Give Your Vehicle the Attention It Needs with Service B
So, you’ve had your car for some time now, and it’s finally alerting you that it’s time for your scheduled Service B maintenance. If you’re already familiar with Service A, then the necessity and timing of Service B* should come as no surprise to you. Keep reading to learn more about Service B and when the best time to get it done is, then bring your vehicle to the Mercedes-Benz service experts at Mercedes-Benz of Honolulu instead of the corner car repair shop for fast and thorough service.
What is the Recommended Service B Interval?
Service B is the second of two main scheduled vehicle maintenance intervals for Mercedes-Benz vehicles. This service normally takes place about a year after Service A or when your late-model car (MY09 and newer)** reaches the 20,000-mile mark. The exact timing of your Service B scheduling will vary depending on your particular driving habits, but the 20,000-mile mark is the standard. As it did with Service A, your vehicle’s Maintenance Service Indicator will alert you about a month before your maintenance is due. It will also let you know when you have a few days left and after the recommended maintenance time has passed.
What Does It Include?
Service B is another vehicle checkup that your Mercedes-Bens vehicle will need to receive when it hits 20,000 miles. This service is a bit more intense than Service A, in that it covers many of the same things as Service A with the addition of a few new components as well. When you come into Mercedes-Benz of Honolulu you can expect your Service B required maintenance* to include:
- Synthetic motor oil replacement
- ^Oil filter replacement
- All fluid level checks and corrections (depending on the factory recommended service intervals for the vehicle’s year and model)
- Cabin dust/combination filter replacement
- Tire inflation check and correction
- Inspection of all belts and hoses
- Inspect and rotate tires
- Brake component inspection
- Interior and exterior lamp checks
- Reset of maintenance counter
- Mercedes-Benz of Honolulu 32-point inspection and road test
