Has had my vehicle for nearly two months and has yet to even have it in the garage. Mechanic has told me that my vehicle would be done by a certain time multiple times and after weeks I'm still waiting on it. Very poor communication. Probably won't consider going back.

Super crew to have work on your vehicle. Very professional and their experience is over the top. I RECOMMEND DODGE CITY TO ANYONE WHO IS SERIOUS ABOUT THEIR VEHICLE BEING IN THE RIGHT HANDS TO BE REPAIRED.

This automotive service is a fraud, theu claimed to do work on my car and did nothing according to my personal mechanic becuz I used their service while I was in VA, the brand new parts I purchased from their provider was never put on and the mechanic there broke the rubber pieces to the original struts I still currently have on my car. Shutting Lawson's automotive down is a must!!!!!!

I read the previous review and all I can say is that my experience was different. I was traveling through the area when my vehicle broke down. I waited till the morning till they were open, and Jennifer (front desk) and Allen (tech) were very friendly. I walked Allen through the issue I was having, he did a quick inspection and said he would put it up on the lift for further examination. Once he had it up, we both looked at the problem and agreed on the repair that was to be performed. As a professional mechanic, it was very pleasant to deal with someone as professional as Allen. 2 hours later, my vehicle was fixed and I was very happy with the repairs. I am still traveling, and I have had no other issues with my vehicle. The shop is a bit hidden, but its worth the search. I would definitely recommend them and next time you need service ask for Jennifer and Allen.

Sorry I can't give them a zero. Traveling home on Christmas vacation when car had a problem and went to this shop. After the "Fix" car had same problem. Drove car back. I was told sorry we don't fix transmissions. Well that is what you repaired and charged me for. Ended up with car at another shop. They put in the wrong part and didn't hook the wiring up because they couldn't because it was the wrong part and the plugs would not match.
Tips & Advices
Among the common scams pulled are needless repairs, where a garage charges you for work that isn't necessary. Another popular one is attracting customers through a cheap oil change or tire pressure check. Then, when you your car is being repaired, they give you a long list of other corrections they'd like to make, therefore boosting the total cost of your bill. The best way to combat these types of problems is getting a written estimate before work is done so you can see how much repairs are expected to cost. If the final bill is higher than the estimate projected, ask to specifically see the work. Make sure information is put in writing as well. If a problem remains, you can have proof that work was not done to your satisfaction.
For winter driving, features such as the defroster, heater and exhaust system are paramount. Look in your owner's manual for specific directions on how features should be checked and repaired. Many newer cars have a cabin air filter that can be replaced when needed, allowing warm air to continue to flow in. Also, check tires before winter driving, as they need to be at the proper pressure to perform well on snow and ice.
In the spring and summer, you want to be sure your air conditioner and cooling systems work correctly. Given the high temperatures, overheating is a common problem. Look over the system by ensuring there is enough coolant available. If it needs to be refilled, it is best to open the hood and add more to the car before it gets too warm out. Also, clean out fan ducts and other ventilation sources necessary for summertime driving.
Some fixes to your car can be done without paying a specialist. Issues like replacing oil and air filters are relatively simple, with instructions provided in the owner's manual on how to make these changes. The same goes for replacing broken windshield wipers or burnt-out headlights. Such issues should be repaired quickly to guarantee safety, but don't require a visit to a garage.
Yes. Not every type of auto repair work needs to be done by a certified mechanic. You can fix some of a vehicle's issues just by paying attention to how the automobile is running and having a basic understanding of auto repair. Look over the ways weather may impact your car and what preventative measures you can take to avoid having to take it into the shop.
