Peter is deadpan, like a character on "Dragnet," but the work is always first-rate and the prices seem good. This place is just plain trustworthy.

I have used this shop for 20 over years, and they have always treated me, my wife, and my various autos very well. Between my cars, my wife's cars and vans, and the 'rides' of four children now grown, I have taken Chevys, Fords, VWs, Olds, Jeeps, and Subarus to them (I used to have a fleet!), and Peter has always been there for me with routine care, emergency fixes, and patient explanation or advice. Rare instances when problems persisted or recurred, he made it right cheerfully and without charge. My strongest recommendation is that my wife will willingly drop off or pick up a car there, and she refuses to talk much less deal with anyone else remotely automotive due to bad experiences she has had in the past. Of the tradesmen I deal with on a regular basis, Peter and Maday Auto are the most trusted and treasured. Chris Talbot

I visited Maday based on the recommendation of Car Talk's web site. What a pleasure. Pete's a decent human being who is patient answering my many questions. I no longer avoid car repairs - which is saying a lot. I highly recommend Maday.

I have been extremely satisfied with the service at Maday. Peter is very good about explaining what was done to the car and showed me the part that he replaced and what was wrong with it before I even asked. I will continue to use Maday as long as I am in the Chicago area.

Mayday, and especially Peter, give this profession a great name. He's the kind of guy who is loyal to his customers and will try and fix whatever comes in. If he can't - he'll tell you upfront. If something weird or expensive happens, he'll call before incurring the expense. A great shop and great people.

When you deal with this shop, you deal with Pete. As another reviewer said, he is very deadpan in his persona, but he is honest, straightforward, and very fair in his prices. I started with him after taking my new (used) car to another shop to get quotes on what needed to be fixed. I got a 2nd opinion from him and he quoted me less for each repair and in other cases said they were unnecessary! What mechanic does that? Pete, that's who. You won't regret taking your car to him.
