Factory-recommended maintenance checks on Mercedes vehicles come in all shapes and sizes, and often they’re called for more or less frequently than necessary. At Turning Wrenches, we know that, while a manufacturer may call for maintenance every 10,000- 20,000 miles, more frequent maintenance checks on your vehicle’s most common components can enable you to get better performance from your Mercedes and save you money in the long run.
Top Maintenance Issues for Mercedes Vehicles
Brakes: Mercedes recommends brake fluid changes every two years or 20,000 miles. That may be true for most people, but what if your brake line is leaking? At Turning Wrenches, we believe an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of foolishness, so we recommend having your brake system looked at every time you come in. In fact, we include it in our standard inspections. After all, faulty brakes can mean the difference between a fender-bender and a life-threatening emergency. Feel free to contact us if you have questions about your brake system.
Oil Service: While we understand that most factory-recommended oil changes are called for every 10,000 miles, at Turning Wrenches, we know an oil change every 5,000 miles or every six months can make a world of difference in the wear and tear of your engine and your vehicle’s performance. Contact us regarding your vehicle’s recommended oil maintenance.
Check Engine Light: Check Engine Lights can be the trickiest maintenance issues of all because your Check Engine Light can be an indicator of everything from a loose gas cap to a worn sensor to a critical engine malfunction. That’s why it’s always best to have it checked right away. It could be something small, or it could be something important. Why take an unnecessary risk? Bring your Mercedes to Turning Wrenches in Louisville and let us take the guesswork out of your Check Engine Light message.
Tires: Tires come with several factory recommendations for regular rotation and air pressure checks. At Turning Wrenches, we’ll check your tires every time you come in. That way you can be sure they have the proper air pressure and are wearing evenly. Faulty wear and tear on your tires could be a symptom of a larger problem. Let the expert auto mechanics at Turning Wrenches take care of your tire rotation and other tire related issues.
