It’s difficult to find a good repair shop, and even harder to find one that you can trust. Lohmann’s is that place. Great service, at a reasonable price, the staff at Lohmann’s is knowledgeable friendly and efficient.
I went to Lohmann’s after I had already gotten a quote from a national chain place. Lohmann’s price was significantly better and they fixed my vehicle quickly. It’s been over a year and I haven’t had any problems with their work.
I have suggested them to friends who have all been pleased with Lohmann’s service. If you are looking for a repair shop that is honest and does good work at a fair price this is your place. Give them a shot you won’t regret it.
My short-form review of Lohmann’s Automotive Repair: Owner Jason Lohmann is an excellent technician and a superb human being.
Here is the longer version. In today’s world, where the first rule is to trust no one, I learned to believe again. A sudden vehicle failure a long way from home, as in my case, evokes shudders. The stereotype is of the mechanic who gouges the heck out of the over-a-barrel stranger, because he can. And with no easy transportation home at that time, I had visions of spending the night in a cheap motel with no dinner and not even a toothbrush. But after waiting for my tow-in more than two hours past closing time, Jason assessed the situation clearly and humanely; diagnosed the problem quickly and accurately; then planned and executed the solution in a dedicated, focused matter, no muss, no fuss, and no puffery-- all the while being an advocate for the severely disadvantaged customer. (Wouldn’t it be something if we had a few hundred of his sort populating the Congress and important branches of government?) He even found a replacement part locally and talked the vendor into making an after-hours delivery, $100 and a couple of days less then from the nearest dealer. An hour later I was on my way home. As I paid the bill, I thought that Jason hadn’t charged enough for his labor, so I tried to give the Samaritan of South Sound a tip. His response: “No, sir. I started this business two years ago, and the economy has been terrible. But I’ve been blest, and I aim to keep it that way.” Ah. And I aim to support him in that quest.
I had a 30k checkup done on my 06' Mazda5 & they did a great job. In and out in under 1.5 hours and @ a fraction of the cost that the dealership was going to charge me. Very professional & fairly priced.
Haven't had any major work done by them yet, but I'll definitely be giving them a call next time I'm looking to have 1 of my cars worked on. I came away impressed.
I can't say enough good about Jason and his staff. I've taken several types of cars in (Mazda, 2 different Saturns, Volvo, VW Passat)for myself and for family. He is patient with my decidedly non-automotive brain, explaining my options, making recommendations. He is straightforward, honest and clearly knows his stuff. In one instance he heard me pull onto the lot, heard a potential problem and got it taken care of, averting what could have been a very big problem. I can't say enough good about Jason, and his staff of Jeremy and Chris. I may not be happy about whatever repair he is telling me I need, but I feel safe and that he is looking out for my safety, and that of everyone who brings a car to him for service. Honesty and value at this shop! On a scale of 1-5, he deserves a 10!
To anyone reading, Lohmann's Automotive really saved my career.
I have had persistent car trouble with my Dodge Neon. While it has been advised that I just buy a new car, I am utterly in love with the one I already have. My car has been burning oil and coolant for some time now, and has been overheating ittermittently. I called and spoke with a friendly young man named Chris. He was helpful in answering all of my questions, and displayed great communication skills with Jeremy when they were discussing what services I would be needing. I paid a fair price for my diagnostic, which confirmed I needed a head gasket. They were able to schedule me in for the following day. When I arrived, they were quick getting my car in the shop, had hot coffee available to counter the cold weather, and answered any further questions, though they were relatively redundant. They were very patient. I had to be out of the shop, and on my way to work by 3pm. Jason gave me a ride home so I could grab things I forgot at home being so rushed and scatter brained. When we returned, Jeremy had my car running, and ready to go. I made it to work with enough time write this review before having to start. Thank you for everything.
Finding a good saturn repair shop has been difficult ever since they were discontinued but Lohmann's was great. Not only did Jason (the owner) help me with an issue I had involving my window, but he was able to get the part to me by having a tech drive to chehalis and install it the same day. On top of that, Jason checked my car for some other issues I was having and even gave me a quick fix for my fan issue. I appreciate his help and will be returning to this shop for all the repairs I have coming up this spring.
Jason, the owner of Lohmann's, was extremely helpful when I pulled my Subaru into his shop at 4:30 after it started overheating. He came out, with a friendly attitude and informed of what was possibly the cause of my engine overheating. He gave me a quick quote and was willing to stay late (shop closes at 5) on a Friday to help get my car fixed in. He was extremely efficient and my car is running perfectly. It was a chance visit, but I will definitely return now that I live in the area.
This guy is the greatest. Took my old ford torino and he had parts like you would not beleive in stock. I had a part that i and others couldnt find, would you beleive he found it for me in 3 minutes and even gave me the phone number to call and where to go get it to save money, because i am on fixed income. Jason is the owner. This guy saved me time, money, without the hasle. Id bank on this business doing well because how good he treats his customers. Thank you Lohmanns Automotive Repair.
This guy is rude and unreliable, has terrible service, and has deceptive billing practices. Evidently the owner has a very limited scope of mechanical knowledge. Took over 4 months to do power steering conversion, exhaust, and lift. He never did finish and I finally had to get my vehicle out of this crazy shop. I never gave any authorization for additional labor or parts not provided by me, but I was still billed hundreds of dollars extra. I have broken parts, misaligned pulleys, bad brakes, no power steering. He is avoiding my attempts to contact him to see if he is going to fix this terrible work and/or reimburse me. Please ONLY GO TO THIS SHOP IF YOU WANT TO GET TERRIBLE WORK AND BE RIPPED OFF. The other reviews are from friends and are biased. Look at other reviews and you will see other people have been ripped off by this guy!
Look no more! Finally a honest mechanic in who you can trust. Earlier this month I was getting ready for a long road trip and my 2001 Dodge Caravan developed some issues. I took it to Lohmann's Automotive and the owner, Jason, took time to take a look at it and found the issues. He gave me an estimate and the time it would take to make the repairs. For once, an autorepair shop actually stuck to the estimate and was on time in finishing the repairs. Jason is a truly honest owner/mechanic and will not take advantage of customers. His rates are fair and his work is outstanding. I have had no issues since the repairs and I know if something goes wrong I will take it back to Lohmanns. In fact I currently have a project vehicle that will go to him as I trust no one else. Thank you for everything Lohmanns. ~ Josh
Jason provided outstanding service to my Honda Odyssey. I took the Honda to Jason for a pretty big job -- replace timing belt, replace oil pump and oil pan. Jason's estimate beat the local dealer by more than 10 percent. But what really impressed me is Jason's integrity and commitment to customer service. After Jason replaced our oil pump, we still had a leak occurring. Jason performed extensive detective work and long story short, the new oil pump, a factory part, was itself defective. Jason performed all the replacement work - many hours of labor -- without charging us because, and I quote: "I stand by my work." Jason simply wasn't going to let us be unsatisfied our service. And we aren't! I'll definitely be returning to Jason for future service, knowing that he is a competent, ethical mechanic who provides excellent service for a reasonable price.
