9 years of experience
Chicago, IL

I've been an automotive technician since 2008 and am a graduate of the Universal Technical Institute. I've worked at Midas, at a heavy equipment shop, on a diesel fleet at the airport, and at independent shops. I've worked on almost all makes and models of cars and trucks and love working directly with customers so I can really get to know their vehicles. Nothing gives me more satisfaction than repairing or servicing a car to make it run even better!

Jim is currently not taking new appointments.

I Have to say my experience with Your Mechanic was less than perfect. I did not know what to expect since it was my first time using this company. I received my quote and agreed to it, made my appointment with Franky O. The earliest one was a week off, so I took it. Waited the week and the morning my mechanic was to come received a text saying he was on his way. Then received a text saying it was cancelled and I would have to reschedule. Angry that I had already waited I reluctantly agreed to reschedule with a new mechanic for that Monday since it was Easter weekend and that was the earliest they could get me in and offered a discount for my inconvenience. Thinking everything was set I went on with my day. Then received a call saying there would have to be a price increase for my part. Angered I called to talk to them and received Mitch in costumer service, after explaining again the situation and the feeling that I shouldn't be paying more for the part since they should have already had the part from the morning they were supposed to put it in was ridiculous. Mitch then agreed to lower the price another $10 from the new quote with the discount. It was still more than my original but since I had already waited a week and needed my car and it was lower than going to a shop, I agreed. Here I will tell Mitch that I am sorry that he had to deal with me. I was less than friendly. Jim Steil showed up exactly on time at 7am and put the new part in my car and had it all done by 8:30am. I was extremely pleased with Jim and his work. He was polite and turned my experience with this company around. Honestly this company can thank Jim for making me think that it was all worth it. They said this was very unusual and never really happens, but if it were not for the excellent work Jim and his friendly nature I probably would never call them again. I really hope this was a one time thing because the price was very good and my mechanic was very nice and professional. THANK YOU JIM STEIL!!

Jim has worked on my car twice now. He is on time, friendly, informative and clean. I am very thankful that I have found your mechanic for its ease of booking, convenience of having a mechanic come to me, and great pricing. The detailed reports I receive after each visit are extremely helpful to someone like me who is not an expert on cars. I will continue to use Jim's services and refer my friends to your mechanic

Installed new brake pads and rear rotors in an hour. Always on time and with a complete setup to attack any type of job. If you are booking with your mechanic just get Jim and don't waste your time with other mechanics who may not have all they need to complete a job.

Jim was on time and started right away scanning for the problem. He replaced an ignition coil and discovered a leaking vacume hose which he fixed. This was above and beyond what was expected. He was very informative on the procedure he did.

Jim had a VERY difficult problem to solve with our car and was up to the challenge. He persevered where others may have thrown in the towel. He was creative and persistent, and we really appreciate his skill and attitude.

Jim was very punctual - showed up on time (7 in the morning) and was able to complete the task of replacing spark plugs on time. He also went above and beyond to check things in my car. I feel comfortable hiring him again, given the knowledge he has on cars and his proficiency.
