Best Service In Big Town
Honest Automotive is the best. Small town hospitality in a big town is rare. John does what right for the customer and I'd take my vehicles to him anytime and have for 10 years!

He quoted the repairs and did a great job for what he quoted, would tell others about my great experience.

Professional and Friendly
John was easy to talk to and explained things clearly. I've dealt with other mechanics that have spoken to me in a demeaning and belittling manner and John was definitely NOT like that. He was flexible with ordering parts and got the repair done quickly. I've had my vehicle back only one day so hopefully, mechanically, the repair was done well and holds up. He installed a used transmission in a PT Cruiser and so far so good. My other vehicle, Chevy Traverse, is in a different shop for four weeks now...I wish I had taken it over to Honest Automotive instead.

great service
Had my brakes relined.They told me when to bring it in and when i could pick it up and the van was ready to go when they said it would be done.They did not try to do a bunch of add on work. Easy to deal with.

They me informed me of the result immediately after checking the computer codes (misfire of all 6 cylinders ). They told me the possible causes and suggested the least expensive solution (replace spark plugs). They continued to test and ensure all problems (1 malfunctioning ignition coil) were identified and fixed in the most economical manner. They called and informed me of the status each step of the way. They told me to bring it back if the check engine light came back on. I felt involved during the whole process.

Truly an Honest Auto Place
We had an issue with our Traverse's radiator fan staying on after shutting the car off. Rick treated us like family both on the phone and in person when explaining to us what he thought the issue was. He made us feel like he truly cared for us and getting our car fixed and back to us in the quickest and most cost efficient way. John seemed extremely knowledgeable, and treated us with respect. He answered our questions, and encouraged us to come back if we had any further issues. Honest Automotive is a friendly, honest, neighborly experience that I would recommend to anyone.
