I convinced myself I needed a $1,000 clutch rebuild and was informed that I only needed a $130 U-Joint. I told them to replace the other 3 if needed and they told me that it was not necessary. That is 3 chances to upsell me or take advantage of my ignorance and they "didn't" take it. That kind of trust is rare these day. I have called everyone I know in Minnesota and asked them to switch mechanics. 100% satisfied PERIOD. Thank you and all the boys in the shop.

I have been bringing my vehicles to DT AR for seven plus years. My last experience has been the best so far. Derrick pointed out problems that my vehicle was having and acted as my trusted advisor, and even suggested a dealer that turned out to be a great experience. The day after Derrick called me to check in and see if I had found a a car. I will continue do business with the folks at Dakota transmission and auto repair for years to come. I appreciate Derrick's honesty and candor

Derek took the time to make sure it was done right and that I was completely satisfied. He didn't mind talking with me to make sure I understand what he was doing when asked about any part of the process. You can tell he loves his job and helping his customers. He has great knowledge and seems like he researches to keep up with the changing technology.

As always, had a great experience. Done in a timely fashion. Checked the tires for wear and if time for rotation, it was not. So left with only the cost of an oil change. While waiting, engaged in great conversation.

Thank Andrew and Derek.

DT&AR was able to diagnosis and repair a fuel problem that I was having with my Ford Five Hundred. Turn around time on the repair was minimal. Thanks guys!!

These guys have been taking care of my cars for the last 14 years. they are considered, honest, and respectful. they fix only whats needs to be fixed and inform you of other items. Also, when I ask them to fix something, they will kindly tell me that it does not need fixing and will not take advantage. So I took my Dad's car and the results were the same. thank you.

Great work as always with the car ready for pickup early.

Keep the coupons coming. Always nice to save a couple bucks on basic maintenance.

Stellar job - always love working with the guys at Dakota - from Terry and Bud, all the way up to Dakota Xmission, GenII (i.e. - Derek). I am confident the work was done thoroughly and correctly, with the highest level of integrity.
