I've been taking my truck to Joe Milam at Skylark for months now. I've had a few oil changes, new tires, tire sensor check among other minor fixes. He's always taken great care of my car and had amazing customer service. If you are looking for an honest and trustworthy mechanic...Skylark Garage is the place to go!

Joe Milan with skylark garage is awesome.he and is staff are very pleasant and professional. What I love about this garage is there honesty and ethics. Getting vehicles fixed is all ready a pricey venture so it is reassuring to have someone working on that vehicle who you can trust and the work you are paying for needed to be done and truly was done. Also, skylark garage now can fix your car when it is still under a manufactured warranty!!! Yes. Thank you Joe. Cathie Schechtel

Joe Milam and his staff at Skylark are all great! He’s so friendly, easy to work with, and most of all, he knows his stuff. In addition to working on modern cars, he knows all about classic cars. Joe and his staff can get a classic car purring and working great. Anything you need from an oil change to a major overhaul, go to Skylark!

I came here because my passenger car tire was missing the cap - Joe and his crew gave me a replacement and filled up all my tires for free! Really appreciate the service here. Highly recommend!

Very happy with the service level and honesty at Skylark. The dealership provided a laundry list of items they recommended fixing for thousands of dollars. Joe was able to identify the issues that really existed (at a much better price compared to dealership) and give us peace of mind before taking family on a long vacation road trip.

If you are going to be driving this summer to your vacation spot, stop in first at Skylark Garage for a quick oil change and engine check. They will give your car a once over to make sure that you will be safe for your journey. There is nothing worse than being on the side of the road on a family vacation. Let Joe and his team check out your car so you can have the peace of mind that you will get there and back safely. I highly recommend Skylark Garage.

My car had a problem with the engine so i had to call at this place so as to help me solve the problem since they are very close to my home. They responded and rectified the problem so fast.

Joe Milam at Skylark Garage is wonderful! I have a Lexus RX 350 and I used to take my car to the Lexus dealer for routine maintenance. This was largely because I always need a loaner car and I did not want the hassle of renting a car. Skylark can provide a loaner! That is reason enough to go there. On top of that, their pricing and honesty are beyond compare. They do not try to oversell. They fix only what is needed and they do great work. I have been using them for over a year now and I could not be happier.read more

I took my 2004 Honda CRV in for an evaluation. The lower ball joints were replaced, oil change, & tune-up. I received a loaner car and the car was ready by 2:00 pm. Knowledgeable, honest car service at a fair price.

Cannot say enough about the service family, friends, and I have experienced at Skylark. Joe, Ted, and staff are really smart when it involves major work in addition to the normal oil change, etc. Have saved money as well as confident always in their expertise.

Joe at Skylark really goes the extra mile for his customers. He even has many of the local repair shops bring cars to him because he is so good at diagnostics. Your experience will leave you feeling good about your repairs and all work is guaranteed. No reason to look anywhere else since Joe will help your car stay safe and sound. Fair pricing and wonderful service-what more could you ask for?

Not being from Park Ridge , I looked on Google for a well reviewed auto repair shop in Park Ridge and found Skylark Garage. My truck was making a clanging rattling sound. Skylark had good reviews so I took my truck for a checkup. I went to the shop and talked to the manager Joe and he put it up on the lift. He checked the cars engine, fluids and exhaust system. He found some clamps by the muffler that came loose and were rattling around. He secured new clamps and cut the old one's off. He came out and told me my truck was ready and didn't charge me a penny. I offered to pay and he said, "All I did was check it out and cut off a couple of clamps, don't worry about it you're good to go." Being new to the area, it's hard to know who to trust. Joe the mechanic in Park Ridge is a stand up guy. I've been back for an oil change since and if we have any engine trouble or a service engine soon light comes on it's good to know we have Joe to keep our cars safe and sound. Thanks,Brian Kasallisread more

The service here is wonderful. The first day I tried them out it was very rainy and low and behold both my front and rear window wipers ripped that day! Joe took great care of me and was able to special order the wipers that day, and very quickly to get me on my way. Since then I have used them for multiple fixes on my car and have been very happy with all the service they provide!

Joe at Skylark showed me in detail why my wheel rod needed to be replaced, then checked three suppliers for the lowest price on the replacement part. Great customer service!

Honesty. I emailed them to get an appointment and got a reply within 20 minutes. They got my car in at the opening of the day and i had an answer by noon, cost and explanation. I picked up my car and my bill was less than they told me!! Love this place. My patient told me about them and they have been 3 blocks from my house!!

If you are having any issues at all with your vehicle, no matter how small, call Joe Milam over at Skylark garage. They do excellent work, at more than reasonable rates. I have had my car repaired there on three separate occasions, and every time the work was done immediately, quickly, and done right the first time. I trust Skylark implicitly with my family‘s vehicles, which is important when safety is a concerned.
