Our car is 1998 with fairly low mileage so we appreciate a garage that appreciates a balance of cost and maintenance with consideration of an older, not-fancy car. I appreciate the straight forward approach by Lake Elmo Repair. They explored other low cost options with the axle that worked well for us and their diagnosis of the coolant leak was only a hose. Their service was quick and friendly. And they offer coupons on their website for a deduction in the cost of repairs. We have been looking for a new auto repair place since the owner of our former repair place retired. I think we have found a new place that we can trust with Lake Elmo Repair.

My truck is driving much, much better. I am convinced the money was well spent and that I will be able to keep the truck. Lance was friendly, helpful, and professional and took the time to explain the repair.

Description of Work
I needed a second opinion on the condition of my Ford Explorer's transmission. The problem was diagnosed and fixed, where a previous shop had told me the whole transmission would need to be replaced. They also fixed a wheel bearing.

I have been using them for a few years now, what sold me was a few years back I was driving 97 Volvo a replacement part for tail light was going to cost like 600-700 $$ when I asked Mike if he could "Jerry rig it" he said YES. He charged me almost nothing. I gave the car away to relative tail light still working. They all could not be nicer, without trying and when you call them..they answer the PHONE ! No telephone tag. Hard working men.

Called because our SUV wouldn't start and was able to get it towed in same-day. They diagnosed the issue to be old and fouled plugs. Made sure that was all that was wrong. Replaced with and excellent set of platinum plugs that have it running the best ever since new. What a difference. Very fair on price for the work done and extremely honest. A vague non-starting issue leaves a lot of room for less honest shops to charge for a lot of unnecessary work. These guys did only what was necessary, very quickly, very well, and at a very fair price. I just found my local go-to repair shop when needed!

We've been using Lake Elmo Auto Repair since moving here 3 years ago based on recommendations from my coworkers. We bring our cars in for all maintenance and repairs. They do excellent work. We've never had a problem with any of their repairs. They are punctual, professional and always honest. Their prices are fair. Wonderful people to deal with. You always feel that you're car is in good hands. I highly recommend them.
