New CL member. First post.
I have a '98 ES 300 and take my car to Ron Paul (yes, that's his name) at RX Auto Care/Radiator Express located on Rte. 59, just north of the Butterfield Rd/#59 intersection.
He's been my mechanic for 5 years. He doesn't do unnecessary work and has saved me a lot of money with those musical words, "No Charge."
His number is 630.393.6566. Tell him Terri from Glenbard referred you.
