Experience You Can Trust
More than 31 Years in the Making.

Education is important. When you take a fine car to a mechanic, you expect that person to be well-trained and informed.

You’ll find that here with us. With hundreds of hours of formal training, apprenticeship, and on-the-job learning, we stay current on the knowledge it takes to service your car, with manufacturer training and advisories. We are a Bosch authorized service center and a member of the Automotive Service Councils of California.

We also use the finest diagnostic equipment
For example, we have recently heavily invested in and installed the industry-respected Autologic diagnostics system for BMW vehicles.

We also are state registered with the California Department of Consumer Affairs in accordance with The Automotive Repair Act of 1971.

But experience is equally important! It takes years of practice in the real-world to achieve the perfection you seek in a trustworthy caretaker for your fine vehicle.

There isn’t a better shop.

There isn't a better shop to take your Mercedes/Vehicle to be repaired.
Their repair techs are master mechanics & so are Carlos & John. It's not uncommon to see Carlos & John working on vehicles also, Carlos the owner/operator & his manager John operate a first class automobile repair shop! They go above & beyond the normal standard of a repair shop. They really run a first class operation & customer service is #1 with these people. They take the time to explain all your options you have before they start work on your car. They take the time to explain in simple terms what is wrong with your vehicle & your repair options. DONE THE RIGHT WAY THE FIRST TIME! They also do their best to keep your repair bill the lowest possible. These people are HONEST, DECENT people. You can't do better then bringing your VEHICLE to EUROPEAN AUTO REPAIR. First class all the way!
