We have utilized the services of LDG for over 10 years. We have always found the staff to be knowledgable, competent and willing to assist with any problem. We use LDG for all vehicle related services (except warranty issues)and have never experienced a problem. We have recommended LDG to family/friends without reservation. Although ownership has recently been turned over to the font line manager, we have not observed any changes in the level of service provided. As stated on other postings, LDG is not the cheapest in town, but they will provide the best level of service in the area.

I was referred to LDG Automotive several years ago by a friend and have had virtually all auto repair work done by them since then. They are honest, competent, and professional. I'm not known for the newness of my cars, and yet they have kept all my clunkers going, some well over 200,000 miles!

I trust these guys which means a lot to me. They aren't the cheapest in town but they do good work and take care of your car. Fortunately I've only needed them for scheduled maintenance but it is not uncommon for them to do extras like fix loose door seals for free. It's a bummer that they no longer have Saturday hours. But I am happy that the same bunch of mechanics have worked there for the 6 years I brought them my car. Good work Larry G!

I heard about Larry's work through fellow church-goers. They were right; he is excellent. We've been with him for at least 10 years and have been very satisfied. I like the fact that he doesn't do work that he doesn't think needs to be done and has a lot of respect for women customers. We're looking around for a new mechanic because we've moved several times and now live over an hour from Larry. We will miss him!!!!

In this area, your choices are (1) dealer service, (2) marginal shops that can't keep up with newer cars, (3) driving many extra miles, or (4) LDG. We have been going to LDG for about 8 years, and have had 4-5 vehicles in their care. They are always courteous, prompt, and competent. If something is not right, they replace/redo without arguement or added charge. They remain up to date on computer diagnostics and the like, and seem quite competent. And they are willing to admit when they can't fix something, as well as do the diagnosis and let you do the work if you feel competent. All this comes at a price -- they are not the cheapest in the area -- but, in the long run all this pays off in longer lived and safer cars (and we put 40-50K a year on the road in these vehicles).

We have used LDG for several years. Although there are cheaper garages in the area, their competence is questionable and we usually end up back at LDG. Repair work is competent and repair prices seem fair, however diagnostic fees can be outrageous.

LDG is an outstanding, honest, auto repair facility.I have been going there for 8 years and have never been misled. I would refer anyone wanting their car fixed right the first time to LDG. These guys are awesome! P.s. they don't over upsale you!

My parking break light would stay on when my parking break was not engaged. I took it in. The gentleman behind the counter was extremly nice! He took the time to go out to my car with me and check it out. He put some break fluid in, had me pump the breaks while he actually got down and surveyed under the car. He didn't charge me for the fluid or service. I'm a customer for life and will recommend LDG to all friends and family. Thank You so much!!!

I started going here because I was new to the area and had a coupon. :) I keep going because they are friendly, honest and competent. They always try to accommodate me. I don't have anyone to give me a ride back home so I have to wait on my car, and they always take that into account and try to get my car done quickly. Once I had some kind of cover dragging the ground, and they just clipped it back on and sent me on my way; they didn't charge me or make me feel like a dumb girl...not that I had any extra clips around, but you know how some mechanics can be. Anyway, I highly recommend them and really appreciate their friendliness.

Love these guys, been going there for years. I used to think they were expensive, as others have stated. I did a little shopping around and found that compared to other shops they are priced about equal. Even better when you consider the honesty and excellent workmanship factors. Well done guys, keep up the good work! Remember, you get what you pay for!
