Your Mercedes is a finely-tuned, luxury automobile. If you want to keep it in perfect driving condition, you’ll need to take it in for regular Mercedes maintenance services. Even if you don’t drive your car regularly, it still needs attention from a properly trained Mercedes technician so it will perform at its best.
How to Keep your Mercedes in Perfect Driving Condition
- Follow the Service Schedule in the Owner’s Manual
Read your owner’s manual carefully and follow it to the letter. The manufacturer has spent time and resources determining the best way to keep its products performing at their best.
If you have owned a Mercedes previously, your current vehicle won’t necessarily have the same service schedule as your old one. Each model is different and will have its own schedule. Be sure to read your manual each time you buy a new car.
- Check for Technical Service Bulletins on your Car
Make a point of checking online to see if there are any Technical Service Bulletins issued for your car’s model. (You can set up a Google alert for this, so you will automatically receive the information sent in your e-mail account.) This alert will advise you if there are any recalls on your car.
- Check the Oil Regularly
In between oil changes, check the oil level once or twice to ensure that it is within the recommended levels for your vehicle model. If the oil is getting low, top it up with the type recommended in your owner’s manual.
- Check Tire Pressure When Seasons Change
When temperatures increase or decrease dramatically, tire pressure increases and decreases significantly as well. Your vehicle may be equipped with a tire gauge sensor in the dashboard, but you should also check your tires manually with a tire pressure gauge. It only takes a few minutes to confirm that your tires are inflated to the correct level.
Following these tips will help ensure that your Mercedes is operating properly. The same Mercedes maintenance tips will be helpful to owners of BMW, Mini, Volkswagen, and Audi vehicles. If you run into any problems with your vehicle, contact Reinhardt’s German Auto Haus. Our experienced technicians will get you back on the road quickly.
