Merecedes Maintenance 101

A & B Service

When it comes to Mercedes-Benz vehicles, they are built with excellence in mind. Know throughout the world for their beautiful design and high-performance, Mercedes-Benz is among the top German luxury brands in the world alongside notable brands like BMW and Audi. Each vehicle that leaves their facility is built with a level of craftsmanship that you’d expect from a top German automotive engineer. But due to their design, they must go through specific maintenance services in order to maintain it’s high level of performance — the A & B Service.

Each service was designed to repair and replace crucial components within your Mercedes-Benz vehicle, all at specific mileage intervals. Although the services have a couple differences due to the different mile intervals, they still remain similar. Here’s what you can expect at each service.

A Service

When it’s time for your Mercedes to go through it’s A Maintenance Service, you will be notified by a single wrench icon found on the control panel of your Mercedes-Benz. Prior to that, we’ll perform a typical inspection and tire rotation at around 5,000 to 6,000 miles. Here’s what you can expect during the A Service:

  • Synthetic Motor Oil Replacement
  • Fluid Inspection & Correction
  • Oil FIlter Replacement
  • Tire Inflation Check & Correction
  • Brake Inspection
  • Reset Maintenance Counter
  • Follow any required tasks based on your Mercedes’ specific make, model, and year

B Service

Once your A Service Maintenance visit is finished, the B Service is next. You’ll be notified by two wrench icons that will be displayed in your control panel. Although the A & B Service have very similar programs, the B Service does have additional services that are unique to the specific mile interval. Here’s what you can expect during your B Service maintenance visit.
