It is *so* hard to find an honest mechanic to work on my car. After being pushed around at several different places (and not being able to believe my Ford really needed $3k in repairs), Pete at Honest-1 was recommended to me a year ago (this review has been a long time coming). I can't say enough about how well I was treated. Seriously, as a woman, so many of these shops treat me like I'm out of my league when I talk to them and like I couldn't ever really understand what they're saying. Pete was not only direct, honest, and friendly, but he showed me under my car what exactly was wrong, and helped me understand the necessary steps toward repair. Even beyond that, he gave me advice about what was really necessary, and what was actually inconsequential. BTW, I ended up spending less than $500 on the repairs that supposedly totaled $3000 elsewhere. I love you, Honest-1!
