Staff is courteous and dedicated!

I started taking my 1974 Ford van to Dave because he could rebuild the carborator and fix anything that went wrong with it. I've had two other Econoline vans, both driven to over 200K miles, all because Dave Mays and his crew could evaluate the problems, decide which could wait & what needed to be fixed immediately to keep me safe and the vehicles on the road. I now take my current mini-van to them because they are ALWAYS current on the newest technology, safety, and emission stuff, while still servicing & repairing it with reasonable down-time. The staff are courteous & dedicated to doing the job right and serving us well. Thanks for 30 years of GREAT SERVICE.! - Beth F. (5 star review on DemandForce)

Happy with everything!

Our SUV runs great. We are very happy with everything from the time we dropped the vehicle, getting notified with the estimate to the picking up. I plan on going back to have maintenance service done. - Roger D. (5 star review on DemandForce)

Top notch expertise!

The service at Dave Mays Automotive is always worth the drive. Expertise and trust are at the top of the list when it comes to my car maintenance. It is important to have well-trained professionals making recommendations and repairs, so I will continue to travel across town for their excellent service. - Sheila C.

Quality work!

I appreciated the answering of all my questions and the trust that I am being answered honestly. I also appreciate not worrying about the quality of work that is being done to either of our cars. I know it is excellent. - Verified Customer (5 star review on DemandForce)

These folks are the real deal!

Have been taking taking our two cars to Dave Mays for nearly 10 years. These folks are the real deal: technically expert, quick-to-turnaround, very reasonably priced, and on top of all that, impeccably courteous and just plain nice. Dave is also an outspoken supporter of our local public radio station -- and a sponsor of its programs -- and a good citizen in the community. Best damn mechanics we've ever used. - Verified Customer (5 star review on DemandForce)

Honest, competent, and friendly!

I've been a customer for many years -- Dave and his crew are honest, competent, and friendly. And they NEVER say "sure lady" and look at you like you're crazy! - Verified Customer (5 star review on DemandForce)

Dave has been my mechanic for over 25 years!

Dave has been my mechanic for over 25 years. He's helped me to keep all of my vehicles over 10 years each and one is still running well at 18 years. I trust him like a family member that wants to ensure my vehicle is safe and with a reasonable investment. It's so convenient that he has my total repair record to review my vehicle's history at a glance. - Missy E. (5 star review on DemandForce)


Thanks for your diligence! I appreciate it! - Verified Customer (4 star review on DemandForce)
