Overview of Essential Mercedes-Benz 260E Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1989 Mercedes-Benz 260E for factory-recommended routine maintenance and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your 260E’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1989 Mercedes-Benz 260E? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years.

Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Mercedes-Benz 260E battery, and so can frequent short drives.

Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your 260E stranded. Your Mercedes-Benz 260E won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.
