Mercedes Repairs Southwest Houston Memorial Galleria Midtown

Today’s European Cars specializes in Mercedes repairs and servicing, as well as, BMW Service, Audi Maintenance, Volkswagen Repair,Volvo Service, and Mini Cooper Service  in the Southwest Houston area. We are located at 6261 Richmond Ave. in Houston, TX and have been specializing in BMW and Mercedes repairs and services since 1986 at the same location. Mercedes-Benz has engineered their cars to last with some lasting up to a million miles! But even the most sophisticated machinery needs periodic repair. Mercedes is notorious for expensive repairs and maintenance, and requires highly skilled technicians trained specifically for Mercedes to properly care for this type of vehicle. As with any automobile on the road, a shoddy repair job can lead to spectacularly expensive consequences, and potentially dangerous situations.

If you have a problem with your Mercedes you should either take it to the dealership or bring it to a local shop that has the proper tools and updated diagnostic equipment that your Mercedes needs. Everyone knows trekking all the way to the dealership can be time consuming, and expensive. However, their Mercedes technicians are highly trained and knowledgeable on Mercedes repairs, specifically toward the newer models. Dealerships tend to hold on to the codes for their new cars, so the scanners at the independent shops may not pick right up on exactly where there could be a problem. Also, if your car is still under warranty, then taking it in to your Mercedes dealership is recommended. If you are still not convinced the dealers will treat you and your pocketbook right, you have to choose an authorized repair facility for your repairs in order to keep your warranty.

If you have an older model Mercedes, finding a competent local shop for your Mercedes repairs can be extremely beneficial. These shops are often less expensive than dealers and they are capable of doing excellent work. When shopping around, there are a few characteristics to look for in a foreign repair shop. Make sure that the head Mechanic is ASE (American Service Excellence) certified. He must also have Mercedes-Benz training credentials if you are using them as an authorized repair place to keep your warranty. Mercedes-Benz mechanics undergo the most comprehensive and rigorous training program of any other mechanic out there.

Local shops who specialize in Mercedes repairs should keep the most up-to-date diagnostic equipment in order to be able to do the work right the first time. They should have access to the latest Mercedes computer software downloads since software runs and monitors most every system in a modern Mercedes and is updated regularly. If you have an older model, then the local shops are a really great place to go. They have more experience working on older models than the dealers do since most of their traffic is from used Mercedes owners.

The final thing to check for in a local Mercedes repair shop is for original parts (OEM). Mercedes parts are manufactured to strict tolerances. They are expensive, but are designed to provide a long service life for your Mercedes and should be used in all your repair work if possible. Aftermarket parts are less expensive and used for older cars. While there are many great aftermarket manufacturers, there are also inferior ones as well. Always insist on OEM parts if your budget allows, but if you go with an aftermarket manufacturer, make sure they have a warranty because not all of the parts come with one.

We are conveniently located in Houston TX just west of the Galleria, and service mainly the Memorial, West University, Mid Town, Heights, Downtown, River Oaks, Sugarland and Bellaire areas.

Mercedes Mechanic Houston Galleria West University Heights

Mercedes- Benz is a company that prides itself on luxury class automobiles held to the highest standard in appearance, comfort, and performance, so it’s no surprise that every trained Mercedes mechanic is held to a higher standard as well.Job expectations and quality standards for a Mercedes mechanic are much higher than with any other automotive company. In fact, Mercedes-Benz is the only manufacturer to have a Master Mercedes-Benz Technician program that truly delivers a luxury class education. So what exactly does this mean?

In general, when a person trains for certification in the auto-mechanic field, they will usually acquire their skills and certification through a reputable automotive repair school. This allows them to get licensed in various areas of car repair and maintenance. For example, within a certain auto shop you may find a technician that is ASE certified as a diagnostics specialist, while another mechanic may only have certification as an automotive service consultant. Only Master Mechanics have passed every field of study within the ASE curriculum. Only 33% of all mechanics are Master Mechanics. After acquiring ASE certification, the mechanics that work specifically on certain makes of cars will continue their training in a manufacturer-specific program, however, Mercedes is the only company that offers a Masters specific to Mercedes-Benz Repair as well as maintenance.

>Because of the level of training a Mercedes mechanic undergoes, their salary is higher than all other mechanics out there. The typical certified mechanic’s salary is roughly $36,000 annually in the United States, with an hourly pay of $16 to $20. A Mercedes mechanic can expect to make around $67,000, making up to $40 an hour depending on a variety of circumstances such as cost of living adjustment rates, product demand and employer policy.

It is not un-common to find an independent Mercedes shop that has specialties in other imports as well as Mercedes-Benz. A Mercedes mechanic is required to get regular ASE certifications as a mechanic before mastering in Mercedes which affords the skills they need to repair and service other types of cars as well.

Mercedes-Benz also requires proficiency in administration skills and sales within its elite training program. Opening your own repair shop that is professional and runs smoothly on top of servicing and repair work is not an easy endeavor. Mercedes trains their technicians for this type of challenge giving them even more of a leg up when it comes to training them for a successful future as a certified Mercedes mechanic.

At Today’s European Cars, we have 26 years of experience repairing import cars while specializing in Mercedes-Benz service and repair. Our technicians are also trained and equipped to work on BMW, Volkswagen, Audi, and Mini Cooper. We are located in Houston, TX at 6261 Richmond Avenue just west of the Galleria.

Mercedes Benz Repair Houston Certified Mechanic

Mercedes is one of the most high-value cars on the road today. With such luxury comes complexity so it is important that you seek out a qualified Mercedes technician for your Benz repairs who understands the intricate systems and special needs of such a high-performance car.

You have two options when shopping places for your Benz repairs. You can choose to go to the big boys at the dealership or the local boys at a smaller Mercedes repair shop. (Using a domestic auto shop is like using a veterinarian for a heart transplant, so that is completely out of the question.)

Choosing a local Mercedes repair shop can actually save you some cash in the long run on Benz repairs, parts, and services, if you know where to look. First, find a place that is large enough that they can afford to keep up-to-date diagnostic tools on hand. Cars today are continually getting more and more complex so it is necessary to have the proper equipment available to diagnose any problems you may be having with your Mercedes with complete accuracy. The worst situation to get into is having your mechanic guess what is wrong with your car. This leads to unnecessary repairs and parts replaced that may not have been broken. The second characteristic of a good local shop is certified technicians. Do they have mechanics on staff that are trained to work specifically on Mercedes-Benz? Benz repairs have a nature all their own and should only be entrusted to the experts. Another thing you will want to do is check the reputation of the establishment and there are several ways to accomplish this. You can ask around the neighborhood in which the shop is located, go online and ask other Benz owners, Google the repair shop’s name for any posts from satisfied or unsatisfied customers, and check with the Better Business Bureau to see if they are a member. Next, go into the place and speak to the mechanics themselves. It is okay if you have to make an appointment. This shows that they are busy yet professional enough to schedule time for their customers. Take a look around while you are there. A clean work environment reflects good work ethic and attention to detail. All of your Benz repairs should be done with OEM parts so a good repair shop should have access to factory parts and warranty their work.

Most import repair shops have scanners that can pretty much diagnose anything, but the dealerships do not let all the information out on newer cars so if your Mercedes is new, bringing it to the dealership would be your best bet if you are having a problem. The Mercedes-Benz mechanics there are Master Mercedes Technicians that have the best training of any other class in the world. The down side to this is you will definitely feel their hourly rate in your pocket book. But hey, Mercedes does everything they can to take the sting out by offering extra perks like free car washes, loaner cars, or posh waiting lounges to make you feel a little better.
