Customer Question
Tell me about Mercedes...

Tell me about Mercedes battery maintenance requirements for a CLK 550 model 2007.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you tested the battery with a voltmeter? And can you see if it's leaking or not?

Service agent said battery was dead and replaced it with only 540 miles usage in three months. Explain please.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your F550 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Agent replaced battery. Got new warranty. job done but what he told me makes no sense.

Hi, my name is***** the battery was bad after only 3 months the battery was either defective or there is a parasitic drain on the system or the battery was not really bad and a 24-hour recharge would have been sufficient. If the car sits unused for weeks at a time it would be a good idea to use a battery tender to keep the battery charged. If you use the car regularly there should be no problem. It is true that a car that is used very little will shorten the life of a battery but not to the point where it needs to be replaced every 3 months. A low mileage car like yours may require a new battery every couple of years.

Let me know if you have any questions.
