Properly Maintaining your Mercedes-Benz

You hear Mercedes-Benz employees use the phrase, “The very best or nothing” as their slogan, just like the Gottlieb Daimler, the company’s co-founder did back in the 1800s.  With the proper maintenance, your Mercedes-Benz will keep on operating as for many years ahead.

It is critical to be conscious of your Mercedes-Benz when it gives you signs that may indicate there is something not going right with it.  It is always best to be on top of the maintenance and repairs rather than procrastinating because it might end up costing a fortune down the road.  At Midtown Autoworks of Sacramento, our certified mechanics will be to check for any issues or problems right away.  Our goal is to keep your Mercedes running up to par!

Most importantly, check and change the motor oil as suggested in your owner’s manual.  The new Mercedes-Benz engines uses synthetic oil that will tend to last longer, but regardless it should be changed in accordance to the maintenance schedule.

It is important to pay attention to your tires and make sure they are properly inflated at all times.  It is recommended to check the air pressure at least once a month to make sure the tires are filled with the adequate amount of air pressure.  Plus according to the maintenance schedule, it is recommended to rotate the tires to keep them wearing evenly.

Check and make sure to maintain the right amount of brake fluid levels.  Check to ensure that your brake fluid reservoir is full, and it is recommended to replace the fluid every 20,000 miles or every two years, whichever comes first.

It is important to change the transmission oil and filter in accordance with the maintenance schedule.  For the majority of Mercedes-Benz models, the maintenance schedule calls for changing the transmission oil and filter every single 40,000 miles or every four years, whichever comes first.  To confirm for your particular model, check your owner’s manual to make sure you are aware of when to change them.

Check the coolant level to help avoid your engine from overheating, which can possibly lead to serious problems.  When there is too much heat, it can scorch the transmission oil, which is the main result of transmission failure.  If the level is low, it needs to be investigated as to why it is low because it isn’t supposed to be.
