   A note of thanks to you and your great service organization.
   Julie and I have been clients of Kranz Service Inc. for many years
and you folks have been the servicers of all our cars. I believe that
we schedule our auto oil change/grease more regularly than doctor
   When we have our autos serviced by Kranz, we know that the
scheduled work will be performed professionally, and should your
tech find something “not-right”, we will have a phone alert regarding
the issue & price estimate.
   Tom, you have built up a wonderful business and we are fortunate
to be your clients. The best, to the professional team that you have
on the floor with you.
   Jim & Julie

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.

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!
