I'm glad that someone recommended the Darden's to us 13 years ago.

We were recommended to this repair shop about 8 years ago and have never been disappointed. They are competent, honest, and stand by their work. If it doesn't work after they fix it they make it right. I always feel confident when I take my auto's into them. I send all of my friends and family there when they ask for a recommendation for a good mechanic.

Darden's is just a wonderful customer friendly shop, a model of what a great neigborhood garage should be. The kept my old Ford Contour (I finally donated it with 160,000 miles) and my wife's old Honda (She donated it with 140,000 miles) running great. Now we have BMW 325i's and the workmanship and reasonableness of the prices continue to be great. In a big city like Houston, it's a real comfort to know that if anything goes wrong with our cars we have somewhere to take them. They also do the regular service check ups (oil changes, fluids etc.) and again are always reasonable and accurate as to when the car will be ready. I couldn't answer the questions as to whether they would rectify an error: they've never made any! Very highly recommended!

We were referred to Dardens by neighbors who have used this local shop for 20+ years, and certainly understand why. We have used them for replacing water pump, a starter, door handle replacement, rear wheel bearing etc. The car is always ready when promised and they stand behind the quality of their work. For example they replaced an ignition coil just over a year ago which we had to have replaced again recently at another shop (Dardens was closed for vacation). My wife brought the receipt to Dardens and they refunded the parts and labor in full for the work done a year earlier. We are loyal customers for years to come!

When we don't have transportation, they pick up and drop off my spouse before and after the repair.

Here's a rarity: They're honest, in addition to being competent. This is a throwback: old fashioned good service, owned/operated as a mom and pop outfit but don't let that fool you: their mechanics are all ANSI certified. Their garage is neatly tucked away into a little subdivision, and they live not too far away. They have a solid gold reputation here, and the Dardens have a huge customer base. The price is right, the job is done right, and most folks are so dedicated to this shop they won't let anyone else even touch their cars.
