    They are literally around the corner from my house. I had a dead battery and needed my breaks looked at. It was a great experience from the first conversation. Got a callback within a couple of hours of dropping it off. The price sounded … More fair, and the work was done in a timely manner. Really great service, and thankfully for me…right in my neighborhood. Thanks Lane and the staff at Lowell's Auto Repair.

    Have been using Lowell's for years and couldn't recommend it more! They have fair pricing, great communication, fast turn around and go above and beyond with car repair. If you look at any of my reviews- I have car issues, for … More whatever reason, but Lowell's I have used for years and recommend to anyone in the neighborhood. Great, exceptional neighborhood mechanic.

    I’ve been taking my vehicles to Lowell’s for over 10 years and recommend them to all of my family and friends. I trust Lane and his team to keep my car running smoothly. The prices are always reasonable and I never feel like I am being … More “upsold” a service. They are not pushy, but honest about whatever work might need to be done and let you decide what is right for you. Since Lane has taken over the business, he has done a great job refreshing the place and continued the great service I experienced with Lowell.

Thank you for everything Lane!
  • Avatar Marjorie Simon ★★★★★ a year ago
    Lowell's Auto Repair was sold last year to it's top auto technician, Lane. I wondered how it might change. I'm thrilled to report that Lowell's continues to offer the same friendly service, honesty, reasonable repair … More times and quality parts replacement. It is still the same excellent place it's always been. I drive in from Uptown and know it is worth every extra minute to have my car serviced here. They do a fantastic job AND are genuinely concerned about every single customer they serve. Love Lowel's!

  • Avatar Lynn Tra ★★★★★ a year ago
    I was in town for some fun and school shopping with my kids this week. I ended up having car problems, not from the area so I used the closest shop around and was pleasantly surprised!! It was a friendly shop, very experienced employees, … More reasonable rates, and the owner went out of his way to ensure that I was back on the road in no time! This was huge as a single mother, my kids and I were able to enjoy the rest of our time without worry of car trouble or having to skip the things we had planned because of pricing!! Shout out to lowell's shop, wish I had a shop like this in my hometown!!

    This is a top quality auto shop. The owner is honest and knows what he's doing, as do the employee's. I brought a few vehicles here when I was starting to learn how to work on things and since then I've never found a shop … More that I'm happier with. As someone who's running a shop now this still comes to mind as a shop that is worth bringing your vehicle too. The work that's done here is good and you won't be ripped off.

    Best auto repair place in the area. I've used this place for many years after hearing about them from my sister and my mother who both used them for years also. They're the most honest repair place I've ever used. I've … More given them plenty of opportunity to take advantage of me and make me get repairs done but they're just honest and just tell me what actually needs fixing. They could have taken advantage of my sister or my mother considering they don't know much about cars but they always were just honest and didn't pile on the repairs. I love these guys.
