My Wednesday afternoon smog check visit was the most efficient and friendly, fast smog check I have ever gotten in 20 plus years of smog checks, and I was getting worried as my truck sits a lot, and I was getting close to the deadline for renewal. Went down without a hitch, in and out inside of 20 minutes !

It isn’t always easy to find a mechanic that is trustworthy and fair when it comes to pricing. Howard is definitely my guy. He is very professional and is clear in his communication with you. I take both my Honda and Mazda for maintenance and oil changes to him and he does a great job. He knows what he’s doing and is always on top of his game.

I’ve been taking my little Civic to Howard for about 8 years now and him and his staff have always been fair, friendly and helpful. Consistently Howard has been honest with me about the work that needed to be done and has always provided it for a more than fair price. I only wish I could find a doctor I trust as much as I trust Howard!

Everything about Howard and his business is well worth 5 stars and spending my time adding to his other positive reviews. The most important reason Howard keeps our business is that we trust him. We’re just a couple of gals who know nothing about cars. Howard has taken care of us and our Toyota for years, and we wouldn’t go anywhere else. If there is a problem that can be handled in an economical way, as opposed to an expensive fix, he explains the options and is happy to save us some money. Hard to imagine, but true. Beyond that, he does everything in his power to get the car in for servicing around our time schedule. Finally, the guy is a gem! He’s just a pleasure to do business with. Thanks, Howard.

I have gotten my car tuned up here a couple times now. Each time I wound up getting off work early/didn’t have a prior appointment and they were able to squeeze me in their schedule no problem. Howard was super friendly and accommodating each time and I’ll definitely be taking my car here if I ever have any serious issues (hopefully not for awhile). Highly recommend coming here for either a tune up or any other reason-excellent customer service.

Today Howard saved me about $250. The dealer told me I needed several fluids changed… which were in fact perfectly clean once Howard took a look. He spent around 30min checking out various aches and pains in my aging car without charging me a dime. Thank you Howard! You get all of my business. About time I wrote a review.

Wow I can’t believe I wrote this review 4 years ago… I’ve been going to Howard ever since and he still blows me away with exceptional service. They have moved since, but same quality and care as before. Howard is the best!

Howard is the epitome of honest and friendly service. His new location is less convenient than it used to be, but I will gladly make the trek knowing that my aging car is in good hands. Howard has done smog checks, oil changes, suspension work, brake work, minor engine work, cooling system work, and identified and repaired a troublesome electrical short in my car over the past 8 years. He never tries to sell you more work than is necessary, and his prices are very reasonable. He is THE BEST and I wouldn’t go anywhere else.

They did a fabulous job to perform a smog check on my BMW X5. I was able to get in on the same day and then I could even change my appointment around a couple of times, because of work demands. This place is friendly and very affordable, I highly recommend it.

Howard is the only person I will trust with my car. He is fair, honest, and straightforward. I was referred to him by a trusted friend and refer people to him all the time. Only positive things have been reported back to me about Howard and the rest of his staff.

This has been, undoubtedly, the best experience I’ve had at an auto repair center. Howard has not only been inviting, but also extremely thorough. He invited me to my car to not only explain the issues but to physically show me the complications and provide creative solutions for the fix. It puts into perspective the severity, or lack there of, and the quality of work that needs to be done.

Howard is great, very genuine and integritous, with an honest estimate with what parts I needed and what exactly needed to be fixed. Service was great and you do not feel like you are being taken advantage of. After the fix he explains and shows you the parts that were replaced. Highly recommended ! “Thanks Boss”
