What is the difference between Service A and Service B? How do I know which one I need for my Mercedes-Benz?

Mercedes-Benz A Service

For vehicles 2009 and newer, the Mercedes Service A scheduled first visit is at approximately 10,000 miles or 1 year, whichever occurs first, or as needed in which case the service needed icon will illuminate on your vehicles display panel. After the first initial service A at 10,000 miles, service A will be performed every two years or 20,000 miles.

Mercedes Service A includes:

  1. Synthetic Motor Oil Replacement
  2. Oil Filter Replacement
  3. Fluid Level Checks & Corrections
  4. Tire Pressure Check & Reset TPMS if needed
  5. Brake System Inspection
  6. Reset Service Maintenance Icon

Mercedes-Benz B Service

For models 2009 and newer, the Mercedes Service B first visit is at approximately 20,000 miles or 1 year after the first service, whichever occurs first or as needed by your vehicle. Afterwards, Mercedes Service B is performed every 20,000 miles or 2 years.

Mercedes Service B Includes:

  1. Synthetic Motor Oil Replacement
  2. Oil Filter Replacement
  3. Cabin Dust/Combination Filter Replacement
  4. Brake Fluid Exchange
  5. Fluid Level Checks & Corrections
  6. Tire Pressure Check & Reset TPMS if needed
  7. Brake System Inspection
  8. Reset Service Maintenance Icon

Basically, your Mercedes should be serviced every year or 10,000 miles alternating Service A and Service B. As you can see, the difference in the two services is a Cabin Air Filter replacement and performing a Brake Fluid exchange or flush every Service B. Whatever your needs are at your date of service, Ürolube is prepared to take care of you and your vehicle. Happy Driving!
