Purchased a previously owned 2010 Mercedes GL 350 SUV w/ all the Bells & Whistles from a Navy Capt. Checked in w/ "THE M~B Dealer" on basic charges for service calls/ Maintenance. Visited European Autoswerks w/ the same questions. There is ABSOLUTELY NO COMPARISON in COST$ . . . EURO AUTO (E~U) had lower prices, Factory Trained Mechanics & a great FRONT OFFICE CREW & LOUNGE. With unusual "QUIRKS" in Mercedes complex systems, E~A actually PROVED to be S U P E R I O R in PERFORMANCE, QUICK PARTS AVAILABILITY, S U P E R B QUALITY CONTROL(QC) of CRAFTMANSHIP . . . & now has LOANER CARS available in emergency situations. My rating of the ENTIRE E~W Operations from the Owner (Jordan) to the Mechanics, their great LOGISTICS System, the FRONT OFFICE ===>THIS is the ONLY PLACE I T R U S T with maintaining my wonderful Mercedes . . . !0 STARS from this Navy Retiree !.
