As 2019 quickly approaches, you may be thinking about what goals you want to set for yourself. If you are struggling for some ideas, we have some New Year’s resolutions for your car that you should consider. If you’re ready to take a step in the right direction, contact us at Mercedes-Benz of Centerville in Centerville, OH for a service appointment.
Stay on Track with Maintenance
In your vehicle’s owner’s manual, you should find a recommended service schedule that lists how often you should get certain maintenance tasks done on your car. It usually includes things like oil changes, brake checks, fluid levels, and other important items. If you have yet to do any of these things, make a goal to get caught up this year. Schedule a service appointment with Mercedes-Benz of Centerville and we will get you back on track.
Pay Attention to Your Tires
Those four pieces of rubber are the only things keeping your car in contact with the road. To make sure they stay in good condition, you should inspect them once a month. This should include things like checking the tire pressure, looking for signs of uneven wear and checking the tread depth. You should also make sure your tires get the maintenance they need with routine rotations and balancing.
Clear Up any Warning Lights
If you see the same dashboard warning lights every morning, it is time to get them taken care of before those warnings turn into disasters.
Year after year, loved ones receive the potentially devastating diagnosis of breast cancer. This year, you can do your part in helping us fight breast cancer by attending the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk in Dayton, OH.

We’ve Raised Over $23,000 So Far
Mercedes-Benz Centerville and our auto group have joined in the fight against breast cancer for the past 8 years.

We currently hold the #1 spot for 2018 this year as well.
Businesses looking to cut costs in their day-to-day activities will soon find that Mercedes-Benz has a solution. The 2020 Mercedes-Benz eSprinter is an all-electric cargo van scheduled to make its official launch in 2019. While it may be an electric vehicle, the Mercedes-Benz eSprinter promises to offer incredible capability.
The Mercedes-Benz eSprinter is available with two battery options: a 41 kWh battery and a 55 kWh battery. The larger of the two batteries features a 93-mile range on a single charge.
The smaller of the two batteries can be charged in six hours. The 55 kWh battery has an eight-hour charge time. A DC fast charger can charge both batteries to 80 percent in as little as 45 minutes, making it ideal for daily business operations.
The Mercedes-Benz eSprinter features a maximum payload rating of 1,984 lbs. when equipped with the larger battery. The smaller battery, which weighs less, offers a maximum payload rating of 2,293 lbs.
Regardless of battery selection, the Mercedes-Benz eSprinter produces 113 hp and 221 lb-ft of torque. The cargo van has a top speed of 50 mph in the city in order to increase the maximum single-charge range. Outside of the city, the cargo van has a maximum speed of 75 mph.
While the 2020 Mercedes-Benz eSprinter isn’t arriving for at least another year, there are plenty of vehicles in stock to fulfill your needs. Feel free to contact us with any questions about our inventory or future cars.
For the past few months, high-end automakers have been announcing new luxury vehicle subscription services that give more customers access to their high-end, head-turning vehicles. Mercedes has just tossed its hat into the ring, announcing that it too will begin offering a subscription service, which includes rental and concierge services. The service will be called Mercedes-Benz Collection, and a pilot program will launch this June in Nashville and Philadelphia.
For a monthly fee, luxury vehicle subscription services give drivers a fun, smart way to experience and enjoy luxury vehicles. Mercedes has not announced any specifics about their service, in terms of price or which exact vehicles will be available. However, they did say that there would be “multiple subscription tiers,” with a “broad array of Mercedes-Benz offerings including SUV, sedan, coupe, cabriolet, roadster, and wagon models.”
You’ll essentially have access to Mercedes-Benz’s most popular and stylish vehicles whenever you’d like: just request a vehicle via an app and a Mercedes staff member will deliver the vehicle to you where and when you choose. The monthly fee will conveniently cover a range of necessary services, including maintenance, insurance, 24/7 roadside assistance, and give you unlimited mileage. With such a service, you won’t have to worry about the bothersome aspects of car ownership; rather, you’ll be fully taken care of and have access to the perfect vehicle whenever you need one.
We have no information yet about when or if this service is coming to Mercedes-Benz of Centerville. If it does, we’ll make sure you’re the first to know.
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.
