I have had my 91 Honda towed to Dan's several times! I've used him for years. He knows everything there is to know about Hondas (I'm pretty certain it's the only kind of car he works on). His recommendations are always reasonable based on the age and condition of my car. Rates are very fair. Appointments are sometimes booked a couple of weeks out because he's so busy, but I wouldn't use any other mechanic.

Found Dan through my daughter who is tight with a dime and always looking for a good deal (cheap). Went to him for service on her AC. Dan says he can do the fix, but advises said daughter to take it to a dealership where she can get the work done free due to a newly released statement by Honda. Does the word honest fit here? Have gone to him twice since then to have work done on a clutch and brakes. Both times work done on time, with a more than fair price. The guy is good, a well kept secret to Honda and Acura owners on the far East Side of Columbus. Impossible to find at current location of old Courtright and Refugee, but has advised me of his impending move to Brice Road and Interstate 70. S.W. Corner.

Dan is great. I have a 1986 Honda Civic which I've owned since, well, 1986. It is starting to rattle a little bit! He made all necessary repairs, found a broken spring (based on my vague description that something wasn't right "back there"), and adjusted my smooshy clutch for no charge. He recommended replacing the timing belt, which I thought was a good idea, but I also had some recollection that it had already been replaced. He could have told me that it needed replacing and just done it, and I wouldn't have argued. Instead, he checked it out, determined that it had indeed been changed, and left it alone. What an honest guy! He'll be taking care of her until she rusts away into dust.

I brought my '88 Honda Accord LX 5-speed (197,000 miles) to Dan after first having it towed to the local Honda dealer. It had died along the freeway after gradually losing power and coughing for about 2 miles. The Honda service advisor called and told me that the car had started up fine for them, and they wanted to begin their repairs by replacing the distributor, for $700 plus - but since they weren't able to re-creat the problem, they didn't know if it would do any good. In consideration of the age and mileage of the car and my reluctance to drop $700 into it and not knowing if it would help, I thought a second opinion was in order and I decided to give Dan a try after checking with the Better Business Bureau and learning that he was in Excellent standing with them, as well as being a member. He listened patiently to my descriptions of the problem, and he and I discussed it at length as to possibilities, which I greatly appreciated. After keeping the car for a few days and also unable to duplicate the symptoms, he diagnosed the problem as a vacuum leak to the air intake where the inlet flap was not functioning. Total cost for the work was $70 and so far, the the car has been driving well, and several months have passed. I felt that Dan was very helpful, honest and professional in his dealings with me, and I should I have any more problems I would bring my dear old Honda to him first next time. He is a factory trained technician as well, which is very reassuring. Thanks Dan!

I got an estimate for a muffler and exhaust pipe at a Honda dealership first and then I went to Honnaman and his price was about 140 dollars cheaper.

I used the cartalk/mechanics file website to find this mechanic and I couldn't be more pleased. The pricing was better than either of the dealers I received estimates from for the 105,000 maintenace and for changing the timing belt. The owner was pleasant, informative on what he was going to do and what I need to do in the future, and very accomodating to my schedule to set up the appointment. Although I have a Honda dealer that is closer to my house I will be having my car serviced at Honnaman.

Dan is a good mechanic and Teresa is a awesome receptionist. I couldn't afford the axle.but I had a major issue with my timing chain bunched up around the sprockets and loosened around the tensioner. And he fixed the sludge that was stuck in the screen around the solenoid and it was no more than 1,200 bums. (Which is much cheaper than what the dealer cost). This wasn't the only thing he had to replace there was much more so the price was definitely worth it.
