I always tell people to not neglect two maintenance items that are frequently overlooked because they are the only two items that occur in time intervals instead of mileage intervals. Because of this, they aren't included in any of the scheduled maintenance services, i.e., 15k service, 30k service, etc.:
1. brake fluid - Mercedes requires replacement every 2 years.
2. radiator coolant - Mercedes requires replacement every 3 years.
2001 E430, Bourdeaux Red, Oyster interior.
