In addition to the service, we recommend that you check the following items regularly (for example: Bi weekly, when refueling, or before any long journey):

Engine oil level – Depending on the type of Mercedes Benz you have and how it is equipped, check the engine oil level using the oil level dipstick or the it will be displayed on the dash on the control system via the multifunction steering wheel/display.

Coolant Level

– Never remove the coolant reservoir cap when the engine is hot. Your coolant should not have to be filled unless you have a seeping hose or water coolant leak.

Brake fluid level – If brake fluid has to be added, see us to determine the cause, e.g. leaks or worn brake pads.

Windshield washing system – Add washer fluid mixed with windshield washer solvent/concentrate, test function and check wiper blades. If the washer fluid level drops below the minimum level, the washer fluid level warning light appears.

Lighting system – Check all running lights.

Tire condition and pressures – A visual check of your tire wear should be done often. Mercedes Benz "Tire Pressure Monitor" system tracks your vehicle’s tire pressures and can warn you of pressure loss. At German Car Depot we calibrate your TPM during every oil change service.
