Overview of Essential Mercedes-Benz 300CE Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1989 Mercedes-Benz 300CE for factory-recommended routine maintenance and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your 300CE. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1989 Mercedes-Benz 300CE. If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and five years). Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Mercedes-Benz 300CE battery, and so can frequent short drives.

Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your 300CE stranded. Your Mercedes-Benz 300CE could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1989 Mercedes-Benz 300CE running newer, longer. See Mercedes-Benz's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1989 300CE in the chart at the top of this page.
