Dave's is a awesome place for servicing and repairing all my vehicles AAA+++

.

I had my car repaired in Dave's Palisades on Sept 11, 2013. It was engine light on indicating Catalytic Converter needed to be replaced. This has happened before, so I told Dave (the son) to check the exhaust system carefully, to see if it was the CAT or something else. At first, Dave quoted me $400 for replacing the CAT, about $250 replacing the 2 tires. I thought the quotes were reasonable, so I also asked him to go ahead to replace the air filters but did not ask for the quote for that part. The first day when my car was there, they told me they checked the car, it was not the CAT, it was a vault connecting to the CAT which costs only $10 for the part. All together fixing the exhaust system was less than $200. So I thought "great". Next day, when I went to pick up my car, Dave handed a bill of nearly $1600. The CAT cost nearly $800, the Vault cost nearly $300, AND, there was an diagnostic fee of about $170. I asked why he charged me so much for the CAT since he quoted only $400 early. He said he replaced a California CAT. But, he did not tell me he was going to do that, also did not let me know the estimate of $800! No warning at all for the diagnostic fee either!! The quote for fixing the vault was way off too!! I said this is a lot of money, he said, "We this time actually fixed your problem. The previous people did not. Your car is going to run for a long time." Well, I trusted him, so paid and left. Only after couple weeks, my husband noticed the car could not up to speed going up hill couple times. I seldom drive the car, did not notice it. About 4 weeks later, the car could not run over 25 m/h uphill. Since we just moved, and we thought it was the transmission problem, I waited until Oct 23rd to have the car checked in a transmission place. But it turned out to be the Catalytic Converter. So I went back to Dave, they said it was the rear CAT this time, need $500 to fix me. I requested them to fix at no cost because of their promise my car "was going to run for a long time", and they claimed they fixed the exhaust system, and overcharged last time. They said no. When I called back to ask to talk to the owner-the father of Dave, Dave the son said he was the owner. I said he sounded the same, he said, "We got that a lot. " After couple minutes talking, he admitted that he was not the father/owner. I certainly do not recommend this place to anyone. Dishonest, bad quality service.

This used to be my number one gas station. The prices were awesome, people incredibly friendly and on it was on my way to work.

However the other day I had horrible experience that will make me never want to go back. It was raining pretty hard and I noticed my wipers weren't doing so hot. I also noticed they had blades for sell. I asked how much they were, and they told me they could do it real quick right then and there. Great! Well apparently no one knew how to put it on, and about 15 minutes later and several tries (by everyone working) it was finally done. And then it ended up being 4 dollars more than I was originally told. Not a big deal, but slightly annoying.

So I take off, and I get about a mile away when the left blade just flies off. It was raining so hard I couldn't see, so had to stick my head out the window as I drove back to the station. I had been going about 50mph when the blade flew off so it was long gone.

When I got back to the station, I pleasantly pointed out what happened. They were so incredibly rude about it- and grudingly fixed it. At first they didn't think they could cause they had lost a part or something, but finally about twenty minutes in they got it. I understand mistakes happen, but their attitude when I really was being very nice about it, was uncalled for. When one guy finally fixed it he told me to "try it", and then walked away. No "have a nice day" or anything. when i said thank you out of habit he completely ignored me. I get maybe they couldn't offer me a refund, but maybe a sincere apology or at least not acting like it was my fault would have been better. I will never go back

I have been a long time customer of Dave's Palisades service, and have nothing but GREAT things to say about their customer service. Dave and his crew have been there through many cars, and it feels like "family" for a reason...that is how they treat you.
I will go out of my way to get gas there, as my loyalty is that strong.

I have been a long time customer at Dave's but when their little hand held debit/credit mechine malfunctioned and charged my account twice I was livid with the end result. After 10 days of waiting for a refund, that I was told I would receive and dealing with Shawn the owner he told me they only hit my account once and that it was the banks error...I provided all my personal info to this business and not to mention years of service only to get screwed over. We will never go back, YOUR LOSS!!!!!

I have been all over the PDX area and I have found Dave's Palisades to be the best for one stop shop for my automotive needs. Unbeatable pump island service and Xlnt repair.
Thank You guys @ Dave's Palisades.

I'll never forget that during the outrageously ridiculous, historic gas prices of summer 2008, there came a time in the late fall when prices started to come down and they went way out of the way to drop the price of gas to something like 1.50 a gallon just to help people out. I will drive way out of my way to visit them because they also have great service.

Pros: Outstanding price for gas and great service

This place is great, you pull up the are polite. They ask you if you would like your windows cleaned. This is just a great place to get gas. Today they even told us they were glad we stopped by. It is very hard to find this kind of service anywhere today.

I love this place. One time I rolled in late after closing and someone was still there and still gave me gas. It's such a sweet gas station! Everyone there is so nice.

Most gas stations these days are all about moving cars through as fast as possible. Dave's Palisades is still about service. When you pull in, they head over to fill your tank, wash your windows, and check your fluids. They offer honest opinions of potential problems. They are a great neighborhood gas station.
