Gary is a great mechanic; he has worked on my van and car. He is very knowledgeable and honest. He will stand behind the work he does.

Gary Hokfer is a dependable and honest person to deal with. His shop did a nice job repairing the air condition system on my son's auto. Recommend highly and will use again.

Really great people. I trust what they tell me. They know when to send me to a dealer when they can't do something themselves, or if it would be covered by Warrantee.

My whole family takes our cars here. Gary is dependable and fast worker, plus all work is promised for X amount of miles. Hyundai's owners know that some people cring when you mention the brand to mechanics, but its not been a problem for them. Gary is honest, and won't sell you a part unless you 100% need it. As a matter of fact once I was going to bring in my car b/c the antenna was stuck up, and the motor was broken, instead of charging me $200 for a new one he asked if I would mind just leaving it up. He disconnected the motor, and didn't charge me anything. When I moved to Charleston he even gave me tips on how to find a good new machanic. I highly recommend Gary's shop.

Great work. Got an oil change but no smell from spilt oil on the engine because they do clean work. He likes to explain the work needed, face-to-face, while pointing out parts under the hood. I had to make an appointment because Hofker does a lot of business. I gave him a list of possible problems I thought there may be with my truck, he checked it out, and called me back. I was told what it needs, how soon it needs it, and how much each thing costs to repair. This is the best mechanic I've delt with in 12+ years.

My Daughter lives in Knoxville and attends UT. I live on the coast. I have been able to get them to look over her car and give me a very reasonable and trustworthy analysis of problems that others in the area couldn't fix. I highly recommend them especially if you are a woman were other mechanics may take advantage. They are highly qualified and can fix just about anything. Great Mechanics!! I just wish they were nearer to me. T

Gary is very competent and honest. First rate business will certainly return when additional repairs are needed.

A real gem! Gary Hofker's Auto Repair is one of those rare places that people, who are truly concerned about their vehicle's care, are always looking for. Good, honest automotive knowledge and service that you can depend on at a fair price. Repairs are done only as needed or requested and less costly alternatives are readily suggested.
