Post CA, Paradise

So, I've found this sorta diamond in the ruff. I was turned on to this independant mercedes shop just up the hill from Chico, CA in Paradise 2-3 years back called "Ernst Mercedes Specialist". I've never been so impressed, I mean I've dabbled in auto repair myself (actually had some training in college) and have a sense of good engineering, which is part of why I got a Benz in the first place and am able to do a lot of my own basic repairs, but I've never found a more knowledgable or honest shop anywhere, and I've been to repair facilities all around the north state including dealerships in the Sac area and Courtesy in Chico, even the bay 'cause I wanted stuff done right. Not only is Ernst's labor rate cheaper, or even the fact that they use OEM parts, or can do anything a dealership can, or that they check your whole car out when you bring it in for an oil change or an A or B service, etc. (they even checked the air in my spare tire!). Its that its a small family buisness trying to do things the right way and not rip people off, but with all the tools and technological resources of a dealer. Greg, the owner worked for Mercedes for over 20 years and still works and is trained on everything at least up to '06. He's taken the time on every repair to show me whats failed and most importantly why. He even gave me a first time customer discount. Its the only place I'd tell my mom to drop her car off and trust that it was safer than it left and with no bull.
