Verified CustomerJanuary 22, 2015

They check the car carefully every time I bring it in. When there is a problem, they keep trying until it is solved.

Verified CustomerJanuary 21, 2015

The workmanship, obviously by qualified mechanics: "out-of-the-way" courtesy of everyone, especially the front office including Bruce, Chad and Craig; always correct on their estimates and the pricing cannot be beat - the whole experience I have had for over 12 years cannot even come close to what the Honda Dealers with whom I have worked before, had to offer. The staff at WLIH is always ready to suggest that something else might be considered and they follow through with detailed analyses.

Verified CustomerJanuary 21, 2015

They are strong in most areas but need better communication updates on repair status if something changes.

I was one of Westlake's first customers in 1988, when it was a 1 man operation. The problem he solved for me at no cost showed me Mr. Nation is a top flight mechanic. I have referred numerous friends to Westlake, with no complaints from any of them. This is one of the finest businesses I have ever used. He has serviced 6 Hondas for me over the years.

From the time you walk into their office to the time you leave you are always treated like a valued customer that they want to take care of and care about. Their customer service is unsurpassed and everyone that works there is courteous and wants you to have your car cared for so you want to come back again and again. I laways do!!

Westlake Independent has been working on three of our cars for years and has always provided excellent service and kept our old cars running well. This time they helped to an extreme. My son was on a long road trip and the car started acting up. The talked to him and me a couple times until he made it back home. Craig was able to diagnose the problem to be sure that the car was safe to drive. Once home, they fixed the problem. Craig calmed me down so I was able to relax the last 2 hours of my son's drive!

Westlake Independent is always excellent in maintaining my car. They are always professional and friendly. Because of them, I trust that my 11 year old Pilot will not fail me.

Where can I start! I love this shop, and I never thought I'd say this about an auto repair place. About five years ago a neighbor referred me to them. I waited and waited and finally gave them a try two years ago. Since then, I have been totally satisfied with this shop. Why? I've obviously been elsewhere, from dealerships to other independents. Nowhere else have I found such all-around professionalism. They make me and my wife feel welcome and cared for. Their prices have been very reasonable for the work done. They shuttle us to home or nearby to work if needed, too. I've had regular maintenance done there, as well as more involved repairs on rare occasions that our Hondas and Acrua have needed more, always with complete satisfaction. It's the people PLUS the competency that keeps me and my family going back there. I'm finished trying other shops and happily recommend Westlake Independent Honda and Acura Service to all. In fact, we've even bought three cars from them. I have also recommended them to others, which is always risky. Now, at least three of our friends take their Hondas and Acuras there for service without a single grips. More important, they have praised the shop, too, so I know this is a terrific find. I also found that their technicians have been around for quite a long time at the same shop, and this tells me more about them doing a great job, keeping employees happy for more than 10 years in many cases. Give them a try and they will become your trusted repair shop for Hondas and Acuras, too. I am glad I found a shop I can completely trust with our auto repairs. I wish I had listened sooner to the great advice given me that suggested them in the first place.
