We make it easy by providing free brake checks to all of our customers so that we can help stop problems before they start. You can request a free brake check as a standalone service or in addition to work you're already having done on your Mercedes-Benz, like an oil change. However, if routine car care has slipped your mind for quite some time, you might want to pay attention and watch for the following brake issues.
Brake problems include unusual noises, pulsation or vibration in the steering wheel or pedal, a burning smell around the tires, a “lit” dashboard brake signal, or a sensation that things aren't like they used to be.
