Major Service/Inspection

Central Auto Care recommends inspections to be done every 15,000 miles or when prompted by instrument cluster display.

Transmission Fluid/Filter Change

For cars built before 1998 we recommend a transmission fluid and filter change along with pan gasket replacement every 27,500 miles.

For cars built after 1998, Central Auto Care recommends a service at 30K miles, then again as needed.

Brake Fluid Change

Central Auto Care recommends a brake fluid change every 12 months. This is vital for Mercedes equipped with Antilock Braking System (ABS) and Sensotronic Brake Control (SBC) due to moisture absorption and “slime” deposits that cause hose swelling and brake rust.

Antifreeze Change

Central Auto Care recommends a full antifreeze flush every 3 years. Dangerous Metal build-up can occur in the coolant system as a result of failure to flush the system as directed by the service sheet for cars built after 1998.
