Good experience, knowledgeable professional staff.

by - Verified Customer October 31, 2017

The best thing you have going for your facitly so far is not recommending a bunch of items that really do not need done. Keep this going and you will probably have the work you could ever want. We are fed up with places that try to sell a bunch of needless stuff to be done with the car. Bravo.

for an auto shop, way better than I expected.

by - Verified Customer October 15, 2017

Truck would not idle properly and would not accelerate beyond 3000 rpm. After an expensive code test, $100, the mechanic found 'multiple vacuum hose leaks.' He fixed them. The sales counter rep, Mike, adjusted the cost down to $85 plus taxes. I was satisfied with that and thanked him. I gave Honest-1 a very good review.

The quote over the phone and what I ended up paying way a couple hundred difference. Wish I had gotten the correct quote and maybe a better deal. 800 bucks for breaks and rotors. I could have saved some money had they not have the wrong price the first time.

This was my first experience. However, it will defiantly be my last. He place was nice and clean and the people are respectful. However, my oil changed was over priced and did not seem to work! My car ran better before I had the oil change. I didn't mind paying the price for the service because I was expecting amazing results that I, unfortunately, did not receive.

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.
