Love these guys
09/28/18
After my car was already three days past the date they gave me for when it would be finished, the shop took the car on 'one final test drive,' during which they found that they had triggered three new Check Engine codes they needed to fix. After fixing those, they tried to drive it again and found that they then somehow wiped the programming on the car's computer. After fixing *that*, they reportedly drove the car around the block one more time, came back in and told me 'It's never shifter smoother,' gave me back the car, and I didn't get a quarter mile away before I had to turn around and go back because the car wouldn't shift out of first gear, and the shop KNEW that I was leaving immediately to drive it 14 hours across the country.

Josh was very kind and professional and I really appreciate David being there to drive me home and pick me up when my car was ready. Great driver! Too bad my car was hit less than 24 hours later! Thanks for the great service guys.

In for 60,000 mile service. Gave me options (e.g. different motor oils) without pushing me toward more expensive ones. Gave me a ride home so I wouldn't have to wait there for work to be completed. My second time there now, and I really like this shop and the guys that work there.

Just had an oil change. Was looking for a shop closer to me that worked on BMWs. Good price. Liked the report sent to me for recommended maintenance. Will be back.

I called in to get an oil change the day of and, despite being busy that day, they were able to squeeze me in. Considering I am not a local and was on a road trip, this was majorly helpful.

This is the original Dave's Automotive, servicing the Austin area since 1997. Their second location (also in Austin) opened in 2008. This shop has a team of very experienced technicians, three of whom are ASE certified (two Master Techs). In order to keep up with all of the latest technology, each of them regularly attend training classes and seminars. The shop is committed to having the most up to date scan tools and diagnostic equipment to aid their technicians in accurate and efficient repairs. Performing state mandated smog and safety inspections is an additional customer convenience. Dave's will always provide a detailed inspection report and review it with the customer in order to prioritize any repairs issues which may be noted.
