We are committed to making your Mercedes Benz last longer and performing like new for years to come. One of the most searched terms on Google is the phrase, “Mercedes repair costs”. This is with good reason, for a neglected Mercedes can easily drain the bank account. We are here to tell you, this doesn’t need be the case and preventive maintenance now can save you money down the road.
With the auto industry in a pitched battle to be the top brand, the car manufactures try to eek out every competitive advantage over their rivals. One way they do this is by claiming lower cost of ownership. Don’t be fooled by these false claims! The main tactic manufactures use to lower cost of ownership is by deferring maintenance past the first 36 months of a vehicles life. This makes it seem like a luxury German vehicle isn’t so expensive to own. If you plan on keeping your car past the warranty, this deferred maintenance will come back to haunt you. We can keep your Mercedes maintenance cost low and make your car last longer.

Mercedes Engine and Transmission Repair
The engine in your Mercedes Benz vehicle is a very delicate and sensitive system, with many different components and sensors of which the most important one is the engine itself. This is the center of the vehicle and the heart of what makes a Mercedes such a pleasure to drive. If anything goes wrong with it, it can create a lot of issues and problems ranging from the simple to the catastrophic.
One example would be a clogged air filter. If you were to allow this otherwise trivial component to remain unchanged, it would mean a less-than-optimum ‘air mixture’ ratio in the combustion chamber of your Mercedes Benz engine. This in turn would significantly erode engine performance as well as lead to a greater consumption of gas or diesel fuel.
Today’s new breed of Mercedes Benz vehicles are equipped with a vast array of warning lights that are connected to sensors that monitor your engine and all other auxiliary systems. Some of the most important ones include the Mercedes check engine as well as Mercedes engine oil lights. If either of these two lights starts flashing, it is time to head to a Mercedes Benz trusted mechanic.

Do I Have To Take My Mercedes To The Dealer?
Many Mercedes dealers would like you to believe that you must return to them for all of your service and repairs, even after the warranty has expired. This is just not true! Its a little known fact, but most new car dealers only make money on their service department, not on the sales of new vehicles. So, every effort is made to led the consumer to think they are doing something wrong if they do not bring their Mercedes to the dealer for a repair. We have written extensively about this in the past and you can read one of our Blog Posts about it here:
Have you ever noticed how “friendly” the sales people are when you take your car back to the dealer for something? The other negative to returning to the dealer is your are preyed upon by the staff to get you out of your current vehicle and into a new Mercedes so the whole process can start again. If you are interested in saving money maintaining your Mercedes Benz and making your car last longer, an independent repair shop like us will be your best friend. Our interest is in your repeat business!
Mercedes Benz Scheduled Maintenance
Is it safe to take your Mercedes Benz to a “quick lube” place for an oil change? The answer is no, but not always for the reason you may think. The Mercedes your are driving is an expensive, high performance, and complicated vehicle. These corner quick lubes or “Big Box” car care centers are not equipped to handle the complexity of your Mercedes. Yes, many folks can drain the oil and install a new filter, but the real benefit of a experienced Mercedes mechanic is we know what to look out for and can properly diagnose issues, and even prevent future problems.
When we perform a scheduled service on your Mercedes, you get more than a quick look over. We perform a detailed inspection of your Mercedes from top to bottom, checking out the tires, checking fluids, reading the history of the vehicle, and a safety check. In addition, we have the correct Mercedes filters and seals to do the job right, not some cheap no name store filter. How many times have you been to a shop and they could not reset your oil change or service light?
