Like doing business with your mom. People drop by to visit and have fun. They welcome dogs. Experienced mechanics talk to owners about the work. The local dealerships respect this shop. Can't say enough, trust, trust, trust!

Hosi kept my old '83 Honda going for great prices - with such great service I bought a new Honda when the time came, rather than change mechanics. I recommend them wholeheartedly, unabashedly and with unmitigated joy.

When an OEM bracket for my license plate turned out to be very expensive, Laurie was noticeably upset over it, and checked what their price was (with the intention of offering that price to me if it was reasonable); when that price was still higher than she thought was appropriate, she called in a mechanic to suggest an alternative method of attaching it - which they did, while I waited, for free.

Hi, I met Laurie when my older brother used her for service on his Honda...later I suggested her to my mother-in-law when she acquired a Honda. I once remarked to Laurie that she was a powerful motivation for me purchasing one! Several years later, after I had moved to Denver, I purchased a Honda and, while chatting with my neighbor about her Honda I asked if she knew of a mechanic in town, as the only good one I knew was in Boulder. She remarked, "you mean Hoshi?" She had spent some time at school in Phoenix, and when her regular maintenance was due, drove it back and forth to Boulder for the work!

Hi again, I just did a survey and wanted to add a further comment. When I shared a Honda with my mother-in-law, it needed the alternator replaced. Since it was a simple repair, I offered to do the work. Unfortunately, when installed at the factory, the attachment bolt was mounted such that the entire assembly needed to be removed from the block or the bolt head cut off and pulled out. I spoke with Laurie on the phone and she informed me that she had seen this on half of the Hondas of the era and offered to give me a replacement from the "parts" cars in her yard, after the local dealership informed me they did not even stock the part! When I arrived she apologized for not having time to remove it herself and handed me HER tools. I pulled the bolt and finished the repair. When was the last time YOUR mechanic lent you tools in THEIR shop!

NOTE: I have dealt with these people only once -- today -- so "always" (above) means "based my extremely limited experience." I am new to Boulder, so I looked at the Car Talk 'recommended mechanics' database, which is how I found Hoshi's. I am SO ENTHUSIASTIC about them that as soon as I got home, I sat down to add my comment to the many already on-line. I have had the Volvo 745 Turbo (1992) from new. It is now running better than ever before, since being serviced today. In addition to a major service, they attended to a list of little things I gave them. Each one was fixed and each item had N/C against it. When I looked under the hood, I noticed that the battery terminals had been thoroughly cleaned because the gleaming chrome caught my eye. It is a very long time since I spent a few hundred dollars having a car worked on, and came away feeling very satiisfied indeed with what I got for my money. I can see why everyone raves about them.
