Question about 2007 Mercedes-Benz R350

1 Answer

MB service says 3 tires need replacement on R350, at 25K miles?

Car is 2 years old and has 25,000 miles; hard to imagine 3 tires need to be replaced already; any input or advice? technician is saying tires are "30 seconds down to the wear bars" what does this mean?

    I have the same problem. Why are they putting tires on that go at 25-30 Miles? Someone told me they are softer for better road hugging? I don't buy this. I am going to put on 4 tires from Michelen or something else that fits and is good.

    I have 23k miles on my mercedes 350 and already the tires are worn to the point of replacement. I'm 43 and have obviously had several cars and never have I needed to replace tires at this point.

Do I need to replace transmission fluid?


Forget the dash reminder gadgets or manufacture
maintenance schedules
You change trans fluid every 3 years
If you want to change at 30,000 miles that's
perfect,just don't go past 3 years & do power
steering at same time

My odometer is 110,000 that a subaru 2008 outback is that bad,i bought only last week



  • Not to bad. Outback is a good vehicle. With so many miles and it only being a 2008 I am inclined to think this was a highway traveled vehicle more than in town. This is good because highway miles is far better on a vehicle than in town miles. Some maintenance you need to either confirm has been done or inspected to see if it needs to be done. May also have some warranty with it to but warranties often do not cover preventative maintenance.
  1. Transmission flush - 20,000 miles
  2. Transmission Filter - 50,000 miles
  3. Radiator flush. - 30,000 miles
  4. Air filter. - As needed.
  5. Oil change. - 3 months or 3,000 miles - usually right away with new vehicle.
  6. Emissions clean. - 25,000 miles
  7. Brake inspection. Right away with new vehicle.
  8. Serpentine belt - 50,000 miles inspect often.
  9. Alignment check - Check is often free.
  10. Tires.

I have a 2006 Toyota Highlander I have 31150 miles on it and was just told I need to replace all 4 tires for the second time This will be my thiird set...the dealership gave me a nonsense excues and...


alot of things could be causing excessive tire wear i would imagine the dealership would of told you if there was front end problems so we can rule that out but two more important things are rotating tires every 3000 miles and checking and or making adjustment on alighnments atleast twice a year. the angle that would cause the worst tire wear and is almost always the angle that is out is toe. I would start with a alighnment and making sure your tires are rotated

My jeep wrangler just passed 100,000 miles, what service does it need?


Here is the basic maintenance list for your Jeep:

~ Inspect lights and check tire pressure at least monthly or before & after each trail ride

~ Oil & filter change, chassis lubrication, differential and transfer-case fluids every 3,000 to 5,000 miles or 3 to 4 months - if you have recently crossed through water deep enough to submerge the centre of your hubs, replace the differential fluids as a precaution

~ Underhood belt and hose inspection every 3,000 to 5,000 miles or 3 to 4 months (every oil change)

~ Tire rotation and wheel balancing every 6,000 miles or every other oil change - driving offroad can knock wheel weights off a wheel, so you may need to have this done more frequently

~ Brake inspection every 6,000 miles or every other oil change - if you have rum brakes in the rear, ensure they are cleaned after each trail ride where you encountered deep mud/snow

~ Replace air filter every 12,000 to 24,000 miles or as indicated by inspection - dusty trails can shorten these intervals dramatically

~ Replace fuel filter every 24,000 to 100,000 miles

~ Automatic transmission service every 24,000 to 100,000 miles

~ Wheel alignment check every 12,000 to 24,000 miles or as indicated by tire wear - offroad driving can knock wheels out of alignment, so budget for an alignment every 3 months, then watch tread wear to see if it's needed

~ Cooling system flush and refill every 40,000 to 100,000 miles

~ Belt and hose replacement every 60,000 to 100,000 miles or 5 to 8 years

~ Engine timing belt replacement every 60,000 to 100,000 miles (when equipped) or 5 to 8 years

~ Air conditioning performance check annually, usually in the spring - be sure to run your A/C during the winter for brief period to ensure all hoses and valves stay lubricated and operable

When do I change the transmission fluid ? 2008 Camry LE


The Camry's transmission fluid is meant to be changed every 50,000 miles. At least, that's what Toyota says; it is possible to go more than 50,000 miles between changes but I would advise against it. Your car is almost 2 years old, so unless you are driving over 25,000 miles a year you shouldn't be needing a transmission fluid change just yet.

I want to get service for a AWD 2005 GRD CHK LTD What are the basics that I should have done for 45000. I have had no dealer work after 25000. Dealer went out of buisness. I was always taking their advice...


You can go any place like jiffy lube for your Oil and filter change every 4,000 miles or 6 month's which ever comes first. The air filter should be replaced every 25,000 miles and PVC valve or once a year. The transmission, transfer case, front and rear differential should be serviced 80,000 to 100,000 miles or 5 years which ever comes first. The radiator antifreeze if orange service 150,000 miles or 5 years, if antifreeze is green every 30,000 miles or once a year. The spark plugs , wire set good for 100,000 miles. Oh and fuel filter is in the gas tank and a part of the fuel pump so don't let someone tell you that the fuel filter needs to be changed. Change it when the fuel pump fails and that's around 150,000 miles. And last the wipers blade, always replace them in the spring. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to help.

I have a 2007 toyota matrix. I would like to know what kind of service is needed at 25,000 miles and what is the cost?? thanks


Do an oil change every 4 to 5000 miles. Check air filter and replace if necessary. Do tire rotation every 5000 miles especially if you have warranty on tires. The manual will list some other stuff but I would only be concern with the above. 25,000 miles is not a lot of mileage. Probably looking at $40. Please ask any other concerns.

2007 Chevy Classic Crew Cab tried to overheat in traffic for the first time. I have 48000 miles.


Your vehicle should never over heat regardless of age. Your thermostat and radiator cap will however become tired and will need to be replaced. The coolant in your engine should also be replaced as the PH level will rise and this will eat away at your radiator.
As for your brakes squealing, they may need to be replaced. There are little springs on your front brakes that will contact your rotor and these are intended to let you know that you have 10% left.
