1. How Often Should You Change Your Oil?
You’ll want to stay on top of your oil repairs—after all, if you skip your service too often, you risk damaging your motor since nothing is in place to help lubricate the finer parts of your powertrain, resulting in otherwise unneeded trips to the service center.
As a rule of thumb, you’ll want to schedule a Mercedes-Benz oil change every 10,000 miles, as this range helps supply your engine with the optimal fluids for proper cooling while assisting in preventing excess friction.
2. Keep an Eye on Your Oil Levels
Even between your oil changes, you’ll want to keep an eye on your car’s oil levels. In some models, you’ll use the classic dipstick method (pop the hood, wipe the dipstick, re-insert, pull out, and check) while newer models let you know with your instrument cluster. If your oil levels are low, you’ll need to top off your fluid levels to help your ride remain smooth—and if your levels drop often, your vehicle could be experiencing issues that require urgent attention at our service center.
3. Pick Synthetic Oil
When it’s time for an oil change, you get two options: synthetic and conventional. However, all Mercedes-Benz vehicles, from the A-Class to the GLS-Class and everything in between, require a synthetic blend. Unlike conventional blends, this fluid helps your engine better resist oxidation while also providing more cooling for your motor, which helps you cruise at an exhilarating pace more often with fewer worries of overheating on the road.
4. Oil Change Is Part of Mercedes-Benz A & B Service
