Are you looking for Mercedes Servicing for your Van or Car in Lindford or Bordon ? If so, RPL Automotive, the BEST Independent Mercedes Garage in Lindford, will service your Mercedes Car, or service your Mercedes Van. At RPL Automotive, you're in safe hands, we pride ourselves on giving your vehicle the best care possible.

The secret to keeping your Mercedes vehicle running smoothly and reliably is regular servicing, this is especially so if your Mercedes is used in extreme conditions or is subject to high mileages.

Regular servicing will not only extend the life of your Mercedes vehicle, but it will go a long way to help maintain the value of your vehicle should you ever decide to sell it.

Did you know that you are not obliged to have your new Mercedes vehicle serviced by the Mercedes Main Dealer in order to comply with the warranty conditions of your Mercedes?

This is because in 2003 a new European law was introduced called the “European block exemption directive”. Under this legislation we can service your Mercedes car or van, EVEN IF IT IS LESS THAN THREE YEARS OLD, and it does not affect your warranty. We can even access Mercedes DSB (Digital Service Book) system to record your servicing details.

It's worth remembering a Mercedes Service is not the same thing as an MOT, and vise-versa. It's important to have both.

Why choose an Independent Mercedes Specialist for Mercedes Servicing?

Perhaps the question should be, why not choose an Independent Mercedes Specialist to service my vehicle? As a recognised Mercedes specialist, RPL Automotive in Lindford, ensures that your vehicle will be serviced by a fully qualified Mercedes trained technician; he will use genuine Mercedes Filters, Spark Plugs and seals where available, and he will record your service details in the Mercedes Digital Service Book. Exactly the same way as if your Mercedes Vehicle was serviced at a Mercedes Main Dealer. The main difference is in the price, Mercedes Main Dealers aren't renowned for being affordable. Whilst independent Mercedes specialists like RPL Automotive are not subject to the same overheads and constraints as a main dealer, which is reflected in our prices.

What’s in a Mercedes Service?

Mercedes services are split into two types referred to as type ‘A’ or type ‘B’ and on vehicles made after 2009 these services run on Mercedes Flexible Service schedules that are based on the usage of your Mercedes Vehicle. This system ensures that you service your vehicle just at the right time; not too early so you waste money, and not too late so you risk causing unnecessary wear and damage to your engine.

Whenever your vehicle is due for an A or B service, the system will alert you; it will then tell our technicians exactly what is needed once you bring your vehicle to our Mercedes workshop in Lindford. With Mercedes Flexible Service system, you’ll know exactly how to take care of your Mercedes, and can keep it in premium condition at minimal cost.

Did you know?
  • Your Mercedes service is tailored to your car’s make, model, mileage and age.
  • Our technicians are highly trained, and use genuine Mercedes-Benz parts.
  • With our free collection & delivery service, you can stay at home while your Mercedes is serviced.

Service A

The frequency with which you will need Service A varies based on where you drive, how you drive, and other factors your Mercedes senses. Your Mercedes, if made after 2009, will need this type of service after its first year. or 10,000 miles. Then again after every 2 years or 20,000 miles.

In performing a Mercedes A Service, we are careful to take into account your vehicle’s specific features. We identify its model and production year, obtain the relevant service sheet, and service it accordingly.

Service B

The need for a Mercedes B Service, like that for an A Service, varies with the vehicle’s specifics and your driving style. Your Mecedes, if manufactured after 2009 will need a B service after the first year or 20,000 miles, and then every 2 years or 20,000 miles after that.
