About Us

Sarasota Mechanics and Team

Jessica and Mike are the new owners of Dave's Auto Repair.  Dave and Karan did a wonderful job developing a reputation for being trustworthy and honest after 42 years in business.  The new owners have big shoes to fill, but Jessica is up to the challenge and also comes with a reputation in the dealership world as being honorable and strict regard for what is morally right.

The business started in 1978 and moved into its current location in 1985.  Throughout the decades, Dave's Auto Repair has made a name for itself for being able to diagnose difficult and unusual vehicle issues.  Sometimes, other repair shops will even bring their problem cars to us for programming & troubleshooting!

Our Sarasota mechanics are able to program not only your car's computer but numerous other modules that must be programmed when a new part is installed in your car.  We have a fantastic team of techs with a diverse background that enables us to specialize in Ford, GM, Toyota, Honda, BMW, VW, Audi, Mercedes, and much more!!  We also take a lot of pride in our shop appearance and cleanliness.  We will take excellent care of your vehicle while you have entrusted us with it.  Looking forward to your call!

"I dropped into Dave’s without an appointment based on their stellar reviews for an ac repair. Jessica was immediately friendly, professional, and attentive. Based on the diagnosis, they definitely could have overcharged me and taken advantage, but Eric went the extra mile and was able to get my ac working and blowing cold again without even having to replace any parts. In a business where honesty and integrity may not always be the priority, I found that to be the priority at Dave’s. Highly recommended."

"I had been having long term intermittent issues with my Dodge Ram 1500. The battery would randomly discharge entirely. The problem was occurring more and more frequently and the Dodge dealer was stymied. After seeing reviews for Dave's Auto Repair, I called for an appointment and took my truck to them...... Within a few days the problem was diagnosed and the most cost effective repair was done. "
