Competent and very Friendly! Prices on the high end but I guess it is the price for quality!
Great customer service, quality mechanics.
Excellent service! 100% recommended!
I dont usually post reviews but Honka totally earned it. Im new in the area and for me finding honest people (not to mention much better pricing than the competition) to take care of my car is a relief. Im the kind of customer that is loyal when service is great. Totally recommend it.
These people are phenomenal in terms of service. First off they honored a store coupon that was misprinted or could easily be misinterpreted then they picked me up in their shuttle service at the time they closed at!
Excellent service. I love supporting a small business, and when they are as kind, considerate, and economical as Honka, it is so reaffirming to entrust my vehicle to them again and again. You aren't just a number of a vehicle make and model to these guys.
Great people. Good business.
Really lucky I found this place. They take great care of me and my truck. Honest people and they do a great job.
An excellent quality shop with excellent and respectful staff. I was there for a brake job. Only 50min.
I've recently moved to Largo FL from California and needed a good mechanic. Two different people told me Charlie at Honka Auto Repairs was good. So I thought he would be a good choice.
It's hard to find an honest mechanic, well I can say I had a great experience at Honka Auto. Took my car in for tire repair due to a nail in the tire. Car was in the shop within 10 minutes of me arriving, mechanic located the nail and brought it to me. He explained it didn't puncture the tire wall, checked my other tires and pressure and told me I was good to go... no charge. They could have easily charged me for a patch and I would have never known any different. Thank you Honka Auto, you've just got a customer for life & a 5 star review! Honesty goes a long way.
According to recent studies, 5 percent of all motor vehicle fatalities are clearly caused by automobile maintenance neglect.
The cooling system should be completely flushed and refilled about every 24 months. The level, condition, and concentration of coolant should be checked. (A 50/50 mix of anti-freeze and water is usually recommended.)
Never remove the radiator cap until the engine has thoroughly cooled. The tightness and condition of drive belts, clamps and hoses should be checked by a pro.
Change your oil and oil filter as specified in your manual, or more often (every 3,000 miles) if you make frequent short jaunts, extended trips with lots of luggage or tow a trailer.
Replace other filters (air, fuel, PCV, etc.) as recommended, or more often in dusty conditions. Get engine drivability problems (hard stops, rough idling, stalling, diminished power, etc.) corrected at a good shop.
A dirty windshield causes eye fatigue and can pose a safety hazard. Replace worn blades and get plenty of windshield washer solvent.
Have your tires rotated about every 5,000 miles. Check tire pressures once a month; let the tires cool down first. Don't forget your spare and be sure your jack is in good condition.
Check your owner's manual to find out what fuel octane rating your car's engine needs then buy it.
Keep your tires inflated to the proper levels. Under-inflated tires make it harder for your car to move down the road, which means your engine uses more fuel to maintain speed.
Lighten the load. Heavier vehicles use more fuel, so clean out unnecessary weight in the passenger compartment or trunk before you hit the road.
Use the A/C sparingly. The air conditioner puts extra load on the engine forcing more fuel to be used.
Keep your windows closed. Wide-open windows, especially at highway speeds, increase aerodynamic drag and the result is up to a 10% decrease in fuel economy.
Avoid long idling. If you anticipate being stopped for more than one minute, shut off the car. Contrary to popular belief, restarting the car uses less fuel than letting it idle.
Stay within posted speed limits. The faster you drive, the more fuel you use. For example, driving at 65 miles per hour (mph) rather than 55 mph, increases fuel consumption by 20 percent.
Use cruise control. Using cruise control on highway trips can help you maintain a constant speed and, in most cases, reduce your fuel consumption.
Keep your engine tuned. A fouled spark plug or plugged/restricted fuel injector can reduce fuel efficiency as much as 30 percent.
Inspect the engine's belts regularly. Look for cracks or missing sections or segments. Worn belts will affect the engine performance.
Have the fuel filter changed every 10,000 miles to prevent rust, dirt and other impurities from entering the fuel system.
Change the transmission fluid and filter every 15,000 to 18,000 miles. This will protect the precision-crafted components of the transmission/transaxle.
Inspect the suspension system regularly. This will extend the life of the vehicle's tires.
