What is the recommended maintenance schedule for the 2018 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT?
When it comes to your Mercedes-Benz AMG GT, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your AMG GT. But how do you know what service to get and when? It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine AMG GT maintenance. Just follow your 2018 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT 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; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your AMG GT running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2018 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT problems in the future.
Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2018 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT for factory-recommended routine maintenance and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your AMG GT’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.
Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2018 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT? 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). 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 battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! 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 AMG GT 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 help your 2018 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT'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. 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. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2018 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT?
