    There's also a good guy at 'Pinnacle Automotive' in Woodridge, IL that I definitely trust.

    I know there's also lots of other people around people will have suggestions for, I've heard of a few in the near South burbs. Good luck. Timing belt on this car isn't too bad compared to others I have done, but if you don't have the time or setup, definitely have a professional mechanic take care of this for you.

    Thanks for that info guys! Iíll be contacting those shops in the following weeks and get some pricing.
