    We are thrilled with the thorough detailing and will certainly be back again. The Acura is spotless and the interior (which was in serious need of attention) looks showroom ready. Your pricing is very fair and as retirees this is important. Your team is great, and everyone we interacted with was upbeat and professional.

    Dave’s was willing to do an independent pre-purchase inspection of a used car that I was considering from a nearby dealership. They were quick and flagged a minor issue with the car.

    Not all shops are enthusiastic about doing this as such requests often come from people from out of town and are less likely to be repeat customers, so kudos to Dave’s.

    I chose Dave’s Automotive, due to the consistency of reaching out to me via text, to see how things were going or just to let me know it’s time to have my car looked at, a great way to keep clients informed and alert about their vehicle, which in most cases the last thing on a Women’s mind. Thanks for delivering what I deliver to my customers every day….Unmatched Service.

    Love this place ..what’s the first thing you think about when you’re looking for someone to service your car. ..”Can I trust them??”..well this place can be trusted ..and the service is like non other ..welcoming, fast, and professional. Their prices are very reasonable ..I drive 16 miles to go to Dave’s..that should say it all ..I recommend them to ALL my friends ..

    Today was yet another reminder of why my family truly believes that Dave’s Automotive has the best customer service in town and why we have been clients for over 10 years. It was right before the end of a very long day, and literally right before the close of their work day, when we found ourselves with a punctured tire and having to be on the road again before dawn the next morning. We called Dave’s up and explained our situation and they assured they would wait for us to arrive and get the tire fixed up and back on the road as quickly as possible. Sure to their word, when we arrived, they were there waiting for us with a smile on their face and a plan in place. Our heartfelt thanks go out to Jonathan, Laura, Billy and the entire team.

    My husband and I would not go anywhere else but Dave’s Automotive Repair in West Chester, PA. John and his family are the best, and we have been going to them with all of our cars for the past 9 years. His honesty, and reliability, and kindness are phenomenal!! His staff and technicians are top notch, and completely truthful in all respects!! In addition to having all of our vehicles repaired at Dave’s Automotive Repair; we have also purchased two cars from John!!! He is the best, and I would drive 100 miles to make sure that my car is repaired by the best!!!! He has become not only a trusted friend; but family to our family!!

    It’s good to have my 2005 GMC Envoy back on the road. It looks great. Thank you for working within the budget that helped the adjuster approve the work. It would have been disappointing to total the car. It’s a good rig and I’m hoping to keep for a few years before dropping a few bucks on a Tahoe.

    I appreciate the quality work that you guys provide but also at a fair price. Thanks again.

    Our company has just recently started relying on Dave’s Auto for our truck fleet needs, and thus far has provided exceptional customer service , along with dedicated completion times. We appreciate the competitive pricing that coincides with great attention to detail.

    I went to Dave’s Automotive for a fairly complex repair i.e. Blown Head Gasket. This is an engine related repair that many garages won’t attempt to repair. In addition to the blown head gasket, my vehicle needed an inspection, brake work, a new transmission related sensor, new tires, and wiper blades. I was very concerned because this was a car that was being given to my daughter who is in college at Bloomsburg University a 150 miles away from Chester County, PA.

    The garage did a fantastic job on all the repairs, and my daughter was very happy with how well the car performed during the 150 mile trip back to college. The staff at Dave’s are courteous and professional.

    The owner Jonathan, and family over see operations, and the garage is well managed, with customer satisfaction being a big priority.

    My poor truck was disgustingly dirty both inside and out, but thanks to Between the Seats Detailing at Dave’s Automotive she looks like a brand new truck again clean and shinny inside and out. If you want a great detail job on your car/truck. take to Dave’s Automotive they do a GREAT job you won’t be disappointed.

    Their staff is always ready to help their customers! They understand that not every customer understands the needed repairs. They are always willing to walk you through the process. The repairs and the prices always make sense. I’m thankful for this shop!

    Thank you for repairing my tire so promptly. I was visiting and about to drive my Camry home to Maine when I discovered my tire completely flat. After contacting AAA to put the spare on I located Dave’s as AAA shop.
    I called to see if they could take me and plug the tire, the friendly voice said sure. When I found the shop the courteous smiling young man checked my car in and I was out on the road in 18 mins. I was home in Maine 9.25 hours later.

    Samuel said this is the second time that he has used this business. Each time they have been courteous and did good work. They have even offered to drive him to his next location. They value their customers.

    Drop my car off the night before for inspection and oil change. called at 9am the next morning to confirm all was good, received a followup call around noon informing me all work was complete. They thoroughly explained all work that was complete and work the will need to be completed in future.

    So I’m very particular about my car and never had anyone do work but my one mechanic in my area. I decided to get some body work done. Someone side swipe my driver side. To my amazement my car was finished in less than a week and looked good as new. And the staff are super cool and friendly. They’ve won a customer!

    Great friendly service. Called about getting my car inspected and DARE had me come in that morning and I was good to go by that afternoon. Thanks DARE.

    Very satisfactory repair was performed on this rust bucket’s exhaust system. Skilled removal of what was left of highly corroded manifold studs and nuts in short time kept the hours billed to a minimum.

    Three generations of my family have used them. I have been dealing with Dave for over 35 years.

    As I’m writing this review it’s 95 degrees outside, but it’s a comfortable 70 inside my car. Thanks to DAVE’s automotive for making this experience not too painful. The staff was courteous and kind. I was able to drop off my car in the morning and by the end of the day my car was repaired. Was a great experience and I would recommend DAVE’s to anyone.

    My Silverado received the BEST full detail it’s EVER had and it’s had many full details by other shops. If you want a GREAT full detail on your car/truck have Dave’s do the job. Thanks guys

    Anytime some one ask for a referral, it’s DARE you won’t be disappointed. I use to take my vehicle to the dealer, until I found out they work on commission, they get u at inspection, tell u need this and that.

    We brought our Mazda in to decide whether it was worth putting money into or needed to be ‘junked’. After DARE checked it out we are confident that the right decision was made based on their extensive repair list and recommendation. We trust their work, and that they have our best interest with regards to our cars, our safety, and our wallet.

    DARE does not disappoint. Just had fluids replaced in powertrain as preventative maintenance. Very experienced mechanics, well run operation and priced fairly.

    I’ve commented before on my high satisfaction with low to moderate level repairs. My 12 year old GMC Envoy needed more significant work this time. DARE did not disappoint. Diagnosed the problem the first time, shared options and worked with me to choose the best choice for quality, longevity and price. Scheduling was easy, the service was quick and I was informed throughout. Nice work DARE

    I’ve been taking my cars here for 11 years … their best quality … you can trust that the work they do is required and at a fair price … the plus … the staff is welcoming, friendly and professional … what more can you ask

    I would highly recommend this automotive repair shop to anyone. The always seem to be able to squeeze me in at a moments notice and they do great work at a very fair price. You know when you take your care to DARE that they are not just going to tell you there are a bunch of things that need to be fixed just to make money. They give you an honest evaluation and they don’t try to up sell you. If you need your car repaired and you don’t want to be taken advantage of at the dealer, this is the place.

    We purchased an Acura MDX at a terrific price, in great condition, at DARE auto. At the time of the sale (winter) they promised to fix the A/C when we brought it in months later — and they did — a free $500+ job. Excellent service, honest, great prices, good used inventory.

    Everyone at the business was super friendly. I was given a shuttle ride back to my apartment. They had a ton of work to do on the vehicle and completed it all in 24 hours. The vehicle is running like a new vehicle after the service.

    I moved to the area about 4 years ago after living in NYC with no car. As a single female with very little recent car service experience, the expectation is that I’m going to walk into a car service operation and get duped out of a lot of money. On the contrary, I’ve been coming to Dave’s Auto Repair since I moved here and have had consistent great service and at a fair price. This is a family run business with super friendly service and everyone seems generally happy. I’d never imagine having such a positive experience at a car service station. The business is very involved in the local community, which is also important to me. I highly recommend!

    I do have to say that being a first time customer, I’m very impressed with quality, customer service, and the prices are very fair …. its been a long time since I’ve seen such a great garage.

    You all saved the day yesterday and helped me get back home to VA safe and sound. Thanks so much for bringing a happy ending to my car troubles!! You all were amazing. If I lived in West Chester, there would be no question about who I brought my car to.

    I have taken my vehicles to many other repair shops in West Chester. Dave’s Automotive consistently does the highest quality work at a great price. They always treat myself and my family with the utmost respect. They even have a shuttle service to give you a ride to work or your home. I will always bring my cars there and tell my friends and family to do the same.

    I wanted to extend a thank you and true appreciation for the work done over the past two weeks. In diagnosing and repairing my 1997 VW Passat – not once, but twice – you were extremely fair and honest throughout the process. In this age of big box stores and instant information, it’s refreshing to see top-notch customer service from a local family-owned shop. I know understand why your lot is full and the shop is constantly busy – you and your staff should be proud of the business. For as long as my family lives in West Chester our cars will be serviced by DARE Thanks again from a satisfied customer.

    I have taken three cars that I own to Dave’s Automotive for repairs for well over 10-yrs from the simplest to the most complex job you can imagine. Their staff is very friendly and extremely knowledgeable. They ensure timely repair and quality service at very reasonable prices, especially when compared to prices at dealerships. I highly recommend Dave’s Automotive Repair Enterprises (DARE) for your next service repair.

    I have taken my cars to Dave’s Automotive as long as they have been in business. The quality of their customer service has continued to improve with their expansion and technology. I look forward to many more years with them.

    To the guys at Dave’s for the great service I have received on my ’93 project car. After a recent 700 miles tour, the vehicle pulled strong and drove as if it was a brand new car. Greatly appreciate all of their fine restoration efforts!!

    I got my windshield fixed at Dave’s Automotive and I have to say the service was great the price was right and if I need something done I will go back to Dave’s.

    Dave’s Automotive is great repair shop. I have taken all of my cars and trucks (foreign and domestic) to Dave’s for the past 12 years. And I tell all of my friends to take their cars and trucks to Dave’s. Dave, Jonathan, Laura and the crew can tackle any and all projects, such as: replacing an entire wiring harness that short circuited, melted and caught on fire; replacing a blown engine; helping to diagnose a pesky air-bag light; finding that mystery clicking that turned out to be a loose spark-plug and NOT a bad valve lifter (or worse); and run-of-the-mill jobs like brakes or oxygen sensors. What’s more, I often complete many repairs myself; Dave and Co. are always helpful with advice, instructions, and they even help me get the best pricing on parts. I’ld be lost without Dave’s Automotive.

    I was driving to work this morning to UPS and my engine light came on. Since it was 4:00 am I was unable to drop it off anywhere and since I am from Delaware I didn’t have time to drive back down there. Anyway, I thought of your shop and took it there. I met your son and your daughter and they were all very helpful. And the turn around was great. Just wanted to say thanks. Hope all is well with you and your family.
