How much to Expect a Mercedes B Service to Cost?
The cost for a Mercedes B Service ranges more widely than the cost for an A Service. You can expect to pay anywhere from $380 to more than $700 depending largely on the model and model year of your car, as well as the necessity of replacement parts. The service includes a variety of maintenance checks and replacements, and is more in-depth than the A Service due to the mileage and wear and tear on the vehicle. Both services are necessary to get the most out of your vehicle and prevent additional repairs.
At bare minimum, the average Mercedes B Service includes fluid checks and refills, motor oil replacement, oil filter replacement, cabin filter replacements, brake fluid exchange, brake inspection, maintenance counter reset, and any other required checks based on the model and model year of your vehicle. The labor costs alone can come in anywhere from $220-$280, while the cost of parts ranges from $100 all the way up to $450. Unlike the Service A, this service is more in depth and often involves some replacements as you put more miles and greater wear and tear on the car.
You’ll want to have your first B Service one year after your first A Service, or when your car reaches 20,000 miles. After the first service, it’s recommended that you receive the B Service every 2 years or 20,000 miles, or as recommended by your service provider. However, remember that the dealership tends to charge steeper prices than an independent auto repair shop, and they may stretch out your service appointments. Ultimately the dealership’s goal is to sell more cars, not maintain cars that have already been purchased. Which doesn’t mean they don’t do good work — they do excellent work — but it’s worth bearing in mind.
When you work with an independent service provider, you can expect individualized service at a better price point. Mercedes-Benz cars are luxury vehicles that require a certain amount of expertise, so you shouldn’t take them just anywhere. Shop around for a garage with technicians who’ve been trained in these services and work with Mercedes vehicles specifically.
