appointment includes:

  • Mercedes-Benz Synthetic Motor Oil Replacement***
  • Oil Filter Replacement***
  • All fluid level checks and corrections, according to recommended service intervals for your vehicle’s make and model
  • Tire inflation check and correction
  • Brake component inspection
  • Reset maintenance counter

When you hit about 20,000 miles, or pass two years of ownership, your Mercedes-Benz car maintenance schedule includes your first Mercedes-Benz Service B* appointment. It comprises many of the things from your Service A visit, along with other important items. It includes:

  • Mercedes-Benz Synthetic Motor Oil Replacement***
  • Oil Filter Replacement***
  • All fluid level checks and corrections, according to recommended service intervals for your vehicle’s make and model
  • Tire inflation check and correction
  • Brake component inspection
  • Cabin dust/combination filter replacement
  • Brake fluid exchange
  • Reset maintenance counter

Are you wondering, “What is my car maintenance schedule after 20,000 miles?” Basically, you can expect to alternate between Service A and Service B after each 10,000-mile benchmark, meaning you’ll schedule Service A at 30,000 miles, Service B after 40,000 miles, and so on. And, you’ll see additional letters when extra repairs or replacements are due.

Mercedes-Benz ASSYST PLUS Makes It Easy

The guidelines above will keep your Mercedes-Benz running like the high-performance machine that it is, but there’s more to be aware of. Every new Mercedes-Benz vehicle made during or after 2006 also includes the ASSYST PLUS service tracker, which conveniently notifies you via automatic alerts when it’s time to schedule service.

Even if you’re keeping up with scheduled maintenance, you’ll want to check your oil level, tire pressure, and tread depth regularly. You may also notice corrosion on your car battery from time to time, so it’s good to know how to clean it up. Although it is possible to reset a check engine light manually, it’s a good idea to make a service appointment whenever you see a strange light on your dashboard.
