Our highly-trained and certified technicians use the most up-to-date equipment to ensure that every aspect of your vehicle is properly inspected and is running at its peak performance for the winter months.
A great place to start when winterizing your Mercedes-Benz is to flush and replace all of its fluids, especially the coolant. When you don't have the proper amount of antifreeze/water mixture, fluid can easily freeze inside of your radiator. Thankfully all you need to do is check your Mercedes-Benz owner's manual to see the proper mixture. A fluid that is often overlooked when winterizing a vehicle is wiper fluid. Most people assume their wiper fluid will word regardless of the weather, but when they go to use it in sub-freezing temperatures, they come to find out that their wiper fluid has frozen on them. Another great way to help your Mercedes-Benz be ready for winter is to make the change to winter tires. Unlike regular or all-season tires, winter tires provide more grip on slippery roads, and can even cut through the snow with relative ease. Because they are made with a different rubber compound, winter tires keep their elasticity longer than other tires, and this in turn provides better traction on winter roads.
There are many more helpful ways to help your Mercedes-Benz vehicle become properly prepared for the upcoming winter months, and if you do not have the time to winterize your vehicle yourself, you can rest assured when you put your trust in the technicians here at Mercedes-Benz of Seattle.
