My wife received a 2002 Mercedes CLK as a gift from her aunt. It had an oil change at the dealership right after receiving it, after which we were given a list of suggested maintenance. There was very little explanation and no transparency in how they arrived at the list. We declined everything and started driving it as a weekend car for a year. We brought it to Ellio's for a check-up and received a very detailed explanation of all the maintenance that could be done, along with what really should be done immediately and what could be delayed. They explained the measurements made and the tests they had done in order to arrive at their recommendations. They considered its use as a weekend car instead of a daily driver. I feel like we got much better advice at Ellio's about how to take care of our older car. We chose to have the needed work done at Ellio's and I feel very confident in the results. I am happy to be bringing our car back to Ellio's next time.
