  • These guys are the epitome of professionals. I've been here a couple times before and I was very impressed. They are quick, efficient, and affordable. They get straight to the point and don't hold you up. Absolutely recommend.

    Very bad for business. Sent my Benz c300 and for 25days now, they still haven’t worked on it or even given me a call. I’m active navy officer and I’m shipping out soon, unfortunately I won’t be able to have my car on time for my sister who is equally back from active service in the army. Customer service from Tony is extremely terrible. In all, very poor service and don’t recommend this shop to anyone. You will regret it.

    Tony and his team have taken excellent care of our ageing S500 since we discovered them about a year ago. We had several bad trips to other shops, and City is head and shoulders above them. They are efficient, not overly priced, and, most imortantly, honest

    I have been using City Auto now for several years, after being referred to them by another local merchant in Hightstown, for a problem that other mechanics and the dealership could not help me with. And have been servicing my cars with Uppy and Tony ever since.

    They are always polite, professional, honorable and HONEST. Listening to the concern, uncovering the problem, and giving a recommendation for appropriate repair. Over the years they have helped me with my Mercedes, Infinity, Honda, Nissan, and Mercury. Everything from simple oil changes, flat tires, to more complex engine, drive train, suspension, and electrical issues. Always in a Professional, fair, upfront, and Honorable way. I have no problem referring then and always do.

    Tony and his team of experts diagnosed our 1993 Mercedes 300se after three independent auto repair mechanic shops and a dealership could not find a solution to our mechanical failure and suggested that we should put the car to rest. Needless to say, Tony's diagnoses, persistence and caring attitude found the trouble,repaired it and we have been happy ever since.City Auto Center lives by their motto "excellence in service", their prices are fair and we won't hesitate to have them continue to service our cars as well as recommend them to our friends and neighbors.

    Tony and his team of mechanics have worked on my car for regular maintanence and periodic MB issues for over 5 years now. I find this shop to be honest, reasonable and competent. Tony is able to identify problems with ease and coherently articulate the issues and how he plans to fix them and at what cost. He is easy to work with and is always ready to take a look at the problem right away. I was never sent back and asked to come back another time. I recommend the services at City Auto, Hightwtown, NJ. My personal experiences with the way they have handled my MB have been pleasant.

    After numerous visits to a dealership, tire changes and rim replacements and over $4000 spent on one problem that wasn't solve for god know how long we found City Auto and with in the first 5 minutes they found and solved the problem. With parts on the way and an appointment set, they fixed my 2003 C240 4-matic to a better condition to than what it was when I bought it. Long story short after replacing rear shocks, replacing a bad front bearing and an alignment and tire change later this car will last at least another few years. Best place to take any car you own very knowledgeable people and they really want to help unlike dealers and other shops.

    I own a 2006 c230 Sport Sedan with a 6 speed manual transmission. I have been to City Auto two times now, to have my A/C fixed, as well as a Service B for my vehicle. Both times I was impressed with the knowledge of the Mercedes brand. I trust these guys with my car, and City Auto has become my destination for all future work on my c230.
