When Should I Have a Mercedes Car Service?

No one is legally required to have their car serviced. However, doing so regularly will save you money on repairs and maintenance costs in the future. Your Mercedes is a valuable investment, so you will want to know that it is running at its best for as long as possible. We recommend that you have your car serviced at least once a year, or every 10,000 miles if you are a frequent driver. By doing this you can relax with a safe and reliable drive for much longer.

Things to Consider for Servicing

  • While we recommend having a service at least once a year, this is just a guideline. If you detect any faults with your vehicle have it seen to immediately so it does not worsen before the service date rolls around.
  • Seek out service garages that have a well-earned reputation, especially when it comes to performing Mercedes car services.
  • Make sure you book your service well in advance and not at the last minute. If you try to book it last minute you may find the service garage is too busy. Plus booking in advance gives you time to plan alternative ways to get home, plus other things to do in the meantime.
  • Choose off peak times for a service if possible. Although this may not always be possible, it will give you a better chance of a booking and you may be in and out quicker.
  • If possible, book your vehicle service on the same day as your MOT. Once your MOT is complete you will be able to immediately arrange for any problems found to be fixed during the service.
