Dave has done a wide range of things for me over the years: repairs to brakes, electrical work, tracking down funny noises, resurrecting dead vehicles, giving opinions on cars I was interested in buying, referring me to other customers of his with used cars to sell. I always feel well-informed about what he's done to my car and why (though not always before he's kept the car for a few days to diagnose it.) He is scrupulous about calling me to discuss costs before he initiates a repair. He has no hesitation about referring me to a dealer if the problem might be under warranty or if it requires reading the car's computer. He has been known not to charge me if the problem is something really little and stupid and takes him 2 minutes to fix. The only possible drawback: he has always taken more than a day for any significant repairs on my cars. But he's thorough! He's right on the Waverly bus line (#73)

Dave serviced all my problems with my previous car and kept it running despite my continued abuse of it until I finished Grad school. Excellent service, always calls with diagnosis and estimates. Honest, good but sometimes a little high pricing. But you get what you pay for. I now have a new car which I will bring to him should it have any problems.

I have been extremely pleased with the service I've received from Automotive Service of Belmont over the last several years. Any problem I've had has been explained to me with as much thoroughness as I've requested. I have enjoyed nothing but quality work and honest informative advice. I recommend Automotive Service of Belmont without hesitation.

I and my wife have taken our cars to this place for years and have never had a problem with Dave. He will tell you whats what and no Bull. He will tell you the cost and no Bull. And he will fix the problem the first time everytime. I would not go to anyone else.

I discovered Automotive Service of Belmont by accident (was actually looking for another service station nearby), and when I stopped to ask for directions and David asked me what was wrong with my car, he explained how he could help, took the time to completely evaluate my car and made a list of recommended repairs with accurate estimates and a related time line. Being a single woman with an older used car, this was a great help and I was able to accomplish each aspect of the repairs in a timely manner and when I could afford it. I've since bought a new car and David takes the utmost care of my vehicle and it runs perfectly and will last me a long time. I recommend this shop to all my friends, especially because it is conveniently located on the bus line to Harvard Square and the Red Line to Boston.

My colleague helped me found this garage through My 99 Toyota Camry had several problems. Luckily all problems have been fixed by Dave Smith, the owner of this garage, quickly and cost efficiently. The car runs great now. Dave explained the problems and fixes in detail. That gained me some good knowledge about the mechanism of the car!

I am very happy with the work that they did for me. They were fair, nice, and gave me free advice when I was having trouble with a local tire place.

I highly recommend Automotive Service of Belmont. I've wanted to find a mechanic I could trust in the area, and I found this shop through the Car Talk web site. I have an older Honda Accord, and it needed a new front left wheel bearing. I also ended up getting a tune-up there (same visit). In the course of changing the spark plugs, David discovered that there was an oil leak that had fouled the plugs. He investigated and fixed that leak as part of the tune up. The final bill was consistent with the estimate he had given me. I'm very pleased with the work and found David to be both personable and knowledgeable. I'll definitely be going back there when I need work on my car in the future. Jesse Jones Somerville, MA
