We had a overheating problem with a 89 Dodge Caravan. Many mechanics (including the dealer) were unable to diagnose the problem. I took the car to Dave's garage one Saturday morning and within 15 minutes had the problem diagnosed (Small crack in head gasket allowing exhaust gas to leak into the cooling system). He presented the options (replace the gasket) and quoted a very fair price. He also said that since the van had over 100,000 miles and, we might want to consider replacing the van. Not something a mechanic or shop always presents. Since that time, Dave's Auto Center has done all the work on our cars and we have been extremely happy with their work, price and timeliness.

I have used Dave's Auto for five years. Dave has demonstrated himself to be honest, knowledgeable, and honorable. His shop is so popular that I have sometimes had great trouble making an appointment that is convenient for me but he always keeps appointments made and completes work promptly. On occasions when I have been in trouble he has made an extra effort to accomodate me. The one time when a repair of his failed he fixed it at no charge and at a loss to him, I believe. I am now leaving the area and I only hope that I will be able to find a mechanic as trustworthy and pleasant to deal with as Dave has been.

Dave has saved me a bundle compared with the scoundrels at the dealer shop. Several times. Work is first rate, appointment times are kept and work is on time.

Started with Dave's because of the reviews on this site. Had my vehicle there on several occasions, but each time was disappointed by the length of time it took to perform a repair. It was always there for several days, sometimes as long as 2 weeks. I found it curious and somewhat coincidental that after performing one repair, a new problem would pop up and the cause was for an item that was in the same physical location as the last repair. (Makes me wonder if they broke it while performing the previous repair. I'm not suggesting it was on purpose, but I never got any credit for the time to get back to the same location which was near the firewall). I finally had to give up on this repair center and went to another. ...which is where I learned that some hoses and wires (You guessed it.) near the firewall hadn't been connected. :/
