Is your Mercedes trip ready? Find out today!

Timely car service and preventative maintenance now
can save you money and aggravation!

Services A to H for your newer
Mercedes-Benz, Sprinter, and Smart
using the recommended service sheets.
For the older Sports, Sedans,
Coupes and G-wagen models are
provided to exacting, quality standards,
try us.

******

A major reason why several Mercedes owners
have became first time and repeat customers
is our family members take the time
to listen to you explain your
Mercedes, Sprinter and Smart needs!

**

A second major reason is some customers
have had their vehicle repaired
at a generalized auto repair shop
where the training was not specialized
for Mercedes mechanical and
computer electronic equipment.
These shops used diagnostic equipment
that was not able to review the needed
the electronic modules on the
vehicle's Cable Area Network(s)
resulting in inaccurate diagnosis and repairs.
PS. Ledbetter's does it right.

******
