The weather is getting warmer and the days longer. Many Mercedes Benz owner’s will be going on road trips this spring and summer so now is the perfect time to make sure that the Benz is ready for the ride. The winter can be stressful on a car and making sure that things are running great is part of the responsibility of making sure your car stays on the road for many years to come. Below are some Mercedes Benz maintenance and repair tips for spring.

Tires: One of the first maintenance checks you should have performed is on the tires of your Mercedes Benz. The winter is known for poor road conditions. It is not uncommon for people to damage a tire in a pothole. Potholes are often unnoticed by drivers in the winter because they fill up with water and become hard to spot when it is raining. Making sure your tires have acceptable tread and are properly inflated can increase your gas mileage and reduce the chance of a flat tire or blowout.

Brakes: The braking system is one of the most important components of your car. Proper Mercedes Benz maintenance includes having the braking system inspected regularly. This includes inspecting the pads, rotors, fluid levels, and hoses for signs or wear and replacing anything that needs it.

Electrical System: Mercedes Benz maintenance should be performed on the electrical system regularly. This includes checking the fuses, battery, belts, hoses, connections, and lights to make sure everything is functioning properly.

Fluids: In order to properly maintain your Mercedes and keep it in top running shape you must have the fluids checked regularly. This includes the oil, transmission fluid, brake fluid, cooling system, steering system, and even the windshield washer fluid.

Mercedes Benz has designed their vehicles to last a long time. Mercedes Benz maintenance is an important piece of protecting your investment. Regular maintenance of your Mercedes can help avoid the high cost of some repairs.
