Most automakers claim to be on the cutting edge of technology. Mercedes-Benz is the company that defines the cutting edge. Not only did Mercedes-Benz invent the first car in 1886, but the company also pioneered a comprehensive crash testing program, the first antilock braking system, and the first 4-wheel independent suspension, all features that come standard on modern vehicles.
At Viking Automotive, we know Mercedes vehicles just as well as the Mercedes dealerships. Our technicians stay up-to-date on the latest Mercedes technology and features to ensure we can take care of your vehicle whether you need an oil change or engine replacement. If you live in the Midvale area, we hope you’ll count on us to keep your Mercedes performing at its best.
If any warning lights display on your Mercedes vehicle, you should head to an auto repair shop as soon as possible (at a minimum within the next 600 miles). Generally, your motor oil and filter must be changed at least once a year, and this may be the culprit. However, if you’re driving in optimal conditions, your vehicle might not indicate the need for vehicle service for more than a year. At Viking Automotive, our trained technicians can accurately determine when your Mercedes needs maintenance, exactly when and not before or after it’s necessary.
The brake pads on your Mercedes vehicle are equipped with wear indicators that will produce a squealing noise when the brakes are almost worn out. The noise will start when there is about 2 mm of brake pad friction remaining, which is when brake pads need to be replaced. If you are hearing this noise, your brake pads should be replaced as soon as possible. (The noise may be present even when you’re not applying the brake pedal.) At Viking Automotive, we can help with all your Mercedes service needs.
Please give Viking Automotive a call or contact us online if you need auto repairs or maintenance for your Mercedes. We’d love for you to become one of our many satisfied customers!
