    I had a check engine light come on this morning before my flight to Florida. The car was vibrating. I called the local Mercedes dealer/service department to see if I could be a walk in. I was told they could not see me before next week. I called Shade Tree Garage and spoke with their staff. I explained the issue and was told to bring car in so they could scan it to determine issue. I took it in a couple of hours ago and was greeted with the best reception and help. I left car and walked to store and was back in 10 minutes. My car was waiting for me upon return. All scans done and explicit information on the findings which dint prevent me from driving thereafter. The manager mentioned that my tires didn’t have caps on the stems and he put new ones on for me. Mind you I recently bought 4 new tires at another Mercedes dealership in NJ and that wasn’t even done. As a new resident of Morristownship, it was a relief to find this automotive shop. I will be going there from now on for services outside of manufactures recall. Lastly, the car bays are immaculate and the service technicians are engaging and not aloof. The last time I experienced this level of service was at the Palm Beach garage in West Palm Beach.
