First time customer of Dave's and we are pleased. The power steering went out on our Jeep Grand Cherokee. I normally work on our cars myself but this was a little out of my skill set, mainly because I don't have the testing equipment for the proper diagnostics of the hydraulics and the part is too expensive to just guess. Dave's Garage was right on target with what we expected price wise and they exceeded with the service and expertise. They couldn't have been more friendly and Heather following up with us afterwards was a nice touch. I will use them again.

After moving into TC 4 yr ago I found myself broke down after being referred to Dave’s Garage I was back on the road the next day. Heather is always willing to answer any question I have. If I don’t have a ride after dropping off/picking-up my car Jamie has always offered to get me where I need to be. The price is always lower then what I expect. I highly recommend Dave’s Garage to everyone!

I have been bringing my 2000 Land Rover Discovery to Dave’s garage for over 10 years. They have done a great job servicing my vehicle for simple as well as big jobs, like reworking the cylinder heads. They also do this work at a reasonable price, certainly compared to going to the dealer. They are also responsive to urgent situations, finding a way to fit you in when you need a quick repair.
