I do a lot of my own auto work, but I go to Lou's for 2 things -- cheap used parts and an honest and quick inspection. For parts they have an on site and off site junk yard and pretty much have a knowledge of what they have on hand when you call. For inspection they are quick (relative to the number of people waiting) and honest. If you go in the morning around 9 you can usually get in and out in an hour for inspection. They don't try to find something wrong with your car to make you spend more money. The waiting area could use some help and gets hot in the summer but the collection of slogans and bumper stickers will keep you entertained. As long as your willing to deal with a sub par waiting area, this is the place to go for inspection. Closed on Sundays and Mondays.
Pros: honest, fast
Cons: waiting area
