Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Mercedes-Benz C320 Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2003 Mercedes-Benz C320 for factory-recommended routine maintenance and a skilled technician will start the appointment 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. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your C320's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2003 Mercedes-Benz C320? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your Mercedes-Benz C320 battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your C320 stranded. Your Mercedes-Benz C320 won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.
