Mercedes-Benz Maintenance During WinterWinter is here! The warm breezy driving during the summer and spring are a thing of the past for this year, now it is time to make sure that your Mercedes-Benz is prepared for the harshest season. There are several very important components you need to have inspected at an auto repair shop, where you can get the objective opinion of a mechanic.
Car battery condition
Let us start off with your Mercedes-Benz’s battery. Due to the harsh conditions during the winter your vehicle’s battery might betray you. When the weather is cold it affects the battery negatively. This is why it is a good idea to have a mechanic inspect it. If he does find a reason to worry, you might need to have it replaced. You don’t want it dying on you while you are on the road - take precautionary measures on time.
Condition of the tires
When it comes to the condition of the tires of your Mercedes, there are two things that you should be looking out for. One of them is if there is sufficient tread to not only last throughout the winter, but also to have a good grip on the road. The second thing is if your vehicle is equipped with winter tires, you might not be driving in a lot of snow, but winter tires are also better performing in cold weather, not only snow and ice. If you cannot determine if the tread is enough, a car mechanic would be able to, he would be able to replace your old tires with winter ones as well.
Coolant (Antifreeze) Condition
You need the right type of Antifreeze for your Mercedes-Benz, and the appropriate ratio of it combined with water(if needed). Also, a mechanic would be able to examine the system altogether and assess if everything is alright.
Your Mercedes-Benz is a big investment, don’t let it go to waste – take proper care of it this winter!
