Mercedes-Benz Service A Checklist 

So, when is Mercedes-Benz Service A* performed? After one year or 10,000 miles, whichever comes first, your vehicle will be due for Mercedes-Benz Service A. The exact services performed will vary slightly depending on the model and year, the Mercedes-Benz Service A checklist generally includes:

  • Synthetic Motor Oil Replacement**
  • Oil Filter Replacement**
  • All fluid level checks and corrections are dependent on factory-recommended service intervals for your vehicle’s year and model
  • Tire inflation check and correction
  • Brake component inspection
  • Reset maintenance counter
  • Adhere 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.

Mercedes-Benz Service B Checklist 

After 2 years or 20,000 miles, whichever comes first, Mercedes-Benz Service B* should be booked. The Mercedes-Benz Service B checklist will ensure that your vehicle is running smoothly for all of your La Puenta commutes:

  • Synthetic Motor Oil Replacement**
  • Oil Filter Replacement**
  • All fluid level checks and corrections are dependent on factory-recommended service intervals for your vehicle’s year and model
  • Tire inflation check and correction
  • Brake component inspection
  • Reset maintenance counter
  • Cabin dust/combination filter replacement
  • Brake fluid exchange
  • Adhere 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

The primary difference between Mercedes-Benz Service A and Mercedes-Benz Service B is the time or mileage interval. Once again, Mercedes-Benz suggests that Service A is taken care of after 1 year or 10,000 miles, whichever comes first. Service B is recommended for drivers who have had their Mercedes-Benz for 2 years or have driven for 20,000 miles, whichever comes first. 

The Mercedes-Benz Service A checklist and the Mercedes-Benz Service B checklist are largely the same, however, certain differences should be noted. Service B will add a brake fluid replacement and a cabin air filter change. Some CLA and GLA AMG® models require an engine air filter replacement at Service B as well.
