Free Mercedes-Benz Winter Health Check
Ensure your Mercedes-Benz is prepared for winter
Winter driving can place extra demands on you – and your car. We’d like to reassure you that there is still time to prepare your car for the winter. With our free Winter Health Check, you can ensure your Mercedes-Benz is prepared for winter, whatever the weather has in store.
During the inspection our expert technicians will check key operational systems and components to make sure everything is in perfect working order, including electrical functions, the lights, brakes, tyres, oil and fluid levels, cooling system, battery inspections, and underbody.
Afterwards we will go through the report with you and make a recommendation to you if any work is needed. However, there is no obligation to have it done there and then.
