George Maajoun wants to change the attitude of customers who dread taking their car in for an oil change or repairs.
As president of the newly opened Honest-1 Auto Care in Carrollwood, his goal is to earn the trust and confidence of his customers.
"You have to really look at it from the customer's perspective, what they really want," Maajoun said.
Honest-1 Auto Care is a full-service preventive maintenance and automotive repair center that promises to provide true and accurate estimates of all repairs and recommended services. They offer a nationwide three-year, 36,000-mile warranty, and a free comprehensive vehicle inspection whenever a vehicle is in for service.
A complimentary shuttle service is provided.
While their car is being serviced, customers can wait in the clean and comfortable lobby, complete with a gourmet coffee station and Internet cafe. The lobby is family friendly and has a kids' play area.
Honest-1 Auto Care has more than 60 locations throughout the United States, but this is the first location on Florida's west coast. It is the only full-service auto repair and maintenance franchise chain that is 100 percent ESA Certified Eco-Friendly.
Honest-1 Auto Care is located at 14318 N Dale Mabry Highway. It is open from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday-Friday, 7 a.m. to 4 p.m., Saturday and is closed on Sunday. For more information, call (813) 534-4821, or visit honest1carrollwood.com.
