Honest, Dependable, and Quick
I have been using Honest 1 since they opened. If you are looking for a reliable, dependable, honest mechanics, then Honest 1 is the place to go. You don’t have to worry about any sleazy mechanic `tricks` being pulled on you at this shop. They will diagnose the problem, fix the problem, and if its not fixed, they will take it back and work with it until its fixed. They stand behind their work 100%. I’ve dropped my cars off there thinking that I’d have to spend a fortune to get major parts and systems replaced. Instead of recommending costly and unnecessary work like some shops do because they know you don’t know better, Honest1 finds the real source of the problem and fixed only what needed to be fixed. I’ve recommended his shop to many a friend. Apparently word is getting around, and his lot is full most of the time. Still, the turnaround at this shop is very quick. Mark has a great team of mechanics.

Mark, the owner of Honest-1 Auto Care, always makes me feel as if my car issue is the most prominent issue he is working on. He and is employees are professional, always cheerful. The waiting room is welcoming, immaculate, as is the shop. My experiences here are always top-notch and pleasant. I highly recommend Honest-1 Auto Care.

July 15, 2011

The team at Honest-1 is fabulous and very considerate of my time. They took my car in right away, didn't try to up-sell me on a more expensive type of oil and had me out when promised. The customer service is truly amazing!!!

June 27, 2011

As always, the service was excellent! I have never had a bad experience there. Mark, Jennifer and the rest of the team are the best!

Completely satisfied. Friendly courteous staff. Spoke with the shop manager who was very friendly and left me with a greet impression. Work done at a reasonable price. Very professinal and honest, called me with an estimate prior to doing the needed work. Told me I needed rear brakes and rotors and that the front brakes were totally fine. When I came to pick up the car they told me that they were able to resurface the rotors instead of replacing them and the price was 150 dollars less than the estimate. I will definitely take my cars to them again.

Great shop. They are honest and straight and know what they're doing. They're also cheaper than a dealer. I will definitely use them again.

Tony and mark are true professionals! I brought my car in for what I was sure major problem, Tony quickly diagnosed the problem and repaired it. The problem was a broken vacuum line. They truly are the home of honest mechanics. They also have the nicest bathroom I have ever seen in a auto repair shop.

January 28, 2011

Mark and Tony assessed my problem honestly and then it turned out to cost less than they thought. Many places, like Goodyear (on Easton Ave.) would have tried to fix things that weren't necessary in order to increase the cost. Thank you so much! I will definitely bring my car back for any service I need. - David Hardin (Somerset, NJ)

Phenomenal Experience! I would highly recommend Honest -1 Auto Care to anyone with a vehicle. They took the time to show me what was wrong with my car and fix it the same day I was having troubles.

They also have the cleaniest bathroom I have ever seen in a repair shop!!!

October 15, 2010

Honest-1 went above and beyond to make sure I was satisfied with my experience. They were very reliable and their evaluation about my car was honest and thorough. I never felt the pressure I feel from other place. Thanks alot Honest-1!

Down to earth honesty. I have brought on numerous occasions several of my fleet trucks as well as my personal vehicles to Honest One for repairs in the past three years. I have always been wholly satisfied with their professionalism, turn around time and most of all their honesty. It is very comforting to know that you are in a place that truly cares about their clients. I would highly recommend them to anyone.

October 13, 2010

Honest-1 Auto Care truly lives up to their name! Very honest, high quality work and a crew focused on customer service.

Would highly recommend to anyone.

It is always white glove service at Honest-1. Their automotive knowledge is A+ and their attention to detail is fantastic. Every oil change is done quickly and professionally. There is always a sheet put down so that my floor mats don't get stained. Their waiting area provides various comforts of home such as comfortable leather chairs, a fresh cup of coffee, and internet availability. To top it off, the prices are always amazing and I feel like I am treated fairly. My Honda Civic will never be worked on by another shop... ever!

October 13, 2010

Excellent service. Very professional staff. They do not try to sell you unnecessary repairs. Whether it is a major repair or routine maintenance, I am totally confident that the work is done correctly. I would definitely recommend Honest-1 to others.

October 13, 2010

September 16, 2010

Just by the name drew me to this repair shop. They were honest. I had a oil leak from engine; they told me it was due to a bad senor switch. Now whenever my car has problem, I take it to them.

September 02, 2010

The name says it all HONEST. They tell you what is wrong with your vehicle, and they will always tell you the price of a certain repair before they charge up your bill.

My car needed to be towed, honest-1 got the tow truck for me and paid for it no questions asked.

The people who work there have great personalities, and they truly do want to help you.

September 12, 2009

The is the best car shop! I have been coming here for about two years. I come to them for everything, major repairs or something as minor as an oil change. They are very friendly, knowledgeable, understanding and very customer focused. They know their stuff and they do their job extremely well. I have only had great experiences with them. My parents also come here and have been for years now. They are the only mechanics our family trusts!!I Highly recommend them!

These guys are great. They took care of everything for me. Anyone would be hard pressed to find a shop that will do what they do. They handled everything from dealing with the warranty company to making sure I was being delt with properly.

I would refer them to anyone who has an automotive need. Honesty & integrity at its finest!
