Annapolis, Maryland (PRWEB) February 12, 2007 -- Mercedes-Benz of Annapolis, in business since 1971, will embrace the Ask Patty concept. Mercedes-Benz of Annapolis owes this distinction to their high level of customer service and outstanding reputation of total customer satisfaction. Mercedes-Benz of Annapolis' partnership with Ask Patty represents an increased commitment to the female car buyer to provide a safe and comfortable buying experience.

The vision of Mercedes-Benz of Annapolis is to create a customer-focused, integrated network of automotive sales and service that upholds the exemplary customer service their clients expect and deserve.

Since 1983, General Manager, John Dunphy, has added his hands-on experience to Mercedes-Benz of Annapolis. Several of the Mercedes-Benz of Annapolis employees have been with the family for years and are all instrumental to the dealership's growth and success. In 2005, a new 30,000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art service facility was completed with 34 fully air-conditioned service bays, seven service advisory stations and a full customer lounge.

In addition to opening a service facility in 2005, just recently in 2006 we opened a 25,000 sq. ft. showroom that features a 15-car showroom on our first floor and a 30-car showroom on our third floor, as well as a Mercedes-Benz boutique area that surrounds our customer lounge.
Mercedes-Benz of Annapolis is part of MileOne Automotive, which has 67 dealerships representing 28 automotive brands located in Maryland, Washington DC, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Virginia.

"Our decision to partner with Ask Patty reflects the kind of forward thinking needed to deliver consistent outstanding results in customer satisfaction and sales growth to this important consumer segment," stated Brian Fader, President Mercedes-Benz of Annapolis.

Women represent over half of all vehicles sold annually in the United States with revenues topping $80 billion every year. Until Ask Patty, there hasn't really been a website exclusively devoted to their needs and concerns.
