The reasons why we do an A-Service:
Keeping your Mercedes-Benz vehicle in top condition and maintained according to factory requirements involves more than a lube,oil and filter change. At this maintenance interval a trained specialist inspects the air filter, which protects your engine from harmful foreign particles. As gasoline and air is used in your engine, it passes through a filter and series of injectors, with all of these components becoming dirty and clogged, causing poor performance and decreased fuel economy. We also recommend replacing the dust filter, which removes harmful contaminants from entering the interior of your vehicle. Next, we inspect your fuel lines and connectors for any damage or wear and check your fuel tank vapor vent system, hoses and fuel tank vapor vent system, hoses and fuel tank supports. Exhaust pipes, mufflers and hangers are inspected for cracks, deterioration or damage. Additionally, your brake lines and hoses need to be checked for cracks or damage, and your tires checked for uneven wear. These are all preventative checks designed to keep your Mercedes-Benz on the road and trouble-free.
