The guys at Dave's were all incredibly nice & welcoming. They explained the process of what they were going to do with my car, offered me coffee and finished my service quickly! It was great!!

I was kind of dreading getting my hybrid's battery problem dealt with because I assumed I 'd have to go to the dealership (which takes all morning and I m not sure if I trust them). I was relieved that Dave's works on hybrids but the staff was all very nice. I expect I'll start using Dave's for my routine maintenance.

Tommy and Steve were professional and respectful. They explained the problem with my car and their quote was on par w/ the estimate I got from the dealer, plus they have a 2-yr warranty which beat out the warranty at the dealership. They gave me loaner car for the day and made it easy for me to get back to work.

I assume the work was done correctly. It has been a week and I haven't had trouble. I did not feel disrespected completely but I did feel condescended to. I'm not sure if I will be returning. While the shop in convenient, the price wasn't better than taking it elsewhere for a more pleasant, overall experience.

The staff was very friendly and helpful! I loved that they did exactly what I needed and didn't push me to do anything unnecessary for an extra cost. I also was very happy with the first time discount and the fact that they replaced a small part for free.

Great work! They fitted me in with very little notice, did what they said they'd do and charged me less than expected. Very happy - my car needed an A/C recharge and now it's frosty!
