How do I know what service my Mercedes needs?
Your Mercedes has a predefined service schedule set out by the manufacturer which is monitored by the Mercedes ASSYST system on your vehicle.
Calculations are made by the vehicle and a service indicator message will be displayed in the instrument cluster when service is required.
The ASSYST system on your vehicle will report the type of service that you require (Service A, Service B etc).
If you’re unsure of the service history of your Mercedes then our team at Saffron Autos will be pleased to recommend the best course of action to keep your vehicle in tip-top condition.
Once your Mercedes service is completed we’ll update your service record maintaining your warranty and the future resale value of the car.

What happens during a Mercedes service?
Natural wear and tear occurs both with time and miles driven. We ensure the vehicle is thoroughly checked and the correct components replaced maintaining optimum performance and safety.
The manufacturer designs a specific service schedule for the lifetime of your vehicle. Our award-winning technicians ensure this is adhered to.
We’ll always carry out the right service for your Mercedes. Below is an example of the areas covered.
