Mercedes-Benz is a German producer of luxury cars and SUVs. With models ranging from the smart Car to the Sprinter Van to the SL500, Mercedes is a diversified auto manufacturer. Whereas Ford is credited with inventing the modern assembly line, Mercedes is credited with creating the gas-powered car. Mercedes was also the first to transition from the tall horseless carriage design to the modern drop chassis (whereby the platform is between the wheels, not above it.)
Mercedes cars of the 1980s and 1990s were mostly shaped like a brick and were primarily rear-wheel drive. In the 2000s, the Mercedes lineup became shapelier and more diverse (but not cheap) – the E and S class sedans were offered with diesel engines and the SUV lineup added models. More cars were offered with AMG performance variants including the shock-and-awe SLS AMG, launched in 2010. Mercedes also services the commercial markets with its Sprinter van series.
With the hallmarks like the C Class and G Wagon and newer models such as the GLX, Mercedes-Benz continues to be a major player in the luxury car market.
“This was a FANTASTIC video! I changed the entire headlight assemblies BY MYSELF! The most difficult part was disengaging the fasteners, as they were quite stiff. Other than that, it was easy. Saved me a couple hundred $$ - of course that's what the auto shop quoted me. Thanks! ”
“Excellent video for headlamp replacement. Thanks. ”
“I just stumbled to your site when trying to figure out how to change the headlight bulb on a 2005 Subaru Outback. The video was specific, clear, and broken into small steps - this was very helpful; you are now absolutely the first place I'll go for car care issues. Thanks! ”
“You website saved me $$$$$ and gave me the CONFIDENCE to fix my car problem myself! I'm a 45-year-old mom andI knew absolutely nothing about my Honda Odyssey worked. After watching your clear, concise video tutorials, I learned how to check & change fuses and replace headlight bulbs....... in just 1 day! I also taught my 11-year-old son what I learned today too. Thank you CarCareKiosk!!!! ”
“When other sites suggested I remove the back seat of my 99 Pontiac to get to the "third light" brake light, your videos showed me the easy way to access and change it through the trunk. Thank you so much for saving me time and extra effort on this and many other projects. I will continue to use your site for a very long time. ”
