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.

Having originally been introduced to Theo and Andrew in the mid-90’s, I have continued to use them for the 4 Mercedes vehicles owned in that time, 3 of which were purchased through Theo.
They have always been easy to deal with, honest and open when discussing issues that have arisen (or may be about to arise). In that time they have serviced those vehicles through over 500,000 kilometres! I will be continuing to use and recommend Theo, Andrew, Michael and the team for many years to come.- Ian H. | 22 May 2015
