I took my 25+ year old motorhome in for evaluation as to what needed to be done. Received a detailed report. Transmission needed a kit and power steering was leaking. They did a thorough inspection and explained everything. No hard sale on the repairs, just explanation as to what needed to be done. Unit drives must better, shifts better and seems to be running better. I will go there again for my service on the unit as others had done repairs incorrectly and I will not return to them. They still do business on a hand shake. WOW how about that in today's world.

Car was running when I dropped it off, not running when I picked up, had to be towed off. Quoted $470 for a job that cost $320 at the dealer. Suggested over $3000 in additional repairs.

This particular vehicle had an intermittent issue with the starter working. Sometimes it would start other times not. We didn't get it to not start until the customer called to come get it. At this point the starter had failed completely, and the customer opted to tow the vehicle to the dealer, which combined with the tow actually spent more than had he allowed us to fix the vehicle.

In regards to the additional repairs suggested. We always give cars a thorough exam while they are here. It is our job as professionals to give our customer's a complete report on the health of their vehicle. We are not high pressure, we do not use scare tactics. We report the findings, and we have found that our loyal customer's are glad to know someone is giving them a full report and an estimate for what their vehicle needs. It does the customer no good to fix something and then say "oh by the way....." after they have already made a financial commitment to fix the original complaint.

Wouldn't you rather know upfront if the vehicle is worth fixing, versus finding out after the repair?

The 1st gear box was very poor quality. The 2nd works well, however I was charged for the labor to make it right.

As an elderly female, I felt I could trust them, which is very important to me. They were honest, respected me and I was comfortable with them.

I had brake work done that was expensive no matter where I went. But LakeCity gave me options for parts and a fair estimate. While under my truck they checked for upkeep and gave an estimate for future service needs. I felt they cared about my vehicle as much as I did and I value that. Trust and car repair have not always been compatible in my experience. My visit went a long way to change that.
