Top DIY Tips to Keep Your Mercedes-Benz in Optimal Condition
Whilst we can provide all your major and intermediate Mercedes service needs – here are some easy-care tips that will ensure your Mercedes-Benz stays in great condition for your driving pleasure (and for resale value)
1. Wash your car
To keep your paintwork in great condition, you should wash your car often. This keeps it free from road chemicals and dirt – this is especially necessary if you live in the ‘salty’ coastal areas.
2. Check your fluid levels
Check your coolant, oil and window washing fluids. To check oil, you should ensure your engine has been off for at least 5 minutes.
3. Report any new or unusual sounds to your mechanic
If your car feels or sounds different, let us know. It’s best to consult with a mechanic as soon as possible to prevent any potential further damage.
4. Inspect your tyres
Fill your tyres to the correct setting and keep an eye on the wear and tear. For optimal driving, your tyres should be rotated regularly to ensure even wear.
5. Park in a garage
Whenever possible choose covered parking to protect your car from the elements. Especially in Melbourne’s changeable climate – a sunny day may end in hail, rain and wind.
