  • Was heading out for a vacation to find out my AC didn’t work! Couldn’t find anyone to look at it until I called Dave and I’m so glad I did! I will never go to another auto shop as long as he is in business. Not only did he fix my AC he checked my whole car over knowing I was going on vacation. This was above and beyond anything I asked. Thank you Dave not many people like you left out there! Hope someday I can return the favor.

  • He has a tow company that charges $30! No matter what my issue or complaint has been, he always dives in and takes care of it. I recently had a brake pad smoking and he went above and beyond! Last week I had a ball joint going out. Not only did he do an awesome job but he didn't over charge me. I'm only going to use Dave's Auto. Seriously. He has great prices, is ASE certified, and he warranties his work with receipt. Just call. You'll see.

  • I called in the evening to get an estimate for brake pads/rotors. He was extremely accommodating getting us in the next day. He was very good at communicating prices and what needed to be done. I will definitely use him for our future car repairs and highly recommend him!!!

  • Car Care Tips

  • Brakes

    To make brakes last longer, make sure you’re using common sense to avoid unnecessary wear. This means sticking to the speed limit, braking early to avoid slamming on the brake pedal and even coasting when you can to avoid overworking your brake pads. 

  • Oil Changes

    There’s an age-old debate about how long your vehicle can go between oil changes. Really, it depends more on you than on your car. If you drive in extreme heat, cold or you just drive a lot, you should probably change oil every 3,000 miles. Moderate drives can wait until 5,000. 

  • Auto Body

    Nobody wants to have to take their vehicle to the body shop. However, when it’s necessary, you want to make sure you’re choosing the right place. Read reviews, have a conversation with the shop owner and get several estimates before you choose.

  • Auto Detailing

    Even when your vehicle isn’t being hit by another car, it can still sustain dents, dings and minor imperfections. Think about routine detailing service to keep your vehicle’s coat of paint in prime condition no matter the season!
