…Finding problems and recommending cost effective solutions for maintaining our personal vehicles.  Recommendations are offered also considering the age/condition of the vehicle and whether repairs should even be performed given a vehicle’s remaining value.
~Donald G Childress

They always offer excellent service with great results at fair prices – definitely will keep coming back for my auto repairs.
~Jerry Czyzewski

Honesty, friendliness and quality of work.
~Sandy S

Excellent service and fair prices.
~Leesa Mallek Jones

I like that repair recommendations are prioritized according to safety implications/impacts, and cost. Unnecessary work or work that can be deferred until when necessary is great for planning repairs and conserving cash until when it is necessary that it be spent. Thank you for your continued support and recommendations to keep our vehicle in safe working order, maintain the investment in the vehicle and investment of labor, resources and time to keep us safe.
~Don Childress

Knowing you are going to get quality work at fair prices. There is no hidden numbers and all work is discussed with you before completion. When I leave with my truck I have peace of mind that the work was done accurately and efficiently. That’s difficult in today’s world.
~Ray Mytych

I like Tanela auto because they are dependable. Each time I’ve had issues with my car they get me in right away. They work hard to make sure my car is running great before they give it back. I feel like their prices are fair and they don’t try to take as much from me as they can. Bob is a really nice guy and has always provided excellent customer service. His mechanic is very nice as well and easy to deal with. My husband, my father in law and my sister in law have all used Bobs auto. I try to recommend his shop when ever I can.
~Shelley Wilson

They do a great job. He is fair and cares about his customs.
~Donna Chimis

Helped me out during a holiday weekend with a new battery. The one I NTB failed after 2 weeks. No problems, I’ll be back in the future,
~Doug Shoemaker

Bob explains car repairs in layman’s terms and provides top-notch repair service.

1484042Fair Price

Extremely pleased with this repair shop. Fair prices, great service. Been looking for a neighborhood auto repair that I can trust and hit the mark on this one.

Bob is available for any questions, explains in detail and is very easy to work with. We’ve taken two different vehicles (2008 Honda Accord, 1999 Nissan Maxima) to Tanela over the last year and both were fixed right the first time for a fair price.

1484042Great Auto Service At A Good Price

I just had my 2005 Nissan Armada worked on by Bob and his very talented mechanics. The service was fast and Bobs assessment of my vehicle was spot on. His prices were more than fair which is what you want in these tough economic times. My experience with Tanela was excellent and i will be recommending this shop to all who ask where they can get great auto service at a good price.

1484042Quality Work Done At Reasonable Prices

My husband Sean had his car repaired recently at Tanela’s. They did a great job fixing everything. He had his struts, stabilizer bar, battery, and serpentine belt either replaced or repaired. The car was taken care of in a responsible amount of time and runs perfect now! We are very pleased with the work done and will recommend this auto shop to anyone looking for quality work done at reasonable prices. We will definitely go back in the future! Thanks again guys!!!

Shelley Wilson

1484042Very Trustworthy

We have been going to Tanela for many years now and have been extremely happy with the quality of service. Bob is honest and trustworthly on all repairs and will explain all repairs needed so you can understand them and will give you the best price he can. We highly recommend you check Tanela out for your next oil change or car repair.

Donna Porter

1484042He Is Knowledgeable And Helpful

We were in town from Iowa and had RV troubles. Even though it was inconvenient and awkward to service, Bob had us back on the road in time to make the Cubs game that afternoon. Even provided us with a loaner while he worked, so we did not miss our vacation time! His prices are fair, he is knowledgeable and helpful, and he truly seemed to care that we were fixed up….even though we were out of towers!!! He even called us on Monday morning to ensure we had made it home okay! I would NEVER HESITATE TO RECOMMEND this shop to anyone!

Bill M.

1484042Great Service

I have never fully trusted auto people but when I found Bob and his team I was over whelmed with the honesty and respect that they have for not only the cars the work on but there clients. I will never take my car or my husbands to any other dealer. I can’t say enough nice things for this place.

Kathy K.

1484042Good Work

My 2002 Chevy now has a new life! With over 95000 miles on my car, I knew I finally had to address a few problems that I had let go far too long(such as tires, leaks, engine lights and brakes). To make matters worse, I was hit from behind by an uninsured motorist. My car was drivable so I immediately took it to Bob Horel at Tanela. He gave me excellent recommendations regarding the body work. Following that, he and his men fixed everything that was needed on my car at very fair prices. I will always take my car to Tanela and I would definitely recommend them to anyone. Marlene Foley P.S. My car would not have passed the Emissions Test without Tanela’s good work.

Marlene Foley

1484042Honest Work At A Great Price

Thank you Tanela for keeping my van running with 215,000 miles. As a single mom, vehicle repairs are the last thing I need, but at Tanela I know I’m getting honest work at a great price. Thanks for all your help.

Jennifer Spare

1484042Great Job!

Warped Honda Pilot rotors were replaced by Bob with a new set of Cooper tires and my 2009 Pilot brakes perfectly. No more shaking when braking. Seems Bob fixed what Honda could not or would not fix. Honda Owners should see Bob.

John McLinn

1484042Excellent Service

I had excellent service. They took care of it, no problem, and got it back to me.

Verified Customer

1484042Appreciate Work

I thought that he was very fair and he seemed very genuine. I appreciated the fact that he checked into pricing and called me back. That’s pretty much it.

Verified Customer


He was knowledgeable, took the problem and fixed it, told me exactly what it would cost, and what he was doing in detail. He provided a loaner car for me. He provided a very fair price compared to other mechanics.

Marlene Foley

1484042Great Service

I have been going to him for ten years and am very well pleased. I know the owner. The service and everyone I talk to there is great.

Verified Customer

1484042Honest Service

Honest service. The guy tells me what’s up with my car and this time it was the head gasket. He was able to work with me on payment.

Verified Customer

1484042Very Honest
