This is a small independent shop that specializes in Honda and Acura. They first got my attention one day when I was driving by in my old Acura legend and noticed an NSX up on the lift. I decided to stop in and ask them about my rear struts. The Acura dealer said they needed replacement (this at around 70,000 mi). Luis took a look and told me the right one was leaking fluid. I asked if it had to be changed. He said yes eventually, but not yet. 20,000 miles and several visits later Luis said it was time to change the strut. I asked if we had to change the other one, too. He said "why? that one's not leaking". After that, he became my mechanic for life. I've never been disappointed. What I really like about this place is that they guy who does the estimate, the guy who does the work, and the guy who takes your money are all the same guy! What a concept! They have 3 bays. The staff consists of Luis and one other mechanic. They use all genuine Honda parts.

Excellent service at a very reasonable price. Luis is very honest and will always take to time to explain a problem. He has never tried to sell a repair that I do not need. In fact, he has talked me out of a few.

I had an appointment and was there on time, first thing in the morning. The proprietor was LATE! The shop is not well kept and generally a mess. They worked on my rear brakes, replacing the brake shoes, but didn't even bother to adjust the parking brake. They didn't call when the vehicle was done as they said they would, I had to call them.
