You Don't Have to Take Our Word for It!

Here's what some of our satisfied customers have to say about Dale's Automotive:

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Dale's Automotive! First, they understand that each vehicle has a person and their lifestyle attached to it! That's so much more important than just being able to do repairs and maintenance! Two Cadillacs, three Lexus, one Toyota, three Chevrolets, one Honda's my personal list of vehicles that my family and I have entrusted to the hands of Dale's mechanics to keep our valuable transportation safe and sound and on the road as both my family and our cars and trucks age! They know what they are doing period! Here's the best part. They absolutely will not overcharge you! As a matter of fact, time after time they have saved me money compared to a traditional dealerships overwhelming hourly rates and even steeper price mark up on parts. These guys are great. And I don't recall any service that they could not provide! Inspection, oil and filter, tires, brakes, engine analysis, emissions, air conditioning, electrical issues are all within their grasps! Thank you Dale and Family (that's how they function), for all that you've done for us down through the years!

I highly recommend Dales Automotive. It's a family run repair shop, and I've been going to them for nearly 10 years now. My parents have been getting their cars repaired here for longer than that. You see, I don't trust mechanics...but I definitely trust Dale. I drive an older car, which means I need a trustworthy mechanic who won't charge me for more than I need, and he doesn't. I dropped my car off about 2 weeks ago because I noticed my breaks felt squishy and I wasn't stopping quickly enough. (I usually drop my car off the night before and pick it up before they close.) At first glance, they couldn't really find anything wrong, so they called me to find out exactly what it was doing. I explained to them how it was acting and they put it up in the air to recheck it. They found out the problem and fixed it and my breaks are good as new! They always take good care of my vehicle, and will let me know (in english) when something looks like it's going to need to be repaired in the future. I've never been charged for something I didn't need...unlike other places. Sure, it can be expensive...but I don't feel like they're using me. Some things are just more costly to repair, especially when my car has over 200,000 miles on it! But thankfully they accept the autopride card. That thing is a lifesaver. It allows me to make payments over the period of several months...interest free.

I will never go anywhere else with my car again. I came here after taking my car to Monroe Muffler Break to have my oil changed. Monroe cracked my oil pan while changing my oil, all of the oil leaked out, and not knowing any of this I drove. When my oil light went on I panicked and drove back there where I was treated awfully and told it was my fault. They told me that I needed to buy a new oil pan which is very expensive. As a full-time student with no income I had no idea what to do or what kind of damage that I had done to my car driving on it with no oil. Panicked, upset, and not knowing anything about cars I had my car taken here to Dales. I was treated wonderfully and my car was taken excellent care of. They were able to fix my oil pan and assure me that my car was ok. Every single time that I need something done on my car, they do their best to squeeze me in. These men do excellent work and really care about what they are doing. If there is anyway for me to get my car to Dales, I will continue to return time and again.

This shop has consistently provided excellent service at great prices. They've always been very friendly and accommodating. They do only the work requested, without digging for other issues that may or may not actually exist. Wonderful local business!

Knowledge, integrity, and determination to do the job right. That's what you will find at Dale's Automotive. And reasonable prices, too. I know that sounds a bit like a commercial, but it's all true. Sadly, it is NOT true of the vast majority of big company service places that loudly advertise their typically terrible service (I'm looking at YOU Tires Plus!).


reviewicon

Thanks for getting the inspection done! And I really appreciate you telling me which stuff didn't need to be replaced right away, saving me hundreds in the process! And Dale, thanks for letting me drive my car home with you in tow to drive it back to the shop so I didn't need to call a cab from your shop, that was priceless!

Dale is one of most personable and competent Honda and Acura specialists I've ever met. Highly recommended.


reviewicon

I hardly ever review things but I felt compelled after my many experiences with Dale. 5 stars, hands down. He is timely, responsive, hard-working, dependable and trustworthy. I have referred many people to him and will continue to do so with utmost confidence. I cannot recommend him enough!


reviewicon

Dale is AWESOME!!! He has been servicing our Hondas for 25+ years. He is the perfect mechanic- fair, expert, quick and SO easy to work with. We just love him. We have older (1991, 1999) Hondas with a ton of mileage on them and we have Dale service them regularly. He keeps them purring like kittens! My 1999 Civic with 265K gets around 34mpg in town, stop & go traffic, with the AC blasting in the summertime!! Who could ask for anything more? Super nice guy too...! Could not recommend more highly!!


reviewicon

Dale is the most wonderful Honda Mechanic I have ever met. Someone from my neighborhood and church introduced me to Dale almost two years ago. Not only is the shop just 2 miles from my house, but Dale is always available to do the small stuff at the spur of the moment. He is the most reasonable Honda service around town and he never tries to sell you unnecessary services. Great service, great prices, and a great person!


reviewicon

I learned about Dale's repair from a friend at work. She highly recommended his shop and I agree with this recommendation. He does great work, doesn't do work that is not needed and charges very reasonable prices. He's just the best!


reviewicon

An honest and reliable repair shop! Dale has been specializing in Honda and Acura repair for many years and it shows in his ability to diagnose and repair my cars. He is very knowledgeable and always willing to help. Repairs here are often half of what the dealership would charge without the hassle of the dealership. The shop offers free wi-fi while you wait and free coffee.
