  • At around 100,000 miles, Mercedes-Benz drivers have reported vibrations on the seat, in the cabin, and on the steering wheel, which happens when the motor mounts fail. They must be replaced to stop the problem.

  • Drivers have reported hearing rattling and banging coming from struts that are loose or leaking.

  • These do the hard work when you press the button to lower or close the windows, but have been reported to fail, but can be easily replaced.

Benefits of Getting Consistent Mechanical Check-Ups

Improved Reliability

If you don’t take good care of your vehicle, it won’t be there for you in the future.

While this means oil changes and tire rotations, it also entails having routine check-ups performed by expert Mercedes service center at Milito’s Auto Repair in Chicago.

Higher Resale Value

If you’re looking to sell your car at some point in the future, you’ll want to keep up with routine service and maintenance.

This will help to ensure that it continues to run in optimal condition. Selling it will not only be easier down the road, but much more profitable!

Better Fuel Economy

First, make sure your tire pressure is set to the right levels. This prevents your car from expending unnecessary energy and fuel while moving.

If your air filter is clogged or your fuel lines are leaking, your Meredes’ fuel economy can be negatively affected by up to 20%.

I have taken my car to Milito’s for regular checkups and repairs for years. They do very good work and are a fantastic crew.

How Mercedes Has Stood The Test Of Time

“The Best or Nothing”

The motto for luxury car brand Mercedes=Benz is: “Das Beste oder Nichts” which literally means – “the best or nothing.” That’s carried out in everything that they do, from the sleek look built to impress to the 10,000 different places they make sure no nuts or bolts get loose.

Produced by Daimler AG for more than 150 years, the Mercedes-Benz has seen some of the darkest times in European history followed by some of the most innovative years in automotive technology.

And riding in a Mercedes-Benz with air suspension? An experience you’ll never forget.

If you’re looking for a luxury car but don’t want to pay for a brand new model, a used Mercedes-Benz is the way to go.

Here are five things that you should do:

  1. Read the Records – Check the serial number with your local Mercedes-Benz dealer for a service history. If they don’t have a history, make sure it had credible records from the owner.
  2. Professional Inspection – Even if you ran a vehicle history report, you should still have the car inspected by a mechanic to find potential issues and to determine if the car has been in an unreported accident. Make sure they pay attention to engine-related components, like fluids, hoses and belts, radiator, and the battery.
  3. Check the Tires – Tires can tell you a lot regarding the maintenance and driving history of the car. If tires are worn unevenly across the width of the tread, this could indicated aggressive driving by the previous owner of the vehicle. Also look at the surface of the tire for feathering (bad alignment). Bad alignment can be caused by worn steering/suspension components, the Chicago potholes, or frame damage.
  4. Certified Pre-Owned – The certification provides a long-term warranty which is only offered after a rigorous 154-point test fully resolving any visual or technical flaws. It also includes a road test, post-road test, 24/7 roadside assistance, and an unlimited-mileage warranty for one year that can be extended for up to two additional years.
  5. Test Drive – You’re judging your comfort level with the car. Do the power windows all work? Are the mirrors easily adjustable? You have to be comfortable with your ride before you put down the cash.

The History of Mercedes-Benz

Back in the 1880s, Gottlieb Daimler and Karl Benz each invented a high-speed engine — even though they had never met. Daimler worked with his business partner, Wilhelm Maybach, to design what would eventually become a modern gasoline engine in 1885. Around the same time, Benz began the development of one of the first automobiles by using bicycle technology and a four-stroke engine.

A few years later, Benz introduced a four-wheeler and Daimler struck a deal with William Steinway to produce horseless carriages in the US.

It was during this time that Daimler established DMG and Benz founded Benz & Cie. In 1900, DMG introduced a car — the ‘Mercedes’. This was a stepping stone in the history of Mercedes-Benz, but unfortunately, the war soon started in Germany. With little or no fuel for cars and high taxes, it made automobile production disastrous.

The Creation of Mercedes-Benz

The conditions of war forced DMG and Benz to sign an agreement of mutual interest, but they could maintain their individual identities. However, in 1926, the companies merged to form the Daimler-Benz company. A year later, the new company christened their joint automobile project the Mercedes-Benz.

The merger was considered a success, and production of Mercedes-Benz cars rose to 7,000 vehicles in 1927. In the 30s, their success would only continue with the debut of the Mercedes-Benz W15 — their largest and most prestigious car yet. This allowed them to become one of the leading brands in the automotive industry. As a result, Mercedes-Benz was created as a separate division of the Daimler-Benz AG.
