I just wasn't that satisfied. Kept checking around, if I went somewhere else it would have been cheaper.

The service is friendly, and the location is conveinent. But the prices are high, and I have had issues where I have paid for the work to be done and after a day or two had to come back to the shop because a detail was overlooked (parts not being fastened properly, etc...)

Most people decide where to go on their own. I recommend they meet Dave and decide for themselves.

I have and will continue to recommend Dave's Lamont Street Auto Repair because of the quality of work, the knowledge of the staff and the customer service. Dave and Dennis are good at deciphering my explanation of problems with my car and no matter when I show up with a 'quick question' they are friendly and eager to help.

Dave does good work, never misdiagnoses anything, and at times has unearthed some rather rare problems. He keeps you posted right up front as to how much his service will cost.

We've been going to Dave's for years, and he's always seen us right. You know, he always tells you what needs to be done, what needs to be done immediately, you're in charge of the decisions about the work to get done. The quality of the work is good.

I would NOT recommend anyone to use this shop. I feel I was mislead. I was charged more then my estimate and the owner claimed he had received authorization. He never did! Had to call in the police to get car back. The repair was a 1 hour job and car was not returned for over 30 hours. I was charged double the estimate. Stay away from this one folks.

Here is the real story that the customer is not telling. Jan. 31,2011 Craig Baresch came into office & asked how much to replace a cv axle. Dave the owner of the shop gave him an estimate in writing labor $110.00, cv axle $177.20, sales tax $15.51, total $302.71 to replace ONE CV AXLE. On Feb 3,2011 8:26am customer dropped off car for repairs. He signed a work order that states "check possible cv joint makes clunking noise on turns" "Axle Shaft, Replace Front Axle, Axle Assembly, One Side, Labor $110.00, Axle Assembly $177.20, sales tax 15.51, total $302.71 for ONE AXLE. I then explained to customer that we needed to check both axles to determine if he needed the left or right cv axle, I would call him as soon as we inspected the axles on the car. At 9:43am I called customer & explained to him that both axles were bad, that replacing one axle wasn't going to solve the clunking noise. Both axles outer cv boots were badly torn & both outer cv joints were bad. The customer understood at that time that both axles were bad & authorized replacement of both axles. I told him the cost would be $302.71 X2=$605.42 & that he would receive a discount of $50.00 for being a AAA Auto Club Member, which would bring the estimate to $555.42 for BOTH axles. The customer stopped by early before repairs were completed to pay his bill. When I told him the total amount of $560.99 he became irate & claimed he never authorized that amount of money. A long conversation unsued, me re-explaning the phone call at 9:43am. I explained to the customer that he authorized the work & would be responsible to pay the bill in order to get his car back. I halted the work on the car until the situation was resolved. Many hours of the customer demanding this & that unsued. Finally at 4:30pm the customer agreed with the Police present that he would pay the bill. We then explained to him that we close at 5pm & that his car would not be finished until 11am to 12noon the next day. This gave us time to finish the installation of the new axles, test drive & double check our work to make sure everything was ok. This is one customer that we will never allow to bring any vehicle in for repairs ever again. We try extremely hard to make sure every customer is happy & that our work is done correctly & honestly. However I have learned that no matter how hard you try their will always be a customer like this one every now & then.
