2009 Atlanta Breast Cancer 3-Day Starts Tomorrow!

I am walking in the Breast Cancer 3-Day to benefit Susan G. Komen for the Cure this weekend. This is a 3-Day, 60 mile walk from Lake Lanier to Turner Field! My team of 6 women has raised nearly $18,000 this year!

If you live in the Atlanta area please come out and support us. It is like cheering on a parade! The list of official cheering stations is below.

GL450 Owner Atlanta Classic Cars Testimonial

Dear Jesse,

More than three years ago I walked out of … (another Atlanta Mercedes Dealer) … due to poor product knowledge and service, and drove 45 minutes to Atlanta Classic Cars. It is the best move I could have made, thanks to you.

Since then you have thrilled me with the purchase of my S550 and, most recently, the GL450. Your attention to details, expertise and service is unlike any other I have ever experienced. Thank you for caring so much about your customers, your dealership and the brand you represent. It all shows, and it all makes a huge difference. You are the competitive advantage!

My experience with you is why I continue to make that 45-minute drive for service at the dealership. You are personally representative of how every little thing works as it should at Atlanta Classic Cars. I’m sure your team is proud of you and for you. Please let me know if there is ever anything I can do to help you, as you have helped me so much. Know assuredly you have my business for life. On to the SL…

All kind regards,
Patrick T. Davis
Atlanta, GA

The 2010 E-Class Sedan and Coupe Have Arrived at Atlanta Classic Cars!

 2010 E-Class At Atlanta Classic Cars

They are here! Our first shipment of 2010 E-Classes arrived this afternoon. We received a variety of E350 and E550 coupes and sedans. They should be cleaned up and ready for sale within a few hours. Please come take a look at the latest and greatest from Mercedes-Benz! Be sure to ask for me when you come in.

Special financing at 4.9% and excellent lease offers are now available as well

2010 E550 Has Left The Building!

It was great to get a chance to preview the E550 while it waited to be picked up! The E-Class will return to Atlanta Classic Cars for a launch party on June 10th and the full-time demo should follow soon after. The current target date for US release is “late June.”

2010 E550 at Atlanta Classic Cars Today!

There is a 2010 E550 Sport on the lot today waiting to be picked up by a Regional Manager. It may only be here for a few hours. If you are in the neighborhood and would like to see it in person, give me a call.

It is Arctic White with Panoramic Roof. The Interior is Almond/Black. Premium 2 Package.

JD Power Customer Satisfaction Service Results at Atlanta Classic Cars

The good news keeps coming for the Atlanta Classic Cars service department! The 2009 J.D. Power Customer Satisfaction Index has ranked us 34th out of 335 Mercedes-Benz Dealerships in the US so far this year! It is great for a large dealership like us to break the top 10%.

We were ranked in the following categories. Scores are out of a possible 1000 points.
Overall CSI Index : 919
Service Initiation: 916
Service Advisor: 925
Service Facility: 923
Vehicle Pickup: 911
Service Quality: 918

Mercedes-Benz as a whole has moved up 31 points over 2008, to place 12th in the overall manufacturer rankings. Our goal is to be back at the top of the charts as soon as possible!

2009 SL65 Black Series Available for Sale at Atlanta Classic Cars

Our 2009 SL65 Black Series is now available for sale! This car arrived at the dealership earlier this month and is ready for delivery! It is stunning! The pictures do not do it justice. It seems to be about as wide as it is long – the fender flares are mind boggling! The interior is gorgeous with the contrast stitching and special gauges. It also sounds phenomenal!

Black with Black Interior – MSRP $304,350.

You can view more photos in my previous post from when the SL65 Black was first announced.

Mercedes-Benz Stars of Service Champions – Four Winners at Atlanta Classic Cars!

Atlanta Classic Cars Service Department

Joe Carpenter, Al Macaulay, Troy Metts and Bob Padovano of the Atlanta Classic Cars service department were named as round one winners in the competition to find the Best of the Best in Mercedes-Benz Service.

The first round of the U.S. competition was completed in March 2009. This round of the competition consisted of a very intense and comprehensive online test, and the 632 dealership employees who emerged with the highest scores were determined as round one winners! These winners represent the top 10% of technicians and service advisors.

Atlanta Classic Cars is very proud to offer our clients the best possible service from the time of the sale through the whole ownership experience. If you haven’t serviced with us before, it is worth the trip!

Pre-Owned 2010 GLK available at Atlanta Classic Cars!

Atlanta Classic Cars Pre-Owned Mercedes GLK350

– Update — This car is not available anymore. I just sold it.

We just purchased a 2010 GLK350 4matic for our pre-owned department.

Artic White
Black MB Tex
Premium 1 Package
Multimedia Package
Appearance Package
Trailer Hitch
1700 miles
In service date: February 9, 2009
Original MSRP was $44785

Sale price: $40,900

Or, for an extra $1000, we can make it a Certified Pre-Owned Car and it will have an extra year of warranty on up to 100,000 miles. A 5 year, 100,000 mile extended warranty on a new car would cost more than $3000!

2009 Atlanta Auto Show


The 2009 Atlanta Journal-Constitution Auto Show kicks off this weekend at the World Congress Center. I am scheduled to work in the Mercedes-Benz area on Saturday the 14th from 4-9pm. Come by and say hello if you are in the neighborhood!

Unfortunately, Atlanta is not considered one of the BIG auto shows and we will not have any of the upcoming 2010 Mercedes models on display (except the 2010 GLK which is already in showrooms). I am looking forward to checking out some competitors while I am there. Look for my photo comparison of the similar dash layouts in the updated Lexus RX and the Honda Odyssey minivan.
