Default Anyone who lives near Los Angeles area?

I have couple of idea.
1. It may good to us to assign one good dealer shop for group discount, better service.
2. It may better to meet offline sometime.
If one have mechanical knowledge, he can help others.
If one have good scanner, he can help others.

Any Idea.

North Orange County here.

I try and do most of my maintenance myself. But, I would love to know where to go in a crunch.

Palm Springs here but need to drive to Riverside for service as the local Mercedes dealer does not do Sprinters.

I recently went to Walters Mercedes and was treated great, price was fair, and they did a great job.

I think if we find a place we should all work with the same Service writer and let him be aware that we are a "group" . If he does well, he gets us all, if he does poorly we ALL walk as a group. He can either earn a lot of lose a lot.

I live Los Angeles, but i can drive up to 1 hour distant.
I think if we get at least 5 people, then we can poll best dealer, and one day we can go there to talk to the sales person about group discount.
Many of dealer have special service program for sprinter, for example 90,000miles service(chaining fuel filter,air filter.......) for $500
So We may be able to make 30% discount or more.

I live in Echo Park near downtown L.A. Count me in as a member of the group. The more we have in this group the better the leverage to get a deal at a dealership.

That said, perhaps we should try to find a non-dealer mechanic that specializes in Sprinters. There has to be at least one in SoCal? Perhaps someone who works on fleets? Presumably a non-dealer would be cheaper.

I'm in Rosemead, CA and I just want to know if people could tell me how much they paid for their Sprinter OTD and the options? I'm about to make my purchase. Thanks so much!
