About Don Allen's Service Center - Alexandria

In 1974 the first Don Allen Servicenter was opened as an independent Mercedes-Benz repair shop with a focus on providing honest appraisals, delivering quality service as good or better than than the dealership, charging fair prices and making clients satisfied.


That focus has enabled Don Allen Servicenter to earn a reputation as one of the best DC-area European luxury car repair businesses that has spanned over four decades. We now have two locations in the DC area to serve you and provide repair and maintenance services for three luxury brands: Mercedes-Benz, Volvo and BMW.

At Don Allen Servicenter making your European luxury vehicle run just as the manufacturer designed is what drives us.

And we treat every car that comes into our shop as one of our own, which has led to the four principles that define who we are and why clients continue to work with us.

"I brought two Mercedes here (an ML500 and an E350) for repairs and maintenance for six years, after getting a referral from a retired Marine officer. I sought the referral after the nearby "Brand W" shop wanted $2,000 in repairs before the ML500 would pass inspection. Don Allen passed the car without repairs, and thereafter would steer me away from expensive repairs that weren't really necessary. An earlier reviewer said it the way I wanted to say it...imagine a family member in the auto repair business. If you have an aging Mercedes or BMW, there is no better partner to keep your car on the road. Be sure to check out the wall with all of the military officers who brought their cars here!"
"These people are honest, no drama. L"
"I have been taking several Mercedes to Don Allen's for 30+ years. All the people there (starting with Don Jr.) are of the utmost honesty, professionalism and expertise. And be assured the charges for their superb service are much more reasonable than the MB dealers. Just check out his many stellar reviews on Yelp and take your German or Swedish car to Don Allen's when you need service. Five stars are not enough for Don Allen Servicecenter !!!"
"Very knowledgeable, polite and professional."
"Hands down the best auto service in Alexandria! If you own a Mercedes or BMW take it here before the dealership. I've done business with them for years and have never once been disappointed. "
