"I have been a customer for several years now and have always had a positive experience here at Dave's Auto. The service is top notch and you couldn't find a more professional and helpful staff. They go out of their way to check your vehicle thoroughly and to fix the problem completely--you won't need to go back 15 times before they get it right. Whenever possible, they even provide you with a free loaner vehicle while yours is being worked on so you don't need to hassle with arranging rides to work from friends or relatives! I trust the staff at Dave's and for me that is hard to come by. I have been very happy with the care that they have given to my car here and would highly recommend them to anyone."
"Excellent service. I called Dave on a Saturday morning about my car needing brake work and he was able to get me in within an hour with no appointment. He explained what the problem was to me clearly and didn't try to sell me anything else that I didn't need. The price was very good compared to competition I researched and I was back on the road with my problem fully resolved in three hours from start to finish. He even texted me a few days later to make sure everything was in good working order. Thanks Dave."
"I came in with my vehicle which had been experiencing cold-weather starting issues for 2 years. When I took it back to the dealer I had bought it from, the dealer refused to do any work on it, stating, "We can't find the issue." Dave's, on the other hand, did. Dwayne, my mechanic at Dave's, did not give up until he found the exact problem. I got to meet the owner himself, and everyone treats you with respect unlike other mechanics I went to, who blatantly rub in your face that you're not a mechanic, and that they know more than you about cars. The repair cost was very reasonable, I did my research on the repairs done, not to mention they were also willing to work around my financial situation. (I'm not exactly the most wealthy person in Ohio.) To summarize: The mechanics are kind, understanding, and dedicated, the work is of quality, and the cost of repair is low for the level of care you get. I've never reviewed anything in my life, but the the quality of work and service was so great I felt it was the least I could do for the wonderful job they did on my car. Update: Two years later, and my car is still running better than ever. I come here for all my automotive repair needs, because nobody does it quite like Dave's."
"Dave and his staff are professionals in every aspect. From the courteous office staff to the quality of the work performed by the technicians we have had a very positive experience each visit. This is the first 5 star review I have ever provided for any business. Based on the multiple visits and multiple vehicles my family has had serviced by the team at Dave's Auto over the years they have earned my first 5 star rating."
"I have been taking my '07 BMW to Daves for years. Excellent work. A lot less than the dealers. Honest assessments (not trying to get me to buy a new car!). I have also taken my '09 Accord. They really are the best I have worked with. I have recommended to friends who report similar satisfaction with their work."
