What Is Mercedes Service A, And Why Is It Important?

Do you know your service ABCs? If you’re a Mercedes-Benz owner, it’s likely that one of the things that initially attracted you to the brand is its reputation for meticulous German engineering.  Mercedes-Benz carries this precision into its maintenance requirements and recommends that its vehicles be maintained on an alternating schedule.  After the first 10,000 miles and then every 20,000 miles thereafter, the recommended service is Mercedes Service A.  Then, approximately 2 years later, it’s recommended that the vehicle receives Mercedes Service B.  We will be discussing Mercedes Service A for the remainder of this article.


Why Get The Recommended Service?

Your Mercedes is a fine-tuned machine, and regular attention keeps it that way.  Following is a list of services performed when you bring your vehicle in for a Mercedes Service A visit, and why they benefit you:


  • Mercedes-Benz Synthetic Oil Replacement – Running your car with old, dirty oil is a quick way to wear out your engine prematurely.  We’ll replace the oil in your Mercedes with high-quality synthetic oil that’s specially designed for high-performance engines.
  • Oil Filter Replacement – Like dirty oil, a dirty filter can quickly damage your engine.
  • Brake Component Inspection – Important for safety as well as driving comfort, we’ll make sure your brakes are in perfect working order.
  • Tire Inflation Inspection – Under-inflated tires can drastically reduce your vehicle’s fuel economy, and over-inflated tires can be dangerous and contribute to accidents.  We’ll make sure that your tire pressure is at manufacturer-recommended levels.
  • Fluid Level Checks And Corrections – These can keep your engine from overheating, and keep your car handling and running well.
  • Recommended Maintenance Based On Manufacturer Guidelines For Your Vehicle – We’ll perform any service recommended by Mercedes-Benz for your vehicle, based on mileage and age.


You own a Mercedes because you expect the best, from your vehicle and your life.  Don’t let your investment go to waste.  If you’re not sure whether your Mercedes-Benz is due for Service A or Service B, just give us a call.  We’re glad to help keep your car in prime condition, so you can get back on the road.
