Fantastic service, we’ve been bringing our cars to Lawson’s for the past 15 years and we can always count on Juan to provide efficient and quality service. Even after moving to their new location the shop is extremely clean and his customer service is unparalleled. If you’re looking for a friendly, reliable, and honest mechanic Lawson’s is the place for you.

Mark, and his staff, are great. I never have to question the charges, or the work. It gets done right, the first time. As long as I am a local, I will always go here

I have now been coming here for almost two years, and have never had as trusted of a repair shop as this in my life. Mark is extremely knowledgeable, trustworthy, and just a good guy. I have been a car owner now for 12 years, owning 5 cars. Lived in many cities around the country, and if I ever move from here I am going to miss my trusted auto shop.

Can I give more than five stars? Thank you, Mark and Co., for finally making me feel confident when taking my car in for service.  When I leave, I feel like me car is fixed and I haven’t been gouged. Mark has worked on all of our families’ cars for more than five years. I won’t go anywhere else.

I love this place! It’s so nice to have a mechanic who you know isn’t going to screw you over. Mark and his employees are extremely friendly and polite, and give you personal service beyond just, “Oh, what do you think is wrong?” Women, if you’ve had to deal with misogynistic auto places, there’s none of that here! I’ve been coming here for at least 7 years and I have no plans on changing.

My family has been getting our cars serviced from Mark for over 20 years now. He is the only mechanic that I trust, and is very honest and friendly man. He won’t try to up sell you on unnecessary service whatsoever. There is a drop box to leave your key, so you can drop your car off the evening before you want your car serviced. Unless a special part needs to be ordered, I’ve always had same day service.

I had an A/C problem. Mark expalined to me exactly what they were going to do, how much it might cost, and answered all my questions. I dropped the car off early using their night drop slot. They called me with the results of the test and got my OK before going on with the fix. The A/C is fixed. It was done on time and for the amount they said it would cost. Mark also showed me the leaky freon line they had removed and replaced.

Juan has been consistently reliable whether I’m coming in for an oil change or getting my brakes replaced. He is friendly and timely with his work. When I leave my keys with him for service, I know they’re in good hands!

Life doesn’t get much better when you have a good mechanic.  Mark and his mechanics are very knowledgeable and honest.  I had Stabilitrack sensor problems that nobody else could figure out.  Mark did, The sensors needed a good cleaning and were good to go. I found them 4 years ago to work on my 2010 Silverado, and they will be maintainIing my new GMC Acadia.

What a great local repair shop. Clean neat and solid history. Started by Marks dad and he continues the family tradition of good honest work at a fair price. Recently had my 2006 Ford Expedition upgraded with new shock/struts and what a difference. 180K miles ready for another 100k. Done on time with no surprises.
