My friends call me Dave,,,and i am glad to say the family owned business at Laboto also call me Dave. They always make me feel at home when helping me with all my car and truck needs. The best thing about Laboto Auto is how smart the owners knowledge of my vehicles problems...(no body could find out what was wrong with my dump truck and little chevy car..Sergio fix both in one days time..BAAAAM !!!!). They have always been right on with fixing my situation, and getting me on the road safe. I am a true believer that you get what you pay for,,,,and i never mind paying what ot takes to keep my vehicles safe, i always find Laboto very fair with thier pricing. So...to sum up this review..5 stars from Big Dave !!!!!!!

They are horrible. Worse than 1 star. They serviced my car without testing it for giving it back to me and there was something wrong with the steering because when I got into traffic I couldn't turn and almost got into an accident. I asked it the test drove it to make sure everything was ok (like all mechanics do) and the owner looked at me like the idiot he is. I made the mistake of going back for something else and they gave me a list of parts that needed to be replace. Half of the parts didn't go to my car and the other half was fine as stated by the other mechanics I got a second opinions from. The one thing that needed to be replaced wasn't even on the list. I'm glad I took my car to someone else, I would have wasted about $1000 for work I didn't need.
Not to mention the waiting area is freezing. As many people as they screw over they should be able to afford to turn on the heat.

Can't say I'm thrilled with them, BUT, after years of trying every place I could find, from MAJOR chains with guarantees to mom and pops, I always come back here. They're dirty, not very fast, not especially kind (price wise) BUT, they are able to diagnose a problem, fix it and don't lie or price gauge.
They even drive me home when I drop off my car. My main problems with them would be: they don't really "take care" of my vehicles, leaving grease on the inside as well as have chipped the paint on my one car opening a stuck hood. :/ That and, I have brought them so much busniess between myself and referrals that I think it would be nice to get a special discount on large price repairs. No matter how many times I say I'm poor, it just doesn't matter. I hope they realize that this loses them business because then I call up a friend who does mechanic work and have him do the work much cheaper. I prefer to send it to a professional shop though, because they have the tools and equipement needed to make the job so much easier.
All in all, the best I've found but I'd love to find better. :)
