This is a great auto repair shop in Plainfield, IL to get honest service at a more than fair price. Conveniently located on the Plainfield, Naperville, Bolingbrook border. I was over due on changing my timing belt on my 04 Audi TT, I had no idea that it could destroy my engine if it broke. Shopped around for about a week for shops in the local area that serviced Audi timing belts. I kept hearing about Last Chance Auto Repair in Plainfield, IL. There prices and reviews seemed more than fair, plus an A+ with the Better Business Bureau doesn't hurt. Felt good about there family owned, priced right, no corporate mouths to feed quote. Actually whom ever came up with that seems to be an advertising master mind. One of the top quotes I've ever heard and I'm in the advertising business. There quality work is just as good as their superior advertising hands down. They even got me a discount on a rental car at ten dollars a day. From now on I know where my Audi and I will be going, thanks Last Chance Auto Repair!

My brakes went out on my way to work one morning. Almost had to call off. But lucky day when called Last Chance Auto Repair for a tow service, they were there within twenty minutes. They took me directly to there auto repair shop, right to the lift. They lifted my vehicle then showed me that my brake line blew. They told me I didn't have to pay for the tow until it was fixed and I pick my vehicle later. They gave me a ride to work. How nice and sweet! I didn't have to take another day off after all. They called me later told me they repaired my brake line problem and that I was good to go. My insurance company paid me back for the tow because of my towing plan I pay for. This repair keeps getting better. Topping it off there price was excellent. They had to repair and replace two brake line sections. Picked up my vehicle after work. Thanks for all the help Last Chance! I've already told my friends at work how nice your team is.

Last Chance fixed my Honda!

I brought my Honda Accord to last chance for some suspension repair. After my regular mechanic quoted me a really high price, a friend told me about Last Chance and they quoted me $200 less and got the car in and out the same day. They were super friendly and helpful. I will use them again and definitely recommend Last Chance.

Last Chance Auto Repair For Cars Trucks out in Plainfield, IL is a very friendly shop that includes one catchy name that sparked my interest. I love my B.M.W. so before I went of course I had to do my homework. For one they have a beautiful website. Two they have an A+ rating with the B.B.B. Third the Bimmer shops website seems to list the best shops in the area to maintain my baby. So I called, I knew it was due for the 90,000 mile maintenance inspection. Spark plugs, ignition cables, check the brakes, basic tune up components, basic maintenance items. No problem they took care of everything. What a price difference compared to the dealers rates and all the other shops I received quotes from. I'm more than happy, so happy where I bought the shop a box of candy for the holidays. They explained everything clearly and to the T.

Top Notch Plainfield Auto Repair Service

My family and I are so happy that we met Last Chance Auto Repair For Cars Trucks. The owner's wife works at a local hospital with me and one day I heard her talking about their family owned auto repair shop. Now she didn't suggest it, I over heard her being a little snoopy. LOL, so I looked them up on the internet Citysearch and the rest of the internet had a lot of positive things to say. A couple negatives but that is normal for being in business for such a long time.

Well we called we scheduled boom we now save money on all our required auto repair services. It started with a auto transmission rebuild that was desperately needed when I heard his wife talking and yes I thanked her too. Some great news was that they finance, bad month turns into a great one. I brake it they'll fix it.

They are very kind, they even gave me a ride to work since my husband was at work. Free of charge no problem they said. They had the transmission rebuilt within three days. No rental needed I live almost next to my work. Lucky dog. Thanks for help, Last Chance!

Auto Repair Shop on Plainfield Naperville Bolingbrook Border

My car has been acting strange as of late. My father told me it was probably going to be a fuel pump. I thought lets test this theory and bring it to a shop for the proper testing. We found Last Chance Auto Repair For Cars Trucks on the internet, what a nice looking website. Real nice on the phone. The owner Ron diagnosed it almost over the phone.

Arrived the following day for the scheduled appointment we made. My father, Ron and the team member that diagnosed it concluded all the same fate. Fuel pump, except there price was far more fair then the rest. There was no charge for the diagnostic service. Bingo!

Just like the previous review on here stated. I can't believe the one star rating everyone knows credit cards have theft protection. My aunt actually used this place to rebuild there transmission in there dodge mini van a year or so back. There positive comments, referral and the internet positiveness made it more than an easy choice.

Well they even changed our fuel filter for free just to out do the estimate that we received from the other repair shop. Just to go that extra step to make sure as a new customer we are more than happy.

Brake Specials is what I looked for on the internet.

Even with no coupon their price was better then ever where elses price with their coupon. Then the family went to check out their shop to see if it was real. On the internet it shows they have been in business over twenty years. I've heard the name several times just never knew where they were at. Till we looked on the internet under brakes, brake specialists. Great warranty, better price, best quality and we learned a great deal about our family van and how to make it last. They showed us the maintenance schedule so we understood that when people write that stuff down their not out to get you. They are trying to help you get better fuel economy and make your vehicle family safe.

Car auto repair specialists fair price included.

Exhaust catalytic converter repairs get expensive. I'm glad we found this place. They saved me eight hundred dollars. Yes now thats a lot, different part yes. But they gave me options included was the dealer part. Still hundreds less, but we went with a top notch oem replacement far less than all better warranty our choice. Sometimes thats what it takes to get me to understand.

They towed it free cause of the transmission rebuild repair

First we thought the brakes were locked up so we needed a tow. Then after the tow that turned out to be free in the long run we found out something else. They connected their diagnostic scanner and concluded a different situation with the health of my vehicle. Several trans codes were in the computers history. Wow what a learning experience! I'm glad my buddy from church gave me there card and it was in my wallet. Then we found them on here and that was the least we can do. To let people no what kind of place this is. Fair budgeted price they even towed it for free. I guess they tow it for free with any major job or project. Thanks Last Chance!!

Thanks for the business and for letting everyone know (shhhhhhh) that sometimes yes will actually tow your vehicle to our auto repair shop in Planfield, IL, for free of charge. Typically we don't tow for free unless it's a big job (engine or transmission rebuild or replacement) usually $1000 or more and we only do that for local towing. Don't get me wrong you always get a discounted tow service when when it's towed to our shop for your auto repair and or auto service needs.

Transmission repairs rebuilds 60585 Naper-Plainfield Rd

I just wanted you to know that the service I received at your Flushing store was excellent. Ron and his crew got me in and out within 12 hours, and kept me in the loop as the replacement was being installed. He gave me all the options regarding the warranty, WITHOUT pressure one way or the other (I really appreciated that). All final decisions were mine, but I was able to base them on the helpful opinions of your technicians. Again.....JOB WELL DONE!! Thank you! I wish every business was run like Last Chance's Transmissions Flushing!

Car repairs on Naperville-Plainfield Road

I brought in my subaru impreza right off the street with a massive leak in my powersteering pump. They took care of me the same day. Gave me the estimate up front and called me when the work was done. They will definitely have my repeat business. As a bonus, I got to see the new Skyline GTR parked right in front of their shop. First time seeing one on the street. Very nice ride!
