Please avoid. My car was involved in an accident under their care and it took 10 weeks to repair through their insurance. A decent and honest business would waive the original repair bill but instead they have been to my home several times intimidating my young daughter to pay the bill before discussing it or providing a breakdown of costs / invoice. That is unacceptable behaviour because my family are now frightened to answer the door…

WOW , You brought your car in on a Wednesday with a major coolant leak and you needed it to travel away for the weekend on Friday. We found the leak and once approved by you we carried out the work , staying late to make sure it was ready for you .On Thursday we took it on a test drive and unfortunately a young driver pulled on to a roundabout as we were going around it and hit your passenger door, they admitted reliability as they said everyone turns off the junction before and they have never had to stop before. Luckily no one was injured ,I’m happy it was my mechanic in a car and not a cyclist or motorbike they hit. As soon as I found out I made sure you had a new courtesy car ready for Friday morning. It did take 10 weeks but you had a courtesy car for the duration, now you hope by accusing me of intimidation that you don’t have to pay for the original work approved by yourself. A neighbour heard my conversation with you daughter and has agreed I was very polite .

Daves Auto was recommended to by a friend. Been using 'Daves' for 11 years he kept are second car limping along, fitting our budget, till we were ready to buy a newer car.
The garage is so conscious I have no trouble highly recommending, lovely owner.

Any failures on MOT offers cost resolves. Surprised at other reviews, if your car fails its MOT it fails. Owner a real gem.

Cant be trusted

Took my vehicle in for a service, they didn't mention anything about the cam belt, two months later the cam belt went and did a lot of damage to the engine, if they had of mentioned the cam belt needed changing I would have had them do it, and I'm surprised that they didn't pick it up as in the past other garages have done this to my other cars I had. Also they made a promise that they didn't keep.

Hi , as previously asked, could I have a few more details , vehicle reg, invoice number and mileage, I want to check if the vehicle cam belt was due on this service or on a previous service carried out somewhere else . Also curious why you did not contact me by phone if this was the situation.

A great local business

I couldn’t recommend this company more. Jason is a thoroughly nice bloke. He knows loads about cars and if he can keep your car running he will. Drop your car off, stroll into town and when you Caine back your car will be ready

Dave's Auto was recommended to me, I couldn't recommend highly enough. Given us 5 star treatment, when we were buying another second hand car asked for advice, spot on.
Shocked at negative comments, if your car fails its MOT then it fails, confused why that's the mechanics fault.
What I do know they will fix any problem giving you options to fix and advice to keep a cars service record.
