Has anyone in the AV ever tried the new place off of the 14 at Avenue I? Looks to be a pretty big operation called Antelope Valley Mercedes Benz.
You REALLY don't want to go to Antelope Valley Mercedes. Do a search on them and my name and you weill read just a portion of what I have been through with them.

New developments: My car is back at Alfred's this weekend because AV Mercedes did not tighten my calipers when they did my front end and one of the bolts came off again. Also, I had them to a R&R on the Diff which I did a DIY on last year and they didn't tighten the rear cover and it was now loose.

I am also having them put in a new oil level sensor too.

Current Stable:
91-560 SEC AMG - Coupe - 199/261 - 300 HP Custom Built Motor - Highly Modified Coupe. FOR SALE - PM ME
90-560 SEL - Sedan - 199/261 - Stock. FOR SALE. - PM ME

They just moved to that location from about a half a mile up the street. Don and Vicky run it. They are both good mechanics. I have a 98 SL500 and have been using them for a couple of years. Plus they took care of farming out the body work and everything after I had a wreck last year. If you are local, stop by and meet them. Wont take you long to figure out they are competent and pleasant to deal with. They keep my car running good and take time to entertain all my stupid questions, etc...
You must either be Don or Vikkie or a close relation.
BY FAR NOT THE SAME EXPERIENCE I MADE or even other's comments from around town.

Hi all: I am new to the forum and new to MB ownership but must recommend a place that I was "steered to" by my parts store (where I purchase all my American car stuff). This place is: Jack's Mercedes Service 12515 Pearblossom Hwy (138) just east of Littlerock. 661 944 9474 The place is not much to look at from the outside but Jack is an older MB trained, German mechanic who certainly impressed me. He shoots straight from the hip (I REALLY LIKE smoke and mirrors). He has a supply of older parts and smarts to get the job done well and reasonably. He has another fellow who handles all the electrical stuff...Manfred, who is also SUPER. They handled some work on my '91 300 CE-24 and I am very happy. I feel like I was treated fairly and honestly by both of these guys and am recommending them to the forum. I had the ignition lock assembly replaced and the SRS sensor replaced which involved some trouble shooting as well. Again, the place isn't much to look at from the outside but he's always busy but always friendly and straight forward. The results speak for themselves as far as I'm concerned...
