Here, Your Service Advisor is the Owner!

Because we’re not a huge operation, the person you talk to about your car is the owner. You get to know him, and he takes pride in knowing you, and your requirements.

Carlos Showing is well-respected as a person who treats those who trust their vehicles to his care as if they were family. You’ll immediately appreciate the difference between this and be dealing with conventional service managers.

This is natural because it’s his business reputation at stake if your satisfaction is not fulfilled. We thrive on your recommendation to others.

Here, you’ll find the treasured European traditions that have all but faded away with corporate interests at the helm of large modern day businesses. Pride, honor in a hard day’s work and responsibility live on.
Our primary reputation is that of a Mercedes repair shop, although we specialize in service and repair for all German cars – Mercedes Benz, BMW, Mini, Porsche, Audi, Volkswagen and also Volvo automobiles.

Are There Sacrifices in Choosing Us? Can Smaller be Better?

While their new vehicle is under a manufacturer’s warranty, most owners will naturally gravitate to a dealer’s huge service center, After all, the warranty-covered service and repairs are free! Dealer service centers have a captive audience. A few even act accordingly.

Once your manufacturer’s warranty expires, even if you have an extended warranty plan, the game changes. You are in charge of deciding who will service and repair your car. The choice is yours again.

Ask yourself, “Does a student in a huge class of 50 get a better education than one in a class of 10?” The same logic applies to servicing your car. The closer the supervision, the better for you. Small is better.

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!
