MR MB in Tarzana charged me for work he didn't do, and then charged me again when I brought it back. He asked me if I had done anything to the injectors because they were loose. I had to remind him that the original complaint was teh smell of fuel and that now it was running bad AFTER he "fixed" it.
Make car worse - and charged me for each visit. Very sloppy and aloof. Sure, he is personable and has been doing it a long time, but he doesn't care and it shows in his work. I went to this place because of all the positive reviews online.
I consider this an unfair remark.
I have been with Enrique for several years, and he would never act the way you describe.
Enrique has a good way of analyzing problems before a repair is being made. Once a repair is on its way it's an economic and well planned action, and his bills are always fair.
I found him through this thread, and I'm glad I did.
The mechanic I had before Enrique with intention maladjusted the injector pump of my old diesel Mercedes so it looked like it was going to die, and tried to get the car from me for little and sell me one of his own used ones. For weeks I went from one mechanic to the next, and nobody knew what was going on. Enrique took just five minutes to find the problem, adjusted the injector, and the car ran better than ever before.
He also keeps a good balance on what to fix right away and what can wait (very good for keeping older cars running without paying constantly for repairs).
He has run his own dealership in South Africa and knows Mercedes inside out. So I can really recommend him to the members of this forum.
A reputation is built slowly over years of hard work, but it doesn't need any qualification to damage it.
