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.

Excellent Customer Service, Honest and Reliable. Have had very good experiences there.
I used to work at this shop, Al and Mike are great people who will treat you like family and they have an Excellent Technician Frank. They do quality work and are extremely friendly and will help anyone. Best shop in town guaranteed. Mike and Frank know cars inside and out.
Took my 1965 Fairlane there and was met with a smile by a guy that was polite, friendly, and knowledgeable. They took care of me and my old Ford. Great place. Great service. I will go back. Thanks guys. We got 3 rd place in our class !
Alan always makes sure to keep in touch about the status of the vehicle. His customer service is top notch and there's nothing better than supporting a small business!
Great service, good price, excellent customer service!
Going down the road and ran over a large utility knife and my tire was going flat fast. I pulled into Lakeside Auto Repair and Al came out to assist immediately. Not only did Al and his staff make sure I was taken care of they treated me with such promptness because I had my elderly mother who I was taking to her doctor appointment. They will have all of my business. I am overwhelmed with their generosity and help.
This was a very pleasant experience. I didn’t buy anything and they treated me like their family. I just needed air in a tire on my trailer. I was really in a jam. The man pulled out the hose and filled up the tire in 15 seconds. I tried to pay him and he wouldn’t take it. Now that’s old fashioned neighborly service.
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!
