Factory Scheduled Maintenance Important in Warmer Temperatures

As a Mercedes-Benz owner, you know that your vehicle has a somewhat strict, factory scheduled maintenance schedule. This is nice, in the beginning, as your first five years as a Mercedes-Benz owner are guaranteed with a free maintenance and repair schedule with your luxury vehicle. However, when the five years is up, factory maintenance and repair tends to get a little more expensive.

At CK Auto Exclusive we perform ALL factory scheduled maintenances, electronic system repair, computer diagnostics, A/C service and repair, engine and transmission rebuilding, clutches, drive train, brakes, suspension, and more.

If you want to keep your Mercedes-Benz running properly you simply cannot skip your factory scheduled maintenance. Understandably, this to-do item can be easily overlooked, but greater problems can arise from not keeping up with your Mercedes maintenance schedule. Depending on the year, make and model of your vehicle, a factory scheduled maintenance is more than just an overview of your car, it is a complete re-haul of the engine, the fluids, tires and inner most workings of the computer diagnostics system performed by a factory certified Mercedes repair shop, or the Mercedes-Benz dealership themselves.

Avoiding your scheduled maintenance for your Mercedes-Benz does not mean problems are not occurring underneath the hood, whether your luxury vehicle is running fine or has a few hiccups here and there. It is better to address Mercedes repair issues than putting them off until, in some cases, it may be too late.

Summer heat can affect your car in many ways. Here are a few examples:

  1. Tire pressure. Did you know that operating your Mercedes-Benz in higher temperatures during your everyday commute can easily blow out your tire? Hot tires + hot freeway pavement = worn tread.
  2. Battery voltage. Cold weather, sure, but warm weather? YES. Warm weather can shorten your battery's lifespan, especially if the terminals are already dirty or are beginning to corrode.
  3. Liquids. The outside heat does a number on ALL the liquids under the hood. Did you know that gas evaporates faster in warmer temperatures than in cooler temperatures? Park in the shade if you can and check each one of your fluids before taking off for work or that next road trip.

These are a few helpful tips for operating your Mercedes in this Santa Rosa heat. Visit our blog for more helpful information on Mercedes-Benz auto repair and Mercedes-Benz maintenance tips.
