Great service. Take my E-Class for service there and does excellent work at a great price.
Xavier and team are awesome! I had my S4 brakes replaced and my wife's C300 service done here, and I couldn't be happier with the quality of work and the price. I had grand plans of doing the S4's brakes myself, bought the parts and never seemed to find the time to get the job done. Benzworks had no issue using the parts that I brought in and never tried to tell me that they weren't going to work properly, or sell me on additional parts or services. I've owned a dozen German cars, and while the dealer always does good work their prices are ridiculously high. This shop does the same quality work at half the price , plus Xavier is an honest and sincere guy. He's a pleasure to do business with - something I can't say about most dealers. I highly recommend Benzworks for any German car services you might need. We have found our new shop!
Brought my car here broke down with an advanced electrical problem. This shop was very clean and punctual, and didn't charge me an arm and a leg for Labor. I have a Scion Xb so shops usually charge waaay too much. They had my problem fixed in just a day at a fair price, I recommend going here to anyone looking for quick work with a fair price.
Did you know in the NW Suburbs alone there are over 1500 mechanic shops in IL. Out of those mechanic shops, there only about 110 that are recognized Mercedes Benz repair facilities. This place is awesome.
I was really impressed. Dealer quality work w/o the cost. Good place to go to get your car repaired.
Friendly, prompt service. Reasonably priced. My personal banker sent me there to get my battery checked and recharged...for free. I had my oil change and tire rotation done at the same time. Much cheaper than my previous service provider.
My car was fixed fast and the information provided was great!
Honest and highly professional people. We were kept well informed of options, procedures, and status. The owner negotiated a better parts deal (after we had signed the estimate) and the difference was given to us, saving us a substantial amount of money.
- According to recent studies, 5 percent of all motor vehicle fatalities are clearly caused by automobile maintenance neglect.
- The cooling system should be completely flushed and refilled about every 24 months. The level, condition, and concentration of coolant should be checked. (A 50/50 mix of anti-freeze and water is usually recommended.)
- Never remove the radiator cap until the engine has thoroughly cooled. The tightness and condition of drive belts, clamps and hoses should be checked by a pro.
- Change your oil and oil filter as specified in your manual, or more often (every 3,000 miles) if you make frequent short jaunts, extended trips with lots of luggage or tow a trailer.
- Replace other filters (air, fuel, PCV, etc.) as recommended, or more often in dusty conditions. Get engine drivability problems (hard stops, rough idling, stalling, diminished power, etc.) corrected at a good shop.
- A dirty windshield causes eye fatigue and can pose a safety hazard. Replace worn blades and get plenty of windshield washer solvent.
- Have your tires rotated about every 5,000 miles. Check tire pressures once a month; let the tires cool down first. Don't forget your spare and be sure your jack is in good condition.
- Check your owner's manual to find out what fuel octane rating your car's engine needs then buy it.
- Keep your tires inflated to the proper levels. Under-inflated tires make it harder for your car to move down the road, which means your engine uses more fuel to maintain speed.
- Lighten the load. Heavier vehicles use more fuel, so clean out unnecessary weight in the passenger compartment or trunk before you hit the road.
- Use the A/C sparingly. The air conditioner puts extra load on the engine forcing more fuel to be used.
- Keep your windows closed. Wide-open windows, especially at highway speeds, increase aerodynamic drag and the result is up to a 10% decrease in fuel economy.
- Avoid long idling. If you anticipate being stopped for more than one minute, shut off the car. Contrary to popular belief, restarting the car uses less fuel than letting it idle.
- Stay within posted speed limits. The faster you drive, the more fuel you use. For example, driving at 65 miles per hour (mph) rather than 55 mph, increases fuel consumption by 20 percent.
- Use cruise control. Using cruise control on highway trips can help you maintain a constant speed and, in most cases, reduce your fuel consumption.
- Keep your engine tuned. A fouled spark plug or plugged/restricted fuel injector can reduce fuel efficiency as much as 30 percent.
- Inspect the engine's belts regularly. Look for cracks or missing sections or segments. Worn belts will affect the engine performance.
- Have the fuel filter changed every 10,000 miles to prevent rust, dirt and other impurities from entering the fuel system.
- Change the transmission fluid and filter every 15,000 to 18,000 miles. This will protect the precision-crafted components of the transmission/transaxle.
- Inspect the suspension system regularly. This will extend the life of the vehicle's tires.
