"I have owned 2 jeeps and the ONLY PLACE I will take them for inspection/repair/tuneup/random questions is THOM'S 4 Wheel Drive. The expertise is better than any message board or regular auto repair shop. The only thing that out weighs the expertise is the HONESTY. The thoroughness and in depth explanation of what may be needed for my vehicle keeps me coming back to learn and knowing that nothing is being hidden from me. I really appreciate how repairs are listed in order SAFETY first then maintenance. I love this place. I highly recommend it!"
"I’ve been a loyal customer for 10 years, bringing in first a VW Jetta and now a Subaru Impreza for service. Thom and Greg are knowledgeable, trustworthy, and fair. I never feel as if I’m being pressured into unnecessary repairs—in fact, they are always transparent about what needs to be done right away, what can wait, and what’s optional. At the front desk, Jennifer is super friendly and an integral part of the team. Their services are in demand and they are consistently booked up, so you might wait a few days for an appointment, but it’s worth it."
"Really appreciate how thorough they are here; typically a shop just drains and fills oil and if you want them to check anything else you have to ask and hope they do it. The guys at Thom's always nod and smile when I ask, and then when we pick up the car they also point out a bunch of little things that I didn't think about. Also very accommodating on scheduling and timing. Lastly I'd heard they were expensive but compared to other shops they've been same/lower every time. Even if they were more money it would still be a good value for the attention to detail and trust you get here."
"I've owned 3 Jeep Cherokee XJs and Thom's has done work on all of them. Thom's intimate knowledge of Jeeps is extensive, and the team at Thom's is great to work with. You can certainly find other places to have work done that are less money. But you won't find another place in Chicago that can match the expertise and quality of work. Take it from a Jeep Owner of over 25 years: the only place to take your Jeep is Thom's."
"My son was stranded nearby with a blown wheel bearing. These guys were great in arranging a tow and fixed his Ford Explorer in plenty of time for him to get back to work. They went far above the regular service and provided me with up to date information. I HIGHLY recommend them."
