Finally a Mechanic you can trust
by Tommye , 12/05/2012
I am so happy that we have found Dave to work on our car especially now that it is reaching an age where it needs more work done. Dave is honest and straight forward about what work needs to be done. He will suggest different approaches depending on what you can spend and is the best pricing I have found in town. For the first time ever I refer to someone as 'my mechanic'. We are getting ready to move out of state, but when I am back in town you can bet I will have my service booked with Dave.
Dave makes happy cars

Dave (owner of Straight Up Auto) is the man to see for auto service. I've been to several auto shops in Cville. Then after getting hosed at Pohanka Acura, I found Straight Up Auto. Dave has the expertise, he's hard-working, and he's patient (I'm clueless, yet he explains everything to me). Dave has done my Acura RSX's brakes, rotors, belt, water pump, spark plugs, oil changes, etc. And when my clutch finally goes, you can be sure I'm taking it to Straight Up Auto. Thanks Dave!
Finally, an Honest Mechanic

Dave of Straight Up Automotive is awesome. I have a couple of 1980s BMWs and consider myself an enthusiast. I'd taken my cars to several other "reputable" shops in town (which will remain unnamed) and had been very disappointed with the combination of marginal repair work, high prices, and poor customer relations. In comes Dave to save the day. He is always honest and fair. He steers me clear of unnecessary repairs and is happy to have me take a look under the car to explain what he is doing. He does things right the first time, on time, and with very reasonable prices. A good mechanic is hard to find, fortunately I no longer have to worry about that.
A rare thing...

Finding a good qualified Mechanic is not easy. I am very glad I found Dave and his shop 'Straight Up Automotive'. I would always feel nervous taking my cars in to places because you never knew what to expect and I felt most places were just pushing stuff on you that you didn't need and were priced too high.At this shop they give you exactly what their name sake says, a straight forward approach to what you 'need' and a very clear price and time frame for completion. The pricing is very fair and the work is outstanding. You are getting a very highly trained technician working on your car which is most comforting. Dave always completes his work on time and if there are any complications he always communicates those to you up front before proceeding.I highly endorse this shop.
Straight Up car and client care!

David Wolfe's STRAIGHT UP AUTOMOTIVE, is everything his business name implies!I have found him to be HONEST, CARING, CAPABLE, DETAIL ORIENTED!He looks after my car's health and asks a fair and reasonable compensation in return. I TRUST him completely to take of my car and me.
THIS IS A BUSINESS THAT KNOWS WHAT GOOD CUSTOMER SERVICE IS ALL ABOUT!

I WAS TOLD ABOUT THIS SHOP BY A FREIND. I FIRST VISITED STRAIGHT UP WHEN I NEEDED A BRAKE LIGHT SWITCH REPLACED. IT WAS IMPORTANT BECAUSE IT THAT WAS CONNECTED TO MY PUSH BUTTON IGNITION. ORIGINALLY I CALLED THE DEALER (COLONIAL NISSAN) AND THEY QUOTED ME A PRICE OF ABOUT $140 AND ON TOP OF THAT THEY SAID THAT THEY WERE HAVING A HARD TIME GETTING PARTS IN A TIMELY MANNER THAT WEEK, SO THEY WOULD CALL ME WHEN THE PART ARRIVED. I THEN TOOK MY CAR TO DAVE AT STRAIGHT UP AUTO BECAUSE I WAS REALLY HAVING A PROBLEM STARTING THE CAR. DAVE NOT ONLT TOOK THE TIME TO LOOK AT IT RIGHT WHEN I BROUGHT IT IN BUT EXPLAINED IN DETAIL WHAT WAS WRONG. HE ORDERED THE PART AT 3PM THAT DAY AND IT WAS THERE THE NEXT DAY...AND INSTALLED IN ABOUT 10 MIN. I DONT KNOW ABOUT YOU, BUT IT IS ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND GOOD CUSTOMER SERVICE AND SOMEONE THAT YOU CAN TRUST. TOTAL COST PART$ 40 LABOR $14 NEED I SAY MORE? THANKS DAVE ...COLONIAL CALLED ME 6 DAYS LATER

After taking my car elsewhere for a routine repair and being given a quote that was outrageously overpriced I contacted StraightUp. They got me into the shop, the part fixed in no time at a fair price and back on the road quickly. I have switched to them for all my auto service and can't recommend them highly enough
Bmw Repair, 6/28/11
by David Filer , 06/28/2011
I recently bought a BMW 525i from a less than reputable dealer and mechanic. I took it to other repair shops for the necessary work and was either outright lied to (thank you Crown Royal BMW of Charlottesville) or told it would be upwards of $3,500. Dave not only fixed the car for $775.00 but even took his own time to walk me through what was broken, showing me where and how to fix the various components. He obviously cares for his customers and it shows in his work and quick turnaround time (1 day, everyone else said at least 4). I am going back!
Wonderful Customer Service
by Eltonia Zeller , 06/16/2011
In the last two months, I have had several repairs completed at Straight Up Automotive. David Wolfe (Owner/Operator), offered me clear and concise information on: the initial problem with my vehicle(s), up front pricing on the repair and A+ customer service. I have really appreciated David's honesty and integrity in his field of auto repair. I will continue to use Straight Up Automotive for my car repairs.
