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.

The Death of Diesel?

What is this all about?  Not so long ago, governments were advocating diesel cars being better than gas due to superior fuel economy.  Diesels are, generally speaking, more fuel-efficient than gasoline models and they do produce less CO2 - one of the main gases associated with climate change.

This diesel backlash seems to be affecting the second-hand market as well as demand for new cars.  You might expect older diesel models to lose value in the current climate.  The reason more recent cars are also depreciating faster is likely to have a lot to do with a general lack of enthusiasm for diesels and the prices of new and nearly-new models coming down.

At The German Car Shoppe we want you to stay informed.  No matter what the future holds we will continue being Denver’s choice for repair and maintenance of German cars.  We are proud of our ability to roll with the punches and pledge to serve you with quality work from our shop located at 5115 South Santa Fe Drive in Littleton.  Call for an appointment at (303) 798-2287.

Let’s Take a Look Before You Open Your Checkbook.

Buying a car can be an overwhelming experience, and buying a used car requires extra vigilance and preparation.  Focusing on five important physical categories before purchasing your next used car will help ensure you cover all of the most vital areas - and getting the best price…especially if it is your first German car.

Here are some things that we will inspect BEFORE you buy –

1.  The entire exterior
2.  Check all of the tires
3.  How does the interior look?
4.  The engine and transmission, of course
5.  The suspension and steering

We are The German Car Shoppe located in Littleton, CO.  Having your potential used German Car purchase completely inspected ahead of time could be one of the most important decisions you can make.  We will take a thorough look and give you our unbiased opinion.  Call (303) 798-2287 or stop in at 5115 South Santa Fe Drive.
