What Our Customer's Are Saying
"Highly recommend RIX Automotive!! We had some routine maintenance services performed on our Honda Pilot. We dropped it off last night, and he delivered it back to us this morning after the work was complete. He takes photos of the work he is doing for you to see, which is helpful.
Also, his prices are better than going to the Honda Dealer. We will definitely be using him for future needs with our Honda!"

"Rick is simply put, the automotive technician you wish you knew and had your whole life. Not only is Rick professional and knowledgeable, he is honest. He will tell you from A to Z what needs to be fixed, the risks posed if you dont fix it, and never will push a transaction on you if you decide not to fix the issue. Have had multiple cars of mine and family's be worked on by Rick. Do not hesitate to reach out to Rick!"

"Rick is the best, always takes great care of our vehicles, and he provides better pricing and service than the dealer!"
Mike W. (Facebook)
"Rick completed some recent service for me on my 2008 Accord and saved me hundreds from the dealership quote. He is more thorough and professional than any dealership or repair shop I have been to before. The work was completed exactly as described and on time as promised. I look forward to coming back in the future!"

"Rick is great to work with! He is professional and very trustworthy. He does a great job of informing of what work he recommends to have done, why it should be done, and letting me know how much it will cost prior to him doing the work. We have been taking our cars to him for years and highly recommend him!"

"Honest as the day is long. Rick performed a timing belt and water pump repair for a Acura of mine. His knowledge of Honda/Acura is second to none. Turn around time was very quick and there was no question the job was done right. I wouldn’t hesitate for a moment to use his services again. 100% recommended."

"Rick really helped me out of a jam. He diagnosed and fixed the brake issue on my Lexus ES350 making the car safe to drive again. I highly recommend RIX Automotive for all your automotive needs!"

Chris W. (Facebook)
"Rick is not only a great mechanic, but honest and fair. He explains the problems he finds thoroughly and offers solutions. I’d highly recommend him."
Linda L. (Facebook)
"I had a simple set of fluid services and diagnostic of a couple DTCs performed by RIX. Here’s what you need to know... this guy is a Master Technician in the truest form of the title. Total knowledge of Honda/Acura products, thoughtful handling of your prized possession, 100% clarity and transparency in service, great explanation of your cars health, and never an up-sell or recommendation beyond what’s truly needed EVEN if it means he makes a little less money while your cars with him. I fear handing my keys to anyone, I have found a Honda/Acura mechanic that I feel is much better and more considerate of my car than I am at RIX. Excellent!"
