Wonderful service and economical prices! I take my car there all the time and the owners are there being responsible for the work done and are great to work with. Needed my car in a hurry and they had it done BEFORE the needed time!

Car problems are stressful and often expensive. ?The mechanics here make car problems slightly less stressful, which is enough to recommend them. ?I also feel like I have gotten fair prices from them on the three occasions I have had to visit (compared to what web searches tell me I should expect to pay for the job). ?Finally, I appreciate that they explain to me what they have had to fix in my car and why they have done so. ?Hopefully I won't have to see them too much in the future, but if I do have car problems, I know where to go.\n

I got my 99 neon towed there last Tuesday. I do not know a lot about cars but figured my problem had to be the battery. They said the problem was the drive belt and the harmonic balancer. They told me the car could not run without these replaced. They replaced it and I ended up back in there on friday. Now they said it is the battery (which is what i assumed from the beginning) . So they replaced that and of course charged me again for the same tests they ran 3 days prior when it came out to be the balancer and drive belt. Now 3 days later the same thing happened. I am extremely dissapointed in there service and will not recommend this place to anyone nor will i ever take my car there again. DONT TRUST THEM!!!

for the past month or so, i've been hearing a strange noise from the engine and noticed the suv was not handling the same. i brought the vehicle to the dealer and after a hefty bill, the problem was still not solved. a co-worker reccommended 59 Auto and i decided to give them a shot. i drove in without an appointment, and they took my vehicle in. they were friendly, polite, and accomodating to my schedule( i work unusal hours). not only did they solve my problem, but they were kind enough to explain it to me in laments terms. and the bill was Very reasonable as opposed to the dealer who took my money and did not solve my problem. i would highly reccommend this auto repair shop to everyone!!! The staff was knowledgeable, polite and accomodating. Never again will i use a dealer repair.

I called 59 Auto in a pinch last Tuesday and scored a last minute appt to get my car in for a repair. I had to leave town for a few days and needed my car back by Sunday and didn't have very much time to shop around. I basically called a bunch of places on Yelp. They did a great job in diagnosing my car problems (e.g two bad front axles, an oil pan leak, and A/C condenser leak). They called me with updates. I was surprised that when they called me on Friday afternoon to pick up the car. The car is working great and off to get detailed tomorrow. Highly recommended. Their work is warrantied for 24,000 miles or 2 years. Pretty good deal.

I love 59auto! There is no way that I will ever take my car anywhere else. Magie is always smiling when I walk in the door and asks how my kids are doing and makes sure I get a nice cup of coffee. Linda and Wendy are wonderful. For years they have always explained exactly what is wrong with my car in terms that I, someone who has no clue about how cars works can understand. I never leave confused or unhappy. This place is the greatest, I would and do recommend them to all my family and friends!

This place was great. I had never taken a car in to get it worked on by myself before, and I was super nervous about someone being dishonest with me. The guys here listened to exactly what I said and road around with me and listened to my car so they understood what I was talking about. They fixed the problem very fast for a very reasonable price. I would definitely come back!

We had our 2001 Jeep Cherokee at 59 Auto to get the window fixed. We paid 59 Auto a total of $381 for the work. We were charged $188 for the part and $172 for labor. The book time to do this job is 1.5 hours, but I'm sure it took less than 1 hour to do the job, so 59 Auto charged $172 per hour for labor to do the job. Highly-paid business consultants don't make $175 per hour, nor should auto technicians or shops. With the right tools, I could have done this job in an hour. I called Autozone in Plainfield. They sell the exact same part for $99 with a lifetime warranty. Having knowledge of the auto retail industry, I know they bought the part for $50 or less since they mark up all parts by 100%. Since 59 Auto charged me $188 for the part, and I'm sure 59 Auto's cost is somewhere close to Autozone's part cost of $50, 59 Auto is making $138 on that one part, or a 275% part mark up. That's outrageous ! Simply put, 59 Auto overcharged me by a considerable amount. Don't get me wrong, I strongly believe 59 Auto should make money on your service and parts. I just don't think\r\nthey should be price gouging me every time I visit the shop. Plus, they insist on telling 20 other things that could be changed/fixed that are unrelated to the problem. Everyone there is obviously trying to earn a commission. Very frustrating. Why can't they simply fix the problem that I came in for, and for a reasonable price. \r\n \r\nNever going to visit 59 Auto again!\r\n

This place has always been nothing but good to me. I remember the first time I came in. I had just moved into town and my car broke down on the highway. I had never broken down before. I googled local shops and found them at the top of the list. I called and the person on the phone was really helpful. She talked me through what to do; call the tow, get to the shop, and then explain what is wrong. They were able to give me a ride back to my house so i didnt have to wait. they knew it was my only car and were able to get it in quickly and find that the fuel pump needed to be replaced. they were very resonably priced and stuck with me through all of my questions. They were able to pick me back up to pick up my car. It was quick and painless. I have been going there ever since. I have been going for about 3 years now and have never encountered a problem they could not fix. I love it there and would recommend everyone to bring their vehicle here!!

?I'm a single mother and cash is tight. I was having problems with my car and was afraid of going to a shop and get taken advantage of. So I went to a dealer and after 2 weeks and $1,6oo later;they couldn't fix my car. It wasn't fair. A friend referred me to this place and the man who answer the phone was nice. He explained to me a couple of things and gave me confidence. Over all my bill was $400 and had no problems since.

My truck has over 300,000 miles and nearly every part has been replaced at least once with the exception of the motor, when it failed emissions I thought we'd be saying our last farewell to the truck. But, not Linda she said, ""Bring in it and we'll see what we can do."" When I picked up my truck, it wasn't what I expected. At the very best I was hoping Linda would promise a successful trip through emissions. Hear this! they had already taken my truck through emissions testing successfully. You can't do better than that. From my past experiences with 59 Auto Repair (clutch, shocks, alternator, catalytic converter) it really wasn't a surprise. These guys treat me right and I?m nobody. I am so grateful.

ABSOLUTELY POSITIVLY DO NOT BRING YOUR VEHICLES HERE!!!!!\r\nI was charged over $800.00 for rear brakes on a Chevy Astro Van. Included in these charges were three brake rotors for two wheels. They tried to charge me for parts that they did not use and over charged me for everything. I am disabled and asked them to please help me to get out of the shop quickly. I showed up at 7:30 and did not get my ""estimate"" till 9:30. I had to wait for the girls to stop gossiping and taking a 30 minute coffee break to McDonalds across the street. After two more agonizing hours I finally got the ENORMOS bill. Do not get taken like me. Save yourself the money and grief. Please listen to me. I do not know how anyone can say anything good about this place. Please do not use them!!!\r\n

I live in Carrilon Lakes, a 55 and older community and today we had a business expo. Rich and Wendy from 59 Auto were there. I have been a long time loyal customer and have a have only great things to say about them. As I was talking to them person after person came to the table (by the way they had the best treats) and said that they were customers and loved them and the great work that they do. I have lived here for many years and always here from my friends how great they are and how everyone should go there. I just wanted to say thanks for always being honest with us and taking such good care of our cars. it is nice to be able to go somewhere and feel so comfortable getting your car repaired.

I came across this shop when I got a flat tire a few years ago and have stuck with them ever since. They are completely honest and competent and we've never had a problem with them. I trust their opinion and have never felt like they try to nickle and dime me (as has been my experience with so many other car mechanics). They have great mechanics and totally professional. They rock at what they do!?

I had been having several problems with my 92 Jeep Wrangler turning off on me. I had been taking my jeep to another shop for years and after three tries repairing the problem with three different parts I figured the shop I was trying to pull as much money out of me as possible. In the search for a new mechanic I had heard about 59 Auto from a good friend of mine that has been using them for years. Rich was the best. He connected his computer to my car and ran a diagnostic. He found the problem and had it fixed that same day. Not only did they get a customer that day but they got a customer for life. I will never take my jeep to my other mechanic again. He is honest and reliable and there are few guys like him in Plainfield with real knowledge on Jeeps.

Thi is an outstanding business from top to bottom. I have recommended countless friends about this repair shop as I have 5 automobiles they have serviced and I have NEVER had a problem that was not rectified with my utmost statisfaction. In fact, I take umbrage to the postings of those that feel this is not an upright business. I think those people are making those things up as I cannot imagine anyone at 59 Auto not treating customers with respect and dignity. All of the service technitions are in tune with customer service. I have had the following work done at this business. tons of oil changes with NO drippage afterwards; tire rotation; rocker arm replacement; entire brake system replacement; radiator replacment; caliper replacement; various warning light malfunctions; altenator repladement.
They have been under price quote most of the time. I feel they are extremly honest and reputable. I totally trust this business. If there wree six stars I would give them six, but there are only five.

We brought our car in for a full checkup in late October. All issues were fixed along with a full oil change. Since that time, we have had an oil leak. Be brought it back to correct the leak and we were told: ""we wiped it up, it should be fine"". Well, it's not fine. We brought it back again and we're now told it will cost $93.00 to fix the leak. Question: Why wasn't the leak found and identified with the inspection and with the oil change? And, why wasn't the cause of the leak found and identified when we brought it back the first time to be repaired? And, why did the leak start the day after the oil change? No answer. This is the second time this type of activity has happened with this shop. They get the problem fixed the first time about 65% of the time. The rest of the time, it'll cost you. To date, i have never had luck getting this shop to accepting responsibility for an improper diagnosis or poor craftsmanship.

Pros: They'll drive you home when you have to leave the car.

Cons: They don't stand behind their work - poor craftsmanship

I think they are great! I live across the street and they helped push my car across the street and fixed it up quickly in 8/09. Its been running great since. Very helpful and patient with all my questions. Feels good since I am a female to have them be so helpful. Thanks!

I came here after reading some positive statements about this shop, and am extremely dissatisfied. To make a long story short- I went to have a diagnostic done on my car because my lights were dimming and radio wasnt working. I drop the car off and an hour later they call me and tell me everything was fine, they test drove it and looks good. I hop in my car, head home and my car starts to die on the way home. I calmly call the place to tell them that I'm stranded and I just left there. They send a mechanic to jump my car and follow me back to the shop. I leave my car over night and they call me in the morning to say ""Ya, looks like you need a new alternator and some belts. The alt will cost ya about 330 plus labor. And your belts about 150."" (Little did they know, I did my homework and found that alts for my car run around 170-190.) When I told the women to hold off on my car, she proceeded to tell me that the alt was so high because of the ""lifetime warranty"" and I wont find a better deal. I tell her no. Anyway. I go to pick up my car, and they try to charge me $41.00. I asked a semingly nice lady what the charges were for, and this raging woman on the phone behing her immidiatley comes to the desk and tries to tell me that they charged me 41 for a battery charge. I told the woman that I felt it wasnt right to charge me considering I had came here the day before to specifically have something done, and it wasnt. She then threw my keys at me (mind you others are in the store) and told me she disagrees with me, that I'm out of line for even asking and on and on. Now, I am a 24, single woman, who holds a degree in customer realtions. Never have I encountered such a rude and disrespectful employee. Let alone would I ever treat a customer that way. I previously would have wrote a positive review being they did come and rescue me when I was stranded, but I will never ever return!!

my daughter was out of town and broke down in plainfield. her car was towed to 59 auto repair, they stayed late on a saturday to look at her car, she just ran out of gas, they didnt charge her any thing but the 5 dollars in gas they put in her car. they could have told her anything being a young girl out of town but they were very honest and understanding, thank you for taking such good care of my daughter. I wished we lived near you so we could bring you all of our cars. thanks again.

I have been bringing my car to 59 auto for years . I have not been there for a few years because i bought a new car . At my last visit something seemed very wrong . I found that the people up front where very for the lack of a better word LOST . I later found out that the old owners where no longer there . I was having a hard time under standing what i needed and the women that work up front had no clue . I never had much problem before and if audrey could not help she would ask the mechanic to help. So i asked to talk to the tec . He was very helpful seemed to be telling me something completely different from what the girl was telling me . But he was very confident and polite and went out of his way to help me understand . the work was done and i am very happy . I find if you want to know more you need to speak to the people who know. I do not like the new owners at all but as long as the guys in the back are still doing a good job and can help me when i ask thats ok whith me . i have no complante about the work that was done . i think they need to work on there cutomer service.

The staff at 59 Auto were great. They took the time to explain exactly what my car needed. They even let me know about repairs I could wait on. The price was good - the bill was a little under what they told me before the repair. I will be bringing my car back to 59 Auto.

I have found the owners, mechanics and staff at 59 Auto repair to be very honest capable people. I have never had an auto problem that they couldn't fix and at reasonable prices. As above, I highly recommend this shop when auto service work is required.\r\n\r\nDon

I received a quote from 59 auto repair $1003.65 it did not show the parts & labor. Then, I went to the dealership & they quoted me a price $663.81 parts detailed and labor at 105/hour at 2 1/2 hrs. I got my car fixed @ the dealer.\r\n\r\nI forwarded that 59 auto repair quoted price to the State of Illinois for repair price fraud. I found out that from my complaint and/or alert to the state; there is a law the auto repair shop is to detail their estimates Automotive Repair Act; beware

I brough my car in with a problem. They replaced a part on my car\r\nthat was wasn't broken and charged me $400. When I brought it back with\r\nthe same issue the same day they offered no discount or refund on\r\ntheir mistake. They never even test drove the car to make sure the\r\nissue was taken care of. They then replaced the correct part and\r\ncharged me another $550. No customer service they are all about\r\nthe money and their bottom line!! BE WARE!!!\r\n59 Auto Repair Inc - Plainfield, IL
