Here’s what some of our Albuquerque, NM customers are saying about us:


My family and I have taken our cars to this shop for years. We consistently receive A+ service, and we can always count on them for fair, ethical, diligent work.

Chris Cordova Google Review


They have worked on my two mercedes (SL and E) and two BMWs (X5 diesel and gas) and they are far more competant than the dealers, as well as cheaper and friendly. They fixed an EGR problem on the X5 that puzzled dealers in two states. The car was a lemon purchase buyback from the CA dealer because they could not fix the problem. Dan's son fixed it. Would not take my german cars anywhere else.

Daniel Rondeau Google Review


Dan is knowledgeable about Porsches. He is straightforward, easy to work with and expedient. We put off having our clutch looked at because we dreaded the process, but Dan diagnosed the problem quickly and accurately, plus he had the parts in the next day. Finding a quality mechanic is worth its weight in gold. We're thrilled to finally have one in Dan.

Katie Fitter Google Review


Driving from Ontario Canada to San Diego, CA with my daughter when our 1989 VW Westfalia lost her clutch...I should have made a left @ Albuquerque! In a panic my daughter googled VW specialist and Dan's number popped up! She spoke with Garrett, told him the situation and the situation. He said he would call us back if he could source the part. He did. We still had hours to drive that day, so we asked if he could give us priority in the queue. He did. Throw in a power outage for good measure and we were still on the road 5 hours after we broke down. Best for last...he quoted us LESS than he charged us!! Thanks Garrett!!

Sincerely,
Rose, Shannon (and Blubarie)

I recently moved to ABQ from the east coast and was looking for a good auto service center for my Audi. Dan's Automotive turned out to be a great option.

Excellent service, friendly staff, and they even did the work for about 30% less than what the dealer quoted me.

Will definitely be coming back here in the future.

Arthur McDonald Google Review


Dan's is an up front mechanic that knows his German cars forwards and backwards. He treats everyone with respect and seems happy to explain why a specific service is needed.

All the latest computer equipment is in the shop so he can handle even the new fangled BMW and Mercedes.

This is one of the few honest shops in ABQ. If you're having problems with your German car this is the place to go.

Ronjo C. Google Review


I've taken my BMW to the dealer and gotten the run around and the hard sell. Not at Dan's! These guys are honest and they know their stuff! They were able to quickly and accurately diagnose the problem on my 325Ci and fix it. In the process, they found that I had a water pump on the verge of failure and saved me a headache later. They will recommend preventative maintenance, but will not try to sell you something you don't need. After they fixed my car, they even showed me the parts they'd replaced and demonstrated what was wrong with them. Dan's Automotive is where I'll take my BMW from now on.

Michael Kear Google Review


On a road trip from Houston to Portland in my 2002 330ci, the check-engine-light came on and the engine provided inconsistent power and even shut off a few times.

Not wanting to risk being stranded during a long leg of driving in the desert, I looked up reputable mechanics in the area and found Dan's.

Garrett, Dan's son and one of the head technicians, picked up the phone. After hearing my story, he made some time the next morning to meet.

After looking at the codes, Garrett saw the the engine was 'running lean' and ran a smoke test. He cleaned the tubes and replaced the crank shaft valve. They also replaced my air intake sensor which was reading the volumes incorrectly.

From there, my car ran well and never shut off for the next 19 hours of driving. This relieved our stress along the road trip.

Beyond fixing the problem which was complicated, they get 5-stars because of the level of customer care, knowledge of the problem, and attention to detail. Garrett did a thorough computer diagnostic of the car and walked me through what the readings meant and provided me options. They were honest and didn't scare or tell me I HAD to do anything. I've worked with some amazing and also not-so-great mechanics from LA to Houston, and I could tell that Dan's is a top-notch place with authentic folks who know what they're doing.

The owner, Dan, even gave me a free ride back to the hotel and recommended I check our Sandia peak while waiting. It was a good day in Albuquerque.

And as follow-up, Garrett gave me his card and offered to transfer knowledge to my next mechanic once I made it to Portland for some other issues that weren't as pressing. I def appreciate this since I am a customer just driving through.

Thank you Dan's Automotive!

Excellent service! The people here were very nice and the service was fast. I will definitely come back here in the future. Thank you so much

Chance Canfield Dan's Automotive Customer Review


If you are looking for an honest no nonsense auto repair shop for your German vehicle then look no further. Dan's is a family operated repair shop that specializes in Mercedes, BMW, Audi, and Porsche, but can service and repair any car. I have been taking my 2005 BMW 645ci to Dan's for repair over the last 3 years and I have always been treated wonderfully. Don't get burned by the stealership like I did. Dan's team will quickly identify the root of your cars problem and fix it in a timely manner. If you need a ride to work or home, they will take you and pick you up when repairs are complete.

Michael Mauldin Dan's Automotive Customer Review


These guys are the ultimate professionals. I took my Audi A4 Quattro took Audi because of oil problems and all they wanted to do was top it off. Later my camshaft seized, and Audi wanted a lot to fix it. I told them that there was a lawsuit against them about a defect with my car losing oil. Still fighting Audi, I decided to take it to Dan's, they fixed my car and found the source of my oil issue, an oil pressure sensor that was leaking only while driving. Thanks Dan.

Reymundo Rael Google Review


My VW TDI overheated on the highway and I needed it fixed asap to get back on the road. Pulled up to Dan's Auto right when they opened as I saw online they work on VW diesels. Glad I found them as they were amazing. Within an hour they had the problem diagnosed, part ordered, and car ready to roll again. The other shops and dealership wanted me to wait four days, Dan took care of it day of. If you want over the top service and great work at a fair price, this is your place. Highly recommended!

Taylor Fife Google Review


Stellar Audi service, took my car to Dan's directly from the Audi Dealership Service Dept. in ABQ. I cannot say enough great things about Garret and Dan, absolutely THE BEST service I have ever received. They diagnosed my multiple Audi problems, came in at half the price of the ABQ Audi Dealership and my car was done in a day. Amazing! (This, after my Audi sat at the Audi dealership for over 3 weeks.) There is no better service than Dan's Automotive. Every business should be run like this! I can't say enough positive things about Dan & Garret and the service and workmanship they provided. Thank you so much! Your newest loyal customer . . . Lynda

I was driving across country. Luckily my break down happened by these guys. Garrett fixed my vacuum line in no time. It's hard to find a guy who knows Sprinters. Super nice! Thanks!

Joey F Google Review


Definitely recommend. Great service and very reasonable. I was just passing through town and my water pump went out. I am glad to have found Dan's when I did. They had me back on the road in no time. Thanks guys!!

Taken my Benz to Dan, Garrett and the boys at Dan's for 10 years...always get really good work and a fair price!!!

Kris Scoumperdis Dan's Automotive Customer Review


I highly recommend Dan's Automotive because they are knowledgeable, ethical, competent, and honest. I trust Dan's Automotive to do excellent work and give me truthful and reliable information about my car. I trust this shop because they have earned it time and again. They will not sell me what I do not need. I prefer Dan's Automotive instead of the dealer.

Margaret S. Dan's Automotive Customer Review


We just moved here from Atlanta & I was apprehensive about finding quality auto care. I'm so glad that I found Dan's! Not only can they take care of our Mercedes they can also take care of our Ford Explorer. Not only do they know what they are doing mechanically but they understand how to provide great customer service as well. Thanks for taking such excellent care of us and our cars!!!!!

Brenda T. Dan's Automotive Customer Review


I've been going to Dan's for over 10 years and in fixing my '85 Mercedes there is no other firm in ABQ that can compete. The cost, personal service and promptness is unsurpassed.

Maxim S. Yelp Review


Don't worry about taking your car to these guys! You will get the best price and they do a fantastic job. I have a 2010 BMW and hit some debris in the road which dislodged my oil pump and blowing the engine. Towed it to the BMW dealer which was $26,000 for a new engine or $8,000 for a used engine with 116K miles on it! No way to either of those options. I took it to Dan's and they found an engine with 33K miles on it and replaced it for $6,400. When the engine blew it knocked out the O2 sensors in the exhaust which caused the check engine light to come on. They let me get the sensors online, which was much cheaper than the dealer and they installed them for free. I was also getting an error on the halo lights as well so they replaced them too. I am so happy with the job they did and the car is running better than before. I am so happy to find a good mechanic in town that beats everyone's price and does an amazing job. They do everything from oil changes to engine replacement which was needed in my case.

Glad I found this place!
After dealing with poor customer service and high
prices at the dealership in Austin, it is so nice to have
a friendly place to take my Audi.
They are always ready to help and are really patient with
all of my maintenance questions.

Coleen V. Yelp Review


Bought an older VW, Dan tuned her up and got her going again.
Definetely the place to get your import fixed

Rye B. Yelp Review


My BMW started missing. This usually means start peeling off thousand dollar bills.

I decided to try Dan's mainly for closeness. They got me right in, gave me a ride home, called with a fairly low estimate in a few hours, and called back a few hours later saying that it was done for what they'd quoted. I picked it up in the morning, and it ran like new.

I believe that the place I took it to before would have charged twice as much and tried to sell more work and taken a week.

I will go back here the next time I need work because they treated me right. They've been around for about 30 years and have kept the biz in the family, father to son.

I like the feeling of not being gouged.

Phil S. Yelp Review


Dan's is a family owned business that specializes in German automobiles. They work on Mercedes, BMW, Audi, and Porsche, but can service and repair any car out there. These guys are no-nonsense, and honest mechanics that will not try to sell you parts and work you do not need. They have been servicing quality autos for over twenty years and they are very professional. I needed a ride to work in the morning and the owner's son was quick to get me there. Apparently, they realize that I have a job to do as well. They looked my car over thoroughly and made sure it was ready for the long trip to Austin. I had taken my Beemer into another place a few months ago and they wanted me to replace the oil and transmission pans costing about $1500.00! When I asked Dan's about this they told me that I could do that if I wanted, but instead they haver other options that were less expensive but would do the job just as well. They would rather be straight with me than win a sale. They were done with everything within a couple of hours and called me to say they could pick me up anytime. 15 minutes later I was back in my car. They reminded me that I would probably need my brakes done in the next 5,000 miles and that I should let them know when I was ready so they could have the parts ready when I wanted them done. These guys were really great, a real breath of fresh air and not snooty like the dealership can be. I highly recommend them to anyone with a German auto, or anything for that matter!

Jonathan B. Yelp Review


Dan's Automotive is top notch. They're always honest and reliable. I've referred several friends and family members and they've all been very happy with the service they've received.

David Peabody Google Review


I took my 2007 VW Touareg V10 TDI to Dan's because the engine unexpectedly lost power. The drive train is complicated, over-engineered, and incredibly difficult to service. It turned out that both turbos needed to be replaced, which required dropping the engine. Dan's Automotive did a great job. They were very responsive, honest, friendly, and quick. They didn't charge me anything for the initial diagnostic and literally saved me thousands compared to the repair quote I got from the local dealership. It's hard to find an honest, high-quality repair shop, and I highly recommend Dan's!

Nate Fellers Google Review


Dan automotive is a very honest place. They will not jerk you around and sell you things you don't need. Dan has built his business with honesty and integrity. You don't have to cheat people when you are honest, they will come to you for a reason.

Great job repairing my cars and my family's cars.
