I haven't heard of them, but I stay away from these "we fix everything" places. I've been a customer of Autohaus for a while. I took my C240 in for new valve cover gaskets. When one of them turned out to have a problem, they replaced it for free under warranty. (I would have expected nothing less than that.)

I use the Foreign Service. They are the most fantastic place in the world. They really take their time to do it right. They also warrant their work for 2 years, unlimited miles. They also provide loaner cars. all are early 1990's 190E with close to 300k on the odomoter. They are close to Carmax in Raleigh. 919-787-1405 is their number.

I've taken my 300D to D&E several times. They replaced my alternator, repaired my injector pump, and also some other stuff. They also do my state inspections. Their prices are good too! I highly recommend them.

D&E came recommended to me by my neighbor who is on his third Mercedes. I used them for 2 pre-purchase inspections of W126 sedans. They were very thorough, pointed out defects in the first that caused me to reject the car; I bought the second 2 years later (good clean W126's are hard to find these days).

They've maintained the car for me since (4 years now) with no surprises and only regular maintenance and normal wear items already identified. Very knowledgable, honest, and reasonably priced folks. They've been at it since '83. All they service are MB, Honda, and Acura (mostly a Mercedes clientele).

I've been very satisfied and have no interest in going anywhere else.

Its not what's new that counts, its what's old!

My C280 has been taken to The Foreign Service for almost every repair over the last several years but today I took it to Autohaus. The Foreign Service always did excellent and thorough work, but they charge A LOT and the last few times and there is over a 2 week wait time for an appointment. Also they always talk to me like I'm an idiot - once they were convinced that I must have put diesel in the car and it turned out to be a camshaft sensor.

Autohaus was great. They were friendly and actually told me that my car *doesn't* need an expensive repair. And they quoted $200 less than the dealership for control arm bushings.

Sorry VOZ, I am not familiar with D&E nor have I ever heard of them before. If you are in the Raleigh area, I would HIGHLY recommend RAC for the best in general service, maintenance and repair for your Mercedes-Benz! Ask to speak with Gene and tell him you were referred by Ken from NEO.

Autohaus might be ok for older model repairs, but in 3 visits, I was just having parts thrown at the fuel system problem that I had. I also saw the staff in my car doing a traction control disabled hard start (after stopping in the middle of the highway) outside crabtree valley mall/taking the car on joyrides. I'm thinking that half of the videos you see like that on youtube are probably not the owner of these cars.

Leith Mercedes on Capitol not only fixed the problem in just a few hours for a fraction of the cost, but they also washed and waxed the car. Autohaus simply didn't have the correct diagnostic equipment (scoped optics in my case) to literally see that the problem was at the other end of the hose that they worked on.

I think that if you car is even near new, or a relatively prized possession, then there's no need to avoid the dealer.
