I can't say enough positive things about this shop. Finding an honest, straight-forward mechanic is always a challenge but we have definitely hit the jackpot with George's shop. The first time we took our Accord to George, he had his staff check the fuel system for nearly an hour trying to find/recreate the problem. When they couldn't, George told me to take the car, and if the problem happened again to immediately bring it in and he would look at it as soon as I got there. The kicker is that the charge for looking at our car, removing and checking the fuel filter and putting the car on his "computer thing" was exactly ZIP!! George is very busy but continues to expand to meet the needs of his customers. He sends us a monthly newsletter with very helpful information about our cars, including those "secret" service bulletins that the dealership hides under the cash register! We like Honda products anyway but a mechanic like George means we will always drive at least one Honda.

Have been servicing a variety of Hondas for about 20 years and I/we have always been satisfied. George's goal is that his customers be able to drive their cars for 200- 300,000 miles or more. George has also started servicing Toyotas. Have always been able to get prompt rides and pickups (occassionally loaners). If you do wait (for an oil change, for example), they have a comfortable waiting room and free drinks and goodies. I only wish (1) they were open Saturdays, (2) they were located more centrally, and (3) they did warranty work (they are very careful to refer you back to the dealer rather than charge you). I will occasionally have an oil change done elsewhere for convenience but for anything serious, always go to George. He's also very generous -- he did a complete major service and overhaul on an older Civic we were donating to a young Chilean couple for no charge when we asked that the car be made safe and reliable (paying for that is the major reason we didn't sell the car). I plan to always drive a car that can be serviced by George.

George and his staff are always eager to do the job right the first time, and strive to save their customers money. By doing this, they earn their living by keeping their customers and gaining new ones via word of mouth. George himself is very knowledgeable and has a wonderful sense of humor (reminding me of Click & Clack in that sense). He organizes repair and automotive knowledge seminars for women. Finally, on a personal note, when a friend of mine had a blown head gasket in her 94 Civic and couldn't afford to repair it, George was caring enough to buy it from her so she could purchase a different vehicle. Then George fixed the Civic and sold it to a single mother for only what he put into it. No financial gain on his part; that's just the kind of person he is. My only complaint is that I wish they had Saturday hours, though I understand why they don't.

This was the best place I could have possibly taken my Honda to get serviced. I was from out of town, heading back to Ohio, and saw it was recommended here, so I took my van for an oil change. I've never had my van serviced by a more honest, competent mechanic than George Witt. Cheers.

Even if I did not like Hondas (I do like them) I would suggest buying one just so that you can got to this mechanic shop. I am a gal who knows little about cars, but I feel very comfortable taking my car here. They really help me understand the work that is done and my cars run smoothly as a result.

Great sadness compels that I write this review. I drive an older model Honda Accord, and when I moved back to Lincoln, I was told by numerous people that the ONLY place to take a Honda for any work was George Witt's, and so I did. My first experience was excellent. The problem was fixed and I received a thorough evaluation and write up on the issues with my vehicle. Since then, I have had terrible experiences. My first bad experience was when I was having issues with the vehicle overheating and I suspected a problem with my radiator. As the problem wasn't dire (yet), I called GW's and made an appointment for the next week (earliest appointment). The day I was to drop off my car, I received a call from George who stated that they would be unable to honor my appointment (from nearly 10 days before) and if I wished to wait it would be another 2 weeks. George referred me to Watson's Auto, just around the corner, who repaired my radiator and delivered as they promised they would. Being the loyal customer that I am, I returned to GW's when my muffler fell off in a car wash earlier this summer. I made an appointment and brought my car in only to be told that I had to pay a $20 fee to have them give me a quote on fixing the problem. I was informed that the inspection fee would be applied to any work I had done, so I agreed. I obviously needed a new muffler, but it needed additional exhaust work and I received a quote to have the needed repairs. I paid for the work over the phone (10% more than the quote and they forgot to credit my "quote charge") and picked up my car after hours. My first thought was that the car was still really loud (as it had been without a muffler) but I thought it was just me. I returned to them a couple weeks later to have them take a second look at the vehicle, and they determined that another piece of the exhaust needed to be replaced. I was upset as I had just been in to have the exhaust worked on and I expressed that frustration because had I known the full extent of the work to be done I likely would not have done it. Sensing my frustration, they offered to put the piece in and not charge me any labor. A week later... I got a call "I don't feel comfortable doing that for you and if you want it installed you have to pay for the labor, too". If you have an older car or have ever driven a car until its death, you have a number in your head. That number represents the break-point when you throw in the towel and go get your new car, for me the number was $1,000. When I had the first round of exhaust work done the total quote was for $410, the bill was for $450(10% over the quote that I had to pay upfront for). With this additional work that they negligently missed, the total would have been closer to $730 or getting really close to my break-point. Bottom line, George Witt's Service: (1) Canceled my appointment the day of the appointment after a 10 day wait (2) Charged 10% over a quote that I had to pay for (which only included 60% of the needed work) (3) Promised to "Take care of me" only to withdraw the offer 5 days later I would say have them diagnose for $20, but they don't even seem to get that right anymore! It's a sad day when an institution, a lifetime in the making, is being destroyed by a lack of integrity and inattention to detail.
