Vehicle inspection was done with an oil change, all in about 40 minutes.
Good service with good personnel handling customers.
Great service and experience. I was hesitant as a woman to go into this shops. However, I'd now recommend to anyone!
I brought my truck into Dave's Auto. It had a misfire upon acceleration and was not running right. They did diagnostics on the truck and they stated that the catalytic converters were clogged/restricting the flow causing a misfire. They said that It would require replacing the catalytic converters (which they stated that they couldn't do). I paid the diagnostic fee ($110.00) and went to a muffler shop that they recommended. I had the catalytic converters replaced per their recommendations ($700). This did not fix the problem and the problem still persisted. I took it to a different repair shop after their initial diagnosis did not fix my truck. I have now, after spending another $490 replacing 3 plugs and 3 spark plug boots, plus the $700 that I spent at the muffler shop, after Dave's Ultimate recommendations, I finally have a vehicle that runs. I honestly will not go back to this location or any of the locations due this misdiagnosis. It may seem small, but spending $700 un-necessarily kind of puts a bad taste in my mouth. A refund of my diagnostics would be appreciated, but I know it will not happen.
This is the only shop I take my cars and truck to because they have always been honest and dependable.
This place ROCKS! It is now my shop of choice for oil changes and whatever else comes along.
Thanks for the help!
I can clearly say Daves is now my Auto mechanic!
Great service as always!
I took my van in to check for oil leak.
I got two page of quotes.
The price was too high.
So I went to another shop for a quote. I showed them what your shop said was wrong.
He went over it line by line.
He asked me what does spark plugs and wires have to do with oil leak. I said I don't know?
Then he asked if my power steering was acting up and if I was putting power steering fluid in the pump? I said no and I steer just fine.
He came me a quote for the first page of $800 and second page of $700. He said will check everything before doing the job.
I trust this mechanic.
I feel your mechanics are trying to take advantage of me cause I'm an older female with no husband to do the repairs.
My Bishop at my church told me has a great mechanic if I need an third opinion.
I normally do my oil changes at Daves but I think I will stop uses your company all together.
Shame on you!
Great customer service!
The service is great at this location. While any time there's an issue with a car, to me that's never a good experience. But EVERYONE at this shop not only is knowledgeable but patient, very friendly and along with understanding, they make me feel like I'm the most important customer! I am definitely one that wants to lose my mind whenever there's a car problem but somehow this shop seems to lessen the blow!! Great team! (Though I'm a little partial to Bo, he is so kind when I have my breakdowns!!!)
I have been using this automotive repair establishment for several years and I'm very pleased.
It was great
Headlight changed out, all good.
Excellent experience. Dave's earned a loyal customer.
I came to get my inspection. They were quick and very professional.
Everybody was very professional and courteous. I would recommend your shop to my friends and family.
Nice shop, nice people. I was a dealer mechanic myself and appreciate a happy shop.
I loved your communication and photos of the work that needed done via the internet. Your quotes were quick and concise. This was a great experience being that I was out of town when my vehicle needed repairs. Great service !
As always, great people, great job on my vehicle repairs. Will be bringing back for more needed repairs soon. Love that I can trust you with my vehicle!!!!
Going in to Dave's is always great. Everyone is friendly, they use ASE Certified Mechanics so it's done right the first time.
Thanks Dave's Ultimate Automotive Pflugerville for quickly getting my Yukon back into safe road travel shape. Also thanks for the thorough prioritized list of issues to be addressed. While I couldn't knock them all out this time, you can be sure that if/when I relocate back to Austin I'll be sure to come back to my new favorite repair shop. In the meantime, I'll be able to return to MN safely, and with a few less leaks.
Lake Elmo, MN
Very pleased with the service I received.
Great first impression. I am new to town so this take a lot of stress of my shoulders from finding a good mechanic. I love my car and hope it lasts me for years to come and that can only happen by taking good care of it on a consistent basis so I am pleased to have found a place that I believe will fit my needs for routine checkups and repairs when needed! Thanks guys for doing a great job and helping me feel secure when I take my car out on the road.
Brad was very helpful. He thoroughly explained all required repairs to me and answered any questions my husband had by phone. The work was done satisfactorily. They even gave me a courtesy ride to/from home since the repairs ended up being lengthy. Excellent customer service!
I'm so thankful for this automotive company. I had a switch that went out 13 months after it was put in and they fixed it for free. no labor fees, no part fees, no hidden fees.
Everything was great. Service was fast and the guys at the counter were very polite and friendly.
Very good service.
This shop has reliable, friendly service people. they operate with professionalism and integrity. My first visit; I will be back.
Had an appointment, they were on time and the work was performed in a professional manner, I was out in less than 30 minutes, truly appreciated the service.
Staff was friendly and informative on the work that they performed for a great price.
Dropped my truck off after hours on a weeknight and received a call first thing in the morning to let me know they had the vehicle and they would have a look at it that morning. Not only did they find out the cause of the issue but they made recommendations on what I could do to keep the issue from recurring. Just a great experience overall and that is why I have been a loyal Dave's customer for the last several years.
Great experience...I will be back!
As always, good job!
I asked for an oil change and state inspection. Both were completed in less time than estimated.
I took my car in for a new battery and to have tires balanced. The work was done quickly and efficiently. I have been a customer at Dave's Auto for several years and have never had reason to complain.
It's nice to have an honest conversation of what's is, and isn't, needed for your car.
Good place to bring your car for service.
Very honest and thorough.
When I walked in that morning there was only one staff behind desk. He was working on computer and told me that someone would be right with me. I sat down and was ignored even though 2 more staff entered office and were behind desk. About 10 minutes later another customer walked in, went up to the desk and was assisted immediately. That made me angry so I went to desk and announced that I had an appointment and would some one please help me. Not a great first impression!
Great service .
Seems to be honest shop which works fast and accurately and fixes problem the first time.
The quality of work is exceptional. I appreciate their honesty with regards to the condition of my vehicle and what could be done to keep it in good condition. In fact, my brake job wasn't performed because they found that the brakes were in better condition than originally diagnosed.
They were fair and friendly.
I am very thankful to Daves. They really helped me out by providing me with a town company and calling me right away after they received my car at the shop. I'm a single mom and had to work, therefore there was never a face-to-face interaction. They kept me up to date through out the day and my car was done by the end of business. They worked with me the whole way through. I will definitely use Daves for any future maintenance or repairs.
Had my oil changed on a Saturday and next day I had a big puddle of oil under my car. I took it back first thing Monday morning and they said a seal was broken and they replaced it. I'm just glad I did not drive my car anywhere that weekend and no damage was done. I don't feel very confident in sending anyone else in because of this.
Work requested was performed and completed within a timely manner. The staff is respectful and communicated well with me.
The manager was very pleasant and willing to work with you I will definitely take my business there again. Great job guy
I had a full brake replacement there and they did a good job.
The guys were nice and took pictures of repair and process and had them sent to me.
They performed an oil change and lube while I waited. It was done well and promptly, although I did have to return the next day to get the computer reset so that the 'Maintenance Required' light would not be ON.
Thank you for the quick return of my vehicle.
I would not take my car anywhere else. There is no one I trust more than Dave's of Pflugerville
They did the work expected.
I will continue bringing my car to Dave's Ultimate Automotive in Pflugerville because of their excellent service and reasonable prices.
Everything needed was explained well and I was given options for the services I would like to have done. There was no pressure but they gave honest advice and expertise. Can was ready promptly and all repairs worked perfectly.
There was one employee that informed me that he would have a report ready when I got my car, said he could not email it. When I got my car it was not ready and he was not working that day so Bo told me that he would have the person complete it and email it to me. Not sure why the 1st person did not complete the report or why he told me he could not email me the info.
New customer over the last few months. Pleased.
The repair was fine but they left some greasy smudges on the interior of my car which is light grey. They do that every time they work on my car there.
The staff treated me good the work so far meets my expectations.
Just one piece of advice, the mechanics did not clean the fender and hood of the grease and antifreeze that was smudged on car.
I trust them!
The team was very polite and helpful, and worked hard to resolve a mysterious problem. Very pleased!
Great customer service.
Very pleased with the service we received and we thank them for fixing our vehicle. Yes it was expensive for the repairs but but that's partly my fault for not doing timely repairs.
Always easy with Daves Ultimate Automotive-Pflugerville.
New to the area. Efficient, timely and courteous. Excellent.
I would recommend this shop.
Bau is great to work with. He always explains in detail what needs to be done. I appreciate that!
Aaaaaah (sigh of relief)
Thank you guys so much. Lifetime customer!
They did a great job repairing my vehicle.
Beau was great. He really listened to me and exactly what I needed.
Great manager at this location! Will always come back for repair work.
I took my car in for a first time TX inspection, and they told me I needed (only rear) axle bearings, brake pads, rotors, etc. However, I have 3 engine light codes on that they didn't diagnose, and I hear a rattle in the front end every time I hit a bump, so they didn't properly diagnose everything. I paid $100+ for them to diagnose only a few things that are wrong with my car. Very Disappointed.
I appreciate the great service and accommodations when there are delays.
In and out quickly and had what was recommended for the next visit fully explained.
The team at Daves in Pflugerville did a good job of diagnosing and repairing my issues, kept me informed and provided a loaner so I wasn't stuck. Thank you.
I have been a customer for several years. The last few times I have gone, one of the issues is a tire that is low. They have looked at it several times, first time aired it up and said no problems, a few days later low again and they found a nail, next time rotates the tires among other things and still a tire in the same place was low. Did they rotate? Is this a coincidence? Asked for a complete check of everything's so am driving the vehicle over 3,000 miles round trip. Missed my rear windshield washer which is not working even though I told them to check it, my front wipers are totally worn which they also did not address as I discovered today in the rain. Wondering what else they missed? Not happy or confident about my vehicle safety now. Wondering if I should go back a third time about my tires or just go somewhere else.
Great service, good price, will come here from now on.
Always a fantastic experience, which is why I will continue to have my car repairs done @ Dave's. Can't tell you how much it means to me to have such a trustworthy group working on my sweet little car! Thank you!
Had the timing belt, water pump and other belts replaced, I provided them with the parts and they did a good job. My truck is running well, did not have to go back.
Awesome shop! I will be back!
Everyone was courteous and explained the work that needed to be done and had the work completed on time.
Very friendly staff and work was done when promised.
It was awesome!
This is what auto repair strives to be - fair, quality work and good people.
The staff are polite and helpful.
I think they did a good job with the repairs but we did get quoted one price and then they found more related issues so the price went up a bit. They did say they were only charging me their cost for the additional work though.
Daves Ultimate Automotive has always served me well. They are fair, honest, and listen to my needs and make good recommendations. The work has always been performed well and when it hasn't they take every possible avenue to correct it.
Great work, fair prices, and friendly service.
I appreciated the kids play area for my children. However, the toys and books are so rundown. I actually called several months back because I was going to make a run to goodwill to drop some books off. I called your shop and asked if I could bring them.
We were very pleased with our experience and this will be our car repair garage from now on. They are honest and very well priced.
Very curious and informative.
It was great. I was in and out faster than I thought.
I've had almost all of my vehicles repaired in some form or fashion by Dave's. It's always been completed on time, with quality craftsmanship, for a reasonable price. I've never been screwed over at Dave's like I have at other shops.
Excellent and professional service.
I like that they allow you to bring your own parts and they do a good job at replacing them at reasonable prices.
Great work keep it up.
A-1 service and people. You need to have a mechanic you can trust and this company is it.
Showed up at 2:00 pm and waited about 20 minutes for an alignment , and was in and out very fast . Even given a first time discount . Need more work so will be back .
Great as always.
Always a great experience. I came to Dave's for a pre-buy inspection and you have gained (hopefully!) a lifelong customer as a result.
I took my car for a second and third assessment from other local shop. Both came up with chepier estimates and the work that Dave's Ultimate Automotive wanted to do both shops saw no need for. It's frustrating enough dealing out so much money in a short time.
My husband and I both enjoy coming to this shop. We know the work will be honest and done with quality.
They got my truck looked at fast despite having a full schedule. They even went out of their way to order my part and try and get it all done under 24 hours for me as I only have one vehicle and 4 kids to transport daily. I appreciated the fact they worked fast and diligently to get me back on the road as soon as possible and actually did what they said they would. I won't go anywhere else for my truck but here from now on because I know they are going to take care of me as a customer.
Service was timely and everything was explained thoroughly. I was never pressured into getting any service that was not critical by the staff. They were very courteous and understanding of my budget. The pictures sent with the report were really helpful to understand the damage. When I dropped off the car, they had just closed, but they went back to open just so I could drop off the car and talk to someone.
Brakes were serviced. Rotors were replaced at their urging - they had never been replaced. Had the break pads and there was still 3/32 of the pad left. I am not convinced that the rotors could not have been turned - they insisted that current rotors "could not be turned because they are made thinner to make them lighter". Again, I am not convinced that this is true.
Satisfied with oil change.
Friendly, called with estimate, fast and fixed!
Repairs were done in a timely manner and correct the 1st time.
They were great!
Excellent customer service!
Managers were thorough in their explanations of services needed and performed. Prices were reasonable. I trusted the advice I was given because of the genuineness of the managers.
After an initial miss-diagnosis of the problem with my car, a correct diagnosis was made, resulting in 3 more days in the shop & a much larger bill, though they gave me a nice credit for the miss-diagnosis.
I felt very well taken care of.
They are upfront about what needs to be fixed now and what can wait. Great people.
Quick friendly service, next day pick. They broken down charges and let me know what needed to be replaced and what could wait.
Good service. Same Day completion of work.
Ed and Bud were extremely helpful and inviting. Addressed the problem honestly and thoroughly and more importantly, quickly.
Honest, reliable, and very reasonable.
Very professional. Quick to get to my car. Wait time was minimal.
Great service........gave me a ride to and from work even though it was required. Took the time to explain the repairs.
Quick and friendly service.
Good. Also had me use their car for about 2 hrs until they finish repairing my car.
All the associates were friendly and knowledgeable, they diagnosed the problem quickly and provided an alternative to an expensive fix.
Everyone is very courteous and professional, and work was done in a timely manner. Communication was excellent.
Always fair and honest
Fast, easy, prompt service! Love it!
They fit me in the same day I called. There was no wait and the service was very fast.
Awesome, accurate, helpful.
My appointment was supposed to be scheduled as follows: mounting and balancing my new tires, and an alignment. But when I got there, they didn't have me down for an alignment and it seemed to be somewhat of a chore to add that to my service for the day, but they added it. Then they told me I could not get the alignment because of a tie rod needing to be done. So I told my husband (who is a very experienced mechanic and just overall car expert) and he was pretty upset that they didn't just do the alignment while I was there. He will do the tie rod and I'll just have to go back.
Excellent service, honest staff, reasonable pricing.
Great prompt service and friendly staff !
I like you guys better than foundation auto repair, but no matter who you go to, mechanic work isn't cheap. I go with ya'll, because I'm a permanent in Pflugerville resident and the shop is just down the street. Give me some kind of discount on repairs on repairs over $1000....I dropped nearly 1500, give me something, 10% coffee mug, pen something. I walked out the shop feeling like I got hit in the head...a humble guy like me doesn't spend money like that every day
These folks went above and beyond! They kept me updated with the progress and diagnosis and didn't try to sell me what was not actually needed! Thoroughly great experience. Thank you!!
Very friendly service, and they took the time to explain what was and likely was not the cause of my vehicle's problem. My only issue was I had to initiate the communication toward the end of business hours Friday, Saturday, and on Monday to see if the car was ready.
Good customer service.
The work was done in a timely fashion.
All issues were adequately explained and recommendations for future service was made.
They were very friendly and knowledgeable.
Their honesty was a breath of fresh air.
I had the opportunity to receive customer service from Beau and it was a very nice experience,
(which is rare today with most folks in customer service). He was very informative from the first day when I went in just for some car repair information.
Quick and easy
I brought my vehicle in and then brought my daughter's vehicles in. Friendly, courteous service and great work all the way around! They didn't try to add services that were not needed; in fact told me tire rotation could wait until the next service on all three vehicles.
Through, honest and affordable
Routine maintenance was only service, however since I am treated courteously and promptly, I expect to use Dave's if I have a more serious problem.
Fast, efficient, and friendly service.
I was pleased with the service and happy that they didn't try to sell me something I don't need. The only suggestion I have is that the person who checks you out should be able to answer all questions. If not, he should get the mechanic who worked on the car. I asked if the fluids in my car had been filled up and the answer I got was, "they should have been."
The service is great. The employees are very helpful.
very friendly and great customer service
Fast, Friendly, Informative
Always a good job and the people are friendly.
Very friendly...good service and so far the car is running well.
Everyone is sooo nice and professional
I was concern that my truck could overheat (found coolant on top of reservoir bottle when inspecting a belt noise) but the temperature on my gauge was not moving and I was not seeing any coolant anywhere. I paid for a pressure test of the cooling system and was told it was leaking from a radiator weld. I was quoted for $1000 (radiator/thermostat/hose replacement). That did not explain why there would be coolant on top of the reservoir bottle. Took it to another mechanic and explained if the radiator cap was not holding pressure it would explain why the reservoir bottle had coolant. The other mechanic recommended to replace the radiator cap. If I wanted to spend the money on the radiator then I could but at this point the highest probable reason for the coolant was the cap. If anything the water pump pulley had some play in it but was not leaking either. It has been an entire week and I have not lost/seen any coolant leak so the issue has been resolved with the radiator cap. Because of where I was, Daves Ultimate Automotive was the closest location with the best ratings that I could have taken my truck but after this experience I rather drive the extra distance to the other mechanic.
Always efficient and guys are pleasant and readily answer any questions.
This team is always very good at servicing our family vehicles
Always great service!
THE SERVICE IS ALWAYS PROFESSIONAL AND FRIENDLY.
Great service !!!
They took care of a problem that happened after a repair.
For the same diagnostic work they did for $318, the dealer did it for $115. Not sure why such a big difference...
They're honest, they explain everything to me and they're fast and do great work.
They did great job, courteous and friendly!
They are affordable and trustworthy with knowledgeable mechanics.
They were really helpful.
I made an appointment and I was in and out with in 30 minutes.
I saw that it was highly recommended online, but I still had very costly problems right after getting service here.
They are very reliable.
Super professional, great emailed/electronic report, suggestions of urgent repairs to non urgent repairs needed.
Professional and friendly service.
Quick efficient service as well as very reasonable cost.
I always receive excellent service there.
Fast, friendly service.
Great customer service and great service:)
Very quick service, honest assessment, they don't try to price gouge.
Called them and they told me to come on in and they took me right in.
The team is friendly and treat you as family, not a stranger or customer.
I've always had a good experience. They've been honest if something really needs to be fixed or if it's just something to keep an eye on.
They always do the best work and have the best customer service.
Expert service, accurate estimates, all work is guaranteed.
I like their reliability and honesty.
Friendly quick service.
Great service. Quick. Good price.
I like their customer service.
They are quick and efficient.
They were honest with me about my car!
They did good job my car.
They provide great customer service, quick work and always stand behind repairs if there is an issue.
Very good quality of work and customer service.
They are always friendly, honest and do a great job.
They are honest and they do a great job with repairs and oil changes.
I like that you all are up front about issues that are going on with my vehicle.
Every time I need an appointment they always find a way to fit me in same day and take such a short time for my repairs. All the staff is super friendly and their waiting room is super comfy. I know only bring my car here for repairs and I Cannot say enough good things about this shop!
I thought the customer service was great, but only had new tires put on and the alignment done. I am very particular where I take my Audi for repairs, and now feel like I have a new place close to home that I will have my Audi looked at for regular oil changes and any repairs required.
Quick, professional, knowledgeable, good to work with.
That means a lot, thank you!
Great and prompt service.
Many thanks Roy!
We've been taking our two cars to Dave's in Pflugerville for quite a while now, each time we've had the same thing happen: they beat out everyone else I call or take a car to for both cost estimate and repair time. They've never gone over an estimate.
That is wonderful to read, and thank you for the loyalty!
Honest and fair priced service.
I loved the service, honesty and quickness of the inspection and oil change.
Extremely ethical, knowledgeable, and fair. They deliver service above and beyond customer expectation.
Great customer service and quick turn around.
The service my family has been provided has always been great.
I liked the prompt service.
They are friendly, helpful, and excellent mechanics.
Customer Service was awesome. Mechanics explained everything very thoroughly. made great recommendations. Was sensitive to my budget and concerns. Great follow up and the work was great.
They always take care of my car when I come in. Great job!!
They were friendly and accommodating, and explained exactly what they were going to do and how much it would cost.
Their service gives satisfaction.
They are courteous, professional and take good care of your car. and I trust them.
The shop and it's staff were willing to work with my son in "unusual circumstances" and I appreciated it. Staff was always knowledgeable and helpful.
They are dependable, explain things in ways I can understand and the prices are very reasonable.
They checked everything and told me what needed to be done now and what could wait. They are honest.
Great costumer service.
I always get answers I seek and in the shortest time possible. This shop's staff has demonstrated lots of respect to my time and business, and I always come back to them whichever issue I have.
I had a brake job several weeks ago. I later found that one of my lug nuts had been broken. Instead of replacing it with one that matched, they just put any old lug nut on. That is not cool! It only cost $2.50 at AutoZone to get a matching lug nut.
My son has had work done on his car a few times here and ALWAYS receives great service.
Very quick service.
Helpful and a good attitude when dealing with customers.
