Reliable auto repair in Carlsbad
There are a few types of different auto repair facilities that make getting your car repair an unpleasant experience and Dave's Auto Repair is not one of them. First there are the low cost scam artists who get you in the door but then start padding the bill. Another type are the large chain repair places which either provide a revolving door of mechanics and a very fake personal experience. They may appear friendly but really are doing a large volume and do not really know you. Service and prices can be mixed both good and bad. Larger chains may have very long times to get appointments to do their unpredictable mass volume. Next are the places with good mechanics but it will cost you an arm and leg for every repair which can be even higher in the high rent coastal areas. Then there are the dealers whose repair costs are high and whose parts costs are also high because they are using the official parts on everything and they have the highest overhead. Dave's Auto Repair in Carlsbad is one of those rare small shops located in the center of this coastal village with easy access west of the 5 freeway which has good mechanics, personal service, easy and low lead time appointments, and reasonable prices due to their lower overhead than many others in the region. They will also give options on buying quality third party parts or original dealer parts, and only what you need repaired to get back on the road while providing an accurate review of things that may need to be repaired in the future so that you can manage your repair budget. Although Dave, who I met when I first started using their low cost oil change services, himself is no longer with us, Rich is the excellent chief mechanic and principle owner now and Will is their constant front desk customer service contact who is the people person who knows his customers and can communicate well both the costs and mechanical issues at hand. Although I get specialized deals for stuff on my car like tires at Costco or batteries or even struts on sale, I have appreciated getting both my service and complex repairs at Daves as well pre-checking my vehicles for the smog test before going to an outside low cost smog test facility.
