Four-wheel Computerized Alignment
What we do:

Tire Rotation
Regular rotation of your vehicle’s tires helps prevent uneven wear, improper handling, reduced fuel efficiency and shortened tire life. We recommended Tire Rotation every 6,000 to 8,000 miles, or at any sign of uneven wear.
What we do:
Rotate tires
Check and correct tire pressure
Inspect tire condition
Inspect brake pads for wear
Perform a road test
Tire Balancing
As tires wear normally they may become out-of-balance, causing vehicle vibration and accelerated tire wear. We recommend Tire Balancing at every other rotation to ensure a smooth ride and even tire wear.
What we do:
Computer-balance four wheels using Mercedes-Benz weights, clips and springs to ensure proper balancing with no damage to wheels
Perform a road test
Front Brake Pad Replacement

Inspect brake discs for condition and wear
Inspect brake calipers, lines and emergency brake

Top up brake fluid
Brake Fluid Flush
During the operation of a vehicle, the brake fluid’s boiling point is continually reduced through the absorption of atmospheric moisture. This moisture content can lead to the formation of vapor under hard braking conditions, reducing the system’s efficiency. Mercedes-Benz recommends replacing brake fluid every two years.

Flush contaminated fluid from the brake system
Clean the brake fluid reservoir
Inspect the brake system for leaks
Replenish the system with new Mercedes-Benz brake fluid
