Lets face it, there is no such thing as perfection, although Northtown Auto has been the closest that I've found. Rating a business online, only captures one incident, but as a consumer you should expect that something could go wrong at some point. I focus mostly on the way a business takes corrective measures if something goes wrong. Do they stand behind their work? I've been a Northtown customer over 7 years and yes I've had a few incidents were service was a bit shy of perfection. What always impresses me about them, is the fact that they are very responsive and accommodating if something is not up to par with the quality standard they promised. They stand behind their work and are willing to make it up to you! Before Northtown, I tried other shops in the area and they have all failed when put to the test. I will continue doing business with them and highly recommend them!

I was referred to Northtown by a friend. I've lived in McHenry for a while and have used a few of the others repair centers in town but have never been treated and taken care of like at Northtown. The customer service is outstanding! I was provided valuable information about my vehicle's condition but never felt pressured to fix anything that was not a safety hazard. Best of all, the friend that referred me received a free oil change for referring me and I received ten dollars off my first service. Bottom line is that I felt that I can trust them and they provide the kind of customer service that is rarely seen anymore. I would certainly recommend them!

Great first experience! I was impressed by their customer service and nice building. Repairs were done in a timely manner and I was continuously informed about the progress. The price was exactly what they quoted. I will continue to use them for car repairs.

Did a good job. Repairs were quick and painless.
Tips & Advices
Yes. New tires purchased online can often be priced lower than ones at a tire dealership. Buyers can often avoid state sales taxes and locate hard-to-find tire styles and sizes, but will still have to locate a local tire installer and pay sometimes high shipping costs.
The average cost of a set of new tires is $637, with a range of between $525-$725. In addition, installation includes mounting and balancing, alignment, and disposal of old tires.
The vehicle is raised and the old wheels are removed, then the old tires are removed from the wheels. The lug nuts, wheels, and valve stems are inspected and replaced as needed. The new tires are mounted and sealed, then inflated and balanced. The wheels are then replaced on the car. The average installation takes approximately 45 minutes.
Agencies such as the Tire Industry Association promotes tire safety through advocacy and education to the industry including: manufacture, sales, repair, service and recycling. Seek a full-service tire dealer who carries a wide variety of tire types and brands and asks about the type of driving you normally do.
  • Move your car to a safe location.
  • Turn on your car’s safety lights, apply the parking brakes and remove the hubcap if there is one.
  • Loosen the lug nuts with a lug wrench (but do not remove them), raise the vehicle with a jack and then fully remove the lugnuts.
  • Remove the flat tire and replace it with the spare tire.
  • Tighten the lug nuts by hand, lower the car and then tighten them fully with the lug wrench.
