Routine vehicle maintenance will keep your Mercedes-Benz car or SUV on the road for a long time; neglecting this maintenance, on the other hand, is the fastest route to the junkyard. But why is routine vehicle maintenance so important?
Changing your oil regularly not only keeps your Mercedes driving as efficiently as it was designed to, it also keeps your engine from overheating. Oil provides lubrication for dozens of crucial engine parts and removes dirt and sludge from the engine.
Your front and rear tires do not wear evenly. By rotating them every time you change your oil, you will ensure that, over time, they wear the same.
By servicing your vehicle at a dealership like Mercedes-Benz of Centerville, you can make sure a certified technician is inspecting more than just your oil filter and tires. Our technicians perform all kinds of maintenance and will recommend when you need each type done, so you don’t have to keep track of it on your own. Some of the components our mechanics inspect at each visit include the brakes, the battery, the engine, the transmission, the tire pressure, and the fluid levels. They’ll be able to tell you if it’s time for new tires, new windshield wipers, new spark plugs, or a new air filter.
For a team of technicians ready to keep your car on the road for all the miles ahead, come see us at Mercedes-Benz of Centerville.
