Why did they have your car for a year? I would think after a week or so you would have taken it some place else.

I agree,daves trans is the worst.They have nothing but idiots working there.Unfortunately they are in woth the police departments,they tow for them.I took a minivan there years ago,2 transmissions and they still couldnt fix it.I ended up having some guy do it out of his garage and he fix it in 2days,the van ran great after that.They should clean up all the junk at Fairfield and passavant.They dont get cited on it cause theyre buddies with the police HMMMMMM makes you wonder.

@Corley - Why would you leave your car for a year? Also, Dave's has been in business for a long time already so your statement of their business not lasting long is a joke. If they were so bad how would they be able to open up new locations when a number of businesses can't find enough work to support 1?

Very please with Dave. When a local tire shop told me I needed transmission work, I went to Dave's. In 5 min, he diagnosed it as a wheel bearing that the local shop installed a few months ago. They saved me a lot of money.

The only WOW here is in response to reading your post. Wow.

For a year? Did you try paying them? It might have sped up the process. Just wondering.

Did the year have anything to do with you being shipped out and out of the country/area?

Thank you for your service.

I have know and dave and his sons for years and they have been great with fixing any car and truck I have had them work on and will alwaysgo there dave gives great prices check out other shops in the area shops and they try. to get rich quick and tell you need repairs you don't need sometimes it takes time to order parts so be calm don't call 10 times a day so they can finish the work you need done dave is a great guy and saves you money so give him time and you will be very happy

I wonder if we are talking about two different businesses? I also went to Daves on a recommendation from Antioch Tire/Fast Tire, with what everyone thought was a transmission problem. Turned out to be a disconnected vaccuum hose, which Dave fixed for free and sent me on my way happy. It would have been very easy to take advantage of me and charge me a grand (at least) for my 4wd. He's honest in my book.

I once had an experience like yours.
I went to PepBoys for a simple tune up. Ran like crap in a few days.
Took it to the now gone Fox Lake Ford dealer.
Turned out PepBoys only changes half my spark plugs.
The dealer replaced them NO CHARGE and i was on my way happy.
I really miss that dealership.
So i do believe your story and i wish more places were that honest.
Maybe they do screw up once in a while.
But it does sound like when they are good they are very good.
Never been there but if i ever do i'm hoping for the very good.

well it could be a front,but i cant be sure. i,m on a computer that cant be traced back to my home.It seems to me that my freinds older bro deals stuff that people really seem to like. The one thing i have observed is that he works at the car dealer on 12 by walgreens in fox lake. and yes i am a geek. All i know is that he should have his own car dealer for as much trafic that he gets.I only bring this up because hes got a close freind at daves. I,m curently in the EP Program. and thats about as much as i,m going so say about that for now. P.S let all give alittle and safe and clean just by keeping your eyes open.
