Comment: I brought my vehicle here because it was making a noise. They got it in a bay within 10 minutes and 20 minutes later were able to tell me what the issue was along with something else they found. They let me know it wasnt something I needed to have done right away but eventually should be addressed. I appreciate the honesty instead of making it sound like it should be done immediately. My car was done within 24 hours and Don communicated everything with me. The staff was also friendly and easy to talk to. Honesty, good pricing, knowledgeable and nice = returning customer!

Comment: I had to get my brakes replaced last minute because they were completely shot and decided to go here because I saw the good reviews, and I must say I was not disappointed. Don was such a nice guy and made sure that I got in quick and was taken care of. If you need some work done on your vehicle, then I highly recommend this place. They are very honest, nice, and willing to do what they can to make sure you have a good experience. Again, I highly recommend it.

Comment: I have been taking my vehicle here for all repairs for the last 5 years. Don and his team put in alot of effort to make sure job gets done right. Don always gives you a call about what repairs/service you need to get fixed. Plus he gets most of his parts with lifetime warranty and if part has issues you just need to pay for labor to replace. Cant go wrong with going to an auto shop where the owner is there to also help his team and work on your vehicle too when needed!

Comment: Honesty is the key. Don and his mechanics are highly knowledgeable and skilled. I had them review a dealers list of necessary repairs. We had a logical conversation about my vehicle use and whether the repairs were necessary. A number of the repairs werent even an issue. They were able to let me know what was urgent, what could be ignored and the implications. Dons Auto Repair was highly recommended by a few friends. Im glad to finally find a good mechanic.UPDATE: A few hours after I posted my review I got the mail. There was a nice hand written thank you note in the mail from Dons Auto Repair. Business done right. ;)

Would recommend for anyone

Comment: Don helped me fixing a headlight wiring issue on my vehicle same day this past week, had someone drive my mom (who dropped my car off while I worked) back home, and completed the job in a quick and efficient manner. His fees seemed very fair as well. He also diagnosed a plethora of other issues I didnt even realize were present, and didnt charge me anything extra for the diagnosis. He was very honest about what could wait, and what was the most important. Then I received a sweet thank you card from him in the mail today! Will definitely be back in the future, thank you Don! 🙂

Comment: Took my car into Dons auto repair and received amazing service! Not only did they fix problems and issues that a service dealer turned a shoulder to, they gave me and my partner a ride home so we didnt have to stay and wait for the repair! They were informative, and patient, as well as very kind and caring. I would recommend Dons auto service to anyone who is looking for honest and dependable work! Thanks for all the work done on my vehicle and the laughs while we waited during the initial inspection! You guys are awesome and my car is running great thanks to you and your team!

Comment: Im new to the area, and a proud supporter of family owned businesses. I came in for oil change and a check on my brake pads and Don himself was at the front desk. He was very welcoming on the phone when I called to inquire and had me in and out in less than a half hour. His mechanic had a smile on his face the whole time I was there. And as any reputable place, I met a regular while I was there, Frank, he had nothing but great things to say. Will be coming back for future car repairs amd tune ups. Thanks Don!

Comment: I just moved to the area, and had not found a mechanic yet. Naturally, my check engine light pops on and I was having some MAJOR problems with my vehicle while getting gas. Thanks to Google reviews, and being treated like an actual person when I called Don’s shop, I brought my car in! They went above and beyond by not only replacing the issue under the hood and ordering a new gas cap for me, but for going to put some gas in my car just to make sure the problem was resolved. There’s nothing worse than knowing barely anyone in a new area and having car issues!! Thank you for treating me fairly!!

Comment: I did some research and found Don. I came in due to my check engine light. Luckily, they found many other issues that may have gone unnoticed had they not found them. I spent more money than originally planned, however my car runs like new now. Don is honest, skilled, and fair with his pricing. I won’t be taking my car anywhere else for future issues.

Comment: It’s so nice to finally find a really good mechanic that will always be completely honest with you and not over charge or take advantage. My vehicle has never ran better and the brake pads he uses last 3-4 times longer then the other shops. We were laughing the other day because I keep having them check the pads and every time they say they look good and there is never black residue around the rims. Couldn’t be happier with all the work they’ve done and the fair prices I’m always charged. So thankful for everything! If you’re an intelligent person take advantage of this review and give Don a try, promise I would not write this if I didn’t mean every word

Comment: I went to the dealership for a routine oil change only to find out that I needed to have some repairs. I shared this information with others. Only to be instructed to go buy part and have someone else do the work. The cheapest comes to Dearest. I informed them Instead of going here and there with someone without a warranty and create additional problems. I will go with Don’s Auto repair they honest men with integrity he will fix it correctly without any problems.Thank you guys for y’all Honesty and great customer service

Comment: We have four foreign cars in the family all with over 100k miles. We only trust Don to work on them. He is super honest and will explain the things that are safety related and need to be done, those that may cost more if you wait and those that could be done but arent really necessary. Recently I had my car towed in because of a ear piercing noise. They found a small rock and only changed me $30! It could have been so much worse and most likely would have been had I taken it anywhere else. Most of all, he stands behind his work. So glad we found Dons Auto Repair!

Comment: Took my Tahoe to very well known and popular local Tire Company. While having new tires installed they mentioned they could also fix my AC and provided a $1,200 quote. Not comfortable I took the vehicle to Dons Auto Repair. $300 and 40 minutes later my vehicle was blasting very cold air and all the parts the other company said needed to be replaced were actually fine. Don has earned all my business going forward.

Comment: My wifes car had been having issues with the windshield washer fluid not working on her 2007 Lincoln MKX. I called up Don and discussed the issue over the phone with him and he gave me some ideas of what the issue could be. I was able to bring the car in right away and within 15 minutes his mechanic had discovered the issue. I was charged a fair price and given an honest answer as to what was wrong with the windshield washers. I would definitely come back to Dons Auto Repair to have them work on my vehicles and would recommend them to others

Comment: I have lived in the Clarkston/Waterford area all of my 70 years, and, I am very fussy about who works on my cars... I have used at least 10 mechanics over the years but really never have I been as completely happy with any of them as I am with Don.... He and I think along the same lines business wise... I, as with him, ended up working for myself because I could never seem to find that Company/Employer who constantly operated at the level of honesty and integrity that he and I both hold ourselves, and the services that we perform, up to... Don is straight up honest with everyone... He always takes the time to inform and show the customer just what is wrong with their car, always using consistant pricing guidlines... He is very sharp at what he does... The rare combination of Honesty, Intelligence, Intergrity, and friendliness, which is found at Dons Auto Repair, is unequal anywhere else in the area, Believe me, I have looked... I own 5 older cars and pretty much consistently need Dons services... I have never, in the ten years that I have known Don, known him to overcharge or attempt to sell something that I did not need, quite the contrary... He has always bent over backwards to make certain that I was always happy... In the time that I spend there waiting for repairs to be finished I overhear many situations and I have never heard Don lie or mislead anyone... He is always out front with everyone as far as I have always seen... I have however witnessed some customers attempt to cheat him but, he keeps solid repair records, even keeping computer notes of things that he told customers so not to make mistakes and to be certain that he keeps everything straight.... I recommend Dons Auto Repair to anyone who is tired of the old runaround, out of line prices, bad attitudes, and short cut repairs.... If you want to feel comfortable about sending your wife and grown children to an auto repair shop, Dons is your place....

I remember he once told me one of the reasons he started his own auto repair shop. When he worked for others, they wanted him to do shortcuts and not fix the cars properly.All the employees at Dons auto repair have been honest and polite with me every time Ive been there. The prices are reasonable too. Nice clean comfortable waiting room with a very clean customer restroom. Great coffee!Thank you Dons Auto Repair.

Comment: Just moving to the area recently, it was a huge relief to find an honest, dependable, and fast mechanic. Don is really friendly, knowledgeable, and stands behind all of his work. The work he did on both my cars (tow hitch package, battery, brakes) came with a nationwide warranty- which most shops Ive been to dont provide. Dons never tried to add-on anything I didnt really need and all of his work has held up perfectly without any problems. His prices are fair and consistently less expensive than the other guys. Dons my go-to guy for cars.

Comment: I live in West Michigan but was in the area and needed a car repair. I stopped at Dons Auto and got my car fixed. Upon cashing out, I was made aware of a warranty program that Don uses where you can be anywhere in the country and if you have a problem with something Don fixed you can call a 1800 number and they will send you to another certified auto repair center in the same program. My repair had a one year or 12,000 mile nationwide warranty! I cant find an honest place like this where I live!

Don looked at the vehicle and found I needed only pads and that the rotors were fine. Also the other recommended items did not need to be done as the vehicle was not showing any problems. Thanks very much for saving me $400 today!

I figured I had better take it to a guy who knows what hes doing to fix it for me.Having sent this car to 5 repair places including a dealer in the past 5 years for various problems I couldnt handle, but eventually disappointed with each one, I was looking for a new repair place, and called this place, which I drive by a lot.Don was honest with me that he thought I might have screwed up the alternator and got the wrong one and it wasnt working. I was adamant I didnt and the alternator couldnt be the problem because it was brand new.Turns out, he was more right than me.Dons expertise showed, and it actually WAS the alternator that was bad. However, it wasnt because I screwed up the part, it was just a bad alternator out of the box.He went above and beyond, finding the part number, calling OReillys, getting them to bring by a new part (it was guaranteed) and installing it for me for the price we agreed to on the phone just to figure out what was wrong. I think it was because it vexed him as much as it did me. Anyway, it was a very nice gesture.Also, I noticed he had certifications all over his wall, more than most mechanics who usually just have the ASE. Also he had a couch and cushions on all his chairs. That sounds like a dumb thing to find nice, but a lot of places seem to have gotten their chairs as a kind of torture device.

Comment: I do many of my own car repairs. However sometimes I dont have the time or dont have the tools to do the repair. This winter it is just to cold to work in the garage. I trust Don to do the job with the best parts. I know he puts every nut and bolt back in its correct spot. I love the way he does not take shortcuts. Trustworthy man....... Plus his hourly rate is fair. Thanks for the good work.Steve

Comment: I dont know what a break job is but no wonder the people are confused.My experiences at Dons Auto Repair are all positive and while waiting for mycar to be finished, I listened to Don tell other customers that what they weretold to be a very expensive repair at another facility did not even need repair.Another time I heard him on the phone explain in plain English (not automotivelingo) what the problem was so that the person on the other end of the linecould understand.I had a huge problem with 3 tire pressure sensors on my car losing air. I went to thedealer who said the tires just need air. I went back to the dealer a secondtime and was told the problem was because it was cold outside. I thenwent to Dons Auto Repair and was told they needed to be replaced and thatit was a very common problem with tire pressure sensors. I went throughthis 3 different times with each tire pressure sensor.Who would you go back to the dealer or Dons Auto Repair?

Comment: My family has been taking our vehicles to Dons Auto Repair ever since the shop first opened about eight years ago. We consider it well worth the 50 minute drive for us to be able to take our cars to a mechanic we can trust. Our repair work has been excellent 100% of the time. On the one rare occasion a part failed, it was replaced and returned to the manufacturer without hassle and at no charge to us. Don always uses the highest quality part at the least expense to us. He would never try and sell us over priced parts or services which are not needed. He also wouldnt use an inferior part just to lower an estimate because I know our safety is a top priority at Dons Auto. I am comfortable sending my three teenage kids to service our vehicles there and am confident they are not being scammed. He always calls to authorize work and repairs are always explained well as to which jobs can wait and which jobs are a priority. I have also recommended Dons auto to friends and family who have been well satisfied. My father in Ohio, who is meticulous about his car care, has even saved repair jobs for Don when he comes to visit here. And as an added bonus, all of the staff is very friendly and easy to talk to. While in the waiting room, I noticed customers are remembered on a personal level and always treated with respect. I am never made to feel stupid when I explain problems. And the waiting area is very comfortable. like I said, I could go to many other auto repair shops that are closer to me, but I prefer to know that my mechanic is honest and trustworthy and does excellent work. To me, that is a rare find.

Comment: Don did a great job fixing my fuel pump. He is honest about what needs to be fixed. If you do need your brakes fixed, he will tell you for your own safety. If he doesnt think your car is worth the repair costs, he will tell you. His prices are very fair. The location is great too. The inside is kept much cleaner than other shops I have been to.
