Dexter always takes care of me and my automobile. He always explains what needs work, and what everything will cost in advance, and I appreciate that. I get in on time, I get out on time. I like that, too. And if I've got questions, he takes time to answer them. I never feel rushed into deciding what to get done. I've never felt this way about a mechanic's shop before. I really trust Dexter to take care of me and have my back.

I had a great experience. Someone ordered the car part for me, so I didn't need to worry about accidentally getting the wrong one. The car part was installed very quickly, so I didn't have to wait very long, and the price for the installation was very reasonable.

I like having my car done at Dexter's

Dexter's is a quality shop where the diagnosis is almost always accurate and the price is very fair. The customer is always treated with the utmost of respect. I would not take my car any place other than Dexter's Wayne Street Automotive. Thanks Dexter!!!

It was good service.

Dexter diagnoses with his experience and knowledge-based approach...not computer diagnosis where a shop hasn't even really "got under the hood." He identified what another shop missed on his first take regarding transmission problem.

Everything went great, there were no issues. He always fixes my car better than when it went. I would highly recommend him if anybody needs a mechanic. He is really good at working with you on the price. He lets you know what needs to be fixed right away and what you can get by without getting fixed.
