These guys are great, they use only genuine Honda parts. They also look out for their customers. We have a 13 year old Accord. They rebuilt a A/C compressor for the price of a few seals and an hour of labor vs the cost of a rebuilt unit. They installed a rebuilt front axle assembly with two CV joints for less money than repairing a single bad CV joint. We will always have a Honda because of this shop.

I have searched high and low to find a fair and reputable mechanic who could do decent work while not "losing my shirt" in the process on price. Gary (forgive me, I don't recall his last name) and his wife Anna run the shop, and have always been fair and courteous, while saving me tons of money over the dealer. I would recommend them highly to anyone owning a Honda/Acura living in (or moving to) the Dayton, Ohio area. Now, if only I could find someone like this in Cleveland... Bryan Sterne

I normally do all my own maintenance and repair. Too often when I get my car back from a shop, I have to make a trip back because they forgot to tighten some bold or reattach a wire. When it came time to replace my timing belt, I was too busy to do it myself and looked in the mechan-X-files for a recommendation. I found Accu-Hon and was not disappointed. They made good recommendations on additional maintenance to be performed without trying to gouge me on unnecessary "gold plating". They did quality work at one of the best prices around.

Their garage is a little hard to find. Just be sure to watch the building numbers. I drove past it once before and saw it the second time around. As far as price is concerned they were the lowest. I checked it out with my usual garage and they wanted $350 for timing belt and water pump. That was before taxes. Auc-Hon wanted about $295. The final cost with taxes was about $315. I dropped the car off the night before and picked it up later the next day. They were very prompt and courteous, and their dog is very friendly. Just for the record I drive a 92 Civic Si Hatchback.

The first time I went to see Gary was after the dealership told me I needed a $600 brake job! Gary checked the car out and what I needed was $60 worth of brake pads. Over the years (15) Gary has "Watched" the car for things that will need to be done in the future and keeps me aware of what needs to be done now. My father, and two sons also take thier cars to Gary. My '92 is still running like the day I got it and it is turning 200,000 miles this week.

I can see that there are several favorable reviews here, and the man probably doesn't need another, but I might as well start him off for'06. My Dad has been having his old Honda maintained/repaired by Gary for years, and last time I saw my Dad I was complaining about the cost of an impending repair, he said I should give Gary a try. I did, and I saved $290.00 from what I had been quoted by a local garage (CV joints.) I also found out that the guy at the local garage lied to me about the nature of the repair, and for that I am extremely grateful. I live in Cincinnati, but my parents are in the vicinity, so I can hang out with them while the car is being serviced, and I am planning on having him do any major work that comes up in the future. It is SO nice to finally find an honest shop, I am thrilled to death.

This shop rocks! They are better than the dealer and cheaper too. I would consider buying a honda or acura again because a good shop is hard to find. The starter in my Intergra failed and the dealer wanted $400 to replace it. Gary fixed it for about $80.

We move all the time, and it's tough to find good mechanics. I found Gary through this post and have been impressed with his knowledge of all things Honda and Acura. We have both. I've recommended him to all my friends. Even the ones who don't have Hondas or Acuras want to go to him, but he won't do other car models.

Gary is a wonderful mechanic who works alone, charges fair prices, and never has made me feel that I'm being taken advantage of. I've asked him on a few occasions to give me a quick overview of my car's mechanical status/future and he has been very open and honest, as far as I can tell, letting me know which things I need to think about having repaired or replaced over the next year, and (since my car was older) if the replacing parts would even be worth it instead of just repairing to make the car last a little bit longer. I HONESTLY hesitated when I bought a new car that was not a Honda or Acura because I knew I was also losing the best mechanic I've encountered so far. Sometimes its a little difficult to arrange a time for a repair (a few days waiting list at times), but its a very minor criticism.

Gary deceived me about the condition of my car. It's a 1996 Honda Civic with 175k miles, still running great and looking good. It was due for another timing belt, so I asked him to check over the car to make sure it is worth doing. He totally dissed the car, down to a chip in the windshield and a battery that "looks old". More significantly, he told me the compression was only 110 psi and should be 150-180 psi, revealing that the engine was shot. A rebuild would be $3,000 to $4,000. Best to get rid of this car. I was saddened, as this car has been so great. Later, I wondered how the compression could be so bad and the car still run so good, so I took it to another mechanic to have the compression checked. He told me it's fine - 165 psi. That seemed almost too good, so I bought a gauge and checked it myself. Yes, it was OK, about 165 psi. Is Gary's gauge broken? Not likely. He just didn't want to work on the car, so he lied about the compression and probably never even checked it. It could have cost me thousands of dollars.
