Here’s what some of our Niles, MI customers are saying about us:

Finally found an auto repair shop in Niles I can trust. When I spoke to Dexter I could instantly tell he was 'good people.' I immediately got the sense he genuinely cared what I thought and understood regarding my service and he wasn't trying to upsell me the first chance he could. I would have been charged a lot more for my issue if I went someplace else. That I'm sure about. But Dexter gave me the best option for the price and now my car is running great and I still have some cash left in my wallet. Thanks!!

Jason B.Dexter's Wayne Street Auto Customer Review

Dexter did exactly what he said he would do. He looked at my car and test drove it with me, listened carefully to the engine and other parts as it accelerated, made turns, slowed down, drove over bumps and gravel, and stopped and slowed down. After a few miles, he brought it back to the shop and put it on the lift to get a good look underneath. Then he told me what was wrong with the vehicle and how he had come to those conclusions. He was thorough, and gave precise, clear explanations for everything. I really appreciated that he talked with me, not at me, and that he made sure I understood what he was saying the whole time. That made me feel like I was following along and it was obvious that Dexter wanted me to feel at ease. Then he looked up prices for every repair that he was recommending. I felt cared for all the way through the process. And he drove me home and picked me up later, so I could wait for repairs to be completed in the comfort of my home. Working with Dexter and Tina was convenient and there were no surprises. I would recommend Dexter's Wayne Street Automotive without reservation or hesitation and will certainly be back!

Our family has been using Dexter's for over 10yrs....he's always been very nice, honest and he's the only person I know who's willing to work with you when your low on funds.

Valerie MessengerGoogle Review

Dexter is the most honest mechanic I have ever come across. If he can not figure out what the problem is, he will stick with it until he does and not charge you his learning time; he will not leave you hanging! Have had a couple of problems that were brain twisters and Dexter’s stuck with it until it was fixed right. I think he lost money on those jobs but was determined to fix the problem and make it right for me. He is exceptionally honest and trustworthy; a rare jewel these days.

I thought I was needing new brake pads on my car so I looked online to see where I could get quotes close to where I live.
Out of the 9 different places I called, I got the best quote from Dexter's.
I brought my car in and based on what I told Dexter, I was going to end up paying $200.00 on the low end. (This was for brake pads, hardware, a broken wheel stud and labor)
After he took everything apart he called me with very good news. It wasn't my brakes at all. The only thing I needed done was to remove the rock guard and have the new wheel stud replaced.
My bill ended up being $70.00, well below the original quote. Also, he got my car in, done and back to me the same day.
I will never go anywhere else. They are honest and efficient.

The best mechanic in michiana! I have been taking my cars there for 5 years now. If its not broke dexter will let you know. They have great rates and do amazing work. If something is wrong with your car dont even hesitate to take it to dexters. You will be very happy with the results and the price tag.

Bryan FifeGoogle Review

My car broke down when I was visiting Niles from out of town. Based on the reviews, I went with Dexter's. I became very comfortable with my choice when the tow came as the driver raved about how good a mechanic Dexter was. And even though it was a Sunday I happened to catch Dexter in the shop when I called to leave a message, and he was extremely professional and friendly. After that he kept me very well informed of what was happening with my car, having the parts shipped in and the car repaired for me by Monday afternoon. The car not only is running, but the engine is running smoother than it has for a couple of years. If I lived any where near Niles, he would be the only mechanic I used from this point on.

I have been going to Dexter for years and have always been happy. He is honest and will tell you how urgent a repair actually is instead of trying to sell you everything at one time.

Kevin BrazoGoogle Review

We've been taking our cars to Dexter for years and now our daughters go there too. There is no question that Dexter and his crew know what they are doing. His rates are really reasonable and he never suggests work that doesn't need to be done. He's 100% honest and that's hard to find in an auto mechanic.

Attentive to what the car repair issues are. Owner asked to go out with me on a test ride so I could demonstrate what happens to my transmission when it acts up. He found the problem in a short time...leak in the transmission seal emptied our fluid! Empty. Yikes. Came back for repair and happy with the outcome. No more sluggish shifting and starts. I highly recommend to Granger and South Bend people who can't find an honest shop. Simple waiting area but what do you want...reasonable price on repairs or frills? There is a TV and some seating. Check out Dexter's car club. Looks like a good deal.

I walked to downtown Niles a few blocks and killed the time while I waited for repairs.

Mary Beth G.Yelp Review

I've been a customer for 5 years and have been very pleased with the service I've received. They never try to sell you any more than you need. The brake pads I bought had a lifetime warranty and they keep those records so on my next brake job the pads were free.
I also save a lot by joining their car club.
