Mercedes-Benz Service A (for vehicles MY 2009 and newer)

You've made a great investment when deciding to buy a Mercedes-Benz model from Knauz Continental Autos. When it comes to keeping that investment in like-new condition, it's important to follow the recommended service levels of Mercedes-Benz.

Mercedes-Benz utilizes a Flex Schedule for maintenance, prompted by indicators on the control panel of your vehicle. Your first service should occur between 9,000 and 10,000 miles. This is when we perform an Inspection and Tire Rotation Service.

Following that interval, your next service will occur when a single wrench icon illuminates on your control panel. The single wrench indicates it is time for Service A.

Here is what we do under Service A:

  • Synthetic Motor Oil Replacement.
  • Oil Filter Replacement.
  • All fluid level checks and corrections are dependent on factory-recommended service intervals for your vehicle's year and model.
  • Tire inflation check and correction.
  • Brake component inspection.
  • Reset maintenance counter.
  • Adhere to all required elements listed by model year and specific model as indicated on the corresponding service sheet for Mercedes-Benz Maintenance Systems in the U.S.
Price advertised for Service A/Service B includes all factory-required components. Please refer to your maintenance booklet for the complete list of factory-required services and details on the specific intervals for your vehicle's year and model. Services and pricing for Service A/Service B may vary due to your driving habits, mileage, and local environmental conditions. Please refer to your maintenance booklet for additional details and general guidelines for your vehicle's year and model. 


Why We Do Service A

Keeping your Mercedes-Benz model in top condition and maintained according to factory requirements involve more than a quick lube and oil change. For Service A, we inspect and clean the air filter, which protects your engine from harmful foreign particles. As gasoline and oxygen is combusted within your engine, it passes through a filter and a series of injectors. If these components become dirty and clogged, it can lead to poor performance and decreased fuel economy.

Here at your local Mercedes-Benz dealer, the service center also recommends replacing the dust filter, which, when functioning properly, prevents harmful contaminants from entering the interior of your vehicle. Next, we inspect your fuel lines and connectors for any damage or wear, and we check your fuel tank vapor vent system, hoses, and fuel tank supports. It's important that you trust only a Mercedes-Benz Factory Trained and Certified Technician to perform these functions.

Exhaust pipes, mufflers, and hangers are also inspected for cracks, deterioration, or damage. Additionally, your brake lines and hoses need to be checked for cracks or damage, and your tires inspected for uneven wear. These are all preventative checks designed to keep your Mercedes-Benz on the road and trouble-free.



Mercedes-Benz Service B (for vehicles MY 2009 and newer)

When two wrenches appear on your Mercedes-Benz model's control panel, it is time for Service B. After you've provided a Service B for your Mercedes-Benz automobile, it is time to repeat the cycle. That is, come in for an Inspection and Tire Rotation about 5,000 to 6,000 miles after the Service B. We will then see you again when it's time for the Service A, followed by another Inspection and tire rotation, then another Service B, and so on.

Following the Mercedes-Benz recommended service schedule for your automobile is the best method for keeping your Mercedes-Benz in top running condition and preventing unexpected repairs.

Here is what we do under Service B:

  • Synthetic Motor Oil Replacement.
  • Oil Filter Replacement.
  • All fluid level checks and corrections are dependent on factory-recommended service intervals for your vehicle's year and model.
  • Tire inflation check and correction.
  • Brake component inspection.
  • Brake fluid exchange.
  • Reset maintenance counter.
  • Cabin dust/combination filter replacement.
  • Adhere to all required elements listed by model year and specific model as indicated on the corresponding service sheet for Mercedes-Benz Maintenance Systems in the U.S.  

Why We Do Service B

During Service B, Certified Mercedes-Benz Technicians closely examine your automobile's engine components, using specialized equipment to be sure that all the mechanical, electronic, and computerized devices are functioning properly.

At this time, we also need to address your automobile's heating and cooling system. Over time, your engine coolant becomes contaminated, losing its ability to protect your engine from freezing in cold weather conditions and overheating in hot conditions. Very expensive repairs could result from avoiding this required maintenance.

Next, we inspect your fuel lines and connectors for any damage or wear, and we check your fuel tank vapor vent system, hoses, and fuel tank supports. As we said above on Service A, it's important that you trust only a Mercedes-Benz Factory Trained and Certified Technician to perform these functions.
