What is Mercedes A2 service?

Here Service A2 means there are two different lists services for “A” and “2”.

The Mercedes A2 service combines the regular A service (oil change, fluid checks, etc.) with two additional perks:

  • Brake fluid replacement: Ensures optimal braking performance and safety.
  • Sunroof cleaning and lubrication (if applicable): Keeps your sunroof functioning smoothly and quietly.

Think of it as a regular A service with a focus on brake and sunroof maintenance.

Mercedes A2 Service Cost

As you already know, certain Mercedes services involve replacements, which can be pricier compared to inspection-only requirements. 

In such cases, many Mercedes owners with some mechanical know-how opt for a do-it-yourself approach to save on costs. When you choose professional mechanics or dealerships, the charges typically include the price of replacement parts, labor costs, and inspection fees. 

However, with a DIY approach, you’ll only incur the cost of the replacement parts. To give you a rough estimate, a Mercedes A2 service from a dealership might cost you $300 to $400. The fact is, these costs will surely vary significantly based on your location, the type of mechanic or dealer, and even your car model. 

My advice is to obtain quotes from multiple nearby dealerships and select the one that offers the best service. And, if you possess some mechanical knowledge, go for the DIY.
