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.

Proper care and maintenance of your Mercedes can keep it running for many rewarding years.

Skoda Service Melbourne: Luxury without the Price Tag

Skoda Service Melbourne: Luxury without the Price Tag

Do you need a Skoda Service team?


Skoda is an award-winning car brand and to keep it in top performance condition you need a top-notch Skoda Service team. The Volks Affair mechanics specialise in luxury German car brands – BMW, Mercedes, Audi, VW and Skoda. You may not think of Skoda as a luxury brand, but it certainly ticks all boxes for what you’d look for in a stylish and reliable car.


The Skoda Brand is on the Rise

Skoda, originally a Czech company, is now owned by VW and it is on a mission to steadily increase production. In 2014, Skoda produced 1 million cars in the calendar year for the first time – their growth strategy now means that 1 million is the minimum production target every year. In 2017 the 20 millionth vehicle rolled off the production line. It was a Skoda Karoq.


Skoda Downunder

Skoda arrived in Australia in 2007. As Skoda says – they brought European luxury without the European price tag. Skoda is gaining popularity with Aussie’s who like the simple but smart design of Skoda. With plenty of awards under its belt, Skoda is proving to be a reliable family brand that suits most budgets.


Skoda is Innovative and Award-winning

Skoda produced an electric concept car with level 3 autonomy in 2017. It was the Vision E car and is planned for sale in 2020. Skoda aims to have an entirely electric line up by 2030.
