The staff make me feel comfortable and are speedy with oil changes (only service needed so far) other than a filter on same visit

by - Verified Customer January 08, 2018

Went in needing just a alignment found my tire rod end was put on wrong. They had me a new tire rod end and switched it around for me. Then did my alignment as promised everyone had good things to say to help me prevent this from happening again very pleased with my visit will definitely be back.

by - Verified Customer December 29, 2017

Very reasonable for tire rotation and oil change

by - Verified Customer December 28, 2017

After shopping there I truthfully feel taken advantage of and lied to. They quoted me a price about half of what it was then when I wasn t happy with the price they told me if I take it else where they ll charge me for the exam. It was like I didn t want to pay 700 but I was stuck with no car and catching rides to get to and from work then I have to pay them and my car still won t even be fixed. So I got the work done at the double prince but it s like if they gave me a quote even near that the first time I would have never showed up. They pull you in then leave you carless and double the price. i wouldn t recommend or go back.

by - Verified Customer December 27, 2017

Never will I recommend or step foot in this awful place again. Beyond rude employees. Told me I needed things fixed that I just had done 2 weeks ago. On top of trying to fix things that I did not approve of. Disgusted by the service.

by - Verified Customer December 26, 2017

They were very nice and very professional. Did great work and I will go back there if I need any further work.

by - Verified Customer December 22, 2017

Nice folks at the shop. I had to talk them down to a more reasonable price based on the repair actually needed.

by - Verified Customer December 15, 2017

Everything was done quickly and the staff was very friendly.

by - Verified Customer December 14, 2017

Elizabeth and Jeff were very respectful to me.
Explained the work that had to be done. Because they were busy, Jeff gave me a ride home and called a couple hours later to say our car ready and he was his way to pick me up.

by - Verified Customer December 14, 2017

Very nice and helpful. Great people to talk to and the service was excellent. I will be taking my Jeep back for its next service.

Tried to take advantage with very high price repairs. My regular mechanic charged much much less and didn't try to sell me any extra repairs at a high price. would not return to this shop ever again.

by - Verified Customer December 04, 2017

Spent a small fortune here and have always done right by me

Personal is friendly. To my surprise first time job was not done correctly. I had to come back but the problem was fixed immediately, I did not have wait for a long time..

by - Verified Customer November 14, 2017

A total inspection was done on my vehicle- all repairs needed were discussed. I added a concern and also asked for tires. They called around and found tires $100.00 cheaper than I had found. They were all very courteous and professional and very helpful. I will go back to them for all repairs and maintenance in the future.

Oil+ filters( incl air)

by - Verified Customer November 10, 2017

I brought in my 2007 Ford taurus,that i recently purchased from an elderly couple. With only 100,000 miles on it ,i only brought it to the shop to examine and tune the car up.They changed the brake pads,spark plugs and the wiring on it.
I also specifically told them to examine the vehicle to make sure its ready for driving.
2 days later the check engine light came on.
and i was away for a business trip for a week. I started to use the car and about a few days later the car started to squeek.
All of the sudden my engine started to smoke.The belt came right off and the compressor didn't work anymore.
I didnt wanted to bring back the vehicle for inspection because i knew that they would hustle me.
This car had ZERO issues.( one owner and the couple had been servicing the car since they bought it brand new.) All of the sudden i bring it to the shop and 2 weeks later the car engine smokes?
Well i at least learned from my mistakes after spending 1200 $.

by - Verified Customer November 09, 2017

Elizabeth was awesome

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.

by - Verified Customer October 29, 2017

Everything went well except oil must have been spilled in engine area and I have leaks on driveway

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.

by - Verified Customer October 13, 2017

Very kind staff and they were very efficient in their work

Honest people. Good work. Definitely would recommend to others.

by - Verified Customer August 31, 2017

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.

by - Verified Customer August 24, 2017

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.

by - Verified Customer August 16, 2017

I have had several car shops attempt to fix my car to no avail. Honest1 was able to diagnosis and repair my car before my night shift!

by - Verified Customer August 15, 2017

Great customer service, great work. Simple and great

by - Verified Customer August 07, 2017

all was good

by - Verified Customer August 02, 2017

Price for parts way too high

by - Verified Customer July 31, 2017

I am from the country where you look someone in the eyes when you talk to them and your word or handshake is good as gold. I found the same atmosphere at this shop. Keep up the good work.

by - Verified Customer July 25, 2017

They are always friendly, courteous, and talk to me like an equal. They explain things in a way that I can understand. I recommended them to my sister who then took her car and received the same service!

by - Verified Customer July 19, 2017

I went to this shop based on online ratings. I had a noise when I braked and they determined I needed new brakes, rotors, etc. I still have the the noise.

by - Verified Customer July 13, 2017

Everyone was very friendly! Thank you Honest 1.

by - Verified Customer July 11, 2017

Took truck in for a knock in the engine. Was told it's normal for type of vehicle. Paid $80 diagnostic. Got truck back with big scratch in door. Asked for estimate for valve job. No call back. Took to dealer. Ended up being seized roller lifter. Shop lost out on $5000 of my money. Dealer got it instead.

by - Verified Customer July 07, 2017

Had oil changed. I'm a repeat customer.

by - Verified Customer June 21, 2017

Had the tires rotated and oil change for my wife's Honda. It was time to change the air filter and cabin filter so they did that also.

by - Verified Customer May 04, 2017

Always friendly, fare and honest.

by - Verified Customer May 02, 2017

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!

by - Verified Customer April 26, 2017

Excellent customer service and reasonable pricing.

by - Verified Customer April 25, 2017

Wow, service was great. Greeted in the parking lot by name and door was opened and offered bottle water. Convenient location.

Had no ac, got there at 2pm my problem was fixed and out by 3pm very friendly.

by - Verified Customer April 18, 2017

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.

by - Verified Customer April 18, 2017

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.

by - Verified Customer April 14, 2017

Good.

by - Verified Customer April 13, 2017

Pleased with the explanation.

by - Verified Customer April 12, 2017

They were OK.

by - Verified Customer April 11, 2017

Great customer service.

by - Verified Customer April 10, 2017

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.

by - Verified Customer April 06, 2017

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.
