My car broke down on 580 East heading towards the 5 South during rush hour on a Friday afternoon. The only thing good that came out of it was AAA towed me to Dave's shop. When we called Dave, he let me know he may not be able to get the parts in time to have my car ready for the weekend, and really couldn't promise anything till he saw it. As it turned out the part needed couldn't get there until Monday morning. I was far from home and my only alternative was to stay in a hotel, and maybe rent a car the next day for the weekend. Dave really went above and beyond by driving me around Livermore at 5PM to help me find a decent place to stay. He gave me an estimate for the repairs and the car was ready as he said it would be on Monday morning. I had a lot of stuff in my car, including my favorite house plant, and Dave actually watered it for me! The final price for the completed job was slightly less than the original estimate which was a relief. Thank you, Dave, for making such a disaster on the road a little easier to take! My car made it fine during the 500 mile drive home and when I got back I followed Dave's recommendations on what should be done next. I brought his recommendations to a local mechanic here and it is just running great. Thanks again, Dave. Hopefully I won't break down again in Livermore but if I do, I know you'll take good care of me and my car!
