PDR always does a great job. When getting work done to your car, the main thing is trust and I trust John to be honest and fair. I would never take my car anywhere else.

PDR got my vehicle fixed! I really appreciated their attentiveness and attention to detail. I have no complaints - it was truly a 5 Star experience.

My car had a bad timing belt and one of the cylinders was misfiring. PRD fixed it and now it runs smoother and also gets better miles per gallon than it ever has.

Had PDR to replace my wiring harness and turn signal switch out because My head lights were not operating when I would rise my Steering wheel up and down. PDR done the work when I needed it to be done and they Have done a very good job. The cost was a little higher than expected but I am happy that I had them do it. They also told me that they warranty the labor and parts for 12,000 miles or one year! That is a good deal. They were all so very polite and they work with you to get the job done.

PDR is the best shop in the city. Say your best friend's brother ran a repair shop and you went in there, that is how John treats you. Great guy, but more importantly competent honest mechanic. Despite being a big guy, I do not know a lot about cars. Like the Seinfeld episode, I'm all "Oh I need a new Johnson rod? OK, sure I got to fix that." With John I know he is not going to screw me over. Anybody can change your oil, but a mechanic that will tell you what is needed and what isn't without pulling an up-sell is good as gold.

I have been going to PDR for awhile now. They are by far the best auto shop I have ever dealt with! They are quick, honest, thorough, and professional. While their prices are competitive, their service makes the price totally worth it! I wish that every person could experience the greatness that is PDR Automotive! Thank you guys for another job well done!

I had requested that they put a couple of used tires on my vehicle and they went above and beyond the actual task and double checked that the tires were in good enough shape to be put on. They actually found a couple of problems with the tires that would have resulted in serious problems had they installed them as I had requested. So thankful they took time to go the extra mile!

This business made me feel comfortable during a very stressful experience. My vehicle quit running and I was stranded on the side of the road in an unfamiliar place. I had her vehicle towed to this business and they repaired it for a fair price. The mechanic made her feel comfortable and kept her informed of all the details. If I ever requires services in the location of this business I will not hesitate to be a repeat customer.

My car broke down during a morning drive from Chicago to Urbana and I needed my car back for the return drive that afternoon. PDR Automotive fixed my car that day and got it ready for me in time. Everyone I spoke to in Urbana about it commented on what a fine and trustworthy company PDR Automotive is. I am certainly grateful for the service I received and I wholeheartedly recommend the company to everyone.

I've been here a couple times for an oil change and once to change my timing belt. I like these guys. I think they are completely competent, trustworthy, and they do a good job. One of the guys who works behind the front desk (Miguel I think) is particularly accommodating and will take you back to the shop to show you what they are doing. They do not try to push unneeded repairs on you, they just do what is necessary. During holidays, they give away calendars and keyrings. It seems like a nice, honest family business, which is why I like them so much.
