What is the recommended maintenance schedule for the 2018 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT S?

Here’s Why 2018 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT S Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your Mercedes-Benz AMG GT S to last as long as possible. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your AMG GT S. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. There's no need to guess when it's time to get AMG GT S maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Just follow your 2018 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT S maintenance schedule!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Mercedes-Benz, your vehicle manufacturer. 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; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your AMG GT S's life, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 2018 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT S problems.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Mercedes-Benz AMG GT S

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2018 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT S 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. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your AMG GT S's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Could your 2018 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT S be ready for a new battery? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Mercedes-Benz AMG GT S 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 AMG GT S stranded. Your Mercedes-Benz AMG GT S won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can help your 2018 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT S's engine run smoother. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2018 AMG GT S. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs.

Routine upkeep for your Mercedes-Benz AMG GT S suspension and steering system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, perform Mercedes-Benz AMG GT S 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 AMG GT S's steering system with regular maintenance.

Without routine Mercedes-Benz AMG GT S 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 AMG GT S engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning.
