Contacted
and explained the problem. He was very knowledgeable and helpful and gave me a price over the phone. Dropped the car off at 8:00 and picked up at 2:30. Happy daughter is a happy Dad. Thanks for the great service.

does most of his work on site, wherever your car is. He worked in our garage for five hours to install the new stereo. I came out to take a look at his work throughout the project. He was methodical, meticulous, and the results are extremely professional. He saved all of the old pieces so that I could return the car to stock if I ever sell it. He quoted us for other projects such as radar and lidar detectors and blockers, and I wouldn't hesitate to hire him again for those projects.

It is with very mixed emotions that I write this review/complaint – but it has been seven (7) months of phone calls without a response and I feel I’ve got no other recourse.

was recommended to me by a good friend in the auto repair business. The OEM radio/navigation unit in my 2010 CX-9 died, and I reached out to
Glenview Car Audio Repair Provider Name Locked
and his wife to see whether it could be repaired. It took a bit of time to arrange the initial visit (I knew from the reviews and from my friend that getting initially in contact could take a little time), but when they made the appointment, they stuck to it. I had already removed the head unit, they took it with them. Ultimately it could not be fixed so I purchased a new head unit for installation and arranged for that to be done in early December 2013 before a long drive to Florida.

and his wife arrived the morning of our departure and completed the install. I paid the $175 for the head-unit diagnosis and installation (which I thought was quite reasonable). It immediately became apparent that: (1) the SIRIUS antenna would need to be relocated (he put it in the dash hoping it would provide enough line of site for it to work properly); and (2) the backup camera had not been wired up. I didn’t think it was a big deal – I called
Glenview Car Audio Repair Provider Name Locked
, left a message, and just said we would deal with it when we were back in the area later in a week or so.
That then began the pattern of non-responded to phone calls and emails which has continued to this day.
Initially I thought the holidays got in the way.
Then I thought that they were suffering family health or other issues.
My friend didn’t know what happened.
I then saw that they were certainly still in business, and completing work, based on the Angie’s List review from early May.
Multiple times since December I have asked for them to contact me, to get it scheduled, etc. or I was going to write a negative Angie’s List Review, make a BBB complaint, etc. No response.
While they seem to be good people, I find the pattern of non-responsiveness utterly unacceptable – I would suggest if looking for an install or service work to select someone else.

I brought it my vehicle for a diagnostic check of the stereo audio and battery charging systems. (The former appeared to be draining the latter.)

' manager (
Glenview Car Audio Repair Provider Name Locked
) and his technical crew completed within hours that same afternoon a thorough (one-hour) electrical diagnostic check ($65) and identified two causative factors (one with the radio and another more important one in a non-radio component (GEM) under the dash. (Only weeks earlier, my regular auto mechanic, who's pretty good, was unable to identify these causes.)

and his crew then walked me through their diagnosis, using their equipment to demonstrate their discoveries. They then outlined for me the solutions. That's all I needed that day from them.
No hard sells. No unprofessional behavior. Just top-notch folks doing a great job running a young business. I won't hesitate going back whenever there's a future need.

The manager
Glenview Car Audio Repair Provider Name Locked
was good in showing me different shades of tinting and recommending which to have applied. Tinting was done on all of the side windows and the rear window within a few hours. After application, I was instructed not to roll down the windows for five days and to leave the car out in the sun as much as possible. Bubbles could be seen but I was told that they would go away within 10 days. If not, then I had the option of bringing the car in to be checked. So far, the tinting seems adequate in reducing the intensity of sunlight but doesn't do much to reduce the interior heat. Only a few very small bubbles remain. According to the sales receipt, there is a life time warranty on the tinting. I did not receive a copy of the warranty but plan to go back and ask for it. Window cleaning was not discussed but some literature recommends not using ammonia based cleaners on the tint. I decided to have the tinting applied primarily based on the price as I only plan on keeping the car for a few years. Quotes from other retailers were at least twice as high compared to what I paid. The actual quality of the tinting material might be questioned based on the very low price but I am satisfied with it. If heat reflection is a big concern, then consideration might be given to more expensive tinting products. Overall, I would encourage anyone looking for tinting at a reasonable price to check this place out.

The installation fit/finish of the double DIN unit was excellent, but the sound quality was a major disappointment. It took a few months to figure out why. They failed to hook the new head unit to the already installed
Glenview Car Audio Repair Provider Name Locked
factory amplifier. I did this work myself and voila, it sounds *much* better now. This oversight is something a professional sound installer would never do, especially for a $1000+ basic head unit swap. I am also disappointed with the Clairon head unit and that was the "best they had" according to the sales person at any price. It has Bluetooth connect/reconnect issues (the Alpine in my other vehicle does not) and the old factory

Head unit had better sound quality hands down. Maybe they should consider carrying better brands?

The installation went fine. The only thing I don't like is I still have to use my car key to lock and unlock the car, even though the remote starter has the capability. It seems that the tech didn't know how to get the car to recognize it, or it wasn't the correct remote starter. All in all, it works fine and the starting distance is good.

came out right on schedule, checked out my car and told me what I'd need. I told him I was on a budget, and he recommended the products and equipment that would get me exactly what I wanted and at the cost I was looking for. He could have upsold me and I wouldn't have known the difference, but he was honest and I sure appreciated that. He ordered the equipment needed and I had it installed in my vehicle within a week. He did a quality install, no scratches to the trim, no new squeaks or anything like that. You couldn't even tell he'd done so much work on the car. Overall, a great job, clean and careful. The speakers sound great, the new interface is a bit tough to learn, but that's not the fault of

. He did a perfect job, great price, and was friendly and outgoing. Most of the other stereo installers I contacted were non-responsive, unprofessional, or downright sketchy. I had absolutely NO misgivings about hiring

to do my work, and if I ever need any vehicle audio work done again, I'll call him without hesitation. Thanks for a job well done!

Rich and I traded emails to establish what I needed done. He asked great questions as to the equipment and expectations I had, then we set up an appointment. He was extremely flexible in that I needed to postpone by a few hours the appointment and I contacted him the day prior: he quickly determined switching appointment times with another client would actually benefit us both and worked to make that happen. That alone went a long way to informing me what kind of experience I was to have with
Glenview Car Audio Repair Provider Name Locked
: very positive!
He arrived right on time, and with some good-natured banter reestablished what my expectations were and then got right to work. I'm someone who tries not to
Glenview Car Audio Repair Provider Name Locked
, but I was interested in how things were going and Rich was very informative and even supportive of my asking questions.
Rich is quick, but not at the sacrifice of quality - My install went smooth, even when it was discovered 1) the wiring harness that was supposed to be included with my head unit was missing and 2) my sub was dry-rotted (it had been a long time!). Rich comes prepared, so he had the harness I needed, and as far as the sub goes, he went about the install as if he were dealing with a brand new speaker.
He was professional, courteous, and a genuinely good guy. Would definitely recommend and use again!
