Chicago >Andres Auto Repair Service
“was amazed by the great service I received from Andres AUTO REPAIR and will strongly recommend this garage to all my friends and classmates at Chicago State University.”
“Him and his mechanics were able to identify the main issue my car was having, they fixed the mass airflow and saved me about 400 dollars, as well as welding my catalytic converter which saved me a good 1200 dollars.”
“When I finally arrived 90 minutes after closing, Luis was still polite, professional and accommodating, rather than ready to snap my head off!”

Rip off!. I was at this shop for a no heat problem and was quoted $800 for a heater core. Didn't have the money at the time so I picked up the car and was driving it like this for the time being. In the meantime car started to overheating so I checked the antifreeze, it was low. Well I got some from local parts store and filled up the radiator and reservoir bottle and guess what the heat came back. I had a loose hose clamp that's all. I spent $11 for antifreeze and tighten a clamp, better than $800 for a heater core!
This vehicle got to our shop with the heater blowing warm air only. The customer had tried fixing it first by replacing the thermostat himself; so lack of coolant was not the problem. We found heavy deposits and corrosion in the cooling system. The customer mentioned he had used a coolant stop leak sealer. He forgot to mention that we flushed his heater core three times before he took his vehicle. He also forgot to mention that he was refunded ALL of his money when he was not happy with the work. He should be happy that his vehicle has some heat thanks to our flushing of his heater core and give us credit for it; but instead decides to attack the auto industry. There are very good shops here in the Chicago area. Don?t let a comment like this fool you. People are looking for good service and great business practice. It would be fair to say that a good shop also wants good customers. It would be a better world if we focused on finding solutions instead of problems.
In the search for a mechanical shop. At George's Carstar (63 yrs.) we sought out Andres Auto Repair Service. In the search for a mechanical shop we knew that the trust factor was at the top of our list when it came to sending our clients for repairs. We also knew how we needed a shop with trained technicians that would treat our clients with respect and communicate in words that were understandable. We expected top tier service as our clients vehicles would be done quicker than the competition. Online appointments simplified the scheduling process and a clean office was a must. This is what we found when we allowed Luis of Andres Auto Repair Service to serve us with our mechanical needs!
Always trust-worthy!. Being a woman, it's hard to find a mechanic that will give you the respect you deserve and explain things to you without treating you like you're an idiot just because you don't know about cars. I always receive this respect and great service from Andres' which is why I've been their loyal customer for the past 10 years. Thank you Luis for fixing the air conditioning on my van last week, I'm now ready for Summer!!
great csutomer service.
On Monday May 19, 2008, I was searching for a garage to fix my caltalytic converter and I happened to discover Andres Auto repair online. First, I was not sure if I should take my car to this garage I do not know anything about. After calling ten different garages and evaluate their csutomer service abilities, I decided to go to Andres auto repair despite the distance because of the courteousy exhibited by the manager of the garage Luis Avila on the phone. I was amazed by the great service I received from Andres AUTO REPAIR and will strongly recommend this garage to all my friends and classmates at Chicago State University.
Thanks and best regards,
Disappointed. We were in Chicago for a family vacation when the radiator overheated on my Jeep on a friday night around 5pm. We called Andre's and explained our situation and he said he would look at first thing Saturday morning. At 1pm, I still had not heard from the shop, so I called them. I was put on hold for 10 minutes and then told that both upper and lower hoses along with the radiator needed to be replaced, along with a "switch" and the fan. This would cost me $1500 and it might be fixed on monday. We opted to have a family member come with a U-haul trailer and we trailered it back home. At home, our local radiator repair shop fixed the fan in five minutes. I did need a new radiator, but the bill came to $565.23, much better than the $1500 that Andre's quoted me. I have to wonder if I was being taken advantage of seeing as Andre's knew we were from out of town.
The $1100.00, (not $1500.00), estimate included all original parts: a new radiator, cooling fan assembly, radiator fan relay, and two new radiator hoses. The vehicle had 158,000 miles and the second estimate was for $800.00 using after-market parts. On Saturdays, most of my main vendors are closed which is the reason for the delay. We use industry standards labor guides for our estimates. On Saturday, we were shorthanded due to an unprecedented emergency. Fixing the cooling system on this vehicle the correct way could add another trouble-free 150,000 miles.
An auto repair shop I can trust. I've always been apprehensive when it comes to taking my car in for repairs. I've had a lot of bad experiences and always get nervous. I'm a smart girl and don't need anyone to talk to me as though I'm a monkey. When I took it to Andres I was ready for the worst and ready to argue. But I was wrong. The shop owner was very nice and helped me understand what was wrong with my car. He didn't do any repairs without my approval first and there were no surprise charges at the end. Yes, I would definitely recommend him to my friends and family.And as a matter of fact, I already have.
Great place to take your car!.
This review is comming from some one who grew up in a gas station through the 60's & 70's. Dad believed in child labor. It was great to find a service center that reflected the values dad ran his business by. Never cheat the customer, great service brings them back, make sure the customer is informed of future needs. I would recomend Andre's to my best freinds. I have been a customer for 7 years.
Fair mechanic. I moved to Chicago fairly recently and, of course, I needed a mechanic. Not really knowing where to turn, I took a gamble with Andres and was pleasantly surprised that I wound up with a reliable and fair mechanic who does good and punctual work.
Very good, honest mechanic... these are hard to find. Andres Auto is the only shop to service my car. Luis, the owner, is always there and is extremely knowledgeable. He is always thorough in explaining the repairs that are performed on my car and to point out which repairs are vital and which are preventative maintenance. He's also great at identifying potential hazards (like the time Luis told me I would need new tires and sure enough, six months later, one of my front tires was on the verge of bursting, causing the whole car to shake--totally my fault, I chose not to get new tires when he suggested). Andres Auto is reasonably priced, a bargain really for the services they provide because they have rectified every problem I've had with my vehicle, even when it has stumped other mechanics; my car was shaking and I took it to two other shops, both of which told me that all I needed was a tune up. After two tune ups within a month, Andres Auto discovered that anti-freeze was leaking and suggested using a sealant to stop the leakage instead of replacing parts, which would have been about 3 times more expensive--I have not been to another auto shop since. Luis and his mechanics are great! More than competent, honest, and reasonably priced--everything one looks for in a mechanic.
Best service and dependable.
