Saturday afternoon 3:30 and my engine starts smoking at the car wash. I call Triple A to be towed. I had called Dave's to see if they could replace my serpentine belt as that looked to be the problem. They assured me they would look into it and get me back running if possible even though they would be closing before too long.
After closer examination they discovered that my AC compresser had died. Since my faithful van is approaching 14 years old such a thing could be expected but still not welcome. They presented me with what it would cost and a loaner car.
I was pleasantly surprised with the offer of a loaner car and the expediency of the repair in a couple of days. My oveall impression was that they were efficient, courteous and as time will tell did an excellent job. As of now, I am very cool in the van and hopefully will remain so through what we all know will be our upcoming hot weather.
Thanks for a great job.
PS I am seriously thinking of changing from my current maintenance garage and most likely will since they have been so responsive to my needs.
