I brought my 07 Ford Edge in and it was determined that one of the ignition coils was bad. They fixed the problem and I was back on the road. The problem came back right away so I called and they had me bring it back. After trying several times to duplicate the issue, they finally found another of the coils to be bad. They fixed that and didn't charge me extra because it didn't show up the first time. They did a great job of finding the issues and getting them fixed. It was really nice to have the loaner car too. Everybody was very nice and because of how the situation was handled, I will definitely bring my business back next time.

Thank you Honest-1!

Was told my oil change would be free when I made the appt (according to the punch card) and when I checked out, they told me it wouldn't be. On another note, the mechanic was very kind and helpful and I appreciated getting driven back to the shop.

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 February 26, 2017

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!!!

I was charged for a test I did not authorize. I think I was taken advantaged of because I was there for a coolant emergency.

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 .

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.

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.
