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.

Lakeside Auto Repair is conveniently located at 1401 Dutch Fork Road, and we can’t wait to serve you soon!
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.
Courteous, friendly, knowledgeable staff. Great clean shop. One of the nicest waiting room/lobby I have ever seen.
I have been taking my vehicles to these guys back when they were located in Lexington, and even though it now takes about 30 minutes to get there, I followed them over to the other side of the lake. From my first experience when I needed a new gas tank due to a metal rod in the road puncturing the tank, I have been sold on Al and his crew. Very professional and trustworthy. You get an honest assessment and guidance when it comes to needed repairs and service. I won't be taking my vehicles any... Read More
Really great guys that got me in at the last minute and took care of me. Highly recommended.
Some History; Al and Mike ran a successful busy in Lexington for years but wanted to relocate their shop in the Ballentine area due to the increase flow of traffic, I wish I had met them sooner…. I could have safe thousands of dollars on my vehicle. Mike proved me with a breakdown of things (blown head gasket, radiator replacement, power steering box and etc.) that would need to be fixed/repaired/replaced and an estimate of the cost. No one in Columbia or surrounding area that I have dealt... Read More
My vehicle was botched by another repair shop and i lost over a thousand dollars. I brought my vehicle to this place for a second opinion they took their time and examined my vehicle. They fixed my vehicle and double checked it before giving it back to me. I would recommend them. They have reasonable prices and will get the job done right the first time.
They nice. Mike helpful.
Excellent service. Friendly, professional staff. It’s hard to find a shop that I trust and that doesn’t try to always find something else wrong to make an extra buck. Repeat customer for many, many years. Highly recommended.
