These are the best. made time to fix an emergency oil leak and got me back on the road home—-pleasant —courteous–competent Just the best!!!!
Truly the best service. I brought my car in and had trouble describing the issue I was having. They worked hard to identify the issue and make the repairs necessary. They were fair and honest. We do not have a lot of wiggle room in our budget, but I felt that the quality of their work ensured the safety of my family when driving. What really put their service over the top was the time they took driving with me so I could show them my problem, and then they went above and beyond, bringing the car back for me so I would not have to trek out with my three little ones!
Very pleased with my one experience at Lloyds. Thought I was gonna have major issues with my truck but the crew fit me fixed up for about ⅓ the cost I expected. I would have no problem recommending Lloyds to anyone.
Consistently great service. Went above and beyond and filled my washer fluid without even saying a word about it. I always feel like my car is in good hands.
I’ve been coming to Lloyd’s for several years and have always had great service at reasonable rates. I appreciate how everyone knows my name, I feel like part of the family. Keep up the good work, and thanks for keeping me on the road!
I randomly selected this location from the AAA tow truck. Their communication with was a little slow on the front end but I was 100% pleased with the level of service and found the costs very fair. Kind people and a job well done!
Excellent service. Large, clean and professional. Good prices.
They fixed my tire and walked it out to my car for me. Even offered to put it back on for me. $30 well spent.
I don’t trust many auto shops, but this is easily the best I have ever encountered. Honest and Fairly priced! Great Shop!
I called on a Monday to see if they could get my daughters Jetta in for a noise in the front end, I dropped it off Monday night and got a call from Nick Stoffel on Tuesday giving me best case and worse case price (not knowing the condition of a part till it was apart) to get the front end back in shape for her to drive. The car was done by late Wednesday afternoon, it may have been done sooner, but I had the wheel lock key at my house and had to drop it of for them. In all I would say it was very pleasant experience from start to finish and all the guys up front nice to work with.
Good service and good staff.
By far, one of the most honest, customer friendly, thorough car repair shops. I have taken my vehicles to this place for years!!!
Always a pleasure working with these guys. The job is always done right and communication between the shop and customer is excellent. The one shop I use for anything that comes up.
Wonderful staff with friendly, quick service. They work with you to figure out exactly what it is you need.
Very pleased with my one experience at Lloyd’s. Thought I was gonna have major issues with my vehicle but the crew got me fixed up for about ⅓ the cost I expected. I would have no problem recommending Lloyd’s to anyone.
I think Lloyd’s is a reputable and trustworthy business that works hard to make sure their clients are driving safe, well-maintained automobiles. I only trust Lloyd’s to work on my car.
Very professional staff.
Great shop, even better staff. Thanks Nick!
They say that when you find a good car mechanic, stick with them. When my longtime mechanic retired I tried Lloyd’s on a whim (actually my car broke down a block away). As busy as they were, they kept me well informed. I’ve used them a few times since then and the experience has been downright pleasant. That’s saying a lot, considering how frustrating car issues can be. Yes, they are slightly more expensive. Yes, they pay their mechanics a fair wage, and they get the best mechanics in town. They’ve never tried to swindle my wife into buying a some fictional unnecessary part (yes, that’s happened elsewhere). Lloyd’s is our car shop now. No doubt.
If you want it done right this is the place. No shortcuts. You will always be able to find someone cheaper but you won’t find someone better.
After just moving to Saint Paul, my husband and I experienced some not so neighborly “alterations” to his 4-Runner. After one of the heavy snows it was running really loud and rough. We took it to Lloyd’s after reading dozens of positive reviews and getting multiple recommendations from neighbors.
When Nick from Lloyd’s called to tell us the problem was that someone had crawled under the car and stolen his catalytic converter, muffler and part of his tailpipe, we were shocked and disappointed. We were also concerned that we would wind up paying for these costly repairs again since we park on the street.
Nick was completely sympathetic and had a great solution. To ward off future thieves, Lloyd’s guys built a reinforced cage around the newly installed parts that would take a long time to hack through. The situation sucks, but we are grateful to Nick and Lloyd’s for their excellent service and kindness. We are so glad we chose Lloyd’s!
EXTREMELY satisfied! The price and the customer service far exceeded my high expectations! Thank you for exceeding the typical customer service. Role model repair shop! It is very evident that Lloyd’s Automotive cares and values their business.
The writers and technicians at Lloyd’s are some of the most professional and trustworthy I’ve done business with. They give honest and accurate advice based on your needs rather than their potential income on any given job, and try their best not to overpromise on anything. I’ve worked in the retail and corporate automotive industry since 2010, and Lloyd’s compares favorably to any shop in the Cities.
Hands down the best last week I called in and got help the same day at a great price. Everyone I interacted with was very polite and helpful. I will for sure keep on doing business here for all my vehicles..
Same-day service, everything was well communicated and upfront. This is a garage that you can trust. This means a lot to me, as we are a one-car family that relies on our vehicle every day.
Great customer service and a speedy repair!
Honest. Fair. Timely. We love Lloyd’s. I have had two vehicles serviced here. I can’t say enough about their great customer service and expertise with repair. So glad to have found this place. The majority of their mechanics have been with them for 10+ years, which speaks volumes and says so much about the integrity of this company. Thanks, Lloyd’s!
Excellent. Will come back! This is an honest garage that cares about both the customers they have, and the new ones they are gaining. Very friendly and transparent. If you live near Grand Ave, for sure check them out as a neighborhood place to bring your car to.
“Find a good mechanic you can trust” This is Lloyds. Plus my daughters are obsessed with cars and the staff are great about encouraging the fascination.
Quick, responsive, and very helpful team!
I’m impressed with their friendly customer service, honest recommendations and work ethic. All my experiences have been positive with a variety of vehicles and repairs. I recommend Lloyd’s.
Having a mechanic I can trust is worth it’s weight in gold: I’m on a budget and previously brought my car in to get looked at, but didn’t get any work done, as while they recommended fixes, they didn’t push anything and let me know what was and wasn’t a safety concern. Recently, my car had some bigger safety issues that were more expensive, and I didn’t blink an eye; I knew what they would recommend was necessary and trusted them not to charge me a ton for unnecessary upgrades. They explain everything in detail and walk me through why specific fixes are important, which for someone who is less familiar with cars is awesome. Completely recommend Lloyd’s.
I’ve used Lloyd’s twice in the last few months and have been very happy with the service both times. The first time was for more extensive work and the second was a run of the mill headlight replacement. Both times the quality of the work was great and they were very fast. The timeline the cost were well communicated both times. I would highly recommend going to Lloyd’s for any of your car needs!
First class customer service. I’ve been going to Lloyds for over five years for everything from regular oil changes to major exhaust repairs. Incredibly knowledgeable mechanics and they treat each customer with dignity and respect.
One example highlights their excellent customer service: I shredded the rear tire and within 3 hours of dropping the car off (no prior notice) they had a new tire mounted and ready for pickup. Lloyds always takes care of their customers!
Lloyd’s is a excellent shop for pretty much anything except body work (don’t get towed here if you’ve been in an accident). Their shop is really clean and professional and their prices are much better than a dealer. I’d recommend this place to anybody that needs their car worked on.
Car parts break down. Repairs are expensive. It’s to be expected if you drive a car. After trying multiple other shops in the area over the years, I’m glad I landed at Lloyd’s. They have given me the least painful experience when it comes to auto repair services. They never try to sell me anything I don’t need, but they do thorough inspections and let me know about possible maintenance that will be needed in the near future.
The first time I came to Lloyd’s, there were three problems with my car. They did not force me to complete all three repairs at once! They offered me options in three steps, with three different prices. The first option was the cheapest and included only the repairs that would fix the major safety issues. The other quotes were more expensive, and included repairs that were needed but not necessarily safety issues or things that I could not drive around on for a little while.
I really appreciated their attention to the safety of my vehicle, and the option to wait on less urgent repairs. I eventually returned to complete the other non-urgent repairs.
The employees are incredibly friendly and are able to explain very technical issues in a way that I can understand. I never feel like they are talking down to me, which is an experience I’ve had at other repair shops.
Go to Lloyd’s!
I have gone to Lloyd’s for over 10 years. They do excellent work, charge a fair price, are highly personable and professional, and they provide excellent customer service. They explain all issues and repairs clearly and are willing to answer any follow-up questions. I have an older vehicle and they always help me to prioritize the work that is needed so I’m not faced with several large repairs at once. They also notify me of upcoming maintenance services and/or things to keep an eye on so I can plan ahead. I frequently recommend them to friends and family…sometimes even strangers! I really can’t thank them enough for their high-quality, trustworthy service!
Lloyd’s has consistently provided excellent service for years! This is the type of place that does not try to cheat you or dupe you if you’re a woman. You can trust them! Very accommodating and professional.
Reliable and friendly staff.
Lloyds rocks!! I think even the Governor gets his car fixed there….nice…quick…transparent…da bomb!!
Excellent repair shop. People know what they’re doing. Higher-end cost.
Lloyd’s is the best auto repair service! After my step-daughter’s Kia stopped running – another shop quoted $4,000 for a new engine. We had her go to Lloyd’s and they figured out it was a warranty issue and Kia is giving her a new engine and a loaner. The people at Lloyd’s are always the best. Please go there you won’t be disappointed.
Very helpful and friendly. They always keep my car running it’s best.
I’ve been going to Lloyd’s since I moved to the Twin Cities from WI. I haven’t had the best luck with car health so I’ve had to use Lloyd’s services fairly regularly. I also have really bad anxiety which means any time I have a car issue I’m practically breathing into a paper bag. The staff at Lloyd’s is always efficient and kind. They always talk through everything with me regarding costs before doing the work. I also work 7 days a week, and somehow they always find a way to fit my servicing in a way that works with my schedule.
Great service over the years. Very professional, knowledgeable, and reliable. Everyone there is a joy to work with.
Locally owned quality shop operating on this corner since basically the beginning of cars. Attached is pic of proprietors Howard Lloyd and Don LaValle hard at work in 1956.
The service at Lloyd’s is unmatched, as the employees are friendly and the prices are extremely reasonable. As a customer from out of state, I would most definitely take my car here again and recommend the service to family and friends.
Nearly 20 years of dependable service on our cars.
Quick service and reasonable prices. The staff is very knowledgeable and is more than willing to help educate customers. I go there for all of my car troubles.
I’ve seen fancy sports cars and luxury rides roll in and out all day but they still treated me with my rusty trucks like I was just as important. Great service and quality work.
Great service and honest answers.
Super friendly and helpful, but on the more expensive side.
I’ve been a customer for many, many years and won’t take my vehicle to any other facility. The staff at Lloyd’s are knowledgeable, professional, helpful and do great work.
Friendly service, honest, and reputable. I highly recommend.
I prefer to take my vehicle here instead of the dealership. Lloyd’s has been able to also repair recall and warranty work. They worked directly with the warranty company, and with Dodge when needed. If you are a female and absolutely dread taking your vehicle in for repairs because you just know that any conversation will be “dumbed down” for you…..because what could you possible know about cars, being a female and all?….well, look no further. Everyone I’ve ever spoken with at Lloyd’s is respectful. The language doesn’t change based gender. They came highly recommended to me by another female colleague. If you are a male, well you’ll get treated with the same respect and excellent service.
I never thought I’d say this about taking my car in for service, but it has been a pleasure doing just that, once I started going to Lloyds. Their service is always done professionally, the staff are friendly and the place is clean. They’ve always called when they said they would.
That’s the five stars!
Always great, honest service for all car issues, big and small.
My car started acting up on me so I had it towed to Lloyd’s based on all the great reviews I had read on yelp. They did not disappoint Nick was great helping me figure out what was wrong with my vehicle. I shopped around for other quotes and they all quoted me twice what Lloyd’s did! I will recommend them to anyone else I know having car troubles. Thank you so much Nick and Lloyd’s Automotive!
I am a former New Car Dealer. I have a very good understanding of, and appreciate Good Service, and that is what I got as a 1st time client of Lloyd’s. I had a fuel pump go out in my Chevrolet Suburban, I was not completely sure that that was the problem as I was able to limp the vehicle into the lot over the weekend. After a call Monday morning they did a through diagnosis and determined that the fuel pump was indeed the issue. They gave me a price, I did some checking and found it to be very fair, called them back ok’d the repair and was given a finish time. When I arrived to pick up the truck, the final bill was a little lower. I did a little checking later and found that the way they determined that the problem was actually the electrical system in the fuel pump showed true professionalism, I was told most tech’s would not have picked up the actual issue. I have and will recommend Lloyd’s to my friends in the Twin Cities.
Lloyd’s is hands down very professional with great customer service and knowledge. They always go the extra mile and treat you so courteously. We’ve been taking our cars there for years to be serviced and will continue to do so.
This place is top notch. If you want to take your vehicle to a shop that is knowledgeable, and where you can trust the people 100% not so sell you a repair you don’t need, Lloyd’s is the place.
The guys at Lloyd’s really do a great job. I felt the need to write a review because I have had such positive experiences with them. I recently brought a Jetta in to them to have some work done to the clutch pedal. When we got the car back we were still experiencing issues, but when I talked with Nick he was extremely helpful and willing to work with us to figure out what the issue was. It showed to me just how important customer service is to them which I think is extremely important when you’re talking about fixing cars and paying a lot of money for someone to perform good work. Really happy with my experience working with them. Thank you Nick!
Reliable, flexible and timely.
I was in a huge hurry to catch a flight and my parking brake got stuck around the corner from Lloyd’s. I think it was Dan who helped me, and I couldn’t be more grateful for him walking over and fixing it so that I could make it to the airport on time. Excellent service and chivalry are not dead! Thank you a million times!!!!
Fantastic customer service and speedy, but quality work! I got in right away and had my oil checked and windshield wiper fixed and I was back on the road within 15 min. So happy I found a good auto spot near my house!
Lloyd’s Automotive has been great to work with. They were extremely helpful and have gone above and beyond what they needed to, to get my car repaired. I have found my Auto shop for life and would highly recommend them!
I have always had exceptional service, prices are competitive, and the folks are friendly and knowledgeable. I have made referrals to them and I will continue to do so. I have finally found a mechanic shop that I trust and like.
Very professional shop. Always clean and they know what they’re doing. I’d recommend to anybody.
Every employee was professional and polite. The repair was completed on-time and exceeded my expectations. I would highly recommend Lloyd’s Automotive!
Lloyd’s is a great place to go for any auto need. I was stranded and couldn’t get to work, they fixed me up and had my wheels back before the end of the day. They also offer every woman if they needed a ride (it was very cold), which speaks mountains about character.
We’ve brought our vehicles to Lloyd’s off and on for over a decade. Yesterday with the bitter cold of -27 the pressure in our tires had dropped. We stopped by and they offered to put air in at no cost. The customer service here is always above and beyond. They are honest, reputable and would highly recommend them.
Friendly service and they get to know you.
I am very impressed with the customer service that Lloyd’s offers. I brought in my car for a couple known issues, and some servicing that I thought was needed. Turns out the car didn’t need some of the work I thought it needed, and the rates were reasonable for the work that was done. A dishonest shop could have easily raked me over the coals and done the servicing that the car didn’t need just yet. Bottom line: this shop has integrity, and I would certainly recommend Lloyd’s for anyone in need of car repair.
Several years ago before I lived in St. Paul I was visiting town with my mom’s car when a pothole ate the subframe. Lloyd’s was very accommodating and let the car spend most of the week in their lot since I had to head back out of town to go to work.
Since then I moved to St. Paul and have taken my cars to Lloyd’s exclusively because of the excellent service, quality of work, and trustworthiness. If they recommend something you can trust that it really is a good idea.
Lloyd’s is the kind of place that values customer relationships. If you take your car here you won’t want to go anywhere else!
My Suburban developed a power issue… Dashboard warning lights lit up like a Christmas tree…
I looked on Yelp to find a good mechanic…
I came across Lloyd’s… I read the reviews and decided to give them a call…
Man, am I glad I did…
The issue was a corroded wire… A lot of shops would have done a lot of unnecessary work on the truck and charged me some outrageous amount and they may or may not have fixed the original issue…
I completely recommend Lloyd’s… Good, fast service at a fair price… Who could ask for more?
It is the absolutely cleanest shop I’ve ever stepped in to… The staff is knowledgeable and friendly… Go to Lloyd’s… I’m going to tell everyone about Lloyd’s… Best repair shop in town… IMO
Excellent service and amazing staff!
