Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Mercedes-Benz C280

Bring your 2000 Mercedes-Benz C280 to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and a skilled technician will start the appointment with 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.

Could your 2000 Mercedes-Benz C280 be ready for a new battery? In general, car batteries only last three to five years.

Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty C280) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Mercedes-Benz C280 won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.
