I like the work done but the prices of your parts are a bit high when compared.

Cleanest shop! Nice people, very helpful to us when our car broke down on a trip from SC to NY. Car was repaired in one day and we were on the road again. Picked us up at our hotel, brought us to a restaurant so we could get lunch, came back to get us and bring us back to the shop. Thanks!

They did not fix all. I did not request wiper blades.Several times I requested to fix my lights. Lights are on. But they forgot to do that job. I told Taylor and Matt several times.

This last experience at Danny's was the same as every other visit in the past 10 years. The front staff are friendly and courteous, the shop staff is knowledge and hard working, and the folks in the middle who decide what to charge me are reasonable.

From the receptionist who picked up the phone, to the system worked out with the car rental, to Brandy giving me her cell # on a Friday night so I could call her to get additional info on my car, these guys were all great.

These guys go above and beyond my expectations each time I visit. After completing the work, they took my car out for a test drive and then stopped to get it washed and vacuumed for me as well.

Looking for an honest mechanic? The experience at Danny's is like looking out of a glass bottom boat and being able to see the entire ocean floor. Most people like going to the Auto Repair Garage about as much as going to the dentist. At Danny's our clear communication through texting , phone and a custom customer friendly application proves everything we say. That's right, we put it in writing and in pictures. This makes you feel like the visit to the dentist was to a massage parlor instead.
