This is the second time I’ve used Hobson and I’m very impressed with their operation. Within an hour or so of dropping off the car we received a detailed email and text with a breakdown of everything they checked. They clearly identified what was urgent vs what could wait.When I called to discuss they were informative and straight forward. I didn’t compare their prices to others but they seemed reasonable.Even though we didn’t get anything done today (no urgent issues ) there wasn’t a charge. When the time comes to fix the future issues they identified I will definitely be going back.

First time using Hobson’s for auto repair. A friend recommended them.Very nice to have a local company that I will use for all future repairs. I’ll also recommend to friends.

I can't recommend Hobson's Auto Repair enough. Everyone is professional and the shop runs like clockwork. I have an old car and it would be easy to find all kinds of "necessary" repairs each time I take it to the shop. Never happens at Hobson's and I never feel overcharged. So happy I found this place and will not go anywhere else. Appreciate your kindness and professionalism.

My 1st time at Hobson’s which I was recommended to use from a friend and they did not disappoint. The link they send you with photos and an explanation of the items is 1st class. Never seen that from a mechanic. We’ll be bringing both our cars there from here on out.

What a pleasure to have found you. Courteous and caring is the name of your game. I have 3 older cars and know now where they go for anything. Thank you all so much. Looking for someone to trust???? Well give Hobson's a try.

I was having intermittent issues with my air conditioner. Their mechanics took everything apart but could no find the problem. They spent quite a bit of time working on the car, but did not charge me for this. They have always provided excellent service for my Honda Fit, which has over 212,000 miles. They send updates and photos via email. Very thorough and always professional.

I just want to give a big Thank You to everyone at Hobson’s Auto for treating me with the best possible service I could have hoped for. They are very thorough with everything. Took the time to discuss what needed to be done to my car and provided a detailed estimate of cost. If you need work done to your vehicle whether it be big or small I would definitely recommend using them. Very detail oriented and make you feel like family.

Outstanding customer service and great prices. Brought my old work truck in for a new Air Conditioning and Power Steering system. Services were done within the timeframe they gave me. Picked up the truck and the steering felt practically brand new. The AC worked better than it has in years and actually had me shivering in my truck. Ice cold AC literally. I have an older truck so it’s more of a pain to work on. They mentioned to me while working on it other small parts broke due to them just being old and worn out. Most businesses would take advantage of that and charge me even more. Not with... this place, they said it was on them! I mentioned to them that the power steering pump might be bad, but during their inspection it seemed okay. So the original quote they gave me did not include the pump. Later on while working on it, the pump turned out to be bad after all!! So they added the price of the part on to my bill, but not the hours of labor. Just an outstanding experience all around great people who actually treat your vehicle like their own. Highly recommend this business and will 100% be using them in the future.

After being quoted over 500 dollars for a new AC condenser by Autonation Toyota, I decided to take our 2016 Toyota Corolla to Hobson's Auto Repair. It was thebest decision I've made in over a decade.First, the shop just hums with productivity as you pull into the parking lot. There are no frivolous actions and no time is being wasted; this crew is flat out WORKING. A busy shop is a great sign, so I already felt comfortable.The office staff was pleasant and I received service with a smile, promptly and efficiently. The process of dropping off the car was smooth as silk. All in all, I was... there for about 5 minutes or less.Chris B. called me within 2 hours and let me know what diagnostic tests they were going to run, and the cost. My penny-pinching brain screamed, "HERE WE GO!" as I impulsively thought I've found another mechanic who's trying to run unnecessary tests in order to make more money. See, I had already had the problem diagnosed, so I wasn't too keen on paying for it again. But something told me to trust the process, and I'm so very glad that I did.Chris called me back after diagnosing the issue. He knew that I knew that the condenser was leaking and how much it should cost, and therefore how much I was willing to pay for repair. He knew that I was ready to shell out over 500 dollars on this day.But! Honest as the day is long, Hobson's Auto Repair found that there WAS no leak in the condenser. Chris assured me that they could get the needed parts (a simple cabin filter and cabin filter cover) and have it fixed before the day was over. I was shocked..To say I'm grateful for their profoundly rare honesty and professionalism would be quite an understatement. I feel like I owe a couple of weekends, sweeping floors and taking out trash, to Hobson's for their outstanding commitment to me, the customer.This could be you! Don't take your vehicle ANYWHERE but Hobson's Auto Repair. They EARNED my business from this day forward.I wish I could rate 10 stars! Bravo!read more

I brought my vehicle to them for a quote on a specific issue. The staff and owners made me feel very welcome. They inspected my entire vehicle, free of charge and took the time to talk to me about the results of the inspection and recommended repairs. They were flexible and worked with my schedule, had the vehicle done in a very reasonable amount of time (despite the vehicle giving them a bit of trouble), and the cost seemed very reasonable.This was my first experience with this business and I am very happy with the results. I highly recommend this business!I've had my car here several... times now, and the original review I wrote is still true: they are friendly, honest, professional, and do top notch work.I am very happy with Hobson's Auto Repair and highly recommend them!read more

There are a few things in life you hope everyone has, trust, integrity and honesty. Not always traits you would normally expect from an Auto Repair place, however Hobson's covers all three of of those traits with ease. I've experienced many Auto shops over time and I cannot express how super refreshing it is to not only have a place I feel totally comfortable with, Jim, Stephanie and Chris, but also feels like I'm part of the family when I'm there. The team in the office and super skilled technicians on the shop floor have always done an amazing job. We needed a ton of work and once we... discussed it with them, it was agreed and it all took place.They kept me informed, were honest, fair with prices and completed to schedule, We picked the car up next day and she felt brand new, we fell back in love with our Odyssey. Treat them all with respect, be courteous and you will be treated as part of the family too. Hobson Auto Repair will always be our goto place because of how they treated us and our vehicle’s.read more

When I tell y’all that this shop is just the best around I mean it. I wouldn’t use any other place especially being an older lady. Luckily my husband found this place before he passed. I have always been so happy when they are done and love that they have a warranty that follows me when I go out of state to visit my grandkids so I always feel confident in my vehicle. I have had an issue with their work anyway but it definitely is bonus to have.

Went here to have my Jeep serviced multiple times. They are always busy and getting people in and out as fast a possible.I have always had pleasent experiences with the son (lead mechanic) and daughter (office manager) however my interactions with the Father (owner) have been horrible.I brought my Jeep in to have Halo LEDs headlights installed. They installed them incorrectly and handed the keys back to me saying “think we did it right. But if they don’t work right, bring it back.”Of course they didn’t work right. The high beams didn’t work at all. When I opened the box of lights, they... never used the new connectors- they just plugged the new headlights into the old connectors. I brought it back and insisted they install the lights with the new connectors (which requires a little more work to splice wires, etc.). They did it correctly and the headlights worked.Brought the Jeep in the have an upstream O2 sensor replaced. Replaced it. A week later the check engine light comes on again. I couldn’t bring my Jeep in as I was getting ready to leave for military training for awhile. I get back from training, have the engine light read at an automotive store and it’s another O2 sensor. Being that the shop didn’t fix the problem, I had it checked out somewhere else. Find out the O2 sensor plug was not secured into the port, had multiple kinks in the wiring (which effects the efficiency) which led multiple wires of the connector to melt due to them sitting next to the manifold.I had the Jeep fixed at the other mechanic. Called and explained the situation to the son, Chris. He handed me off to the Dad (Jim, I think). He was SO rude. He didn’t let me explain anything, reprimanded me for bringing it to another mechanic and told me he doesn’t pay other people to do his work.If he would have done the work accurately then I wouldn’t have had the second problem.He kept interrupting me and told me I should’ve brought the vehicle in sooner. When I explained I was away for the military, he said “that’s not my problem. I’m not debating you on this.” And hung up on me. Completely unprofessional, vulgar, and rude.Just remember, my Service allows you to berate your customers like that, so you’re welcome. Lastly, I’ll eat the $200- after all your taxes pay my salary ✌️read more

The hobson"s team was great.They found some safety issues that I was not aware of. Thanks to them I feel safe driving my vehicle. They need to change their to the A team.
21:24 29 Apr 21
My car was taken to Hobson for an oil leak. The car was lifted to find the problem and work would commence when I gave the okay. I received a phone call from Jim the owner who told me that the repair would not be worth fixing.Not very often do you find professional honest mechanics and repair shops that would be so forthcoming. I wasn't charged for the visit.I highly recommend them and will from now on take every vehicle I own to HOBSON!!

Another 5 star review from me. I had an alternator go out on our F150 truck, so I called them at 1:00 pm to let them know I was dropping it off. I wasn’t expecting them to work on it the same day because I know how busy they are, but they called me at 4:15 to let me know it was ready for pick up. The cost was lower than the average online cost range.Thanks Hobsons family for working hard and helping your neighbors get back on the road safely. 😊You are the BEST!
23:28 15 Mar 21
More than satisfied with my experience with Hobson's. They go above and beyond what is necessary to get your vehicle repaired and to satisfy the customer. Just ask me about my repair on my 2992 Mustang. Charles Lambour
17:11 09 Mar 21
They're great. Family owned and very nice. Prices are competitive. Thank you Hobson's
20:39 08 Mar 21
I am always treated with respect and professional demeanor. I had an oil change and general check up for my car. When I leave Hobson's, I feel very confident that my car will give me good service.

I had an issue with an employee of Hobsons Automotive, I expressed my dissatisfaction after the repair was complete, that was on a Friday. Jim Hobson himself called me Sat morning, (They're not even open on weekends) because he said the entire issue just bothered him and he wanted to correct it,, in the end he addressed the issue refunded money and did it all in one of the most courteous fashions I ever experienced. I have no doubt that he not only cares about his reputation, but truly cares about his customers.
00:03 24 Feb 21
I called Hobson's and clearly explained my transmission issue and scheduled an appointment. I then explained the same issue again when I brought my vehicle in on Monday the 22nd. They looked over my vehicle on Tuesday the 23rd and agreed with my vehicle's problem. However, they couldn't diagnose the cause of the problem because they didn't have the equipment to do so. They then charged me $33 for not diagnosing my vehicle's problem. Everyone I dealt with was friendly, courteous and professional. Nice people! I was just surprised they charged a fee when they didn't have the equipment to... diagnose the problem. Oh well...........read more

If you looking for an trustworthy mechanic look no further. Found them and luckily I did. Thanks for saving my family and I some money.
21:04 02 Feb 21
It is very hard to find a business that can be honest with you and work with you on vehicle maintenance and repairs. When I have had issue with my vehicle, whether immediate or long-term, Hobson’s always attended to it swiftly. Lovely to have a local business one can trust!!
22:39 21 Jan 21
Extremely timely, and professional service with fair, and honest pricing. I will definitely be coming back for all automotive maintenance needs in the future.
19:52 14 Jan 21
Today was my first experience with this auto care shop. I dropped my car off with them. I have an oil leak and asked them to see if they could determine the source/problem. Much to my surprise they texted me with a full report card on my car from front to rear bumper and recommendations for any present or future repairs that might be needed. They also stated their findings regarding the oil leak, which would involve a further process (as was anticipated) to determine the actual source of the leak. There was no pressure to have any work done and there was no charge for what they did... today. Customer service was excellent. Will definitely take my care back for further service and recommend to others.read more
21:09 23 Oct 20
I found the facility to be clean, everyone friendly and professional. Chris called me and also sent a detailed message with all recommendations and after the work was done and I got in the vehicle you couldn’t even tell that someone else had been in it and it ran great! The mechanics did a great job! I wouldn’t hesitate to go to them again! Thank you Jim and all your employees, Don Simon

I brought my 2010 F150 in yesterday and they immediately looked at it. They were very honest with me about the work that had to be done and that maybe it was best not to spend that kind of money on this vehicle. They did not charge me any money for the time they spent diagnosing the problem which I greatly appreciated. My overall feel from this place is that they are honest and try their best to help their customers.
15:07 22 Oct 20
When you find Hobson's Auto repair, you have finally found an honest, fair-priced automotive repair shop. It is a family-owned and operated shop and they treat you like family too. When you drive out of their shop, you know the repair was done properly. I highly recommend them !!
17:24 09 Oct 20
I've dealt with Hobson's Auto Repair twice, and I'm very happy with their service. The last time I went there, they weren't able to replicate or find the problem (which hasn't appeared since). They kept the car over night, and checked it repeatedly. My cost wound up being zero, which I really appreciated.
17:51 26 Sep 20
I recommend Jim Hobson's Auto Repair to all of my friends and family. This is the Best auto repair shop I have ever been to! Great experience all around! Honest, Professional and always treat the customers like family. Jim and his staff are a grade "A+" team. Mike, the mechanic works tirelessly to find the problem and fix it. Extremely fair pricing. They also guarantee their repairs. This shop is really outstanding!! I want to thank Jim and entire staff for everything!
11:37 18 Sep 20
My car is in excellent condition for 31,000 miles,from 2008 to now. Thanks to Hobson.
15:35 15 Sep 20
Hobson's is the best, auto repair shop in pinellas (and in Florida...if you ask me). The Hobson family and their team are always honest and fair about what work needs done on the car you bring in, and what price you pay for the service you need done. My late father found them a few years ago, when he needed work done he couldn't do himself on his SUV, and told me about them when I needed work done on my little hatchback. As a young, single woman...I tremendously appreciate that I can put my vehicle in this shop's hands without worry. I know, from experience, how easy it is for an auto shop to... take advantage of a lack of knowledge (or perceived lack thereof) to ask higher prices or to assert that work needs done (that doesn't actually need doing). But Hobson's is never like that. Jim, his daughter, and their staff always take pride in doing only honest work and asking fair prices. Which is why I will ONLY get work done at this shop. It is also why I can truthfully tell you that you can put your vehicle safely in their hands; and know that they will take good care of both it, and you. Thank you Hobson's for being an awesome shop, and for being such good people. My dad loved coming in to you guys, and I do too 🚗🚙🛠☺️read more
22:59 14 Sep 20
Great experience. Explained in detail what they needed to do and asked if I wanted them to proceed. Appreciate knowing what is going on and exactly what they are repairing. Great staff also. Was my first time but will be returning for sure!
01:29 12 Sep 20
I highly recommend Jim Hobson’s auto repair. Their staff are very professional, from the receptionist all the way down to the technicians. I like the way they give you the report. They email you, text you, and theyre very detailed. Their prices are reasonable. The most important thing about the shop is I believe they are trustworthy.
12:20 11 Sep 20
They were very knowledgeable, and were considerate to keep me updated on my vehicle. I would definitely recommend them!
00:34 11 Sep 20
After hearing an occasional clunking from my front suspension, I brought my car to Hobson’s Auto Repair. My car was road tested and inspected on the lift but no issue was found. Jim let me know that it didn’t make sense to start replacing parts at this point. I greatly appreciate his honesty and will definitely return if the problem becomes more evident.
15:33 06 Sep 20
They did an amazing job. Very friendly and professional. I highly recommend them.

13:40 02 Sep 20
Very Professional and clean shop.I would recommend for all your car needs.
17:44 01 Sep 20
Jim was there from start to finish making sure my car got the proper care...
19:27 14 Aug 20
This company is very nice, they treat me like I have a brain. They tell me exactly what they are going to do on my vehicle every time I go there. They keep my car inside the shop if it needs to stay over night. They only charge the quoted price. Mr Hobson is very professional and nice. As is his office staff as well as the mechanics. I have used him for years and have referred many people to him. I will continue to use his garage as long as I am able to drive and own a vehicle. They take care of both of my vehicles, A Toyota Van and a Yaris.
02:24 13 Aug 20
The service was fast and much cheaper than expected. The air conditioning in my truck is working better than it has in years!
20:52 04 Aug 20
Very fast, very accommodating. My car died on the road due to a bad alternator, they recommended a great tow service and worked with me every step to get it to their shop. They did a full inspection and sent me a webpage that listed every point, that was very cool. They had all the work done by the next day afternoon. Very satisfied, I'll be returning to take care of some other issues.Update: A year or so after they replaced my battery, it started rapidly losing charge. I dropped it off at Hobson's in the morning, and by noon it was ready to go - new battery, free of charge and labor.... Thanks for the 30 month warranty!read more
23:10 28 Jul 20
The most honest car repair place I have ever been to. If you go in for an oil change they don't come & tell you there is another problem. If they do you can be sure there really is. I've been going there for years.Stopped by today & needed air in my tires. Within less than 5 minutes a gentleman came out put air in. Great folks. Wouldn't go anywhere else.
00:28 03 Jul 20
We had a great experience at Hobson's. My son's vehicle broke down they did a great job finding the parts and getting him back on the road allot faster than I expected. Very friendly and professional service. They kept me informed throughout the process. I would definitely use them in the future.
01:31 25 Jun 20
I was very impressed with the employees I dealt with. Felt very comfortable for the time I was there. I was apprised of everything they were going to do. A very pleasant experience.
16:56 18 Jun 20
I chose Hobson's because they had 4.9 in their Google reviews. This number is way off. They deserve 10 Stars. I love the family-owned business. They are all professional polite. Stephanie and Jim where super helpful. The price was great. I was even happier because it was actually turned out being $30 cheaper. They are definitely my go-to garrage.
20:35 05 Jun 20
I was referred to Hobson's by another mechanic I trust. He could fix something my guy could not. I had the best experience. The car is running great and I feel the repair price was more than fair. He was upfront and honest and I will return again! Thank you!
12:58 01 Jun 20
Great work replacing my water pump and belts. Very thorough and love that they reach out before performing work to confirm pricing and what needs to be done. Was also able to get my truck done same day. Great service and work as always!
19:51 27 May 20
Hobson’s provides the most honest and fair automotive services possible. Great work and fair prices.I had a friend take her car to Hobson’s because the car’s front end was making noise in the tire area.Hobson’s excellent technicians determined it was left side axle type issue and they recommended replacing the damaged left side component.My friend assumed both right and left side should be replaced, but the honest people at Hobson’s told her no. They told her she did not need to spend the money and the left side was all that needed replacing.That is honest. She was ready to... spend double, they stopped her.They have also looked at several used vehicles I wanted to purchase. Hobson’s refuses to take any payment for looking at the used cars, even though it allocates a space in the car bays and the time of the technicians they pay.The best I could do was bring in Pizza to say thank you to them.read more

I've been bringing my families cars to Hobson's for years and there is no other repair shop I would go to. Jim, Stephanie, and the rest of the staff are top-notch. They're caring, trustworthy people that won't beat around the bush or take advantage of your time. It gives me immense peace of mind knowing they are always here whenever I need them. I will vouch for this business any day of the week.
20:57 20 May 20
My first time going to Hobsons. I really liked how they sent me a link that showed me all the things they were doing to my car along along with an explanation. They also called me before the began the work as well to make sure I was in the know. Very patient and kind staff. I'll be going back to Hobsons for sure in the future.
19:51 11 May 20
I've been looking for an independent auto repair business for a while. I'd still been going to the dealership as they have a highly regarded service department however it wasn't very convenient and dealership prices are on the higher end. A friend recommended Hobson's and I am so glad she did. The staff is friendly and professional. I've never experienced such follow up with text, e-mail and call updates. They sent the inspection report with pictures and helped me prioritize what needed attention. I was fairly certain of the services I'd needed but appreciated the attention to detail. Chris... provided me with all costs associated with the services so there was no surprise. The services were completed promptly and with full transparency. I highly recommend their business.read more
22:01 07 May 20
I got to tell u. I have taken my car there for a lot of years. I told all my friends. About 20 to 30 what a nice man and staff they have.the price is right. Great workmanship. Very fare. And honest. Thank u Jim & staff for taking care of ur customers.
23:56 28 Apr 20
Highly recommend Hobson's if you are looking for an honest and fair mechanic. I took my Jeep up after getting the run around from another area shop. Hobson's did exactly what I was hoping for. The quote was significantly lower then the previous shop as well! Stephanie was very knowledgeable and communicated greatly on what was going on. I'm very glad I found this shop and will be returning for all of my vehicles needs. Thanks Hobson's!
20:24 27 Apr 20
They do excellent work & are very fair priced. They have great work ethics & treat their clients very well. Thank you for a job well done!Just had my car serviced at Hobsons I will not t as ke my car anywhere else they, are professional & very honest & Ho estuary goes a long way with me.

Great job Hobson’s.Just got my car back 4/16/21 from Hobson’s they went above & beyond for a part I needed a new fuel tank & fuel pump & Chrysler not not sell the parts anymore. Hobson’s checked 15 different... places & sent his staff all the way to Lentz way over Tampa somewhere to go get the part to make sure they got the right piece cause they kept sending the wrong one... who does that. That’s why I only trust hobsons & refer anyone who ask I send them there. Always honest & a job well done. Thank you Hobson’sread more
04:14 21 Apr 20
Jim the owner is honest and doesn't try to talk you into any repair you don't need. He discusses prices about the repair/part (s) along with the cost of man hours. He makes recommendations about a service you may what to have done in the future. His mechanics are very knowledgeable and do an outstanding job. I will continue to use Hobson's for my vehicle maintanence.
21:33 13 Mar 20
My Vehicle started blowing warm air I took it to Hobsons before they started any work they called and explained what was wrong and how much it was gonna cost and I was very pleased with the quality of work and their prices. Definitely recommend them to anyone!!
00:38 21 Feb 20
I am never disappointed with the service and honesty I receive from Hobson's Auto Repair! Always reliable and prompt, easily approachable about problems with car and questions. Great staff and excellent mechanics! THank you for getting me on the road again!
14:46 19 Feb 20
Look, we all want to get the best service at the best price. We also want integrity and intelligence when it comes to auto repairs. Well, that's what you get at Hobson's Auto Repair. People that know what they're doing are straight-forward and best of all fair. Hey, if you want to check them out tell'em Rick the Mini Cooper guy sent you. This is not a paid endorsement!
17:03 15 Feb 20
About 4 months ago I brought my car in to have my a/c checked because it was blowing warm air and Jim added Freon and things worked fine until the first week of Feb. 2020. I took my car back again and the Freon was low meaning there is a leak somewhere. Jim said he added a green dye to the a/c but could not locate the leak but said that it will show up when the Freon runs low and to bring car back at that time and then he can find the leak. He did all this and did not charge me. I highly recommend Hibson’s Auto Repair. Dave Firth

I've been going to Hobson's Auto repair now for the past 2 years and I wont be going any other place to repair my car. Jim & his daughter Stephanie are the best!!! So if you need new brakes/tires/or just have a tuneup on your car I recommend Hobson's Auto repair 100% give then a try you wont regret it!!
20:27 31 Jan 20
It's been a long time since I have had an auto mechanic I could recommend. The entire staff at Hobson's was first class. I can't say enough about them.
17:08 31 Jan 20
I have used other auto repair shops in my area of Largo, FL but when I 1st took my auto into Hobson's I knew that I had found the place where I was going to take it from then on. The people there are so very nice and the work done is excellent. The owner takes the time to speak to each and every customer that comes in & NO WHERE else have I felt that they really care about why I'm there & getting the work completed. I highly recommend Hobson's!!!!1-29-2020 My car was broke down & totally undrivable. Had to have it towed to Hobson's. The owner, Jim, was out looking under the hood... with in 5 minutes & told me exactly what needed to be done. It was fixed the very next day (it was close to 3 when it arrived) & has never driven as good as it does now. The prices are great for the quality of work done. I would like to thank Stephanie (general manager), Chris ( service manager) & Jim (owner) they were all very helpful, very polite & a pleasure working with!!read more

21:19 27 Jan 20
It took me years to find an auto repair shop that I trust. Hobson's owner and employees are honest and dependable. If they can save you money, they will make the recommendation. They are always fair priced and a pleasure to do business with.
15:58 24 Jan 20
I have an older Honda that has needed it's share of repairs. I trust Hobsons to fix it for a fair price. I know they will do it and I wont be overcharged.
03:05 09 Jan 20
Hobson’s was referred to me by a close friend. My ‘78 Jeep CJ7 is my pride and joy. Jim Hobson and staff were as good as I could have asked for to handle my engine repairs.

As I learned last year I had excellent service above and beyond. I really appreciate the integrity and the care given. Also the interaction of the owner and the people who work there, they are genuine down to earth people. I recommend them to everyody I know and anyone I hear talking about their vehicle needing to have service or repair work. Sincerely Shirley

Jim is always the consummate professional. He takes the time to personally show me what they find and how that may impact my driving experience. He advises me when it is appropriate to make a repair and when I can wait for the right time. I used to live within walking distance but now drive all the way across Pinellas County to get to his shop. It is worth every mile to deal with someone of Jim's integrity.

Hobson's Auto Repair is honest and they treat they customers with integrity and truth. They have done big repairs on my car and they are one of the best mechanic shops that I've been to. They deserve 10 stars if you want honesty and your repairs on your car done right this is the place to come to.

I highly recommend this shop! Very honest, extremely courteous, fairly priced and dependable. They are great at communicating and providing updates or will return calls if you leave a message. During my last experience, they truly knocked their service out of the park! I had my vehicle towed to Hobson’s from another shop to get a second opinion as I was not in a good position to spend over $1100-$1200 as quoted by that first place (a place that I had driven my car to just days before to drop off and get looked at). The vehicle was re-diagnosed the same day it arrived to Hobson’s & I was... advised that it would cost under $400 to fix the issue! Turns out the first shop was likely being dishonest and trying to pull the wool over my eyes! Hobson’s pointed out that a wire had been disconnected at the first shop which was why my car wouldn’t start after I had driven it into that first shop! It appears the first place wanted to make my car non-driveable so I would leave it there for a false, expensive repair it didn’t need! Anyhow, the car is now in great shape & all issues have been resolved thanks to the awesome staff at Hobson’s. These guys are a serious throwback to the old days when business treated their clients with dignity, respect & honesty. Great place from top to bottom and again, highly recommended! A heartfelt thank you to everyone at Hobson’s from your newer life-long customer!!read more
