This is the honest mechanic you've been looking for all your life. I was given quotes of over $1000 for hood seals at two other places. Hawthorne Auto installed my new hood seals for $255 including labor. I was told struts and shocks would be over $2000 and Hawthorne Auto replaced them for less than $1300. I had a tinted back window that had blistered and buckled. Other places told me to take it to window replacement shops, where it would cost upwards of $500. Hawthorne Auto explained I could remove the tint myself with soapy water for no money at all, and it worked. I am grateful to Hawthorne Auto for their honesty, their good work, and their respect for my financial limits.
