Exceptional Service & Outstanding Quality & Prices

I bought a 2011 Mercedes Benz C300 with AMG package from Drive European. I couldn't be happier to own one. I think I got a really good deal. Sam and his team was courteous, honest and reliable. It was a very smooth transaction. I was very satisfied with the excellent customer service. Before we left, Sam sat down with us in the car and showed us how the features work. That was so cool. I would highly recommend Drive European to my friends and family. Sam, now I am your customer for life.

Met Sam Dawood at his Dealership & I was a few minuts late. He had made an appointment with me as he is not open on Saturdays. He was very cordial even though I was late. We went for a ride with the Mercedes I was interested in & he showed me how certain items on this car operated. I could not have asked for a nicer gentleman and he was very candid with me about the vehicle. It is after all a 2000 SL500, not a new car. I did not buy the car on this visit because there were 2 things which need further attention. When we parted he was looking into what needed repair and what it would cost, I have not heard from him since but expect that I may hear from him in the future.



I bought a 2008 Mercedes Benz C300 from Drive European and have really been happy with my decision so far. The sales process was very easy and professional, and the service I receive at this dealership is exceptional. This is truly the best place to purchase or service your car needs. The owner (Sam) was outstanding. I have sent my car there twice and courtesies were superb. The proximity to Washington DC makes it very easy for me to service my Mercedes when needed. Well to say the least, everything about the place is awesome.


Best foreign and domestic service and dealership

18 years ago I was lucky enough to stumble on DriveEuropean, of course it was a different name, owned by a great man who Sam worked with and eventually sold it to Sam. For 18 years he has serviced everyone of my Mercedes, Chryslers, Jeeps, BMWs and as much as I try to get him to work on my Rolls Royce; he is man of integrity and honestly. He just would not do it justice to his quality criteria. That is why I continue to drive 2 hours from WV for an oil change, new tires, brakes and this last one which no dealership in the DC area could fix was to bypass the teleaid system to get our radio working again. If you are a smart person and really do read and believe reviews then go in and introduce yourself to Sam and start a lifelong relationship of excellenc


Terrific Customer Service & outstanding Quality

I have been going to Drive European for the past 20-years and have never been disappointed by Sam and his associates. Also, I have bought my last four cars for our family from Drive European; two BMWs and two Mercedes all of which were in pristine condition from both a mechanical and esthetic perspective. I cannot recommend anyone better in the automotive field than Drive European.


Great Dealer, Good Service and Prices!

Sam Dawood and his team at Drive European have been 100% reliable and pleasant to work with as well. They have provided me with years of quality repair service and recently Sam helped me find my dream car. I had been sinking money into a much beloved older BMW, taking it to the dealership for maintenance and repairs long after the warranty had expired. My son suggested I try Drive European for a better value. The service was great. Scheduling an appointment was easy. Proposed repairs were explained clearly and the prices were much better. Sam and his staff were courteous and reliable. Repairs and maintenance checks were always completed on schedule. Tens of thousands of miles later, that same BMW is on the road, thanks to Drive European. I told Sam I wanted a new or slightly used car. He asked for my specifications. When he called to say there was a car available I might want to consider, it was obvious that he had listened carefully. He heard me on price, quality and performance, and Drive European delivered. My husband, my son and I are all Drive European customers now. Their waiting room is not beautiful but who cares since they don't keep you waiting!! I would highly recommend Drive European to others.
