Very happy to have found Dave Mays Automotive!

Very happy to have found Dave Mays. I have been through different mechanics with my Subaru and it's been a frustrating experience. I feel the search ends here. I appreciated Dan's knowledge and easy, yet professional manner. Thanks!! - Molly B. (5 star review on DemandForce)

Everything was great!

Went in for an oil change, and also got air filter change and tire rotation, both of which were needed. Was in and out in a reasonable amount of time. Overall, everything was great! - Bill R. (5 star review on DemandForce)

Exemplary service!

We discovered a couple of minor problems with our vehicle on the morning of our departure for a long family vacation that couldn't be postponed. DMA were able to fit us in without any advance warning and to send us on our way, all problems fixed, in no time at all. Exemplary service! - Terry H. (5 star review on DemandForce)
