Here’s Why 1989 Mercedes-Benz 300E Scheduled Maintenance Matters

Take care of your Mercedes-Benz 300E and it'll take care of you. With proactive maintenance, your 300E could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine 300E maintenance. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1989 Mercedes-Benz 300E!

Mercedes-Benz knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your 300E perform better, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1989 Mercedes-Benz 300E problems in the future.

Overview of Essential Mercedes-Benz 300E Maintenance Needs

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1989 Mercedes-Benz 300E and our technicians will jump right in 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. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your 300E's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1989 Mercedes-Benz 300E. 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). Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your 300E may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Mercedes-Benz 300E battery. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Mercedes-Benz 300E could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1989 Mercedes-Benz 300E engine. To learn how often Mercedes-Benz recommends you have the oil changed in your 1989 300E, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1989 Mercedes-Benz 300E.

Maintaining your Mercedes-Benz 300E steering and suspension system can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, perform Mercedes-Benz 300E suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Mercedes-Benz 300E's steering system with regular maintenance.

Without routine Mercedes-Benz 300E maintenance, you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally.

At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your Mercedes-Benz 300E engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning.
