I am looking for a good mechanic in San Gabriel Valley area, Los Angeles. I've been to Rusnak and also to Penske, don't like either of them. So if anyone knows of a good independent mechanic/shop in SGV, I'd appreciate the lead.
Currently my car wont' start, might be the battery.
Frankly, any shop so good in LA that it has customers from Texas Idaho and Northern California must be doing something right: fair rates, charged only for repairs actually done, and reluctant to foist un needed repairs on you, and EXCLUSIVELY Mercedes Benz.
In fact I am planning a trip from near Reno down there for the exclusive purpose of having him work on my car.
Perfect for cars out of warranty or older. But he is very busy, and most popular.
Tell him you were referred by some people on the internet Mercedes Shop like Alon or Ernesto (user name Benz-Lgb) as indicated below:
MR MB Motors Tarzana, CA - ShopForum
And report back if you decide to go there. It is not too far away from you.
Don't forget also as a FREE service, lifetime for ANY Benz owner, you have Mercedes Roadsist assist, it devolves to any owner, for any car no matter hows old.
1-800FORMERCEDES for a jump start, tire change or couple gallons of gvas or a tow to a Mercedes dealer.
I even had them bring a new Mercedes battery to the house, which they installed in the rain, for price of battery, no labor charge.
Best recommendation for that service!!
