The Best Mercedes Service in Gainesville

Mercedes-Benz has a reputation for quality and so do we.  Smitty’s Auto Service specializes in repairing and maintaining the technologically sophisticated cars built by Mercedes-Benz.

Mercedes holds fast to old-fashioned standards of excellence while competing on the forefront of innovative automotive technology.   As do we.  Many people agree that Mercedes-Benz makes the best cars on the market, but everybody in Gainesville, FL agrees that Smitty’s is the best place to take care of your Mercedes-built cars.

What’s Different About Mercedes Service?

Mercedes has a special touch with cars: durable construction combined with smart technology and solid safety features make for a smooth ride.  Mercedes pioneered the integration of different systems in a car to create this luxurious driving experience.  When everything’s working as it should, system integration is a great thing.  But when one system fails, integration means that a single failure can bleed into other systems, making it more difficult to track and fix the source of the problem.  In other words, the incredible technology of Mercedes-Benz vehicles requires incredible technicians.

Smitty’s Auto Service has the skills to tackle sophisticated service and repairs.  We use state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment and Mercedes-Benz service techniques.  At Smitty’s, we know how to read and understand the information from every control module found in Mercedes vehicles.  Better yet, our Mercedes specialists understand the big picture of Mercedes engineering.  A proper diagnostic scan combined with our specific know-how results in quick and efficient service for you.  We are confident that we can accurately diagnose and fix any problem you may have.
