CA, Los Angeles / Sun Valley

I had my 1984 500 SEC transmission rebuilt here and so far am very pleased. The car shifts like new, zero leaks now, and received a 2 year unlimited mileage warranty.

They are good people that like to talk Mercedes. I had my car flat-bedded to them, received a quote from them via e-mail which matched their phone quote, told them to go ahead and perform the work, then was called when it was ready (right on schedule). The final bill was exactly what I was quoted, down to the penny, with no added on charges like some shops.

The owner, Marc, has posted all his prices on his web page and will ship most anywhere in the USA from what they told me.

The Quonset WWII stile building won't attract the cappuccino / latte crowd, but the quality of their work speaks for itself, and prices are reasonable.
The have been around for a long time.
I deal with many Sun Valley area mechanics on a daily basis, and have yet to hear anything negative about them.
Good shop.

Sun valley mercedes closed down a couple months ago. there is another mercedes dismantler across the street and a couple hundred feet north on the same street. but they aren't very 'nice' to deal with. I once asked them if they had the aluminum brembo calipers from 500sl/500e. they had no clue what i was talking about, claimed it must be an AMG part, and then ignored me till i left.
