You want your Mercedes-Benz 300SL to last as long as possible. With the right maintenance at the right time, your 300SL could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark.

Just follow your 1993 Mercedes-Benz 300SL maintenance schedule!

Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your 300SL running for longer, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 1993 Mercedes-Benz 300SL problems later.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Mercedes-Benz 300SL Running Newer, Longer

Bring your 1993 Mercedes-Benz 300SL to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services 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 300SL's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Could your 1993 Mercedes-Benz 300SL be ready for a new battery? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your Mercedes-Benz 300SL battery. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your 300SL stranded. Your Mercedes-Benz 300SL won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

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 1993 Mercedes-Benz 300SL engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1993 300SL. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1993 Mercedes-Benz 300SL.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Mercedes-Benz 300SL? Check your car for pothole damage!

Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When does my Mercedes-Benz 300SL need high mileage oil? If your Mercedes-Benz 300SL has ticked past 75,000 miles, consider switching to high mileage oil at your next oil change to give your engine what it needs to go another 75,000 (or more!). High mileage oil: make it a high priority!
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Mercedes-Benz? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Mercedes-Benz 300SL in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
