Regardless if your Mercedes-Benz is under warranty or not, adhering to the factory’s scheduled maintenance is key to ensuring it’s reliable going forward.

At Coho Auto of Manassas, VA, we can service your Mercedes Benz and perform all scheduled maintenance.

As of model year 2009, Mercedes-Benz vehicles follow a maintenance schedule of 10,000-mile or 12-month intervals, whichever occurs first (for all other model years, call us for specific maintenance schedule information). Mercedes Benz scheduled services are essentially grouped into two categories: Schedule A and Schedule B. The Schedule A service is every 10,000 miles or 1 year, and then it is typically every 20,000 miles or 2 years thereafter. The Schedule B service is every 20,000 miles or 1 year after the previous service, and then it is typically every 20,000 miles or 2 years thereafter. In both cases, however, the vehicle’s Flexible Service System determines the exact time and mileage.

While all late model MB vehicles will let you know when service is due – when a single wrench icon is displayed on your control panel – it is still a good idea to familiarize yourself with the maintenance that will be performed on your vehicle.

  • Schedule A: This includes a synthetic oil/filter change and a multi-point safety check of the vehicle that includes crucial items including: brakes, indicator lights, rubber belts and hoses, fluid level checks, steering linkage, and suspension components. Additionally, our technicians will inspect for fluid leaks, check the wipers, tire pressure, horn, and the dashboard warning lights. The maintenance counter will also be reset.
  • Schedule B: In addition to everything covered in a Schedule A service, our technicians will replace the cabin air filter and brake fluid. At this time, we will also inspect your automobile’s heating and cooling system, and the fuel lines and connectors for any damage or wear.
