What is the Service B Interval? We Have the Details!
If you’re planning to purchase – or already own – a Mercedes-Benz, chances are you appreciate the energetic performance of the brand. To maintain the power of your vehicle for as long as possible, it’s important to keep up on Service B* repairs. Service B is one of two maintenance schedules most late Mercedes-Benz vehicles follow, and includes a variety of auto services your car needs to perform optimally. Read on to learn more about Service B repairs and the importance of choosing professionals for the job!
When is Service B Needed?
To simplify maintenance management, your Mercedes-Benz vehicle adheres to the Flexible Service System (FSS), which includes Service A and B. Service B, along with Service A, are performed according to your vehicle’s model and year. Generally, late-model Mercedes-Benz coupes, sedans, roadsters, and SUVs require Service B at 20,000 miles, or after 2 years – whichever comes first. As the secondary interval in the FSS, Service B (for newer models)** includes all of the same repairs as Service A, as well as a few extras:
- Mobil1 Synthetic Motor Oil Replacement^
- Brake fluid exchange
- Fluid level checks and corrections according to your vehicle’s recommended service interval
- Oil Filter Replacement^
- Brake component checkup
- Tire inflation inspection
- Cabin air filter replacement
- Maintenance counter reset
