Customer Reviews

Verified CustomerOctober 30, 2015

They did the work that I requested for my vehicle, they didn't try to sell me a bunch of other parts or services that I didn't need or ask for, and the price I paid for the work done was reasonable.

Verified CustomerOctober 30, 2015

Time for repair is reasonable. Loaner vehicles available. Quick availability for service. Knowledgeable in the field is good. Cost is slightly high though.

Verified CustomerOctober 29, 2015

Getting your car fixed can sometimes be a bunch of BS. Whenever I have to deal with HSC it is not. They are fair and friendly and more than competent.

Verified CustomerOctober 28, 2015

They did a good diagnostic. However, the part that was wrong was the part they had repaired a year ago.

Verified CustomerOctober 23, 2015

Work accomplished was satisfactory!

Verified CustomerSeptember 03, 2015

Everything went well. No surprises. Saved me Money also over what the dealer would have cost.

Verified CustomerSeptember 03, 2015

I have had all my services performed at Hometown for the last several years and was satisfied. However, earlier this year when I needed new tires, Hometown's quoted price exceeded the cost of tires at several other places. Then recently, I found that I needed extensive and expensive brake work done, all after I had the brakes replaced last year at Hometown. Hometown performed the work at no cost, but still charged me for the parts. I was extremely dissatisfied since they had replaced the brakes just last year.

Verified CustomerSeptember 02, 2015

They are very efficient, professional and personable. The work always seems to be top quality.

Verified CustomerSeptember 01, 2015

Expert advice, diagnostics and services. When service have been provided we have never had to come back for any issues.

The owner actually came to my house to make sure I could safely drive my car to his shop. He stayed late to do the repairs.

We were in Columbus to attend a funeral and had very limited time. HSC took great care of us, diagnosed and finished the repair quickly and charged a fair price.

Prices are competitive, good service and they are very friendly. They will take you home if you have to leave your car and they usually send a hand written thank you card after repairs are complete.
