We are a full-service auto repair &
maintenance facility proudly serving Irmo, SC.
As a dedicated service and repair shop in Irmo, South Carolina, the Lakeside Auto Repair sees cars at their most vulnerable — whether it be a major engine overhaul or a simple oil change service. You learn a few things after 30+ years in business: vehicles aren’t invincible, and a little maintenance goes a long way in helping prevent major service or auto repair work.
Now, there’s something else we understand: it’s easy to forget about routine car maintenance. Nowadays, most cars are built better than in years past and can provide you with years’ worth of worry-free service. However, your vehicle relies on you, too, since you’re the one ensuring it gets the essentials on a timely basis. Parts wear out with time and use. Some of those failures lead to mere annoyance in the short term, as poor tire condition or a neglected oil change end up costing you more trips to the pump. Let them go longer, however, and those small issues become bigger. Poor alignment makes your car “pull” to one side or another. Bad tread depth leads to poor traction and longer stopping distances. Neglected brakes won’t have the “bite” for sudden, quick stops. The consequences are relatively benign, but neglect can often end in severe damage and need for auto repair.
Regardless of the issue that brought you to Lakeside Auto Repair, rest assured we are well-equipped to handle any and all repairs—there’s nearly nothing we can’t do. We perform electrical repairs (batteries, starters, alternators), electronic repairs (diagnostics, check engine lights, engine controls), powertrain repair (transmissions, engines, cylinders), and so much more! Our technicians are ASE certified and thoroughly trained in the latest processes for automotive repair and service. To ensure peace of mind after your visit, we offer a 24-month/24,000-mile warranty with each service and auto repair. We specialize in all domestic cars and trucks, in addition to all Japanese-originated vehicles, including Toyota, Honda, Subaru, Lexus, Infiniti, and Nissan models.
Here at our car repair shop in Irmo, our customers always come first. We work around you and your schedule, and we strive to provide convenience in any way possible. For those that may have a busier schedule, we offer after-hours drop-off and pick-up services, in addition to free shuttle service if your vehicle needs to stay longer than anticipated for auto repair or service. Aligning with modern-day advances, we are even equipped to perform digital inspections and send estimates by text or email. In that same vein, we’re happy to provide timely status updates via email or text to ensure you stay apprised as your vehicle is being serviced or repaired. Our customer waiting area is complete with comfortable seating, a TV, and free WiFi.

Very excited about the work they did on my truck! Good, honest auto shop!
I'd give Lakeside Auto Repair more than 5 stars if I could. They are friendly, honest and know what they're talking about. They very graciously helped me out a couple of pickles with not so great service work performed at our local Chevy dealership.
The mechanics at Lakeside were so helpful! We broke down on a road trip while driving through Irmo and they were able to see us immediately. They quickly took care of our overheating issue (Columbia is HOT wow) and were friendly and knowledgeable. We were grateful for their help getting back on the road!
They are absolutely amazing! I have never had a bad experience with Lakeside. I trust them enough to send my mother there. They take care of your vehicle, and everything they work on.
These guys have done an awesome job with all of the repair work they have done for me. Top notch customer service and extremely friendly! One of the things that I look for is someone that knows there craft, and these guys knock it out of the park! Call Mike if you have any car issues!
Professional experience fair 👌 no BS
Came here after seeing a few classics outside mixed with some foreign cars. Met with the owner and dropped off my car. Everything was taken care of with extreme detail. The prices were reasonable and the service was timely. I'd definitely recommend them.
Good work,fair prices and good people try them out.
I have to say I was very impressed on how well they did on my car. I read their reviews and thought I would give them a try and I am glad I did. They fixed my ac and my cv axle after I had already been to two other shops with the same issue. They were very friendly, let me know what my car needed and gave me a quote up front and explained to me what needed to be done and how everything worked so I could know the cost before repairs were done. I am glad I went! Will be going here from now on!<... Read More
I stopped in here to look into getting a new tire for my boyfriend when the one on his SUV blew. I was overly impressed with the fast service and friendly professionalism. I live in NE Columbia and will definitely be back for any future needs.
