What are the Differences Between Service A and B?

Person Changing Car Tire

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!


What is the Mercedes-Benz Service A Checklist? 

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:

  • 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’s the Mercedes-Benz Service B Checklist? 

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: 

  • 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.

Service A vs. Service B Intervals: What Are Their Key Differences?

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 Albany 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.
