You need to think twice before using this place. They are really manipulative and will take your credit card and add charges you never authorized. In addition, you will NEVER get a refund, even if you have an issue with a part. Stay away

Thank You Lake Auto for saving me! My 2006 audi needed a sensor that cost $450 @ the dealer and was backordered.
The guys at lake got my car going again for $45. I couldnt believe it.

I appreciate everything they did for me and will always call for parts.
thanks again JudyT

They told me they had the transfer case for my truck over the phone,made me pay for it befor they pulled it(somewhat reasonable),i come up the next day to pick up the part and the transfer case they pulled wasnt even remotly close to mine.completly different body style so everything was different.The guy told me they just pulled it off the shelf because it was the only one with the electric motor on it.didnt even pull it from the truck.went home without the part obviously, called the next day to see if they had any luck finding the correct part and the guy told me i was stupid and didnt know what i was talking about.I told him i wanted my money back.the guy threatend to black ball me so i could never buy a used part anywhere ever again if he found out i was going somewhere else for the part.gave me a hard time giving me my money back because the dont do returns when i never even left with the part in the first place.charged me a 50$ restocking fee....THIS WAS THE MANAGER I WAS TALKING TO!!

I WILL NEVER GO THERE AGAIN
EXTREAMLY RUDE AND UN PROFESIONAL

i felt like i was in the movie deliverence...whee!

**They arent rude if you give them over $400 for parts**
IF YOU DONT LISTEN TO ANYONE ELSE, LISTEN TO ME! I tried my best to save some money but got burned. I own a 2003 Ford Taurus SES with an engine that is hard to work on. While, I first bought a condenser for $80 (New one was $125 but I tried to save $). Paid for labor to have it put in. When went to recharge for $130 the condenser, which I was told was in GOOD CONDITION was junk, and all the freeon leaked out a day later. Their leak dye showed how severe it was. So now I was out $130. Well, they replaced the condensor, and so far that seems to be okay, but I obvioulsy had to pay labor costs again. And if I wasn't an idiot enough, my compressor went, so I called them up, explained to them that it is a 5 hr job (Because of my engine), and that I needed a good one. The guy "Joe", I believe, said "Come on in, I've got a good one for ya". While went to have it recharged today after paying labor, and guess what, ITS SEIZED! I explained to him I didn't mind paying more for a better one, because I needed it to last for a while, but after this experience, I find it ridiculous. Now I will not get another one from there (Which is their policy--Replace Only) because I can't trust them/ Please learn from my mistake, because I got burned $50 for a used compressor, and was lied to. Now I have to fight for my $$ back.

**Between the a/c system and other misc. parts, I have paid over $400 in the last month to them alone.**

I have always had a good experience with Lake....been there a dozen times....I cant believe these reviews!! These guys have always bent over backward to help me out.....Remember people.....these are used parts. Everyone should read the signs on the wall when you go there..they explain everything.....my favorite is "We are not responsible for your mistakes"....says it all !!!!

They charge you for parts (non-refundable) before you get there. They are rude, Call Auto Zone cheaper and really polite.

They tell you they have parts over the phone, you get there and they tell another thing they are so rude it isn't even funny. This is my third experience. Each time it was a bad experience and this will be the last time I deal with them.

I have never had a problem with Lake Auto.If you are buying anything in a junk yard....whadeeya think yer buyin'?!! For used parts,I've got nothing but quality stuff.
I drive nothin' but used,expendable vehicles and do about 1200 miles a week.I depend on these dudes!
These guys work hard and used parts are in high demand in this tuff economy.I grew up in a mechanics garage and was breast fed on oil & gasoline! These motor heads are the real McCoy.If you think you got ripped or want something better..
BUY NEW.(These guys went the extra mile for me...I owe them a debt of gratitude! Thanx Lake Auto!)

DON"T EVER GO THERE FOR ANYTHING!!!!! THEY ARE RUDE, LIE AND RIP YOU OFF!!!!!!! THEY STOLE MY MONEY AND DIDN"T HONOR THEIR OWN WARRENTY.... They sold me an engine with a supposed guarantee. The engine was no good. they said they were gonna get me another one. Call back in a day. so i did. then it was call back in a week. i did. then another week. i did. this continued for well over a month. where they just kept telling me the guy i had to talk to was either busy, out to lunch, sick, or with a customer everytime I called. So one day i called and they said he was on lunch i asked when he would be off of lunch. they said in an hour. so i called back an hour later. then he was supposedly busy. So i asked to talk to someone else and said it's been well over a month without a car. I would like to solve this problem... The mans response was you wanna be rude.... F&*% YOU... YOU"VE BEEN F$%^&D and he hung up the phone... LOL So SOME words from the wise... if you enjoy your hard earned money and getting your monies worth...... HINT HINT ..... DON"T EVER GO TO THIS CONARTIST!!!! THEY COST ME

This was the rudest junk yard I have ever called. I can't believe how terribly rude the employee's were. My friend and I were getting quotes for my Honda Accord's Passenger side window. He got a quote for $250.00 for the door. I called back not more than an hour later and the gentleman told me, "Yeah, that's what I quoted him. I'm quoting 275.00 for you." I was appalled. I later called SafeLite Autoglass and they came to my house and replaced the window for a mere 140.00. I will never do business with Lake Auto Parts and I will forever tell those I meat to never do business with them.

The problem with Lake Auto is they don't realize they sell junk. They charge 50% of what an OEM part costs. This isn;t a bad deal for parts that are only available OEM. However, any part you can buy at Advanced Auto or NAPA with be 50% off OEM anyway, and new to boot. Fenders, Seats, distributors, don't expect to find a deal here. They don;t know what parts they have and they won;t let you walk the yard anymore. The name has been around for awhile, but the ownership has changed repeately. The last four times I've been there, I swore I would never go again. The last four times I found what I needed cheaper somewhere else local.

Lake auto parts is actually a junk yard. They are reasonably priced, when you call for a price on a part they will give you 2 prices. One price is if you go and take part off car. The other price is if they need to go and get it off the car. They are conveniently located. They have been around for many of years.
