What is an automobile? Is it a mode of transportation, or is it an object that defines our personality and who we are? For most of us, it is a combination of both. However, there are variables that influence the decision about which make and model we will drive. The cost of acquisition and maintenance, in most cases, is the limiting factor. Often times, the maintenance consideration is neglected. Our objective is to educate and provide a facility which makes owning a high calibre vehicle, such as Mercedes, possible.

    It is amusing that often we get calls from customers pricing oil changes – fundamentally showing how totally disconnected people are with the concept of car maintenance. How much do you think you will save by comparison shopping? The cost of quality parts and oil do not differ more than 10%, so you may save $5 - $10 at the most by shopping around. From a businessman’s point of view, an oil change is a losing proposition when it comes to our bottom line, but it is important in getting the customer in front of us and perhaps getting a new customer, if you want them. As a business, who is your competition? Dealers, other independents, Jiffy Lube, the customer’s brother-in-law? Maybe your competition can compete by putting in a substandard filter and oil, or not changing all of the oil, or not changing the oil at all! The point is that to maintain your Mercedes, you must find an independent who is competent, and fair, and one that you can trust. The relationship between the customer and the repair shop must be one of trust – how that trust is earned is the subject of another blog. But, if you do not trust your repair facility, you should find another. If you trust your mechanic and can communicate this trust, then you will always get the better pricing and the business will go the extra mile, and work harder to make sure that you are a satisfied and happy customer!

               Our goal is to repair your car in the most expeditious, economical, and competent manner possible. We approach every repair in a manner that takes into account your budget and the safety of your car. Multiple suggested repairs are prioritized with safety in mind and the projected repair that is most important will take precedence. We want to keep your car safe and operational, so that you will continue to be our customer. This means that we  take additional time  to inspect certain systems on your car to make sure that the repair we do is the one that will keep your car on the road. If your car is brought in for AC repair, but you have a serious brake problem and you only have a budget that will get one fixed, you must address the safety issue.

               Our prices for parts (OEM – Original Equipment Manufacturer) and labor have always been, in most cases, below the prevailing rates, and we take pride in doing a professional job. We gain a sense of pride from repairing your car and we enjoy doing so. The Benz Store has the most recent diagnostic MB software on site, and we are capable of diagnosing the most difficult problems. We have considerable experience in older Mercedes, especially Diesels, so if you have a vintage MB we can accommodate this need. Let The Benz Store provide the personal touch in repair as well as parts. Thank you for your consideration.--Ken
