Customer Reviews

by - Verified Customer October 04, 2016

Very good customer service overall. However, I came in for a 10,000 mile synthetic oil change and I got a 5k oil change. Not a big deal but really would have like to have what I came in for. I will continue to visit the shop for my mechanical needs. I feel that Dave's is one of the last few honest car repair businesses I know of.

by - Verified Customer September 30, 2016

I had an understanding of what was needed in advance, but they were thorough, able to get the vehicle in quickly, and provide a great warranty on their work.

by - Verified Customer September 28, 2016

They are just amazing!!!

I asked for them to check something specific and they ended up checking the whole car and charging me for it.

by - Verified Customer July 07, 2016

A reliable place.

by June 29, 2016

What keeps me returning is that I get a ride to and from my home when I need service. However, I am not pleased with the quality of the service.

by - Verified Customer June 23, 2016

Handled the fairly-minor repair and service professionally. We have been customers for years. Dave's has capably repaired and serviced our cars from our older GMC to our Cadillac.

Good service, timely, and at a good price.

by - Verified Customer June 14, 2016

Went well, and finished on time.

by - Verified Customer June 14, 2016

Brakes still squeal though I was told they didn't any longer. I felt pressure to have #1 priority completed at $600 fee. Was told by second opinion that it was not urgent at all.

by - Verified Customer June 14, 2016

The new manager has no idea how to treat a customer...

by - Verified Customer February 16, 2016

They have always taken good care of me, they do good work. I've had them do several jobs for me in the past. I like their loaner program and their pick-up service.

They aren't as honest as they seem to be. They like to recommend work for the sake of a paycheck. They recommended replacing things that weren't necessarily needed.

by - Verified Customer January 29, 2016

There was a problem with my car. I had to take it back a few times. They eventually found the problem and I really appreciated it. The service was very friendly. They took care of me.

by - Verified Customer January 20, 2016

They were excellent with my car, they diagnosed the problem and they were very attentive and did a great job.

by - Verified Customer January 16, 2016

They took very good care of me even though I showed up late not knowing what time they closed. They were pleasant, patient and great to work with and to have them work on my car. One thing that was awesome is that my boys who work at a Napa store, recommended me to this place. I went in for an oil change and was able to bring my own parts. They also showed me the fluid that was in my transmission and explained to me that it was bad due to the coloring and that it should be a red color. I went and bought the fluid and they took care of it for me.

by - Verified Customer January 09, 2016

They are great. They are super fast. They took it right in and changed my oil.

They were very efficient and quick with what they did.

by - Verified Customer December 31, 2015

They are very trustworthy. I am confident in their work. I think they do a good job. They are helpful. They let you use a loaner car. They are accommodating. If you drop off your car they can drive you to work.

by December 29, 2015

They seemed to have good service. We have only used them once. They are efficient.

by - Verified Customer December 14, 2015

He is honest, he doesn't over charge and he is a nice person.

It was close, convenient. It was fast service. It was customer service friendly.

They are honest. They are conscientious.

by December 03, 2015

I think they are extremely nice, but I don't have great confidence in their mechanical ability to make repairs. I've brought in a couple of different cars, and they're not always able to get repairs done quickly.

by December 02, 2015

They have been good to us. Taking care of the cars, fair and honest. If we have a second opinion and the price is better he says to go with them which is cool. They aren't in it just for the money they actually care about their customers.

by - Verified Customer December 01, 2015

They are convenient to where I live and I recommended my son to them who also lives with me. They have fair prices and do a good job.

He is very reasonable and he does a great job.

by - Verified Customer October 26, 2015

I was just impressed with how quick the service was. I was surprised with how quick I got in. They told me about other issues that I had with my car. Everything was done in a timely manner.

by - Verified Customer October 22, 2015

It is very close to my store, and they take me back to the store when I drop the vehicle off. They sometimes will even take me back to my house.

I had good service. I had a problem, and did not know the solution and they came up with one.

by - Verified Customer October 16, 2015

Even when they didn't get it right the first time, they were willing to fix it. They are great people.

by - Verified Customer October 13, 2015

They provided excellent care. They made sure that everything was up to par on my car. They do an awesome job. I have no problems with them.
