I currently have a BBB and Napa suit filed against this service center. I have a 2002 Mercedes ML320. I’ve had this car for years. It’s my baby and I recently had had some intermittent air conditioning issues. I work in Marietta, so I was looking for a service center nearby. After going to Jennifer (manager) I was told they would take care of the car no problem. After having the car for a week, I was told it needed a new fan clutch, so I ordered one from FCP Euro (European parts supplier). I gave it to them to install and got a call a few days later. During this call, I was told it needed a new fuse box. So I ordered that as well. I delivered it and they said they would have it buttoned up in a few days. Two weeks goes by and I have called twice and heard nothing in return. I then show up and am told the car has electrical issues and was botched. I was also told that only mercedes could repair the car. After the washed their hands with my car, I paid them 650 for nothing and picked the car up. I go to pull out of the driveway and every light comes on in the dash and the car shuts off. I get it to my office where I have a friend inspect it to find the fuse box isn’t screwed in and wiring harnesses are hanging everywhere. I call and speak to Jennifer and she asked for me to drop it back off. I dropped it off and they tried to pin my new fuse box as the issue. So I had them install my old one back and told them to diagnose the issue with the ac since it still wasn’t fixed. At this point I have filed a complaint with NAPA (corporate affiliate). I was told to leave my car with them till it gets resolved. At this point they have had the car for other a month. I was told they were ordering the parts and would get it taken care of. Now it needed a new compressor and harness. I wait a week for the pricing on that and get nothing. So I called earlier today and was told the part couldn’t be ordered. I told them I was coming yo get the car. After getting the car home, I got up under it to find the compressor was unplugged and the wiring harness was frayed but fixable. I got some electrical tape and plugged it back in and all was well! So after 650, 2 months, and lots of of frustration, I’m beyond upset. I’ll continue to fight the battle on my end, I want to warn you. I picked this service based off its great reviews. But these reviews are not what I experienced. Please stay clear of this service center because not only are they going to rip you off, but they are going to tear up your car too!

He said he would be swapp my engine out with a engine close to the same miles I had on my car. So I agreed to have my engine changed. This would have been a good time to tell me that it's only 30 days on a used engine. but he did not disclose this information to me. He went and got the car emissions done and told me he had been driving my car and it was running fine. Two days later and paying 4081.00 I pick my car up it seemed fine. I wasn't able to test drive the car because of Covid the DMV was closed. so it was close to three months until I was able to get a tag for car. I finally got the tag and drove the car, I noticed a pull from the car when I put the car in drive, it snatched into gear. I took car back and the mechanic RL adjusted something on the engine so that took care of the problelm. Still didn't informe me about 30 days for a used engine. I drove the car for two weeks and the car is surging and smoking from the tail pipe. I call R.L to tell him what's going on. He says bring the car in. I had a video of what was going on with the car. I informed R.L I got advice from another mechanic and was told this is because coolant is getting into the engine which point to a bad head gasket, and the surging could possibly be the air intake control valve and the problem was engine related Which R.L agreed that it probably was the IAC and he would have fixed it "IF" he knew it was bad He then suggested put 20 w 50 in the engine. I called another mechanic and told them what my car was doing and what advice I was giving from RL. And was told to ask for the paper work on the engine. I have not received no information on the engine he installed in my car to this very day. And putting 20 w 50 was not going to solve my issue. So I take the car back because of the surging and mind you it's still smoking. I also was getting water in the trunk so R.L looked into these issued and charged me 80.00.I was told by R.L that my Power steering rack need replacing and he would fix my IAC for aprox 1100.00 dollars. This has been the worst experince with this shop. My car is sitting unable to drive. I gave him ONE star because a rating was required. He deserves 0 stars. We'll end up in court I'm sure.
