Mercedes-Benz Australia offers its customers a capped price servicing plan which covers all models - from the entry-level A-Class all the way up to those thumping Mercedes-AMG models.

The company’s three-year/100,000km warranty cover is matched by three years of capped price servicing for all models. The service intervals will vary depending on the car or SUV you've bought, but there’s no need to go in twice a year unless you’re covering a lot of kilometres - every Benz needs servicing every 12 months. But the brand's maintenance costs are higher than most competitors, right across the board. 

Like some other brands, Mercedes also gives owners the chance to pre-purchase their servicing, which means you can bundle the ownership costs into your finance deal or lease - helping ease the burden when it comes time to pay for maintenance.

There are two levels of Service Plan you can pre-purchase; Silver, which covers the basics such as fluids and filters, or Platinum, which also includes replacement of brake pads and discs, as well as windscreen wiper blade replacement. Contract terms range between two and five years, and from 30,000km to 125,000km, depending on the intervals.

The plans are slightly different for Mercedes-Benz Vans models - including models like the X-Class and Vito / Valente / V-Class. The levels there are called BestBasic, SelectPlus and Complete. And as with the passenger car range, you don’t need to pre-purchase the maintenance if you don’t want to. 

If you do a lot of kilometres you will get a better value ownership experience than most people with Mercedes. The intervals are long across the model range, but they are also expensive. So if you the Aussie average distance (15,000km per year) or less, servicing could sting. 6/10

See the table below for the average cost per service for each of the models in the Mercedes-Benz and Mercedes-AMG ranges, plus the maintenance schedule applicable to each of the different variants listed.
