An Overview of the Mercedes-Benz Service B Interval
Your Mercedes-Benz represents a pinnacle in engineering, thanks to skilled craftsmanship and a network of high-performing components. Mercedes-Benz Service B*, along with Service A*, lets you get the most out of your sedan, coupe, SUV, or convertible by keeping those components in working order. Fortunately, our Master Certified Technicians perform expert Service B repairs—getting our customers back on the road in record time. Read on for an overview of Service B, its frequency, and the types of services it covers.
What is Service B?
Typically, Mercedes-Benz vehicles follow the Flexible Service System (FSS) with Service B and Service A intervals. To ensure your vehicle is well-maintained, Service A** is followed up with Service B**—and vice versa—for the duration of your ownership. To make servicing less overwhelming, your car comes with the Mercedes-Benz Maintenance System. This system displays a notification in your multi-function instrument cluster one month prior to upcoming service—ensuring you never miss a service date!
The initial Service A appointment takes place at 10,000 miles or after 1 year, depending on which comes first. Afterward, Service A is recommended at 20,000-mile/2-year intervals for the best results. At 20,000 miles or after 2 years, Service B is required, and is also recommended at 20,000-mile/2-year intervals. The FSS guarantees you receive either Service A or Service B every 10,000 miles/1 year.
