All automobiles thrive when they are regularly maintained. A vehicle that receives routine fluid top-offs, oil changes and adjustments will continue to provide you with dedicated service for many years.
If you’re a Mercedes-Benz owner, you’ve likely heard of Mercedes service A, a 10,000 mile Mercedes inspection offered by trained Mercedes mechanics designed to inspect and address certain components in your car. Burdi Motorworks, an independent Mercedes-Benz repair facility in Chicago, offers both Service A and Service B inspections.
Let’s take a look at Service A to learn more about what it entails and how Burdi Motorworks can help keep your car running in great shape.
Mercedes A Service: A Brief Overview
When your Mercedes-Benz reaches the 10,000-mile mark, it qualifies for its first Service A inspection. Your dashboard may have already let you know about the need for this. Bring your car in to Burdi Motorworks, and we’ll start with a basic oil change, flushing out the old fluid and replacing it with a new product while swapping in a new filter.
Next, a multi-point inspection will follow. We will access a guideline that instructs us which parts in particular to look at relative to the model you own, including:
Windshield/head lamp wipers:
These will be tested for proper operation, and any lost fluids will be replaced.
Our technicians will have a look at these to make sure they are operating in the proper fashion.
Your seat belts will be tested to ensure your safety.
Brake pads and brake discs:
Our qualified Mercedes-Benz technicians will make sure your brake pads and discs are not worn down and in need of replacement.
Should you own a CLK, SLK or E-Class Mercedes-Benz, we will check your dust filter to learn whether it needs to be replaced.
Fluid level check and top off:
We will check any other fluid levels to find out whether they are in need of being topped off.
Tire pressure check and tire condition check:
We’ll make sure your tires — including your spare tires — are properly inflated and not too worn down.
FSS counter reset:
Your Mercedes-Benz is equipped with an FSS, or Flexible Service System counter. This system alerts you to necessary Service A and Service B intervals. We’ll reset this so it is properly calibrated to let you know when to schedule your next Service A or Service B appointment.
Should our technicians find anything concerning during your Service A appointment, we’ll be sure to let you know and walk you through any repairs we recommend.
