Our vehicle broke a CV axle one night while in South Elgin. Our roadside assistance coverage only allows us to have the vehicle towed to a nearby auto shop. We decided to choose Honest-1 Auto Care, and we're extremely happy that we did. We were very impressed with the thorough inspection report and service we received. Ramon and Bob were great and very helpful in explaining what was wrong with the vehicle, what need to be fixed, and based on the inspection what other potential issues may occur in due time. We don't really live in the area, but I will definitely consider them again for our next unfortunate repair, and I highly recommend Honest-1 in South Elgin.

Very good service here 👍 not only do they find your problems with your car they send you pictures witch to me is a assurence of honesty.They also get things done in decent time and backed up by warranty.

I went there for an alignment, and the car is driving much better now! The price was fair too. Less than $100.

Thank you for the review Kristin! We appreciate you business, please do come again should your vehicle have any future repair or maintenance needs. *Owners, Joe and Melanie Koehnen, Honest-1 Auto South Elgin.

Had an issue with our Honda CR-V making a loud squeaking sound so we took it to Honest 1. Glad we did. Bob the main man there took care of us from start to finish! He explained everything in detail after a full comprehensive diagnostics was done and the work was done fast and ready in no team. Definitely will be going back again!

Place is very professional in the way they deal with the service of your car and the care of the customer! Was updated almost daily as to the status of my car! 89 Chevy so they didn’t feel comfortable doing all that was wrong with the car but fixed what they could and was honest enough to say hey we don’t get into this part of the car and returned it without making me throw money at things that their guessing on! All and all a good experience and I will be back! Most honest mechanics in awhile that I’ve come across

Thank you for the nice review Cedric! We hope you give us another try in the future, we aim to please. *Owners, Joe and Melanie Koehnen, Honest-1 Auto South Elgin.

They did everything they could on there end to help me out with an issue with my vehicle, unfortunately the warranty company didn’t cover the repairs needed but they did do everything else at a great price, also shuttled me to n from the shop and home which helped out a lot.

This has become my go to repair shop because of their transparency and fair pricing. Bob is my go to guy. They did a great job replacing my brakes and also provided me with a diagnostic report of my vehicle. Bob was very courteous and transparent throughout the process. Would recommend!

I was stranded with unexpected automobile failure. I was fortunate to be near them. I drove up, they fixed me up and I was on my way. They were very informative and most helpful !!! I highly recommend them. 👍👍👍

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.

Thank you Xenia for your wonderful review! We will always give you a free detailed inspection, and keep you up to speed regarding any safety/maintenance needs for your vehicle/s. Hope to see you again! *Owners, Joe and Melanie Koehnen, Honest-1 Auto South Elgin.
