This is the best place in Oakland County to have your Nissan or Datsun Fixed. They are very honest and do a very good job for a reasonable price.

I've been going to Ted's fro about ten years. The last time was before I was to take a trip. I hadn't had a tune-up in a year and thought I might need one before the trip. I explained the work I wanted done, and he told me I didn't need a new tune-up at this time. I had come to expect this kind of straighforward and honest evaluation on his part, and only think it unusual in retropspect -- as I write this. He has many letters from customers on his wall, none of which look like obvious fakes. Many customers also send Christmas cards. His wife, Betty, handles the desk and is always cheery and warm. The mechanics that work with him have been there since I started going there. Like waitresses at a restaurant, staying power is a good sign

I personally cannot say enought GREAT things about Ted, Betty and the guys at the Datsun Doctor. They are extremely knowledgeable about any Asian import.If one looked the word honest up in the dictionary Ted's picture would be next to it. If they can fix it rather than replace it and save you money Ted will do it. Once when I had a problem with my car Ted took it home to test drive it for several days to see if he could located the problem. Ted gave me his Acura to drive while he had my Ford Probe. He found the cause of the problem. Ted has been my #1 mechanic. Not only that but he and everyone at the shop are great folks. I was one of Ted's first customers and have, without hesitation, recommended him to dozens of other folks, all I can say have had the same great experiences dealing with Ted and the folks at the Datsun Doctor of Waterford Township. So if you live in Oakland County Michigan and drive an Asian import and need great service at at a fair and honest price see Ted Pilchak at the Datsun Doctor.

This is one of the best experiences in auto repair I've had. Very friendly service. You can tell it's a smaller outfit with a personal touch. They fixed the SAD shaft on our toyota previa with parts that I supplied. Price was fair, work was good. If you have a japanese car and you want the work done right, these are the guys to see.

I have been working in the Detroit area for several months and needed to find a mechanic to work on my Lexus GS300. The posts on Cartalk pointed me to Dr .Datsun. What a great place. Family run, honest and fair price. A very rare find. I would suggest this place to anyone with a Japanese car.

The folks at Datsun Dr in Waterford are what you want to find in a car repair shop. They are honest, friendly, and very competent, especially on Japanese cars; an area of expertise which can be difficult to find in this area. Every repair was done on time and for the estimated cost or less, and they would walk me or my wife through the problems and show me the bad parts. Their rates are higher than many shops, but they are more competent than most as well. I guess you pay extra to know you have an honest mechanic. Their master tech Renny is a great asset and always makes sure the job is done right. It's a small shop and they're quite busy, but they have always found a way to fit me in, even when my clutch died on the highway right outside their shop on my way in to work(how's that for coincidence?).

The crew at Datsun Doctor are true professionals. They are masters at diagnosing the problem QUICKLY.... that saves the customer alot! Over the years I've had numerous imports, mainly Nissans and a Toyota: they were the ONLY people I'd trust under the hood. I've had all my family members cars serviced there. I wouldn't hesitate to send ALL foreign (...a loose term today) car owners to them. As a side note, they, at your request, aren't affraid to get and install a used part onto an older beater type vehicle. Their expertise in mechanics makes them a superb value!
