Honest Wrenches Automotive Repair
June 27, 2014

Very nice guys to talk with. However their listening leaves a lot to be desired. Dropped of my car and gave them a history of what had been done on the problem I was leaving it for. They came back with a laundry list of things that needed to be done to the car and a $1,200 price tag to go with it. Very disappointed in their method and attempt at a pay day.

Hello Rodney, let me start off by saying thank you for giving us the opportunity to serve you, but when you asked me to diagnose why fuel was spilling out when you put gas in your car that's what I did. then you asked me to do an oil change ( which comes with an inspection ) on your car as well. it is my job to tell you everything about your car so you are safe and your vehicle lasts a long time. if I did not tell you that your car needed those items and they went bad then it would then be a failure on me. but at no cause am I trying to attempt at a " pay day " but I am trying to make sure that you, your family, and others on the road are safe while you are out traveling. I understand that you do most of the work yourself and that is ok. it is still my job to tell you what your car needs for may sake and your safety. next time you are in a bind, feel free to reach out to us to diagnose your vehicle any time. thank you! - Travis

Awful. Went to honest wrenches to have my steering rack replaced, and they did such a terrible job I had to take it to another mechanic. Don't go here unless you have a death wish.

I'm very sorry that you feel that way. We perform high quality repair work, and stand behind our work. If you would have called us and notified us or your issue it would have been dealt accordingly. We do carry a 2 year 24,000 mile warranty on parts and labor. I'm sorry that you had a bad experience. I would like to make it right, if you could please send me an email so I know who I am speaking with I would appreciate it. Thank you. Honestwrenches@gmail.com

Coming through the city of Johnston, on our way back home, we were referred to Honest Wrenches and thought we would give them a try.
The man was very knowledgeable and just like the name of the company, was honest with us about repairs needed for our vehicle. Another repair shop advised us that we needed hundreds of dollars of repairs to be done, but Honest Wrenches told us that it was not necessary. He saved us hundreds of dollars and repaired ONLY what was necessary to get us on our way and back home! Great job, guys!

I found a card at the local parts store and was referd to them by the cashier. this company is very good at what they and i would reccomend anybody to them. there name says it all they were so honest to me and showed me everything that was not only wrong with my car but also good things about my car. it makes me not cringe everytime i need a car repair because they make sure that you understand everything that is going on with my car. im so glad i finally found a mechanic to do my car repairs right, and right the first time. price was very resonable also! for being such a new business they are doing everything great!
