Diamond Kar Kare

The original owner, Daniel Lomas, founded the firm in 1991 and hired his son Adrian Lomas in 1997 to help with the famliy business. They have worked together since. In August 2006 Daniel retired from the famliy business to pursue a teaching career at Austin Community college. Daniel also has another son, Josh Lomas who is also an ASE Certified Automotive Technician living and working in Austin Texas. There are also three daughters, Danielle, Natalie and Debbie, who have all contributed to the famliy business and are very handy with the wrench. Our family has been a part of Diamond Kar Kare from the very beginning. On November 2006 Adrian, after finishing his studies in Automotive Technology and becoming a Master certified Technician , took over the family busness and Daniel assumed the row of business consultant. Adrian has three children Denisse, Jesenya, and Danny who you will see occasionally hanging out at the shop or you might see little Danny in the shop helping his father with the repairs.

Con artists. I went here for a inspection and sat and waited for about 30 minutes and then the inspector came in and said that the head light lens were too dirty; but immediately offered to clean them for $75......I could already smell bovine fecal matter. I said I wasn't going to have anything done until I had a chance look at my options. He said that's fine, but I would have to pay for the inspection then and I would have 15 days to have my lenses fixed and bring it back or my money was down the river. A few phone calls and a short drive later I got the DPS Field Audit Supervisor to personally inspect the lens, which he said were fine and that he would contact the shop to let them know to go ahead and pass me. If that wasn't enough the inspector insisted that they were not up to code and the Field Audit Supervisor had to come out to the shop himself! The inspector then backed my car up from one of the car bays and said that the light couldn't be seen projected on the wall from 150 ft (this is in broad daylight mind you). So the Field Supervisor then backed his brand new truck up to the same distance and as expected his lights didn't show either. So...now this is the kicker folks...the inspector tried to tell the the DPS Field Audit Supervisor that his truck was not up to code!!!! I had to keep myself from laughing. It is quite probable that the Diamond Kar Kare will not be issuing any inspections here in the near future; and even if they were I would not ever give them my business again.
Diamond Kar Kare took really good care in repairing my car. I got my valve cover gaskets changed and the price was very affordable. I checked around the city included the dealership and Diamond Kar Kare was the most affordable. I got dropped off and picked up when my car was finished, which was very helpful. I will recommend Diamond Kar Kare to everyone I meet and people who ask about a good and affordable auto repair shop. I will always let Diamond Kar Kare take care of my auto repairs.
