Real-Talk About Your New (or old) Mercedes
CK Auto Exclusive is a successful and trusted Mercedes-Benz mechanic and repair shop because of how we treat our customers and their cars. There’s a lot of things that dealerships, shops, and even third-party or private sellers don’t tell you what to expect with your new luxury car, but we operate better on the plane of transparency.
Let’s get one thing cleared up, Mercedes-Benz cars ARE affordable. Yes, they really, truly, are. Buying a new or used Mercedes-Benz luxury vehicle should be a dream realized, not a luxury that seems out of reach. There’s a sort of stigma that comes from owning a luxury car – but having a Mercedes-Benz mechanic that specializes in new model Mercedes cars is your first step into understanding your new position. Because yes, you have changed statuses, to some.
Owning a Mercedes-Benz is affordable, repeat, but owning one makes the world around you think you’re a millionaire. And maybe you are! But, if you’re not, if you just have an affinity for the brand like we do, we want to share our Mercedes-Benz knowledge.
Yes, Mercedes-Benz cars depreciate greatly, so when buying a newer model, take-a-peek at third-party sellers (check out Craigslist) and keep your eye out for local deals on Mercedes-Benz. Taking on the responsibility of caring for a luxury vehicle is also something you should consider. Although you do not have to change the oil as often as you would have to in an economy car, most repair shops do not carry the type of oil your Mercedes needs, so you need to take it to a shop that specializes in Mercedes-Benz repair and maintenance.
Parts for Mercedes-Benz do tend to be a bit more expensive, but keeping up with your Mercedes-Benz maintenance schedule will make repairs few and far between. They are luxury vehicles, sure, but they are also built to last. Instead of changing your oil every 3,000 miles, it’s every 10,000 – 20,000. Road trips because deluxe journeys, and you can count on our car being a reliable vehicle for travel.
Do you have specific questions about your Mercedes? Maybe you’ve been an owner for a long time, or you’re looking to purchase, but either way, give us a call. We’d love to answer any pressing questions you may have.
