    I'm new to the Prius. I've always tried to find a mechanic that specializes in the car I own but I've been having trouble finding a shop that specializes in the Prius or hybrid cars in general. I'm hoping for a shop in the South or west burbs but am open to most of Chicagoland. Some of my previous mechanics were as much as 4 hours away so I don't mind a bit of a drive, though I'd like to find someone a bit closer for this

    Anyone have any suggestions?

    I understand you want an Indy shop, but if you're not able to locate one Arlington Toyota is great. NW suburb.

    I'm up in Madison, WI and am the only independent that specializes in hybrids and EVs.

    Hopefully you'll find someone closer.

    I don't have any recommendations in your area but you can always feel free to call me and talk in the phone if you need assistance.
