The people there were friendly and accommodating. Good service at a good price. I will return to Dave's for future service needs on my vehicles.

by - Verified Customer June 07, 2017

Not professional. Didn't get my car back when promised and got wrong keys when picking up the keys. Nothing was explained. Never going here again.

Dave's went out of their way to pick-up and deliver our car. Most service shops probably would not have done this.

They have done a great job of keeping my car running for many years. I totally recommend them and will definitely go back to them.

by - Verified Customer March 23, 2017

This was a good experience, though I feel that the price was more than anticipated and it seems that repeat customers get charged more than first time customers ... but that may just be a mis-impression. I was very happy the first couple of times I got work done at Dave's, but the experience has been a bit less satisfying each successive time. Thanks.

I suggest you always offer to fill the tank with gas following the repair. This builds your sale and also helps the customer. Also make sure that the customer can pick the car up after regular business hours, while the station is still open. I think your price on lube, oil and filter is very competitive. We appreciate doing business with you for the last 25 years.

Great people, great work - and did not try to talk me into service that could wait.

Sam drove me to my home after I dropped my car, and Sam and Eddie drove my car back. Excellent service! Great staff at gas pumps. Always a good experience.

by - Verified Customer January 25, 2017

Super convenient local garage, where the mechanic is knowledgeable and saved me money by telling me that I did not need any extra work as would normally be stipulated by the standard mileage service table. He did thorough investigation and service but little was needed, because it was low mileage and very clean condition :) Also they were kind enough to give me a ride home on drop off! :)

We needed a vehicle inspection on a Saturday. The shop was accommodating and thorough, at a fair price.

Scheduled appointment on a Thursday for an oil change Saturday am. When I arrived, they did not have a record of the appointment nor of me as a customer despite me having been there before. That was a little frustrating. But they were able to get my car in immediately without a hitch and had the oil changed with inspection done on schedule. They send a nice email outlining what was done and different parts of my car. They outlined what needs to be done in the near future, which is helpful to plan ahead.

by - Verified Customer November 17, 2016

Wasn't an easy fix to get car safely rolling again but we troubleshooted several things and eventually worked out an additional fix that helped the engine run better. Car still has issues but could be some additional factors. Good work done though, and prompt.

Very good customer service overall. However, I came in for a 10,000 mile synthetic oil change and I got a 5k oil change. Not a big deal but really would have like to have what I came in for. I will continue to visit the shop for my mechanical needs. I feel that Dave's is one of the last few honest car repair businesses I know of.

The people here are super friendly. I had work done on an older vehicle, and after bringing it back the second time for a follow up, they went above and beyond. Gave me a loaner while my vehicle was in the shop. I am really happy with this place and will continue to use them. Only negative thing I could say is I do not think I ever received a call saying my vehicle is done either time. I had to call to ask if it was done. Overall, super happy.

Brakes still squeal though I was told they didn't any longer. I felt pressure to have #1 priority completed at $600 fee. Was told by second opinion that it was not urgent at all.

They aren't as honest as they seem to be. They like to recommend work for the sake of a paycheck. They recommended replacing things that weren't necessarily needed.

They were excellent with my car, they diagnosed the problem and they were very attentive and did a great job.

by - Verified Customer January 16, 2016

They took very good care of me even though I showed up late not knowing what time they closed. They were pleasant, patient and great to work with and to have them work on my car. One thing that was awesome is that my boys who work at a Napa store, recommended me to this place. I went in for an oil change and was able to bring my own parts. They also showed me the fluid that was in my transmission and explained to me that it was bad due to the coloring and that it should be a red color. I went and bought the fluid and they took care of it for me.

I think they are extremely nice, but I don't have great confidence in their mechanical ability to make repairs. I've brought in a couple of different cars, and they're not always able to get repairs done quickly.

by December 02, 2015

They have been good to us. Taking care of the cars, fair and honest. If we have a second opinion and the price is better he says to go with them which is cool. They aren't in it just for the money they actually care about their customers.
