I was shocked how honest and knowledgeable this mechanic and owner of Mr MB Enrique is . I take my 2000 S class there as well as my SL500 . He does many small simple repairs and checks things without charge while the dealer takes an arm and leg .
Ive been going to this guy for about 2 years now and while parts for Mercedes may be expensive this guys labor rate take the bill to down to where its reasonable . I feel like an idiot paying dealer rates in the past . All they care about is upselling and profit where Enrique cares about his customers and doesn't rip off people with high prices like the dealers ALL DO ! Like the article here in LA weekly I highly recommend everyone with a Mercedes to avoid the dealer and give this guy a try . You will be happy you did .
