Silver Star is the Gold Standard when it comes to customer interface which is almost non-existent these days. Joseph or Walt would call to keep me updated on progress accessing a hard-to-find steering rack and shock mount upgrade kit. And I was pleased with the very fair total cost but mostly the level of communication. Thank you so much.

James Edward Batterden III

Silver Star came to my rescue in a heartbeat as I pulled in with a low pressure tire warning on my Mazda 3. Without hesitation, they looked at my tire, removed the screw and plugged the hole for a whopping $21! When I walked in, I was impressed with Joe and Terry’s friendliness and can-do attitude, showed to the very comfortable waiting room and offered a beverage – wow! They should be named GOLD STAR – total professionals, clean shop and office. Couldn’t have been more impressed – thank you!

Beverly Wright

I had a somewhat unusual problem which the local Benz dealer had deemed “major surgery” with a cost to match– but Team Silver Star tackled it with ease and at a fraction of the cost that the MB dealer svc ctr had quoted. Manager Joseph Hall, Jr. is a seasoned Professional– who clearly hires only the best technicians– and is very friendly and knowledgeable; offered excellent recommendations for additional issues, but wasn’t at all “pushy” about any that that I declined. He personally COMMUNICATED every important aspect of my repair via e-mail and text (ie. IN WRITING) so that there were no “surprises”– SO rare in the private garage world! TWO THUMBS UP for ALL owners of older (ie. Off-Warranty) imports– especially Mercedes-Benz, BMW, Saab, or Jaguars of any age 🙂 I’ve also PURCHASED high-quality used cars from them in the past, and can vouch for their Sterling SALES approach, as well.

Joseph W Kirby

The men at Silver Star are the best! Seriously exceeded all my expectations and made sure I was taken good care of. Very honest, very personable.
Walt, you’re the bomb!

Kelsey P

I just wanted to say Thank You and Great Job to the guys at Silver Star! They have worked on numerous of my cars including my GL 350. They know their stuff and I trust them to get the job done right and much more reasonable then the dealership. Joseph Hall, the service manager, treates everyone right and really know his cars!

Warren J Heising

These guys have kept me safe and on the road for years now! Plus they know how to take care of their customers, thank you Silver Star crew!

Jennifer McNatt

My husband and I recently purchased two “new to us” Saab’s and we brought them both in for service. Joseph and the team were extremely helpful and gave both cars a full review so we know what service to prioritize. They are able to get parts very quickly and provided a shuttle ride for my husband. Terrific service, fair prices, and quick turnaround. We are new permanent customers!

Robin Smith

Great service, parts department was thorough and helpful. Patient and explained things vs. rude and rushed to get you off the phone like most other service centers.

Sandy Harrison

These guys are attentive, thorough, and efficient. Best car service experience! Every employee is accommodating and actually cares about you and your car. Good people. From what I understand, this is a family-run business. Maybe explains why their service is so important to them. At any rate, this is a business I support and will continue to use.

Bettye A. Keyes

These guys are awesome! After being told that my car would NOT be serviced due to not having 100k miles, I called Silver Star and made an appt. Once I arrived I knew that my car would be in great hands! From the greeting, to the breakdown, even when I picked her up… I was informed of each step by Joe. They even washed and vacuumed my car! I’ll definitely be returning here for service on my BMW.

Mr. Troy

Excellent response time and very personable staff. First time taking my vehicle to this shop – definitely will be a return customer. Would’ve given a 4.5 rating if available.

Mr. Martin

It is hard to find right mechanic for cars. I do like these guys, they know what they doing and no pressure on suggestion, which gives me power of ownership. I used go dealership and paying lot more for services, and now feel much saving with same services. They are my mechanic for my cars!!!

Mrs. Young

I own BMW M3 and SL55 AMG and trust me I took my time to find great and honest mechanic shop! Silver Star is a great shop!

Mr. Keyvan

These guys rock! They really know my car and its quirks and keep me informed about what it needs and how to get it done.

Mr. Thomas

Outstanding service as always from Joseph and his team.

 Mr. Mitch

New Customer. 2005 Saab 9-3 Transmission Service. Price was less than quoted. Very nice, spacious waiting area. Did not have appointment but they squeezed me in. Very professional service writers.

Mr. Mark

Mr. Keyvan

Joseph and team are the essence of outstanding customer support ensuring complete satisfaction with every service appointment.

Mr. James

Awesome staff and great service. They have accommodated me and my last minute requests.

Mr. Fidel

Joseph did a great job explaining to me the process to acquire a new key and allayed all my concerns. He also did a great job on advising me on how to remove all the door dings on my 540 and the car now looks like it just rolled off the showroom floor. Overall, I am very satisfied with Silver Star’s service and would highly recommend them to anyone.

Mr. Quang

I was a call on for an 18 year old XK8 with a balky top. The service guys fit me in promptly and as promised made the top work like new. The service was prompt, reasonable, and friendly. I since went back for another item that was handled in the same manner. John Y.

Mr. John

The best, on time and detailed, expert analysis, reliable and better than factory results. I come from two states away.

Mr. James

Exceptional in all aspects. Great communications. Never any surprises. I have been a customer for over fifteen years. They have maintained two Mercedes and one Jaguar for me. I highly recommend this group.

Mr. Terence

Excellent Service.

Mr. Joe

I have been going to Silver Star for years and they are so trustworthy, knowledgeable and have excellent customer service…the BEST!!! It is a blessing to deal with very honest people who really care about their customers!!! A huge thank you!!!

Ms. Linda

Excellent service and staff! Very friendly folks and even have an associated license facility on the property. They performed all service on time, within their estimates and even provide pick up and drop off service if your vehicle will be in their shop for an extended period. I highly recommend Silver Star Service Center.

Mr. Tony

It’s always a pleasure to hand the keys over to Silver Star. Joe is kind enough to give me a full rundown of what is recommended, and gracefully adjusts to my wishes on any particulars. I don’t recall ever having to come back for a ‘re-do’ , and I esp like the full rundown of the condition of various systems that may need attention before long, or down the road. Other import owners tell me the same about Silver Star. Thanks guys! A huge part of owning a high line car, XJ in this case, (or any car), is the comfort of knowing it’s getting proper care. I can drive it gently and keep it clean, but I’m glad to rely on you for turning wrenches.

Mr. Andrew
Mrs. Majorie A.

The service department has always taken great care of us and any of our vehicles we have brought to them. Joseph in service is knowledgable and straight forward with estimates, timeframe etc. I would highly recommend Silver Star for all your import car needs and services.

Mr. Steve

Quick at getting me in for an appointment. Were very communicative about repairs being done. Work finished in a timely manner. Will definitely be using Silver Star again.

Dr. Zach

Silver Star staff are always courteous, informative, and helpful. I recently had some major work done on my BMW and the results were like getting a brand new car back. Not bad when the odometer registers over 130,000 miles.

Mrs. Arlene/Dan

I always get great honest, advice from Joe and his staff and I appreciate this very much.

Mr. Mitch

Great job and great customer service!

Ms. Shryl

The team at Silverstar gave us great customer service, and we will return with our other car. Kirby Rowe

Mr. Kirby

5 Stars is warranted for the great service.

Mr. Franklin

Excellent and thoughtful service group. Among the best auto mechanics I have interacted with in more than 40 years of car ownership.

Dr. Don

Silver Star has always had the best interest of their customer/client with honesty, knowledge, service, and professionalism. I have been a customer/client for over 25 years.

Ms. Betty

Silver Star has kept my 1986 Mercedes 300SDL in top condition for 15 years. They have caught several potential problems early which precluded issues with a breakdown on a trip.

Mr. Joe

Found Silver Star service to not only be very good service providers but also excellent staff !! Friendly, very detail oriented and through. They also do registration and inspection. Can’t praise them enough !!

Mr. Tony

What a Staff! The Quality of Work!!!! Unsurpassed!!!! These guys are the best and talk about informative.. If you have not used Silver Star, you are doing yourself a dis-service!!!! Thanks for all the great work!!

Mr. Greg

ALWAYS take care of me as if I was their mom!!

Mrs. Michelle

Always professional, provides explanations and other options available.

Mrs. Diane

Excellent honest and fair. Diagnosed my problem and fixed it right the first time. I will call on Silverstar for my future auto service needs. Thanks

Mr. Charley

Service was exactly as planned, thank you

Mr. Frank

Having owned BMWs for over 30 years, I’ve dealt with a lot of service centers. Often my post-service feeling is that I’ve been somewhat had – with extras, additional costs, etc. I don’t get that feeling at Silver Star. They seem fair, thorough and reasonably priced. They’ll tell you something to watch out for … rather that turning that observation into an immediate service upsell.

Mr. Lynn
Mrs. Joelle

Efficient and great service experience every time. Thank you Silver Star!

Mrs. Patricia
Mr. Richard K.

Silver Star has been maintaining my 1993 Mercedes since 2001; it is still on the road running and driving like new. They maintained my 1998 Jaguar through 168,000 miles. Now they maintain my 2009 Mercedes. I would never go back to the dealer. They are always available to take the car without a four or five week wait. They will let you know of issues before they become problems. They provide you options and explain why they recommend work or not doing work. They are less costly than the dealer and they provide a much better experience. They don’t provide free loaners but they are so much less costly the rental might as well be free.

Mrs. Linda

Friendly and responsive. Had to have tires changed fairly quickly. They fit me in with minimal wait. Their valet driver was great in driving me home and picking me up…

Mr. Albert

Silver Star surprised me with how quickly they serviced my car, did a great job and saved me money. Pretty impressive. I will be returning for more maintenance.

Mr. Gary

Best BMW service and expertise in Maryland.

Dr. Don

This organization does a wonderful job in making sure there are no surprises. The give an accurate review of what the problem might be and the estimate is generally spot on. The staff are friendly, helpful and accommodating.

Mr. Dan
Mrs. Majorie A.

Silver Star went back through our previous records and found we did not currently need some things we requested as this maintenance had already been done in the past. This saved us quite a bit of money and unnecessary duplication.

Mrs. Gail

Silverstar is a great organization that I learned about recently. I wish they could service all of my cars but taking car of my European motor cars in such a fashion makes me happy. It is a family run business and you can immediately see the benefits of working with them. Very highly recommended.

Mr. Dan
Ms. Carolyn

excellent service – as usual !

Mr. Charles

Everyone at Silver Star has been courteous, fair, helpful and easy to work with each time I have one of my two vehicles serviced. I have a limited retirement budget, and the Silver Star team has helped me decide what is important NOW, and what can wait on for service when I have questions, problems or hear noises that I question on my vehicles. I feel I am trusting my vehicles to my own sons. Thank you for the years of service.

Mrs. Michelle

Silver Star is all about Customer Service. They learn your needs and restraints and work to make certain that your car is taken care of to your specifications. Great team to work with.

Mr. Skip

Consistently great service!

Mr. Keith

Excellent service will be back for all of my car service needs Laura Benso

Robert Lopez De Victoria

As usual, your team provided fantastic service when we brought our Saab wagon in for service.  Your service is the reason our wagon is running smoothly and efficiently.  Your Silver Star team consists of true professionals:  you stay in constant communication with us about our car during the service and provide us with detailed information so that we can make informed decisions.  We really appreciate your shuttle service, which makes using Silver Star very convenient.  Your shuttle drivers are very courteous and timely.

Jeff Coleman

As always, Silverstar took care of the service on my E320 with attention to all the details!

J.B. Arnold, MD

These guys know the Mercedes and BMW brands, and they provide excellent maintenance and service at prices WELL BELOW the dealership service center’s price!  AND I receive a comlimentary wash and vacuum of my 5 series at each visit.  Instead of Silver Star, you should be called FIVE STARS!!!!!

Carol Katz

As always, you guys rock

Steve Cann

Did the job as described with no problems encountered. Great service! -Phil

Phillip Barber

the secret to maintaining a Mercedes cost effectively is to have a good mechanic. I have 2–a 1997 and a 1981–and I’ve been based in three states since acquiring the 1981. Once you find a good MB mechanic, it’s a lot less expensive to maintain the car in great condition. Silver Star is my choice for Maryland.

K.M. Bowie, MD

The key to cost-effectively owning a Mercedes is to find a good mechanic who knows how to keep it in great shape without simply jockeying parts. I bring both my Mercedes–a ’97 and an ’81–to Silver Star.

Kurt Muller

thanks for taking care of me on such short notice.  I know it was just a simple Spring cleaning type service but you guys always follow up with me.  thanks again

Thomas Shriner

Tom, Joseph and the rest of the Silver Star team are friendly, knowledgeable and honest in dealing with you and your automobile. You can count on them to give you a quick,honest and reasonable estimate of the problem.  They have saved me hundreds of dollars on the work they have done on our 2001 BMW 325i.  I would not take my car to anyone else and I would definitely recommend their services to anyone looking for a great service center for your vehicle’s needs

Steve Cann

Silver Star consistently provides outstanding service.  I can always trust Tom and Joseph to do the right thing for my two Mercedes Benz vehicles. They are honest and up front.  As long as I own my cars I will be a Silver Star Customer!

J.C. Millersville, MD

I was pleased with the efficency of the service visit and I have confidence in the work that was done.  Nevertheless, $363 for a “well baby visit” seems like an awful lot of money.

Barry Koch

Awesome service from dedicated professionals. I would gladly recommend my friends to Silverstar.

John Hoban

All work done well and timely.  Did a good job explaining potential future repairs needed on our aging Mercedes.

D.N. Serverna Park, MD

They took good care of my aging BMW dreamboats. Even tracked down European parts suppliers. Kept me informed of progress all along. Quality workmanship.
I ABSOLUTELY understand how they have almost five stars. I brought in a 1990 350SDL with a turbo that wasn't building boost. I was told $250ish for diagnosis and that's perfectly fair... People should be paid for their expertise.Turned out to basically be what I thought it was, waste gate was stuck open and an easy fix.What I didn't realize was that that diagnosis fee also included a thorough inspection of my old Benz. And I now have a list of all the things that need my attention over the next few months.100% recommend
Great customer service..would recommend him to anyone. Every car me and my sons have took, he has fixed..chip is a very honest man and I'm thankful for what he does..
Excellent, Superb, Honest, Knowledgeable, Professional, Reliable…the very best for automotive services…that is why I have been going to Silver Star for over 10+ years. I feel so confident in knowing that I get the best services and prices from Silver Star. I always rely on Joseph and his team that are highly skilled, responsive, knowledgeable and professional. Just to know you can always count on Joseph and his team to be honest and trustworthy is worth everything and I greatly appreciate it more than I can say! My husband has been in the car business for over 45 years and he feels so confident in having our Mercedes serviced and checked at Silver Star for the very best price! Bravo and many thanks to Joseph and his team!!!
Silver Star is attentive and thorough. We found them when others couldn't figure out how to fix AC in our mercedes. I wish they would work on my FORD FLEX!
