Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Mercedes-Benz C280 Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1999 Mercedes-Benz C280 for factory-recommended routine maintenance and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your C280. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1999 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.

Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty C280) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Mercedes-Benz C280 won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1999 Mercedes-Benz C280 running newer, longer.
