Mercedes Service B
Over time, Mercedes-Benz put more focus on cleaner air quality and extended services. They designed the MBMS (Mercedes Benz Maintenance System). This advanced system created the on dash oil readings. It alerts owners to when maintenance is needed. Depending on the specific warning from the vehicle determines if it is time for a particular scheduled maintenance. Regardless of the year, model or on board service system, you do not want to ignore the notification. Routine maintenance and Mercedes repair extends the life of your investment.
Scheduled maintenance, depending upon the Mercedes-Benz year and model, will generally require alternating A and B services at around 10,000 miles for the life of the auto. In the latest models these services are not called A and B. Dealer Service Alternative can perform these services and keep your auto running like new.
Your Mercedes Benz will eventually require what is typically referred to as Service B. This is part of your vehicle’s regular scheduled maintenance. Often owners are not quite sure exactly what this service is and what it entails. Your luxury German automobile should be serviced and repaired by our reputable certified technicians. At Dealer Service Alternative, we promise to provide our customers with “Dealer Quality Service at a Friendly Price”.
The Mercedes Benz 2nd required routine inspection is known as Flex B (service B) for most models. Some of the 2003 through 2004 models it is called the Flexible Service System Plus.
