Protecting the environment
H
Natural resources form the basis of our existence on this planet. The objectives of our
policy are for these resources to be used
sparingly and in a manner which takes the
requirements of both nature and humanity
into account.
Our declared policy is integrated environmental protection. This policy starts at the
root causes and encompasses in its management decisions all the consequences
for the environment which could arise from
production processes or the products
themselves.
You too can help to protect the environment by operating your Mercedes-Benz in
an environmentally responsible manner.
Operating conditions and your individual
driving style to a large extent influence fuel
consumption and the rate of engine, brake,
and tire wear. To reduce fuel consumption
and the rate of wear, please consider the
following:
2
• Avoid short trips.
• Make sure that the tire pressures are always correct.
• Avoid frequent, abrupt acceleration.
• Do not carry any unnecessary weight.
• Remove ski holders and roof racks once
you no longer need them.
• Do not warm up the engine with the car
stationary.
• Shift gears such that each gear is used
only up to 2/3 of its maximum engine
speed.
• Keep an eye on the vehicle's fuel consumption.
A regularly serviced vehicle will also help
protect the environment. You should adhere to the maintenance intervals displayed by the Maintenance System service
indicator, along with other maintenance
work described in this booklet.
We recommend that you have maintenance
services performed by an authorized
Mercedes-Benz Light Truck Center using
Genuine Mercedes-Benz parts.

Maintenance Booklet
Introduction
We want you to enjoy your MercedesBenz automobile. Vehicle safety and operational reliability are two very important factors and to maintain them,
regular maintenance services are necessary.
We continuously strive to improve our
product and ask for your understanding
that we reserve the right to make
changes in the periodic maintenance
work which is required for our vehicles.
The information in this manual is
accurate as of the editorial date. At the
time of your scheduled maintenance
appointments with your authorized
Mercedes-Benz Center, the most current
maintenance work information will be
utilized for your vehicle’s age or mileage.
Please check with your authorized
Mercedes-Benz Center for any changes
to the periodic maintenance work
required for your vehicle.
4
Your Mercedes-Benz comes equipped
with the Mercedes-Benz Maintenance
System. The Maintenance system tracks
distance driven and the time elapsed
since your last service. In addition, it calculates service items that need to be performed and other required maintenance
work. The next necessary maintenance
service is indicated in the multifunction
display in the instrument cluster.
The maintenance services will be indicated by showing a service type A through
type H in the multifunction display.
Types A through H are classified based on
the estimated time needed to perform
the maintenance service, ranging from up
to approximately one hour (type A) to up
to approximately eight hours (type H).
When scheduling a maintenance appointment with your authorized MercedesBenz Center, always indicate the service
type that appears in the multifunction
display. This will help the Mercedes-Benz
Center to schedule your vehicle maintenance in the most efficient manner.
Maintenance Booklet
Introduction
A descriptive listing of the service items
1-20 are contained in this booklet,
starting on page 58. Following each
maintenance service, your MercedesBenz Center will reset the Maintenance
System service indicator by confirming
the service items performed.
!
If the Maintenance System maintenance service counter was inadvertently reset, have a Mercedes-Benz
Center correct it. Please only reset if
the proper maintenance service has
been performed. Resetting the system without performing the proper
maintenance service will result in
engine and/or other vehicle damage
not covered by the Mercedes-Benz
Limited Warranty.
Tire rotation - Your vehicle’s tires are a
critical component to overall vehicle
performance and vehicle stability. The
useful life of tires will vary and is
proportional to tire type, speed rating,
ambient conditions, tire loading, tire
inflation pressure, road surfaces, and
individual driving style, among other
factors. Therefore, Mercedes-Benz
recommends regular checks for wear and
proper inflation and, if applicable to your
vehicle’s tire configuration, tire rotation.
Tire rotations can be performed on
vehicles with the same tire dimensions all
around. If your vehicle is equipped with
the same tire dimensions all around, tires
can be rotated by observing a front-torear rotation pattern that will maintain
the intended rotation (spinning) direction
of the tire (on unidirectional tires, an
arrow on the sidewall indicates the
intended rotation or spinning direction of
the tire). In some cases, such as when
your vehicle is configured with staggeredsize (different tire sizes, front vs. rear),
tire rotations are not possible.
5
Maintenance Booklet
Introduction
If your vehicle’s tire configuration allows
for tire rotation, tire rotation should be
performed in accordance with the tire
manufacturer’s recommended intervals,
or sooner at first signs of irregular
(uneven) tread wear. Tire manufacturer’s
rotation recommendations will
necessitate a tire rotation at least once in
between maintenance services and at
every maintenance service based on
Mercedes-Benz maintenance intervals.
The first tire rotation, so long as it occurs
before 6,500 miles (vehicle odometer),
will be provided at no charge by an
authorized Mercedes-Benz Light Truck
Center courtesy of Mercedes-Benz.
Should a tire rotation not be possible for
your vehicle’s tire configuration, an
authorized Mercedes-Benz Light Truck
Center will check your tires for proper tire
inflation pressure and perform a tread
inspection, also at no charge courtesy of
Mercedes-Benz, so long as this occurs
before 6,500 miles (vehicle odometer).
6
For your convenience, this Maintenance
Booklet contains a tire rotation
confirmation page on which you can
record the date and mileage when tire
rotations were performed.
Severe operating conditions - The
maintenance intervals have been
determined so that the vehicle, under
normal operating conditions, should
operate properly between maintenance
services. Severe operating conditions
may call for correspondingly sooner
replacement of the following items:
INTERIOR FILTERS (e.g. dust filter,
recirculating air filter, activated charcoal
filter or combination filter) are replaced
as called for by the Maintenance System.
Under severe dust conditions, or with the
Climate Control frequently operating in
the air recirculation mode, the filters
should be replaced correspondingly
sooner and changed more frequently
than as called for by the Maintenance
System.
Maintenance Booklet
Introduction
SPARK PLUGS. The Maintenance System
calls for spark plug replacement every
60,000 miles or 5 years, whichever
comes first. Severe operating conditions
(frequent starting and stopping,
excessive idling, sustained fast highway
driving) may call for spark plugs to be
replaced correspondingly sooner.
COOLANT. Have the coolant (water/anticorrosion/antifreeze mixture) replaced
every 150,000 miles or 15 years, see
page 64. Replacement of coolant may be
required more frequently if coolant is not
maintained according to instructions
and/or other than approved anticorrosion/antifreeze products for your vehicle
are being used. For instructions on coolant, see “Coolants” in your vehicle Operator’s Manual. For a listing of approved
anticorrosion/antifreeze products for
your vehicle, refer to the Factory Approved Service Products pamphlet, or
contact an authorized Mercedes-Benz
Center.
Wear items - While the Maintenance
System calls for inspection of certain
wear items, the system does not make
any judgment on the condition of these
wear items. Only a qualified technician
can determine if a wear item needs to be
replaced.
Engine oils and oil filters are
specifically tested for their suitability in
our engines and durability for our service
intervals. Therefore, only use approved
engine oils and oil filters required for
vehicles with Maintenance System. For a
listing of approved engine oils and oil
filters, refer to the Factory Approved
Service products pamphlet, or contact an
authorized Mercedes-Benz Light Truck
Center.
Using engine oils and oil filters of
specification other than those expressly
required for the Maintenance System or
changing of oil and oil filter at change
intervals longer than those called for by
the Maintenance System will result in
engine damage not covered by the
Mercedes-Benz Limited Warranty.

Maintenance Booklet
Introduction
Regular checks
In addition to the services, we recommend that you check the following items
regularly (for example: weekly, when refueling, or before any long journey):
• Engine oil level - Depending on how
your vehicle is equipped, check the engine oil level using the oil level dipstick
or the control system via the multifunction steering wheel/display. Further
information about engine oil level
measurement can be found in the vehicle Operator’s Manual.
• Coolant level - Please refer to the Operator’s Manual for the correct procedure to check the coolant level.
• Brake fluid level - If brake fluid has to
be added, see an authorized Mercedes-Benz Light Truck Center to determine the cause, e.g. leaks or worn
brake pads.
8
• Windshield washing system - If the
washer fluid level drops below 1/3, the
windshield washer fluid level warning
lamp will illuminate. Add washer fluid
mixed with Mercedes-Benz windshield
washer solvent/concentrate, test
function and check wiper blades.
• Check lights
• Tire condition and pressures –
Check at least every other week.
Please refer to section “Tires and
wheels” in the Operator’s Manual for
guidelines and correct procedures to
check tire condition and pressures.
Please refer to the Factory Approved
Service Products booklet or see your
Mercedes-Benz Center for more information on selecting the proper fluids, lubricants, filters and oils for your vehicle.

Maintenance Booklet
Introduction
Gasoline Engines
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and, in California, the Air Resources
Board have certified that the emission
control systems of your vehicle comply
with the applicable exhaust emission
standards for model year 2008 vehicles.
This vehicle also complies with the applicable Canadian Motor Vehicle Emission
Standards.
To be certain that the emission control
systems function as designed, regular
maintenance is necessary for components of the vehicle which affect exhaust
and evaporation emissions composition.
The vehicle owner is responsible for the
regular maintenance of the emission control system, as well as the use of premium unleaded gasoline with an anti-knock
index of at least 91 (displayed on the
pump) in all gasoline engine models unless otherwise specified.
Failure to properly maintain the emission
system may result in repairs not being
covered by the emission system warranties.
Explanations of each maintenance job
are given in numerical order on page 67.

b) Mercedes-Benz USA, LLC approves
the use of B5 biodiesel (standard
diesel with a maximum of up to 5%
biodiesel content) in all Common
Rail Injection Diesel "CDI-engines."
Diesel fuels containing a higher percentage of biodiesel content will cause
damage to your engine and are not approved.
As biodiesel can be refined from a variety
of raw materials resulting in widely varying properties, the only approved biodiesel content is one that meets ASTM
D6751 specification. It must also have
the necessary oxidation stability (min. 6h,
proved with EN14112 method ) to prevent damage to the system from deposits
and/or corrosion.
Please ask your service station for further
information. If the B5 biodiesel blend is
not sufficiently labeled to clearly indicate
that it meets the above standards, please
do not use it. The Mercedes-Benz limited
warranty does not cover damage caused
by the use of fuels not meeting Mercedes-Benz approved fuel standards.
Maintenance Booklet
c) The specified engine maintenance
jobs have to be performed completely and at the required intervals.
d) The operation of the emission control system must not be altered in

Description of Emission System Maintenance Jobs
The composition of exhaust emissions is
influenced not only by the special emission
control equipment, but also by various engine components and their adjustments.
Therefore, emission system maintenance
must include these engine components.
Some maintenance jobs are actually only
tests. They are important however, because they allow early detection of discrepancies which can later lead to
increased exhaust emissions. It is generally less expensive to have such items adjusted immediately rather than allowing
them to contribute to costly repairs. The
maintenance intervals have been determined so that the vehicle, under normal
conditions, should operate properly between services.
0101 Engine oil and filter change
Change the engine oil and oil filter every
10,000 miles. If oil consumption should increase, determine the cause and take necessary corrective steps. Do not reset the
Maintenance System service indicator if
the oil is topped up or changed outside the
interval of 10,000 miles.
0980 Replace air filter element
Under normal dust conditions, replace air
filter element approximately every 40,000
miles or 4 years. Clean air filter cover and
housing prior to removal of air filter element.
0780 Replace fuel filter
Replace the fuel filter approximately every
150,000 miles or 15 years (gasoline engines) or 20,000 miles or 2 years (diesel
engine).
1351 Check engine poly-V-belt condition
The poly-V-belt is subject to wear and aging. It must be checked for cracks and
wear at every service 2. Replace poly-Vbelt if necessary.
1580 Replace spark plugs
Spark plugs are subject to electrode erosion and must be replaced every 60,000
miles or 5 years, or more frequently as may
be required when subject to severe operating conditions.
