This is an AAA shop which means you get a good warranty on the work performed. The shop is clean and well equipped with the special tools needed to work on my cars. Their approach to finding root cause is excellent and fair. I drive high mileage well maintained cars. The team at Lael's understands that with the right care a car with high miles is still worth keeping on the road.
All members, Lael and his team, went out of their way to squeeze me in at a moments notice, inform me of the issues that my vehicle had. They went above and beyond to get me quotes to correct my vehicles issues, and did it all with a fantastic attitude and customer centered approach! I will be seeing them again soon!
I took my car into the Lexas dealer for a 90k survice.. I got a call the next day from there service department with a extra 6000$ worth of work that I needed. Having already experienced the systematic gouging from dealers on my cars within their warrenty I was going to get a few more opinions. Lael was the second certified machanic I met and what I did was I gave him the bill from the Lexas Dealer and the next day he called me over.. He went over every part of the Dealers invoice and with a flashlight and the car in the air explained in detail each part of the Lexas estimate and finally that 6000$ bill shrank to 1200$.. He also explained that the dealership failed to see that my tires" almost new" were defective... There is much more to the story but the bottom line is not only did Lael spend hours educating me but he ultimately was the force behind me getting another 2500$ of "extra credt" from the dealer and 5 free tires from Michelin corporate.. I have since moved to Houston and won't see Lael as a mechanic again. But I strongly recommend that you go To AAA aproved Sevice centers. The work is guaranties by AAA for 2 years. As for Lael... I have never had such a good experience. No BS.
I brought my 2005 tundra in with a hole in the radiator, and these guys had it fixed the same day with all new parts. Very good service and veey fast. They told me after they rana dainogstic check they would call and let me know what the exact issue was, they held up to there word. Very happy I choose to come here. Highly recommended!
