Hoshi is the best. Over the past 15 years we have occasionally been tempted to buy a different make car, but knowing that Hoshi only works on Hondas we always end up buying another one. Recent highlight, while waiting for a brake repair, they not only accommodated my nine year old's incessant questions and curiosity, I got to participate in the daily yoga class with the mechanics.

I called and asked about making an appointment. They were extremely flexible and offered for me to come in right away to get the problem (power steering fluid leak) looked at. They tightened a hose, filled it with fluid and got me on my way (no charge.) This kind of service is rare to find these days!

I took my Acura to this shop for emissions repair after moving to Colo from California and failing the emissions test. (No joke, Colo. now has the Nation's highest emissions standards.) Not only did they make the necessary repairs, but they took the car back to the emissions testing facility so when I picked up my car I already had the paperwork. They definitely went the extra mile.

I have been taking my Honda Civics to Hoshi for twenty years and the most amazing thing about the shop is that it's owned by a woman! Laurie worked on my Honda at another shop before she started her own and I just followed her to Hoshi. When you find a good mechanic who you can trust, you follow her around like a good haircutter! I never fear being taken advantage of when I take my car to Hoshi. I might consider another kind of car, but then I'd have to give up Hoshi and I don't want to shop for another mechanic. Also, Laurie keeps employees for ages! Some of those guys will probably die working for Laurie. To me that means she treats her employees well and I like to patronize places where employees are considered part of the family. Keep up the good work, Laurie!

I stopped at Hoshi motors by coincidence when my volvo muffler broke on a road trip. The volvo mechanic invited me under the car, showed be the problem gave me references in town to get it fixed, and then sent me on my way no charge. One year later I called Hoshi motors from the road when my car started to make awful noises and I knew I'd be arriving in Boulder shortly. The volvo mechanic was going to be out before I made it to Boulder--but he gave me his guesses and provided me his cell phone. He insisted I call him and tell him what the other mechanic in the closest city I could make it to told me to make sure I didn't get hosed. He knew I did not live in Boulder, he had no obligation to me as a customer---he did this out of the kindness of his heart. This is the type of shop that comes around once in a lifetime. I would drive hours out of my way to to patronize Hoshi Motors, I recomend them to anyone.

They are the best car shop I have ever had. They're super knowledge, friendly, and sympathetic to the costs of repairs and what the customer has to go through. Their labor rates are even less than other mechanics! I drive from Denver to Boulder (30 miles) to go to them because they are extremely honest. I have been going to them for over 10 years and will continue to go to them as long as I own a honda or an acura. They have high customer loyalty-- I know others who go out of their way to take their car to them. They go the extra mile. You couldn't find a better place for your Honda or Acura!

I have used Hoshi Motors and known Lori Farmer for many years (since purchasing my first Accord in 1979). Lori is a great person; the kind you can always depend on for good advice and unflinching fairness. A real oddity in todays world. As for treating males and females in the same manner, I can confirm she treats males as equals of females without fail! Hoshi and Lori Farmer are the best!
