Definitely one of the nicest mechanics I've met. Found this place by looking at reviews and they were all spot on. Nice, honest guys that tell you like it is, explain in detail what the problem is and can/should/shouldn't be don't about. Prices are very fair. Only problem would be they seem to always be busy and it can sometimes be hard to find a place to park your car since it's right in the middle of a busy area. Overall, highly recommended.

Just recently moved to lawrenceville and needed to get my car inspected. Told me what it needed. Got the work done by friends. Called him back to drop it off and get my stickers. Said he would stay till I got off work if I did the work he said needed done. Swung by and paper work was done in 10 minutes.

This is my 3rd visit to Lesters Auto. I just had my car inspected this go around. I found them to be honest and reliable. Calls before he does anything costly and will give you an estimate. Inspection went very well and I am extremely satisfied. Labor cost was more than reasonable. I am 77 years old and have been to many auto shops in my lifetime and I would recommend him to my family and friends. Carl Vitti

Lester has come to our rescue a few times! Someone has even come to our house when our battery died to give us a jump! I've had inspections done with Lester and no work was done with out a phone call first. Everything has been done in a timely manner at a very reasonable cost. I never worry about getting calls that 10 things need replaced when they really don't or leaving with more issues than I came with, which happened at the last mechanic we tried (more than once) and will never go anywhere else again!

I'm not originally from Pittsburgh and I was always hesitant in taking my SUV to garages I am unfamiliar with in the city. However, after a recent emergency, I was forced to get a repair (radiator and transmission fluid change). A friend suggested Lester and Frank. These guys are great. Very honest, reasonable pricing and they do great work. Frank took the time to explain the issue in detail to me over the phone (even before bringing it in and getting their money) and called for my permission before purchasing any parts. If you need a repair and are wary of getting ripped off, I strongly recommend these guys. I will definitely go back if I ever need something done again.

When I moved to Lawrenceville I asked around for recommendations and people that had lived in the neighborhood for years recommended Lester's. I've taken my car there for the past two years I haven't been disappointed yet. They seem to be honest, they explain why and show me what parts they replaced - and they don't treat me like I'm an idiot. They're usually at the shop until about 6:00, which is good for me as I generally have to pick up my car after work. I don't get the feeling, as I have with other places, that they're trying to replace things that don't need replaced or overcharging. They're friendly, knowledgeable, and I can't recommend them enough to anyone in the area.

Lester and his crew are the best. My parents and I have been taking our cars to his shop almost exclusively for over two decades. Honest to a fault, and always busy w/repeat customers. Mechanics you can trust. I know I'll get quality work at a fair price. Does a great job of communicating any issues & estimates. No scams. No BS. The genuine article.
