I always appreciate the fact that the staff calls about any issues and never pressures me to purchase additional services. When I get additional work done, they provide emailed photos of the parts/issues so I can see what exactly was wrong. Their prices might be a little higher than the bargain oil change place, but you definitely get what you pay for. Ben at the front desk had everything ready for me when I arrived, was able fit me in last minute, and is always so thorough and courteous!

I only got an oil change but it was a really good experience. They were able to get me in easily, didn't try and upsell me on any unnecessary things and have the best prices I've come across in the area so far. I'll be going back here first for all car things in the future.

Frank, Gil and Scott are always so helpful and explained everything I need to know and always looking out for me and my car. They are quick and always give me a lift when I need it.All 3 of my cars have been going there for every oil change, brake Change and tire work.They are honest and always tries to help me gets the best prices. I’ve compared their prices to all the local dealers and by far they have beat it every time.

I’ve gone to Heart a number of times over the years, and each time I get great customer service and fair pricing. A couple days ago I heard noise from my brakes and after calling they told me I could bring it in within the hour. I was given a quote about 30 minutes later along with photos depicting the (poor) state of my front pads and rotors. The rear ones just needed a cleaning, and they had an additional $50 off making it less than my dealer’s quote. They also price matched my oil change when I said I got it for less elsewhere. Oh and they caught that my serpentine belt was visibly cracked and ready to be replaced (my car has 80k miles). They were finished about an hour earlier than stated and since their waiting room is so nice it was fine to wait, though they offered to drive me home if I’d wanted since their loaner car was being used.As an aside I’d come in in the past at least twice to have my plastic under carriage cover re-clipped after I tore them on parking pylons (my car is very low) and they did it for free-my dealer charged for the plastic clips. I’d highly recommend Heart to anyone looking for a mechanic.

I cannot express how grateful I am for Ben, Scott, and the whole team at HEART! I had serious issues with my brakes and they were incredibly patient with all my stress, my questions, and the fact that I didn't know when the tow truck was actually going to bring my car in. This is the second time I've come to this team fo help and I won't be taking my car anywhere else. I highly recommend this business to anyone and everyone!

Everyone, Kiesha, Danny, Craig were all amazing. The work and estimates were right on. I was offered a loaner and didn't even had to ask. My every need was met and they lived up to the ethics and morals printed and displayed on the walls. Impressed, you bet. Genuine honesty and kindness go a long way. You have my business.

Efficient, experienced, responsive, cooperative, professional, communicative and realistic. Better than any dealer I've worked with. They have loaned me one of their service cars so I could get around while our vehicle was in for maintenance or repairs. This team is highly recommended based upon multiple visits.

The team at Heart Auto is absolutely on top of things. Excellent service. Fast turnaround. Pick up and drop off and rides home as needed. So courteous. I have an old CRV with over 160k miles on it, so things are wearing out. But they always give me a prioritized list of the most important repairs to make so I can plan what to address now and what to take care of next. And Keeisha is completely organized and so professional. She makes it easy to make appointments and wrap up when finished. Great partners in older car care.

I brought our car in for a Winter check up. As always I was greeted by name as I came in. We discussed the work I wanted and later went over what our car needed, how much it would cost and how long it would take. Later that afternoon, I picked up the car and it is now in excellent shape for the cold days ahead.The friendliness and professional approach everyone on the staff projects is deeply appreciated. I also was impressed with how the staff was mindful of COVID 19 safety concerns for all customers and themselves.

Having not serviced my vehicle in over a year (I know, I'm the worst! But 2020...) I knew there would probably be some issues/tune-ups outside of the oil change I came in for. I appreciate that they showed me photos of the repairs that needed to be completed, and gave me suggestions on how to manage problems that I was not able to afford to fix at the time. They were sincere, kind, and reasonably priced. I'll definitely use them for all future service/repairs!

I’ve been using Heart since I moved to Evanston a couple years ago at my husband’s recommendation. Craig is fantastic; very responsive and up front, no surprises when paying! I’ve always had same day service with no issues. The crew there is always working hard & are very thorough!We bring both our cars there and soon will have a teen driver joining the club 😳COVID related: everyone had masks on, kept a good distance. I felt completely safe & comfortable. I’m sniffling/sneezing today, so I paid online and they’re leaving the keys in the car to avoid contact with anyone (awesome-good job taking care of your employees AND customers!) They do offer a pick up/drop off service but I’m close enough to walk/short Uber.Highly recommended!!

I appreciate them keeping me informed of what is wearing out on my car - what needs replacing now, what can wait until next time etc. Whilst I always have the choice as to whether to go with their advice, I normally do as maintenance is cheaper than repair once its broken! They are polite, professional and I feel their pricing is fair. Plus they are so close!
