Comment: My review is largely based on customer service as we didnt get our car repaired by them given the timing/part availability. We were in town from Charlotte, NC and our check engine light came on. We needed it fixed before we took our two day trip back home and given the holidays the part and service appointments werent available anywhere. But Jamie was very gracious and tried everything to get us back on the road while many other dealers/repair shops were short with us. I would highly recommend giving Daves a call the next time you have a car issue as they were lovely to work with.

Comment: I’ve been taking my cars there for a number of years. They do great work in a timely manner at reasonable prices. I have never been disappointed. I had a fuel leak in my Volvo last year. The dealership said they could get to it in a couple of weeks. I called Dave’s and got it in immediately, thanks again for that.

Comment: Ive been very pleased with Jamie and Craig. Theyve always gotten things done and under budget. They really surprised me the last time I was in earlier this week with a bill under $200 when they thought it would be closer to a thousand based on the diagnosis over the phone. I feel that this is a place you can trust, which is difficult to find, as we all know, for an auto repair facility. They take good care of you, communicate well, and also toss a free local car wash at you at the end of the day. Only good things to say. Very clean office and good people. Go Steelers!Just an update for yall. Ive continued taking vehicles here over the years and have been nothing shy of delighted. Communication from Heather and Danielle is great; leveraging of available Internet services is on target; and they get things done quickly while keeping in touch daily. Keep your business local and roll with these folks.

Comment: I brought my 1999 gwagon, Midnight, to Dave’s Garage after years of adventuring. She had so much fun in California with my daughter, I would have to wear goggles and a snowmobile suit to drive her again here in Michigan. But Dave’s patiently, expertly, and cheerfully put her back together. She rides again! Thanks, all at Dave’s, what a great repair experience.

Comment: My experience with Daves garage was the best experience with a garage that Ive ever had!! It started with the online form they sent where I could share info @ what was wrong with my car to make sure that nothing got missed, and continued from there - including the shuttle service; how the service manager clearly answered all of my questions and explored repair options with me; to the detailed photos of the issue they took so I could show the picture to a transmission rebuild place; and finishing with a follow-up message to make sure all went okay.Daves Garage was completely amazing, and their attention to detail was awesome, unprecedented in my experience with other garages, and really appreciated. I will definitely be bringing my business to Daves from now on, and Ive been telling all my friends about how amazing they are.Thank you for such a great experience!! 😊

Comment: What amazing customer service. Daves Garage saved me and my son. My son has a new job starting this week in Minnesota and his car blew a transmission fluid line two days before he was to move and start his new career. I called 10 different auto repair places and nobody could fit us in with enough time for him to make it. The dealership recommended that I call Daves. Im so happy I did! They understood my situation and told me to bring it right in and they would make it happen. 24 hours later, his car was fixed and disaster was avoided. Amazing customer service from a local company that cares. Thank you so much Daves Garage!

(I dropped off my car in the morning, had them drop me off at my workplace and was contacted by them in mid-afternoon that the work was completed—they then offered to pick me up before rush hour…) In & out and my valve cover gasket repaired in one day, nice job!

Comment: For a garage the lobby is beautiful! People are very nice. Shoutout especially to Brandon at the service desk. I have a Mercedes Benz and the dealership was full, so I couldn’t even get an appointment for an oil change for over a month. Dave’s scheduled me in a week, got it done within a few hours, and I was given a loaner car to use! Great place!

They communicate with you promptly if there is any further problem discovered in the process of the repair, and, while I’m not in the garage to watch, they seem to do the repairs efficiently and well. Having tried several places in the area, they’re definitely the best!

Comment: I have been coming to Dave’s Garage since 2016. They have taken care of my Lexus RX 350 from the time it had 50,000 miles on it to today where it has about 180,000 miles on it. They’ve taken care of all of the service, they do the tires, the brakes, the engine transmission, and just about every other feature in the car.It still runs like a new.They are honorable, thoughtful, extremely competent, trustworthy, and fun to work with. Recommend them to all of my friends. Mike Coonan

Called Daves Garage because of rating and spoke to Craig which I believe is the owner.He told me to come within an hour and he took me right in.The young man who serviced my tire was polite and efficient in testing all tires and the repaired tire three times to ensure it was holding air.I had a lot of traveling ahead of me and felt the vehicle was more than safe for the road trip.Everyone was so polite, and you knew this was a business of integrity. Very clean environment as well.Thanks Daves Garage for helping me out so quickly!Your efforts on my behalf were greatly appreciated.

Comment: We blew the engine on our Lincoln MKX, we took it to Dave’s garage and they were so nice, they worked with us on the price so that the replacement would be something we could afford. The work went smoothly and they got it done right away. They are our forever mechanic now and I would recommend them to anybody that’s having any car troubles. They really care about their customers and they always come up with a deal that will work best for whatever situation you’re in. If you have any car troubles, send it to Dave’s garage you won’t regret the choice.

Thankfully no repairs were needed, and they told us as much. Super honest! Very fair price, super friendly service, and a nice clean facility. Wish we had them at home!

Comment: Dave’s Garage is the ABSOLUTE BEST! No question about it. Fabulous people, excellent communication and great work. I drive a 2000 Jeep Cherokee that I looooove and they give her so much TLC, it’s astonishing. Recently the Blue Whale needed some big undercarriage work and instead of taking the easier path with “new” parts the folks at Dave’s searched the scrap yards of NoMI to find what my truck needed, saving me $$$. And, while I waited, they gave me a fun loaner car! Coming from NYC, it’s hard to believe the folks and services at Dave’s are real. But it’s true! I’m not dreaming! What a gift :)

Comment: My experience was great from start to finish. They were able to get me on the schedule with short notice for a badly needed brake replacement. They provided extremely helpful shuttle drop-off and pick-up rides from my work location during the day while my car was being repaired. The brake pads and rotors were replaced and snow tires changed out for regular tires at a reasonable price. Thanks to Heather and Daves whole crew who took care of us. Appreciate it and have earned our future business.

Comment: We took our 4WD truck to Daves as it would not go into four-wheel drive. They diagnosed and replaced the actuator in the truck. The tech (Stew) also diagnosed some parking assist sensors were not working and replaced. We had a warranty on the actuator and Heather took care of everything...she was fantastic. We highly recommend Daves garage!

Comment: My entire experience at Dave’s Garage, from start to finish was excellent. I needed to have my brakes changed and received vastly different opinions from other providers in the area. The staff at Dave’s were honest and reasonable. Even going as far to let me know I would be better off to wait a few days so they could order more cost effective parts. They were great at communicating, accommodating my schedule, and following up to make sure my vehicle was ok after. I couldn’t recommend Dave’s more!

Comment: Daves Garage was highly recommended to me by several co-workers when I needed HVAC work done on my Trailblazer. They were super accommodating when I had to postpone and switch out my appt a couple of times. The work was done on time and within my expectations for the final bill. The large open office / waiting room is spotlessly clean and the decor matches the business well. The folks I talked to (Brandon and Heather) were great all along the way, including follow-up a week later to be sure of my satisfaction. In turn, I highly recommend Daves Garage.

Comment: Dave’s Garage was amazing! While on vacation our engine fan started acting up, it was exponentially louder than normal and continued to run even after the truck was turned off. We called Dave’s Garage after a quick google search and dropped the truck off within 30 minutes. They gave us a loaner car to continue on with our trip and had the problem fixed (a sensor had gone bad) by the next morning. Everyone was so kind and professional! Thanks for all the help!

Then took complete responsibility for the repair and provided a loaner car for the couple days. Very professional, friendly, and honorable staff. A great place to bring your auto or truck for repairs. Thanks to all at Daves Garage. Glad you are here! Bruce Tamulis, 12/2022

Afterwards, they made me feel relaxed and confident to do the job with an appointment that week. They minimized the cost and completed the work efficiently. I will be a returning customer.

Comment: I was there back in January for a ball joint repair and there was some confusion over the phone about where the noises were coming from and that ended up costing me a bit more money but none the less I got my car back and the noise I took it in for was gone. I got it back with a differant noise so after paying $1600 that was frustrating. But Jamie who i think is the owner was very helpful and adamant that I bring it back in for them to take a look at it and figure out what was up. Overall they did great work. I still have a new noise that wasnt there before hand but that could very well just be a coincidence. Might be on the exspensive side for what I paid to have done, but they always say you pay for what you get.

Comment: My brakes started grinding over the weekend, so Monday morning I was on a mission to find a garage to fix them. Since my mechanic retired, I was lost on where to start….good ol google search led me to Dave’s garage. I called and spoke to a gentleman who was super friendly, understanding the urgency, he said they could squeeze me in the next day. From the moment I arrived at 8 am the next day to the time, only 4 hours later that I pulled out with no grinding and new reliable brakes, I was impressed with the entire experience. Danielle got me checked in, Douglas gave me a ride to work and Brandon checked me out, everyone so friendly and professional. It was around lunch time when my car was ready to be picked up and since most of the staff were headed to lunch, Danielle didn’t hesitate to delay her lunch to come pick me up…SO NICE, thanks to all of you. I hope I don’t need a mechanic right away, but when I do, I won’t hesitate to do my business with you. Great experience AND ….. I have brakes 😊

I got tired of driving to Grand Rapids for service since there is no dealer for a Lexus here in TC, but the dealer told me I could go to Dave’s garage and get good service. It is true! They have serviced it for years and I am happy with the care that they have giving my car.

Comment: Daves has been taking care of my car for years. The communication and responsiveness is great; I never feel like Im annoying anyone with my questions or have to work hard to get service. I always get an accurate quote and usually, when possible, they give me a variety of pricing options to choose from -- no hard upsell. This time my windshield washer fluid pump had corroded and broken in half. They found a new one and had it installed in a few hours. I also love how they take pics of what they find in your vehicle and share, so you can see exactly what the problem is/was. Great value!

Our trucks had thorough inspections, suspension work, fluid flushes and new tires. A few days later something very large punctured and ruined one of my tires. The customer service in getting me back on the road with another new tire was outstanding! I feel comforted and grateful that our beautiful old trucks will be in the care of Daves for all future service and maintenance. Thank you Daves!

Comment: Ive used Daves Garage several times throughout the past and Ive always been blown away by their honesty, pricing and customer service! I took my girlfriends car in after having been quoted thousands of dollars by another place and being told its just the sway bar but also suggesting we spend at least a grand on a vehicle tune up as it turns out the car couldnt even be hoisted and the real trail arm was completely rusted off! Thats a huge difference! I walked into Daves Garage after having been informed of this and was greeted by a kind face. Her name is Heather and shes one of the nicest people I know that does outreach/ customer service in town! She told me that there would be no charge and understood that the car was already a total loss. I also took another one of my vehicles into Daves Garage after having my dealership tell me itd be 500$ to replace a locking mechanism on my car for a door ajar issue. Daves Garage ordered the necessary parts and charged hundreds less. They did have a small mix up and received the wrong door mechanism (passenger instead of the drivers side) and they put it on my car anyway free of charge! Plus the additional correct mechanism! So I have two new door mechanisms now for the price of one!!! ***THIS IS THE BEST GARAGE IN TOWN WOULD 10/10 RECOMMEND!!!

Comment: This was my first time taking my car to Daves Garage, and I couldnt be happier with my experience. I dont have much knowledge about cars, so I always worry about getting taken advantage of when I bring my car in to a shop. I didnt get that feeling when I took it to Daves Garage. They were able to swiftly take care of what I brought the car in for and also identify an issue with my brakes while inspecting my car. Heather was super friendly and communicative with me throughout about the state of my vehicle, broke down the cost of the repairs, and gave me my options on what work needed done now and what could wait. I didnt feel like I was being railroaded into unnecessary repairs, and the cost was less than I expected, definitely more cost effective than taking it to the dealership. My car was ready the next day, and everything was taken care of and working great. They even followed up with me a few days later to make sure the repairs went well and I was happy with the results. Ill definitely be taking my car here again next time it needs work done! They were also really good about observing safety precautions for the pandemic; I was able to drop my car off after hours, so I only had to be there in person briefly to pay, and masks, social distancing, and sanitizer were used, which was appreciated!

Comment: First time customer of Daves and we are pleased. The power steering went out on our Jeep Grand Cherokee. I normally work on our cars myself but this was a little out of my skill set, mainly because I dont have the testing equipment for the proper diagnostics of the hydraulics and the part is too expensive to just guess. Daves Garage was right on target with what we expected price wise and they exceeded with the service and expertise. They couldnt have been more friendly and Heather following up with us afterwards was a nice touch. I will use them again.

Comment: Great shop. In town for the weekend and suddenly lost both headlights simultaneously. Called around to several places and everyone was booked. Called Dave’s and Craig said they said they were booked solid but if I could bring it in, they would be able to take a quick look for me. Dropped by and even though there was a steady flow of customers and a phone constantly ringing, within 45 minutes, they had figured it out and fixed the problem for me. Super service and reasonable price. This is the shop you want to call.

Comment: After moving into TC 4 yr ago I found myself broke down after being referred to Dave’s Garage I was back on the road the next day. Heather is always willing to answer any question I have. If I don’t have a ride after dropping off/picking-up my car Jamie has always offered to get me where I need to be. The price is always lower then what I expect. I highly recommend Dave’s Garage to everyone!

Comment: I have been bringing my 2000 Land Rover Discovery to Dave’s garage for over 10 years. They have done a great job servicing my vehicle for simple as well as big jobs, like reworking the cylinder heads. They also do this work at a reasonable price, certainly compared to going to the dealer. They are also responsive to urgent situations, finding a way to fit you in when you need a quick repair.

Comment: 5 stars is just not enough for what the team at Dave’s Garage was able to do for me. Phenomenal customer service here. I was up in TC for a wedding and our sunroof gets stuck in completely open position. Jamie was able to squeeze me in with the tight schedule they have and get it closed before the 8 hour haul back to Cincinnati. Not to mention it was more than a fair price; one normally hears horror stories of being practically stranded in another city and goughed at the auto shop. Thank you Dave’s Garage!

Comment: It was our first day of vacation and we already had a very late start. On the way up we noticed our suv was using way too much gas and then our check engine light went on. The next morning I searched garages and noticed very good reviews for Daves. I went over and met the owner Jamie who was amazing. All I told him was that my engine light came on and nothing else. Jamie told me actually what was wrong (O2 sensor), told me what happens when this sensor is broke(sucks up gas like crazy, go figure), how much it would cost and how long it would take. He told me it wasnt a vacation breaker and stated to at least get the problem fixed when we got home if we didnt do it while on our vacation. There was no pressure. Brought it back the day and Jamie drove my husband and I back to the campground and then picked us up when it was done. It cost less than he said it would too. I would bring all my vehicles to Jamie if we didnt live 4 1/2 hrs away.Thank you so much Jamie for your honesty and not trying to make the situation sound dire as a car salesman would.

Comment: A mechanic with an extremely personal touch is rare in my experience. I was directed to this garage for an inspection by Lyft. I missed the fine print from Lyft and they filled me in and scheduled me early to help me be sure the used car I had bought was all good before the return date had passed. Quick service with a smile, and they even complimented me on a good purchase for my cool new-to-me car :-)I will be heading back to this garage when I have any issues with my new ride. They definitely earned a returning client with their positive customer service.

Comment: Being a single lady, I was nervous about taking my vehicle to a shop with fears I would be taken advantage of when it came to cost. Daves Garage proved to me that this auto shop is an honest and respectable place to continue doing business through.Craig was amazing to me and so kind. From here on out I will be doing all my repairs through them and referring others also.

Comment: I read all the positive reviews, so I decided to take my car there. I took my car to my usual place, and I was quoted an outrageous price to fix my car. I decided to go to Daves and give them a shot at my business. The person on the phone was really nice and got me in right away. Then, when I showed up I was actually treated like a VIP, and even had fun waiting. After 10 minutes, the lead mechanic came back and said, It was easy fix, this ones on the house, and have a nice day sir.These guys are great mechanics and for the first time in my life, I feel like I can really trust my new car repairmen.Trust the reviews, Daves Garage is that good!Mike G

Comment: I had the ideal experience w/ Daves Garage. Ill definitely be back.My hockey team plays in same league as the team sponsored by Daves Garage. Im new to the area so when my teammates recommended Daves Garage (because most of them are repeat patrons) I figured it was worth a shot.I submitted an online appointment request. Craig called me back at 9am the next day and setup an appointment for the following day. (1) Quick response and quick scheduling. Dropped my car off at 8am and (2) used their courtesy shuttle for a ride downtown while I waited. (3) Estimate completed by mid-day with a fair price on the service recommendation. (4) Car was ready by 4pm and used courtesy shuttle to pick-up my car.

Comment: Id heard good things about Daves Garage in the past. They have a great reputation, but this was my first unplanned visit. My vehicle broke down just down the road from these guys and rather than call a tow truck, the crew came out and pushed my vehicle to the garage. They are very respectful, professional, and friendly. They use quality parts unlike other garages and the price was very fair. Good people. Definitely recommend them.

Comment: Service has been beyond what youd expect from a garage...they treat you like family. Cost concerns were always evaluated and options given. Nice, when you have a 13 year old car that your trying to keep going.

Comment: Daves has worked on my Audi twice in the past two years. Each time their estimate was less than others (10%-20% each time) and their service is impeccable. I will be a repeat customer.

Comment: By far the best experience I have had with a garage. Jamie, one of the owners, is a complete professional. I honestly dont have enough time to describe the great experience I had with them. They are honest, caring and compassionate. They go above and beyond, and they have earned a life time costumer with me.And to the whole team, thanks for much for doing what you did, helping me out in a time of need.

Comment: Im a repeat customer and they have done really good work for me. When my wife was hospitalized, and my car broke down, they went out of their way to get the car back to me as quickly as possible - even though it meant staying late. I currently have another vehicle in the shop and they have done a good job of keeping me informed.

Comment: When it finally came time to have the 60k maintenance done on my Stealth, finding a shop that knew what they were doing and that would give a reasonable price for the work was extremely difficult. Just finding quality parts for this platform anymore is a hassle in itself. I had heard about Daves for a while and decided to go in for a quote. I was given a better out the door price than I had found anywhere else by hundreds of dollars. The job was done precise, cleanly and in a timely manner. No corners cut. Ive since moved from the area, but the team at Daves wouldve been the only team in town I would trust to perform any mechanical service I wouldve needed in the future. Big thanks again to the crew

Comment: I loved the service I received at Daves. They tried the most inexpensive way to fix mydoor before replacing something and it worked. Also received a 10% new customerdiscount. They smudged the car a bit so I was given a voucher for free car wash.The BEST. I will definitely be back.

Comment: By far the best service I have ever had from a garage. They do whatever they can to fit you in when you are in a pinch. Maybe not the lowest prices but fair and when you consider the extra effort they make to treat you fairly it more than makes up for it. I am never concerned if they are doing unnecessary work. The car comes out cleaner than when I brought it in.

Comment: Ive taken my car(s) to Daves since I moved to Traverse City in 2013. With Dave and John, and also later with the new owners, Craig and Jamie, I have laughed and cried. They have always been there to perform outstanding routine maintenance, and also not-so-routine work. Theyve worked me in when my exhaust suddenly fell off my car on my way to work, and had it done in no time. They left me a holiday card on my front seat, with the interior warmed up when I picked it up from my oil change. When my vehicles have inconveniently decided to break down, or was in an accident they are always there to tell it to me straight, honestly, and never talk down to me (Im a 27 year old female...car repair people often try to dishonestly sell you, or talk to you like youre a toddler). During the time following a major accident, they took initiative and called my insurance company, taking a lot of stress and load off my shoulders through a tough time. I highly recommend this garage to anyone.
