Service Intervals

Service your Mercedes-Benz at Stuttgart Autos, accessing state-of-the-art facilities, tools and diagnostic equipment. Factory-trained technicians will assist in maintaining your vehicle’s optimal condition, giving you confidence your vehicle is in the right hands.


Mercedes-Benz vehicles have some of the longest service intervals in the Australian luxury car market. This means more driving for less frequent visits to the workshop compared to other luxury marques. Service intervals depend on vehicle type. You can find out how often your vehicle is due for service by visiting the Service Intervals page.


Genuine Parts and Genuine Oil are only available at authorised Mercedes-Benz Service Centres such as Stuttgart Autos. Always request Genuine Parts to ensure your vehicle is maintained correctly.

Mercedes-Benz service intervals have been set to ensure you get the best performance from your vehicle over its life.
