Hansen's Auto
I managed to get my van into Hansen's after a long trip back from Boulder, CO, and i'm SO glad it's there! I had trouble starting it in Boulder and a dealer put in a new starter, but on the way back to Madison it kept stalling out, and sometimes not restarting. After a LONG trip back to Maidson I dropped it off in the lot on Memorial Day weekend, with no appointment. They took the time to repeatedly start it until it performed all it's symptoms, and much to my relief i'm on the way to having it reliable again. I've been taking my cars to Hansen's since needing an engine rebuilt about 10 years ago, and I can't possibly say enough about the expertise, professionalism, kindness and generosity of the folks at Hansen's Auto. They've taken such good care of me that I would never consider going to another mechanic. For everything from oil changes to major engine work, they have not only done the best for my car, but also for me.They've carefully explained the work, and have been so patient with my lack of understanding of cars. They've often been able to tell me what to do and save an expensive repair or tow, and they've averted many larger problems for me by helping me to look ahead and take care of things before they need major work. Every time I or my daughter has needed to buy a car they've helped us generously with advice.These folks know cars inside and out and they're also some of the kindest and most honorable business people you will ever be lucky enough to meet!

I first heard about Hansen's Auto Repair in my previous work life, as a sales rep for an engine and transmission company. Hansen's was a customer of mine and, in dealing with them, I got to know their business, just as I got to know other auto shops in southwestern Wisconsin. Hansen's Auto Repair is the one I chose to send my cars to personally because I knew exactly how they dealt with people. I knew that they had a great deal of integrity in establishing what their customers' needs are and servicing those needs fully. Building trust with a client is so important, and Hansen's can be trusted implicitly. They tell me what needs to be done with my vehicle and they offer different options for me to consider. I appreciate that they always let me know before they do any repairs, so there are no surprises when the work is completed.Hansen's has worked on all of my vehicles, from my FORD F-150 pick-up to my BMW, which was a complicated foreign repair. They have serviced them both very well.You can count on Hansen's to get it right. Everything is done properly the first time. They are priced fairly as well and, from a value standpoint, they cannot be touched. Bob Frick

I have been using Hansen's Auto Repair for 43 years now because of their high-quality work. They never make mistakes, their rates are reasonable, and they are easy to work with and to schedule appointments with. Hansen's is considered Madison's leading independent garage. I have been way more than satisfied with the work they have done for me over the years. One year, when I called them on Christmas Eve, Don came out to my home in a blizzard to fix my car. He was able to fix it in the driveway so that I could get to my parents' house in Arkansas for the holiday. Another time, I had a 1955 Buick convertible that I was planning to drive my daughter in to her wedding. The night before the wedding, it died by the side of the road and, again, I called Hansen's. Don was able to get a parts dealer to open up that night so that he could get what he needed to fix it. He also, stayed at the shop until 8 p.m., waiting for me to pick it up.Don's son, John, who runs the shop now, is just as good as his father. I have already recommended Hansen's more than 30 times. They are first-rate in every respect. Bob and Carol Olsen

Extremely honest and reputable, I've been going there for years and tell people that Ihighly recommend Jon and his entire team. Just today 5/14/13 I had a speed controlsensor go belly up. They were booked solid for the day, but Jon managed to squeezeme in. Just another example of "OutStanding" SERVICE!

ordered my parts on Saturday. Recevied an email quickly, their warehouse was closed for the weekends so my part was pulled on Monday. I had received 2 emails keeping me up to date, So yes, they do care and stay in touch. I received my part Wednesday just as scheduled. I will be doing business with them again.

I reached out to ARA of Madison this morning for a vehicle check-up. They are very direct and thorough. Casey went through the car history and also explained when service was needed and why. I would highly recommend this company. Deborah Dosher

These guys are honest & friendly. I received a call to let me know when my car was done. I had some things to do that day, and they had it done at the time I had requested. Would highly recommend them to anyone.
Tips & Advices
Depending on the part and its overall quality, a good amount of money can be saved by purchasing aftermarket parts versus OEM parts. But aftermarket parts that are low in price might also be lower in quality and could do more harm than good to your car, or they may need to be replaced more frequently than a more expensive counterpart. This could lead to saving some money in the short term, but spending more than anticipated in the long term.
The type of tires being purchased is the most significant determinant of their price. SUV tires are more costly than average car tires. And high-performance tires are more costly than economy grade tires. On average, standard tires for an average-sized vehicle are around $100 per tire. Standard tires for an SUV are around $150 and pick-up truck tires are about $200 on average. Some dealers offer discounts if purchasing more than one tire.
Car inspections typically take about an hour. However the wait time can be longer depending on how busy the shop is. Call ahead for an appointment to avoid long wait times.
Depending on the manufacturer, certain aftermarket parts can be just as reliable as Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) parts. But one item within a vehicle, like oil filters for instance, could have multiple manufacturers and there could be inconsistencies in quality among them.
Costs of replacing a windshield can vary greatly depending on a variety of factors:
  • Vehicle make and model
  • How much of the cost insurance will cover
  • Whether the windshield installers come to your location or you bring the vehicle to them
  • Standard service costs of the windshield installers
Generally, newer and higher-end vehicles cost more to have their windshields replaced because certain manufacturers use modified or proprietary glass types.
