I do not go out of my way but when someone asks I will tell them where I go.

They are honest. They do good work and they are honest.

Donovan's was fast, to the point, and honest with their work. They were open about the problems and didn't try to add on additional pointless work.

by - Verified Customer May 24, 2013

I've been going to them for over 20 years. They are reasonable and reliable. I've had four different vehicles they have serviced and I've never had any problems. They don't take advantage of you. They are trustworthy.
