A great vehicle deserves great care.
Keep your Mercedes-Benz looking like new inside and out with specially formulated shampoo, paint cleaner, polish, and other products from the Mercedes-Benz Car Care Product Collection. Each product is meticulously designed to clean, protect, and maintain the original Mercedes-Benz appearance that was love at first sight.
From dust and dirt to more grating contaminants like road grime and tree sap, maintaining the exterior of your Mercedes-Benz requires careful cleaning. We recommend using Mercedes-Benz Car Care Products, available at your local authorized Mercedes-Benz dealer, for the best results.
Remove loose contaminants that have not bonded to the paint finish by washing your vehicle with Mercedes-Benz Car Shampoo and water.
Never wash the vehicle unless it is cool and in the shade. Avoid using dishwashing detergents, which may cause paint to fade and oxidize.
Depending on the weather and road conditions where you live, your vehicle might need to be washed more often. For example, if you live near the coast, where ocean salt is more prevalent, wash your vehicle more frequently.
Restore a smooth finish prior to polishing your vehicle by using Mercedes-Benz Paint Cleaner to remove any surface stains, oxidation, or blemishes.
Scratches, swirl marks, and common surface contaminants - including vehicle exhaust, insecticides, industrial pollutants, tree sap, bird and insect deposits, and ocean salt - can compromise your vehicle's finish and, if left untreated, make even vibrant colors look faded and dull.
For exceptional protection for your vehicle, we recommend polishing your vehicle with Mercedes-Benz Paint Care. This can help remove light surface problems and polish your vehicle to a brilliant finish, coating it with a complex layer of waxes, silicones, polymers, and resins.
To evaluate your paint finish, run a clean, dry hand along your vehicle's clean surface. It should feel as smooth as glass. If it doesn't, you're feeling bonded contaminants.
Regular use of Mercedes-Benz Car Care Products will remove this contamination. To reduce surface damage, park your vehicle in the garage whenever possible or use a vehicle cover, available at your local authorized Mercedes-Benz dealer.
Mercedes-Benz Small Repair services can also help restore your vehicle's paint in the event that it's compromised.
To keep your interior surfaces shining and your seats looking and feeling their best, we recommend using Mercedes-Benz Car Care Products, each product designed specifically for the needs of your vehicle interior.
Mercedes-Benz Interior Care removes contaminants, restores and protects all MB-Tex, vinyl, plastic and rubber surfaces (including tires), and leaves them with a low-gloss finish.
Mercedes-Benz Leather Care cleans away surface contaminants, restores the original suppleness and beauty of the leather, and nourishes and protects against damaging UV rays with an invisible coating - all in one application.
Be sure to vacuum the inside of your vehicle frequently, and use seat covers if you're worried about discoloration from contact.
Effective Wheel Care
The wheels on your Mercedes-Benz were designed to catch the eye of the beholder, but more importantly they were engineered to connect you with the road. It's best to use an effective cleaning product like Mercedes Benz Lifestyle Collection Wheel Care that's formulated specifically to keep your wheels looking and performing their best. You'll find this product readily at your local authorized Mercedes-Benz dealer.
Car Care and the Environment
Regular car care goes beyond your vehicle's surfaces. By adhering to the schedules in your Maintenance Manuals, following your Mercedes-Benz service technician's recommendations, and driving as eco-friendly as possible, you can ensure you are not only taking care of your vehicle, but the environment as well.
