The engine is the heart of your Mercedes vehicle, and its maintenance is paramount to peak driving and handling performance. Mercedes’ transmission systems require flushing every 50,000 miles while also attending to the filter simultaneously. This is to prevent costly repairs down the road, including having to replace your entire transmission, which can otherwise begin to perform at less than peak levels after 70,000 to 90,000 miles of use. We recommend your Mercedes engine be serviced by one of our expert service technicians at least twice a year to ensure its health and longevity.

Remaining under the hood and also essential to your Mercedes’ driving and handling are the various fluids required to run your vehicle, including regular oil changes, power steering fluid, and your engine’s coolant system. Without regular refilling and replacing of these essential fluids, you are courting disaster, inviting a breakdown on the side of the road. Our certified mechanics recommend oil changes every two months or 5,000 miles, whichever comes first; coolant flushes and a cooling system service regularly, and power steering checks, including a flush of your vehicle’s power steering fluid every 50,000 miles.

Finally, and equally essential to performance, we discuss regular service to your Mercedes’ brakes and tires. Our expert service people recommend your brake fluid be replaced every two to three years, but we also recommend more frequent brake services, that include monitoring and cleaning your brake cushions to ensure your Mercedes the most efficient braking performance to keep you and your passengers safe. Equally important to safety are your Mercedes’ tires – we recommend tire rotations every six months, and regular monitoring of tire pressure to keep your Mercedes running at its best and most efficient.
