You Don't Have to Take Our Word for It!

Here's what some of our satisfied customers have to say about Murphy's Transmission & Complete Auto Repair:

Great place to get your car worked on!!!!! HONESTY INTEGRITY, and great service is what you should expect when you go here. Mike is a class act, and will do great work at an affordable price. Do not take your car anywhere else!!!!


I called Mike Murphy this morning and asked if he could look at the AC unit in my car. He said he would be happy to do so and I dropped off the vehicle. He advised me what the anticipated work would consist of and an estimate of the cost. Two hours later I received a call from his coworker Chris who advised me of the work done and the cost of the service. Overall, great service at a fair price. I highly recommend Murphy's!

I just had Murphy's transmission and complete auto repair fix my 2004 GMC Savannah box truck. I had 3 other mechanics look at my truck MN a whole bunch of work and tests were done but none of them fixed the problem. Hundreds of dollars and tow fees later. Mike and Chris solved it and fixed the problem. It ended up being a fuel pump. But acted like many other things. Real nice guys also. I'm not taking any of my vehicle's anywhere else in the future.

Called Murphy's on my way home because I heard my exhaust pipes rattling around. Mike said to come in and he would take a look at it right away. Pulled up 30 minutes before closing and within 3 minutes he found the problem. Told me to leave it with him for about an hour and he would have it fixed. Sure enough, Chris, who was equally as wonderful, called me a little before 6:30 and told me everything was ready! Im so impressed with their service, their professionalism and MOSTLY the price! I fully expected to pay close to $200, cause I'm used to paying a lot for anything car related - but NOT at Murphy's this came in under $100! Thanks for the quick help and for proving to me that Auto Repair doesn't have to break the bank if you go to the right place!

First time going here to get my car worked on. Some time back I went to a dealership for a recall and they warned me about this possible issue I might have in the future. They were even nice enough to give me a quote of about $1,300 for the job lol. Eventually, I had the issue some days back and I knew it was going to be a bit pricy for what needed to be done. I went to a place I've been before, because in all fairness they are nice and trustworthy people, but wanted $735 for the job. I went across the street to Murphy's and they wanted $580 which was way lower then what I expected. I also knew it take about a day to get done. I received a call a few hours later after bringing it in expecting to be told of another issue, but the call was to tell me my car was fixed. Not only was it the cheapest, but it also worked out well for me because they were able to finish the job in a few hours that day I brought it in. The people here are very nice and friendly as well. I will definitely be bringing my car here for now on.


Called with an air conditioner issue. they got me in the same day, they explained everything and showed me my old condenser and how it stopped working. After I got home I went to the website and saw the coupons, I called and they gave me the discount. I'd recommended these guys to anyone looking for honest great work. I'll be back.

I highly recommend Mike for his mechanical expertise and honesty at a great rate. Over the past years he has worked on all three of my vehicle's. Most recent on my 98 chevy Silverado with 193,000 miles. He replaced my spider fuel injecters, because it was flooding my engine. I also had small antifreeze leak from intake for 2 year's. Mike replaced injector pulled intake off and replaced all gaskets, valve cover gaskets, thermostat cap & rotor. Truck runs like new and not a drop on garage floor anymore. Two weeks later ball joint snapped. Another great job done by Mike fixing that! Thanks to Mike & Chris for always showing and explaining why the parts failed. I will not take my vehicle's anywhere elese!!

After spending $1000.00 at Hawk Dodge Chrysler, for absolutely nothing, I brought my car to Murphy's. I was assured by them that I'd be okay, but Hawk assured me too! Well, I must say that I am as happy with my vehicle as I was the day that I purchased it! Murphy's has gained a forever customer. Mike and Chris are the best! 10 Stars!

Larraine T.

Great service and prices here. Brought my car in for a synthetic oil change and the price was $50 less then what jiffy lube was charging. On that same day I brought my wife's car (after picking up my car) to have the front brakes replaced and I got the car back later that same day and the price was very reasonable. You can tell it is a busy place but they are very patient and were more than willing to answer the questions I had and to go above and beyond to explain everything to me. I won't be shopping around for mechanics anymore. I'll be here every time I need work done.


Murphy's has been a great mechanic shop to get any car problem fixed. Mike and Chris are the best mechanics in the area and always figure out and explain in detail any problem you can have within your vehicle. They are the most honest as well and I will recommend them to anyone in the area for the best service.

Alex G.

I would highly encourage anyone that needs repairs to take their vehicle to Murphy's Transmission. Mike & Chris have earned my full and complete trust! I would rather pay them a visit than the Cadillac service center for ongoing maintenance. You will not be disappointed! You can tell they put a lot of pride into their work. I had a great consultation with Mike and found him to be honest and reliable. Thank you so much!

Carmela G.

Have been going to Mike since his inception in LaGrange Park. Never had less than 100% satisfaction. Very knowledgeable and truly nice people to deal with both Mike and Chris. You will never be sorry going to Murphys!

Pete J.

Best mechanics in town!!!

Kari R.

Chris and Mike are THE BEST mechanics around! Everyone I know takes there vehicles to Murphy's. A good, fair, and honest mechanic is hard to come by. Not at Murphy's! You guys are the best!

Phillip P.

Mike and Chris are both very knowledgeable and honest. Always done right the first time at a reasonable price.

Roger L.

Had a complete brake job done this morning on a recommendation of a friend. Mike and Chris we both extremely nice and very professional. Would recommend them to anyone.

Mark R.

You fixed what they said couldn't be fixed! Thanks Mike for solving the problem with my car. I'm just mad that I didn't take it to you a long time ago! With a German car, people told me I needed to go to a specialty mechanic. Turned out I just needed to go to one who knew what he was doing! Thanks for the fast turnaround and the honest work. I'll be back.

John D.

We have been going to Murphys for many years for our cars and our children's cars maintenance. Very good mechanics and really nice people.

Jackie M.

My Wife and I just bought a car for our son's. What is special about this car is our older son traveled in this vehicle when he was a baby as it belonged to his Grandfather. The car is a 2000 and I remember when my Father-in-law drove it off the lot. Needless to say it needed some work. Mike and Chris took the time to make sure the car got what it needed to make it safe for our boys. Not only was the work fairly priced, it was done in a timely manner with care and with complete professionalism. Now our boys will be driving the same car they cruised in with Grandpa. Thank you to Mike, Chris and Murphy's! I will definitely recommend you to anyone. Great job!

Been going to Mike at Murphy's since their inception. Always treated fairly. The best mechanics I've ever had in my life. Would and have recommended potential customer.

Pete J.

Mike, the owner, worked his butt off to track down my electrical problem in our 2003 Buick Rendezvous with 220,000 miles on it. He knew the limited value of the car and kept the cost down to a level well below what I expected to pay. Most impressive, however, was his level of determination to solve the problem ...This guy has skill and integrity -- a rare and valuable combination in this field.

Mark G.

The service is stellar. They always go just a little beyond whether its a small fix or information. The staff is friendly and professional. They know their stuff! They were highly recommended to me by a friend, and I would do the same for anyone else.

Michelle B.

Great job on my Mother's 66' Caprice turbo 400. Thanks Mike, Chris and Frank.

Mark T.

I have been taking my two cars to Murphy's almost since they first opened on 31st and 25th. They have gone out of their way to find parts and repair my 1995 Saturn coupe. They are now servicing my "daily driver" a new Mazda 3. They are fair, prompt, and convenient for me. Chris and Mike are great guys in my book. I give them 5 stars.

Richard J.

Chris has always been super nice and supper helpful with my car iv gone to him and Mike twice for my car and they were very helpful . Thank you guys for all your hard work and time for fixing my car I would recommend Murphy's to anyone who is having car problems and would consider coming back again in the future.

Nikkole T.

Very nice people, fair prices, quick service.

I don't know much about cars mechanically so having a trustworthy mechanic is vitally important to me. After several different places throughout the years I have finally found Murphy's Transmission and have been going there for a few years now. Their both great but, I usually deal with Chris, who is awesome. He has given me advice on how to prevent and maintain my car to avoid having mechanical problems, and once even advised that I don't do an expensive repair to fix a small leak, but instead just said to check the fluid every couple of weeks and I add just a little bit of fluid once a month instead of a very expensive repair. I trust them completely and recommend them to anyone for any mechanical auto work.

Mark C.

Chris and Mike are some of the most incredible people and mechanics on the planet. Not only are they honest, but they're also fair. They truly want nothing but the best for their customers and strive to ensure that every car that comes into their shop goes out as good as new. Quickly too. If you're willing to work with them, then they'll work their ass off for you. They've even stayed long after hours on multiple occasions to have my car ready that night for pickup. I will always appreciate them. Always.
