They use the least expensive housebrand oil they can purchase....Good oil is a lot less expensive than failed parts

between heating and air conditioning on my truck i paid him $800 at first for him to tell me the acuator switch that moves the plate to change it from hot to cold broke another $400 then it would not work right i was in there 16 times in 2 wks for him to keep filling it up with freyon finally he got pissed and said it was costing him money to keep putting freyon in it, so he replaced the ac compressor again....only to try to charge me again, never again would i waste my time there, as far as some person saying they are the most honest place ever, if thats the case let me send you my receipts and tell me they sound right,you know the ones that say replacement of ac compressor then another bill in less than a year saying the same thing

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.
This place is crazy he had my car for 9 months until i had to come get it with a tow truck becasue they obviously didnt know what they were doing! then says hes keeping my motor that he took out of my car and never rebuilt!
Hanson is bad news

Just pulled my vehicle out of there. Had it for three weeks and nothing got done. Kept promising next day and nothing. Word on the street is he is not paying his suppliers and an inside source at the LPD says they are watching him closely for drug activity. I didn't want to chance my car getting caught up in that. Took it to the new place up the street. Fast, friendly service at a reasonable price.

These are not jealous competitors talking....look Hanson up on the county website, public information. He is a criminal and has no respect for the law, why would he respect a customer? The lawsuits are starting to pile up. It's only a matter of time......

Hanson kept my truck for 5 weeks. Everytime I phoned he swore it would be ready tomorrow, but then suddenly he did not have the right parts because his suppliers sent the wrong stuff, so this went on and on. Finally I went and repossessed my truck and found it had never been touched, except for an ABS light that wasn't on when I dropped it off and a nice dent under the tailight that exposed quite a bit of metal.
Everyone in the state seems to know about this guy, and what they know is not pretty. If he did not want to do the job he should've said so but he chose to tie my vehicle up for all that time... so why did he keep a expensive truck for 5wks clogging up his lot if he wasn't going to work on it? Hmmmmm....

I was a loyal customer to this shop for years and I got to admitt the place now, is just a total dump, I really think Erik is on drugs , he told me sooo many stories about my vehicle, kept telling me to check back with him tomorrow around lunch time, then when I call it's other excuses or the parts didn't come in or the sent the wrong fkn one blah blah call me at the end of the day, same excuse .. I call the next day same shit then I finally go up there and my vehicle is in the back of his massage junk and clunker yard I waited over a hour just to get fed more BS and get lied to in my face, I can officially call him a lier because I called him and listen to him tell me he had my car inside the shop and the guys had it tore apart , while I was looking at it buried outside the shop along with other vehicles. About 3 wks later it was finished and I was happy, just to drive it for 3 days and to breakdown again . I'm never going back to him again!!!!! He needs help bad, they were a good shop now it's come to an end

You clearly haven't had real work done to your car by them, anyone who's posted anything good about these clowns clearly must be am employee of them trying to bring light back to this black hole company I wouldn't bring my car back to Erik if he told me he'd do the work for free!!!!

Hansons is the worst place you would want to take your car My small motor home was there for two weeks and came out not much better than when I brought it in and hus mechanics dont know what they are doing. I had to bring my motor home to another place to get it fixed after hanson charged me over1500 dollars Dont bring your car to hansons. Auto masters did in 3 hours what hansons could not do in two weeks

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.
I was told by a coworker, Jim Smith of Lady Lake, that this guy was honest and a great mechanic. I took my 65 Mustang fastback to him for a simple a/c leak. He stole my original a/c compressor, installed a rebuilt one charged me lots of $$$ and the problem was NEVER FIXED. This guy is a piece of crap. His MECHANICS ARE ALL DRUGGIES. Should be run out of town! Thanks Jim Smith of Lady Lake! How do SOB's like this stay in business?

Hanson had our car and money for six months. He keep promising the car would be ready every Friday and every Friday he came up with a new excuse. Finally we told him that we need our car and monies back. He said the car is ready and he just need the balance. well when we went to pay and pick up the car he told my husband the car was not ready. we had to call the police to come to the scene. We got our car removed from his shop but we are still waiting on our monies. He told us his wife will refund us went she come back on March 26. She still out so we are going to had to take to crook to court to get our monies back.

It only took me one time to know they wete trying tp scam me. Gave me an very high eztimate for something that wasnt even needed. They did no work on my car I was smart enough tp get a second opinion by an honest shop. Quick, cheap fix and I was on the road again. CONSUMERS BEWARE!
never again

Is this place even still open?

My moms car was there for 8 months! She took it in to get some valves replaced and 8 months later got it back in worse condition than it was. Oil and Grease finger prints all on the inside. Tires rotted out from sitting on his lot in the sun. No oil. Also,$800 more than the original estimate.

BTW, My Boyfriend at the time worked there. Wasn't certified but was a good mechanic. You guys are right, not only is he on drugs... he is also dealing them through his business.

This guy is a thief! I took my truck in to have my air conditioning condenser replaced, my exhaust system fixed and my tires rotated and balanced. He charged me for all new parts, but he only repaired my condenser with used parts, charged me for fixing my exhaust system that is still not fixed and still has a leek, and my truck shakes because the tires are not balanced right. when I asked him to fix it right he wanted to charge me again even though he says his work is guaranteed. If you don't want your vehicle messed up and you don't want to be ripped off, then stay clear of Hansons. He is a crook!
