This is probably the best auto mechanic place that I have ever been. I brought my jeep to fix a leaky trans and they did it. Quite an accomplishment considering I brought it to two other places and they were not able to fix it. Zepeda also did other work on my car which was well done, and their customer service is outstanding.

I made a yelp account today specifically to post about this place. I cannot speak highly enough about the folks at Zepeda Auto Repair. They have done great work on my 2000 Toyota Tacoma, as well as my 2006 Subaru Impreza Outback Sport. I am a mid-twenties Caucasian woman and I have been to so many mechanics who have talked down to me, have refused to give me details of the repairs they suggest, and who have generally made me feel stupid for asking questions. Carlos and David at Zepeda are the complete opposite. They always take time to thoroughly explain the issues- often multiple times, graciously answering my questions and never talking down to me- and they always lay out the options, letting me know if a repair is something that I need to take care of right away or if I could get by for a few months before taking care of it. They have never once tried to up-sell me on any parts or services, or push me to do a certain repair. They've even taken the time to show me the old part that they replaced and explain what was wrong with it, or show me a video that explains the mechanics of what they had fixed. Prices are really reasonable, and the work is guaranteed for a year. They will also generally diagnose for free- a few days after getting some repairs done, I was having trouble starting my car. I brought it back in and it turned out it was a wiring issue. They fixed it for free within an hour and, again, took the time to show me a diagram of the problem. These guys work fast. I generally have my car back by within 24-36 hours. One exception was when they were doing a major overhaul of used car that I had just bought (timing belt, water pump, brakes, alignment, and about 5 other things)- that took 72 hours, which still felt like a really reasonable amount of time given all the work they were doing. If you're looking for a mechanic anywhere near Logan square, this is your spot.

I've gone here a few times for repairs. Last time I thought it was a bigger problem than it was, and it turned out to be a $28 dollar fix. They could have totally convinced me I needed a new alternator. Another time they took a picture of a bolt left in the innerworkings of the car by a previous mechanic, which was the cause of some crazy sparking and noise on a long drive. Solid service, very polite and they never try to upsell.

Finding a quality auto repair is important to me. If you're in the same boat, look no further! Carlos and David (and their team) are fantastic! I have taken my car in many times over the past several years after my husband read positive reviews online. They have fixed both my vehicle and my husband's with professional service all around. As a young female patron, I'm used to having auto repair men speak to me condescendingly, patronizingly, or completely avoid explaining the problem with my vehicle and moving straight to discussing the bill. That is not the case at Zepeda's. They never talk down to me and treat me with respect. A few times when I was having trouble deciding whether or not to fix something, they encouraged me to ask lots of questions and take my time and do more research before I made the decision to spend the money. They even got on the phone to explain one issue to my father. Additionally, they've saved parts of my car that were garbage to demonstrate the problem and help me understand what went wrong. They take the time to teach and never try to tack on all of the unnecessary other items that could be fixed just to make a buck. I recommend them to everyone I know, and now to strangers, too. They're the best!

I've been bringing my car to Zepeda for years and I'm sorry I haven't written a review sooner. I absolutely love this place. As a woman, I am always skeptical of being treated like an idiot or duped into paying for things I don't need. The guys that work here have never, ever done either to me. Additionally, I am from a small town where the auto repair places are small and the people treat you like a human and bring you in back to point to the actual issues with your car. Zepeda has ALWAYS done that for me. I've brought my car in for simple oil changes, check ups before a road trip and major repairs. They are always timely, informative and NEVER pushy. Even if I bring my car in for just an oil change, they do a complete check up and let me know if there is anything else going on. HOWEVER- if I don't want the work done, they don't do it- and they don't press the issue. They let me know they will put the info in my file and I can let them know in the future if I want the work done or not. Addtionally, I have matched prices vs. other places for work they've done on my tires brakes, etc. and they are always the cheapest. I had a brake light out once and needed an oil change so I took my car to NAPA auto parts becuause it was the tiniest bit closer. I let them know all I needed to do was purchase the brake light- I could put it in myself. They were like, "It's really no problem for us to put it in- it will just take a second!" I was there FOR AGES. Then, they miscommunicated that my car was finished so I sat there 30 minutes longer than needed. Finally, they CHARGED me for putting the brake light in after I expressely said I could do it and they were like, "It's really no big deal!" $20 in labor for just the brake light. $80 later after an oil change and a brake light replacement- I learned another lesson in reliability vs. convenience. I haven't been to another auto repair place since. ZEPEDA FOREVER! LOVE YOU GUYS! They even send me a Christmas card every year!! Who does that anymore?? Go here. Go here forever.

Took my car in for emissions repair. They did everything in their power to fix the issues. They ensured I passed inspection. It's been two months, and I still have not seen my check engine light since.

A friend referred me here. His go-to recommendation for his lady friends that have car trouble. Spoke on the phone. I have an older car that I was looking to sell, but it needed some maintenance before I put it on the market. Cautious not to spend too much money. I think his name is Carlos and the other David, were very kind, honest, and fit me in last minute. After a very thorough inspection, he gave me a consultation over the phone and in just a couple of hours I was picking it up. It's also worth noting. I had a dent with some red paint on my rear driver side door. When I picked it up. It was gone!!!! I went back inside, and I said 'I can't believe you did that!!!!, thank you so much' he said 'I had the guys clean it up for, no big deal, you're welcome!' These guys are very kind, efficient, fair, honest, and went out of their way to make me happier than I was for the service I paid for! That's a great mechanic! Wish I had found these guys ages ago!

I love Zepeda's. Every time i take my car in they are courteous and friendly. They explain in detail what the problem is and what the solution is. I took it in twice in a week recently, the second time it turned out a belt wasn't working properly so they replaced it and gave me complimentary service. I highly recommend them!

I, like everyone else, dreaded taking my car in to the shop. Called on a Monday, they were booked. Dropped it off on Tuesday almost at closing. Had a call by about 11 am with the issue and 2 fix options with estimates. Next afternoon got the call that the car was ready for pick up. Did a little research and the price definitely seemed fair for the work done. They did an inspection and provided some thoughts on things that may need to be addressed, but did NOT try to sell me on extra services. Nice

I cannot tell you how much I love Zepeda's. David and his team are so kind, patient, caring, and honest. I don't know a lot about car ownership, and they explain things with respect and no condescension. I would recommend them to anyone. With the cold weather, my windshield developed a crack. I called them after hours that night, and David called me back first thing in the morning and told me he could replace my windshield for $170 (parts and labor). I brought my car in at 10:30am and they were done around 1. So easy.
