I purchased a C250 about 2 months ago. It is a 2012 and only has about 30k on it. I have recently received a display message that says time for B3 service. What is that?

Asked by Oct 11, 2016 at 09:24 AM about the 2012 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C 250 Luxury

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1 Answer

205

I'm a little confused. The 2012 manual makes no reference to the codes used in older models, just a list of things by mileage: https://www.mbusa.com/vcm/MB/DigitalAssets/pdfmb/maintenancebooklets/2011_Maintenance_Manual.pdf In My 2008 C300, B3 would mean checking almost all components, changing the oil and filter and resetting the maint. minder. Service is at a 13,000 mile interval, not the 10,000 as in the 2012 manual. Call a dealer and get the correct intervals and procedures.....
