Anybody know of a good independent mechanic in the Lehigh Valley area of Pa. Allentown Bethlehem Easton Quakertown. Actually.. anywhere between Phila and the Poconos would be alright.
Thanks in advance

Unfortunately there aren't many, if any good MB mechanics in this area. This is why I do all I can myself and what I can't do, the dealer takes care of it (which is little to nothing).
What do you need done?

Hi Sergio,
I have some kind of oil leak in the top part of the engine. It's a 1997 E320. In the past I've taken the car to Keenan in Doylestown. Seems to do a good job but it's not the cheapest. Another mechanic I know said he would "give it a try" but I don't think I want that. What dealer are you going to? Is there a big difference from one dealer to another? I've only tried Keenan. Car currently has 74,000 miles. I thought maybe I could find an ex-dealer mechanic or someone like that in the area. I've heard of a few that do general "foreign car service" but I want specifically Mercedes.

Are you sure it's an oil leak? Around what area are you seeing the leak?
I go to R&S Imports, now Mercedes of Fort Washington. If I were you, I would complain loud and clear to the service manager. Tell him you don't accept that a 74000 mile car has an oil leak. Use the phrase "goodwill" and sometimes, if you get lucky, they will repair it at a significantly reduced rate.
