Caring for your Mercedes-Benz model over time is one of the core principles we ascribe to here at Mercedes-Benz of Scottsdale. The exceptional build quality of each Mercedes-Benz vehicle can be maintained through certain common procedures we’re happy to execute at our shop.
Two of the most common procedures we recommend for Scottsdale, Arizona, drivers are our Service A and Service B rundowns.* What are the differences between Service A and Service B? How do these service checks benefit your Mercedes-Benz model? Here’s a quick rundown of what to expect. After reading, contact us with any questions you might have.
No matter the type of Mercedes-Benz model you have sitting in your driveway or garage, there are certain service requirements the vehicle will need. These base requirements are all about keeping your Mercedes-Benz in the best shape possible as you rack up miles and years of driving.
Our Service A procedures typically take place at the 10,000-mile marker or after one year of ownership. Many of these services ensure that your model is aging appropriately and will continue to do so in the future. The list of services at this point includes:
Swapping out the synthetic motor oil for fresh synthetic oil is important. Inspections such as checking the fluid levels and the braking components will help us stay ahead of needed part replacements in the future. Finally, looking over the tires is done to ensure your rubber is helping your Mercedes-Benz model maximize its performance.
The second common service roundup we provide is called Service B, which comes every 20,000 miles or two years. Many of the same services executed during the Service A check-in will be done at this point as well. However, there are a few new procedures taking place that revolve around the current and future performance of your Mercedes-Benz.
The biggest differences between Service A and Service B are the following:
The reason there are so many overlapping services from Service A to Service B is because things such as the synthetic motor oil need to be swapped out at specific mileage intervals, usually about 10,000. These new services come about for the first time, such as the brake fluid exchange, and their purpose is to keep your Mercedes-Benz running as smoothly now as it has been over the first 20,000 miles you’ve been driving it.
Keeping your Mercedes-Benz in top shape means a few routine stops to our Mercedes-Benz of Scottsdale Service Center in Scottsdale, AZ. To help locals understand what’s going on during these stops and when they should occur, we’ve created these Service A and Service B routines. You can book your visit to our shop online, and when you do, we’ll happily come to your home and pick up your model for its needed services!
