  • I have been going to Mahida before he got the new shop on Western. He has been in the family for more than 10 years and all I can say is that he is the best when it comes to fixing cars. He knows what he is talking about and advises you in a professional manner on what to do and how to handle it. Plus the price is reasonable for the work that he does! I wouldn't recommend anyone else besides Mahida. Very professional and helpful. Tell him Kris sent you and he will take care of you.

  • If you have a Mercedes, Volvo or BMW you can't find a better place to take your car. I have been taking my Mercedes to Mahida for 9 years. He was a former chief mechanic at a Mercedes dealership. He is the most honest, reputable and knowledgeable car guy I have ever dealt with. He uses factory parts, but about a 30% less expensive than the dealer and his labor is reasonable and very good.

    Several times he has recommended work not be done because it wasn't needed. He has done many little things (change a bulb, charge the battery) for free.

    He is the best. Does great work. Give him a try. You will NOT be disappointed

  • I've been going to South Bay Euro Car since my warranty ran out with my Benz a couple years ago. Their prices are way better than the prices at the dealership. They use all the same Mercedes standard parts, but charge a lot less for labor.

    Mahida is always super friendly and very professional. Unlike the workers at the dealership where it seems like everybody's a salesperson, Mahida is honest and very good at explaining things and I don't feel like he is ripping me off just to make more money. When I go to the dealership, they are always telling me about more things that are wrong than what I went in for and I don't know whether to believe them.

    I will continue bringing my Mercedes here til the end of its life.

  • My Mercedes had been running a bit on the sluggish side. I was referred to Southbay Euro Car by a friend. Eddie, my technician was able to diagnose my issue right away. He suggested a cleaning for my fuel system to improve the cars over all performance. The cleaning was just what the car needed to get up a running smooth again, I'm very happy with the results.

    I have been a customer of SouthBay Euro Car longer than I can remember. Mr Mahida and his staff worked on my Volvo for many, many years. When it was time to replace the Volvo, I wasn't concerned about my next vehicle, EXCEPT that I wanted a vehicle that I could have serviced at SouthBay Euro Car.

    The exceptional service has continued with my Mercedes. This is a shop that I can trust. Mr Mahida will give you recommendations on service that should be completed as soon as possible, as well as service that can wait until the next service call. He allows the customer to make the decision, and there is never any pressure. When replacing items in the service, he offers to provide you with the items that he has replaced, which reaffirms his honesty and trustworthiness.

    I will certainly be a customer for life - I can't imagine going anywhere else to service my car. I recommend this shop highly to anyone. You will NEVER regret coming to this establishment!!
