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.

We have a lost generation of people who want to work in this country.  That generation, my son's generation, encompasses the last 25-30 years.  It is a generation of Nintendo, MTV, and doting parents who have spoiled them.  There is no work ethic here.  This was a generation of easy money, instant gratification, and a focus upon whatever "feels good."  We have no workers who want to do the dirty, hot, backbreaking jobs held by previous cohorts and consequently, this void is being filled by individuals who have no training or aptitude for the task at hand.  We live in an era where all decisions are price driven.  The lowest price wins, no matter the qualifications, competence, or experience that is available.  I am astounded at the people who entrust their Mercedes to incompetent individuals based solely on price considerations.  People, not mechanics, are doing repairs now and they have absolutely no qualifications to be doing so.  At The Benz Store we consistently see situations that have been exacerbated due to the incompetence of unqualified "mechanics."  To work on a newer Mercedes Benz, one must have access to the latest diagnostic software along with mechanics who are trained and have experience to correctly utilize and interpret diagnostic information.  These cars are not "tuned up," they are maintained and repaired as necessary.  For every Mercedes Benz owner whose vehicle is out of warranty, it is incumbent that they find a good MB independent who is qualified, honest, and charges a fair price.  If price is not a factor, then take your Benz to the dealer, otherwise find a good, independent repair facility.
