Celebrating National Car Care Month at Mercedes-Benz of Easton

April 1st, 2016 by

A well-kept car is a happy car, and a happy car makes a happy owner. April is national car care month, and we here at Mercedes-Benz of Easton, your go-to dealer of new Mercedes in Columbus, Ohio, are some of the best in the business when it comes to caring for our cars. When you make an investment in something as serious as a vehicle, you want to protect it, right?

Well when your investment isn’t just any vehicle, but a beautiful Mercedes-Benz, you take protecting that vehicle even more seriously. That means the average American’s bi-annual car-wash isn’t going to cut it this time. In honor of national car care month, we here at Mercedes-Benz of Easton have put together this list of car care tips that will have your car running in tip-top shape.


  1. Detailed Interior WashFirst, and perhaps most importantly, your vehicle needs, at least, a monthly exterior wash, and depending on the type of action it sees, it may need a monthly interior clean as well. This isn’t just so that everything sparkles like it was just bought yesterday, although that is a nice perk, the more closely you care for your vehicle’s interior, the longer it holds its value.Worn carpeting, torn leather, stained cloth and scuffed rubber are all common eyesores that can significantly lower the resale value of your vehicle and they can also be avoided with quick and easy upkeep. If you have a favorite car washing service, most are quite thorough and have the tools necessary to properly maintain your vehicle. If not, most interior issues can be taken care of with a little hard work and a quick trip to the car care aisle at your local supermarket.Products like Lexol leather care, Armor All original protectant, and Meguiar’s Carpet and upholstery cleaner are just a few cheap options that require very little labor to keep your car looking fresh and clean.  car-tips-mercedes
  2. Exterior Care The outside of your car is what requires the most care, as it is constantly pounded by natural forces that can dull your car’s paint job, cause scratches and even deteriorate the metal. Think about it, when your car isn’t roasting in the hot sun, which can oxidize your vehicle’s paint, it is driving at high speeds killing thousands of bugs and collecting bird droppings.If you park under a tree, your car will likely be covered in tree sap, leaves and sticks by the time you get back. Without consistent cleanings, these types of daily occurrences can really take a toll on your vehicle. A simple do-it-yourself soap and water cleaning may be enough for a week-to-week basis, but to truly protect and restore your car, you may need some professional assistance.The good folks at Auto Detail Doctor are well equipped and highly capable of giving your 2016 Mercedes-Benz E-Class the treatment it deserves with a full wax, polish and sealant application.  mercedes-benz-tune-up-columbus
