Helmut & Vito's Service and Parts opened for business in September of 1977. For the past 30+ years it has been the definitive European import, auto repair shop in the suburbs of Chicago. Both Helmut and Vito retired from the business to relax and spend more time with the grandchildren. They still stop by to say “Hello” and to make sure that we are doing it right. Since 2008, transition between original and new owners been seamless. Jim and Tony were both previously employed for years by “The Wise Ones”. Over the years they learned all the tricks-of-the-trade from the masters. Our Promise: We both want to thank all of our customers for continuing to support our small shop. In return, we promise to continually improve, update and guarantee that your experience will be nothing but better. Whether it's a complex technical problem or just a routine tune-up or oil change, let Helmut and Vito's factory trained experience go to work on your Mercedes-Benz, BMW, Porsche, Volvo, Audi or VW....

MD Auto Solutions

Located at 716 Grand Ave. Ingleside, IL 60041. We started our business servicing only Acura’s and Honda’s. Through the years our customers requested we work on their other vehicles they owned as well. Now we provide service for Domestics as well as Foreign cars. We saw how customers were being treated at the local dealerships. Customers were paying for work that wasn’t actually being done to the car and prices were unfair to the customer as well. He wanted to change all that to benefit the customer. Since Christoph's Automotive, and now known as MD Auto Solutions has been in business, they have won several awards for great service and satisfied customers, most recently they were recognized as one of the best shops in Chicagoland, by Chicago Magazine, and has also received recognition by Consumer's Checkbook.

It went very well. I had it towed there, and they were very nice. I've been going there for a little while, and they're always very nice. They sometimes don't even charge me to take a look at what's wrong!

Description of Work
My alternator failed in my VW Golf. They replaced it. They also did some standard lube & tune-up work while they had it, and found a mouse nest in my blower motor that they removed.

I play musical cars w/ Helmut and Vito's (one car goes in, and when that's done, I swap it out with next car in line, etc.) - I bring in all of my cars, my parent's cars, and my in-laws cars. My 06 Volvo XC90 had some electronic modules that shorted out - quote from dealership for part alone knocked me over. Helmut and Vito use a shop on the east coast that was able to repair the units. All said, ...
