I go to Dave's for one reason. Excellent Service!!!!
09/27/18
Fast and friendly service!

The shop had several chances to let me know ahead of time how expensive my requested oil change would be, but didn't inform me until it came time to pay. I have never seen a domestic oil change cost $250 before, and it was only after my surprise and and consternation about $30-a-quart oil that the manager changed the pricing from astronomical to still-marked-up-but-palatable. I would not feel safe sending someone who is not as knowledgeable to this business.

Love this shop. Friendly staff. They even swapped the battery in my key without charge or being asked.
09/17/18
Too expensive.

Quick and fast and did not try to upsell.

They were willing to work with me.

Everything was spectacular, except that a part was late and I got my car Monday instead of Friday. This was all communicated in a timely manner and respectfully. I shall return.

Tommy is great. It look 3 times of me bringing it in amd y'all looking at it, but he didnt stop until he could give me an answer. It was not an easy problem to figure out.

Staff is very knowledgeable. They gave me a list of suggested repairs in the order of importance. No pressure from staff. Friendly. I left the shop knowing this would now be my repair shop. I've already recommended Dave's to a friend and she's happy with the service as well.

Great shop!

Awesome customer service which is very important to me. They got us in fast and had our truck ready the next day!

I feel like the service was good up until I called to say that my truck is doing something that it wasn't doing prior to taking it to Dave's.
09/07/18
My Volvo was essentially totaled, quoted $6k in repairs on a car only worth $3k and expected almost $500 just to diagnose it.
09/05/18
Steve was a huge help and worked well with me during my car issues. Price was fair and communication was great. Definitely found my regular auto shop!
