This is a fine shop, especially for somewhat older Benzes:
2730 E. McDowell
Phoenix, AZ 85008
Another vote for this shop. Just dropped by with my car because I thought I had developing trans issues- I am from Seattle (Been in AZ less than 3 weeks) and just moved here and have zero experience with any of the local shops, heresay or otherwise.
I have never been to a shop where the owner actually respects the economic viability working on the car VS the usual deal / fight where they try to cram every repair and procedure down your throat based on what they think you can afford, right there and then- all of which while trying to scare the crap out of you.
Bud took the time went over my car, found and erased a bunch of old codes, lubed a few things and sent me on my way saying my transmission was basically showing it's age so leave it alone. He was awfully forthcoming with the overall condition of my car and spent quite a bit of time on it actually.
His shop also was very busy with customers, two of which voluntarily told me they have been using MB Motors for years, one for decades and without a doubt they were happy. It was almost like a clubhouse of sorts.
You don't get that at a shop where the customers feel threatened and worried about the bill....
I think I'm gonna stay here from now on. He definitely earned my trust.
