Here’s a trivia question for you:  what is the oldest automotive brand in existence today?  If you answered Mercedes-Benz then you would be correct.  Mercedes made their first automobile in 1886, the Benz Patent Motorwagen, and the first one under their current name in 1926.

The company began in 1886 with that first petrol-powered car, and it was the creation of Karl Benz; later Gottlieb Daimler and Wilhelm Maybach joined the planning group; at one time the company was called Daimler-Motoren, but in 1926 they became Mercedes-Benz and have stayed with that name ever since.

Mercedes-Benz is one of the most recognizable automobiles in the world, and they have been known for innovation for decades.  Many of the safety features that they introduced are standard in all autos today, and their three-pointed star on the hood is as classic a symbol as you will ever see.

As you would expect from such innovators, the Mercedes parts are legendary, and whether you are talking about new, aftermarket parts, or Mercedes used parts, they are always reliable and finely crafted.

Mercedes replacement parts are manufactured around the world, with plants in Germany of course, but also Argentina, Austria, Brazil, Canada, China, Egypt, Finland, Hungary, India, Indonesia, Iran, Malaysia, Mexico, Nigeria, Spain, South Africa, South Korea, Thailand, Turkey, United Kingdom and the United States.  One could definitely say that Benz parts are a global product.

So where does a car owner go for replacement parts?  Well, you can certainly go to a dealership or auto parts store, but realistically you are going to pay big bucks for Mercedes aftermarket parts.  Why not by used?  Recycled parts from a salvage yard like All Import Auto Parts, the number one Fort Worth salvage yard, are reliable and guaranteed.  Better still, when you buy Mercedes used parts from a salvage yard, you are paying much, much less.  When you are talking about quality craftsmanship in car parts, it just makes sense to pay less for used parts that will last a long time because of their quality.

Mercedes-Benz….in business since 1886….one-hundred and twenty-six years of knowledge and craftsmanship, all rolled into one company.  When you drive a Mercedes (or Benz if you prefer) you are driving one of the finest automobiles ever produced, and that is a feeling of relief, knowing that the car you are driving is backed by so much experience.  Mercedes-Benz truly is one of the classics in the car world.
