I always recommend Lake & Thatcher Auto. When your car is in need of care, it's a great comfort to have peace of mind that your mechanic will take care of it - completely - and back up their work. Thanks, guys, for keeping our cars running for these past 20+ years!

When a person knows little about auto maintenance, it's a great feeling to have total confidence in the people working on my car! That's one of the valuable extras i get from using Lake & Thatcher.

I can't say enough wonderful things about Tom and Pete. While the car dealer tries to steer me toward services I don't really need and "upsell," Tom and Pete don't do that. They'll tell you what service you do or don't need as if it were their own car. I've been going to them for years and trust them implicitly. I've been going to them for years with two cars and have never had a bad experience. They're not the cheapest game in town, but it's true that you get what you pay for. To me, it's worth it to pay a little extra knowing that the job will be done right the first time and with no shortcuts or problems later. They tell it to you straight.

All the workers are wonderful....they try to always get me in at a convenient time and my car runs like a top. A little expensive, but well worth the workmanship.
