Best Auto Repair Shop In Plainfield, IL
Simply The Best
“These guys are simply the best in the Midwest. Probably even farther, but I do not go that far to get my car repaired. Now having said that, Ron and the gang are as honest as it is going to get. Sometimes a little too honest. But at least you know the truth. I have brought three different vehicles to Ron in the last 18 months. In all 3 cases, he fixed the cars as quick as possible, and was highly fair in cost. Interestingly, the first one, a Ford Explorer, was deemed unrepairable by both the Ford dealer mechanic and another repair shop. So we found Last Chance since it was literally our Last Chance. That, and the fact we passed it everyday on the way home. You know what they say- Location, Location, Location! Well, we brought it into Ron, and after a very long conversation about life, love, and the pursuit of happiness, Ron got his guys to work and they pinpointed the problem and fixed it in one day's time. It was seriously impressive, and surprisingly cheap (Ron- if you read this do not raise prices). Best of all, it was fixed. Well then there was the BMW. That was a nightmare scenario that Ron and his guys were able to fix up for us and get it back on the road again. Word to the wise- avoid at all costs any BMW dealers located in Naperville. Whatever you do, no matter if your name is Bill, or your name is Jacob, avoid it. Well we just got to visit Spa Ron for a third time with the Escape. Problem diagnosed, repaired, and returned in less than 1 day. He always makes time, not only for us, but for every customer. I cannot figure out how they do it, but I do see the garage opened after 7PM on the way home from baseball practice with my son a lot. So maybe they throw time at it. Whatever it is, they do a fantastic job at fixing problems and getting customers moving again. Thanks Ron and team for all that you have done, and all that you have yet to do for our family's cars. One last note: You MUST take the time to meet with Sherry. Or is it Sheri. Or is it Sherri. Or perhaps it French, Cherie. Like Mon Cherie. Whatever- she is too cool for school. Without Sheri, or Sherry, or etc... Last Chance might be Lost Chance. Just kidding! She is the beautiful face of the franchise, and her pleasant and friendly smile greets you when you stop in. Be sure to chat with her- she is a rib tickler.”

Such nice people
“My front brakes needed to be replaced. I went to another dealership "repair shop" and they were being around the bush with some parts that needed to be replaced and gave me a shady price. I called Last Chance Auto Repair they were willing to look for the parts I needed and were more than happy to install them for me. While they were working on it they were nice enough to give me a ride home until they were done. Such great service and nice people!”

Heat Not Working
“The heat in our 2006 Nissan Pathfinder was not working and it needed the u-joints replaced, so we brought it to Last Chance Auto Repair on the recommendation of a friend. Let's face it, no matter kind of high praise I may hear about a mechanic, I will always approach my first visit with a sense of dread and skepticism. I don't know THAT much about cars and I'm not made of money, so it is going to take quite a bit to gain my trust. This being said, I am pleased to report that my LCAR experience was every bit as good as my friend said it would be! What really stood out was the superior customer service. Sherri was pleasant and efficient in taking down my information and concerns about the car, and made sure I knew up front what their labor rate was (they even have a sign hung up stating this information). I hadn't previously experienced this kind of transparency with an auto repair shop, and it was much appreciated. She told me they would get back to me promptly with a diagnosis, and not start working on the vehicle without my consent. A few hours later I received a call from Ron and he confirmed what I already knew about the need for a u-joint replacement. With regards to the heater, he told me that the problem could be remedied by removing the core and soaking it in radiator flush. This was a pleasant surprise as the dealer had said the heater core would need to be replaced. Ron stated that the soaking procedure was not something most places would do and I believe him. When it came time to pick up and pay the next evening I dealt with Corry, Ron's son, as everyone else left early to attend some continuing education classes. Corry continued the top notch customer service in taking the time to educate me on exactly how my final billing amount was determined. He expressed a genuine concern in making sure I felt the price was fair and my overall experience satisfactory, which it was! I am very happy to have found a reliable mechanic, and will certainly be returning for next maintenance or repair job.”

“I had a great experience with Last Chance Auto Repair. I have never needed a real auto shop until now. Up until now, my dad was my mechanic, since I drove newer cars that didn't need more than regular maintenance. I didn't even know the first thing about calling a tow truck. Who do I call? Where do they take my car? My husband's car wouldn't start on a Tuesday morning. After replacing the battery, the car still would not start. On Wednesday morning, I called Last Chance, who has their own towing service. By Wednesday afternoon, tow truck driver Zach had picked up the car. By Thursday afternoon, I spoke with Sheri who quoted me exactly what the problem was and the price. She followed up with a second phone call to tell me that, in order to replace the starter, they had to remove and replace something to get to the starter. The heads up was much appreciated; I like that I can trust this place to contact me before ringing up a bill in my name. I didn't hear from anyone all day Friday, so I called on Saturday afternoon to investigate. I spoke with Ron, whom I spoke to during several other phone calls, but I could tell by his tone that he was definitely distracted and busy. There's a reason he works with cars and not people. Don't let his dry humor or shortness deter you from getting your car fixed here. The car was ready to pick up on Saturday, so we drove over. The garage is tiny, and it seems that there aren't a ton of employees, so if you're ringing their phone off the hook, there probably isn't anyone there manning the phone. It was a little frustrating at times talking to Ron, he always sounded surprised ("we have a Honda Accord here?"), but during most phone calls he was quite pleasant. Zach and Sheri were also very courteous and polite on the phone. When all was said and done, replacing the starter (including some gaskets and something else), plus the cost of the tow truck, minus the 10% off Yelp check-in deal, we spent around $450 - basically a car payment, which is by far better than being strapped with monthly payments.”

Car Broke Down
“My daughter's car broke down in Naperville on a Friday evening which was nowhere close to where we live or our mechanic. I used Yelp to find a local towing company with 24 hour service. Not being familiar with the area I asked if they could recommend a repair facility and they took it to Last Chance. I got a call from Sherri first thing Saturday and she told me that they were on vacation, but would call one of their mechanics to work on our car Monday. They were able to fix the car that day and took care of several other minor issues at the same time. On top of it all their rates were extremely reasonable. This is truly unbelievable service by a company willing to go above and beyond. I highly recommend them to anyone in the area.”

“My car recently decided to make a terrible noise from the engine and worrying that it would die on my commute I drove it over to Last Chance Auto Repair to investigate. They quickly were able to diagnose that my A/C Compressor had seized up as well as there was damage to my belt. Sadly this was a relatively expensive fix, especially on a late model car but Sheri was fantastic and was able to find the part for cheapest possible and get it rushed to the garage, shipping out that same day. I had gotten a few other quotes from nearby places and they were a) much more expensive (especially since they didn't look for a cheaper compressor to buy; and b) were less accommodating and friendly as Sheri was an absolute joy to work with. My car is currently sitting in the garage now and I am very pleased with how they were able to fit me into their schedule and treated me as a human being who was having a terrible Monday morning, instead of a cash cow that they could make the most money off of. They will definitely be my go-to auto repair shop in the future.”

Chevy Tahoe Shocks
“I took my 2007 Chevy Tahoe LTZ in because the rear air ride shocks were not holding any air in their bags. Now I thought I did my homework on the Internet looking for these shocks which range from 550.00 to 800.00 each. Well I called Ron, the owner of Last Chance Auto Repair, and told him about a few that I researched and I needed mine replaced, he immediately advised me that I should go with an AC Delco brand and he needed to see my truck to determine which model to order. He advised that he had tried them all before realizing that this Air Ride should was of the best quality and they fit and work. To make a long story short he found the right shocks and also found a bad front barring, I knew I heard a weird noise when driving over 45 mph. Ron called and told me he would change it with a quality one. I picked my truck up and the ride is solid. Now I will say this to all those woman who are afraid of going to a auto garage without the help of a man, Ron is your man, he will take good care of you and will not hassle or rip you off. Men if you are looking for a quality service garage and want your vehicle checked out thoroughly, then I recommend that you go see Ron and lets not forget his son Corey, he's a great and friendly guy too. Forever on the road and keeping the petal to the metal, thanks to Last Change Auto Repair, your friend, Greg.......”

“This place is awesome! Drove into to their shop a few hours ago with a grinding /crackling noise coming from my alternator. The car is 14 years old, so I was expecting the worse. Initially they diagnosed the problem as the alternator, but warned me that there possibly was a problem with the water-pump as well (my heart sank into my stomach); however, they assured me that they would concentrate on the alternator first. To my amazement and relief, they texted me 2 hours later stating that the car was ready for pick-up. Fantastic! They had replaced the alternator and the was noise was gone. The cost was exactly what the quoted and I learned that all their work comes with a 90 day guarantee, unbelievable! My car runs great and from now on Last Chance is my First Option for any future auto repairs or service.”
