The work performed on my vehicle was outstanding. The shop is ultra clean. Customers are treated with respect, provided with Wi-Fi, coffee and other goodies. I'd highly recommend Honest 1 to family and friends.

I was visiting a friend in Deltona, Fl. when the starter on my 2001 Ford F150 stop working. Finally got starter to start engine and since Honest-1 Auto Care was only a few miles from the house I decided to drive the truck in to get the starter replaced. What I found was a new shop with what appeared to be qualified people working there. I dropped off the truck and told the service writer I needed the starter replaced. A lengthy conversation followed with him telling me what procedures they followed to make sure they corrected the right thing. Later that day the guy called me with an estimate of over $2,000 to correct everything they felt needed replacing on the truck. I told him the truck had a value of maybe $3,000 and I wasn't going to spend that kind of money on the truck. Told him to replace the starter. Picked truck up the next day with a bill of $685 (approx). For $685 (approx) I got a rebuilt starter installed and a list of everything they thought needed replacing on the truck. Keep in mind a rebuilt starter is approx. $250 at O'Reilly, Auto Zone or Advantage Auto with $127 labor the bill was a little high. I did authorize the inspection and was agreeable to being charged their inspection fee. I decided to come back to Georgia on Saturday 2/23/2019. While driving north on I-95 just south of St. Augustine the truck overheated and left me on the side of the road. Luckily the next exit wasn't far so I drove the truck with temperature gauge reading HOT. Pulled into a BP station/convenience store. After waiting a couple of hours I opened the hood and found all of the antifreeze had blown out of the reservoir bottle due to the cap not being replaced. Cap was securely positioned in an opening off to the side of the bottle. The path of antifreeze was straight forward meaning the cap was taken off during the inspection and not put back on. After a two hour wait time, I went inside the convenience store and purchased two gallons of drinking water and poured into the reservoir bottle and replaced the cap. I drove the truck home the remaining 150 miles with no further incidence.

Everything was high quality. the work performed and the customer service were amazing.

When I entered the facility the person behind the counter gave me somewhat of a greeting--it was more like a grunt. He was not very friendly in the whole process. Very matter-of-fact, it made me wonder if this was the right place to come for service on my car.

I went in for an oil change and left with a check engine light on. When I brought it back the counter guy was very combative. When they took the car back the tech admitted that he had done something wrong. They gave me free basic car wash when I missed a morning of work to bring the car. No apologies

Questions Answered by Honest-1 Auto Care - Deltona
Y Does The The Corolla 2003 Always Shorts Oil After 2weeks Does It Mean That My Engine Is Week on 2003 Toyota Corolla
A normally running engine/car should not be using any noticeable quantity of oil in 2 weeks. So you have some condition that is either consuming oil or a leak (external or internal) to the engine. Look for external leaks. Spots on your driveway? Look for signs of recent oil leakage on your engine. That may be difficult if there is a lot of dirt/old oil on your engine. Check your coolant for oil. Someone already asked about smoke. Look for blue smoke, which is oil consumption. Your car may be putting out white or black/grey smoke but that is due to other issues.

In most cases the source of the oil disappearance will not go away but will get only worse. We would be happy to do a free visual inspection and let you know what we find.

Good luck with it, Honest-1 Ormond Beach.

What Alex said is exactly correct an inspection is needed on the vehicle to see what is making the noises you are hearing Honest 1 in Ormond Beach 386 262 1089 and Deltona 386 516 0800 will do a free inspection on your vehicle. Please give us a call and Schedule.
What Will A Wheal Bearing Cost To Repair on 2001 Lexus IS300
To provide an accurate cost without us inspecting the car results in the estimate being too high or too low. How much rust is there, other damage caused by the failure, etc are factors we need to look at.

You have a very good service estimator on We are certified by them and as such we must do the work within the cost range they provide. We also will do a free inspection so we can give you an exact price. NO obligation at all to do work with us. Either approach will give you a cost to do the wheel bearing.

Dash Lights Do Not Work And Service Engine Light Comes On on 2003 BMW 325i
Not sure of your question but it reads like you are looking to buy the car. We can do a used car inspection for you which will give you a good health report on the car. We do quite a few of them so people know up front the condition of their future vehicle. We wish you well on your future purchase.
The A/C Is Blowing Hot Air And Reset Button Won't Work. Replaced Power Control on 2005 BMW X5
Not sure if you are wanting to do this yourself or not. We do offer a free AC check so you can come by our shop and we will be happy to help you. If wanting to do it yourself, not sure what tools you have. First is a visual inspection to see if you have a loose belt on your compressor, anything blocking the compressor from working and to check the refrigerant levels in your system. If your pressure is normal but the air is hot, you MAY have a compressor problem. Checking to see if the compressor clutch is engaging is a simple visual inspection. The compressor is usually located towards the front of your engine, just inside the grill of your car. Your car should be running with the AC on to check the compressor clutch. The compressor looks like a small motor with a large wheel on the end. The wheel (which is the compressor clutch should be spinning.) If it is not spinning, you have a problem with your compressor. Could be electrical or mechanical. Go this far and let us know your results.
Battery Light On on 2007 Ford Focus
A few things may be in play and a bit more info is needed.
Was the only concern the battery light being on?
Was the car not starting easily?
Any issue with any of the electrical devices such as radio display or dash lights flashing?
Factory battery defects make up less than 7% of the true battery issues and you having a new battery would have you look in other places first. Driving habits can be a cause. If someone drives only short distances with a high electrical draw, the battery may not have time to recharge. That is more common than thought. Another item if the alternator is truly good is a short in your electrical system. How did autozone confirm that the alternator was good? So you best bet is to start tracing back from your alternator to see why it is not charging your battery.
What Could Cause Car To Have A Hard & Loud Vibrating Sound When Driving on 2005 Volvo S40
Agree with the previous person . If the vibrating started after a tire rotation, you would look at the tires first. Check the condition of the tires. If they look good, check to see if they are balanced. Checking the balance requires you to bring it to a shop. Make sure they do a test drive along with a good overall inspection. It MAY be the tires or another issue could have come up coincidentally at the same time. The general inspection should catch that.

5.9 Liter Gas Hose Is Leaking Between Fuel Rail Can I Fix That Without Replacing Rail? on 2003 Dodge Ram Van 3500
If it the connecting hose between the two rails it appears that you cannot do what you would like to do on that Van this is from the Dodge Service Manual

" CAUTION:The left and right fuel rails are replaced as an assembly. Do not attempt to separate the rail halves at the connecting hose ( Fuel Rail Assembly—Typical ). Due to the design of this connecting hose, it does not use any clamps. Never attempt to install a clamping device of any kind to the hose. When removing the fuel rail assembly for any reason, be careful not to bend or kink the connecting hose."
