I like Dave's Perfection Automotive because Dave 1. Thoroughly explains the available options. 2. Dares to de-mystify the repair process. 3. Is not afraid to tell you when you've done something stupid. 4. Considers the cutomer's financial limitations when recommending options for repair. 5. Has a cool beard. 6. Works out of a funky old building.

Great shop! Dave is great with older cars and seems to really enjoy what he does. I've never had to take a car back to him and he has gone out of his way to help me find parts. Dave doesn't just do the requested work, but checks related systems for potential problems and always calls to discuss options before doing anything. The bonus is getting rundown of what was done afterwards. Couldn't recommend more!

I have never had a shop go into such detail when explaining the necessary repairs and your options. Dave and his crew really know their stuff. Their prices are reasonable, and they take your budget into account when recommending repairs. Not to mention they do great work. I felt like I had a whole new car when they got through with it. I will not be getting my car serviced anywhere else from now on. After being thoroughly screwed and tatooed by the last shop I went to, and honest outfit like Dave's was just what the doctor ordered.

Love Dave and his shop. Originally found him through this site, but the listing was old, so I'm updating that he's still great. Did some major repair work for me at a reasonable price one year ago. Been in to see him three more times since. Twice he fixed up my care in five minutes and sent me on my way with no charge (they were easy fixes, I am not mechanically inclined). The last trip ended up being a major fix, done in two days for a lot less than I paid my last mechanic for similar work. He saved the parts to show me what was wrong and what was replaced, what had apparently been done wrong in the past and what I could expect from it in the future. Highly recommend.
