Dave's Auto Repair, under the leadership of owner Jessica, is topnotch. They do quality work at a reasonable price. I have a somewhat unique car that can be difficult to work on and is often nearly impossible to find parts for. Yet, each and every time I take my car to this professionally run shop with superior mechanics, especially John Z, they exceed my high-standard expectations. Have a nagging problem with your car? Problem solved, take it to Dave's Auto Repair!
Mark Veazey
Made an appointment online, dropped my car off and 4 hours later I got it back. Sadly I could not get help for my problem, but I was not charged. So I was thankful for a honest mechanic.
Jack D. Morris
Reliable, competent service at a fair price for starters. Add-in your commitment to knowing me (ie. my service history, etc.) and making sure I'm receiving a complete service experience --- that makes me a loyal customer.
Cindy Cook
Great service! Good price! Kept me updated on the work being done to my truck. Very happy, will definitely recommend!
Steve Diehl
On vacation my sons car broke down. We took it to Dave’s for an estimate. Double checked the prices with my mechanic back home. They were reasonable. Dave’s did a very thorough inspection. Office staff communicated well. In the end the car had too many issues to put more money into it so he traded the car in. The shop is clean, professional and honest. I would definitely go back.
Sam Zehr
I would go here again. Great staff.
Kelly Tighe
A fantastic experience from the beginning to the end.
Lance Gurney

Rae Pontremoli
They were great! They stayed in touch with me the whole time they had my car, they answered all my questions and even gave me options when I didn’t want to do all the repairs at once. They were very patient with me with my lack of knowledge of car repairs! Jessica in the office was super sweet and it was very refreshing to have someone help me with all that’s going in the world and wasn’t rude or mean! There needs to be more people in world as kinda as the staff is there! Definitely will go back when I am ready to do the remaining repairs on my car!
John Lawrence
Couldn't be friendlier and efficient. I also know for a fact very honest! When I return next winter, if I need work on my cars, it will be Dave's!

Dave's Auto Repair is the premier auto repair shop in Sarasota Florida. Over the years it has not been uncommon for other auto repair shops in the area to send a customer to Dave's when they came upon a problem they could not resolve. That speaks volumes for the automotive repair talent level at Dave's. I have had three such situations and in all three cases Dave's has diagnosed the problem and repaired it. When Dave sold the business the concern was that without Dave, a superstar mechanic, the shop's ability to take on all repairs, routine as well as incredibly difficult, would diminish. Not so. New owner Jessica restocked the talent and upgraded some equipment. In fact, incredibly she now has a mechanic on her team that is on par with Dave ... John Zeiss. John diagnosed and repaired an electrical problem with my somewhat rare car that I had been trying to get fixed for a whopping 11+ years. Bottom line, want your car repaired or serviced correctly and done so while being backed by superior customer service? Go to Dave's Auto Repair.

Ivan Albright

Kerry R.
such friendly, helpful and efficient people that really helped us as travelers in distress. You could have really taken advantage of us, but you treated us right and we will be forever thankful for you all.
David Quigley
Professionals! They don't just change the oil and say good-bye; they inspect the full car and give you honest feedback. They find problems or potential problems and let you decide how to proceed. They'll keep your car running well much longer than a quick, cheep oil change joint.
Cathy Morrison
I was so put off about taking my car in for repair , several off my lights went on including the engine light , I knew the AC wasn’t working up to par , but in the past taking it in always meant an entire list of “must “ do things I needed , and saddly some that I knew were done in the last year 😩 so I started asking friends , etc who they would recommend , I went on my Next Door App , I asked neighbors and here at Dave’s is where I ended up and I couldn’t be happier!🤗 Dave’s was sooo highly recommended I had to try them , I was treated with respect , I was explained everything that was found , it was fixed and my van is back to great ! Oh and I’m not left broke ! Wonderful friendly service !🤗👍🏼
Fast and friendly service. Found my new shop for my cars!
