it was fine.

by - Verified Customer December 19, 2016

Great service, very nice waiting room and friendly staff. My oil change took about 10 min longer than expected (I was on break) but everything else was fantastic!

by - Verified Customer December 14, 2016

I like Honest-1 because they are trustworthy. However, there was ice from my car to the front door and I feared I'd fall, also it took a rather long time to get an oil change - nearly an hour - and I did have an appointment.

by - Verified Customer December 15, 2016

First time coming to this shop, was recommended by a friend. Karen was so sweet, explained everything to me. Ive been taken advantage of so many times in other shops so I started having my mechanic friends look into what the shops tell me. When I talked to my guy friends about my experience and they said Honest 1 sounds like a good quality shop and I should definitely continue going to them.

I'll never go anywhere else

I would definitely return. Unfortunately equipment was down and all work could not be completed in one visit, but more than willing to return to complete the necessary work.

Cande, Ross, & the whole team are great! Thank you!

This shop is fantastic. I have an old car that needs repairs a couple time a year. I trust Honest One to properly repair my car and not over charge for those repairs. Honest One takes the time to explain and answer ALL of my questions. I am happy to bring my vehicle to Honest One because I can trust them

by - Verified Customer November 16, 2016

Service was timely, staff was pleasant and helpful and all issues were addressed and explained

They went beyond helping me with my car issues. Excellent customer service.

by - Verified Customer November 21, 2016

This was the second time i have brought one of my vehicles here to have anything other than the oil changed. The first time i need my tires balanced. There was an issue with that. I ended up going to discount tire where they were able to complete this task. On this trip I asked for an alignment and oil change. I was told it would take about an hour. 1 hr and 45 mins later they walked up and said they could not perform the service due to a machine failure and would i like to go ahead and get the oil changed. This shop does not have my confidence in its ability to do much more than an oil change.

They are all so great but Karen is super amazing.

They do excellent work in a clean, well organized shop. Work was done on time and as estimated. I have a Lexus SUV and saved $100 off of the dealer quote for brake pad replacement.

by - Verified Customer April 15, 2016

The technicians were able to detect an electrical problem that was very tricky. I thank Honest -1 for taking the time & for being so honest with the whole situation. They kept me informed and showed me exactly where the problem was. I am ever so grateful to Honest-1.

Excellent service of my vehicle.

by - Verified Customer April 06, 2016

They explained problems very well, repair seems adequate, pointed out deficiencies in some previous work. However, they tried to get me to pay $670 for some windshield wiper work that apparently was not needed. I checked it out after they told me and found the problem much simpler than they told me. I fixed it myself with a $23 part online. This seems to be the case with every mechanic I have ever used, but I will keep on searching.

Every time I come it's perfect I can't believe how they show you what is wrong. And then explain to you how is will be fixed.

Everything smooth and unstressful. All work was thoroughly explained. Additional work on brakes was suggested, including taking me to look at exactly what was being recommended and why. Service was fast and efficient.

by - Verified Customer March 29, 2016

I went in for an oil change and they came back with a list of things that needed repair. One of those being the battery. I was told it was weak. When I questioned the owner on that saying the battery was less than 6 months old and was replaced when the alternator went out because it drained the old battery, she said let me go back to the mechanic and see what's going on. She came back saying the battery was retested and was fine. Shady....so why would I believe anything else they had to say was wrong with the vehicle? Would never go back there nor would I recommend it to anyone.

by - Verified Customer March 26, 2016

One of the best auto repair shops in the city. Everyone was very helpful, courteous. They carried out what they promised. Plus give me a discount for $10 and I found another on line for $30. They give me the $30 without any hesitation.

The problem was not resolved, I was told I need new back brakes even though I had them done just 9 months earlier.
