Looking for a Mechanic for 1981 Mercedes 407

Hey guys,

we are currently still in the States but so far there were not a a lot of mechanics who wants to deal with old diesels so we thought mexico would be better: we are looking for a reliable place/person to check our van. We dont have any major issues, just want to make sure that it stays that way!

any tips / recommendations are welcome!

Where in Mexico are you guys?

Not many diesels in Mexico… and the Diesel on the mainland is sh*t (not Baja)!!

If you have a VW there’s a very famous mechanic in La Paz (Baja Sur) called “Geraldo’s VW” and they do diesels

Otherwise check on iOverlander. We went to a mechanic in Ensenada and they know they’re on the app. They’re honest as they know it brings them other people !

Definitely cheaper South of the border.


not there yet, heading down there in a week or so and will travel all over!

Hey Sam, thanks for your honest feedback! I actually follow you on instagram, love it!! :slight_smile:
We dont have a VW, its a mercedes but maybe we’ll check the one in ensenada, definitely sounds good!
