I've taken my previous Honda and my current Acura to Greg and have always received great, honest service. Definitely a better experience than the dealer. My engine light came on recently and Doug explined that if it went off it would be safe to drive the car until I could get it in for my appointment the following week. I was impressed with Doug's same honest, calm manor as Greg's.

I have a 97 Acura RL that I have taken to Greg at Dietz for over 2 years now. I take it there for the littlest thing like an oil change to major repairs (new radiator, timing belt replacement) and have always been completely happy. Never once has the car not been ready when Greg said it would be. You might have to wait a couple of days to get an appointment since Greg is pretty conservative in scheduling and it shows. Just yesterday, I dropped off the car for a 120k service at 8am. When I went to pick it up, I was cursing myself on the way for not asking him to fix the loose mudflap on the rear right tire. Amazingly, he had found that and fixed it at no charge! Always helpful and friendly, Greg at Dietz automotive is one reason I have stuck with Acura's and Hondas. When I bought my Acura, I was really keen to get an Infiniti instead - it really was the great repair shop that kept me with Acura.

Having been long-time Honda people, we were disappointed when we moved to Boise to find no Honda specialists. When out on our yearly whats-out-there car shopping expeditions, we drove other brands, because there were all sorts of other specialists in town. When Greg opened his shop we tried him out a few times, and he was as good as gold. He treated our rusted out New England Civic Hatchback with all the care (and careful handling - no washing allowed because it caused too much metal to fall off) that he gave to the flashy Accords and Preludes in his shop. When a collision sent our wondercar into Honda heaven, we confidentally bought another Honda, knowing it would be in good hands.

Greg is the greatest! If you have a Honda, he's your guy. He gives you straight answers and is careful with your wallet. Can't ask for better.

Greg Dietz - the owner is honest and reliable. He used to run/work in the Honda dealership shop sometime ago. He has since moved and setup this place on fairview. He has always been accomodating on all my cars problems. I have an 88 accord in perfect condition and one of the reasons i dont get something else is because greg only does honda/acuras. since i started taking my honda to him a year ago, i have had the timing belt replaced, a 120k service done, an oil leak fixed and a valve timing adjustment done. never has he done one thing more than necessary and there have been no surprises to pay for when i go to pick up my car. if he comes across something, he calls to explain it to you and ask you what you would like him to do. some of my friends also take their honda's to him - all of them are absolutely happy with his work. if you have a honda/acura and live in the treasure valley, greg is your man. call him 208-342-6600 if you are taking your car to the dealership, i suggest you pay him a visit.

Greg and his staff are knowledgable, friendly, and honest. They never do anything other than what needs doing and if they come across something unexpected they will call you to discuss before doing anything extra. They also use used auto parts when making repairs whenever possible to save you money (quality assured, of course). There is a convinient "night and weekend" option for dropping off cars as well. My family has been taking cars to Greg for years and have not yet encountered a single problem or complaint. Highly recomended.

Bought my used Honda Odyssey in August of 2005. I have taken it to Dietz for every scheduled service and I have been completely satisfied. My older sister, my younger sister and my parents all have Hondas and have been taking them to Dietz for years. Dietz is a Honda Certified mechanic. Dietz also has much more reasonable rates than any dealership. After our last service (oil and filter change) I noticed that the third brake-light bulb had been replaced (it had been burnt out for about 3 months prior) and I immediately called Dietz to thank him and he said that they do a complete check of the car after every service and repair or replace minor items, like a burnt out bulb. Dietz didn't charge for the parts ($0.89?) or labor (5 minutes?), but I'm sure a dealership would charge $4.00 for the bulb and a half hour of labor ($34.00). If you love your Honda, take it to Dietz!

Greg always finds time to have a little chat when I'm there with my car. He came highly recommended from a Honda owner, and I've always gone there since my car went off warranty. He's always polite, treats males and females the same, and keeps my car in great condition.
