Wonderful. Not only did I get new tires and usual PM I had my air conditioner compressor replaced due to failure. They stayed open after hours to complete the job and every time I used my air condition this summer, I was so thankful it could be replaced. Thank you.

Very courteous people and thorough service.

by - Verified Customer September 20, 2017

They stated that I needed a lot of work done on my pick-up that would cost me over $7,000. I took my truck to the dealership and they fixed it for $700.

A rip-off! Charged almost three-times as much as local competition, and for inferior, sub-standard service and poor quality.

by - Verified Customer September 05, 2017

The people working the desk seem to know nothing about the technical aspects of the services the shop provides. Only scripted information and pricing. I think they are pushy and insistent.

The tried to charge me nearly $1700 to fix my problem and the Chrysler dealership only charged me $700 for the same exact diagnosis. I will never go to D S again and I will see to it that no one else I know does either.

Way overpriced. Found a shop to do what I needed for more than half of what D S Auto wanted to charge.
