Difference Between A & B Servicing For Mercedes Vechicles
When it comes to owning a car, having regular maintenance and repairs is necessary and vital to extending the life of your car. For the most part, repairs and scheduled maintenance comes pretty standard across most brands of cars. However, German automakers such as BMW, Porsche and Mercedes often have specialty repairs that need to be treated by trained technicians or specialists. With Mercedes, the company has made it so the maintenance needs are usually separated into two selections; A service and B service. Here at Boston Motor Werks, we have technicians for each BMW, Porsche & now Mercedes vehicles to ensure the proper maintenance is applied. Each technician are highly trained in their field to offer optimal services to our clients. Our Mercedes specialists are knowledgeable for both types of services whether it be A or B.
Whenever your Mercedes machine is ready for either of these services, you will receive an alert from the car’s computer system letting you know its time for an inspection. Once you bring your vehicle to our shop, our technicians will know exactly the type of service to perform based on our diagnostics software in combination with your car’s computer. The big thing that confuses people with Mercedes services is knowing what comes with each service. Below is the differences between each service and what to expect when taking your Mercedes vehicle in for a repair.
Like with moth services, the frequency of getting repairs is based upon how often you drive your car, how long, how you handle your cars as well as other factors. For Mercedes, if your car was made after 2009 you will need to service after its first year or at 10,000 miles on the road. Then again after every two years or 20,000 miles. Maintenance that often comes with Service A includes:
- Replacing oil filters and synthetic motor oil.
- Checking levels for all fluids and adjusting them to factory standards.
- Checking and adjusting tire pressure.
- Inspecting brakes for any issues.
- Resetting your car’s internal counter for the next Service A visit.
With any car service, our specialists take into account of your cars year, make and model to gather the right sheet of information needed for the service. That way we ensure the most proper maintenance for your exact year and model of car. We are proud of our machines and want you to feel comfortable that your car will come out performing at its best.
Just like with service A, service B varies on your vehicles specifics as well as when it was made. After 2009, you should have your vehicle brought in after every 20,000 miles or every two years. The specifics of Service B maintenance for Mercedes is as follows:
- Replacing oil filter, synthetic oil, cabin dust filter and combination.
- Exchanging brake fluids and inspecting brakes for any issues.
- Checking tire pressure.
- Checking fluid levels and adjusting to factory settings
- Resetting the counter for the next Service B inspection.
