These folks are top notch! I have been bringing my vehicle here for service over the past several years and have always been very pleased. My service professional Mary makes sure that my auto is thoroughly checked, and then makes recommendations for repair I am always nicely greeted, and a replacement vehicle is always available. It is ready and washed when expected. There is not a more competent or friendly place to have your auto serviced

Dear Friends,
Please do not patronize RAB dealership! They are ruthless car sharks. The only thing they seem to respect and cater to are the ultra-rich richies of Marin. They practically said as much to me today. Here is my story: In 2002, I paid them all cash for my first new sports car. In 2006, I traded that car for a Certified Pre-Owned (first time I bought used) car that, it immediately became apparent once major stuff had to be replaced, was not up to snuff. Seven, yes seven, major repairs only 14 months later, after the car sat in their shop all week last week with a major electrical issue, I threatened to contact M-B USA and then surprise, the management at RAB was suddenly willing to talk to me. They offered to pay 100% of this latest very expensive repair OR to "replace" my car. Great, I thought, and went in with high hopes to meet with the general sales manager and find a new vehicle. Now, my current, troubled car is a high-end luxury vehicle, $100K new. RAB wanted to pay me $18,000 on a trade to get me to lease something else! When the Kelly Blue Book on the car is $35K. They said they don't go by KBB. ?! They sure went by KBB when they took my wonderful sports car in on a trade! After the smoke cleared, I decided to take back my fixed -- well, for now -- car. I am going to write M-B USA, just to let them know what kind of tacky people are selling their product. All they did was talk about the ultra-rich in Marin who can "afford" to throw money at problems like the ones this car has had. Really? Folks, don't get me wrong: I loved my first car, but it was because it ran smoothly. But after these latest shenanigans their "management" pulled, I am never setting foot in RAB again. They were ridiculous, talking to me like I had committed some offense when it was their product that was faulty! Like the other reviewer said, Used Car Salesmen Techniques 101. Smarmy. Stay clear.

If not, why not consider a trip to R.A.B. Motors in San Rafael? No need for Viagra here; you're sure to get screwed!

Despite the advice of friends and colleagues who warned me against doing business with them, I recently gave in to temptation and decided to purchase a vehicle from R.A.B. In retrospect, the incessant haggling and stereotypical "what'll it take to get you into this vehicle?" slimy car salesman 101 techniques that I experienced from the beginning should have been a red flag. As it turns out, it was indeed a harbinger of things to come. After purchasing an $80K luxury vehicle the handles like a 1976 Chevy Nova, I've spent more time in the service department than I've spent with 10 vehicles in 25 years combined. At last count, the vehicle was in the shop 3 times for the same problems, none of which have yet to be resolved. The last time they kept the vehicle for 5 days; when I picked it up, the car was filthy and the problems still hadn't been addressed. Several calls to the head of the service department and the head of sales yielded no results (unless you consider their "customer friendly" offer to buy the vehicle back for $18,000 LESS than the payoff).

Listen folks; don't make the same mistake I did. Take your money and your business to a reputable dealer. You'll be glad you did! And by the way, based on the engineering of the vehicle I'm stuck with, you might want to think about something other than a Mercedes Benz.
