I was recommended to DTR by my boss. My check engine light came on and I knew I would need to fix it to pass inspection. I felt like they went above and beyond to help me fix my engine problems. They were also nice enough to break down pricing/parts down for me and kept me updated with the entire process. This was one of the best experiences I’ve had with an auto shop. I would definitely be back again.

Very good and professional service! I highly recommend them. I needed my car towed to the shop and called them the night before to ask if they could pick it up at a certain time the next day and DTR was here at my place on time . I even received a phone call to let me know he was in his way. I will definitely use them again in the future.

Great team at DTR. They were so helpful when Park Ave Acura "didn't complete" all the work the car needed.... I brought it right over to DTR who not only did the work in record time but offered to get an estimate for minor body work I needed while they had the car. Definitely one of the best experiences I've had with auto mechanics at a "very fair" price.

Attempted to be an at-home mechanic to hook up some lights and accessories. Learned the hard way that the engine bay in a bottomless abyss for small parts... Couldn't even drive the truck out of the driveway because of the battery disconnected with no parts. DTR went above and beyond to tow, service, and replace the missing parts. The O'Brien family had my truck returned in less than a morning at last minute's notice. Fantastic service from a local shop.

The world would be a better place if more people lived by the principles that the employees at this place apply daily. A literal angel came in and without any hesitation assisted me when I was stranded with a flat on the side of a narrow road. May all of the blessings and success come knocking family. Peace 🙏🏽

I recently had the pleasure of working with Kyle at DTR, and I have nothing but positive things to say about the experience. From start to finish, the process was smooth and easy. First and foremost, Kyle was incredibly knowledgeable about my car and able to diagnose the issue quickly. Not only that, but they were able to explain the problem to me in terms that I could understand, which I really appreciated. Once we had a plan of action, the work was completed efficiently and effectively. DTR employees kept me informed throughout the entire process, letting me know what was happening every step of the way. They even went above and beyond to make sure that everything was working properly and that I was satisfied with the work that had been done. Overall, I couldn't be happier with my experience at DTR . Kyle is an expert in their field and truly cares about their customers. I would highly recommend them to anyone in need of a trustworthy and skilled mechanic. Thanks again, kyle and DTR employees!
