When looking at the Kar Care store in Libertyville, we found a very experienced manager, Ken, who is committed to great customer service. He has surrounded himself with two ASE certified techs, each with over 10 years of experience. This excellent team allows them the confidence to stand behind their work with a 3 year/36,000 mile warranty.

More than fair than what I expected!

I was kept informed throughout. When it was evident that my repair would take a long time, Ken the owner, helped me with a loaner. As a single Mom, it was a BIG deal to be able to get the kids to and from school without having to worry.

Needed to replace the front CV axle joints on my car. Their initial estimate was higher then the estimate from another shop, but they did match it. I had a written estimate from the other shop. The repair work required about 3 hrs of work. I made an appointment for the day and time, dropped my car off and was ready to be picked up by the end of 3hrs.

by - Verified Customer May 13, 2016

Just wanted an eval of my cars condition.
