Mercedes-Maintenance uses a Flexible Service System, (FSS) (AKA the Active Service System [ASSYST]) permits a flexible service schedule which is directly based on your customer's driving style. The next service due is displayed in the multifunction display within the instrument cluster. This display indicates the days or distances remaining to the next suggested factory service. Once the suggested service due has been exceeded, the wrench symbol, plus the message "EXCEEDED BY" will appear, when the ignition key is in position 2.

A detailed list of the applicable maintenance jobs is contained in the client's service booklet or the service sheet. Each model has a separate service sheet, which exactly defines the service required for that mileage and/or time limit. This report is available for the client at the completion of vehicle servicing.

Service is due when you are prompted by indicators on the control panel of your vehicle. When a “single wrench” illuminates on your control panel this means it is time for an A-Service with an optional tire rotation**. After your specialist performs the scheduled A-Service, we recommend a B-Service when you have driven 6,000 to 8,000* more miles. You are now on an alternating repeat maintenance cycle, starting with another A-service; a B-Service and so on. We at Quality Import Service believe this is the best method of keeping your vehicle in top running condition and preventing unexpected repairs.
