I will continue to use Dave Mays Automotive

I had Dave's technicians change out a transmission in my truck. Upon completion of the work, the idle was a bit high and I was worried a bit. Dave made me feel comfortable by checking his network to find that this could happen. And the solution was to drive some miles so the computer could learn the new component in the drive train. I will continue to use Dave Mays Automotive and recommend that others do too.

Wheel Bearings

Wheel bearings aren’t a part of maintenance that you regularly think about. At Dave Mays Automotive in Gainesville, we know there are a lot of vehicles on the road with failing wheel bearings, with drivers that aren’t even aware there’s a problem. Bearings fail slowly, typically, so it’s entirely possible that your car is making excessive road noise, underperforming, wearing out your tires, and decreasing your ride quality, without you even knowing it. Since they wear out slowly, most of the time you don’t notice how bad a bearing has deteriorated until it’s been replaced, and you’re reminded of the way your car, truck, or SUV is supposed to perform.

Leaking Tires?

Your tires are the only part of your vehicle that ever come in contact with the road (hopefully.)

At Dave Mays Automotive in Gainesville, we offer solutions to your tire problems that avoid replacing them if possible, getting you the most value out of your tires. Why throw an otherwise good tire out, if all it needs is a simple repair?

Self-Driving Cars

At Dave Mays Automotive in Gainesville, cars are our passion, so naturally we like to keep up with new technology on the market. At the moment, surprisingly the current trend is moving towards a goal you may not expect; self-driving vehicles. You’ve probably heard about self-driving cars a little bit here and there on the news, but it likely still seems somewhere in the realm of science fiction to you. However, the reality is that self-driving cars are on the way and may be here sooner than you think. Already, almost all major automobile manufacturers are dumping billions of dollars into research and development for self-driving cars, and even companies like Uber are jumping on board. What this says to us, is that self-driving cars are not just some gimmick. When the first automobiles hit the road, people laughed at the idea of them someday becoming a viable source of transportation, much less reshaping the entire global community. Nevertheless, just around two decades after the first automobile hit the streets, Ford’s Model T became widely available to the general public, and the rest is history. It seems likely that we’re facing a similar situation in the present. The automobile, for all its modern bells and whistles, has not fundamentally changed since it was invented over a century ago. Self-driving cars will likely redefine the transportation industry as we know and understand it...and it’s less a question of if, but when it will happen.
