When it comes to the proper care and maintenance of your luxury car or SUV, the most basic service item is also the most critical. Of course, we're talking about oil changes. And it's particularly important for a high-performance machine like your Mercedes-Benz. Engines contain several metal parts that have to slide against each other thousands of times per minute. But due to their high friction coefficient, these parts resist sliding and wear down extremely quickly without lubrication. Oil creates a thin film between these parts, allowing them to move freely. In the complete absence of oil, the friction heat and wear will escalate exponentially and cause irreparable engine failure.

But lubrication isn't the oil's only purpose. It also helps keep the engine clean by carrying contaminants to a filter. However, the engine's heat will eventually degrade the oil, and the filter will reach its capacity. If left for too long, the oil will lose its lubricity and can actually accelerate engine wear. So, routine oil changes ensure your Mercedes-Benz engine is always performing at its best.

When should I change the oil in my Mercedes-Benz?

Modern Mercedes-Benz vehicles have an oil sensor and an indicator that will illuminate when an oil change is necessary. The interval between oil changes can vary from 5,000 to 10,000 miles depending on the operating conditions and your driving habits.

How much does an oil change cost?

Mercedes-Benz oil change prices can range from $110 to $150. As of this publication, an oil change for a CLA 250 costs $130.95, while a larger vehicle like a Sprinter 2500 Crew Van costs $149.95
