The first time I went to Dave's I was extremely pleased how well they performed the repairs but also with the atmosphere. How friendly and concerned they were! Have ALWAYS had repairs done when they said, and sometimes completed before!! I have recommended them to numerous people, even handed out cards/phone # to customers who shop at my daughter's store.

Dave, Jim and Duane are good guys.

I got my oil changed and thought I needed back brakes. They could have easily charged me for the brakes I thought I needed. Instead, they were honest with me and let me know what the rubbing sound was. Very honest people.

by - Verified Customer January 25, 2017

I went in for an oil change. They were kind in providing me information about repairs that needed to be done. However, the cost was considerably more expensive than other shops where I received quotes. They were going to charge me $45 for my rear license plate light replacement. I went down the street to Autozone, paid 6 dollars for lights and replaced them myself. Overall very nice, great customer service, but expensive.

Rear differential VTM-4 change.

by - Verified Customer December 29, 2016

They told me I had a 'slight power steering problem' with my car, and that they could look at it after they made the initial repair. After I paid $200 to have a tube fixed, they decided to let me know I needed another $1900 repair to make it driveable. So I threw away $200 just for them to tell me I needed to scrap my car. Unbelievable.

by - Verified Customer December 29, 2016

Everyone is professional and honest. In my experience they give it to you straight no pressure or exaggerations about your vehicle. Love them.

The employees were very kind and very helpful. They explained things extremely well to me and my boyfriend. I had to work during the hours of operation but was able to drop off my car the day before. With the help of my boyfriend, got my car back the next day. They finished everything more quickly than I had hoped, found out the true problems my car had, and used the parts I supplied them with. They were all fantastic.

by - Verified Customer December 16, 2016

Always very efficient, helpful and most accommodating. Thanks!

I've known Dave for over 30 years and have never been disappointed in his work.

Maintenance work done in a timely amount of time. Courteous and knowledgeable staff.

by - Verified Customer December 12, 2016

After visiting another shop, who acted like they didn't want to fix my car, I called Dave's shop and told them what I thought was the problem. I brought in my car at 7:30 AM and it was repaired by 10:30 AM. It has worked well ever since.
