Luxury Vehicle Care

Luxury vehicle care boils down to two steps: following your maintenance schedule and keeping up with regular cleaning. Want your new or CPO Mercedes-Benz to look its best when you head to Downtown St. Louis to try out a new restaurant? Mercedes-Benz of St. Louis has you covered! Follow our vehicle care tips below!

Keep Up With Maintenance Schedules

Mercedes-Benz and AMG® vehicles are designed by some of the industry’s best engineers. To ensure your car is performing at its best, it’s important to follow the recommended service intervals set forth by the manufacturer. With a mainstream car, you can sometimes get away with putting off certain repairs, but that’s not the case with a premium car. Even the simplest of repairs should be completed on time, using genuine OEM parts that have been designed for your model and trim.

Clean the Car Regularly

Preserving the appearance of your luxury car starts with weekly cleanings. One of the many things that differentiates luxury cars from mainstream cars is their paint jobs. To keep your vehicle looking its best, you’ll want to clean it about once a week — wheels included. Rinse the car thoroughly and use a microfiber cloth to lather the cleaning solution over the car’s surface and wheels. Finish with a rinse. For extra shine, consider getting your car polished by a professional once a month.

Choose the Right Cleaning Products

When you purchased your luxury car, you made a big investment. It only makes sense to use the correct cleaning products to keep it immaculate. Knowing how to care for luxury cars means knowing which products to use and which products to avoid. Keep in mind, the right cleaning products don’t always mean the most expensive. For example, you can use a lemon juice and cream of tartar solution to remove stains from leather seats, but on light upholstery only. Make sure to use a microfiber cloth to wipe, as opposed to a terry cloth.
