"Save with Dave"
I called Don after driving past the lot on a Sunday. He was honest, quick to help and down to earth. I immediately felt like he understood what I need,... was compassionate and really went out of his way to help despite the fact I called close to closing time. He worked hard to get me the vehicle our family needed and could afford. It was the fastest most hassle free car buying experience I've ever had.
Was looking for a used truck and ended up buying an S10 4X4 from Dave's. Overall the experience was nice (although a bit long to complete the paperwork)... and drove the truck home (had 1/2 tank when we drove it off the lot). On the way home, the Service Engine Light (SEL) came on and pulled the code(s) when I got home as I have an OBD2 reader. Turns out O2 sensor was bad (fairly common and easy/cheap to replace) so I didn't make a big deal about it. However, next day I filled up the tank and ended up dumping around 5 gallons of gas on the gas station from a leak in the tank. Called Dave and negotiated how much he'd pay towards the repair (we agreed on 50/50. Had it towed to local Chevy dealer and quote was around $1,500. Provided Dave with copy of quote and without hesitation, he cut me a check. Stand up place
The dealership provided accurate information about the 2004 Mazda MPV I was interested in before I made a 200 mile trip there to inspect the vehicle. ... Dan was the salesman. He made it easy for me to inspect the van, to take it to an independent mechanic, and to negotiate the price after. I felt no pressure and no hassle. The physical facility is basic--just a double-wide mobile home on property. The vehicle inventory is pretty crowded together making it difficult to navigate a vehicle through the lot. But this place is not about fancy bells and whistles. Just a good spot to get a good value on a used vehicle without a lot of pressure.
Great experience with Dave's. The staff is very friendly. The inventory is well maintained with low miles and great prices. They take the time to make... sure you get what is going to be right for you.
I had a very positive buying experience at Dave's. Don was very helpful with finding me financing and the whole process has gone smoothly. Thank you... Don!
Thank you Margi. Hope you are enjoying your new car and will be back to see me. Don
We came all the way across town to check out this place because it had advertised on cars.Com three cars that I was interested in. I had and have the money... to purchase one of the cars today but due to the lack of customer service, I decided I will take my business elsewhere. It took about ten minutes for anyone to even come out to greet us and see what we were interested in and we were the only ones there looking at that time. When the salesman decided to check on us he was less than enthused to engage with us. I don't even know his name because he never told us. We had to ask all the questions about each car that we were interested in. He did open every car that we were interested in, to let us check them out but other than that no conversation was made. Not sure why we got treated this way but it was not a good experience.
Usedcarshopper, Sorry if you feel like it took to long for someone to help you as a lot of the time there is only one person here and he may have been... on the phone. We have never had a review where someone stated we were unenthused. Sometimes a sales person may sense someone does not want to be asked a lot of questions and they will just let the customer look at cars. You did state he was happy to open cars for you. All I can say is I apologize for any misunderstanding. Thank you
Bought my first car here. It was a great experience. I don't know a lot about buying a used car, but here I felt comfortable and confident with my purchase.... I did a lot of research on the car and dealership. Happy with my car.
I am glad to hear it was a great experience for you and how comfortable you were. I was glad we were able to get the financing for you. Don
Very Helpful even though I was just looking at the time. I think we will be back.
I hope you do come back. It was a pleasure helping you. Don
I have been struggling to find a car that was in my price range and had lower than $100k miles on it. Then I found a great Ford Taurus at Dave's Economy... Auto Center that had everything I was looking for! They made the buying process so easy and I would definitely recommend them to anyone who is looking for a great used vehicle!
Michelle, Good luck with your first car. I think it will make you a great car in the years to come. Come see us again. Thank you, Don
Found a great deal on a 2003 Dodge Dakota pickup truck - excellent condition - Don was a low key seller and made the deal work out very easily - drove... it away within the hour.
Jeff, I am Glad you were satisfied with your purchase. Enjoy your retirement !! Thanks again. Don
