Excellent Repair shop in Richmond BC

Try--- Juan's Automotive in Richmond. He does excellent work. Knows Mercedes and other foreign cars. Has reasonable pricing. He knows how the dealers love to overcharge for everything and appreciates saving us $$$ while still doing superior work.

Just got my 2005 E320 CDI transmission serviced at Juan's Auto Repair in Richmond, by the River Rock Casino. He serviced the computer sensor in the transmission. Seems this is a weak spot, the fluid leaks its way into the Computer and ruins the electronics. Luckily I ran into someone who knows about the Mercedes weaknesses. Mine was leaking fluid. Rather a couple hundred dollar service than a few thousand repair. An inexpensive trade off relatively. Good place to have your Mercedes repaired. He also does Porsche and BMW, as well as other more normal cars .

**Norwescan Motors
6851 Palm Ave, Burnaby BC V5J 4M1
604.433.8863

serviced my SL500 quickly and inexpensive.
Over the phone Victoria knew that my vehicle was a "Silver Arrow" Rare in Canada ,with out even me mentioning , she only knew the year 2002.
I contacted alot of places that "specialize" in MB, not one other indi had even heard of a Silver Arrow >> better they learn Mercedes history first than work on my car !
Victoria knew all the little things to check that are common with SL500 (R129) and showed me what was needed and what was recommended.."transmission electrical plug replace seal starting to leak "
Victoria is crazy for Mercedes !
small shop, low overhead, great service ..but make an appointment !

I cannot say enough good about Victoria and her staff .
My car stalled in traffic during rush hour yesterday .. 85F in the shade
called the MB 800 number to get a voice mail , call my closest MB dealer and get a parts guy telling me to just get the car towed and would look at it next week !!
call Victoria and she tells me from what had happened to pour water on the rear of motor where a wire was .....starts !!! get off road ....traffic backing up ..
now it stalls again within 5 minutes ..pour more water ..starts ...get to Victoria's shop drive right in and within minutes on a Friday late afternoon has my car hooked up to computer, Fan cooling motor and part replaced !!!!
VERY VERY VERY IMPRESSED !!!!
VICTORIA YOU AND YOUR STAFF ARE EXCELLENT !!!!

Gold Star has been out of business for quite some time, they were sold and opened under a new owner as EuroHaus which lasted for a couple years before they went out of business as well.

If memory serves the shop managers name was Tim.

Well that's annoying. Was hoping they had just been bought out and the records were still hopefully available. And I think the last signature is Tim something. Oh well was worth a shot. The Benz dealer was the auto mall in Surrey and they are supposed to have the records on what they did. So not all was a bust.

Thanks!

Dave

That wouldn't have been Timothy Yim? Have a card but from the Richmond auto mall.

I called to find out what the service history was from them and got some twit who said at first they couldn't do that do to privacy laws. I said I had no interest in the personal or costs just in the work done. Oh that doesn't matter. So I asked if they are claiming a mechanical device has a reasonable expectation of privacy? Bit of silence and then they admit they are 'just filling in . Officious little twit. Already had quickly talked to the manager about this yesterday.

I believe the Tim at EuroHaus had a German last name....Hirschkorn I think?

If you are looking for a great local mechanic I wholeheartedly recommend Walter at Euro Class Motors. http://http://www.euroclassmotors.com/
