When it comes to your Mercedes-Benz C240, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance.

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Mercedes-Benz, your vehicle manufacturer.

Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your C240 running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2004 Mercedes-Benz C240 problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Mercedes-Benz C240 Running Newer, Longer

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2004 Mercedes-Benz C240 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. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your C240’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2004 Mercedes-Benz C240? In general, car batteries only last three to five years.

Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your C240 stranded. Your Mercedes-Benz C240 won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.
