Regular Maintenance Is Very Important!

Most Mercedes-Benz owners are aware that regular Mercedes Benz Maintenance is much cheaper than paying for costly repairs later. A lot of vehicle maintenance is fairly obvious, but there are important aspects to Mercedes-Benz maintenance that are often overlooked because there are no visual or aural reminders that there may be a problem. Here are a few tips that should be included as part of your regular car maintenance routine.

Wash the underside of your vehicle.

Unless a Mercedes-Benz owner does their own repairs, most people will never see the underside of their vehicle. However, many cities with a snowy climate use salt to de-ice their roads, resulting in a slushy mixture that ends up on the undercarriage of your Mercedes-Benz. This mixture can eat away at important mechanical and structural components of your vehicle. During the winter months make sure you clean the undercarriage at least once a month, and one final time when the season is over to ensure the last of the mixture is removed.

Check your ignition system.

The ignition system on your Mercedes-Benz is a good indicator of how your car is performing. Take your Mercedes-Benz into your dealership and have them check the system, especially the spark plugs, every 30,000 miles. Spark plugs should be replaced when necessary or at 100,000 miles. This system is easy to forget about as most people will never see their spark plugs, but they are equally important to maintain.

Replace your filters.

Again, your vehicle’s filters are something most owners will never see, but your Mercedes-Benz uses several for both oil and fuel. These filters are crucial for preventing debris and rust from entering the internal components of your engine. Filters should be checked every three thousand miles and replaced when they are clogged.

Track your mileage.

Perhaps the best gauge of how a Mercedes-Benz is performing is fuel efficiency. To track the fuel efficiency of a vehicle, record the amount of gas purchased each time the tank is refilled, and the mileage on the odometer. By doing this one can determine how many miles the vehicle is getting for every gallon of gasoline. Many newer vehicles will track this for you on an inboard computer system. If a big decline in fuel efficiency is noticed, bring the vehicle in for a check up as soon as possible.

Hope this helps!


Here's some hot news for car owners: Summer is the season for major car-battery problems.

Virtually everyone who's been through a harsh winter is familiar with the annoyance of a "dead" battery and the need for a jump start. So it may surprise many to know that it's heat, not cold, that shortens battery life.

According to the Car Care Council, the average life of a battery is 31/2 years-even shorter in warmer climates. That's because excessive heat and overcharging are the two main reasons for shortened battery life. Heat causes battery fluid to evaporate, which damages the internal structure of the battery. A malfunctioning component in the charging system, usually the voltage regulator, allows too high a charging rate. That's slow death for a battery. 

What the heck is a wheel alignment and why is it important for my car?

A Wheel alignment is the adjusting of the angles of your car's wheels relative to the ground to achieve maximum tire life. A properly aligned vehicle with good tires should drive straight along a level, straight road.
An alignment is recommended once a year for a couple of reasons:
1. There are various moving joints and rubber bushings in your vehicle's suspension system that wears very slowly over time. As these parts wear, the wheel's angles change and need to be re-adjusted to compensate. These parts should be routinely inspected and replaced if they are worn beyond a normal threshold.
2. Running through a good size pot hole or even hitting a curb can very well knock your car's alignment out of whack - ouch! I think we're all guilty of that!
It is also recommended to align your car when you install new tires; that way your new tires get a fresh start for the longest life possible! 
A Wheel alignment is often confused with wheel balancing. Both can affect the quality of your ride, but in different ways. If your wheels are out of balance, then you may feel a vibration at highway speeds through the steering wheel and/or the seat. If your alignment is out, it can cause premature tire wear, poor tracking and an off centered steering wheel.

Why is it important to have your battery checked before the winter months?

While the average automobile battery can last several years, drastic weather conditions harm the performance of your battery and increase the chance of battery failure. No automobile battery will last forever. With the proper type of battery and regular maintenance, you can avoid a dead battery during the cold winter months.
