Overview of Essential Mercedes-Benz CL500 Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1999 Mercedes-Benz CL500 for factory-recommended routine maintenance and an expert technician will begin by performing 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.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1999 Mercedes-Benz CL500? If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and five years).
