As a regular customer, Carmen has actually performed one or two minor repairs for me free of charge. He's going to give auto mechanics a bad name! When I trade in my '86 Accord (which he's helped me put almost 200,000 miles on), I'm hesitant to get something other than a Honda because I've found an honest shop, and he doesn't work on anything else.

A real honest knowledgable repair shop for any automobile.

I have been bringing all my cars for years to Carmens Honda. I feel they have the best mechanics around for foreign and domestic repairs. All the mechanics in the shop take care of your car as if it was there own.The repair prices are resonable,the shop is very clean and all of the mechanics are polite and courtiest.From oil changes to engine jobs they are the best. It's worth the trip to have your car serviced by Carmen's Honda. I give them a five star rating.

Since moving into the area 15 years ago, I have always taken my Honda's to him. Not only does he know what he is doing, he is very friendly and explains everything to you. Yes, his prices might be a lttle bit higher than some but you get more than you pay for. Also, don't be surprise if you only have a minor problem that he doesn't charge you for it.

I've been going to Carmen for 13 years now and I can't speak highly enough of him and the people who work with him. He knows Hondas and Acuras better than some mechanics who work for dealerships. He's not inexpensive, but then again, you get what you pay for. I've got family member who come from out of state just to have him work on their cars. While he only works on Hondas and Acuras, my brother in law who had a Saab needed help on a Saturday and Carmen help him and only charged something minimal. Hopefully he won't retire any time soon.

Carmen has been working on my 1994 Honda Accord LX for years. Bought it used but you would never know it. He always gives me a straight answer when dealing with a repair. I live over 20 miles away but would never trust my car to anyone but him.

I've had Carmine work on my Honda and Acuras since I moved to Cranford over seven years ago. I saw them while driving downtown and saw "Honda and Acura Specialist" and gave them a try. They're excellent. Always tells you how it is and straight. Since they use genuine OEM Honda parts, you'll pay the extra price, but he lets you know up front the prices and alternatives, if available. Only problem is no Sunday hours, but that's good for Carmine to rest.

Carmen and his staff deserve a 5 star rating. He kept my '92 Accord running to over 277,000 miles. If someone hadn't totaled it in a car accident, it would still be going. Grazie, Carmen!

They were honest. I went there because my '05 Accord wouldn't start this morning. I thought it was possibly the battery but maybe a starter or alternator. Turned out it was just a loose battery terminal. I will be back the next time the car needs service - scheduled or unscheduled like today. Bonus: no charge. My embarrassment at not checking the terminal was payment enough....
