Honest-1 Auto Care opens this month at 5936 Portland Ave. S. in the retiring Mike’s Advanced Auto location.
Randy Rada’s second full-service auto shop is not too far from his South Minneapolis home. Honest-1 is certified through the company’s ESA (Environmentally Sustainable Actions) Program.* Rada said the business carries an eco-friendly fluid line, and recycles more than the average auto center.
“We go to the Nth degree, we recycle everything,” Rada said.
The shop offers an Internet cafe with free coffee, snacks and a community computer.
Any $25 expenditure automatically enrolls customers in a yearlong roadside assistance program.
Rada said his shop offers “the best area warranty,” good for three years and 36,000 miles on parts and labor.
“We try to go above and beyond,” he said. “We want to do everything we can to be part of the neighborhood.”
