The potential for damage to your vehicle from rodents is a real threat. We have seen a significant rise in cases and highly recommend that you evaluate your risk. Your Mercedes-Benz, Sprinter and SMART car have miles of wires and communication cables. These wires are the primary target for rodents to chew on. Overnight a rodent can cause thousands of dollars in damage.
Your home air filter has been working overtime due to the recent wildfires. Without your home HVAC system and a high-quality filter, there could be side effects to the poor quality air. You may not have thought twice about the air filtration system in your car. Mercedes-Benz vehicles have an excellent HVAC system that is working hard to keep you safe and comfortable. It may be time to address the filter element and have it replaced at your next service.
As a responsible Mercedes-Benz owner, you’re probably careful about following your vehicle’s recommended maintenance schedule to ensure that your engine continues to deliver the reliable service and smooth ride you’re accustomed to. You may be less diligent about having your windshield, wiper blades and tires evaluated regularly. Like many drivers, you may assume that because these parts have no complicated electronics and are relatively low-tech compared to other components in your Mercedes-Benz, they don’t need to be evaluated regularly. The truth is, these parts can and do fail. That’s why you should check your Mercedes-Benz tires and windshields regularly.
If you’re like most Americans, your car represents one of the biggest investments you’ll make. It also is a physical representation of your style, status and taste. Do you want to take care of your investment so it lasts and provides reliable service? When others see your car, you want their impression to be, “That’s a nice vehicle; its owner clearly takes care of it.” If those are your car-ownership goals, there are two important words you should embrace: regular maintenance. A surprising number of people don’t understand how critical maintenance is for extending the life of your car. According to the Car Care Council, which sponsors regular vehicle inspection events, 84 percent of vehicles evaluated need maintenance.

That’s precisely why preventative maintenance is important for the unpredictable California seasons. It’s best to address your vehicle maintenance needs before the inclement weather sets in.
Rain, drizzle and fog are all just part of living in beautiful Monterey County. While you may prefer to avoid venturing out onto the roads during wet weather, that’s not always practical. You may not be able to circumvent the slick roads, but you can and should learn to navigate them safely.
When you fill up your car at the gas pump, you’ve got a decision to make. Should you opt for regular gasoline and save, at most, a few dollars? Or should you spring for the pricier “premium” gas? If you drive a Mercedes-Benz, you drive a high-end performance vehicle. Your Mercedes represents a significant investment. Why would you risk sacrificing its performance or, worse yet, damaging its engine just to save a few dollars? Read on to learn why luxury car manufacturers require premium gas and why you should heed that requirement.
If you’re ready to trade in your car for a new model, you’ve got an excellent opportunity to make a tangible difference in the lives of California high school students.
