I had to get more work done, and when it came time to pay there was a misunderstanding, but Carlos went above and beyond to rectify the situation. Exceptional customer service.

It took me 5 years to find a good mechanic in Chicago, and then I moved... These guys were great. I lived in Hyde Park and made the trek up to them on a friend's recommendation. I'm glad that I did. Reasonably priced (not cheap, but not like my last two mechanics), fast, etc. They're really nice too. :) -L

i have to say, our first experience was a really good one =) Definately a lot of "pros" going for this neighborhood shop - 1) they do what they say they are going to do and the quotes are what u pay .. sounds easy enough, but as many of us kno, thats not always the way in the world of mechanics ..final bill shock is one of the most unpleasant things that can happen but Carlos told us to the penny what it would cost and to that penny thats exactly what we paid, even tho our car wound up causing them a bit of minor trouble with rusty bolts that added to the time they originally were expecting to need to do our job .. 2) they dont overcharge u .. no huge padding of labor time and nickle and diming here .. 3) Carlos is pleasant and professional .. he takes the time to explain to u what needs to be done -then what was done and it is their status quo to show u the parts that came from your car ..4) no extra work gets hardsold @ u here .. i asked about a hose i wasnt sure needed replaced - Carlos could have said it did, but he didnt .. i respect the honesty 5) the most important part - they go the extra mile .. our SUV is olllllld ..and olllld cars have bolts that stick and rust - the guys stayed late to try to get our car fixed on a Friday night so i could have it for work on Saturday because i had the flu and was trying to avoid a 4 block early Saturday a.m walk to the bus line that would be running .. it still wound up not being ready because what they had left to do on the car was just not gonna happen in 30 or 45 mins ,but i seriously appreciate the effort --just like i appreciate the fact that they offered to come and pick us up cause we only live 8 or 9 blocks away - if they could have finished the car on that Friday night .. its things like that that make u appreciate a business and pick them in front of other places .. and ill sneak a 6) in too .. they give u a discount if u say u saw them on yelp =) .. Now then-no ones perfect and the things that i would say need tweaking here are not huge issues and certainly not uncommon. This place is busy - busy as in my fiance brought the car by on Monday and was told to come back on Tuesday because they just had too much going on. No problem. We also werent able to pick our car up until Saturday -which means 4 days of the car being in the shop. Again, not a big deal, but understand depending on what u need done, it may not be a same day thing. (We had to have a rack and pinion replaced and it neccesitated some part hunting .. etc, with the extra work on the bolts, id have expected a 2 day job- 3 at the most - but yanno, they are busy -and they are busy because they are good ... so if u need your car quickly or in a certain time frame, ask if its possible) .. the last thing is the most common annoyance at mechanic shops -and that is the call back. We did have to call the shop a couple of times and check on things when we were expecting and didnt get a call from them , but to be honest, it happened a lot less than other places i have been to with cars. My suggestion is -hey u kno its a busy place, if u are dying for an update, dont wait around for the call, make the call yourself. In closing, a good mechanic is hard to find and folks, Zepeda Auto Repair is a good mechanic! They are definately our go-to guys from now on and i would -and will- recommend them to people i know in the neighborhood ..and on yelp!

I brought my car in on a Thursday morning to have a brake inspection done. I knew I would need new brake pads and possibly rotors and told them as much when I stopped in. I also had an oil filter I needed to have installed. At about three they had finished with the inspection and broke down prices for all the parts (both vw and after-market) for me including labor and taxes. I needed to drive the car the next day - and after insisting it would be fine if I had to bring the car back another day have the work done - one manager and mechanic stayed until 8:30 that night to finish the job. I am so happy to find a professional mechanic blocks away from my house that I can trust. When I went to pick up the car they showed me my old rotors and explained exactly why they were not able to re-surface them. And did I mention they installed the oil filter for free? Just a few twists and some bolts - super easy... no charge! And they are super friendly!

I was extremely happy with Zepeda repairs. I took my old city-friendly beater, a 1994 Toyota Camry there -- and it was in great need of some repairs. The service was fast, the gentleman who helped me was extremely cordial, polite, and explained everything that the car needed. He went above and beyond the call of duty to make sure that everything was taken care of, including things he didn't charge me for (screwed in a piece of trip that was starting to peel off). These guys beat most any other place here in Chicago service wise. I'm glad that im so close to them. I'd go there even if I had a new-ish car.

I took my car to Zepeda's at noon today after my squeaky, grinding brakes locked up completely. Carlos was super nice and helpful, completely lacking the usual mechanic routine of treating me like an idiot because I'm a chick with a car problem and even cracked some jokes with my crazy 4 year old. We were able to walk home while they took a look at it, he called back within the hour with a very reasonable estimate and had it fixed in just a couple hours more. Pretty amazing for a busy Saturday afternoon. When we went to pick up the car he was very thorough in showing me the parts that had needed to be replaced, went over the price break down and covered any questions I had. I'll definitely head back without hesitation next time.

This is the best auto repair i've been to. I put off fixing my car for a year and it was sounding awful and i thought it would die on me at any moment. I finally found this place on yelp and crossed my fingers. I got my car back within a good time frame and when i started the engine it ran like new. The price was fair considering what needed to be done. Thanks Carlos!

I've had a couple really good experiences here. The first was an electrical issue that was causing my taillights not to work. I know electrical issues can be a pain in the ass to figure out and fix, but they got it done that day. They also replaced a fan belt for me last weekend. Both times I have taken my car in on a Saturday and got it back that afternoon. Zepeda seems honest, competent and friendly. I'll keep going back. The only thing is that they tell me the car will be done before 5pm which is when they close on Saturday, but make sure you wait for their phone call to tell you it's ready, because it could be closer to 6. I learned the first time, so it's ok now.

I needed new breaks for my car and they gave me high quality breaks for a great price. The price was actually around $40 below estimate. I found the employees very nice and the word outstanding. I will be going back to Zepeda for all my car needs!

the taurus was making terrifying sounds, so i brought it into zepeda on saturday. after an inspection on the same day (took about an hour, so i probably should have waited at streetside), carlos (the manager) explained that i needed to have all of my brake pads replaced, as well as the wheel cylinders, that that was unusual for a car with only 20,000 miles on it, and that it might have been because my 90 year old grandma who gave it to me drove with two feet (which wears down the brakes). he gave me a very reasonable quote, plus a discount on labor for being referred to him by a friend and told me to pick up my car on monday. as promised, the taurus was ready and raring to go on monday replete with new high-quality brakes and 6 month or 6000 mile warranty. carlos even showed me all the old chewed up bits that he replaced before sending me on my way. bottom line: zepeda is a professional auto repair shop where you get honest, reasonable quotes and your car gets fixed FAST with QUALITY products. highly recommended.
