Prior to my current car, I had a 1980 Datsun 210 that when my older brother owned it, was serviced at the Good News Garage. But since then it was cared for by a bunch of cretins and thugs (including myself). Finally, after being told I needed a $400 caliper replacement I took it to Hometown where Steve fixed the problem in less than an hour and charged me under $30. There's none better or more honest, though his dog does occassionally bite.

Now, I am a woman, and usually male auto mechanics think I'm stupid, even though I'm a mechanical engineer and know more about my car than they think I do. But, Steve is different... He's honest and treats men and women equally, which is a refreshing change!!! His prices are extremely reasonable. Though his shop is not located along any public transportation, he or his wife usually will drive you to your work. He is very accomodating, and knows your name after a visit. It's a very family atmosphere. The waiting room is not a typical garage waiting room. It has curtains and is beautifully decorated. I will not go to any other mechanic.

Good place for tires at a reasonable price. Had some brake work done on my 99 Subaru. They took the lets replace everything approach, (ie Calipers, Rotors, Pads on the front) and thankfully only adjusted the rear... Anyway, it was an expensive repair $250. They do provide shuttle service which is a plus.

I have lived in five states in the East ans West Coasts, driven three cars into the 200+K range of miles each and NEVER found a shop as GOOD as this one. Not a home run, a bottom of the ninth, GRAND SLAM!!! To win the game of course. Highly recommend Steve and Hometown Tire!!

27 Oct 2009 Re: Home Town Tire & Auto, Wiliston, VT Minor jobs, such as repair of leaking tire, are often done at no charge. Diagnosis of problems are always at no charge. One day, I noted that Steve (Doney), the owner, was absent. I asked where he was and was told he was out back in the shop getting a haircut. When I asked how that came to be, I was told, "Steve has a barber come in every two weeks, and EVERYBODY that works here gets a haircut."

In 2006 we left Vermont to live in Arizona and one of the most difficult things in moving was leaving the great network of trustworthy companies I'd come to know, one being Hometown Tire and Automotive, owned by Steve and Denise Doney. At one time I had a fleet of cars ranging from a '63 Rambler Classic 770, '70 Cougar XR7, '84 Corvette and usually 2 late model Honda CRVs. In all cases, Steve's crew knew exactaly what was needed for each, often didn't charge for things and we never had to return with a problem from their work. When I bought the Rambler, there was something wrong with the carburator and Steve was so intent on finding it, he found an 'ol time mechanic that knew Rambers and who told them just how to set it...it worked like a dream then. Another example, I'd purchased a 4Runner with 25k and new tires. When the treads filled, it seemed to skate. Steve said the tires were not a good fit (but was what came with it even though they were new replacements. I trusted Steve (though I was a new customer then), paid the $600+ and was happy ever after!
