I've got an '04 CLK55 and it's not had the brake fluid changed. However
I've also got an ML and that did have to have the brake fluid changed at the
last service but I think this was due to the fact that both the pads and
disks were replaced...
Services on your vehicle should be performed every 12 months or 10,000 miles.
Your vehicle is set up for "FSS" which stands for "Flexible Service System".
That means that the service interval will vary depending on a number of
factors... "time since last service, oil viscocity, driving style, etc". I
always recommend that AMG vehicles , because of their High Performance
nature, be serviced based on the 12mo//10km schedule. The factory will cover
those services for the first 4 years or 50K miles, so, why not? As far as the
other "covered" services on your 2004 vehicle, they are the "brake fluid
service" and the "cooling system service". These services are recommended as
Brake fluid service: every 2 years
Cooling system service: every 3 years
Other minor service requirements are the responsibility of the owner. Also,
your first real "MAJOR" service will come about after four years or about 60k
Oh yes, please make sure they do not rotate the tires on your AMG product.
Don't laugh, I've seen it done. :)
Service intervals for years 1997 and older vary from above. Also, things
change a little bit from years 2005 and up.
Consult your owners manual and your friendly service advisor. Any time
someone tells you you have to do this or that to your vehicle, ask to see it
