- This is a great shop and they are super knowledgeable. Tom Kranz is the owner and a super guy. He’s got a great team and they get the job done fast and correct the first time. If you live in the Barrington area and your vehicle needs work, I highly recommend using Kranz Automotive.

- Great service station! Trust them fully with care, prices and overall quality. Tom is great, trustworthy guy and I’ve been going to him for years (I find trouble trusting a automotive shop as a woman driver). Quick service as well, thanks Kranz Auto!

- I have been taking all my cars to Kranz for over a decade. Tom Kranz is a straight shooter – he has talked me out of repairs that would have made him money but not be in my best interest. The work I have had done ranges from simple oil changes to things like replacing a timing belt, new clutch, brakes, etc.
- I TOTALLY trust Tom and his expert staff with my car!
