A and B Services Explained

Mercedes-Benz owners take great pride in their vehicles, and also in the precision engineering that goes into the automobile. For this reason, it is also extremely important to adhere to maintenance schedules, since this will not only increase the longevity of the engine, but will also continue to enhance the overall performance of your car. So what are the differences between an A Service and B Service? This is a common question from our Mercedes-Benz customers. So we’ve set out the differences. If you would like to book a service with Mercedes-Benz Hertfordshire, or have questions about your service, follow the links above to see more information. However, before you disappear off this page, have a look at the differences between the two services for your treasured Mercedes-Benz.

What is the A Service for my Mercedes-Benz?

The A-Service is typically the first service your Mercedes-Benz will need. It comes at 15,534 miles or when your car turns 1 year old. The exact time is determined by the vehicle’s Flexible Service System. Your vehicle will then next need an A Service typically every 2 years.

What services are performed for the A Service?

The A Service comprises of:

  • Synthetic Motor Oil Replacement

  • Oil Filter Replacement

  • Tyre Inflation Check & Correction

  • Brake Component Inspection

  • Reset Maintenance Counter

The A Service is the smaller service of the two which is reflected in the cost. If you use the Mercedes me app, you will get notifications when your next service is due. The app also shows you the number of miles until your next service is due.

What is the B Service for my Mercedes-Benz?

Your vehicle will need a B-Service at approximately 1 year after the A Service, or at the next 15,534 miles, whichever comes first. The exact time is determined by the vehicle’s Flexible Service System. Then the next B Service will typically be every 2 years, unless you are doing more than 15,534 miles per year.

What services are performed?

The B Service comprises of:

  • Synthetic Motor Oil Replacement

  • Oil Filter Replacement

  • Cabin Dust/Combination Filter Replacement

  • Brake Fluid Exchange

  • Tyre Inflation Check & Correction

  • Brake Component Inspection

  • Reset Maintenance Counter

The B Service is the major service your vehicle will receive and therefore comes in at a higher cost than the A Service. Don’t forget, if you use the Mercedes me app, you will get notifications when your next service is due. The app also shows you the number of miles until your next service is due.

Spread the cost of your servicing with a ServiceCare contract. Prices start from £24 a month, guaranteeing the price of parts and labour for up to four services. Cover also includes additional recommended items such as brake fluid, air filters and screen wash. See more information about a ServiceCare Plan.
