Always friendly, fare and honest.

After calling around and not being able to find a tire place that would swap tires from my current pickup's wheels to new ones while I wait, I called Honest 1 to see if they could do it, and how much it would cost (I had previously had them change the oil in both my and my wife's cars, and was pleased by their service). Not only could they do it the next day (today), but at 10% less than tire places wanted. I brought my truck in for the appointment, and they did exactly what I asked, and also honored the quoted price even though a communication issue meant the appointment work order left out some of the work I indicated over the phone needed to be performed (which would have resulted in a cost about what the other places were quoting). Now that is excellent customer service!

I was told that they drove my car around the block and it pulled hard to the right. They did not drive my car around the block, they drove it from the parking space to the lift inside the garage, I was watching from start to finish and there is nothing wrong with the front of my car.

Told me it would be $160 approx to replace/repair my alternator then contacted me to tell me it would be $506. Then proceeded to tell me I had an oil leak and I was down 2qrts and my engine might lock up if I didn't fix. They wanted another $100 to repair that plus $10 per qrt of oil. So another $120. My friend called to find out why I was being charged so much more for the alternator then I was qted. He said we would take the car elsewhere and the manager said it would be $85 for the diagnostic. My friend said he wanted the diagnostic to take with us if we were paying for it but the manager said he'd waive the fee and to come get the car and he would not provide the diagnostic print out. It sounded very scammy. They were recommended so I was very disappointed I was being taken advantage of. Later the "oil leak" was checked and there wasn't one and the oil was not low.

The car got a complete brake job, rotors and pads when in reality, all that was required were five new studs on the left hub. In fact, the noise coming from the left front wheel was caused by the wheel which was lose. Case in fact, one stud was broken off and the four other studs left were all in need of being changed. To make a story short, when you bring your car to a garage never mention what you think the problem is, because that exactly what you re going to get plus... The price was exagerated and they could not even confirm when asked if the parts installed where made in the USA. I probably got the cheapest China made parts. I will never recommend this garage.

Repaired the AC in my 2006 Expedition. Took a couple of times to find all the issues but I had it worked on unsuccessfully at other locations. Patric was very thorough and always friendly Other places stemmed disturbed I would say they had not repaired it properly. Today it is ice cold and working wonderfully.

Questions Answered by Honest-1 Auto Care - South Daytona
this problem makes my driving very unsafe ...
You could have some lose parts in the steering and or a bad power steering pump. At high speeds the pump is working faster and if the pump is weak it would cause some of the same problems. I would want to look at your front end as well.
how much to replace right cv joint and rep...
You should not send pictures or personal information. To replace the cv joint it would cost $314 and the High Pressure Steering Hose $293.
I would want to hook up my scanner and get the engine codes. This would provide a starting point. It could be a bad cam position sensor or idle control motor. We work on these types of issues all the time.
Yes, its going to be the blower motor relay of the motor. It would need to be tested with a prob-tool and a good relay. The parts are avalable at an parts supplier and we can test if for you in a couple of minutes.
cap and rotor change solved problem for 60...
There is a gear in the distributer which can cause this problem. Also I would want to check fuel pressure underload, fuel injectors, timing and other tune up parts.

Sounds high....does you vehicle have an overdrive button? Drive train issues are one of our specialties so we would provide a free estimate.
What is the main cause for a trans to get ...
Most automatic transmissions will go into limp mode when their is an internal problem. The OBD2 scanner would not help as you need to test and comand specific fuction within the tranny to determine the issues.

Its a 3.0 hour job for a trained mechanic so I would say its some what diffcult. We specialize in this work so we can provide a complete estimate for free....just give us a call.
