Stokes Auto Service in Bridgeport is the greatest ever!! My 1995 Bonnieville broke down on me the other day at a stop light. Since I was in Bridgeport returning home from my friend’s, I had no idea where to have it towed to. Thankfully, my friend called a few friends for a referral and I had my car towed to Stokes. He immediately checked it out, and not only found the problem of why it died on me, but another ongoing problem of which over the last few years I had taken to numerous mechanics who couldn’t figure it out. He noticed the alternator in my car was not the correct one and the mechanic that installed it forced it in and cracked my Intake Manifold. I was shocked he figured this out, especially so quickly and I hadn’t even mentioned any other issues. He knew my car like the back of his hand!My car was ready 2 days later and now is running like new! He was wonderful! He was spot-on in diagnosing my car within a couple of hours. He thoroughly explained everything to me. Their prices are fair and reasonable and I know he did quality work. I was very comfortable with him. He could have taken advantage of me since my car was towed there and I was “stuck”. But he didn’t. I know I would have paid much more for the same work elsewhere. Money is tight for me and he did all that work within my budget that we discussed.Stokes Auto Service is professional, honest and I got the heartfelt feeling that he really cared about my safety (not the money) and wasn’t going to let me leave with a car that may have jeopardized my safety. And he didn’t know me from Adam! I am so very happy that I have found a mechanic that I can trust! I will not go anywhere else, because being a woman; I have been ripped off by mechanics in the past. It will be a bit of a drive for me to use him, but totally worth it! He has a new happy customer for life! I cannot rave enough about Stokes Auto Service!!!!Tina UEvergreen Park

Once again Western and Bryn Mawr Auto repair helped me and got my 20 year old car running. I would hate to be the mechanic that fixes my car because my car is so old and am sure my car is hard to work on. Sami and George's mechanics are always nice, friendly and very respectful with me and I always walk away with a feeling like my job would have costed more had I gone to say a dealership. These are good neighborhood guys they always are more than fair with me and they keep my little ford in tip top shape for a 20 year old car. This time they did my break pads, rotors, tie rod, ball joint, 1 stud 2 calipers and an oil change. I am not going to say what I paid but asked around and everyone I asked guessed a much higher price than what these two brothers charged me. They are truly angels and are the best. Let me also add that my 20 year old car starts up like a brand new car in the cold weather and I really think it is because Sami and George's mechanics take such good care of my car. I bring it in every 3 months for an oil change and they look it over for me and make sure it is safe for me to drive. I am so thankful to them.

Well I can say is WOW! I just picked up my car from Dayton and I am so pleased. I had an accident a few weeks ago, where I had a good amount of damage. My insurance company recommended Dayton, so I had my car towed there. The shop manager Glen was very nice and explained the whole process to me and answered all my questions with sencerity. My car was in the shop for 17 days, in which they kept me informed the whole time. Since my car was in the shop, I called to ask if they could also fix a small dent that I had prior. Robin, the lady in the office was so helpful with getting back to me with a price and again answered anything I asked about my car. When it came to the insurance work, Robin took care of everything for me, to where I didn't have any of that stress. My car looks fantastic and back to the way it was before. I am very thankful to the entire shop and I will recommend them to anyone I know. Thanks again Glen and Robin for making my car look great and treating me so well.

Recently I was involved in a serious accident and the car was "banged up" pretty good. I couldn't imagine that my car with nearly $12,000 in damages would ever look or drive the same. Boy was I wrong!!! When I picked the car up from Dayton Auto Rebuilders, I couldn't believe how perfect it looked,--as if nothing ever happened!! Little did I know that the best was yet to come. The morning after I picked the car up, I drove it from Chicago to my hometown,-St. Louis, Missouri to visit family. The ride was incredible (just like normal)!! I was so happy!!! When I arrived in St. Louis, my extended family scrutinized the car and tried to find "flaws",---there were none (LOL!). Thank you Dayton for delivering service beyond the expected! Because of you, I can keep my car and drive it again with confidence and pride!!!! You guys are AWESOME!!! Gratefully Yours,Lori McClenton
Speed Service is the best machine shop in the city of chicago. I sent Brian a 350 out of my 70 chevelle and he did the clean up on the block, line honed it, bored it, and decked it ,and he ordered the rotating assembly to turn it into a 383. When I got the finished product I was amazed at the quality of the work. They go above and beyond the regular work. This engine was awesome!! Needless to say, when I built the bottom end every clearence, was perfect. When I started the engine my oil pressure was at 80 at all times. prefect machine work is hard to find and this guy does it right the first time. I'm actually going to send him a 454 next week to turn into a 496 for me.My advise to anyone thinking of going here. Dont waste anymore time and get there now! He does alot of work. you'll see when you go into the shop he has prolly 100 motors getting work done
Marvin was fantastic. I stopped in last Friday morning to get a quote on my car. Needed complete frame work, shocks, and struts. Check engine light was on, ABS light was on, and a tune-up was needed. Marvin quoted me $1250 for everything and he could have it back to me by noon on Saturday. He gave me a loner car just in case I needed to get anywhere on Friday and Saturday morning. Went to pick up the car at 11am Saturday morning, and he had change filters, topped off all fluids, and gave me an oil change in addition to all the work that needed to be done and he did not charge me 1 cent over the quote.
