    I received a quote for work to my Volkswagen from Dave. He was straightforward and honest about my options, including the fact that my vehicle needed more work done than it was worth (which was against his interest as a business-owner that fixes cars!). I would definitely return to Lakeside and highly recommend them!

    Dave and team are great- professional and honest. I am trying to save an old Audi and they have helped me address a few things. Great communication and they always take the time to explain repairs and issues with my car. I have three other VWs that we will be bringing there for service. Highly recommend. I am glad that we found someone we could trust and who loves German cars.
