1.9% Financing Up to 66 Months Available on Certified Pre Owned Mercedes Benz Vehicles During June 2011

Special finance rates for Certified Pre Owned Mercedes-Benz vehicles have remained the same as May for the month 0f June 2011.

1.9% Special APR finance rates are still available for C, E, M and CLK models… we have a glut of C, E and M class CPO cars at the moment. Used car inventories have been growing recently, as more and more people are trading in their one or two year old cars and buying new ones in order to take advantage of historically low new car finance rates.

We have two CLKs in stock at the moment that qualify for 1.9% APR, a convertible and a coupe. See all the rates in the table below:

Class Model Yr 24-36 Months 37-48 Months 49-66 Months
C 07, ’08, ’09 1.99% 1.99% 1.99%
E 07, ’08, ’09 1.99% 1.99% 1.99%
M 07, ’08, ’09 1.99% 1.99% 1.99%
CLK 07, ’08, ’09 1.99% 2.99% 3.99%
GL 07, ’08, ’09 1.99% 2.99% 3.99%

Mercedes Benz Competitor Conquest Program! Save Up to $1,500 If You Own One of These Makes…

Do you currently own one of these makes? If so, you can save up to $1,500 on a new Mercedes-Benz!

That’s right… the Mercedes-Benz Competitor Conquest Certificate Program for the month of March 2011 is in place!

**The Competitor Conquest Program is active through the end of October 2011, click this link for details! This article was written back in March of 2011, discounts are BIGGER in October 2011 Click this link for new info on the most up to date program!**

So.. how does the Conquest Program work?

If you currently own and have a valid registration for any model from these manufacturers you qualify! BMW, Audi, Porsche, Lexus, Acura, Infiniti, Jaguar, Land Rover / Range Rover or Cadillac. If you purchase or lease a new Mercedes-Benz vehicle you will be eligible for  $1,000 towards that new 2011 model Mercedes-Benz. If you are purchasing or leasing a CLS or E Class vehicle from Model Year 2011 you are eligible for $1,500 towards that purchase. (SLS AMG vehicles and Sprinter Vans are not eligible for this program.

This is a limited program from Mercedes-Benz. Each dealer has a finite number of ‘control numbers’ to use for this program. Once they’re gone, they’re gone and the extra $1,000 or $1,500 is gone and no longer available.

This is a fairly straight forward program, it isn’t able to be used in conjunction with the European Delivery Program and some of the other programs out there at this time. You don’t need to necessarily trade in the competitor vehicle, just prove that you own it by presenting the current registration for the vehicle. So… if your husband drives a BMW and you want a new Mercedes, present the registration card for his car and you’re set.

Feldmann Imports Hosts Minneapolis Mercedes Benz Club of America Tech Event

On Saturday morning, January 22nd Feldmann Imports Mercedes-Benz in Bloomington hosted the Mercedes-Benz Club of America’s Twin Cities Section for the first club Tech Session of 2011. Mercedes-Benz Master Technician and Feldmann Imports’ shop foreman, Rick Engman, put on a program lasting a little more than an hour about Mercedes-Benz Service Technology and Diagnostics.

Feldmann Imports' Mercedes-Benz shop foreman, Rick Engman, addresses the group.

Mercedes Benz Club members from La Crosse, WI, Rochester and from all over the Minneapolis metro area arrived at Feldmann Imports for the program about 9:00am. After some coffee, orange juice, doughnuts Rick started the program with a brief synopsis of his automotive background which started with General Motors until he came over to Mercedes-Benz in 1998.

Rick explained the diagnostics process and demonstrated some of the diagnostic equipment used by technicians at Mercedes-Benz dealer service departments. He hooked up a 2011 E350 4matic sedan to the Mercedes-Benz diagnostic equipment and showed club members how service technicians run a “Quick Scan” to create a service report and identify any potential faults in the car’s many electronic systems.

It was an interactive event with club members asking questions throughout the program and Rick answering them. When everyone arrived at the event they put their names in a box for a drawing of a Complimentary Exterior Car Detail from Feldmann Imports. At the end of the session the question and answer session continued until all the questions were answered.

The club would like to thank Feldmann Imports and Rick Engman for putting on the event, and thanks to the members who attended and participated in the event. Visit the Mercedes-Benz Club of America Twin Cities Section’s website and see how you can get involved and take advantage of all the benefits to Mercedes-Benz Club members, including an additional $1,000 discount on your next Mercedes-Benz lease or purchase… mbca-tc.org !

New C Class Customer Experience: “the best we have ever had”

Late last month a couple came into the dealership on Tuesday evening interested in a new C300 4matic sedan. The woman had just been in an accident in her mini van and decided she wanted a safe sedan as a replacement.

She came to the right place. She was also considering the Audi A4 and Lexus ES350. The value, safety, and quality of the driving experience in the C300 won out in the end. Here are some of the answers and comments she sent to our sales manager today with her completed customer satisfaction survey.

Dear Mr. Anderson,

I am responding to the survey I received after visiting your dealership last week.

Were you satisfied with your salesperson?
Yes, Dave Tobin was very explicit in answering all my questions and concerns.  He was very knowledgeable and had a sincere interest and passion for the Mercedes Benz cars.  When we were test driving the car, he was helpful in explaining unique aspects and features of the C300.  We thought the dealership closed at 9pm. and didn’t realize until after we returned from the test drive at 8pm, that you closed at 7:30pm.  Dave did not make us feel rushed or like we had imposed on his time.  He was very gracious. Nor did he try to force a decision on us but did ask what our for next step would be and how he could help.

How was your overall experience with the dealership?
We felt comfortable and at ease.  

Is there one thing that would keep you from doing business with us?
No, our decision was being weighted against other makes of cars not the experience at the dealership.  However, our positive experience at your dealership help sway the decision. We felt our experience at your dealership (because of our positive impression of Dave) was the best we have ever had while researching cars.

Enjoy your day,
