It is a beautifully designed car, and mileage was 87,000 when purchased in December 2017. I love the style and the way it handles, but was not aware of the complicated ABC hydraulic suspension system, which seems the most common general complaint of other owners of the MB 500 SL. When my ABC light came on during a trip to VA Beach, I was able to drive it back to Hampton, however upon researching, I should probably been towed. I made it back safely, and when I added fluid to the suspension it simply came gushing back out under the car. I called around and a good friend, and fellow MB owner recommended Autobahn Auto, which is very nearby to where I live. I drove the car over, and was given great personal service and attention by Buddy who apparently manages the desk and shop. Upon checking it out, I needed a major hose replacement. Autobahn handled it for me expeditiously and got me back on the road in 2 days. They were fair, friendly and Buddy even provided pictures of the work that was done and the rodeo testing afterward. I could not be more pleased to report and recommend Autobahn Auto. They will be my "go to" mechanics for all future service and repairs.

I called the dealer to see if they could tell me what the problem was and they advised me to bring the car in so they could look at it. BUT, also was told that they could not tell me anything without the car acting up. So I rode around for another month, praying not to break down on side the road - but I did. I was recommended to D & D Automotive. I called, made an appointment and took my car down to the shop. The owner diagnosed my vehicle and told me in less than thirty minutes, that my throttle body had gone in my vehicle. He ordered the part and my vehicle was up and running in less than 2 days! I would recommend this company to anyone!! VERY SATISFIED CUSTOMER!!!
