Newbie looking for recommendation of an honest mechanic
As the title gracefully exposes: I am a Newbie to Mercs.

I am quite involved in the maintenance of my car but due to combination of space/lack of tools/health I cannot do things on my own. It takes time to understand each car and my familiarity with the ins and outs of a Mercedes is limited.

Now I have been taken for a ride by mechanics before here (it happens a bit more often with me, since a foreigner face usually signals "unwary expat"), so I faced a few situations where I ended up dolling up tons of cash for what turned out to be nonsense.

If any of you can advise me of a good honest MB workshop where I can get specialized work done, I would greatly appreciate. Someone who would take it easy on the newbie not just in honesty, but also who sort of explains what is wrong and how to fix it and understand that customers like to be on board with what's going and might be even interested to watch, not just blurts out estimated amounts and treats you like you're wasting his time if you ask about different symtpoms or using different parts.

I will be moving soon to Bangsar South, so anywhere in MidValley/Pantai Hills/Bangsar/Old Klang Road/Kuchai Lama would be great, but other places nearby are also appreciated since this will be the specialized shop I'll go wherever is needed in KL or PJ.

Thanks,

Sam

Re: Newbie looking for recommendation of an honest mechanic
Hello soon to be neighbour,

I would recommend and Ah-Beng & Ah-Tee from City Cycle in Jalan Puchong. Did twice service : ATF change & engine oil change with all kind of filters changed. You can read all the comments in the directory link about it too. The road going to their place is bad & the workshop is hay wired with stuff for troubleshooting etc but after 2 times went there, it's really worth the money spent there.

Their address :

Description:
City Cycle Service Centre
Ah Tee & Ah Beng.
013-3607613, 012-3137277, 03-7785 0727.
No. 53 Jalan 9/152 Taman Perindustrian OUG,
Batu 6, Jalan Puchong 58200 K Lumpur

When you move to Bangsar South soon, you can take a short cut thru Kampung Pasir for closest path.Welcome to neighbourhood & enjoy the traffic in the morning!!..
