Great experience every time. We started going to Mark several years ago upon the recommendation of a friend, and haven't turned back. Finding a local service professional who works on foreign cars had been a struggle, but Mark was able to figure out what several other shops couldn't. I wish I had gone to him first. He always takes the time to explain to me exactly what needs to be done (and why) before he fixes it, and then again after he fixes it. There's always some level of stress and anticipation knowing that your vehicle is in need of service or repairs. I didn't realize how much having a service professional I could trust would quell that. I'm thrilled to have found someone who makes the experience more streamlined and less stressful. He's knowledgable, highly personable, and most importantly, his work is top-notch. I highly recommend Mark DeHond for anyone looking for a trusted, honest mechanic who does the job quickly, professionally, and at a very fair price.

The owner of Dehond is a nice man and you can tell he cares about people. NOW saying that. He ALWAYS finds something wrong with your vehicle. It feel like he is running you for money at all times.His secretary is incompetent. I showed up to the office to purchase a tire and schedule a time for it to be put on. she said she'd call me back with a time. I waited 3 days and left VM's with no response. Had to go in on a weekend and set it up with the owner myself.Will be finding a new Bike Mechanic.

I went to mark because I saw him on google maps as the closest to where I live and it's a registered bike shop, love his expertise and he always gets me the parts I need for my bike for cheap and they always ship fast for free. He seems like a nice guy and is helpful, I do not agree with the comment saying he broke the chrome on the guys tire because no matter how you use I tire iron there's no way to avoid scratching the rim. Definaly worth going back to for parts and service

I have used Mark for years. He is always very professional. He does great work and has never "created" issues. If he points something out that needs attention he will explain why, then you can make the decision on whether you want it fixed. A+ rating in my book.
Tips & Advices
Among the common scams pulled are needless repairs, where a garage charges you for work that isn't necessary. Another popular one is attracting customers through a cheap oil change or tire pressure check. Then, when you your car is being repaired, they give you a long list of other corrections they'd like to make, therefore boosting the total cost of your bill. The best way to combat these types of problems is getting a written estimate before work is done so you can see how much repairs are expected to cost. If the final bill is higher than the estimate projected, ask to specifically see the work. Make sure information is put in writing as well. If a problem remains, you can have proof that work was not done to your satisfaction.
For winter driving, features such as the defroster, heater and exhaust system are paramount. Look in your owner's manual for specific directions on how features should be checked and repaired. Many newer cars have a cabin air filter that can be replaced when needed, allowing warm air to continue to flow in. Also, check tires before winter driving, as they need to be at the proper pressure to perform well on snow and ice.
In the spring and summer, you want to be sure your air conditioner and cooling systems work correctly. Given the high temperatures, overheating is a common problem. Look over the system by ensuring there is enough coolant available. If it needs to be refilled, it is best to open the hood and add more to the car before it gets too warm out. Also, clean out fan ducts and other ventilation sources necessary for summertime driving.
Some fixes to your car can be done without paying a specialist. Issues like replacing oil and air filters are relatively simple, with instructions provided in the owner's manual on how to make these changes. The same goes for replacing broken windshield wipers or burnt-out headlights. Such issues should be repaired quickly to guarantee safety, but don't require a visit to a garage.
Yes. Not every type of auto repair work needs to be done by a certified mechanic. You can fix some of a vehicle's issues just by paying attention to how the automobile is running and having a basic understanding of auto repair. Look over the ways weather may impact your car and what preventative measures you can take to avoid having to take it into the shop.
