You're probably aware that regular maintenance is crucial for a healthy vehicle. We've listed several ways you can extend the life of your vehicle below. Here are a few tips on how you can be proactive in caring for your vehicle throughout the year.

Wash & wax your vehicle regularly.

Not only will washing and waxing maintain your luxury vehicle's beautiful appearance, but it will also keep the exterior protected.

Don't forget the interior.

Maintaining the condition of your vehicle's cabin is also important. Vacuum and remove any stains when needed. Have leather seats? Use a leather cleaner and protectant to keep them in the best shape possible. To clean upholstery, you can use upholstery cleaners and fabric protectants.

Keep an eye on your tires.

You can't always avoid a flat tire, but paying attention to your tires' condition can help ensure a safe and smooth ride. Inspect your tires' tread, make sure that you maintain the correct tire pressure and don't forget to get your tires rotated regularly to avoid uneven wear.

Fill up with care.

Not only should you only use quality gasoline when filling up your vehicle, but you will also want to avoid filling up when the fuel truck is there. Sediment may be stirred up while the gas tanks are being filled, resulting in clogged fuel filters and fuel injectors. This can damage your car and affect performance.

Keep up with oil changes.

Regular oil changes also help maintain your vehicle's long-term health. Consult your vehicle's owner's manual to find out when you should have your vehicle's oil changed.

Change the filters.

These include the oil filter, fuel filter, transmission filter, and air filter. To find out when you should replace your vehicle's filters, check your owner's manual.

Repair damage to your windshield as soon as possible.

It may not seem like a major issue at first, but putting off or ignoring a chip in your windshield can cause a larger crack to form, resulting in the replacement of the windshield.

Use genuine OEM parts.

When you need to replace a part in your vehicle, be sure to only use genuine parts that were designed specifically for your Mercedes-Benz model for optimal performance. If you want to replace the part yourself, place an order today — or our technicians are happy to replace it for you.

Make sure fluids are at the correct level.

Your owner's manual can tell you how often you should check your vehicle's fluid levels, and you can always ask one of our service technicians.

These are just a few of the ways you can keep your vehicle healthy and performing at its best. We're always here to help, so if you have any questions about your model's maintenance needs, don't hesitate to contact a member of our team or stop by our dealership at 1705 Boggs Road, Duluth, GA 30096.
