Mercedes-Benz vehicles follow two important service schedules: Mercedes-Benz Service A and Mercedes-Benz Service B. If you’ve been notified via your driver information center that you’re due for one of these services, you may be questioning what these services include and how they differ. If you want to know more about Mercedes-Benz Service A and B tasks and intervals, the service experts at Mercedes-Benz of Los Angeles are here to share more!

The Mercedes-Benz Service A Checklist

Due after one year or 10,000 miles, Mercedes-Benz Service A* is the first of these two service intervals. Some services can vary depending on the model year, but typically Mercedes-Benz Service A tasks include:

  • Synthetic Motor Oil Replacement**
  • Oil Filter Replacement**
  • All fluid level checks and corrections are dependent on factory-recommended service intervals for your vehicle’s year and model
  • Tire inflation check and correction
  • Brake component inspection
  • Reset maintenance counter
  • Adhere to all required elements listed by model year and specific model as indicated on the corresponding service sheet for Mercedes-Benz Maintenance Systems in the USA.

The Mercedes-Benz Service B Checklist

Carried out at two years or 20,000 miles, Mercedes-Benz Service B* covers many of the same tasks as Service A, with a couple of additions. Service B tasks include:

  • Synthetic Motor Oil Replacement**
  • Oil Filter Replacement**
  • All fluid level checks and corrections are dependent on factory-recommended service intervals for your vehicle’s year and model
  • Tire inflation check and correction
  • Brake component inspection
  • Reset maintenance counter
  • Cabin dust/combination filter replacement
  • Brake fluid exchange
  • Adhere to all required elements listed by model year and specific model as indicated on the corresponding service sheet for Mercedes-Benz Maintenance Systems in the USA.

Differences in Service A vs. Service B

Time intervals remain one of the main differences between Mercedes-Benz Service A vs. Service B, with Service A due after 1 year or 10,000 miles and Service B due after 2 years or 20,000 miles. Once you get past the service intervals, Service A and Service B tasks overlap quite a bit. Still, there are a couple of tasks that are only performed during the Service B interval. At your Service B appointment, your vehicle will receive a brake fluid replacement and a cabin air filter replacement. Models like the CLA and GLA AMG® vehicles will also receive an engine air filter replacement during Service B.
