Recommended Maintenance by Mileage / Year

Have you ever wondered what maintenance you should perform to your Mercedes Benz at a specific mileage?

Follow these recommended service intervals and avoid things like this:

Damaged Mercedes Rotor
Neglected Mercedes-Benz  Rotor & Brakes

 

This is a rotor on a ML that I worked on. This Mercedes Benz was driven for a long time without any care. Not only did the previous owner put their lives to risk but also that of other people on the road.  Yes, this car was driven in United States.

 

 

 

Here is the list of the recommended services / checks as suggested by the Mercedes Benz.

 

 

Service at 10,000 miles /16,000 km or 1 year

Service at 20,000 miles / 32,000 km or 2 year

Service at 30,000 miles /48,000 km or 3 year

Service at 40,000 miles / 64,000 km or 4 year

Service at 50,000 miles /80,000 km or 5 year

Service at 60,000 miles / 96,000 km or 6 year

Service at 70,000 miles / 112,000 km or 7 year

Service at 80,000 miles / 128,000 km or 8 year

Service at 90,000 miles / 144,000 km or 9 year

Service at 100,000 miles /160,000 km or 10 year

Service at 110,000 miles / 175,000 km or 11 year

Service at 120,000 miles / 190,000 km or 12 year

Service at 130,000 miles /210,000 km or 13 year
