Maintenance Interval by Model Year

Was browsing MBUSA website and found a following link;

Mercedes-Benz - Home of C, E, S, CLK, CLS, CL, SLK, SL, SLR, R, GLK, M, GL, G Class

Basically, they posted basic maintenance manuals (stamp books) available to the public from the Model Year 2000. So, went through real quick each of’em and here is an interesting finding.
  • MY 2000, 2001, 2002 & 2003 – 12,000-mile service interval
  • MY 2004 & 2005 – 10,000-mile service interval
  • MY 2006, 2007 & 2008 – 13,000-mile service interval
  • My2009 onward – 10,000-mile service interval, and they don’t even call “FSS” anymore

So, the intervals went up and then back down for service intervals.

Any thought?

The MB engineers are fickle? Just joking but what I find most interesting is these intervals apply to all the classes and so many different engines. I didn't check the AMGs.
