Rip off. Scammer. Overcharges but guarantees you its a great deal. Parts are resold as new when there old of other vehicles. Uses cheap oil. Mechanics working for him are brain dead and unbbelievably rude. Sat there for 6 hours why him and his staff raced RC cars and four Wheeler while noone was working on my vehicle. Outrageous labor charges. Avoid at all costs.

We've taken our truck to Hanson's for a couple of customization jobs. We bought our own lowering kit online and had his people install it, no problems afterwards. Also had them remove the hitch bracket so we could put a roll pan in place of the bumper. Again, no problems.

My advice: If you have an issue with the type of oil they use in your vehicle, bring your own. Normally on all the oil change "specials" these places run, they will use regular oil even if you usually use synthetic or synthetic blend. You have to specify the type of oil you want them to use OR like I said, bring your own. Either way, it will probably cost you a little more. Trust me, my husband had that issue with his car once here, not Hanson's, another place. They put regular oil in a V8 Firebird Formula, almost killed the engine, especially after all we had been using is full synthetic.

Has no idea how to work on deisel motors. Had my truck for almost 3 months with new promises every day. Always excuse after excuse......thousands of dollars later still couldn't get it right. Had to use another shop to repair everything they "upgraded". I will never use hansens for anything again!

Hack jop specials ! lies on top of lies poor service poor attitudes, I won't even go back for a oil change, that buisness won't be there long, not with sevice and lies like that! The use of old parts repeated returns for the same repairs and of course it's always something else wrong, and the bills way more then the quated price.Not a proffesianal buisness, not some where you want to trust with your vechile .

Hanson's are crooks. They did a tuneup on my Subaru, changed out some wiring, etc. Turned out they did not change the sparkplugs, the wiring was defective, and the work was shoddy. Talking to an Attorney for some advice. I have the parts and am thinking about suing them...stay the hell away from these jackasses.

I needed a leveling kit installed,Rims,tires,step bars,and a spray in bedliner.Everything that was done to my truck looked great ! All were new and no body can touch his prices! Any place that i've taken a vehicle has made me wait. To me the wait was worth the money I saved.The spray in bedliner looks awesome!! My new exhaust system is next! And I'm getting a great deal!

I can comment on Hansons
I am a Quad ASE Master with L-1 and L-2 Certifications
Hanson is the type of repair shop that gives all mechanics a bad rep
He is a crook
99% of his mechanics couldn't clean my tools and are reporting to thier parole officer.
He had my daughter car for months, said it needed a new engine
When the work was done He demanded twice the original price.
I checked the engine numbers he put in against the original numbers from the factory
Guess what He never install an engine at all. Well that is in the State Attorneys hands now.
Just waiting to see Mr Hanson in court

been using hanson's from day one. NEVER a problem.
They go past the point of proffessionals to look out for clientel. Bad reviews here sound like B.S from other garages that only wish they had half the business this guy has. For Mr. a.s,e mechanic, why did'nt fix your own daughters car? Dead beat Dad?
These guys do it all. Will always reccomend. Its a shame the haters are able to post out of pure jealosy. the old saying is, if you want to be the man, then beat the man.

Answer to Leedsburg1 AKA Mr Hanson
I stopped turning wrenches years ago, I keep my certs curent just incase. I live in New York and work as a DOT Inspector, Tough to repair a car that is 2000 miles away.
I see persons like you every day, just after the dollar. Sooner or later they run into some one that will not take it,and end up the subject of a criminal investigation, or civil law suit. Then the court will hopefuly put hansons and others like him out of business

I use to only go to him. Now I'm sick of him. He's had my mother in laws car for over a month and ALWAYS says it'll be done "tomorrow" and ALWAYS claims he'll call back. It's like he's on drugs now or something. After we get the car back we will NEVER go back to him EVER again. PURE LAZY ASS!

oh and get this ^^ I call to check on it and he has the nerve to snap at me and continue an attitude because I called the phone too much. wouldn't you if you wanted some answers after MANY broken promises? Yea, I'll never go to him again. this place has gone down hill. not to mention the rude snappy attitude the office lady has 24/7 that many ppl are sick of. I don't see them around in another 4-5 years.
