How Often Should You Replace Your Oil?

Mercedes-Benz technician servicing a vehicle

Routine Mercedes-Benz synthetic motor oil replacements are essential to your vehicle’s health. Keep your vehicle performing that way it should and replace your motor oil when needed. When is that? Service A* and Service B* appointments both include an oil replacement and oil filter replacement, and you trust that your Flexible System will let you know when it’s time for your next service appointment. Typically, you should contact our service center to schedule your Mercedes-Benz Service A or Service B. 

What Are the Oil Replacement Frequency Guidelines? 

Previously, there was a “3,000-mile,” saying, but that recommendation was from several years ago, and thanks to Mercedes-Benz vehicles being more efficient than ever before, things are different. Using synthetic motor oil in your vehicle means you can go longer in between synthetic motor oil replacement appointments, which saves you money in the long run. Below are handy oil replacement frequency tips to keep in mind:

  • All Mercedes-Benz vehicles that were manufactured after 2010 are required to use synthetic oil. So, if you’re driving a recently manufactured model, you can follow your regularly scheduled Service A and Service B appointments.
  • However, if you have an older Mercedes-Benz model, an oil replacement interval of 5,000 to 7,500 miles will likely be more appropriate***.

Top Mercedes-Benz Oil Replacement Questions

  • How often should I replace my Mercedes-Benz synthetic motor oil if I only drive my car occasionally? Oil breaks down when it’s not being used, so you’ll want to schedule Mercedes-Benz synthetic motor oil replacement at least once or twice a year.
  • How often should I replace Mercedes-Benz synthetic motor oil if I enjoy off-roading adventures, or do sport driving around Kettering ? Because you’re pushing the limits of your vehicle’s capabilities, causing significant wear and tear, this increases your Mercedes-Benz synthetic motor oil replacement frequency***.
  • Can I handle a Mercedes-Benz synthetic motor oil replacement at home? Since your motor oil replacement is part of your Service A or Service B, you should only replace the oil at home if you’re doing so more often than most drivers. You can get all of the supplies needed at our Centerville parts department.
