Thank you, Dave Mays Automotive.

By some great stroke of luck and grace, I found my way to Dave Mays Automotive when the car needed service. Dave was so great! He always knew what the problem was and how to fix it. And, most of all, he was always honest and never, ever overcharged for his work. Believe me, as a woman alone with only rudimentary knowledge of cars, engines and how it all worked I had been taken advantage of by unscrupulous mechanics multiple times in the past. The day Dave brought out a stethoscope to listen to the engine on my car, I knew I had met a master! I write today to offer a very belated but so heart felt thank you to Dave. You were really a life saver when I needed help. You were a reason for me to continue to believe in the goodness of human beings and to believe integrity and honesty and craftsmanship were alive and well.
I hope your life in the intervening years has been blessed with good health, prosperity, peace and happiness. Thank you! - Jane R. (recommended on Facebook)
