I like coming to this place for oil changes when I can't get my car on a lift, they don't try to sell me things I didn't ask for and they know how to do things right. You may be able to get your alignment or other things done for less elsewhere but there's a good chance that person is Jethro who just cross-threaded all of the last person's lug nuts on a wheel. Or it's the dude at Chain Mart that didn't torque the drain plug on your mom's transmission now she's wondering why her car smells funny and won't go over 50. had that happen!
I went in yesterday for new tires and 2 other things, they cleaned out my engine compartment, cleaned and applied dielectric grease to my battery terminals, buffed my headlights, replaced a wheel stud I didn't see was stripped, and told me how NOT to put a caliper bracket back together. I was surprised they went THAT above and beyond. The people at Illini Oil Change really try to get you your money's worth and make your vehicle run a long time.
This place is a rip off. I went to have my oil changed, and the guy told me I had $425 worth of repairs to do otherwise my transmission would fail and it would cost me $2500 to replace. I took it to another auto shop for a second opinion, and the guy there told me it did have a small leak, but it was not an immediate problem and it progresses very slowly. I should just check it every 6 months, and then he quoted me for the repair at $300. Illini Oil Change tries to scam their customers and uses scare tactics to get business.
Friendly people and does a great job what they do. I can call them and tell them I have a problem with my car. They tell me to come in and the car is done that day depends what is wrong with it.
This January of 2007 my car broke down and called them and told them my car keeps on breaking down. A employee from there sold me a car and a few days later was not happy. So the owner took care of me, the other car I had he took it and the one I bought and trad it one of his cars. He is more than fair he has a car lot down the street and him and his family treated me VERY well! I have a warranty on my car too, and low payments. I'll be back next year to buy me another car from them.
