I began visiting Hovson's in March 2007. During my first visit I asked that they please find out why the check engine light on my car would not shut-off. In the months which followed, I visited the shop 1 to 4 times a month. These frequent, monthy visits continued for more than a year.

The motor which was replaced in the passenger side door, once again became inoperative in 9/08.
Tires placed on the car in 5/07, were all completely worn out 1 year earlier. Recently, Good Year replaced these.
My car again requires a tune-up though one was performed in 8/07.
Hovson's was unable to find what was causing the smell of oil to permeate the interior of my car, though they checked on and off for a period of 6 months. The engine was cleaned and oil refilled but to no avail. Earlier this year, I visited AAMCO in the city of Glendale, CA, and within 30 minutes they located the broken gasket through which oil was leaking. The leak was so extensive, it had covered the lower portions of my engine with oil and had caused corrosion to form on my battery terminals. Interestingly enough, Hovson had said that the corrosion was due to my not checking my terminals, periodically. Huh?
In 10/08, the owner and his son informed me that my car needs a new or a rebuilt transmission. The owner said, it would cost a minimum of $2000 to start the repairs. Seconds later, he said that he did not know what type of work was required as he had not "opened the transmission." Then how did he know I have transmission problems and how could he quote a cost to repair.

Avoid this dishonest establishment. The state's Bureau of Auto Repair spoke to the Vic, the owner's son, who admitted they were not qualifed to correct the problem affected the check engine light. Why then did they charge me for alleged inspections and repairs?

Pros: Near my home.

Cons: Ineptitude. Shoddy tires. Poor workmanship. Misrepresentation.
