We brought in a 1996 Ford Escort with a very detailed description of the problem, including the OBD code saying that cylinder 4 was not contributing. We had already replaced all four plugs and wire and tested to see that we were getting sparks. We replaced the flue injector in cylinder 4. We simply asked to diagnose the problem with cylinder 4 given the above information and code. When I picked up the car I had to pay for them check the plugs, spark on each, compression on each cylinder etc. even though it was made clear none of that needed to be done. When I pointed that out to the guy he tried to feed me a line of nonsense hoping that I would believe it was all necessary. You lost my business Kar Care!

Ken saw me immediately, even though I visited about two hours later than promised. He quickly and efficiently serviced my Honda Pilot, and I was able to leave before noon. He also charged a fair price, coming out to below $100. I would recommend Kar Care to my friends without hesitation.

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. Their clean, modern facility offers a comfortable waiting room with WiFi access if you should decide to wait while your vehicle is being serviced. If you must leave your vehicle their local shuttle is at the ready, or a loaner vehicle may be available upon request.
