Vehicle Maintenance of Mercedes-Benz

Vehicle Maintenance of Mercedes-Benz

You have put in the hours, you have done your research and finally, you have purchased your Mercedes-Benz, now it is time to take proper care of it. In this article, we are going to discuss the top three things you can do to keep your prized vehicle running smoothly, and to prolong the lifespan of it.

You probably already know this but it is of the highest importance that you change your oil regularly. To prolong the durability of the vehicle all together you should have the engine oil changed at regular intervals of time, there should be instructions in your owner’s manual, but if you cannot find them consider 7,500-10,000 miles as a good ‘countdown clock’ for the change. In addition to having the oil changed you need to care for the filters as well, because they are what protects the oil from any debris that might find their way inside your vehicle, from small contaminants to bigger ones that may create problems for your Mercedes.

Having to examine the hoses and belts could be tedious and annoying, but it is important to do so, otherwise, you might find yourself having a pretty bad day because of a snapped timing belt or a cooling hose that bursts. The easiest way you can check is to examine the belts for nicks and cracks, and check the hoses if they look spongy or swollen. It is wise to do this periodically in order to have them replaced on time before anything goes wrong and you need to pay a hefty amount of money for repairs.

When it comes to the tires of your Mercedes-Benz the standard maintenance is always a good idea. Inspect the tires periodically to ensure that they are inflated just the right amount, you most definitely do not want the tires underinflated or underinflated. And as per the instructions of a mechanic or the owner’s manual you would want to keep the vehicle properly aligned, and rotate the tires every once in a while.

Last but not least, when it comes time to take your car to an auto shop, if possible, take it to one that specializes in Mercedes vehicles. If the auto repair shop is used to dealing with Mercedes-Benz due to the fact it specializes in service and repair of them, you can be calm and certain you can leave your vehicle with them.

We all know that child car safety is quite simple, provided that you follow a couple of simple steps. The first thing you need to do is to fit child restraints correctly and make sure you always buckle your kids into them correctly. In addition, it's equally important to seat your kids appropriately so that you can avoid any fighting between them and keep them happy while on the road.

The rise of the automotive industry in Kansas City
Kansas City is officially the nation's second-largest auto hub. City’s long history of auto production dates back to 1913 when Henry Ford made a decision to choose this region to be the first one outside of Detroit for auto production. The most recent expansion of Ford Motor Co. in this particular area was in 2011. At that time, the company announced a $1.2 billion investment that was meant to expand and retool Kansas City Assembly Plant, which is located in Claycomo. This plant is responsible for manufacturing the Transit and the F-150 full-size van.

Ford has a strong and steady relationship with area school districts which are part of the company’s Next Generation Learning initiative. Launched in 2006, that initiative provides mentoring, technical support, coaching, and financial support to 20 communities around the country.

Kansas City Assembly Plant uses interesting and innovative supply chain structure called Automotive Alle…
