"They were able to put a new bulb in and it was all fixed. They take such good care of my 13 year old vehicle. They will not fix anything until they know what it" was. I am able to call them up and they give me a recommendation of what it might be and would ask me to come into the shop. They will not do anything or recommend anything without it being absolutely necessary. They will tell me what is excepted to be done in the future and would give me recommendations too. These are the most honest people in the car business that I have ever dealt with. I am a loyal customer of theirs and they are very skilled. They are also accountable for their work and they have a 2 year warranty on their parts. I also like that they keep electronic records of what work has been done to my car. I wished I could give them an A double plus. They also continuously give me reminders, by email, of when regular services need to be performed.

"They had identified a couple of pricey issues the last time we were in. It was replacing the control alarms and bushing and there was an engine mount that was causing" things to rattle so they replaced that as well. They told us the crucial things that need to happen immediately before the car leaves the shop and then the things that we could hold off for a little while so we can plan ahead so that's very nice. They're definitely an A.

I have used for years. They do wonderful work and they are trustworthy. I have sent many friends to them and found out that many friends used them. It is hard to find a mechanic that I really trust, but is one of those rare gems. They felt buying a new car would be in my best interest because I am a long ...More time customer. We have had a number of Toyotas over the years that they have worked on. They are reliable, trustworthy and they do great work.

My experience working with is like none I have ever experienced before. Total professionals with a high level of customer service makes dealing with them a very pleasurable experience.

First, you must call ahead and make a appointment. They can generally get you in if you call the day before. If you have been ...More there before they have a cool phone system that uses your phone number to identify who is calling.. So they already know who you are and have your account information ready when you call. Pretty cool. The waiting room is nice and has a Keurig coffee machine and some fresh cookies to enjoy. The owner, , was there and showed me around the floor. They have a unique policy that allows you to basically watch the repairman work on your car and ask questions if you wish. Which I have to say is really cool. The first time I brought my car in they did a complete car check up and gave me the status of all the different components of the car. They will give you recommendations of when to change things or how worn components are. The mechanics don't work on commission so there is absolutely no pressure to replace things that may not need replacing, Another cool thing is that they generally match up the same mechanic with the car and he will monitor the different components as the car is brought in for oil changes and such. They have highly specialized mechanics that will work closely with you when you have something beyond a oil change that needs to be fixed. I worked with who is a true professional and a great guy.

As far as the work they did on my vehicle, it was preformed flawlessly for a fair price. The replaced both front suspension mounts and used genuine Toyota struts. The small spring that needed to be replaced was done without charging labor. Just for the part. I highly recommend , as I now bring both my Sister and Mom's cars to the shop as well.

While out on an unrelated errand, I noticed that my TX Safety Inspection Sticker was about to expire. I stopped by Dealer Alternative to ask if they could perform the service - assuming that they would tell me they were busy right now and give me an appointment in a couple of days. As usual, greeted me in their immaculate office ...More space and immediately assigned ( ?) to perform the service. They had the car in and complete before I could drink the cup of delicious (really!) coffee that they offered in the waiting area! I have NEVER received such cordial, efficient, and professional auto service ANYWHERE!

Dealer Alternative has won my trust for all my auto maintenance and repair needs! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for proving that there really are decent, high-integrity service professionals out there in this world!

I took my car and I had to tow it because I couldn't drive till there. It turned out to be a rock struck in between the wheel. I go there for the usual maintenance. The quality is very good. They emphasize their quality. I like them because they send coupons for service discount by emails and the regular mails. I have used the coupons ...More during the last visit. Their price is standard.

I had some minor squealing from my brakes on my 2001 Infiniti SUV. I also needed a periodic oil change and a state inspection. After reading reviews on Angies List, I decided to call Dealers Alternative due to their good ratings and close proximity to my home. I called them on Wednesday and they said they were booked until Friday. I couldn't ...More drop my vehicle that day, so we booked the appointment for Monday. I dropped my vehicle on Sunday night and left the keys in the key drop. They called me about 15 minutes prior to their normal hours on Monday and discussed the requested work.
After they checked the car, they called after about 2 hours and gave a me their recommendations and a price quote. I authorized them to work on the front brakes (new pads and resurface rotors), replace the oil/filter and complete the inspection.
I received a call about 5 hours later that the car was completed and ready for pickup. They brought it around and started the AC while I settled up the bill. Everything was done to my satisfaction and I would use their service again in the future.

Every time I go to D & M, they get down to the source of the problem in about an hour, maybe two. They always tell me exactly whats wrong with my car and fix ONLY what should be fixed. They were featured on local news not too long ago. Then the tv reps showed up with a transmission fluid line loose, they were one of the two out of 14 auto repair ...More shops reported to just tighten the hose and not charge up a fortune.

Had to wait about 10-15 minutes before they could get to my car. Fairly quick way to get our cars serviced regularly. Not sure how price compares.
