I have always bought new cars which I drive till they die or I kill them (yes I have) and Duxler has for 10 years made me feel safe driving my 2001 Maxima on long trips at high speeds. I trust them to keep my car in highway safe and reliable operating condition so I won't break down on a highway in Timbuktu and I consider keeping my car safe and well maintained a reasonable investment. My wife may disagree, especially if my life insurance is paid up.;-)

I have found their prices competitive but I personally like that they are proactive about keeping my car in great condition, especially brakes, front end, shocks, and tires, the key safety items that I am aware of and that I tend to abuse.

I came to Duxler on a recommendation and liked their work. They under bid another smaller firm on the work needed on a used car and have done a number of small jobs for free. (Like jack hammering the 4 locking lug nuts on the spare when the previous didn't include the key.) However, with my girlfriend's car they are always attempting to sell her thousands of $$ worth of repairs the car does not needed. I highly trust their work, but don't go in without knowing exactly what you need or without the ability to say "No" to a smooth sales job.

I went the Wilmette location for an oil change after which they tried to sell me a $400 brake job.
After going to another service station I was told my brakes were fine!
WATCH OUT!

Though this shop provides good customer service at the non-mechanical end of the business, beware you'll end up spending a lot more than you planned to. They provide rides to and from work, and their staff is very pleasant to deal with, but I'm sure unnecessary repairs were suggested (and made), which ended up being expensive. The car was newish (less than 20K miles), I went in for an oil change and tire rotation, and they recommended several repairs "for serious safety reasons", which of course scared me into having them done, and I ended up paying over $1000 when I started out expecting a bill under $50. Additionally, the repairs were $400+ over estimate. Seriously, how many serious safety issues could a new car have? In retrospect, I should've just gotten the oil change and tire rotation and taken the car elsewhere for a second opinion, but the shop had been highly recommended to me by longtime customers so I thought it would be okay. I'm never going there again.
