"They went out of their way to make sure I was taken care of and they were very flexible about picking me up and dropping me off to deal with the car repairs. I think they are really great guys. I would definitely send people their way."

Disappointing

Terrible follow-up. I had to call for an estimate and correct it so it reflected the labor billed for the work being done. I hope it was a one-time thing and will not always be this way for service

The point person was able to help us decipher which repairs were mission critical and which we could put off. This meant a lot to us because we are recovering financially from cancer and every little bit helps.

The staff is so nice. The facility seems great. I'd call Houska an upscale auto shop, which I could see being a great fit for a certain type of customer. Houska will find every little thing that may need a fixing on a vehicle and recommend it get fixed. I took in my old jeep and as one would expect, there was a long list of repairs suggested. While I didn't feel forced to make repairs, I definitely felt unsure about what was really worth it. I'm used to my old mechanic in Boulder who was super fair with pricing and labor, and only suggested fixing what was truly necessary to keep it on the road. Houska has more than enough clients who can pay high prices for labor and I think that's just fine. I was referred to Houska by a friend whose parents use them and love them. It's a little too expensive for me and my old jeep though. All that said, I really do think they were super friendly and probably would be a great fit for a different kind of client.

Yes. I will return to Houska for my vehicle. A glitch was found when they were rotating my tires, and they did not proceed until they had spoken to me and gotten my permission to go ahead. Turned out to be nothing, but I was thankful to be prepared.

After the 88,000 mile service (yes it was late) there is a gas smell coming in from the cabin air system which can not be corrected. I even took it back and it still can not be corrected.
