All Mercedes-Benz models have service warning lights on the dashboard to alert the driver when their vehicle needs a service. The need for such services is identified by illuminated spanners. One spanner indicates a minor, or ‘A’, service, while two spanners signifies the need for a major, or ‘B’ service. Depending on the mileage and age of a vehicle, there are also a range of further checks, but these differ from case-to-case. Our personnel can advise motorists in Epsom, Esher, Cobham, Kingston, Leatherhead or anywhere in the Surrey area what work is due before commencing.
As Mercedes specialists, Star-Tec Engineering Ltd perform full ‘A’ or ‘B’ Mercedes servicing in accordance with the manufacturer’s warranty guidelines. By doing so, we do not affect your warranty. We only change parts when scheduled for replacement. Our customers in Epsom, Esher, Cobham, Kingston, Leatherhead and the wider Surrey area can rest assured that we only use GENUINE Mercedes-Benz parts unless stated otherwise.
Our fully equipped workshop is home to the very latest trade and industry technology and offers a wide range of diagnostic services delivered with the increasing demands of technology used in the Mercedes-Benz Range.
The Service ASSYST system has undergone changes over the years in line with our ever-improving technology, but the most recent editions include:
Service ASSYST 1997-2003
Many Mercedes-Benz Passenger cars come equipped with Service ASSYST. This is a variable service schedule alternating from ‘A’ to ‘B’ services. A service indicator will appear on your display approximately one month or 600 miles before a service is due. We usually undertake services between 9,000 and 18,500 miles, or between 12 to 24 months, depending on driving style.
Service ASSYST PLUS, 2003-2007
The majority of models produced between 2003 and 2007 were equipped with Service ASSYST PLUS. This is also a variable service schedule alternating from ‘A’ to ‘H’ services, with the letters indicating how much time and work is expected to be conducted. ‘A’ indicates a routine service while ‘H’ signifies a more in-depth service.
Service ASSYST Fixed Intervals, 2007-Onwards
Many models produced from 2007 have fixed service intervals. Services alternate from ‘A’ to ‘B’ and occur every 15,500 miles or after one year, whichever comes sooner. These fixed service intervals make it easier for drivers to plan their servicing around their schedule, reducing the likelihood of them missing an appointment.
