I have a 99 mercedes benz SLK-230. I had been taking it for service to the Mercedes dealers in the area till the extended warranty expired this year. So, I decided to search around to find something cheaper than a dealer but reputable and found Larry's Auto Works. They seemed to have a very high rating online, and this is my effort to rate them as they should be. They are 50% to 100% more expensive than even the Mercedes Benz dealers (San Francisco). Please avoid them.
I wanted a service B done. They called me to tell that I should replace 2 tires, replace battery, change all the belts and do a brake fluid flush. I agreed to the last two while noting the high charge for them. Then I researched around and found that even the Merc dealors charged much less for exactly the same service. I had no option but to pay when getting my car back, but noted my complaint.
Brake fluid flush (parts+labor)
Larrys - 42.84+158.20 = $201.04
Multiple Merc Dealers in the same area - $99
Renew drive belts (parts+labor)
Larrys - 97+195.60 = $292.60
Multiple Merc Dealers in the same area - $225.60
