I met Eric and told him what my car was sounding like and he listened said he didn't think it was anything in the engine. I had to drop my car off and they provide me when a loaner car so I wouldn't miss work. They called me to let me know what needed done before working on it. Very knowledge about their job. I will definitely be using them in the future.

Took our 2015 Legacy in for its 30,000 mile maintenance it was half the price as anywhere else we loooked. We dropped it off on a Tuesday after work and picked up on Wednesday afternoon. The work was done good and fast. They gave me a time that it would be done and it was done early. The customer service guys were very polite and knowledgeable. Overall i will be using them over and over i already have an appointment for my other vehicle. Its just nice to go to a mechanic that you can trust and the price is great.

Dave's is always responsive to my request or vehicle needs. When I stopped by to have them look at leaking antifreeze they took the time to assess the problem – without an appointment. The next day I took it in for the necessary repairs and they gave me a loaner. They're always friendly – great customer service!
