⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️Jeff (the owner) is great! He and his mechanic Matt are really knowledgeable when it comes to auto repairs. They can really fix anything and charge a really fair price. They are the good old-fashioned auto mechanics and are not all about glitter and gold. I highly recommend them for your auto repair needs (oil changes also)!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️Absolutely the best shop in the area. It may not look like much from the outside, but the owner and his mechanics are fair and knowledgeable. My old rusty car gave them some issues, but they managed to get the job done. You have my business in the future.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️Got a transmission main issue, I needed it to be replaced. Went to the mechanic shop, really surprised with their estimation of repair cost, good service with a reasonable price. Strongly recommend it for car service, honesty and professionalism.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️I found this shop via a search on Google maps. I wish I had found Jeff 3 years ago! Jeff is honest, passionate, and beyond trustworthy. I never take my cars to dealers or shops and do 99% of the repairs myself but I got into a bind and needed my AC system evacuated and recharged. Jeff fit me in the same day and did an amazing job. He went above and beyond and gave me 1000x's better service than I have ever had at any shop. Jeff's prices are more than fair but more importantly he will not try to screw you or sell you things you don't need. Jeff is a self-made, honest guy. Who would you rather get service from? The corporate dealers who only care about selling you everything they can (i.e. "oh I see you need new wiper blades. We can do that for you for $800) or Jeff, the hardworking honest local mechanic? The choice is simple. I will be sending anyone who needs a mechanic to him without a doubt. Keep up the great work Jeff!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️When I get my car serviced there are some important factors. Cost, Honesty and Quality of work. JD Powers awards mean nothing. I learned years ago a car dealer would be dishonest if you have money and they need to book hours. After being cheated at two different car dealer service departments, I turned to private mechanics. I have had a private mechanic for several years now, (the only way to go). My last mechanic passed away and I went looking for another.
Jeff will help me troubleshoot over the phone, resolve issues as cost effectively as possible and perform a quality, timely repair. I have now dealt with Jeff for 3 vehicle problems. A fuel pump replacement, a transmission problem and a broken window. The fuel pump was replaced for well under half what a dealer would have charged. The transmission problem turned out to be a failsafe mechanism which Jeff successfully diagnosed over the phone and saved me thousands of dollars. Jeff' was able to contact his glass person and give me a cost to repair a broken window that was about 1/3 the cost of any other place, installing the window in under 2 hours. What’s more, is I dropped off my car for a $105 window replacement and he drove me home. Its clear, A Good Mechanic, is just that. Jeff and his team are cost effective and provide quality work. No problem is too small or big for this team.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️Jeff, owner and mechanic at A Good Mechanic in Grayslake, IL, is a very trustworthy person. He saved us a lot of money over the car dealership's quotes for repairs to our van. He is the most honest mechanic I've ever met. He takes his time to talk with you, diagnose your problem and come up with how to fix your vehicle. I used to be a person who would go to the car dealership but not anymore, Jeff is my go to person for my car repairs and oil changes. He also says he can do warranty work and really goes out of his way to help a person. I highly recommend him.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️REAL Talk: Jeff is a genuinely caring and honest individual. I was very surprised how I was treated. Especially, since I am a female and have been taken advantage of when it comes to my only car. I was treated like a queen. God bless Jeff, his family, and his business. You go, Jeff!!!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️After years of searching for a good mechanic with fair prices I have found one. Jeff has worked on most of our fleet now and I don't have one complaint. How rare is that?! Because we require all of our vehicles in top notch order it can get pretty expensive and all I ever wanted was someone to tell me-straight up- what was wrong, how much it would be and how long it could take an actually mean what they said. Jeff hasn't let me down. I never felt like I was "sold" on a repair or like I was buying something I didn't need. He never uses up sell tactics and I appreciate that more than you know. Also, I should mention, I am a woman. Who knew there was such a mechanic on the planet! Call him, try him just once, because if your using this to search a mechanic you were already disappointed with your last one!
A good and honest mechanic

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️I had a persistent rough idle on my 2001 Nissan van that I've been trying to fix for years. I even took it to the Nissan dealer to no avail. Jeff and his crew diagnosed the problem, three bad injectors, and had it fixed in less than a day at a reasonable price. I'll definitely be a return customer.

Not what I expected to hear...
⭐️Extremely rude on the phone, Excessive use of the "F" word.

Don't like the truth? Find someone who can tell you the Fairy Tail you want to hear. Probably best to settle this one face to face. Posting your feelings on this will not solve your problem
Job done well and quickly
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️I took my 02 trailbalzer to A Good Mechanic after reading many positive reviews. I dropped it off monday evening and they were nice enough to give me a ride home. They had the car finished the next day before I went to work and the price was very reasonable. Jeff and Brian were both great and I plan to use them again if the need arises.
A Good Mechanic keeps us rolling along
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️My 2001 Odyssey has just turned over 200,000 miles and she still keeps on rolling thanks to Jeff. It;s not easy knowing whether to keep repairing an older car or put the money into a new one, but having Jeff on my side has enabled me to keep the repair bills way below what any new car payment would be. He is always considerate of my time and money. I am really happy that I have found A truly Good Mechanic.
Finally, a Good Mechanic! by
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️Jeff, the owner of "A Good Mechanic" in Grayslake gave me a great brake job at a great price! I can't recommend him highly enough! Initially I was a little skeptical of his place because I had never heard of him or his shop before. I had randomly googled a mechanic in Grayslake only because I felt like I had not gotten quality repairs on this particular car's brakes for years. I had been to so many mechanics and none of them had ever fixed them quite right. I was always told what I was experiencing was "normal" for that car. Well, not any more! This time was truly different. Jeff and his team didn't just replace parts. They did a brake job the way it was meant to be done and fixed the real issues without my even having to ask. I can't tell you how satisfied I was with the price and the service. I couldn't stop grinning. If you're looking for a good mechanic, just go to the shop by the same name in Grayslake. DO IT. You won't regret it.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️I recently took my 02 Blazer to A good mechanic to have the entire motor replaced and I saved over a thousand dollars over going to any other shop in the area and it was completed in only 2 days....excellent service excellent prices......
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️I will take my car there again and again. fast service and good prices
