MERCEDES SERVICE – WHAT DOES THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT MEAN?

MERCEDES SERVICE – WHAT DOES THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT MEAN?

I used to think that the check engine light was the proverbial “boy who cried wolf” of my dashboard. I didn’t know how to check my engine, and besides, my car seemed to be running just fine. Then I found myself stranded on the side of the interstate, late for work, waiting for a tow. It wasn’t until then that I wished I had, indeed, taken my car in to have the engine checked out. Lesson learned. The ominous glow on your Mercedes-Benz’s instrument cluster is trying to tell you something: your engine needs a check up. Regular maintenance is always important to ensure your luxury vehicle stays at peak-performance, but ignoring the blaring signals it sends out could result in major issues. The check engine light on your Mercedes is part of the onboard diagnostics (OBD) system built into your vehicle. When the check engine light goes on, it means that the vehicle has identified an issue in the OBD system ... read more

I sometimes feel that way when I am talking to someone that knows about cars, especially foreign cars.

HEATING AND AIR CONDITIONING – WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

Driving a Mercedes Benz is dream, but if your air conditioning malfunctions on a hot summer day in Florida, it can become a nightmare. Superior handling and luxury components are two of the primary factors that entice drivers to choose a car from the Mercedes line-up, but finding the right place to meet your Mercedes service and repair needs should be at the top of your priority list, within the first few months of ownership.
