Welcome to the neighborhood! I look forward to the proliferation of Giant Stars all over Metro Atlanta!
For those who haven’t been keeping up the latest MBUSA scuttlebutt, they have officially announced the move to metro Atlanta! The first temporary offices are expected to open this summer, with the major construction project to be completed by 2017.
This will move the US headquarters closer to our factory in Tuscaloosa and our shipping hub in Brunswick. How exciting!
When I tell clients that the vehicle they ordered is on the way from Germany, I usually add a disclaimer about “barring any catastrophe” it should be here in 10 days. This is that catastrophe! This vehicle transport ship was in danger of capsizing so they had to run aground to save it! Good news, no Mercedes aboard. However, it still turns my stomach to look at it!
With the holidays behind us it is time to look forward to 2016! Yes, 2016. I work in model years and we are already halfway through 2015! I can’t wait to see what amazing advances Mercedes-Benz will make in technology, safety and design.
It has been a great year. Thank you to all of my readers, clients and fellow enthusiasts! See you next year!
This beautiful new 2014 CLA250 was stopped in Atlanta traffic when a pickup truck plowed into the back bumper doing 60 mph! The first thing the driver heard after the accident was the mbrace operator asking if he needed help and the police arrived a few minutes later. He walked away from this accident with only a bruised forearm. The car however, is not looking so good. It was towed into the Atlanta Classic Cars Collision Center today and it looks scary! I am so glad that my client is ok…and he has already picked out his next Mercedes-Benz!
Atlanta Classic Cars is now an authorized Sprinter dealer! We have hired an experienced Sprinter service advisor, Sprinter tech and Sprinter manager and our first shipments of Sprinters are now available for sale! (They only come two at a time so it takes a while to build up an inventory!)
As a Sprinter owner myself I am a big fan and excited to be able to bring more people to this impressive addition to our fleet.
Take a look at the Sprinter website and see if you can find the perfect combination for your business or personal use!
Certified Pre-Owned Mercedes-Benz vehicles are an incredible value. They have been through a 165 point inspection, reconditioned, serviced and have an extended warranty. Now they are an even better value! Mercedes-Benz has just announced that they will have unlimited milage on the Certified Pre-Owned warranty! Please visit the Mercedes-Benz Certified Pre-Owned site for all of the fine print.
Here’s how this works…You get 5 years, unlimited miles of coverage from the original purchase date. So, if the car is 2 years old, you have 3 years and unlimited miles of coverage. Do you know someone who drives 30 or 40 or 50,000 miles a year? This would be the best thing that ever happened to them!
We also have Certified Pre-Owned special interest rates, payment waivers and included maintenance to sweeten the pot! Now is the time to act! Check out my Certified Pre-Owned inventory and let me know which one is calling your name!
I finished my 6th Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure this weekend! I want to thank Atlanta Classic Cars, my donors and my team for making it possible for me to walk in this important event. We are making progress in treatment, diagnosis and getting ever closer to the cure for this disease.
I will now be posting pictures and videos from around the dealership on Instagram! Please follow me and tag me on any of your Mercedes-Benz or Atlanta Classic Cars photos. I am @benzblogger and the dealership is @atlclassiccars.
Don’t worry, I’ll still be blogging! I am just adding to the experience.
Who doesn’t like to spend 33 hours in the car over a holiday weekend? Again, we were pulling a trailer through the mountains…The Sprinter normally gets better fuel economy! Anyone else have a great trip odometer to share?
