Lets see -
If I am going to get a lubrication service or something else pretty inexpensive,
I take my car to Hoehn Mercedes-Benz in Carlsbad (where I bought it). They offer
FREE MB loaner cars AND a FREE car wash with every service.
However, Hoehn can get expensive on major work. For that I think that Hans at
German Autowerke is by far the best (and most reasonable) Mercedes-Benz mechanic
I have met since I bought my first MB almost 7 years ago.
Hans did a pre-purchase inspection on 3 300D's before I chose the one that I
bought and put 100k on and THEN did another prepurchase inspection on my 95'
E300D which I bought (at Hoehn) and have since put 110k miles on.
He has done great lubrication, brake and transmission work. Again, he doesn't
offer loaner cars. If you are getting a lubrication service, I would say go to
Hoehn and ask for Paul Nelson, he is a great service adviser AND again, Hoehn
will wash your car for free.
If you are getting A LOT of work done, go to German Autowerke and tell him Jeff
B. sent you.
