If you own an import, this is the place. They serviced and repaired both my Volvos for half the price of most non-dealer Volvo mechanics. They are very reasonable and honest, I'm really glad that I found them. Now I can afford to take care of my car.

A good mechanic at an affordable price is hard to find. Marvin's fits that bill. I've been a customer of Marvin's for a long time. I went on a trusted recommendation, and I've never looked for another mechanic. I've sent some friends, and they're all happy regular customers now. This place is a jewel.

Friendly and honest. The technicians have a lot of experience. They are very nice people. They fixed my truck fast and the prices are very reasonable. I will come back to them for all my car repairs.

Cost for motor mounts: $100 Cost for labor $200 Marvin's CD Mix that he gives give to customers: Priceless. I heard about Marvin's through Yelp. He is very friendly and quick. He told me it'd take 2 days for the car to get done. He ended it having it done the same day. He was half the price of everyone else. I will definitely go back if I ever have issues with my car.

Vince has serviced my car for over 5 years. He is the best mechanic to have ever done business with. Thank you Vince!

Vince is truly a pro! When he says your car is ready, it is ready. If he tells you your car doesn’t need any repairs, you can go to the bank with his statement. All the work he performs is a guarantee.

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.

A good mechanic at an affordable price is hard to find. Marvin's fits that bill. I have been a customer of Marvin's for 11 years. I went on a trusted recommendation, and I've never looked for another mechanic. We've sent family members and friends, and they're all regular customers now. This place gets the highest rating possible from me, and everyone I've sent. We've moved out to Elgin now, but still take our vehicles to Marvin's.

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!

Marvin's does amazing work and I won't go anywhere else.
