Who Do You Trust With Your Car?

Show support for your favorite auto mechanic and nominate your car's best friend as the most trusted in the area.

No one likes to find out their car needs repair. It's a surprise expense that can and often does send many of us into a violent rage.

But there are some mechanics that are just amazing. We never feel like they're trying to scam us out of money. They seek out the best deals on replacement parts. They're fast and efficient. They don't rob you with bloated labor charges. These folks make that surprise expense and generally unpleasant experience a little more tolerable.

They deserve something special for that, don't they?

Patch has an extensive Homewood-Flossmoor area business directory, and we want you to support the businesses you trust most. You live here. You're the experts. We need your help figuring out who deserves to be called "Most Trusted." This week auto repair is the topic. 

Check out the instructions below to see how you can give the person you trust most with your vehicle a ringing endorsement.

Which mechanic do you trust with your car?

  1. Click on the name of the business below and leave a review about a specific mechanic.
  2. And make sure you show your support by commenting below this article and telling us why you trust a certain mechanic.
  3. Also, select your favorite business in the poll below.

REMEMBER: Comments and reviews are worth more than votes in the poll, so make sure you review your favorite mechanic's business listing.

The highest rated mechanic at the businesses with the most comments and reviews will win the title of "Homewood-Flossmoor Patch's Most Trusted Mechanic."

i can't believe that Camm's wasnt part of the survey, i've taken my car to most of the places in the Ho-Flo area, and they are by far the best. honest pricing, quick service, and a good explanation as i'm not a "car guy". I've been to most of other places, and John's and Pete's are quite good, but I'm only going to Camms from now on.

The only person I'll bring my car to is Rick at R&R maintenance. And anyone who doesn't, should really reconsider their decision in mechanics.

Jennifer April 27, 2012 at 02:24 PM
R&R Maintenance is the only place I trust. They get the job done right!
Cheryl Berger April 27, 2012 at 05:06 PM
I took my car to Flossmoor Family Auto Repair years ago and then had Saturn service for a number of years until they went under. Went back to Flossmoor Family Auto Repair now owned by one of the mechanics who worked there years ago. They are extremely good, fair, very accommodating to schedules, don't try to go for the most expensive and a plus for me convenient to the train so I can drop off in the morning, walk to the train and pick up at night. I highly recommend them.

R&R Maintenance in Glenwood is 100% the most reliable and trustworthy place you can go to for your car repairs. Unlike every other place, they won't tell you that in addition to what you brought your car in for in the first place, you also need windshield wipers, a new battery or some sort of belt just to make a sale. They fix your car while checking for everything else. But R&R Maintenance will tell you the truth because that's the kind of people they are at the shop and outside the shop. "Good people". Other mechanics aren't trustworthy because they take advantage of the fact that you probably don't know if you do need the additional work done or not and probably don't even know what they are talking about so you get it done. I only take my car to R&R Maintenance because I would rather spend my money on a new belt for myself than a new belt for my car if I really don't need it in the first place.

R & R is the best around! These are people who live in the community that do honest and reliable work, They take great pride in their name and treat their customers like they are family. Do yourself a favor and find R&R in Glenwood.!!
Mike H April 27, 2012 at 08:25 PM
R & R Maintenance is my place to go. They are trustworthy and get you in and out. I highly recommend taking your car to Rick!

R & R maintenance in Glenwood! Rick is the best!
Bob April 28, 2012 at 12:33 AM
i travel 50 miles to have Bill at Flossmoor Family Auto maintain and work on my cars. When my friends ask where I go, I tell them it's worth the drive.
Tommy C. April 28, 2012 at 02:39 AM
Rick Jr. @ R&R Maintenance Automotive Repair is 100% the Most Trusted Mechanic, this man is super honest, truthyworthy, and very knowledgeable. I've been going to Rick for over a year now and I'm very happy how he treats me. I tell all my friends and family to "Go see Rick." When I found out that R&R Maintenance works on Fire Trucks and Police Cars I knew for a fact and felt very confident that he could handle my little honda civic. I mean come on, emergency vehicles!! He is definatly my man. Keep up the GREAT work Rick!!
Kevin April 28, 2012 at 03:06 PM
R&R Maintenance is the BEST!!! I was a customer of Ricks Auto Care in Homewood, then I followed Rick when he owned Flossmoor Family, and when I heard his son opened up a shop in Glenwood 2yrs ago, I was ecstatic!! Im glad to hear that the family tradition was going on to the next generation. I will be a customer of Rick Jr. for LIFE!
Rachel J. April 28, 2012 at 06:19 PM
R&R Maintenance is the only automotive repair shop I trust with my car. I took my car to get an oil change somewhere else before I knew about R&R Maintenance, and they wrote me up a long list of things they said I needed to get done. I took the list over to R&R and most of the stuff on the list Rick said I didn't need to get done. Rick Jr who is the owner is the most loyal and honest mechanic I have ever met. He's looking out for your safety rather than trying to make money. Do yourself a favor and take your vehicle to him!
Anthony S April 28, 2012 at 06:30 PM
R & R Maintenance is the only car care specialist I trust. He works with my personal and professional vehicles. There the best, top to bottom.
Chris Grubermann. HOF 07 April 28, 2012 at 07:04 PM
R&R Maintenance.... Enough said!!!! Them other guys. FUGIDABOUDIT!!!!!!!!
Jeffrey April 28, 2012 at 10:30 PM
R & R Maintenance is the only local auto shop I trust my car with. The owner RIck Sampognaro is incredibly friendly and attentive to detail. Every time I have taken my car there, it has been nothing short of a pleasurable experience- which is hard to say these days about an auto body shop. I always have and will continue to use R & R for all of my auto body needs. R & R Maintenance is the best in the business.
Matt April 29, 2012 at 01:10 AM
Warranty or No Warranty, R & R Maintenance will have you taken care of. I bought my car from Carmax and will not allow them to work on my car. R & R has reasonable pricing and NO GOUGING! Honest and hardworking is how I would describe Rick. He has every customer in mind and will be sure your happy. To all in Flossmoor, Homewood, Glennwood and The Heights... Give R&R a shot, you won't be disappointed!!!!
Kassandra April 29, 2012 at 02:21 AM
I agree with these 50 other comments about R and R Maintenance Automotive Repair. My personal story is very simple.. I was referred to Rick Jr from a colleague, I wanted to buy a car so I brought 4 different cars to Rick and he told me which one to buy and why. Needless to say its been 8months and absolutely ZERO problems with my Focus. And he didn't even charge me. Rick Jr. is a stand up guy and ONLY looks out for his customers BEST interest. Rick is the BEST!
Lois Toolan April 29, 2012 at 03:48 AM
We also use and recommend De Re Tire and Auto for their great service and reputation.
Rose April 30, 2012 at 01:44 PM
There is not a better repair shop better than R&R Maintenance, PERIOD! Rick Jr. is one of the most nicest, most caring, and most trustworthy person in the world. I recommend R&R to everyone.
Todd S. April 30, 2012 at 04:39 PM
Another vote for R&R Maintenance Repair. Rick Jr. diagnosed and fixed an electrical problem that was draining my car battery. Troughout the ordeal he was professional, knowledgeable and reasonable these are traits i look for in a mechanic. I will not hesitate to bring my cars in for future repairs. Check him out you won't be disappointed.
Donna Rooney May 03, 2012 at 12:12 AM
