Car trouble? Here are 15 mighty independent mechanics in Springfield to get you back on the road

by Carrie Bradon | Dec. 14, 2017, 12:29am |

We rely on cars for many things: getting to the grocery store, to the doctor's office, to our kid's graduation, to the airport for vacation, and everything in between. As the number of people in the U.S. continues to grow, so too does the number of cars on the road. One report found there are 253 million cars and trucks on the road in the U.S., and another found that in 2016, the average American spent over $9,000 on transportation.

With cars being such a huge part of our lives, it can be very challenging when they start to perform poorly or when a specific component is malfunctioning. And even taking a car to get fixed by a mechanic can be difficult if you know nothing about the individual or company. 

If you are in need of a mechanic, here are 15 in Springfield, Illinois, who will do everything in their power to get you back on the road.
