The team at Dave's did a great job communicating what was needed and keeping me informed of where they were in the process. They treated me with respect and took great care of our truck.

Shop was honest enough to check for warranty and suggest work covered by warranty be done at the dealer to save money- and still offered fair price for additional work that was don

The shop missed 3 separate target completion dates. The manager blamed me for either not using the loaner vehicle correctly or for not using their services the right way. I am very disappointed with their quality of service.

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.

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.
