2011 Mercedes-Benz CL550 Maintenance and Service Schedule

Is the steering and suspension system in your Mercedes-Benz CL550 due for service yet?

Does Your 2011 Mercedes-Benz CL550 Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 2011 Mercedes-Benz CL550, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your CL550 feels bouncy, sways to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2011 Mercedes-Benz CL550, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your CL550 suspension system needs repair, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If parts of your Mercedes-Benz CL550 suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Mercedes-Benz CL550 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2011 Mercedes-Benz CL550’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 2011 Mercedes-Benz CL550 shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Mercedes-Benz CL550 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2011 Mercedes-Benz CL550’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2011 CL550 Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Mercedes-Benz's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Mercedes-Benz CL550? 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 the tires connect with the road how Mercedes-Benz intended.
  • Does my Mercedes-Benz CL550 power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your CL550’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Mercedes-Benz service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
