Mercedes Benz Flexible Service System (FSS)
Mercedes Benz vehicles made during and after 1998 fall under those that follow a FSS, otherwise known as a Flexible Service System. These models need Mercedes Benz repair FSS services for the life of the vehicle. The commonly known types of services this includes are called Schedule A and Schedule B, but they can even extend to Schedule H. FSS services vary depending on the vehicle class and age, as well as the model. For the Service A Mercedes categories, you need to go for the inspection after 10,000 miles and every subsequent 20,000 miles or whenever the instrument panel message alerts you to do so. Following the warning for maintenance on the dashboard is the best way to time your FSS intervals. These models have cut-down indicator messages that are set to alert a month or 900 miles before the service is due to prepare you. When your vehicle interval time is depleted, you will receive a warning message indicating that Service A is due that time. In case you exceed the FSS date, your car indicator will show signals stating that you are certain days past the interval.
These services may also be referred to as can also find them as Flex A and Flex B. Our Service B schedule is more extensive than Service A schedule. Our long-term service delivery to Mercedes Benz users has given us enough experience to know what your vehicle requires at what time.
