ON, Whitby

I need a good indy in the Whitby area to take care of my sisters 400E.
She loves the car.
She moved there 2 years ago from Hamilton and up to then I was taking care of it for her but it's too far to go now.
Her first and LAST vist to the local dealer cost her $1200 to replace ONE distributor.....ONE!... with 5 hours labour.
No exaggeration....unbelievable....they should be charged with theft.
I reported them to MB Canada and got her a $150 gift voucher which she used on a new battery.
Anyway, she needs an indy. Someone who knows these cars and charges by the job, not flat rate.
Thanks

Well, they damage my rims, cost me $645.00, I will never go there again. Poorly managed place not owned by MB Canada. Service advisors are not very knowledgeable about the repairs.

It's the same everywhere, I used to go to MB downtown which is owned by MB and the technicians there overfilled by brake reservoir, did not record oil changes etc, not what I expected. So decided to go to Whitby which is a lot closer and give them a try and so far so good, but I always keep my eyes open. Where do you go now?

Just had a 2010 GLK serviced for a battery drain issue and a thermostat replacement. They were very accommodating (I dropped it off after getting a boost from roadside assistance without an appointment). They kept me updated when they were trying to diagnose the battery issue (fan would not shut off). No issues with this dealership, will be going back for Service B.
