After investing in a luxury Mercedes-Benz vehicle, protecting their purchase is likely in the forefront of Springfield drivers’ minds. You’ll often hear talk of two important service intervals: Mercedes-Benz Service A and Mercedes-Benz Service B. Your vehicle’s driver information center may have recently alerted you that you’re due for one of these services, but what separates them from each other and what specific service tasks do they encompass? Mercedes-Benz of Eugene answers all of your most pressing questions to help you get the most out of your new or used Mercedes-Benz vehicle, below!
Mercedes-Benz Service A* is performed after one year or 10,000 miles, whichever comes first. The services carried out may vary depending on the specific model year of your vehicle, but Service A includes the following services:
Mercedes-Benz Service B* is performed at 20,000 miles or 2 years, whichever comes first. During Service B, the following services are carried out:
One of the most prevalent differences between Mercedes-Benz Service A and Mercedes-Benz Service B is their time intervals. As we noted for Roseburg and Corvallis drivers up above, Service A is suggested after 1 year or 10,000 miles, whichever passes first, while Service B is recommended after 2 years or 20,000 miles, whichever interval passes first.
Concerning the actual services that get carried out, Service A and Service B tasks are overall very similar. However, during Service B, your vehicle undergoes a brake fluid replacement and a cabin air filter replacement. Certain CLA and GLA AMG® models will also have an engine air filter replacement during Service B.
Certain older model year Mercedes-Benz vehicles may prompt the driver to bring their vehicle in for “Mercedes-Benz A7 Service,” or other combinations of A/B followed by a number between 0 – 9. Each number corresponds to extra service item(s) that needs to be completed in addition to Service A or Service B (indicated by the letter A or B that precedes the number).
What is Mercedes-Benz A7 service? This particular combination indicates a need for Mercedes-Benz Service A maintenance items, plus automatic transmission oil and filter replacement.
Listed below is the full range of letter/number combinations you may at some point see on your dash, and what they indicate a need for in addition to Service A or Service B:
Again, these service codes were previously implemented on older Mercedes-Benz vehicles. If you own a newer late-year model and it requires any of the extra services listed above, you will simply receive a notification for Mercedes-Benz Service A or Mercedes-Benz Service B on your dash. When you bring your vehicle to our service center, our trusted technicians will let you know if any of these extra items are required.
