Had my daughter's car 'fixed' by another shop in Houston two months prior to it breaking down in Austin. Had to be towed and ended up at your shop. I had the pleasure of working with Tommy. He was thorough, honest, and completely professional. I appreciated his candor regarding the repairs and his honesty saved me a lot of money and I was able to donate the vehicle to a charity in turn. Thank you so much for a wonderful experience and you have a customer for life in me.

They fixed my car for over $100 less than the dealer quoted. While I was not pressured, they did have more repairs proposed than I had expected. I probably could have pressed for more explanation, but that's partially on me.

Tommy Gibson and their mechanic Tim were a fantastic pair of professionals that took great care of both the immediate needs as well as the potential upcoming needs of my truck. Dave's Automotive was highly recommended by USAA and their service exceeded my expectations! Both a Courtesy shuttle and a complementary vehicle were provided during the hours of diagnostics and repairs. I highly recommend Dave's Automotive for honest and competent vehicle maintenance and repair, and will be definitely seeing them again soon. I love my truck and will confidently trust Tim and Tommy with its care in the future!

I found a couple of screws that were not put back properly. I also was almost charged more than initially quoted but it was handled well at the check out and i paid what was promised

I had recently had an alignment, but still felt the car was pulling slightly. It was troubleshot and adjusted for free. I also got an oil change that cost me what I think they should all cost! Thanks for not breaking the bank on critical routine preventative maintenance!!

I really appreciate the time taken to explain what the issues are, and their honest suggestions regarding the priority of repairs. Their sincerity in how they communicate is what solidified my trust. I really think they do customer service right.
