The boys at the shop were very helpful! Came and picked up my vehicle, serviced it, called and updated me, AND dropped it off. Exceptional communication and very professional. I’ll definitely return!

I'm new to the Ankeny area and needed some AC work done on my Jeep. I ran across an ad for an AC check from Honest Wrenches and went to talk to them. They got me in and fixed the same day plus did an inspection for things to watch for in the future. I'm very pleased and will probably go back.

Dennis, Thank you so much for the review! Glad you chose us to service the A/C system on your Jeep!
Staff is very easy to talk to and they really take the time to go through diagnostics with you. HW is by far the most thorough shop I've ever been to and I appreciate their complete inspections and diagnoses. They offer a loaner vehicle if yours has to stay at the shop, and they keep you informed of progress made every step of the way.

Courteous service and prompt repairs. They are always up front about what is important and what needs to be done. They have a customer for life in me.

Very pleased with my new tires and the attention they give when reviewing your vehicle. Found out that other mechanics had tortured my lug-nuts and they were in bad shape. They also provide a great waiting area as I was able to sit and work on the WiFi while my SUV was worked on.

I drive all the way from Dallas Center because I trust these guys with our cars. Have truthfully been looking for a closer mechanic since we moved from Ankeny three years ago—haven't found one yet, so we make the drive to HW!
