Mercedes Benz Service A and B

Common questions about Mercedes Benz A and B service procedures. Let Joe's Garage Inc. Mercedes-Benz service shop in Southampton, NY explain the Mercedes Maintenance Program.

Mercedes Benz uses the Flexible Service System, or FSS, which displays indicators on the dash panel of your vehicle. The FSS is a series of maintenance intervals your Mercedes Benz vehicle will require throughout its lifetime.

The most common are Service A and Service B, which vary with the age and model of your Mercedes-Benz so please contact us to learn which service is due for your vehicle.

At Joe's Garage Inc., we use the latest Mercedes Benz specific diagnostic scan tools and equipment to properly service your vehicle to factory standards. We offer factory matched A and B service schedules, making Joe's Garage Inc. Southampton’s choice for Mercedes Benz service.

Mercedes Benz Service A

Mercedes Benz Service A is recommended every 10,000 miles and is indicated by a single wrench icon on your control panel.

Performance of the Service A work involves:

  • Mercedes Benz synthetic motor oil replacement
  • Oil filter replacement
  • All fluid level checks and corrections are dependent on Mercedes Benz maintenance schedule intervals for your vehicle’s year and model.
  • Tire inflation check and correction
  • Brake inspection
  • Reset maintenance counter
  • Multi-point inspection

5,000 Mile Oil and Filter Change Interval, Inspection and Tire Rotation

After 5,000 miles, we will perform a synthetic motor oil and oil filter replacement, a multi-point inspection and tire rotation. This ensures you’ll get the maximum miles out of your tires with the peace of mind knowing your Mercedes Benz is fully inspected for optimal performance.

Mercedes Benz Service B

Mercedes Benz Service B is recommended every 10,000 miles or 12-months after performing the Service A for 2009 and later Mercedes Benz vehicles. When Service B work is needed, two wrenches will appear on your Mercedes Benz control panel.

Performance of the Service B involves:

  • Mercedes Benz synthetic motor oil replacement
  • Oil filter replacement

  • Reset maintenance counter
  • Cabin dust/combination filter replacement
  • Brake fluid replacement

Then the cycle repeats: another 5,000-mile inspection and tire rotation, a Service A at 10,000 miles, a 5,000-mile inspection and tire rotation, and then Service B after the next 10,000-mile period.
