I live in Santa Monica. please counter me inI 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.
Im pming you.Hello all
I've been reading this forum for years and just now discovered that there is a regional section. I am located on the west side of Los Angeles, near the 405 @ La Cienega.
I've had great service from the sprinter mechanic Mike @ Dependable Dodge in Canoga Park. But sadly Mike has quit the business and changed careers.
I don't know who has replaced him.
I've used an independent shop in Burbank. A 2nd Generation family business called Muller's Mercedes Burbank. Walter Muller has been a straight shooter so far and he's maintaining a small fleet of T1N's for a friends company. unfortunately He doesn't have a lift to handle the Sprinter but can do most anything needed without it.

Walter has done basic maintenance on my 04' T1N and replaced my radiator.
So far so good.
Im approaching 100,000mi and I am planning a whole host of preventative work. I would really like a shop closer to me that Burbank. Here are the issues I'd like to address with a local mechanic or other local owners...
-Replace Harmonic Balancer
-Replace all belts
-Repair leak in roof ( rear AC unit )
-Brake pads & Rotors
-Replace Glow Plugs
-Re-paint entire Van
My T1N Wagon is my daily driver and "long term camping van project"
My kids love it. Can't say enough about how much I like this van and i am hoping to connect with other enthusiasts in my area.
