Customer Reviews

Verified CustomerJune 13, 2014

I find Lael and his employees to be extremely professional, courteous, timely and trust worthy. We have had our car(s) repaired there many times and have never been disappointed. And did I mention that they do not gouge the customers? They are wonderful!

Verified CustomerJune 12, 2014

He was very thorough with what needs to be done. Diagnoses future problems and does not charge. You get more for your money.

Very courteous. Took care of my problem within minutes.

Verified CustomerJune 02, 2014

They have always given us great service, but there has been times where he doesn't explain the work very well. We have been going to them for 5 years and haven't found customer service quite like theirs anywhere else.

Verified CustomerMay 30, 2014

Excellent service and people, the whole experience of how they handled the situation just makes you feel that they are highly train skilled professionals.

Great work, honest and reliable.

Verified CustomerApril 17, 2014

The work done did not perform satisfactorly . Parts were inferior to manufacture recommendations.

Verified CustomerApril 09, 2014

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.

Verified CustomerApril 03, 2014

Great service. Great customer service.

Always treated fairly and honestly.

Verified CustomerMarch 19, 2014

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!

Verified CustomerMarch 17, 2014

They go above and beyond for the customer.

Verified CustomerMarch 07, 2014

Lael's is a professional, with great knowledge. He is the go to guy.

My service was under warranty and I did not have to pay for the repair of the oil leaks. Lael's takes good care of their patrons. I always recommend them to friends and family.

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!
