Do the work, full inspection. They don't pressure you into getting more work done, but they do make suggestions as to what should be done. They also provide photos to show what they see/needs work.

Bob was great, wonderful customer service. fixed my car quickly and got me back on the road. Prices are a little high on parts but they use quality parts and have a great warranty on parts and labor.

We needed brakes in our 2018 Infiniti. Being a Honest-1 previous customer, I receive offers from them. Right when I needed brakes, I received one of their emails. I clicked on "Specials" and there happened to be one on brake pads and rotors. It was a bit lower than the other places I called. I figured that when I called Honest-1, the deal would not be available for my car. That wasn't the case! I set an appointment and the car was done earlier than promised - at the price agreed to! Great experience!

I've Driven by this place dozens of times and never stopped, until recently as i needed my air conditioning serviced as it had a slow leak and it stopped working, so i thought I'd try them bout.They filled my car a/c with refrigerant and u-v dye and my a/c worked fine. They kept my car overnight to try and locate the leak and couldn't find it, so They released my car back to me, so i could drive it for a week and return to have the leak rechecked. When i returned after a week, They found two leaks, one in the valve stem on the low pressure suction side and also a compressor seal leak. They fixed it for a fair price imho and the repair has a warranty for 36 Months/36,000miles for a piece of mind. They communicate well with customers using your smart phone with texting and email. When they found my leak, they sent me a text that they found the leak and an email with a pictures of the leaks. My first experience was positive and felt i was treated fairly and honestly and I already referred them to a friend. They have a comfortable waiting room that's more like a lounge with complementary cans of Soda and juice for kids with a kids play area too and snacks too. They have a complinentary shuttle too if you live close by and You can drop off your car and they'll text you when it's ready or just call them. They work on trucks and cars. I'd recomend that you try them out if you're in need of a car or truck repair I'll likely return if i need their services. Try them out today. they are also wheel chair accessible. I may update in 2021 if my a/c repair holds out or not.

John, thank you for this excellent review. We love hearing that our digital inspections are improving the auto repair buying experience. And the 36/36 warranty is one of the best in the business. Thanks again. Owners, Melanie & Joe, Honest-1 Auto Care.

What I really like about Honest 1. is that they will not allow your car to leave the shop unfinished. They stand by their work .
