Maintaining Your Mercedes
Just as a child needs to know the alphabet in order to learn to read and write, you'll find it helpful to know the ABC's of the service schedule to keep your Mercedes-Benz performing optimally. Why does it matter? A recent AAA study revealed that even though a lack of preventive maintenance causes many vehicle breakdowns, 35% of car owners skip or put off factory recommended preventive maintenance services. Since you likely purchased your Mercedes due in part to its reputation for longevity, you have an obvious interest in following the recommended maintenance schedule that will increase your car's longevity. Therefore, Services A and B are on your horizon. For award-winning assistance from certified technicians in following the service protocol, bring your auto to Luxur Automotive in Plano, Texas.
Mercedes Service A
Performed after 10,000 miles or a year of driving (whichever comes first), Service A addresses basic preventive maintenance needs. These include an oil and filter change using synthetic motor oil, tire air pressure checks (and adjustment of the inflation if necessary), a check of all fluid levels (topping off as needed), and brake inspection. A technician will then reset the maintenance counter. (Note: This schedule of service points applies to year models 2009 and newer under normal driving conditions. Please consult your owner's manual and/or technician regarding older models or other circumstances.)
Mercedes Service B
After 20,000 miles, your Mercedes-Benz will need Service B. This visit includes oil (synthetic) and filter change, brake inspection and brake fluid change, cabin dust/combination filter change, a check and top-off of all fluids, and tire air pressure check (and reinflation if necessary). As with Service A, the maintenance counter is reset. (Note: The year model rule of thumb applies as described in Service A.
Mercedes Service C
Okay, there's not really a factory recommended Service C, but there is a third element to a great maintenance plan for your car. Follow Schedule A, attend to Schedule B, and bring your Mercedes-Benz toLuxur Automotive in Plano, Texas, where we have experience in helping our neighbors maintain their vehicles. When you follow the suggested preventive maintenance plan, your luxurious German auto has the potential to last a long time. It's not uncommon for a well-cared-for Mercedes to travel more than 200,000 miles. In fact, the manufacturer provides a Star and Laurel Badge and certificate to all owners when they reach the Classic High Mileage mark. These recognitions are made at the following mileage achievements: 155,000; 310,000; 466,000; 621,000; and 1,000,000.
