I was brand new in Eugene, just moved from Florida, and had a noise under the hood of my 1991 350SDL Mercedes during my trip from FL to Eugene. I googled Alex's Garage while in Texas, and his reviews were outstanding. I brought my car in the 1st day in town, on a Monday, and Alex had a new alternator in the car Tuesday! Very nice guy and glad to find a mechanic who can work on these old Mercedes! It was a concern moving to start with finding a Mercedes mechanic as good as the one I left, let alone, having to find a new one emergent, but Alex's Garage is all the reviews say it is.
