He knows how OCD I am, and I personally vouch for him. He is "usually" most free after 1800 and that's Monday through Fridays.

Yes. He does have tools, lifts, etc. No I don't believe he has Techstream, since his day job is trucks and that's a whole different field.

I've known him for years, and couldn't think of anyone better. I WILL NOT quote pricing as this is something you'd have to discuss with him, but I can tell you he's far cheaper than a independent shop or dealer for sure, and you will not sacrifice quality one bit with him. Just about any job he can do, however big jobs, is something you'd have to discuss with him in detail.

Oil changes, water pump, fuel pump, gasket replacements, etc etc, no problem.
He does NOT mount wheels/tires. Might do LIGHT body work, but he's mainly an engine/trans/mechanical guy.

Just PM if you need or want the contact info, he is located about 10 minutes due east of the La Grange, IL area.

I also have a buddy that works at Lexus of Naperville, I don't go to there as I (rarely go to dealerships) deal with McGrath of Westmont (I deal with Dino ONLY from this dealership when it comes to service) since it's close to my home. PM me for his details if needed.

And thank you for this information. I would be interested to know the name and contact information of your Lexus mechanic east of LaGrange. Iím working up to a LS430 purchase and I will need some input from a reliable mechanic. Thanks!

Looking for a recommendation for a good Lexus/Toyota mechanic or an independent service shop in the SW burbs (LaGrange/Willowbroom/Darien/Downers To Oakbrook) for the niece. She has a 2010 ES350 that needs a steering rack replaced. PM me if you prefer. Thanks!

If you guys are willing to travel a bit north a good friend of mine opened a shop about a year ago. He worked for Lexus from 2000-2017 and was a master tech and shop foreman for years.

His name is Dan Daubs. The name of the shop is Daubs garage in Richmond, 815-678-0483
