I heard a clunking noise every time I ran over a bump and called Brandi. She accepted my car with short notice and had the shop inspect it. They determined it needed rear shock towers and also discovered the front brakes were in need of repair. I like to run drilled and slotted disk brakes, which are not stock parts. Brandi located the rotors and recommended a ceramic pad that I would not have considered without her recommendation. The car stops better than ever now. All work expertly completed!

I just moved an hour away from Danny's shop, but will continue to have my vehicle's serviced there. I trust Danny and his team and cannot find the type of service and communication he provides anywhere else.

I have a major coolant leak and was not local-basically stranded. Brandy was very helpful in arranging a tow truck and getting me into a loaner vehicle.

Reply from Danny's Fitzway Car Clinic – by Moorem September 05, 2017

Thanks! We understand how difficult it can be to be out of the area and in need of repair work.

Was quoted oil change as one of repairs which they neglected to complete. Also total price was much more than previously explained.

Reply from Danny's Fitzway Car Clinic – by Moorem August 21, 2017

Todd, we apologize for the missed oil change, that was an error on our part. We would like to correct that oversight at your convenience. Please contact Matt at the shop, 301-662-0421, to discuss scheduling that service as well as to review the repair order for any mistakes or corrections that are necessary.

Most pleasant and comforting experience ever with auto repair. Although many services were offered, there was no pressure that they must be performed. I have, without reservation, recommended to everyone I know about how I was treated and will bring in all my vehicles for future needs

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!

MESSAGE FROM THE SHOP

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.
