Accurate is suppose to be good and they know Mercedes. Otherwise Executive Auto in Green Bay off of Waube lane is great. But they do not do alignments in house, Accurate does. I would stay away from Page Auto. They do good work, but they will find 100 other things wrong and insist you do them or they will not do any work. But if money is no object, the Page Auto it is. They are also in GB.

I am actually taking mine to Bergstrom. I had a bad experience at Accurate. Plus I will spend the $100 minimum needed to qualify for free roadside assistance.

Jasons Imports

I have a 74 450SEL and when I have a repair I cant fix myself I take it to Jasons Imports 8120 W. Layton Av. Greenfield,Wi. 414-281-6693. The mechanics name is Nick and he knows his stuff. Labor rates are reasonable but he will only use original MB parts "no aftermarket crap" so repairs can get pricy. Estimates are a $100 but wavied if you have the work done there. I hope this helps.
