The mechanic was very willing to help me out with my car and to explain the problems of the car to me. The work that he did was excellent and I'm sure he is underpaid and doesn't get the recognition for his outstanding daily performance!!!

They have done both routine maintenance and repairs on our '93 Ford Ranger (68K mi.), '97 Merc Mountaineer (88K mi.), and '91 (177K mi.) Honda Accord, all currently owned. I have used them about 6 times since moving to this area 2 years ago. Their price is competitive, they have a clean shop, courteous and personalized service, and the one time that my car had a re-occuring problem shortly after they had fixed it (3 weeks later) they stood behind their work, fixing the problem for good with no extra charge. Freck's Automotive was referred to me by a co-worker who takes all of his cars to him... new (2001 Minivan), and old, including his 1980 Mustang (with 210K mi.), and 1987 Dodge Ram pickup for routine maintenance and repairs. They understand how much your cars is worth to you, and if you want will discuss the cheapest why to 'get by' with your high mileage vehicle, they are willing to work with you. As compared the few older model cars seen at their shop, I see mostly new models (2000 and newer) in the lot. Lastly, after their examination, any suggested repairs are o.k.'d by the owner before they are done (which is the way it should be). Overall, I give them 8.5 out of 10 stars.

They make it comfortable, and don't assume that just because I'm a woman I know nothing about cars! I would drive back to St. Charles to get my car worked on at this shop!

We were visiting relatives on the 4th of July and were headed on the way to Chicago when the car just quit while going down the road. I called Freck's at 7:30 the next morning to get it worked on (you'll want to call early, he apparently gets the day filled rather quickly). We were back on the road by 11:00 that same morning (the tow truck didn't get it there until after 9:00). The car ran perfectly for the rest of our 2000 mile trip. Mr. Freck is a very friendly person; he obviously understands the importance of good personal skills.

My wife and I have been using Austin Frecks for over 20 years and we have recommended him to many of our friends. He has always been very fair to us and many times has not charged us for minor repairs.

Name of shop is Frecks and Son -- owner is Austin Frecks. He has several mechanics in addition to his son, and stresses ASME certification. He has the patience of a saint in explaining things to customers, male or female. He knows which mechanic does what the best. If a job takes a lot less time than 'book', he charges less; if more time, he charges by the book. His charge to replace the timing belt on a 94 Pathfinder 2WD was about 30 percent less than what the local dealer quoted.

I have used Freck's for about 10 years for three different cars. They are honest and easy to work with, and never try to sell me things I don't need. I've never had any sort of workmanship problems thus can't answer the 'They respond well when they screw something up' question.
