Maintenance FAQ's

Maintain Grip on the Road (and Your Cash) with Regular Tire Rotations

Your car's tires work hard for you every day. Even what seems like a calm drive down the open road is putting inevitable wear and tear on your tires that will eventually need to be address by replacing them. That being said, there is quite a bit you can do to prolong the life of your tires when you service your vehicle with the experts at Lujack Mercedes-Benz.

The expert service team here at Lujack Mercedes-Benz knows all our clients lead busy lives. We also know that obligations to both your family and business can sometimes prevent you from scheduling the routine maintenance your car needs to perform as efficiently as possible. This is often particularly true of tire rotations. Positioning your tires around each of your vehicle's four different wheels every 3,000 miles (or every three months) insures that each tire wears down evenly. Regular rotations not only increase the lifespan of your tires (saving you money on a new tire purchase) but also helps you maintain optimum handling and the chance to spot suspension wear-and-tear before it becomes detrimental to your vehicle.


Can't remember the last time you had your tires rotated? Growing weary of poor corner traction or unreliable handling? Visit the expert team of parts and service techs at Lujack Mercedes-Benz today at 3602 North Harrison Streer, Davenport, IA. You can also schedule an appointment by calling (563) 445-4841 or
by using our simple Service Application. When you contact us to set up an appointment, you can expect us to cover the complete details of your visit so that you can rest easy knowing exactly what work will be performed. From there, simply sit back and relax knowing that your Mercedes-Benz and its tires are receiving the care they deserve.
Stop on a Dime (& Save a Few Too) with Brake Repair at Mercedes-Benz of Des Moines

Faulty brakes are all-too-often blamed on external conditions. If you've been sliding a bit as you approach Stop signs and red lights, it's not that your neighborhood is due for a new coat of pavement or a more efficient snowplow crew. It could, in fact, mean your brakes are in need of service. Have you been hearing noises? Think that screeching or grinding noise is coming from the car behind you? Think again. Worn calipers and rotors can make some pretty funky sounds, some of which you might not even realize are coming from your car.


Nearly all brake pads come equipped with wear indicators that squeal when your pads need replacing - but the noises they make aren't always easily recognizable, especially if you've got the stereo cranked up or, like the rest of us, ten other things on your mind. In fact, having your brakes checked and repaired before they go completely caput can often save you quite a bit of money in the long run.


Drivers from around Iowa can put a stop to all their brake-related questions by calling the parts and service experts at Lujack Mercedes-Benz. Our team of experts is trained to handle all of your routine service needs, from brake repair to oil changes, tire rotations and diagnostic checks. You can also schedule a brake appointment by calling 
(563) 445-4841 or by using our simple Service Application. Contact us to arrange an appointment, and we'll go over the complete details of what work you can expect our expert team to perform.

We hope to see you soon!
Groggy Engine? Your Battery Could be the Culprit

When is the last time you checked under your car's hood? Was it when you last refilled the blue juice? Or that time you heard a weird noise in there? If your car has been starting sluggishly of late, or if its electronics have been dimming, it's not ghosts. In fact, it might be time for a battery replacement. Car batteries have a life of about three to four years, but if you notice strange leaks or corrosion on your battery before this period of time has passed, you may be due for a replacement sooner.

Your car's battery does a lot for your car over the course of its life -  everything from giving the engine the jolt of energy that it needs to start up to powering the electrical components that make modern driving so comfortable and convenient. It only makes sense that you'll want to keep your battery in perfect working order, and of course, replace it when the time inevitably comes.


The professional parts and service technicians at Mercedes-Bens of Des Moines have all the tools and experience to inspect, service or replace your car batteries at a moment's notice. So if it's been a while since you've looked under the hood, if even if your car just isn't acting like itself, it's time to visit us at 3602 North Harrison Streer, Davenport, IA. Schedule an appointment with ease by calling (563) 445-4841 or by
by using our simple Service Application. Either way, contact us today, and we'll be happy to set you up for an appointment at your earliest convenience. Our team will cover the complete details of your visit and answer any questions that you may have so that you can know exactly what work will be done during your appointment.
The cleanest way to do the dirty job
 
Why it Matters?

Many items affect the durability of your vehicle's painted surface. The fact is that your vehicle's finish is constantly bombarded and attacked by minute particles of dirt, concrete, sand, industrial fallout and pollution. Harsh weather conditions such as rain, wind, snow (and accompanying road salts) will dull your vehicle's finish.
