Diagnostics and Testing
As an auto business started by an American engineer and a German technician, Continental Imports was destined to be a leader in testing technology. We have invested in top-of-the-line tooling systems. Our Mercedes-Benz tooling includes the Mercedes-Benz Star Diagnosis System (SDS), the Mercedes Compact4 diagnostic computer, and the Xentry Connect Tab II device. We also have and utilize the Star (SDS) Hand-held Tester and Xentry Diagnosis Assistance System.
For over thirty years, Continental Imports has met or exceeded industry standards for both training and up to date tooling. Our list of industry-standard and vehicle-specific special tools is too large to list, but for those truly interested in evaluating a modern specialty shop, the current benchmarks of a consummate professional are the diagnostic computers employed. Once a luxury for independent repair shops, the diagnostic computers created by car manufacturers are now becoming necessary for even the simplest of repairs on modern Mercedes automobiles. From tire pressure monitoring, to battery charging and energy use regulation, to the safety and drive management systems, everything now is controlled by computer and diagnosed via onboard diagnostic protocols.
Continental Imports has had complete Mercedes-Benz diagnostic capabilities for more than fifteen years. We currently have three Mercedes-Benz factory computers: a Star Basic, a Compact4, and the most recent addition, a Xentry Tab II. Their utility in coding and programming can only be accomplished through SDFlash, an online subscription with Mercedes-Benz. Continental Imports has maintained such a subscription for over 10 years. With that subscription comes monthly updates for both our diagnostic software and the WIS (workshop information system). We are proud to offer up-to-date information and tooling; though staying current is required to offer the highest levels of services and to deliver superior performance, it is rare in the marketplace.
