Recent Reviews of Local Santa Cruz Hayes European Customers

We pride ourselves on our loyalty to our customers, and our customers keep coming back!


Eric R.,

Santa Cruz

The price was excellent, but more importantly, the customer service from Brian was awesome! He let me know I also needed a brake flush (something the last shop I had taken it to not but a few months ago neglected to tell me) and quoted me for it. He also took the time (at 5pm on a Friday afternoon) to price out service for my girlfriends car as well, as well as inspect the brakes for her!

Needless to say, the customer service alone is worth going here, but their prices for working on BMW’s (i cant speak for others, but I would assume they are just as good) are fantastic! You can’t go wrong, even if you are just asking them to check something out for you. I highly recommend them, and while I hope I don’t have take my car to the shop anytime soon, I certainly won’t mind when I do.


Anna B.,

Santa Cruz Mercedes
Owner and VERY HAPPY
Hayes European customer!

I recently bought my first Mercedes Benz. I love my car but was VERY concerned about finding a good Mercedes service center. Sometimes women can get taken advantage of when it comes to auto service and repair so I always struggle with finding someone honest. Hayes European might be the last honest luxury auto service center on the planet. It’s such a relief to have a Mercedes Specialist who is honest and doesn’t create repairs in order to make more money.

If you are considering taking your car to another Mercedes specialist, I encourage you to compare the service, cost, honesty and integrity of your shop to Hayes by simply giving them a try and deciding for yourself!
