Quick, reasonable service! Kudos!


Price was more than fair & work was done to my satisfaction & was done while I waited.


Service was easy to schedule, and the mechanics went "above and beyond" to make the necessary repairs to my car.


I came in because my heating system was not working properly. The cause was diagnosed and the repairs were made. The result was that the heating problem was solved to my satisfaction.


The service was great. I do think the new owner has a bit of a problem estimating when the car will be ready, but I'm sure that will resolve itself the longer the business is open.

Questions Answered by Uptown Auto Repair
Most commonly, Mercedes S Class suspension leaks from either the struts or the suspension valve assembly. If the whole body is lower, very likely that it's either the compressor or the valve assembly. If one particular section is lower (eg. front left/the whole front), then it could be a hose or strut(s). This is a particularly expensive repair, but I highly recommend you get it done because the leak causes the compressor to work longer and harder than normal and will lead to premature failure of the compressor. Hope this helps.
Is there a noise that follows or hits at the same time? Does it happen when you first accelerate or in the middle of accelerating? It could potentially be the transmission but it could also be any number of suspension parts or engine/trans mounts. The best way to get a legitimate answer is to have it test driven by a mechanic though.
Sounds like the accessory fuse blew. That would be fuse #12 under the hood in the fuse box. However, this commonly occurs with a short to one of the accessories it's connected to. This could be the antenna motor, cruise control switch, etc. Simply replacing the fuse may not be good enough as it will blow again the second you turn on the car. But give it a try. If it doesn't work, a technician will have to trace the short.
