Looking for SVX help (Springfield, IL or St Louis)

I recently moved to Illinois from Kentucky for work. My SVX is doing pretty well, actually has had 5k miles put on it the last 2 months. It's at almost 180k miles now, I've had it since 146k. I've done regular maintenance up to this point but no major repairs other than the power steering line a couple years ago. It hasn't shown much sign of anything bad happening, but it has a fair share of wear and tear as it is my daily driver. Before winter I will probably be looking at getting some new tires, but I'm also wanting to see what other repairs might be necessary to get me another year (hopefully more) out of the SVX.

Having said that, I am in search of an honest mechanic for my SVX in the Springfield, IL to St Louis, MO area. If anyone has had good experience with someone in that area or has any advice about the SVX in general, please let me know.

Thanks

I have no advise on a local mechanic for you, but what part of KY are you from?
Nate might be out that way and be able to provide some services for you on your SVX at some point....

Yeah I was going to school there. Apparently there's a pretty nice SVX for sale in the Hamburg area of Lex
