I'm new in town, and we need our car worked on. Dealerships are notorious for over pricing (so I'd rather not go to the dealer), and I've run into many dishonest car repair people.

Does anyone know of a mechanic place around Henderson that is honest, good, and fairly priced? Please help!

I have had Hammond Automotive work on my car and they did a great job. He will come to you and I have found him to be honest. Not only that, automotive shops mark up the price of parts to over twice what they pay for them while Hammond lets you buy your own parts.

He does all the repairs for my daughter and her half sister, plus my ex MIL. I have a Honda that I only let Wally's Honda work on, and who I would refer you to if you had a Honda. I also have a Saturn that I only take to the dealer on Sahara. But for any other type car I'd go to Phil.
