Unless I’m under warranty I don’t ever go back to the dealer. For most stuff even when I’m still under warranty, as long as my shop is ASE certified they’re still the better choice. It’s just not the case that only a Honda dealer can keep a Honda humming.


They’re ASE certified. He told me that if he found something problematic, he’d call first and let me know.

My partner has used him before and says he’s a straight shooter and does good work.


Most of the time dealerships have a 200% part markup and like $140/hr rate. Crazy expensive


Insane, isn’t it?
