Mercedes-Benz models are equipped with many cutting-edge safety features, but no safety feature is more important than the brakes. To keep yourself, your passengers, and your vehicle safe, you need to keep your brakes in good condition. We make this easy at Silver Star Motors, your local Mercedes-Benz service center near Astoria and Queens. Find out more on this page, or just stop by for brake service.
While synthetic oil is recommended for most modern Mercedes-Benz models, conventional oil may sometimes be used on older models. This oil is the least expensive type, but it doesn’t last as long. Conventional oil will need to be changed about every 3,000 miles.
Regular brake inspection is a great way to assess the condition of your brakes. Our technicians will check the thickness of the brake pads and brake rotors; they will also check the brake lines, master cylinder, and brake calipers.
When the brake lining on the brake pads wears thin, it’s time to have the brake pads replaced. Failure to do so can cause the metal backing to be exposed, putting the rotors and other components at risk of damage.
Brake rotors may become warped or glazed. If they still have sufficient thickness, they can often be resurfaced instead of replaced. However, rotors that are too thin must be replaced, whether they are warped or not.
When it comes to something as important as the brakes, it’s best not to cut any corners. At Silver Star Motors, we employ certified technicians who use OEM parts and fluids when they service your brakes. This ensures that your brakes will get only the highest quality parts, enabling them to live up to Mercedes-Benz standards for quality and safety.
