Just Brakes Just Broke My Car! – After taking my car to just brakes for their $89 brake job, I got an estimate for $700. I wanted a second opinion, and they told me I would have to tow it stating the brakes were too bad. I towed it to Hopewell and they fixed my brakes for $150, and gave me a warranty. They are the only people that will touch my car from now on.
Five Stars! The Best Guys I Have Ever Used!!! – I called these based on the excelent reviews when I my car died at my friends house while in town visiting them. They brought me back to my friends house and by the time I got back, they were already calling me with the problem. I gave them the go ahead and my car was ready before lunch. The bill was less than what they quoted, and I got a three year warranty on my alternator. They even called me the next day to check on me and make sure I got to Savannah alright! These guys really care, and my friends said they are going to start using them too. I wish we had a shop like that in Savannah.
Very Disappointed! – No Stars- if it were an option.
Took My Auto in for repair. I had already had the engine light error codes pulled. I explained to the Receptionist what had been done to the auto just before bringing it into Hopewell Auto. I received a call a few hours later that it needed about an hour of Diagnostics. I didn't think this was necessary, but finally agreed. I was later called with an estimate of $1049.00. When I asked what would be done for the estimated amount, I was told that everything I had already done before was needed again. Even that my fuel filter was real dirty. It was changed last month!
I was also told that my engine was dirty and needed a complete system cleaning., This was also done 3 weeks prior.
Other problems that I asked to be checked were not even addressed in the estimate of over $1,000.
Needless to say, I declined the estimate and the repair.
So, I payed The $ 80 diagnostic fee. I had to return that night to drive the auto home. As I was driving the auto it was making noises and smoking badly. It sounded much worse than when I drove it to their shop. The mechanic had removed and lost a hose. The large hose that connects the throttle to the air filter was just laying on top of the engine. oil was spewing from the valve cover onto the manifold causing it to smoke. I had to pull over twice on the way home to reconnect the parts these "Mechanics" left disconnected and lost. When I called back the next morning to tell them what had happened, they said I needed to drive it back in! I barely made it home....I told them I would not do anymore damage to my engine than they had already caused. The manager was supposed to call me about two weeks ago. No call or message was ever received I do not Recommend this Business to anyone.
Hopewell Tire & Auto rates A+ with my UGA student – My son called me last week saying his A/C had stopped working. He recently moved to the Athens area and is a student at UGA. I had hoped he would find an honest and reliable auto shop in Athens before he needed one, but he needed one NOW. I looked online and found many good references for Hopewell Tire and Auto. I emailed Luke and within a very short time he answered my email. My son took his vehicle in and within a couple of hours they had his air conditioner working again. David said the waiting room was comfortable and he did a bit of studying while waiting, he said there were drinks for the customers, everything was neat and clean and the people there were very nice. He found an honest and reliable tire and auto shop in Athens. It’s Hopewell Tire and Auto. I would recommend them to anyone needing repair, service or tires.
The Honest Auto Shop In Athens!!!!!!! – I have been going to Hopewell's since I was a (broke) student. They have always been honest and up front with my old car. They talked to my parents when major suff was needed so they felt good with Hopewell's too. I have been using them even when I bought a new car. I can not imagine going any where else but Luke's shop! Georgia the lab is nice too!
Good placew to go! – This is the best place I have been to. They take care of you, and being a college student, don't rip you off. My dorm roomate told me about them when I was a freshman, and I am a senior now. I hope to find another shop as good as this when I move from Athens! They have wi-fi in the waiting room too, and It's actually clean!
