4 Summer Car Care Tips for Your Mercedes

classic-motorsports-3-16The harsh summer heat and varying weather conditions can wreak havoc on your Mercedes if you aren’t careful. To keep your car looking new, it’s important you take certain precautions as the seasons change. You should have your car checked regularly, but it’s especially important to work with Mercedes service experts as summer approaches. Here are four car care tips to help you protect your Mercedes this summer.

Wash Your Mercedes Even When It Rains

Depending on where you live, summer can either mean more or less rain. Wherever you and your car reside, it’s important to have your Mercedes washed regularly. A light summer rainstorm isn’t enough to “wash” your car. In fact, rain can sometimes contain small amounts of acid that leave acidic residue on your car. Giving your Mercedes a good rinse after it rains can help keep your car looking shiny and new for years to come.

Get Your Windows Tinted

Summer means lots of sunshine, which is extremely enjoyable but can cause gradual damage to the inside of your Mercedes. Continual exposure to UV rays will result in premature aging of leather seats and possible discoloration of your dashboard and steering wheel. If your state allows, you should speak with your auto repair team about tinting your windows.

Make Sure You’re Waxing

Waxing your Mercedes can be time-consuming, but it’s definitely worth the effort. Applying and removing wax appropriately is what will keep your car looking beautiful for years and years. The resulting barrier helps protect your paintjob from the sometimes unpredictable weather conditions associated with summer months, as well as other potential threats like pollen, sap, and bird droppings. Also remember to keep your Mercedes covered if you’re unable to park it inside.
