When considering the life of your tyres, brake and suspension in your Mercedes-Benz you wouldn't want to drive in a way that would wear them out prematurely, would you?
Speedbumps and pot holes are two main contributors for early wear of tyres, brakes and the suspension. There is a 20-30% increase in wear by approaching speed bumps to fast or by not avoiding pot holes.
To avoid premature wear on tyres, brakes and suspension, I recommend slowing right down when approaching speedbumps and proceeding with caution. I also recommend paying attention to the road to avoid pot holes all together. Modern cars are designed to brake quickly, but approaching a speedbump at a fast pace is not the best way to test this out.
If you’re at all concerned about your Mercedes-Benz brakes or suspension call 3397 7158 to either talk to myself or to make a booking so we can carry out a check over for you.
Drive careful, take care.

I have been taking my collection of new and classic Mercedes Benz to Theo Anthony for service and restoration purposes since 1988. During this period of 27 years my family have owned over twenty six cars and have bought several from AustStar. I have always received very satisfactory service and customer care from Theo and his team who have also been invaluable in sourcing hard to find parts for my classics.- Bill D. | 14 May 2015
