Top 5 Ways to Prepare Your Mercedes-Benz for Fall
Top 5 Ways to Prepare Your Mercedes-Benz for Fall – Overview
The weather is starting to change again, and while that means you won’t have to contend with a baking-hot vehicle interior for much longer, it also means your vehicle has a new environment to engage with. So, in addition to stocking your Mercedes-Benz with an extra jacket, be sure to follow these five ways to make sure your Mercedes-Benz vehicle is prepared for the changing of the seasons.
Keep Up With Routine Maintenance
Depending on how often you drive your Mercedes-Benz vehicle and the suggested service interval for your specific vehicle, now might be the time to do some routine maintenance like an oil change and tire rotation. Be sure to check to see if your vehicle is due for other services, too, such as a coolant or brake fluid flush. If you’re not sure or if you’d like a certified technician to look over your vehicle, you can always visit us at Mercedes-Benz of Orland Park today to inspect your vehicle and verify it’s ready to take on the fall.
Check Your Heat
You probably haven’t touched the heat in your car all summer long, and with cooler temperatures rapidly approaching, now would be a good time to make sure everything is still in working order. If your heat isn’t performing as it should, it could indicate a larger issue such as low coolant level or poor coolant circulation, both of which could ultimately lead to bigger issues with your engine. We at Mercedes-Benz of Orland Park would be happy to test your vehicle’s HVAC system, so book an appointment with our service department today!
Check Your Battery
Colder temperatures naturally make batteries less performative, and that’s typically not a problem. Your Mercedes-Benz is designed with that in mind and can work perfectly in a great variety of temperatures. But, if your battery is beginning to go bad, colder temperatures can exacerbate the issue and end up leaving you stranded if you’re not careful. Be sure to have your battery and charging system checked by a certified technician to ensure your Mercedes-Benz is prepared to take on any of the weather that’s ahead. Schedule a service appointment today by giving us a call or booking online today!
Check Your Tires
As the ambient temperature drops, so can the air pressure in your tires. Plus, if you haven’t checked your tire pressure in a while, now is a good time to do so. Proper tire pressure is vital to ensuring proper treadwear and optimal performance, so verify that your tire pressure is at the recommended pressure. You should also check the life of your tread. Tires that are worn will have a harder time gripping the road and will result in longer stopping distances and poor handling, especially as the air gets cooler. Have your tires and tire pressure checked at Mercedes-Benz of Orland Park today!
Check Your Lights
It goes without saying your Mercedes-Benz’s lights each serve an essential function, so check to make sure your lights are all in working order. Don’t forget to check everything from your turn signal lights to your brake lights and everything in between.
No matter what your vehicle needs, our certified technicians are happy to help you keep your vehicle in top condition. Your Mercedes-Benz is an incredibly reliable vehicle, and it’s simply our goal to keep it that way so it can serve you as a dependable vehicle for miles to come.
