4 Tips for Choosing an Acura Repair Shop in Arlington Heights

Most car owners wouldn’t trust their vehicle to just anyone, and we don’t blame them. There comes a time when most people want a real partner in their car’s maintenance, someone who knows their car inside and out and will make you a priority whenever you’re in a bind. Bouncing from shop to shop whenever your car needs inspection or repair means it’s less likely to get consistent quality service. If you’re searching for a reputable, reliable partner for Acura repair in Arlington Heights, we’ve got four tips to help you hone in on a solid candidate.

  1. Ask around your community. 

Never underestimate the power of popular opinion when it comes to businesses in your area. Community approval is a big deal for local automotive centers. When people find a shop they like, they usually stick with it for the long haul. Seek these people out, because no one’s going to keep relying on the same mechanics for years if they’ve been overcharged or their car wasn’t properly handled. Talk to people. Look at reviews online. Check credibility. Satisfied customers speak very highly of an automotive center’s reputation and service.

   2. Check their training and specialties.

For now, you only need a repair shop that can service your current type of vehicle, but if you want to be with this place for years to come, ideally you should find a shop that is diverse enough to handle whatever vehicle you choose down the road. Look for a center that is experienced in working on both foreign and domestic vehicles, and check to make sure all mechanics are properly trained to successfully perform all kinds of work on all makes and models.

   3. Gauge how comfortable they are with questions. 

Your mechanic is essentially you car’s doctor, and wouldn’t you expect your doctor to answer your pressing questions? Depending on the magnitude of your maintenance or repair need, it could get costly, so you have every right to ask questions about the service that’s required, the shop’s cost estimate, the credentials of the people who will be taking care of your vehicle, etc. If your mechanic isn’t comfortable answering these questions, they’re not running a very professional business.

4. Take a look at their shop.

The way in which an automotive center keeps up their facility says a lot about them, so stop by beforehand and take a look. While you can’t expect the actual service area to be pristine, you should take the waiting area into account. Is there someone there to greet you at the front desk? Is it clean? Is there a comfortable area for you to wait on your vehicle? Do employees conduct themselves professionally in front of customers? The way they handle these things say something about the way they’ll handle your vehicle.

 

At Wheeling Auto Center, it’s our standard to provide all of the above and then some. Our long list of customer testimonials on our site and outside sites speak to our years of customer loyalty. Every member of our team is rigorously trained to expertly perform work on all makes and models of foreign and domestic vehicles.

All June Oil Changes Raise Money for MS Society

Summertime and the month of June is officially upon us, and you know what that means…it’s time to do something worthy for both your car and the community!

This is our 7th year raising money for those fighting Multiple Sclerosis (MS). We are proud to have raised over $5,360.00 for the Greater Illinois Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society in the past 6 years through our annual June oil change special. To keep the tradition going, we’ve decided to add an exciting twist this year!

Introducing “Name Your Price Tuesdays!”

Name Your Oil Change Price Tuesday to raise money for The MS Society

IN ADDITION to donating $5 from every oil change throughout the month of June, we have decided to start doing “Name Your Price Tuesday’s” – meaning YOU choose what you pay for your oil change on Tuesdays! Wheeling Auto Center will donate 100% of these proceeds from these Tuesday oil changes directly to Greater Illinois Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society!

Can’t make it in for an oil change on Tuesday? Don’t worry, we’re still also donating $5 from EVERY oil change in June performed at Wheeling Auto Center to the MS Society as well!

The National Multiple Sclerosis Society assists in funding innovative research, programs, and services for individuals with MS and their families. The Greater Illinois Chapter works to increase the quality of life for people affected by MS across a 73-county territory starting at the Wisconsin-Illinois border. The Society raises funds for critical MS research and ensures that over 79 cents out of every dollar donated goes directly to advance the lives of people living with MS through programs, services and research.

Our goal is to top last years donation total of $1,500, and with the help of our community, we are confident that we can achieve our goal. Schedule your oil change this June, and be part of making a difference in the lives of those battling MS. Spread the word by sharing this article and let’s make a change!

Also make sure to check out our friends on The Chainring Gang – our local group of individuals who come together to ride for a cure for MS!

Together we can make a difference and end MS for good!
