Bring your 1998 Mercedes-Benz C280 to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1998 Mercedes-Benz C280? 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 C280 battery. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. 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 C280 won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1998 Mercedes-Benz C280 engine. To learn how often Mercedes-Benz recommends you have the oil changed in your 1998 C280, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1998 Mercedes-Benz C280.

Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Mercedes-Benz C280 cooling, heating, and climate control system.

  • When should I have Mercedes-Benz C280 alignment checked? You know your Mercedes-Benz C280 better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving.
