The Importance of Regular Servicing
You made an important investment when it came to choosing your vehicle, now its important to maintains its value. Optimum servicing of your vehicle is the best way to ensure you will be able to enjoy your car for a long time to come in addition to maintaining it's value should the day come when you decide to change it as a complete service record will help the car sell better.
The reliability and efficiency of your car can be affected in the absence of regular servicing. It doesn't matter if your car is 2 years old or 12 years old, with a regular servicing schedule existing and/or developing issues may go unnoticed. This can be the difference between a minor repair and an expensive fault. A regular service will also highlight any wear and tear on all major safety items such as brakes, steering, suspension and tyres.
Arguably the most important part of your car service is having your engine oil replaced. A recent survey found 25% of cars on the road had low or dirty oil or oil leaks. Failure to replace engine oil on a regular basis can result in a build up of sludge, which will prevent your engine from being sufficiently lubricated. This increase in friction will decrease the life of all the major components and could ultimately result in engine failure and a very expensive repair. It is also important to ensure that a good quality of oil is used, that is correct for the engine in your car.
Even if you haven't been driving your car and it has been lying idle for a period of time it is still important to get your vehicle serviced as sitting still for prolonged periods may cause issues to develop in the engine, as well as the fact that certain fluids, such as brake fluid, are required to be replaced after a certain period of non use.
When it comes time to service your vehicle we would recommend returning your vehicle to your Mercedes-Benz dealer so that you can be sure that you have a qualified factory-trained and experienced technician working on your vehicle.
