Free State Auto Works is the best auto shop in Lawrence. I highly recommend Don's work, he's fast, reliable, flexible, and reasonable. He doesn't try to up-sell nor does he sugarcoat, you get a fair diagnosis and a great checkup plan, plus he goes the extra mile for customers.
I commute to KC and my wife commutes Topeka each day, and he's a life saver as resource to make sure our cars stay in great shape for the drive. Highly recommended.
