Makes We Serve
I don't think the mechanic was professional or detail-oriented enough. He missed an obvious issue at the exterior of the engine and ran a block test--of course the car would fail. Then he told me the exploratory work would cost 15-1600 dollars and I'd better just junk the car, which was easily fixed at another repair shop with a cost of merely 350 dollars. I'm just disappointed that my first choice failed me.
So friendly and I never felt like anyone was talking down to me or trying to scam me because of my lack of car knowledge. Even offered me water and coffee when I was sitting and waiting. Friendliest staff!
Tommy is awesome and they gave me good recommendations for my car.
I called the evening before I brought in my car and the very friendly gentleman on the phone said, "Bring it in tomorrow morning and we'll take a look at it." Not only did they "take a look," they called me later in that next morning to tell me what was wrong and and what it would cost and got my approval to proceed. My car was ready two hours earlier than anticipated after I said I needed it for a dental appointment in the afternoon. One problem cost more than expected because the broken bracket meant having to purchase an entire assemblage to which the bracket was attached, but the strange noise was fixed with some "tightening" without any charge whatsoever. All in all, the total cost was *much less* than I expected. I wholeheartedly recommend Dave's Ultimate Automotive and wish I'd started coming here long ago.
Tommy was excellent- I appreciate the clear communication about the process with my car, from beginning to end!
Everyone who works there is nice and friendly, but I do think one of the guys there was trying to con me into spending more based on my lack of car knowledge. Just came in for an oil change, but was prompted to get other fixes totaling around $400. I would appreciate more honesty and straightforwardness. But I can't complain about the work that was done on my car. They did a good job.
Fast service, good explanations, thoughtful reps.
Kind and honest, all I need in an auto shop
Think I was sold something I did not need.
More expensive. After being a long time customer they don't offer free diagnostics.
Very helpful and timely. They let me know what my options were and I didn't feel pressured into anything.
The guys were very friendly and the work was done quickly. Very reasonable prices.
I didn't have an appointment, but they worked me in quickly in order to get my annual auto registration check done, and I was very satisfied with their speed and professionalism.
Got it fixed!
I had my car towed to Dave's and they fixed me up.
Always very helpful, very kind, and very patient.

They were very professional from the start.
Very fast and great customer service!
friendly. answered all our questions. completed repairs in timely fashion.
good customer service, but they didn't put in much effort to figure out what was wrong w my car
they were very nice, and from the high volume of work they have apparently they do great work for everyone...
Very friendly people with knowledge and understanding about the customer when it comes to their cars. Very cool you had a shuttle service.
I love Dave's! It is the first mechanic and automotive shop that, as a female, I've been able to trust. I always know they're being honest and providing quality service, rather than trying to sell me on services I don't actually need. Working with them makes car maintenance and repair stress-free!
They were quick and explained things to me well.
Prompt, professional, friendly service
The shop was upfront about issues and costs, found it to be a transparent and helpful experience.
I had another quote for the Malibu and it was like $1000. I got another quote from my own cousin for $750, but Dave pointed out the problem and saved me a lot of money.
I actually went there for a repair the last time, not this time. I thought that their charges were extremely high. I thought that they were unreasonable and I didn't understand why it cost so much to replace what they replaced. I just thought that the charges were really unreasonable - it was like $300.
Wonderful service! They are extremely trustworthy and it was a great experience overall. Every time I go there, I feel welcomed and I get a good feel from it. You never feel pressured into anything and they're honest.
We appreciated their shuttle service it was tremendously helpful.
They have a voucher for about $20.00 for someone to drive you there.
Michelle the receptionist was very very helpful and nice.
I liked it.
