Thank you Brian and the crew at Dave Mays!

Customer Review
My 06 Honda Element had an alternator failure. I need my car for work, and my warranties had all expired so I was looking for a shop with quality work, that was honest with fair pricing. I can do the work myself, but when you consider the time you invest to locate, price, and get parts, (some require two trips if there is an exchange required), and the time it takes to do the repair , it is just a much better choice to let a pro do it if you can find a quality shop with fair pricing. It is faster than I can do it, and I don't end up with cuts and bruises all over my hands. I have used some other shops since my warranties expired and was disappointed . I heard on WSKY that Brian, who had a great reputation for many years at another shop was now at Dave Mays. Dave Mays has always had a great reputation as well. Sounded like a win-win to me. I called Dave Mays Automotive and the owner, Brian answered. The shop was really booked with work. I explained my dilemma. Brian understood, squeezed me in, replaced my alternator with the oem brand, and at a very fair price. They will have my future business, and my gratitude.Top Quality at a fair price. Thank you Brian and the crew at Dave Mays.

I will be a faithful customer going forward!

I had my car serviced recently at Dave Mays for the first time. My favorite mechanic Bob has always treated me respectfully and professionally since day one. Upon visit, I really liked the facility, and the employees there were very nice. My first experience was remarkable. I will be a faithful customer. Car runs great, and professional service, all in one!

Best automotive service we have experienced!

We have taken our car to Dave Mays since coming to Gainesville more than a decade ago. They are the best automotive service we have experienced. They have provided honest evaluations of what our car needs and the quality of the work has been superb.

Very professional service.

Brian and his crew are very professional and courteous! We’ve signed up to take all our vehicles to him for servicing! - Ashley M. (recommended on Facebook)

I am so happy to be back with Brian as the person to take care of my vehicle. He’s honest, smart, and reasonable with pricing. Thanks for a great service guys! - Farrah R. (recommended on Facebook)

Recommend without hesitation.

I can't recommend Dave Mays enough! They have saved me more than once now. I have a very tight schedule and live out of town with only one good vehicle and 2 small children who have to ride in it. They accommodated MY schedule and had me out the door at a very fair price on time to pick up the kids every time. They have fixed mistakes other shops have made on my car and kept me on the road safely transporting my precious cargo. I recommend them without hesitation. - Erin S. (5 star review on Yelp)

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)

Very friendly and professional.

I stopped today with the leaking heater hose at 4 PM and he had a guy stay after and fix it for me :) Very friendly and very professional and affordable best staff I’ve ever metAt a auto repair shop - William R. (review on Facebook)
