I have an old car and feel 100% confident that my mechanic will be honest with me about what’s wrong and whether he thinks it’s time to donate it and buy a new one. I trust him (Julio) completely, they never have tried to over-sell me, and I plan on continuing to go to Honest 1 in San Carlos even when I buy a new car.

I had someone else to work and they helped me to get it corrected. They were friendly and knowledgeable. Julio was very hepful.
