Our Story — David’s Automotive Repair

A Letter From Our Owner

”For you to understand the culture we’ve built at David’s Automotive Repair, you first need to understand my story.

Since I was 14, I’ve been in the service industry. It’s what I’ve known for most of my life, and it all started at my Dad’s business. I’d work there throughout the rest of my time in school and I began to work on the vehicle’s the company used, which sparked my passion for automotive repair. Although I enjoyed working for my Dad, I wanted to do more, and I did so when I joined the US Navy Submarine Force in 1979. For the next 20 years, I proudly served and defended my country until I retired in 1999.

Once I retired, I began working in the automotive repair industry and even started teaching classes for it at a local career school. After I moved to Texas, I wanted to continue my passion for fixing cars and serving people. This, along with my success and my wife, Sharon, led to what you now know as David’s Automotive Repair!

At David’s Automotive Repair, we pride ourselves in providing you with high-quality services at a great value. If you’re tired of shops meeting minimum expectations and want a team that focuses on building personal, transparent relationships, know that our shop is only a phone call away.”
