I brought in an old 2001 Nissan because it would not pass smog. Previously I had taken it to PEP Boys and after checking it out said they did not want to try and fix it because they had bad previous experiences with these old cars. When I pushed them rhey referred me to Honest 1. Kurt at Honest1 was very professional and explained carefully their process. They did a full evaluation (Level 2 of 3) and found the leak. It would have been a $200 charge but they needed to replace a canister that cost $180 from Nissan! In any case they completed it and will check it in 100 miles and then I can get it to pass smog. Overall very good experience with a show stopper problem.

We were unable to diagnose exactly what was wrong with my car! The folks at Honest One took their time so that they could properly diagnose the issue and get it resolved! I appreciate their diligence and my car works great! Thanks so much for the assist!

Best Honest Detailed Mechanic in the OC - Brad is the man!

Found this establishment on Yelp and decided to schedule a routine oil change, based on their positive reviews. The manager, Brad, was really friendly and knowledgeable. After my oil change was complete, he had a couple service recommendations (replace engine filter, replace cabin filter, decarbonize fuel system), but was not at all pushy or overly persistent in an attempt to upsell. In fact, he told me that replacing the 2 filters is something that can be done fairly easily (as long as you are remotely car savvy). He then explained in layman’s terms how carbon builds up in the throttle body, and how it affects your cars performance. He said that cleaning the carbon from the fuel system isn’t something needed to be done immediately, since my car seemed to be operating fine, but suggested that I keep an eye on it and get it done before the noticeable effects start to happen. I even received a printed report with the recommendations listed. I will be revisiting for future oil changes and recommend this place to anyone looking for auto services.

Loved it! They greeted me with a smile and made me feel like i was in good hands. They explained everything in detail and offered great prices. I went in for an oil change, by far the least expensive I've ever paid. I brought in the oil and filter and they only charged me $25. They quickly inspected my car and diagnosed it free of charge. They found the solution to my shaky nissan 2014, there was a service bulletin for the problem. All i have to do is take it into Nissan to have my TCM reprogrammed free of charge. Thanks guys I will definitely be making this place my car repair shop. Very quick and affordable. I did not feel ripped off and got great service!

Good group of people running this shop. Didn’t try to sell me anything. Told me what I needed and had my car back very quick. Highly recommend!

Great attitudes and sense of humor. One thing people dread about getting their vehicles worked on is that they often deal with mechanics and employees who are arrogant, aloof and dismissive. Not here! Everyone was so friendly and helpful. What a great experience. I will absolutely be back and recommending this shop to my friends and family! Thanks again!
