We Make Our Customers Happy

A trustworthy mechanic! 

“I know these guys need to make money, but I trust every one of them in pricing and services needed now versus things I need to worry about in the future. My daughter came in to pick up her car and Steve offered to check the fluids weekly for her. It’s on its last legs and we just need to get through the summer with it, but Steve wanted to ease her mind.”

Tony S., Crystal Lake, IL

The best auto repair shop in the region 

“Top Notch remains my go-to option for all of my auto maintenance and repair needs. I drive an aging vehicle with a lot of miles, and I attribute the fact that it is still drivable (and NOT yet worthy of investing in a newer vehicle) to their expertise, quality service, and cost-conscious mindset for the customer. They don’t play games. They diagnose problems quickly and accurately, and your own research will prove that their quotes for repairs are fair. Their expertise, service, and pricing are by far the best I’ve found locally. It’s at a level that I’ve come to expect, but should not be taken for granted. 5 stars easily.”

Tim H., McHenry, IL

Fantastic service & pricing

Manager Steve is a friendly and knowledgeable individual who really cares about delivering fantastic customer services and believes strongly in giving fair and honest pricing. The whole shop really goes the extra mile for customers.
