I have continuously taken vehicles to Dave's shop(s) on Howard Lane for all major repairs, tune-ups & odd noises. Their first shop was a little closer to I35 than the newer, larger shop they're in now. Howard Lane wasn't close at all, but knowing an honest mechanic is worth its weight in gold & something I was willing to go out of my way for. Now that Dave has a shop in South Austin I'm happier than ever because of the convenience. Car troubles never are convenient, but a mechanic shop that will drive you to & from a destination after dropping your car off is a god send! AN online discount coupon & even greater discount for scheduling repairs in advance is much more than I've seen advertised by the national chains... Plus supporting locals I feel is the Austin way! Stay classy Dave!
