I have been taking our cars to Bob's for 6 years. I have always been happy with their service and prices. They have a great work ethic and are prompt with their estimates. We have had muffler replacements, brake work, tire rotations and alignments. I have also had them get us tuned up for state testing. They are quick and polite. Best place I have been to in the Downer's Grove area by far.

I highly recommend this shop, they have been my go-to auto repair shop for about 4 years now and I trust them like family. Never disappointed.

The place is packed with cars (they need to expand :) ), i believe they are working with some auto dealership by repairing used cars before they go on sale, so they know they work good! I had replaced lower control arms and all 4 links on my Honda and they did a great job! Labor price is right and what i liked most - you can bring your own New parts ( i use OEM all the time) and they will charge you only for a labor! I was looking for this kind of shop for long time and finaly found! Thank you guys for work done on my car and i will be recomending your shop to my friends!

My Mercedes needed some repairs, so I brought it to the local dealer and they listed out a ton of repairs and then the several thousand dollar quote.  Yikes!Since I am new to the area, I looked up BOB Auto Repair and thought I would give them a try as they  do a lot of work on German cars and got some good reviews on Google. After looking at my car, it turns out a lot of the work was not necessary and some of the parts needed were cheaper at BOBs vs. at the dealer.  They were very professional and there were no surprises when they called me with the quote and after the work was done.  They explained all the work that was done and how they tested it out after to make sure the problem did not resurface.  These guys are honest and do great work.  I will definitely be back the next time I need work done on my car.

Well I had called the owner and he seemed real nice was willing to get my car in that day etc... I have a performance car and needed upgraded parts so I had to order them.  I called him when they arrived and also told him I would be wanting to stay with the car and observe ( partially due to I do not know them, partially due to this is how I learn how to do things on my car, and fully due to this car has $17k of my money invested and countless hours of my blood,sweat and tears in wrench time invested into it.). He stated he was fine with that and that if I came in today first thing in the AM that I could do this. I was very happy to take that appointment so I for last two days have been very patient waiting for today.  I was going to be a few min late do to needing to jump the car since I have let it sit for a bit.  So I called and let him know and reminded him that I was going to be staying with the car to observe.  He stated no problem. So 10min later I arrive and he tells me to leave the car with them.  And that they will not have a lift open for several hours! I remind him of our convo and he says "I know but I don't have lift" I said to him why did you simply not tell me that when I called 10min ago.  I have a clutch going out and would not have wasted the trip trying to get here.  No real response. Bottom line I thought I may be obtaining a new mechanic that is local and instead I now won't be able to get my car in till next week.  I have to much invested to just leave it sit somewhere. And my work schedule will not allow me to carve out another 4hrs till then.  Bad way to do business!!

I am not the person who enjoys writing reviews, but I will take the time to write one since I think it could help people out. I have been to a lot of bad mechanics, but I will allow the others to write reviews on crappy places.  My car had an unusually complex problem with dying and not idling right, which turned out to be a couple of different things at once. Unfortunately, most of the population does not realize that 90% of mechanics have no clue what they are doing and always take the easy way out to band-aid problems, which cause even more problems, and they still charge you a full price. I wasted a few hundred dollars taking my car to different shops, but none of them fixed the problem. However the last place suggested I should take my car to Bob Auto Repair and see David. Bob Auto Repair was the only shop in town that was able to diagnose it. David fixed it amazingly and even kept in line with the estimate. They even fixed another problem that another shop had screwed up on my car while it was there.I have been ripped off by mechanics so many times I can not bare the suffering of others in these type of issues. Bob Auto Repair and David with all of his crew are the only place I will take my car to. They are by far the best and most honest.

conveniently located on the corner of Ogden Ave and woodward Ave next to the dunkin donuts. The lot generally shows what kind of vehicles they work on bing German cars predominately but also other various models too. He's always done a job good never leaving anything to question. He's nice enough to give free estimates which is very reasonable. The waiting area is ok a couch to sit etc nothing special HahaThey have an alignment machine on site which is very beneficial for any customer. They are particularly knowledgable with bmw and friendly enough for any mechanic. He's pretty reasonable on the prices as long as you know what you're talking about he'll be in the ball park. This is my only mechanic. I trust him with the work and labor as well as to provide me with safety and vehicle information that are vital to my car running optimally. David's my favorite neighbor
