The Differences Between Mercedes-Benz Service A & B

Having your Mercedes-Benz serviced regularly as recommended helps protect your investment while ensuring that it’s running at peak performance. To assist you in doing so, Mercedes-Benz offers two flexible service packages: Service A and Service B. The correct model and production year of your Mercedes-Benz is identified and the relevant service sheet is obtained so your vehicle can be serviced to the manufacturer’s exact standards.


Some Mercedes-Benz vehicles have unique service and maintenance needs. If you own a diesel Mercedes-Benz, one with a V12 engine, a Mercedes-Benz produced by AMG® or one that was made in 2015, speak to a service provider to determine the ideal maintenance schedule for your vehicle.

Flexible Service System: Schedule A

In general, your Mercedes-Benz will experience its Service A required maintenance when it reaches 10,000 miles or after one year of driving for 2009 model years and newer. Your vehicle’s Flexible Service System will determine the exact time when service is required.

Mercedes-Benz Service A in Westminster includes the following checks and services:

  • Synthetic oil change and replacement
  • Replace oil filter
  • Check all fluid levels and correct as necessary
  • Brake components inspection
  • Tire inflation check and correction if needed
  • Maintenance counter reset

Flexible Service System: Schedule B

Service B first occurs typically at about 20,000 miles or one year after Service A. Thereafter, you’ll usually have your Mercedes-Benz serviced every two years or every 20,000 miles. Again, your vehicle’s Flexible Service System determines the exact time since its frequency depends on your particular driving habits, vehicle and other factors.

Mercedes-Benz Service B in Westminster includes the following services, as recommended for your particular year and model: :

  • Cabin dust or combination filter replaced
  • Check all fluid levels and correct if necessary
  • Tire inflation check and correction
  • Oil filter replacement
  • Synthetic oil change and replacement
  • Brake component inspection
  • Brake fluid exchange
  • Reset maintenance counter

The service system for Mercedes models with diesel is a bit different. Service intervals are different and additional services are performed. Your service advisor will provide you will all the details. Mercedes takes the time to keep its valued customers up to speed with specific information.

  • Fuel filter is replaced
  • The AdBlue fluid is replenished
  • All repairs are specific to the car’s model and year.

Mercedes cars made in 2015 and newer by AMG® and vehicles with V12 engines have specific service needs. Be sure to consult with your service advisor about these unique needs. You’ll also need to follow their instructions on how to maintain the vehicle.

Mercedes-Benz offers a full range of services for vehicles, in addition to maintenance instructions and care. Contact us today for more information on how to keep your Mercedes in premium condition.
