Best Small All-Around Mechanic Shop - 2005
You see a mechanic shop in a modest older building, it can mean one of two things. They're going to rob you blind, stick the air hose in your nose and make you squawk like a dime balloon. Or you have finally found the treasure for which every car owner's life is an endless quest--the honest mechanic who actually knows how to fix cars. Lakewood Automotive (originally Zuhdi Texaco) is that treasure. They work on everything, ancient to brand-new. They're honest, their rates are reasonable. When you get your car back it works, and you never ever have to talk to someone whose little shirt pocket thingy says "Maintenance Counselor."
