I was recommended to this shop by a friend of a friend and I have to say, I'm indebted to that friend. These guys are so amazing! My initial phone call was with a gentleman named Sean. He was polite, patient and broke down all the costs to diagnose my car. He told me he could look at it right away, so I hustled in there and was greeted by Sean and then was passed over to Brandon. I told him my story..."just bought a new, used car with issues, unemployed and want to get a full synopsis of what I am dealing with". He told me he would have some answers in a few hours and offered me a ride home! Then came the phone call. He broke everything down in layman's terms and gave me a list of prioritized issues, as I'm not made of gold. I am so forever grateful for the honesty, patience and overall care that I was treated with at Hontech Automotive and this will be my shop for years to come.

There are 3 things that you don't ever give up once you find them: a good hairdresser, a good dentist, and a good mechanic. Hontech is the very best. It starts with the friendly attitudes, always a cheerful greeting. It continues with the knowledge; these guys know what they're talking about and they will explain it all to you in terms that you can understand. And most importantly, there's the trust factor. They will tell you if you have a service coming up in the future and exactly how long you can put it off if you want to get a few more miles on your car before shelling out the bucks. I have never, ever had to return my car to Hontech for service problems. They fix it right the first time.It's a good feeling to bring my car here and know that no one will try to take advantage of me or fix something that ain't broken, or worse yet fail to fix something that is broken! I can recommend Hontech without reservation.P.S. If you need transportation, they will give you a ride to work and pick you up at end of day.

I've been going to these guys since I moved to San Diego in 1988, even before they were at their present location. When I moved to San Diego, I asked three co-workers who had Hondas who they went to for service, and they all said Hontech, so that seemed like a good omen. And it was. These guys know their stuff, and are extremely trustworthy. They do top-quality work, and their prices are fair. After 20+ years of service to my cars, I can see that they have kept three of my Hondas in great working order, saving me lots of time and trouble. Best mechanics I have ever had in my 50+ years here on planet earth...they can make your ride last forever!

Lifesavers...miracle workers... That's what the staff at HonTech are. After experiencing, by far, the worst experience I've ever had at another repair shop, bringing my car here was the best decision I ever made! They fixed what they could of the "hot mess" that the previous shop had left behind and gave me back, what feels like, a brand new car! They are an awesome group of people who really know what they're doing and can walk you step by step down the road to your car's recovery. I'm so happy I found them.

I have been using Hontech since I moved to SD in the fall of '07. So far, I've had several oil changes, two inspections, a minor service, and one big service. I will be moving out of SD for a year & I've already resolved to move back within walking radius of Hontech when I get back, because I love them that much & can't imagine taking my Civic anywhere else.They are dependable, quick, honest, and friendly - when I took my car in for its big service, I nearly went into heart failure when they emailed me the estimate, which was a multipage PDF document with all sorts of stuff that I didn't understand. The owner called & we spent 20 minutes going over everything line by line. I've never felt like I was getting talked into needless service, my car always feels better after it gets back from their shop, and they are great about staying in touch if your car is going to be in for a while. They even called to make sure I was OK with replacing a $2 bolt when my car was getting $2K worth of work, since it wasn't on the original estimate!As a bonus, they always have dog treats for my dog when we come in & shower attention on her, which is always nice.

I LOVE this place. It was recommended to me by two other Honda owners. They took amazing care of my 1997 Civic--helped me get it to 200K miles before I sold it. They treat everyone with respect, and explain anything to you.When my radiator blew in N. County, I called them to talk to them about what the dealership told me needed to be replaced, and how much it would cost me. They told me information to say to the dealer, and how to make sure I wasn't getting taken by the salesmen in the shop. They totally had my back!I really wish it was open on the weekends! It's too far out of my way for regular oil changes, but I definitely make appointments for the bigger tune ups.

Fantastic Service!I love Hontech more than any other non-dealer shop in San Diego. They have impeccable service and tend to go above and beyond on a very consistent basis. I've only had one bad experience: a missing cap of some sort spewed oil all over my engine bay, the subsequent steam cleaning left the car inoperable after a few miles driving. In light of the inconvenience, they remedied it beyond my satisfaction by first fixing the problem, then sending my mom (her car) and I to dinner on their dime.One word of warning, expect to pay near- if not same-as-dealer pricing on most services. Think of it as Honda dealer pricing, with Lexus-level service.I'm excited now that they service Toyota and Lexus, too!
