When you drive a Mercedes-Benz you drive a sleek beautiful sports car masquerading as a prim and proper sedan. Because of the impressive performance of the Mercedes-Benz brand, it’s important to pay attention to your brake’s needs.

We have the experience and expertise to deal with any issue your Mercedes-Benz could be dealing with, including braking issues. We offer complete brake replacement services, from brake pads, rotors, and calibers to entire braking systems if necessary.
Every driver is different, their driving habits are unique. Because of this, the range of time for which you need to replace your brakes can vary. Generally speaking, Mercedes brake pads typically last between 30,000 and 70,000 miles. At this point, you would be looking to go to your local Mercedes mechanic for a brake replacement.
Because the mile range for a brake replacement is so wide, depending on the driving habits of the individual driver, it can be difficult to fully know when it is time to replace your brakes. Some signs to pay attention to include;
Your braking system is one of the most important elements to the safe use of your Mercedes-Benz. Because of this, it is important to use the proper brakes when having them replaced. There are a number of high-quality brands for brakes including Brembo, Bosch, and Akebono, amongst others. If you are looking for a brake replacement for your Mercedes-Benz near you speak with one of our experienced technicians about what they would recommend for your vehicle.
Another thing to note regarding Mercedes braking systems, in 2014 Mercedes also began offering the option of ceramic brake pads. These have the advantage of basically never wearing down or needing to be replaced, their disadvantage, however, is that the rotors do need to be replaced around the 100,000-mile mark and that is an expensive job running around $15,000.
The old saying ‘an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure’ might never be truer for anything more than your vehicle. Bringing your vehicle into a trusted local mechanic near you for a tune-up can save you time and money.

“We just moved to the Sarasota/Lakewood Ranch area and had a problem with my 2008 CLK 550. I called and spoke with Jessie who was very polite and knowledgeable. Took the time on our 1st conversation to run through possible answers to having an engine misfire. I made an appointment and brought the car into the shop and received one of the best diagnostic reports I have ever seen. I’ve owned Mercedes for 20+ years and have never seen the level of service and customer care before. They listened to what I wanted to do and followed through. If you are looking for honest, professional, on-time service this is the place. Also very sensitive to keeping the car clean and disinfected in this CV-19 scare. Great job!”
