A Guide to Multi-Point Inspections for Orange County Drivers
From the day you drove your Mercedes-Benz vehicle home, it has delivered high-performance and an engaging driving experience. Following regular maintenance intervals ensures that every system is functioning properly, and helps retain that new-vehicle feel for years to come. For model year 2009 and newer, Mercedes-Benz vehicles should have a multi-point inspection every 10,000 miles or every 12 months – whichever occurs first. Newport Beach drivers trust Fletcher Jones Motorcars Newport Beach for their Mercedes-Benz multi-point inspections, thanks to a skilled staff, quick service, and appointments that work around your busy schedule.
Components of a Multi-Point Inspection
To understand the importance of a multi-point inspection, it helps to know what it entails. Your Mercedes-Benz Certified Technician will consult the manual for your specific vehicle, and make any necessary recommendations for checks unique to your vehicle. Every multi-point inspection includes the following:
- Engine oil level
- Coolant level
- Brake system fluid level
- Windshield washing system
- Tire pressure check
- Tire rotation*
Normal vs. Severe Operating Conditions
The 10,000-mile/12-month interval recommendation (for model year 2009 and newer) is for vehicles that operate under normal conditions. If your vehicle operates under severe conditions, you’ll likely need more frequent inspections and replacements for interior filters, spark plugs, tires, coolant, and more. Discuss your typical operating conditions with your Mercedes-Benz technician, who can determine if you should have a multi-point inspection performed on a more frequent basis.
