Reviews on Elos Car Care

My car couldn't turn on at all, dashboard light behind steering wheel was out. I had towing company tow my car to elos shop. Since then hell started... My car was in shop for 14 days,he didn't do anything to my car. On top of everything my wipers were working just fine before all this. When my dad went to pick up my car he said he couldn't fix the car and wipers can't be turned off, even if the car was off. Then he made some switch for tme to turn on wipers on the left lower side of the dash board. The light on dashboard never got fixed. My dad went to pick up my car, he charged him $450.00 for it. Labor itself was $400.00...mind you I was without a car 2 weeks, if you can't fix it he should have returned my car as it was. I'm so taking him to the small court and I PROMISE to get my money back.

Elo's service is truly amazing! The staff there is so helpful. No job was to big for Elves he has serviced both of my cars and I haven't had a problem with either one of them since then. He truly works hard and gets everything done in a timely manor. He makes you feel like your car is in good hands. Over all such a great experience. I will definitely be back! Thank You Elves!

I've had two Mercedes service by Elves at Elos Car Care.  He is the best!

Always honest, always telling you what's in your best interest even though it might not make him much money.  I have two mechanics I trust with my Mercedes vehicles, Doral Auto Care in Miami and Elos Care Care in Chicago.

Elves is also smart at prioritizing work and telling you what to expect.  If it's something he can do quickly, he'll take a quick break from another vehicle and take a look at yours.  While most people are on coffee or smoke breaks, Elves is servicing customers.

Yesterday, he charged me $40 to fix 3 lights on my Mercedes.  I gave him $50 because he deserves more.  Try going to Mercedes and get a deal like that...

I have been a customer of Elo's for over seven years. The service has always been swift, efficient, and very friendly, and at times hilariously entertaining. Elves, the proprietor, has an excellent and honest approach to his business, with no nonsense or messing around. Everyone looks for honesty and a good value in an auto mechanic, two virtues well in evidence at Elo's. I will add resourcefulness and good humour to the list of good qualities here--two traits necessary if, like me, you drive older German cars!

Wholeheartedly and unreservedly recommended.

I was referred to Elo's by a friend after being frustrated with so many mechanics in the city.  My check engine and ABS lights came on and within a matter of an hour, the problem was diagnosed and fixed. It turns out that the problems were related to each other.  I feel that any other mechanic would have told me that I had two separate problems and charged me a fortune.  Being the owner of two older vehicles, I feel good knowing that I found one of the good mechanics.

These guys have no idea about Europen cars and the owner is very arrogant.. I would never go there ever again..

This Mechanic is soooo overpriced. charged me $800 to install a transmission that I provided. I told him to do it and at first he told me it would not cost more than 300  to install, then when I came to pick it up her gave me $800 bill.

What's more is that the guy doesn't even accept credit cards and gets mad at me for thinking a reputable mechanic should accept credit cards., and I had to trek through the blizzard to go to the atm to withdraw 400 from my account from the 7-11 because that was the daily max.

I gave him the 400 and he said that since it wasn't enough, he would charge me 60 dollars storage for another day because I didn't have the total 800.

I go back the next day and now he tells me that the engine is backfiring....I just paid him the difference and towed my car from him.

Still 5 stars for these guys. The service is better than ever and they'll be moving to a new location a couple of blocks north on Western. I've moved and am not as close to Elos anymore but they'll always have my business.

Elo's is fantastic. They have been taking care of my VW for over a year now and I have been thrilled with their service every time. I can always get my car in right away and usually it's the same day.  Service is done quickly and I have never had a problem.
They go above and beyond and will adjust little things for you if you ask at no charge. For instance my car was making a funny noise when turning and they filled up the steering fluid for me at no charge when I had the car in for brakes.
I totally trust their service. Car issues are super painful for me and Elo's makes it easy. Highly recommended!!
