Learn About Different Mercedes-Benz Service Types

Equipped with a Maintenance Service Indicator System that alerts you when a visit to the service center is needed, a Mercedes-Benz is fairly easy to maintain in comparison to other luxury cars.

The system typically starts sending out alerts almost one month in advance to the actual service date; followed by countdown messages to constantly remind you to bring in your vehicle for service.

With Mercedes-Benz, in particular, there are two important maintenance service requirements: the A service and the B service.

The need for A Service is triggered after every 10,000 miles and comprises of a regular check-up.


The following are some standard services that can be expected during your Mercedes-Benz A Service appointment:

  • Oil filter and synthetic motor oil replacement
  • Inspection of brake component
  • Maintenance indicator system reset
  • Inspection and correction of tire inflation
  • All fluid level checks and corrections are dependent on factory-recommended service intervals for your vehicle’s year and model.

The need for B service is triggered after every 20,000 miles and approximately a year after you’re A service appointment. The Mercedes-Benz B service session is a little more detailed and involves the following procedures:

  • Oil filter and synthetic motor oil replacement
  • Cabin dust filter replacement
  • Inspection of the brake component
  • Maintenance indicator system reset
  • All fluid level checks and corrections are dependent on factory-recommended service internals for you vehicle’s year and model.
  • Tire inflation check and correction
  • Brake fluid exchange

Additionally, an overall review of the vehicle is performed, paired with all the service requirements listed in the service sheet for your car.

Disclaimer: Service A/B for model years 2009 and newer. Price advertised for Service A/Service B includes all factory-required components. Please refer to your maintenance booklet for the complete list of factory-required services and details on the specific internals for your vehicle’s year and model.

Maintenance Tips For Your Mercedes-Benz

Maintaining your car is the best way for you to make the most out of your Mercedes-Benz experience. Here are a few maintenance tips to improve the overall driving quality of your vehicle and save money in the long run.

Use Wax That Protects the Exterior of Your Car

Remember when your mother wouldn’t let you go out in the summers without the sunscreen? Well, it’s not only your skin that needs protection against the scorching summer heat, your car does too. Harmful rays of the sun tend to fade the paint job on your luxury vehicle and make it susceptible to wear and tear. We recommend the use of wax that offers protection against UV rays.

Get The Fluid Levels Inspected On Monthly Basis

It is critical for you to ensure that the fluid levels in your Mercedes-Benz are as per requirements. We recommend that you get in touch with our experts to have your brake fluid levels, oil, coolant, and power steering inspected on a monthly basis and maintain your vehicle’s performance.

Check Your Tires Often

Low tire pressure can mean higher fuel consumption and can often cause wear and tear, leading to serious damage to your car. We recommend, you ensure that your tires are well-inflated by getting your tire pressure checked every month.

Schedule Regular Tune Ups

Regular tune ups are the best way to improve performance on the road, improve gas mileage, and extend the life of your car. Schedule monthly tune ups to keep your Mercedes-Benz performing at optimum levels.
