Mercedes-Benz Servicing: Service A and B Explained

Mercedes-Benz is a brand renowned for high quality engineering and precision. If you own a Mercedes-Benz vehicle, it’s important to remember that cars of such a high calibre need to correctly maintained to ensure they continue to run at optimum performance. That is why we always recommended regular servicing.

At Inchcape Mercedes-Benz, we offer two servicing options: an A Service or B Service. The question is - what’s the difference? This is a query that often arises, so we’re going to highlight the key differences between these two servicing alternatives, and you can determine the best one for you and your Mercedes-Benz.

 

Mercedes-Benz A Service

Designed for newer vehicles, the A Service is the smaller service and the cheaper of the two options. Your Mercedes-Benz will most likely require its first A Service once it reaches one year old, and typically every 2 years thereafter.

The A Service includes:

  • Synthetic Motor Oil Replacement
  • Oil Filter Replacement
  • Tyre Inflation Check & Correction

The B Service is a major service best suited to older Mercedes-Benz vehicles or vehicles that clock up more mileage. It is more costly than an A Service, but it is more extensive. You can arrange a B Service approximately one year after an A Service, and usually every 2 years subsequently, depending on the average number of miles you drive per year.

What is included in an B Service?

The B Service includes:

  • Synthetic Motor Oil Replacement
  • Oil Filter Replacement
  • Cabin Dust/Combination Filter Replacement
