Mercedes-Benz Oil Change
One of the most valuable things you can do to preserve your Mercedes-Benz investment is regular oil and filter changes.

Preventive maintenance services for your car are your choice, but following the manufacturer’s recommendations found in your owner’s manual are a good idea, and we’re glad to help you, as well. True to its name, a synthetic blend combines the two so that it offers solid performance at a more reasonable price. It is highly recommended that you use full synthetic in your Mercedes-Benz. Also, by way of scheduling your service visit, you choose when to change your motor oil, but it’s important not to go too long between oil changes. While most manufacturers recommend fresh lubricant at around 5,000-7,000 miles, the Mercedes-Benz company suggests oil be changed every 10,000 miles.
Why It Matters
Although it may seem okay to skip routine maintenance or prolong oil and filter changes, failing to adhere to a service schedule is not a good idea. If you go too long between changes, the oil can lose some of its essential properties. It begins to break down and cannot absorb heat as well. Additionally, its viscosity decreases, meaning that it cannot coat and cling to the parts as well as it should. Finally, if it is already dirty and degraded, it cannot hold debris away from the metal components. This leads to corrosion and sludge build-up. Sludge is the dark gel-like substance that forms in your engine when old oil and unsuspended dirt combine. It can even sometimes be seen lurking around the exterior of your engine, indicating that you likely have a significant amount of sludge inside. Your adored Mercedes-Benz is destined to become a classic. The brand is known to last a long time, hold value better than some other makes, and never go out of style. If you don’t change the oil as you should, you could be cutting your car’s life–and your wallet–short. The few dollars you think you’re saving may cost you a lot in the long run. Therefore, make your final car maintenance choice. If you’re in the Greensboro/Winston-Salem/High Point vicinity, bring your Mercedes-Benz to Carmine’s Import Service in Kernersville, North Carolina for your next oil change.
