Our Honda mechanic is retiring...sad day

Next to Honda quality, the primary reason for staying with Honda was our mechanic...sad day.

It's hard to find competence, reliability, and integrity all rolled into one package anymore...been with him for over ten years.

He's vetting some other shops so he can refer his customer base out, so, hopefully, all is not lost.

It is sad when a good manager or doctor or other service provider retires. But in the wings there is another good person out there. You just have to find them.

I just had new ball joints installed on our 09 Honda CRV toad by the Honda Dealer we bought it from. When I went to get the CRV the service manager told me "I forgot to add the cost of the 4 wheel alignment to your estimate, but a service quote from me is binding, so don't worry about paying for it". I told her I didn't mind paying for services rendered but she said "no, a quote is a quote, you don't owe us a thing. Just remember us next time you need a new Honda or service".

Good luck . I'm sure someone will show up as good as your last mechanic.

Good Luck, Be Safe and Above All, Don't Forget To Have Fun

Our dealer's certified master tech recently retired after nearly 30 years in RV service. I hate to think about the knowledge/tech experience lost w/him gone.

I'm surprised you even know your Honda mechanic. I thought they were like the Maytag repairman--lonely.

If you'll change the timing belt in a Honda when it's due to be changed, it'll be about all you have to do.

Only problem currently is the rear tires' camber is not adjustable, and the Civics and Accords are eating tires on the insides. I just spent $300 putting adjustable top arms on our Civic SI. Otherwise, it's never seen the shop.
