Exclamation STEVE'S MB - Costa Mesa, CA - Orange County STAY AWAY!!!


I already knew this guy had problems, but I went to him last week out of convenience with my 1982 300SD. It was JUST PLAIN STUPID to trust this guy, KNOWING what a jackoff he is already from previous experience. I was overly anxious and wanted the severe engine shaking to stop so I brought him the car.

He's the mechanic, I'm the novice (though I read a lot) and I now believe that I know more about these cars than Steve does. He took me for a fool with so many stupid comments, and I just sat there and listened, smiling & nodding. After charging me $500 to make the car worse, he then proceeded to tell me that my engine was bad, that I had a bad cylinder, valves and probably a bad injection pump. NONE of which are actually true.

He had already screwed up my friends cars brakes, but since he's a "nice guy" and speaks English and is close by I figured "what the hell he couldn't possibly make this car any worse. Well, STEVE from STEVE'S MB managed to make a car with major problems run worse, and then lie to me about what could & could not be fixed on the car. He then explained why the car runs worse by LYING SOME MORE!

I took the car to Gonzalo at Star European on 17th St. and within a half hour he had diagnosed Steve MB's mess up (putting incorrect parts on the car, putting them on wrong, and price gouging on the job). I wanted some new motor mounts, Steve charged me $300 for Chinese cheap motor mounts, which don't even fit the vehicle!

Gonzalo did some adjustments on the motor and within a half hour the car was a different car. They worked on the car for an hour and didn't charge me a dime!

With the correct motor mounts next week I'm sure it will be even better. It's amazing to me what a scam artist this guy is and can come across so friendly, nice & honest. I can't wait to see him Monday morning. After getting the car back from him the transmission started having major shifting issues (Steve worked on the transmission too), major break squeaking, and worse idle than I took it in with.

If you live in Orange County go to Star European on 17th!
