Our thoughts go out to the victims of the Oak Hill / Scenic Brook fire. The community is only a couple of miles from Lawson Automotive, and many of our customers live there. We’re thanking our lucky stars that the fire was contained as well as it was considering the strong winds. If you’re a Scenic Brook resident and need auto repairs over the next month and a half (through May 30), just mention that when you come in and we’ll give a 10% discount (up to $100) on any auto repairs or maintenance.
Just a comment about our technicians that i might not have brought up before.. With the hiring of Adam Miller, we have two ASE Certified Technicians at Lawson Automotive. We will soon be listed in the ASE website as an approved ASE service facility in Austin. Incidentally, the third technician, Felix Lombrana while not ASE Certified, is one of the most respected front end / suspension technicians in town. Felix has been with Lawson for over 15 years now and is one of the primary reasons why we are the preferred repair shop for several body shops in the area, including AMM (Austin Motor Mile), Oak Hill Paint and Body, and Epps Paint and Body, and in addition do all the front end work (or take care of front end headaches for most of the other repair shops in our area, including Koetting Automotive, Jerry Dixon Automotive, Coleman Automotive, Hohmann’s Automotive and others. (so if you take you car there, chances are, you’re indirectly a customer of ours anyway!). For auto repairs in Southwest Austin, Drippin Springs, and Circle C, we are the quality repair shop of choice.
I just wanted to let you all know that we have a new front desk manager at Lawson. Scott McHone has been our lead mechanic over the past year and has managed shops before, so i moved him to the front desk to fully utilize his top notch skills and knowledge. We’ve hired another technician, Adam Miller, to fill his previous role. As things continue to improve in this economy, i know that this move will help us serve you even better than before! If you’re looking for an honest auto repair shop in Southwest Austin (Oak Hill, Dripping Springs, Circle C), we are the shop for you!
Hi – I’m Steve, the owner of Lawson Automotive Group. The “Group” (at least for now) is comprised of Lawson Tire & Automotive, which is a traditional auto repair facility in Southwest Austin, and Fastbrake, which is a mobile brake repair company that i acquired about 2 years ago. I do have plans to expand in the future, although nothing is in the works for now. I’ve owned Lawson Tire & Automotive since 2005, when i purchased the business from the original owner, Bobby Lawson. This business has been providing honest, quality auto and truck repair services to Dripping Springs, Oak Hill, and Southwest Austin since 1991. Their community reputation was the most important reason for me buying the business, and i intend to keep things that way. ANYWAY – i’ll be periodically making blog entries for a variety of reasons – to answer questions that customers ask, to feature specials, give automotive advice and recommendations, and maybe even clarify some misconceptions and myths that people have been led to believe about their cars. Until then, happy motoring!
