How do you pick an automobile service shop? Generally, it's by word of mouth, a personal relationship with the repair person, comfort with your original car dealer, a phone book guess or an Internet search.
But there's another way, maybe even a better way. Look at the nominees and testimonials that come from our 2012 Patch Readers' Choice Awards, then vote in our Patch poll!
Nominations were accepted on Geneva, Batavia and St. Charles Patch through July 9.
The poll will open to accept votes from registered Patch users starting on July 23 and close at 11:59 p.m. on Aug. 17.
Winners in all Readers' Choice categories will be announced on Aug. 24.
