Service Tips

Your Mercedes-Benz comes equipped with a Maintenance Service Indicator System that will warn you when to take your vehicle for service. It is imperative to adhere to the maintenance schedule to keep your vehicle in perfect running order. You can also find more maintenance and service information in your Mercedes Owner’s Manual.

Mercedes offers different types of maintenance services, the most important being the A and B Service. The A Service is after 10,000 miles, and the B Service after 20,000 miles, which involves a more detailed checkup.

Tire Tips

It is important to keep the tires on your vehicle in good condition and that they have the correct air pressure. Having your tires at the wrong air pressure can not only affect your alignment, but also the life of the tires, and your fuel consumption.

You also do not want to over-inflate the tires and should stick to the recommended tire pressure listed in your Mercedes Owner’s Manual. Make sure you are rotating the tires when you change the oil every 6,000 miles. It is also vital to check the wheel alignment to avoid uneven tread wear.

Exterior Tips

By regularly washing, shining, and waxing your Mercedes will not only keep your luxury vehicle looking brand new but will get rid of road dirt that can damages the paintwork over time.

You will also want to protect the paint from scratching and fading by having your vehicle regularly waxed and polished. You should also repair any paint chips and nicks before rust sets in and causes expensive repairs.

Interior Tips

You should try to keep the interior of your car dust free and treat the leather with leather conditioner. By using a good leather conditioner you can prevent the leather from drying out, cracking or tearing as well as keep it feeling soft and smooth. A fabric and carpet protector will safeguard your upholstery and carpets from stains.

Undercarriage Tips

Dust and grime are worse than you think and can cause blockages to the filters and other components and even affect the performance of your vehicle. Wash your car’s undercarriage regularly to minimize dust and grime under the hood and rust under the rest.

Fluid and Filter Tips

Remember to check the fluid levels monthly. The lifeblood of the engine is the oil, and it is imperative to top up the oil regularly and get a professional oil and filter change every 10,000 miles.

You will want to have a Mercedes technician replace the brake fluid every 20,000 miles and air filters at 40,000 miles. Check the coolant level regularly to prevent overheating. If you notice a drop in the coolant level, let a qualified Mercedes technician look to see what is causing the problem.
