Here’s Why 1998 Mercedes-Benz CL500 Scheduled Maintenance Matters

Take care of your Mercedes-Benz CL500 and it'll take care of you. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your CL500 could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your CL500, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1998 Mercedes-Benz CL500!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Mercedes-Benz, your vehicle manufacturer. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your CL500 running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and prevent common 1998 Mercedes-Benz CL500 problems.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Mercedes-Benz CL500 Running Newer, Longer

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1998 Mercedes-Benz CL500 and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your CL500’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1998 Mercedes-Benz CL500. In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your CL500 may need a replacement battery sooner. 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 CL500 battery. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your CL500 stranded. Your Mercedes-Benz CL500 won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can help your 1998 Mercedes-Benz CL500's engine run smoother. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1998 CL500. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1998 Mercedes-Benz CL500? We can help with that, too!

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Mercedes-Benz CL500? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
