Awful. They had my car for 6 hours and still didn't have my car done when I went to pick it up. They also did $1200 worth of damage that I had to pay for to get it fixed elsewhere. They are a disaster.

by - Verified Customer June 01, 2017

Excellent, as always.

by - Verified Customer May 31, 2017

Guy at the counter was unpleasant. Treated me like an idiot. When i asked about pricing he got very pushy and forceful. I merely asked. He practically jumped down my throat. I'll never come to this shop again.

by - Verified Customer May 26, 2017

Shop manager and mechanic was courteous and explained everything to us. Would definetly go back again if needed!

I did a pre buy inspection for a car. My intermediate steering shaft was not detected as needing work, even though I mentioned steering problems. I had to get later costly repairs. I would not recommend the car inspections here to friends.

I had discovered a screw jutting from the face of a tire and stopped by to see if they could check if it penetrated the air chamber. They took it in right away and made a repair while I waited.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. I got in fast and out as promised. I have no way to judge the quality of the work (brake job) until we see how long it lasts nor do I know if the price was good because I didn't compare prices this time. All in all it seems just fine. It was a lot of money! Hope it was worth it. The brakes don't squek anymore!

They told me I had a leak in my line (according to their notes) told me while they look into the transmission flush they could see if the leak has changed. Didnt hear a word about the leak when I picked up the car. Then it occurred to me this happen last time I was there. They were looking into the cost for my special order parts, never got that call with prices either. Only go because it's conveniently close walk to home.

My van was not fixed, they said they couldn't find the problem!!?? But I looked my self and found that there was tranny fluid in my power steering so I emptied out the reservoir and refilled it 5 times and now it's not making noise and doing good!! They still charged me for the service but didn't do anything!! They didn't even open the power steering reservoir to look at it!! I just bought the van! They are supposed to be mechanics!! Just a little women and I had to find the problem!! I'm a cook, when you come to my restaurant should I make you cook your own food?!! I'm not happy at all!!!

Honest-1?? Maybe not so honest

I went to Honest-1 because of a vibrating noise my car was making. They told me that it was a bad power steering pump and gave me an estimate of $700 to repair it. I thought that was kind of high so I checked around. Another shop gave me an estimate of $385, which is $315 less!!. When I told Honest1 to cancel the appointment I had made with them because I found a much better price, they said that they would match that price.

I do appreciate them matching the price, but why did they give me such a high estimate in the first place? Was it based on actual parts and labor costs or on how much can we get out of him. I let them do the job, but needless to say I will never go back there because I will never be able to trust that their estimate would be an honest one .

I had an oil change but also asked for a brake inspection due to a noise. I was told the brakes just needed cleaning . I took my car else where for brake work . They showed me where the cylinder was leaking fluid and needed to be replaced. Honest Care Car missed that.

by September 23, 2016

They were friendly and helped me get to my appointment while they evaluated if the car could be fixed. The repairs were going to exceed the value of the car so the service ended after the diagnosis.

Made an appointment for an oil change, they got the appointment time mixed up and the guy was super rude to me when I got a little upset with the way things were going. He told me I can just go somewhere else if I was going to be irritated....so I did. I left and have never been back and I used to like this place too. I took all 3 of my cars there regularly and now I don't spend a dollar there anymore.

The service was great. Wesley Grice-Patil was the technician that did the oil change I needed done. He gave me a summary of things he recommended I get repaired down the road, he was very thorough about what he did, and what he inspected for me, as well. I highly recommend that he gets a raise, not only for the awesome work he did for me, but I also noticed the kind of leader he seems to be in the shop, and the good advice he gave to other technicians, as well. I will come back for future work done on my vehicle, as long as he is around to do the job.

Everyone I have ever interacted with at Honest A-1 was professional, kind, and honest. I have appreciated the fact that unlike every other service shop I have dealt with, I never felt taken advantage of so that the servicemen could meet a quote of the number of parts they could sell to customers. The servicemen at Honest A-1 have been conscientious about my financial situation as if I was a family member or friend (which I'm not). If they could find a way to repair something temporarily they would do so and then warned me that the particular part was aging and would need to be repaired at some point in the future.
