The dealers have nationwide records of recalls, service campaigns, and other warranty replacements performed, but as noted that's it. They run a report called a VMI (vehicle master inquiry).
You are not ENTITLED to have a dealer give you this.
Should you take a potential purchase to a dealer and PAY for a PPI (pre-purchase inspection) it would be ok to ask for VMI information as part of that process.
Should you contemplate purchasing a car from a Mercedes dealer and that car was sold and maintained by that same dealer, you can possibly get some idea how religiously it was maintained. Otherwise--as noted--oil change history is not stored in any database.
