Mercedes-Benz Service A and Mercedes-Benz Service B are two of the most common items on your service schedule, and if you’ve done any research at all, you know that both groupings include Mercedes-Benz oil service, along with other required maintenance items*.
While the precise list of services you’ll receive will be determined by your ASSYST Plus tracking system**, knowing the general differences between Service A and Service B can help you stay one step ahead of the curve. Our Mercedes-Benz service experts have broken down everything you need to know.
Your first Mercedes-Benz Service A appointment should occur after one year or 10,000 miles, whichever comes first. Subsequent Service A appointments will come after 30,000 miles or three years, and after 50,000 miles or five years.
Although services can vary depending on your vehicle and its model year, your Mercedes-Benz Service A checklist should include:
Remember, this is only a guideline! Please 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 should be scheduled for the first time after your vehicle reaches 20,000 miles, or spends roughly two years on the road. Thereafter, you’ll schedule Service B every 20,000 miles or so, at 40,000 miles/four years, 60,000 miles/six years, and so on.
Once again, the precise list of services can vary. However, every Mercedes-Benz Service B checklist should cover the following:
Once again, 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.
In certain cases, your ASSYST Plus tracking system may recommend Service C! Find out what to expect with our team.
The main difference between Service A and Service B has to do with the number of maintenance items that each visit will cover! As you can see from the checklists above, Service B is slightly more extensive, since it covers brake fluid replacement and cabin air filter replacement. Keep in mind that the Service A and Service B checklists will differ if you’re caring for a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Van.
As a result, Mercedes-Benz Service A costs less than Service B**. However, the best way to get an accurate estimate of your Mercedes-Benz Service A or Mercedes-Benz Service B costs is to reach out to our service team directly, at (844) 400-2067.
