Chicago >Marvin's Auto Repair
Marvin was fantastic. I stopped in last Friday morning to get a quote on my car. Needed complete frame work, shocks, and struts. Check engine light was on, ABS light was on, and a tune-up was needed. Marvin quoted me $1250 for everything and he could have it back to me by noon on Saturday. He gave me a loner car just in case I needed to get anywhere on Friday and Saturday morning. Went to pick up the car at 11am Saturday morning, and he had change filters, topped off all fluids, and gave me an oil change in addition to all the work that needed to be done and he did not charge me 1 cent over the quote.
I found Marvin through my uncle when my Ford Explore was having problems. I was told by another mechanic that I needed to have all new ball joints. This was going to be over $3000 worth of work. I went to see Marvin and told him I needed a quote to have all my ball joints replaced. After he had my car for an hour he called back and said I needed to have 2 shocks replaced and one new tire. This totaled $200 worth of work. Because he was honest with me I was sold. I have taken 3 different cars to him. He is always fair, honest and never tries to screw me. I have recommended him to many friends who have all had great experiences! For as long as I live in the Chicago area I will bring my car to Marvin's. Marvin's is one of the few businesses left in the neighborhood (in which I grew up in) that has remained true. It you want a Latte with your oil change or if you can't understand someone with a Spanish accent that is a personal problem and you need to have more than just your car fixed!
I have been taking my cars to Marvin for over 9 years. I love Marvin! He and his staff have always been very honest with me and all my friends who also take their cars to Marvin.
I love Marvin's. I have been going for years and have sent friends there that really liked it alot, too. I even stop in just to say hi if I am walking by. Down to earth, reliable and understanding even when you don't have all the money at once for repairs. :) Go there and find out, you won't be sorry. I'm going tomorrow. :)))
My sister-in-law needed some extensive work, and the mechanic in her small town 80 miles SW of Chicago handed her a HUGE estimate. I showed it to Marvin, and he gave a firm quote that was 45% OFF the estimate. It was worth bringing the car all the way to Chicago, and things worked out great. The prices always seem to be about 30-50 percent less than others. They are fast and efficient. They use quality parts, and do quality work If we weren't happy, we wouldn't spend our money there. Marvin has a good thing going on.
I've used Marvin's services several times and I've never dissapointed. Marvin is a great guy.
Marvin is an honest hardworking man who always takes care of our cars in a timely manner. We have been using him for years now and he has never steered us wrong. If you are looking for good work, honest prices and a good person, Marvins is your place!
Marvin actually made me get under my car with him so I could look at/touch what he was talking about. As a woman who knows nothing about cars, I appreciate the lesson. Also, the price seems quite reasonable.
Just the best auto repair in any way i can think of. And I do not just give five star to any business.
I was really happy with the great service I received when an oil change at this garage. Marvin is especially friendly and very helpful. I was able to use oil that I had previously purchased and they just charged me for the change as well as fixing a rear light that I thought had an electrical problem, turned out it was just the bulb. I definitely recommend them!
