The Mercedes-Benz Maintenance Schedule

Basic Information for All Mercedes Owners

Regular maintenance is an important part of taking care of any vehicle. For your Mercedes-Benz, keeping up with the manufacturer-recommended schedule can help you avoid costly Mercedes repair services. The schedule is broken into two types of service: A and B. Below is a little information on what to expect with each service type.

A-Service

Your Mercedes is equipment with a Flexible Service System that monitors your vehicle and recommends the right time for each service. Typically, you will need your first A-service at around 10,000 miles or one year of ownership. Following this, it will pop up every 20,000 miles or two years approximately.

The A-service is the lesser of the two service types. These are the maintenance tasks you can expect:

  • Motor oil change
  • Oil filter change
  • Fluid-level check and correction
  • Tire-inflation check and correction
  • Brake inspection
  • Maintenance counter reset

Some of the specifics of this service may depend on your model and year. However, for most Mercedes-Benz vehicles, the above is a good guideline for the normal service.

B-Service

The B-service typically happens around 20,000 miles or one year after the first A-service. It then repeats every 20,000 miles or every two years approximately. These are the maintenance tasks you can expect from the B-service:

  • Motor oil change
  • Oil filter change
  • Cabin air filter change
  • Brake fluid exchange
  • Fluid-level check and correction
  • Tire-inflation check and correction
  • Brake inspection
  • Maintenance counter reset

As with the A-service, the specifics depend on your vehicle. Check your owner’s manual for more information.

Other Services

Several of the A- and B-service maintenance tasks as inspections. If you need corrections or Mercedes repair services, there may be more involved in your servicing. Speak with your mechanic for more information.

Other Vehicles

Mercedes AMG vehicles and those equipped with either a diesel or V12 engine have different maintenance schedules. You can find the relevant information on your owner’s manual.
