Monsoons have arrived in the country, a season that is much awaited by many, a time when a drive with family and friends is almost considered essential. Mercedes-Benz India has introduced a complimentary Pre-monsoon Check-Up Camp for its customers across the country. This is the season where the vehicle needs utmost care, safety, and maintenance. This complimentary service will be available at all authorized workshops from July 22 to August 31, 2017.

The rains provide a much-needed respite. However, they are accompanied by a series of related issues like water logging on the roads, a surge in the number of potholes, an increase in traffic and low external visibility. While Mercedes-Benz helps customers minimize the risk and improve drivability during the monsoon, it is always wise to get them checked out. The Mercedes-Benz Monsoon Check-Up Camp offers services and products to enhance customer safety.

At the complimentary Mercedes-Benz Monsoon Check-Up Camp, customers will benefit from the following services - Complimentary Exhaustive 82-point vehicle check-up, complimentary engine oil top-up, complimentary windshield washer replacement, Mercedes-Benz certified tyres at a special price and replacement of wiper blades at a special price.

Roland Folger, Managing Director & CEO, Mercedes-Benz India commented, “Our customers’ safety, comfort, and convenience have always been our prerogative. We believe it is imperative to take care of your Three Pointed Star during monsoons. This is the time when visibility during driving reduces and issues like brake failures, hydrostatic locks, slippery tyres are likely to emerge due to change in road conditions caused by heavy rains. We had also started an awareness drive to educate our customers on safe driving during monsoon. We want to ensure our customers enjoy driving their Mercedes-Benz and have a complete peace of mind.”

Safe Driving Tips, which were shared as a part of the customer awareness drive:

• Do not speed on flooded roads and avoid driving in areas which are subject to heavy water logging

• Driving fast over large puddles can lead to aquaplaning, which could be dangerous as the tyres lose contact with the road surface. Slow down when driving over road sections that have large patches of water

• Maintain adequate distance from the car in front of you to avoid collision in case of sudden braking

• Check tyres for enough tread depth (2mm and above) to ensure traction and avoid aquaplaning

• Do not use cruise control during heavy rains

• Do not restart your engine if it stalls while traversing a water-logged area. This can cause severe damage to the engine. Call road-side assistance and have your vehicle towed to the nearest authorized Mercedes-Benz workshop

• Slow down while taking turns and park and wait during torrential rains

• Use A/C system/demister to clear the fog on the windshield.
