A mechanic who can be trusted to fix it right and price it the same way is hard to find.

Cole’s Texaco in Houston has built a reputation of trust with its customers over the past two decades and is not about to let that good name down.
“I have people who have been doing business with me since I opened my doors 21 years ago,” said Raymond Cole. “Those people, especially the elderly, trust us.”
Cole and his wife Sherry have built their business on offering quality work at a reasonable price.
Cole’s is one of the few places in town that still offers full service. The sell regular, plus and premium gasoline as well as diesel and off-road diesel.
The Cole’s are assisted by Johnny Kilgore who handles many of the daily details at the downtown Houston landmark.
The service station also fixes flats, changes oil and filters and is glad to check your car’s fluids. They also do shocks, brakes, wheel-bearings and some electrical work.
“We are glad to take a look at it and tell you if we can fix it,” said Cole. “If I can’t do it, I am glad to recommend someone who can.”
As vehicles and big energy companies have changed in a rapidly changing world, Cole’s Texaco held tight to those values and ideas that have built it’s business and keep customers coming back.
“We have always treated customers like we want to be treated,” said Cole. “That won’t ever change.”
