2012 Mercedes-Benz C300 Maintenance and Service Schedule

Is the steering and suspension system in your Mercedes-Benz C300 due for service yet?

Does Your 2012 Mercedes-Benz C300 Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 2012 Mercedes-Benz C300, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your C300 jolts, drifts to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2012 Mercedes-Benz C300 in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Mercedes-Benz C300’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Mercedes-Benz C300 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2012 Mercedes-Benz C300’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there's no set schedule for 2012 Mercedes-Benz C300 shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Mercedes-Benz C300 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2012 Mercedes-Benz C300 suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Mercedes-Benz C300? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my Mercedes-Benz C300 power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months.
