If you’ve just brought your first Mercedes-Benz home to Saco, it’s likely that you’ve also learned the terms “Mercedes-Benz Service A” and “Mercedes-Benz Service B.” What are these services and how do they differ? The service team at Mercedes-Benz Scarborough is here to explain everything you should know! Service A and Service B are critical maintenance intervals that occur on a routine basis. Let’s learn more about what they each entail, below.
You should schedule Mercedes-Benz Service A* after one year or 10,000 miles, whichever milestone comes first. Services performed during the visit could vary a bit depending on your model year, but the general Mercedes-Benz Service A checklist involves:
You should schedule Mercedes-Benz Service B* after two years or 20,000 miles, whichever milestone you hit first. The standard Mercedes-Benz Service B checklist includes:
By now, you may have surmised that Service A and Service B are designed to ensure that the average Falmouth driver gets crucial Mercedes-Benz maintenance approximately once per year. But, their included services are nearly identical, so why have two separate intervals? During Service B, your vehicle receives two additional services: a brake fluid replacement and cabin air filter replacement. Select CLA and GLA AMG® models also receive engine air filter replacement during Service B, but your service tech will know whether this applies to you if you drive either of these models.
Service A and Service B will help keep your Mercedes-Benz on the roads of Cape Elizabeth for a long time. If you’re coming up on either milestone, you can get ahead by scheduling service online with Mercedes-Benz Scarborough!

Mercedes-Benz vehicles deliver lots of driving enjoyment when they’re in motion. However, their ability to adequately stop is perhaps even more important.
