We are equipped to handle almost any repair that would normally need to go to the dealer, including items such as Mercedes-Benz TRP parts. If you have ever been told you needed to go to the dealer for something, PLEASE call us FIRST!

We are located just off of Hwy 16 in Denver, NC and just minutes from I-77, Charlotte, Birkdale and other Lake Norman areas.

Many shops claim "state of the art" equipment, but nothing tops the original factory equipment. We use aftermarket diagnostic equipment for quick and easy tasks and use the factory Mercedes diagnostics when the job calls for a more powerful tool. We perform all levels of Mercedes service and repair, from routine factory maintenance to advanced diagnostics.

    I moved to Charlotte from California and I have been to a few Mercedes-Benz repair shops and was not happy. I must say I was very pleased with the service that I received at Autohaus Lake Norman even the waiting room was nice. Bernard was very courteous and helpful in letting me know what I needed and did not need regarding my repairs.

    I plan on making Autohaus Lake Norman my Mercedes repair shop.

    Great work at a fraction of the cost of taking the car to a Mercedes dealership. My car had leaking hydrualic seals in the cylinders for the convertible top, which is a known problem. Instead of replacing with all new cylinders (total of 12), Autohaus Lake Norman was able to get them completely rebuilt with all new seals. Just as good as new, and will last just as long. I plan on keeping this car for many years to come, as it is in excellent condition. It will never be serviced or worked on in any other shop than Autohaus Lake Norman. I am extremely glad I found them, and saved thousands doing so.

    These guys do fantastic work. Friendly, thorough and efficient. They know the product well and take the time to understand my concerns. I would not hesitate to recommend Autohaus Lake Norman to anybody, even my non-Mercedes driving friends.
