Any good MB Mechanics in Santa Cruz area?

Hi I'm new to the board but it looks like I will be purchasing a 1982 300D in the next few days. I was wondering if anyone knew of any good places for service and repair of this in the Santa Cruz area. Other places in the bay area would be good too but someone local would be amazing.

All I could find was Hayes European, they look good and have some good reviews but have no clue as to if they are good with the Mercedes Diesels.

Precision Mercedes

Circle Star Motors

These are in the soquel area near Santa Cruz. I think Circle Star is very good on the newer cars. I have my wife's 2006 E class wagon serviced there and Max, the owner, is great to work with.

Precision Mercedes I have heard is very good on the older cars.

Hayes European is an awsome place in Sta Cruz.

Henry has many years of experience on these old Diesels and on top of the new technology.


there were three HP ratings on the OM616...

1) Not much power
2) Even less power
3) Not nearly enough power!! 240D w/auto

Anyone that thinks a 240D is slow drives too fast.

We are advised to NOT judge ALL Muslims by the actions of a few lunatics, but we are encouraged to judge ALL gun owners by the actions of a few lunatics. Funny how that works
