Oxygen sensor replacement
I called before I scheduled service because we were thinking of doing it ourselves. However, after talking with Henry about the car, the tool, and any possible complications, my husband & I decided to have Power do it. They not only had it in & out quickly, but noticed the automatic windows needed lube too--as a bonus. And noticed a sound that could become another issue(the car is 20 years old!!). Very pleasant and helpful. Very honest. Dependable. We've used this garage before and they stand behind their work & parts.

Transparent Service
I had both an emergency repair and a number of maintenance items done during this visit. I was impressed at how they understood budgets and the need to pick and choose. The did not push any service or operation. When unexpected items were discovered, an immediate phone call alerted me to the fact with the option to complete or skip it. Their estimate was spot on. Service was timely. I felt that I was in control of the transaction instead of being buffaloed into extra service on someone else's time frame. You can tell a lot about a business by how they interact with unexpected "problem" customers or repeat customers who might not be spending as much. Even the owner picked up the phone routinely and knew many of the customers by first name. They made time in their schedule for an emergency service and treated the customer respectfully and as if their money was the same as anyone else. Definitely going back with a different truck, a 1996 LandCruiser.

Finally found a shop that's true to their word.
These guys went through my 2005 Dakota with a fine tooth comb and found all the things that weren't working right as well as all the leaks...fixed everything and had the old truck running like a top. The price was less than I had thought it would be so I couldn't be happier. They called and kept me in the loop on a regular basis and got the job done right. May have taken a bit longer than expected but with the bad weather and guys being out sick I think they did great! Won't be taking my truck anywhere else! Thanks!

Excellent professionalism and customer service
These guys really know how to be professional. Took my boat in for a no start and he had it started in under 15 minutes. Jake explained to me how and what he did. Went above and beyond helping load the boat onto vehicle and disconnect the Battery for the winter. He used professional language with is a lost art these days. Henry was also very professional in his language and skills. Really appreciate being treated with respect. Thank you.

Complete Satisfaction
This team is top notch; honest, fair, fast, and professional. We take all are outdoor/marine motor challenges to them AND we refer our friends and family to them. They may not be the cheapest but when they get it done in half the time that hourly rate is a mute point as it still works out in your favor. 👍

5 Star...
Again, Henry and the Dave Power Team come through when I need them. Helped my son in a pinch when he needed a quick brake repair. In and out and back on the road in about 1.5 hrs! Thanks-Rich Knoll
