They always go the extra mile!

We have been taking our vehicles to Dave for years. The staff is friendly and technically on top of things. We have never been steered wrong as far as what the problems were or weren't. Repairs when needed have been great. They always go the extra mile for customer service and will do anything they can to make the experience of repairing your vehicle convenient.I would suggest the "Bug Check" next time your car is ready for a tune up, oil change, or other routine maintenance. That will give you a chance to experience the quality. - Susan H. (5 star review on Google)

One of the best mechanics in town.

One of the best mechanics in town. I've taken my Toyota Prius to them for a few years, and they always seem competent and thorough. Further, I recently had a major issue arise with my car and they performed a free inspection to help me decide whether or not I should keep the car. They spent a long time on the vehicle and were very thorough. They provided me with a lot of useful information and helped me figure out what to do with no strings attached. They even gave me a ride home. Very pleased with their customer service. I felt they were very honest, trustworthy, and very knowledgable. - Alison O. (5 star review on Google)

Wouldn't go anywhere else!

It's always scary trying to find a mechanic in an unfamiliar town, but Dave Mays has taken such good care of me and my car that I would never go anywhere else. They were very thorough in examining my car, and I felt very comfortable that they were not trying to take advantage of me. Their staff is always cheerful and knowledgeable, which really put me at ease. I trust their recommendations completely, and I would recommend them to anyone who needs car repairs. - Christina R.

I know my vehicles are in good hands!

As a customer at Dave Mays, I find great comfort in knowing that my vehicles are in great hands. The technicians go over the vehicles with a fine tooth comb, and any problems they come across, they are sure to explain why it is a problem, and what needs to be done to correct it. They are honest, and that is very satisfying to me. I highly recommend them to anyone who needs automotive service. - Rob J. (5 star review on Google)

I give them my 100% recommendation!

My car, which has more than 180,000 miles on it and is more than 30 years old, has two carburetors. Most mechanics now only know how to fix fuel injected cars. When the car refused to start when the engine was warm because of a carburetor problem, Dave Mays did extensive research and fixed it. Since then his garage has been my exclusive car repair shop. Think of Dave as a car scientist rather than simply a car technician and you will have a better understanding of what he and his people can do. The people at Dave Mays Automotive are pleasant, their prices are fair, and they stand behind their work. Although the location is a bit out of the way, they will either give you a ride home or lend you a car until yours is ready. I give them my 100 percent recommendation. - Jean F.

Staff is knowledgeable and polite.

Van was having problems w/ service engine light coming on, and turned out that it had a problem relating to a gauge that regulated fuel. Received a loaner later than expected, due to a customer not bringing it back long after his vehicle was fixed, but that wasn't fault of Dave Mays. Vehicle was fixed quickly and van is running well. Have used Dave Mays for over 30 years, and he is always knowledgeable & new front desk manager is polite, thorough, & knows what is going on in the shop at all times. - B S.

I would recommend to anyone!

Dave was extremely helpful and friendly while providing premiere service when repairing a small issue to my car. I would recommend his shop to anyone in Gainesville! - Joshua W. (5 star review on Google)

I'll definitely come back!

I called and was able to set up a time to bring my car in immediately. The service was great and the bug check let me know of a couple of things that need to be done for my car. All was explained clearly to me so I knew what needs to be done first. I will be bringing my car back again. - Diana K. (5 star review on DemandForce)
