What Are the Differences Between Mercedes-Benz Service A & B?

Mercedes-Benz AMG

Mercedes-Benz Service A* and Mercedes-Benz Service B* are two of the most important items in your Mercedes-Benz maintenance schedule. In general, you’ll schedule one or the other every 10,000 miles, or roughly once per year, alternating between the two**. Of course, any driver who comes this far is bound to wonder about the differences between Service A and Service B. We’ve covered everything you need to know below.

What’s the Mercedes-Benz Service A Checklist?

Mercedes-Benz Service A is first performed after one year or roughly 10,000 miles spent on the roads near Beachwood and Mayfield. After the first visit, you’ll generally be due for Service A every other year (at 30,000 miles, 50,000 miles, and so on). Here’s what’s on the Mercedes-Benz Service A 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
  • 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.

What does Mercedes-Benz Service A cost? Prices will vary depending on a range of factors, but you can always contact us ahead of time to find out what to expect**.

What’s the Mercedes-Benz Service B Checklist?

After 20,000 miles or roughly two years on the road, it’s time to schedule Mercedes-Benz Service B. Subsequent Service B visits will occur at 40,000 miles or four years, 60,000 miles or six years, and so on.  Simply put, Service B is slightly more comprehensive than Service A. Here’s what the Mercedes-Benz Service B 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
  • 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.

So, here’s the difference: Service B includes brake fluid replacement and cabin air filter replacement, in addition to all the tasks covered under Service A. However, you should always check your owner’s manual to be certain. Certain models, like the CLA and the GLA AMG®, also receive an engine air filter replacement with Service B.  For all these reasons, Mercedes-Benz Service B costs are likely to be higher than those associated with Service A**.

What Does ASSYST Plus Have to Do With It?

All new Mercedes-Benz vehicles are built with a smart service tracker that can help to ensure that all parts and fluids are checked and replaced at optimal times. This ASSYST Plus system determines what’s needed, and in some cases, you may need to take care of additional services when you schedule Service A or Service B^. There’s nothing to worry about, since we’ll know exactly how to read your tracker and take care of everything when you schedule service. If you’d like to learn more about caring for your Mercedes-Benz, take a moment to browse our service tips and DIY car care advice from the comfort of your home.
