Mercedes Benz Alignment Specialist
If you’re wondering whether your Mercedes Benz needs an alignment, first look at your tires. Uneven tire wear or, more wear on the outside of some tires is a prime indicator that your car is likely out of alignment. Here are a few more indicators:
- Vehicle seems to be pulling to one side, even when you think you’re driving straight
- Steering wheel vibrates
- Driving straight, but steering wheel isn’t centered
- I hold the steering wheel straight and car goes right or left on its own
If none of these indicators occur but, it has been awhile since your last alignment, check your owner’s manual to see how often the manufacturer recommends having this service or simply bring it to People’s Choice Auto Repair and we will be more than happy to conduct an alignment check to give you your current measurements at no cost. With our state of the art equipment we can perform professional quality alignments on 2 or 4 wheels with no limits on makes and models which include Bentley, Rolls Royce, Aston Martin Etc.
The most visible benefit of an alignment is less tire wear. When tires wear down, they’ll do so evenly on a properly aligned suspension. Tires can be quite expensive — easily starting at over $100 or more per tire — whereas an alignment often costs between $90 to $150, making it a cost-effective procedure that should be part of regular preventive maintenance.
An alignment will ensure that your car drives straight and handles properly, making your Mercedes Benz driving experience that much more secure. You will also get better gas mileage since your tires will be properly aligned with the road, decreasing resistance.
Mercedes Benz Preventive Maintenance
Mercedes Benz oil change and maintenance
Make sure your Mercedes Benz gets the right fluids at the right times, whether it’s engine oil, brake fluid, transmission fluid, power steering fluid or AdBlue, the essential clean diesel additive for BLUE TEC Clean Diesel engines.
The engine in your Mercedes Benz is a sophisticated power plant, and it requires engine oil that meets exact specifications which we carry in stock at People’s Choice Auto Repair. Choosing the proper oil, along with oil and filter changes at factory-specified intervals, will help ensure proper lubrication for your vehicle’s engine.

If you drive a diesel BLUE TEC always pay proper attention to the warning system should you be notified of low AdBlue fluid levels. The AdBlue supply needs to be replenished approximately once every 10,000 miles, depending on your driving style and conditions, beginning with the 15,000-mile scheduled maintenance interval. There is a special warning system in place to ensure normal operation of your vehicle at all times. Should your vehicle require additional AdBlue, your instrument panel will begin warning you with sound and detailed instructions when 1,500 miles, 600 miles and limited miles remain.
Filters in your car are important to change as specified or needed depending on driving conditions. A dirty air filter in your engine will not give your vehicle the sufficient air flow required therefore causing your vehicle to consume more fuel than usual.
