Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1989 Mercedes-Benz 560SEL. Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Mercedes-Benz 560SEL battery.

Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your 560SEL stranded. Your Mercedes-Benz 560SEL 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 support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1989 Mercedes-Benz 560SEL running newer, longer.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Mercedes-Benz 560SEL? You know your Mercedes-Benz 560SEL better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving.
