A-1 Auto specializes in Honda, Acura, and Toyotas only. They are exceptionally honest, and have on two occasions advised us to take the car to the dealer, claiming that the dealer was better equipped to serve us. Never have they tried to sell us unnecesary service. My wife is driving her second Acura, a 2000 "TL", this replaced her 1991 "Integra" with 335,000+ miles. The owner of A-1 Auto and I agree that she is not good about changing oil often enough. We also agree, that with that kind of mileage on a car, we can't nag her about it!

This guy is really from the old school, and is THE most decent, civilized, conscientious mechanic I ever encountered. (With those qualities, why he's in the car repair business, I don't know.) Really, though, he's on the aging side but still builds up beautiful, fast cars. If you want the perfect mechanic, here he is.

These mechanics are that rare anomaly; individuals who care about you and your needs; individuals who are extremely competent mechanics; and mechanics who are reasonable in price and will do almost anything to accomodate you. They are extremely honest and fair. They are the kind of mechanics that you will search most of your life for and only rarely find. I am so thankful I found them 15 years or so ago....and they haven't changed in their goal to take care of you as well as your car!
