What is great about C's Autohaus is what they didn't do; they didn't try to take advantage of me because I'm a Mercedes owner, which up until now, I thought was some kind of code for moron to repair shops. I'm used to taking my car in to a shop and having them try to sell me thousands of dollars worth of useless repairs with highly inflated part costs. C's Autohaus was able to diagnose that it was just the starter motor, and replaced it at a responable price. They were also able to find and fix an oil leak the same day at, again, a reasonable price, and they fixed some minor performance issues while they were in there gratis. After those repairs my fuel economy went from about 10 l/100km to around 7 l/100km (smaller number is better). The shop itself is pretty cool too. They have a lot of old VWs from the 60s and 70s on their lot which I'm guessing are project cars.

I eventually got some electrical help with it and that led to some suspension work I needed a couple months later and a timing belt when I hit 100k in my VW. I always go to sam, he preinspected a Jaguar I was thinking about even. Sam's shop is different, I thought I would be getting Bentley prices for my little v-dubber, but that's not the case. Very reasonable for what he does.

Bring it to the dealer and they will plug it into the computer and start replacing parts... sound familiar? Sam is excellent at diagnosing problems and coming up with the right solution. He is a craft mechanic who takes pride in his work and does it himself. There is no BS. His shop is in the heart of Cincinnati's Jaguar, Rolls, Range Rover and Rolls country. It never ceases to amaze me how many vintage cars have been shipped to him for repairs when I stop by his shop. MG, Triumph, Bentley's and classic Rolls... some from down the street.. but always a few that have traveled halfway across the country for their repairs and service.
