We know that finding a mechanic to service your prized Mercedes-Benz can be a challenging and sometimes stressful task. Do you trust them? Will they carry out the service or repairs to factory specifications? What products (oils, filters) will they use, and are the parts they supply Genuine?
These are just some of the thoughts that run through our customer’s minds when searching for a service centre that will maintain their Mercedes without the exorbitant costs of the dealership.
So what can be done about it?
We believe giving our young apprentices a fair go and training them alongside the best Mercedes-Benz mechanics in the country is a good start!
Did you know that we have over 200 years of combined Mercedes-Benz experience in our workshop? Most of our mechanics and Mercedes-Benz service specialists have been working on Mercedes vehicles for their entire careers!
I doubt you would find this type of expertise in any dealership in Australia!
He was in the top three finalists nominated for apprentice of the year, not an easy task to accomplish!
His passion for Mercedes-Benz runs strong in the family, having grown up around Mercedes autos. He worked hard to buy his first car, a 2008 W211 E280 E Class that would be the envy of any apprentice!
His favourite Mercedes is the 1997 CLK GTR, and his dream car is the C63 Black Series W204 Coupe! Great taste there, Calum!
You know that your mechanic is serious about his work when he invests over 30K in his tools! Calum is proud of his SNAP-ON tools, which have cost him a small fortune but will surely serve him well for years to come!
Experience comes from practice, and working on a difficult job was precisely what Peter Lennox felt Calum was ready to do.
Peter trusted him with this critical job, and we are pleased to report the E220 started up the first time and is now running better than ever!
Calum said the job required a lot thinking, referencing material and taking a step-back without rushing the work. He completed the job with only slight advice from Peter and the other mechanics, which is a testament to his training over the last three years at Peter Lennox Automotive!
Peter Lennox is doing his part in training the next generation of Mercedes-Benz mechanics, one apprenticeship at a time!
