    Sorry, just looked back at your post saying that there weren't any others you would recommend. Guess that par for the multi-tasking course... Saw LD Automotive recommended in past posts; what are your thoughts on them for this kind of work? Thanks!!

    Need Lexus Mechanic For Timing Belt/Water Pump Work

    Thanks, would also not return to Park Place; not sure how that place stays in business between the horrible service and rude "sales" people. I did call Davenport, but they won't even give me numbers over the phone - they insist on us bringing it in, and paying for a diagnosis of things I already...
