How much does Mercedes Maintenance and Repairs Cost?
The price of maintaining your Mercedes Benz or any other high-performance automobile can vary considerably based upon the overall condition of it, its age and its specific model. Obviously a high-performance V8 or V12 engine calls for a higher-level of maintenance than a smaller engine type. No matter the model, year or engine type, it is vital that you consistently maintain your Mercedes Benz.
Generally, you should count on servicing your Mercedes Benz about every 10,000 miles or at least once per year. Typically, Mercedes Benz typically will alternate a minor service with a major service. The minor service typically known as an A-Service includes an oil service and total inspection, which usually costs right around $200. A major service typically known as a B-Service includes an A-Service plus filters and computer resets. The major service will commonly cost right about $400. Depending on your make and model Mercedes, additional services may be essential, which include transmission service every 40,000 miles, brake fluid flush and spark plugs changed around 100,000 miles.
Another common routine maintenance for the Mercedes is the brakes. It is vital to use the correct grade brake pads and brake rotors for your particular Mercedes. If you need to replace your brake pads, it is always best to stay away from low-cost aftermarket brakes that may not work appropriately in your Mercedes. An option for brakes are ceramic brake pads, they are a good alternative and have the benefit of reduced dust.
