Information about the Heating System in your Porsche.

Knowledge is power.  Don’t let someone confuse you with mumbo-jumbo about the heating system of your prized Porsche.  The heat exchanger temperature sensor automatically controls heat distribution into the passenger compartment.  In your Porsche the sensor is installed inside the left heater duct next to the transmission.

On 1984 and 1985 models the sensor is found behind a trim cover in the headliner between the sun visors.  If your Porsche was manufactured anytime after that the sensor is then fitted in the dash behind the small grille.  I know, it’s minutia, but then isn’t everything about the care and maintenance of your Porsche about attention to detail?

Knowing what makes your Porsche or other German model car tick is the job of the aptly named German Car Shoppe located in Littleton Colorado.  We have serviced German Imports with pride and precision for decades.  We will be there to service your pride and joy when you need us.  Just call for an appointment at (303) 798-2287.

Check with us…We’ll check it out.

What we mean by that is simply this.  When you are thinking about buying a pre-owned German car why not let us fully inspect it first?  What greater peace of mind could you get than letting us at The German Car Shoppe thoroughly inspect any vehicle you may be looking at before you decide to pull the trigger?

It seems simple, but it isn’t always.  A qualified mechanic needs to be able to analyze then credibly justify any opinions or recommendations that are filed in his report.  Credibility and experience are paramount.  Obviously, the credibility of knowing what potential problems to look for, but also are they just doing this to “get my business”?

At the German Car Shoppe, we hope that you will trust us for all of the maintenance that ever needs to be done on your pre-owned German vehicle.  Our mission is NOT to start tearing your prized beauty to pieces, but rather have you enter into the purchase with your eyes wide-open.  Please stop by our Littleton location and call ahead for an appointment at (303) 798-2287.

Buying a Used Benz.

If you are in the market for a nice, reliable, and prestigious used car why not consider a Mercedes Benz?  Consider this, for the price of a new Accura, Optima, Kia, Chevy Malibu, or Ford Fusion you could soon be behind the wheel of a low-mileage amazing certified pre-owned Mercedez Benz!

One thing about buying pre-owned you have let someone else take the depreciation hit of simply driving a new car off of the lot.  A used Mercedes has the benefit of advanced features not found in most cars.  The ride is a smooth as a magic carpet.  The look and the feel can only be described as luxurious.

It all comes down to this…would you rather be driving around Denver in a Mercedes Benz?  That’s a no-brainer!  When your Mercedes needs regularly scheduled maintenance, or any emergency repairs we hope you know where to take it.  It’s The German Car Shoppe at 5115 South Santa Fe Drive in Littleton.  Call for an appointment (303) 798-2287.

Ready, Set, NO!

It’s a no go.  Your German Car will not start in the cold weather.  You know that it’s coming soon to a Rocky Mountain near you.  So, before it does, we at the German Car Shoppe in Littleton, CO can check your car’s electrical system, and if necessary, replace a battery, a starter, or a smart key.

If it is just the battery, that is rather cut and dried.  It could be the fuel line…the main cause of a faulty fuel line leading to a dead car during winter is water.  If you are using the wrong oil, we will discover that real fast.  For new vehicle models, the carburetor is usually NOT part of the reasons why a car will not start in cold weather.

Whatever the reason a great car decides to poop out in the winter we will troubleshoot it now to avoid the problem later.  We are the German Car Shoppe serving the needs of foreign and domestic vehicle owners in the Denver area for many years.  Stop by our shop located at 5115 South Santa Fe Drive in Littleton or call ahead at (303) 798-2287.
