What are the Differences Between Service A and B?

Mercedes-Benz AMG

If you’re the proud owner of a new or pre-owned Mercedes-Benz vehicle, you’ve probably received a notification about Mercedes-Benz Service A or Mercedes-Benz Service B. These are regular maintenance services that are essential to keeping your vehicle in great condition. Mercedes-Benz of Chantilly covers the difference between Service A and Service B and more below*!

Mercedes-Benz Service A Checklist

South Riding drivers should note that maintenance schedules can vary by vehicle type and year. Always check your owners manual for the exact recommended maintenance times. Generally, Mercedes-Benz Service A is needed at the 1 year/10,000-mile marker. The Mercedes-Benz Service A checklist includes:

  • 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.

Mercedes-Benz Service B Checklist

Mercedes-Benz service B occurs at the 2 year/ 20,000-mile marker, even if you practice DIY car care. As you can see, if you take your car into a Centerville service center for Mercedes-Benz Service B, you’ll see a lot of the same procedures as service A. But there are some differences we’ve highlighted on the Mercedes-Benz Service B checklist:

  • 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.

Every Mercedes-Benz maintenance service includes what is known as a Maintenance Counter Reset, meaning that you’ll still need to take your vehicle in for regular maintenance in Ashburn even if you take care of some tasks at home. It’s worth repeating that your model will have maintenance needs specific to its components; for example, some GLA and GLA AMG® models need an engine air filter replacement.
