Keep reading to learn everything you need to know about Mercedes-Benz Service A & Service B from A & M Motors in Culver City, CA.
What Is Mercedes-Benz Service A & Service B?
Mercedes-Benz Service A & Service B are two different types of service plans that are designed to keep your car running smoothly and efficiently. Service A includes all of the necessary maintenance items that need to be done at specific intervals, like changing the oil and filters, checking the brakes, and so on. Service B, on the other hand, is a more comprehensive service that also includes items like flushing the brake fluid and replacing the cabin filter.

Mercedes-Benz: Service A
Mercedes-Benz Service A is a scheduled service interval that includes an oil change, oil filter replacement, and tire rotation. This service is typically performed every 10,000 miles or 12 months, whichever comes first.
Here’s what’s included with A Service:
- Synthetic motor oil replacement
- Oil filter replacement
- All fluid level checks and corrections dependent on factory-recommended service intervals for your vehicle’s year and model
- Tire inflation check and correction
- Brake component inspection
- Reset maintenance counter
Mercedes-Benz: Service B
Mercedes-Benz Service B is a scheduled service interval that includes all the items in Service A, plus additional inspections and replacements as needed. This service is typically performed every 20,000 miles or 24 months, whichever comes first.
As a part of your B Service, here is the work that will be performed:
- Service A
- Cabin dust/combination filter replacement
- Brake fluid exchange
- Adherence 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: How Do They Differ?
- Oil and Filter Change: Both Service A and Service B include an oil and filter change. It helps to keep your engine running smoothly and efficiently.
- Tire Rotation: Both Service A and Service B include a tire rotation. It helps to evenly distribute wear and tear on your tires, which can help them last longer.
- Inspection of 50+ Items: Service A includes a thorough inspection of more than 50 items on your vehicle, including the brakes, lights, and suspension. This is important because it helps to identify any potential problems early on before they become major repairs.
Additional Checks and Services: Service B includes all of the same items as Service A, plus a few additional checks and services. These additional checks can include an inspection of the engine air filter, brake fluid level, cabin dust/pollen filter, and more.
Service A vs. Service B Codes: What Do they Mean?
If you've ever looked at your Mercedes-Benz maintenance booklet, you may have noticed that there are two different service codes listed for each service interval - Service A and Service B. Service A is the code for a basic service, which includes an oil change and tire rotation. Service B is the code for a more comprehensive service, which in addition to an oil change and tire rotation, also includes a check of your car's brakes, fluids, and tires.
Which service interval is right for your car? The answer depends on how often you drive your car and your driving habits. If you drive in stop-and-go traffic often, you may need to have your car serviced more frequently than someone who drives on the highway most of the time.
If you're not sure which service interval is right for your car, consult your Mercedes-Benz maintenance booklet or give us a call here at A & M Motors. We'll help you determine the best service schedule for your car.
