These are codes generated by the Acura Maintenance Minder system, and are two of the most common services recommended by Acura for their vehicles. While both services are important, they differ in terms of the components that are checked and replaced.

Acura A1 Service vs. B1 Service
Acura A1 Service
The Acura A1 Service is the most basic service, and simply includes an oil change and a tire rotation. The A1 Service is designed to be a quick service that can be done annually. Regular services like the A1 help your Acura operating at its best and to catch any potential issues early on. This service is to be performed annually, regardless of mileage. That said, if mileage is high (10,000 or more) the system may suggest an earlier service.
Acura B1 Service
The Acura B1 Service is similar to the A1 Service, however this now includes an oil change and filter replacement, tire rotation, a brake inspection all around, parking brake adjustment (as needed), and a comprehensive inspection of the vehicle. This service is to be completed every other year, or if mileage is high (20,000 or more since last B1 service).
Overall, the main difference between the Acura A1 Service and Acura B1 Service is that the B1 Service includes additional checks and replacements, such as the oil filter and a comprehensive vehicle inspection. These services are crucial to the long-term health of your Acura and can help prevent more costly repairs down the line.
