  • I always leave happy! I have had my Service A and Service B done here before. Service is always quick yet thorough. If they have a deal running they are always sure to give it to me, without even asking. I travel an hour to have my vehicle serviced here and it is worth it. It is so nice to know that they are meeting my expectations for my service as well as explaining everything to me clearly.

  • This is one of the best repair shops I have worked with in the country. Their work on Mercedes vehicles and sprinters is top notch. This is a family owned business with a staff with the quality and qualifications you would find at the dealer. Carmine has been a joy to work with. Also have worked with Vince. It's nice to get work I trust at a price I can afford. They also do awesome body work.

  • By all indications, the staff at Burdi Motorworks is honest, forthright, and fully engaged with their customers. At every step in the process, they keep you informed about what's transpiring in the shop and the best course of action available.

    Burdi’s prices are competitive and clearly lower than the dealership (Mercedes in my case). They don’t try to up-sell or oversell, which I really appreciate. Their priority is to resolve customer issues in the most cost-effective way possible without sacrificing quality or cutting corners.

    I will return to Burdi Motorworks when the need arises, and I will recommend them to my friends. They have earned my respect.

  • Have had my cars (BMW and Mercedes) serviced at Burdi Motorworks for over 5 years. You can always count on Carmine and Vince Burdi to treat you like family. They care about you, your car, and your pocketbook. They do a great job and have always been open and honest with me on my repairs/maintenance.

    These guys are ok on older stuff but they couldn't diagnose my newer Mercedes so I took it to another specialist.

    I usually don't write reviews but Carmine at Burdi Motorworks deserved it. Carmine is such a honest and truthful guy. He is just natural. I was so impressed with his attitude. He was more like a friend then a owner of his shop, it was my first time there and he gave me so much of time while they worked on my 2015 GL550 for rear brakes, as promised he used OE parts from Mercedes and job was done so good, I would say as good as dealership or better than that, gave through look on the car and mentioned nothing is bad and I am all set.

    I did travel 45 miles from my home to his shop just because he made me felt special over the phone itself and because of that I am his customer for life. He quoted me over the phone and sent the estimate via Email for better transparency, this only honest mechanics do.

    Only downside and the only issue is I don't get to see him often, because when he fixes the car it doesn't break again. And yes the most important, don't worry about his fancy shop looks, prices are very reasonable, I would say much better than the other Indy shops whose prices are equivalent or similar to the dealership pricing which does not make sense to me at all.

    Good job Carmine keep it up.

    A blessing they are unto their customers! As u can see Burdi Motorworks have nothing but great testimonials and as a 25 yr old, first time foreign car owner; I must add to the gratification of this company. Carmine told me I needed my ball joints replaced ASAP, and my warranty only covered $300 of the over $600 repair. Carmine only charged me $250 for the job and I cannot thank him and his family enough!

    I had a lingering problem with my engine light for months. I went to a Mercedes Benz dealership who did not pick up the fault. Carmine and his colleagues at Burdi Motors was able to diagnose the fault and changed the inexpensive part ($25) that caused the problem. On another visit when I changed brake pads and ball joints, I received a free complimentary cleaning of my foggy headlamps (the stubborn headlamp fog that will not go away) by sanding them with a machine. Overall great professional service, very knowledgeable about Mercedes Benz vehicles. This is a keeper.

    Burdi Motorworks is the best. Saved me several hundred dollars on brake job and Service B on ML430 compared to going to Mercedes-Benz of Chicago or Westmont. You installed OEM parts and even had my car washed before you gave it back to me!

    Thanks Again!

    I found Carmine Jr. and Sr only a year ago. I only wish I had found them sooner. I have a 2003 E class and the MB dealer was charging me a lot to do routine maintenance. Last year, Carmine saved me several hundred dollars on a brake job. Just last week, my wife needed a brake light replaced and Carmine Jr. stoped by our house on his way to pick up another car (Highland Park) and replaced it at no charge...The guys at Burdi Motorworks are awesome. Thank you Carmine!

    I brought my 2006 BMW 325xi in for service at Burdi Motorworks and Carmine Jr. was great! He taught me how to use my service reminder interface on my instrument cluster. I tried to have one of the service advisors at the local BMW dealer do this and they told me to read the manual. Carmine Jr. and his father really are special at their trade. I brought my BMW to them for service and when they were done I received a comprehensive breakdown of what my car needed so I could budget through the upcoming months. Also, they even told me I had an open recall through BMW NA and that I should bring it to the dealer to get fixed. Other shops would have missed that. I will definitely be bringing all my cars to Burdi Motorworks!

    I had an amazing experience with these guys at Burdi Motorworks when my 1981 300D broke down driving through Chicago. I'm sad that I don't live there because I would take my car to them every time if I could. I can't say enough good things about the whole Burdi family. Carmine sr. knows old Mercedes like the back of his hand. These are the best mechanics I have ever been to.
