How Often Should You Change Your Oil

Blue Mercedes-Benz C-Class

A Mercedes-Benz vehicle is a precision machine, and like every automobile, regular oil replacement is required to keep your model functioning as it should. How often should you change your oil if you drive a Mercedes-Benz? Service A* and Service B* appointments both include an oil replacement and an oil filter replacement**, and you can count on your Flexible Service System to tell you when it’s time to schedule service.  In general, you’ll schedule Mercedes-Benz Service A or Service B once every 10,000 miles.



Oil Change Frequency Guidelines

If you’ve ever heard of the “3,000-mile oil change,” you might be wondering why the company’s recommended oil change frequency is so high! The 3,000-mile recommendation may have been applicable years ago, but today’s vehicles have been manufactured to run cleaner and more efficiently than ever before. Using synthetic oil in your vehicle allows for longer and longer gaps between oil replacement appointments, and leaves you with more money in your pocket.  So, how often should you change the oil in the Mercedes-Benz you actually drive? Here’s what you should keep in mind:

  • All Mercedes-Benz vehicles manufactured after 2010 require their drivers to use synthetic oil. So, if you drive a recently-manufactured model, you can stick to your regularly scheduled Service A and Service B appointments with confidence.
  • However, if you drive an older Mercedes-Benz vehicle, an oil change interval of 5,000 to 7,500 miles is likely more appropriate***.

Mercedes-Benz Oil Replacement: Frequently Asked Questions

  • How often should I change my oil if I only drive my Mercedes-Benz occasionally? 
    • Since oil breaks down when it isn’t being used, you’ll want to schedule Mercedes-Benz oil replacement at least once or twice a year.
  • How often should I change my oil if I like to take my vehicle off-road, or engage in sport driving near Mayfield or Cleveland? 
    • Since pushing the limits of your vehicle’s capabilities can generate significant wear and tear, it’s appropriate to increase your oil change frequency***.
  • Can I perform Mercedes-Benz oil replacement at home? 
    • Since you’ll usually have your oil changed as part of Service A or Service B, you’ll only need to change your oil at home if you’re doing so more often than most drivers. Pick up everything you need at our Mercedes-Benz parts department.
