If you're cool like me and drive a Mercedes Benz, then you NEED to know about Ara and MBZ Auto. Greatest auto repair shop ever. My car, because it is a Mercedes, doesn't need work often and when it does Ara knows everything about it and his work is 100% right the first time and the price is right. His actual price was once even lower than his estimated price. Has that ever happened to you? I didn't think so. And MBZ Auto is clean, clean, clean. Also I drive an older 190e, but Ara treats it (and me) like it's a CL65 AMG. It's because of MBZ Auto that I only want to drive Mercedes and not mess around with BMWs or Audis. So go ahead, buy that Benz you've always wanted and don't be afraid because Ara will take care of you.

I can't say enough good things about Ara. After searching for an affordable but still reliable Mercedes mechanic near where I live and work, I came across MBZ Auto on yelp with one review. I took my chances and gave Ara a call. I had previously gone to Westwood Mercedes (who I would highly reccommed for Westsiders) for my car issues but a new job forced me to search for someone who was closer. And I couldn't be happier! Ara is very thorough in explaining what is wrong with you car which is a relief as a woman who thinks every mechanic is trying to give you a run for your money. Give Ara a call, you won't be disappointed!

Woohoo! MBZ Auto in Glendale is as good as it gets for Mercedes Benz Service. I used to take my CLK 320 to WI Simonson and Calabasas Mercedes. Forget it! Unless you have 2 hours to wait while they get your car. Ara the owner, is what pride of ownership and workmanship is all about. I haven't needed to do more than scheduled maintenance, brakes and tires, until recently. Thank God I found Ara. Now at 120k miles, my car has recently needed several services from front end work, crank sensors, and bits and pieces. He's around the corner from my office, so I can drop my car off in the morning, and be at my office all within 15 mins. At the end of the day, my car is ready- someone from his garage picks me up! Even though it's been painful needing so much work in a short amt of time, Ara's pricing is always better than what I would expect to pay, and he always explains and demonstrates exactly what he's done. His shop is immaculate. Everything is state of the art. Thank You. I would go out of my way to take my car to MBZ. I feel blessed that I don't need to do that : ) Now, if he'd only work on Land Rovers : )

If you're looking for A+ service & repair at a reasonable price, MBZ Auto Service is the place to go. Ara, the owner, is a certified and trained Mercedes Benz mechanic, and I trust him with my 2005 CLK 320. During his complimentary assessment, I like how Ara explained what needed to be done and WHY. Sure enough, I crossed referenced this info with friends (experienced car mechanics) and Ara was spot on. Last but not least, Ara checked in with me two days after the repair to make sure everything was okay. I'm definitely coming back!

I love my Mercedes! I don't love expensive Mercedes repair bills and maintenance costs, and I've been to a few local mechanics over about 10 years, and three different Benz. I took my old Mercedes CLK to MBZ Auto Service about a year ago, and recently serviced my new C Class Benz. Great service, clean shop, friendly! Wanted to express my thanks on Yelp! Basically, if you live in Glendale, Burbank, Pasadena, Studio City, Downtown, etc, has you covered.

I found ARA when the side mirrors to my car got stolen. Not only was he helpful but he was truly sympathetic to what I went through. He even made sure that it never happens again by "securing" the mirrors.

ARA always makes sure that I understand the work that needs to be done to my car. He actually cares that I know my car as much as he does by taking the time to show me how my car works and how to take care of it! Who does that?! He's fair, delivers top notch service, courteous and just the nicest guy you will ever meet! Most importantly, he will make sure that you pay a fair price for the service and parts.

Don't go looking around for a good mechanic! Go to the's ARA at MBZ Auto Service!

(Ara, see what happens when you feed me pastries? Haha! See you in a month or so for my Service B).

After going through the torture (financial and psychological) of a service repair by my local Mercedes Benz dealer, Calstar Motors in Glendale, I found MBZ Auto Service and Ara, the owner of MBZ Auto Service. Finally, an honest and knowledgeable Mercedes repair facility! Clean and comfortable shop, lounge and people! I came to find out that Ara is a multi year certified Mercedes Benz trained mechanic. Completely thorough and to the point, my ML55 received the repairs required and only the repairs that were required! WOW, what a nice surprise. Not only was my Mercedes serviced and the repairs completed on time...Ara took the time to go over my complete car on the rack with me from the front to the back including tread left on the tires!!! Now, the best part...the cost of the repair was 40% less than the above mentioned dealer! I instantly became a permanent customer of MBZ Auto Service. MBZ Auto Service even provided transportation when I had to leave my car for repair. I trust this shop, the owner and the parts are genuine Mercedes. Ara's expertise in Mercedes Benz care and maintenance is astonishing. One more thing...I have been back twice due to a dash panel warning light and installation of wiper blades and left the shop knowing that Ara backs his work with word. I made a substantial investment when I purchased a Mercedes and now I am going to have MBZ Auto Service keep it on the road for me for the entire time that I own the automobile! I have an extended warranty on the Benz and the company that I purchased the policy from recognizes this shop for all approved repairs! I highly recommend this company, this shop and this gentleman.
