    It's a C250 Diesel 2013.
    Does anyone have a link to the service interval booklet please?

    After I entered the plate number I always get "Registration date must be in the past and before 01/01/1994!"

    Basically I just want to find out for mileage, what is the service interval for my car? 12k or 15.5k?

    Thanks

    You're likely a w204 so you click on that, then your engine, 204003 probably, then enter mileage and registration date

    Ah it's because I thought it was registration plate rather than date. Lol

    It only says what I need to do for certain parts. Don't say when I should go to get my service A or B done though?

    Is it 12k miles or 15k miles for a diesel?

    12 months or 15k miles, whichever comes first. Alternates between Service A and B, brake fluid every 2nd year, air and fuel filter every 4th year, ATF and filter at 37k miles (or ?4 years old, not sure on this one).

    Great. Thanks for sharing.

    I presume when I checked the website it states 12k that's for petrol.

    If you want to know before it pops up on the dash, go into the menu system and click on assyst.
    It should show which type of service is next and how many days until it's due.

    Does the brains of the car use some sort of algorithm to calculate time of service from usage and time?

    According to the handbook for my S203 which is on ASSYST (and therefore decides when it wants to be serviced) it analyses the oil in iorder to do that. I've always considered the oil the most important item to maintain a healthy engine and coupled with the facts that my annual mileage is reducing and we do a lot of local stop/start trips, I normally have the car serviced way in front of any expected mileage requirement and for the first time ever, it's just started showing "B Service due in 30...29... 28 etc days" in the OBD window.

    Does it actually analyse the oil or work it out from miles done, temeratures min/max and how long the journeys are?
    My uneducated opinion is that ASSYST is all smoke and mirrors to 'show' a higher level of servicing intelligence.
    I do hope there's more to it than I'm thinking, I'm just a doubting Thomas.

    Older ASSYST systems actually did measure oil quality and would deduct miles/time remaining depending on idle time, engine revs, journey times etc.

    NEW ASSSYST just bases it on mileage/time as it makes more money for MB. MB have no reason to extend the service interval as long as possible.

    I think mines just done on miles and time 2008 W204, for years I paid a set monthly fee for a service plan and only did around 4000 miles a year.
    As I was paying the same as everyone else I would expect the same work to be done at the same intervals. They never offered a discount for the date extending and I suspect I got fewer parts fitted as some service parts would show as not needed due to low miles.
    Hence my opinion of ASSYST not being a good thing from my point of view.

    Yes 204 would be the later one.

    Nearly all options items are time/mileage so you probably had a similar number of parts fitted if you had the car more than 3 years....

    With a play on words - i.e.: "Show me the Monet" it's £'s which drives most things and I think ASSYST came about as a means of safely (for MB) reducing operating costs for rental schemes. Bear in mind that it's not all that long ago when all cars had to have a first service (the so called "free service" because there was no charge) at around 1000 miles then it went in at roughly every 6000 etc but various brands started turning that on the head - I think Ford were the first ones to introduce 10,000 mile first service and ongoing intervals. For some brands going right back - such as those under the British Leyland umbrella that would have been unthinkable - heh heh when you picked up your shiny new car, if you found anything faulty the salesman's standard response was "They'll see to that on the first service...". And I said salesman because there were very few sales women back then.

    At least it's true to say that motor vehicles really have improved dramatically over the years!
