RE: Mechanic in Pittsburgh

Mechanic Jimmy - Jimmy's On-It Automotive - Home

He used to be a Mercedes Tech, reasonable rates. Good luck.

Thanks for the information. Due to the all the computers (and service codes) on the newer Merc cars, I guess we need to find a shop that can analyze that. I'll give Jimmy a call this week.

Yes I have - that's why I recommended him. He does not have all the same high tech equipment as a MB dealer, but he is honest and his labor costs are roughly half. Good luck.

We haven't been there yet. Did some work at Rahul a few months back. Everything is running fine for the moment.

Post Euro Tech Import in South Hills

I'd highly suggest Euro Tech Import Car Specialists on Saw Mill Run Blvd (aka route 51) in the South Hills, Brookline-Carrick area. I've been taking my CLK55 to Frank here for the last two years or so and I've been impressed with their straightforwardness, professionalism, and sub-stealership prices. For what its worth.

Euro Tech Import Car Specialists
1628 Saw Mill Run Blvd

I don't know. Rahul has been more $, but they have been the only shop that has passed my fiancee's test when taking in a car. She'll see what steps they go over and above the scheduled work to see if they really are looking and caring for your car. Been to German Motor Werks and the one east of PGH (I mentioned above). Both failed thus far. And honestly, they don't seem like nice people. One much worse than the other.

Cowell Automotive

I just took my G-wagen to David Colwell down in Hazelwood. I believe he worked for Mercedes for like 15 years and is a Mercedes specialist. He is a super nice guy and seems extremely knowledgeable. his number 412 422-0632.

I would have to give a nod to Foreign Fix on Steubenville Pike in Robinson Township.
They have been working on my ML320 since I acquired it and my XJ 6 for 4 years prior to that.
