Pot holes and tire problems?


Will Crawford
I have used many service shops in my day and it's always the same thing... questioning if I'm really getting a good deal or if they really know what they are talking about. At Dales I have had nothing but good experiences and honesty. Everyone is on the same page, the communication is excellent, and honesty! I recommend Dales 110% to anyone that needs any automotive services.
Izaiah Sams
Dale's Service center was beyond helpful they are the first auto place in the quad cities who has not only been extremely helpful in talking me through the issue with my car and speaking to me with respect because I am not great with cars and they understood that. They also work with you and don't charge an arm and a leg. I will be going to them with problems on my vehicle in the future and I highly recommend them as well.
Thank you Izaiah for a great review. I'm glad we could meet your vehicle's needs and be price competitive. -Chad Jacks

The front counter and mechanic were great! They provided exceptional customer service from start to finish! My car was still clean when I picked it up! Most service places return your vehicle with some funk on your steering wheel & armrest, not Dale's! I will keep bringing my Volvo to them as long as I own it! They even took pictures and pointed out some issues with a past oil change! THANK YOU again for the outstanding service!
Wow, R.M. we are blushing a little bit here. Thank you for trying us and look forward to helping you out anytime your vehicle needs service.
Jimmie Spahr
Brought my Park Ave to them after another shop here in town could not fix it after two weeks.!!! Dropped it at Dales on Sunday and had my car done and ready to go on Thursday mourning.!! Very professional and I highly recommended Dale's Service Center.
Thank you Jimmie, glad we could get you back on the road.
David Carroll
I could ask for better service, I am impressed with their honesty . I found Dales one of the most decent business I I have had the pleasure to deal with since I relocated to Iowa.
Thank David! So glad the service met your expectations. See you next oil change.


Doug M.

Oberbroeckling Family
Tim and the staff at Dale's Service Center are always very helpful. My daughter is away at school in Ames and recently had car trouble. I called Tim for advice on where to take the car to get fixed in Ames. Somewhere we could trust. Tim was very helpful in finding a repair shop in Ames. He even went as far as calling them in advance to give them a heads up. Thank you Tim for taking the time to take care of our vehicles even when they are in Ames and not being repaired at your shop. This is the extra mile that Dale's Service Center will go to help their customers. I would recommend them to anyone! Daron
Thanks Daron! I appreciate your trust and faith in us! Glad we could help.

I have been taking my vehicles to Tim at Dale's for almost 10 years now and have never had any problems. As a matter of fact I have recommended him to many of my friends. Tim is a class act. He's always been very accommodating and takes extra time to explain the problems and how he's going to fix them. Tim has sourced parts for me and has also installed parts that I found for myself. He's worked on some tricky issues that took some digging to figure out, but he kept going until he found the problem. If you're looking for a quality shop that knows how to treat it's customers, Dale's is the place to go. Tim and his crew will always be on the top of my list for auto shops. Thanks for the years of great service Tim!

My husband and I have been going to Dale's for over a decade. This shop has great service and does high quality work.
Melissa Hintze
My Husband and I have been taking our cars to Dale's for over 10 years. They always exceed our expectations and we are always quick to recommend them. When we get a quote or take our cars in for service we know we will get honest service at a fair price. It's so nice to be able to trust the people you take your car to.
Chris Seberg
When I moved to the Quad City Area, one of the first things I searched for was a service center that had a great reputation for being honest, affordable and capable of performing all of the service I need to have done on my vehicles. After asking numerous people for a recommendation, Dale's Service Center was at the top of the list. Everyone at Dale's has been great to work with whether it is quick diagnosis, providing transportation when needed or high quality service. I am certain that I have been given honest and affordable service and will continue to use Dale's Service exclusively while recommending them to others. Keep up great work Dale's!!!!
Dave S.
Weve used Dales for nearly a decade and have always been extremely happy with the work. Even though weve moved from the QC area, we often bring our car back to Dales for the quality work the shop does and the honesty they display. Most important to me is that Tim, the owner, gives honest advice on what work is really needed, when it will be done, and how much it will cost.
Cory N.
Definitely the most excellent service I have had from a service shop. Very professional, answered my questions in a timely manner and got my vehicle in on the spot. Thank you so much Dales
Awesome Cory! Thank you for the nice review. I'm super happy to hear that you were treated well! I appreciate your trust and faith in us! -Tim Shaffer
Dan G.
The service advisor was really polite and professional. The shop was really clean and well kept.
Greer Clemons
This place is great! After a terrible experience with another company in town, Dales was very professional and had very fair prices. I will be going back to them for all of my car repair needs.

Whether you need an oil change, brake repair, or transmission service our certified technicians are equipped with the knowledge and experience to get the job done right the first time.

If you have been searching for "auto repair near me" and are in the Davenport area, chances are you are looking for a service center that specializes in car repair. Perhaps your car, truck, or SUV won't start, or you have noticed a strange sound that has you concerned. Maybe a light has appeared on your dash and you aren't sure if you should be worried.

Transmission repair and brake service are other areas where our technicians excel. As with any type of equipment, the components of your vehicle won't last forever. Proper maintenance of your transmission can prevent more serious issues. When damage has already been done, we provide transmission service for automatic and manual transmissions which may involve replacing parts or external seals, or doing a little adjustment.

Oil Changes, Brake Service, Transmission Repair and More

When brake hoses, pads, or calipers need to be replaced our brake service is second to none. Most of us never give much thought to the brakes, but imagine the scene if they were to completely fail you. Our team performs brake fluid flushes, pad/shoe replacement, rotor resurfacing, and more to make sure you can stop on a dime if need be. Come see our team of experts the moment you suspect there is a problem with your brakes!

Car suspension is basically all of the things that connect your vehicle to its wheels, making it possible to handle and move easily - linkages, springs, shock absorbers, tires, etc. If your car rides roughly, pulls when you make a turn, or shows evidence of uneven wear on tire treads, it may be time to have the suspension checked.

At Dale's Service Center we treat our customers the way we would expect to be treated in the same situation. Our friendly car repair technicians give you the personal attention you deserve whether you need an oil change, brake repair, or transmission service.
