Great experience at Dave's.

by - Verified Customer December 06, 2016

They performed on my car without even calling me first to tell me what was wrong with it or ask for my consent. I was also overcharged $70 for a battery that was said to cost $255, but they are only $188 new.

This service visit was the first occasion in my two plus years of having my Subaru serviced here in which there were issues, albeit relatively minor ones, which required follow-up visits to resolve. Fortunately, Dave, Josh, and the service technicians great.

I brought my vehicle in to this location to have the frame checked to make sure there was nothing wrong. This was going to be a new purchase and I wanted to double check. My car was serviced without my notice and when asking about it the reason was because I gave the wrong phone number and there was no way to contact me. My email was on there as well and I never got an email asking either. I contacted the shop and spoke to the manager the next day and he told me I could come back in and have the car put back the way it was previously. He did have some attitude as I assume there have never been any problems with customers or their cars before. I understand that Dave's Ultimate employees felt like this was dangerous and needed to be addressed. I came to pick up the car that evening, after hours, and was driving home and noticed that my car was pulling hard to the right. I called back the next day to let them know this issue and I was told I could bring my car back in. Upon looking at the paperwork the manager told me that this mistake was "on us" and that the alignment measurements were off. He told me I could bring my car in the next day. After the second day of having the car being looked at and fixed I tried to make it up there before closing. I was not able to speak to anyone about the issue. I took my car to a local shop to have the oil changed and tires rotated. When the employees of this shop tried to rotate my tires they noticed that I actually needed a key to take the rims off. When they looked under the car they noticed the tie rod was extremely loose/broken. I was told that could be highly dangerous if it were to come off. When I called Dave's to speak to the manager I was told if this is the case then a part would need to be ordered. I was also told that this is not their fault. They were the LAST company to do any type of work on the car which involved the alignment. This was several weeks ago. I still have yet to hear back about the problem and what is going to be done. I am upset with the way this situation was handled and would not like anything to do with this company in the future. I am led to believe that this incident was neglected by Dave's Ultimate Auto and should have been addressed. The manager told me that the loose tie rod situation was not on them- even though they serviced the car without my permission. Good customer service and work is hard to come by and it looks like there is some help that needs to be given in this area of your establishment.

Jim and Josh made it right. They let me borrow one of their mechanics to go for a ride in my car so that the mechanic could really figure out what was going on, rather than me trying to explain some abstract scenario to them. They put my car up on the rack, figured out the issue and then I asked the same mechanic who drove my car previously to drive it again to make sure that the issue that was there before was gone. It was gone, I also drove it and the issue was fixed. No cost to me, as previous work was under warranty. They made it right. At the end of the day, that is all you want... for it to just be right.

by - Verified Customer July 06, 2016

I called that morning around 8am, to get my oil changed. You were booked but said bring it in, and originally said it would take all day. I had nothing better to do but work on my laptop and hang out in the lobby.

Within about 2 hours I was out of there. The atmosphere is light, friendly, and fun while they do a great job to take care of their customers!

People were friendly however they fixed air conditioning and it worked for one day and now, is broken again, when I told them I was going across country, and had to drive 4 days with two kids and no air conditioning. Took another repair shop and they said it was another $750 to fix after just spending $1000...not happy.

by - Verified Customer May 26, 2016

I called the shop and was told I could bring my car in the next afternoon. When I showed up they said they were booked and couldn't get me in until the following week. I was not pleased. Then when I did bring the car in for repair, the main thing I asked to be fixed (the low tire light) was NOT fixed when I picked up the vehicle. I had to turn right around and come back to the shop so they could complete the repair I had already been charged for. Again, not pleased.

by - Verified Customer May 13, 2016

I bought a used car in San Antonio on Thursday that began to fail the minute I drove away. My mechanic in North Austin couldn't get to me until the following Thursday so, based on reviews, I contacted Dave's Ultimate Automotive in North Austin. I paid $111.68 for them to tell me what was wrong with the car. When "Jim" called me he gave me the green light on some of the things I was sure were wrong with the car. When I went to pick the car up, "Blair" confirmed that those things were indeed wrong (wheel bearings!) and needed to be replaced immediately. I asked that the estimate/evaluation be amended that I receive a copy. I was told it was emailed to me. It was not. This may not seem like a big deal but it cost me hugely. That day, the guy who sold me the car was amenable to either refunding some of my money or making good on repairs as long as I could provide him with documentation. Since I never got anything from the shop as promised, I couldn't provide anything to the seller and by Monday, when I STILL hadn't received a thing, the seller wasn't willing to do anything. I lost all my momentum because DUA didn't deliver as promised. When they saw the car I had owned it for less than 24 hours. By the time I had to contact them again and get them to send the information, I had had the car for over 3 days. That and the fact that I couldn't even get the straight skinny on my car when I PAID is unconscionable! I would NEVER use or recommend your shop, and quite honestly feel like I should have my money refunded!

Reply from Dave's Ultimate Automotive – by DavesUltimate June 07, 2016

Cindy,
I really appreciate the time you spent with me going over the areas that we fell down on time expectations for you. We were happy to refund your evaluation fee since it did not provide the immediate impact you were expecting. I'm really glad that everything has worked out since this post and hope that we have earned a second opportunity from our actions.

I went to have an oil leak fixed. They did not attach the plugs back correctly so I had to return. The next day I checked my oil because I was going to drive out of state and it was over 2 quarts short. It seems like common sense that if you take your car in for an oil leak that they would top you off before returning the car. I didn't expect that I would pay almost 600 dollars for a repair and then have the car returned to me without the proper level of oil. If I had not checked the oil I would have been on the road in the middle of Texas with a blown rod. I think this was horrible service. I will not be returning to Daves again.

Reply from Dave's Ultimate Automotive – by DavesUltimate June 07, 2016

Valerie, thanks so much for taking the time to speak with us. We were floored that we could make such a simple mistake considering we had to drain your oil to do the repairs. We are going to check the calibration on our equipment just to make sure it was an accident that does not re-occur. You have been a great customer for years now and we are sad to lose you to California, but happy that your perception of us is much better now.

I usually have a great experience with Dave's. But this time, I had requested that my tires be balanced and rotated, because I was experiencing a bit of a wobble. I asked them to check the car over, as usual, and let me know of anything that needed attention. The wobble is still there, so either it was the tires, and wasn't properly addressed, or it is something else and was not properly addressed. Also, a headlight was out. The headlight may have happened just after I got the car back, that is possible, but it certainly does make me wonder. But the wobble is still a problem. It is a disruption for me to take my car in. I'm a sales rep, and need it functional and safe, and need to make sure problems are addressed when I take it in, because I can't do my job without my car. I can't just take a taxi to work. In order to have this addressed, I will have to take another day off to get this looked at again.

Customer service and work was great.

Outrageously expensive charge for changing my battery. Jacked up the price with unnecessary diagnostic analysis rather than simply checking the battery. Will be going to Autozone from now on. I am extremely dissatisfied.

You guys have the best customer service and price around, not to mention you have a shuttle and you have fixed everything needed for my vehicle!

by - Verified Customer May 31, 2012

They are very personable, very, very friendly, very honest, and lots of integrity.

by - Verified Customer May 30, 2012

They were very polite. They were just excellent. I would always take my car back there. If you need to be picked up or dropped off somewhere, they will give you a ride and I was impressed by that.

by - Verified Customer May 25, 2012

They were awesome. They do what they say and they do it on time.

by - Verified Customer May 25, 2012

They were very friendly, gracious, and helpful. They quoted me $500 for a fan motor for the air conditioner, and then they found that it fell off and they didn't have to replace it, so it made about a $200 price difference cheaper. It was very honest of them.
