The Mercedes brand of automobiles is manufactured and sold by the German company Daimler AG. Vehicles with the Mercedes name include sedans, coupes, buses, vans and trucks. If your Mercedes experiences engine failure, electrical failure or any other type of failure that makes it inoperable, it should be towed. It's important to properly observe towing instructions to ensure damage isn't done to your vehicle, especially when towing a car with all wheels on the ground.
