Buying a Mercedes-Benz vehicle means you get the luxury treatment, which includes all the information and resources you need to keep your luxury vehicle running in tip-top shape and looking good for the long run. While you can always find recommendations specific to your vehicle in the owner’s manual, there are also more generalized service schedules for the Mercedes-Benz lineup. Newer Mercedes-Benz models will display service alerts on the vehicle’s instrument cluster, typically stating Service A through H. These codes correspond to the time needed to perform such maintenance and depend on the age/mileage of your vehicle.
The Service A scheduled maintenance visit should take place after the first 10,000 miles or first year of ownership. For vehicles model years 2009 and newer, Service A is performed after every 20,000 miles or every two years after the first year (e.g. 30,000 miles, 50,000 miles, etc.). The Service A maintenance schedule includes the following items:
The Service B scheduled maintenance visit is at 20,000 miles, or one year after your Service A maintenance. Like Service A, Service B is then performed every 20,000 miles or every two years (e.g. 40,000 miles, 60,000 miles, etc.). Service B includes the following items:
Certain Mercedes-Benz vehicles — like AMG models or electric models — will also require specific services to properly maintain them. AMG models will need things like a rear axle oil change every 2,000 miles and an engine air filter replacement, transmission oil and filter replacement, and a V12 AMG coolant service every 30,000 miles. Electric models won’t need oil changes, but they will require the other Service A and B maintenance items.
