” 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 giving them a try and deciding for yourself!”
Anna B. - VERY HAPPY Hayes European customer!
