“Decided to give these guys a try. Wow they are way better than the dealer! Duane treated me like a guest in his home! He didn’t try to sell me something I didn’t need employees were very friendly! This repair shop is the true dealer alternative to Lexus of Clearwater!” Review by David Simons / Google
“My coworker told me about Duane’s auto for my Lexus. Well last week my check engine light came on and I popped in to meet with the people at Duane’s . They took a look at my car right away and found that I didn’t secure my fuel cap. They secured the cap and turned the light off. I was expecting to pay the $90 diagnostic fee but was told with a smile that I was good to go! I couldn’t get this kind of service at Lexus that’s for sure.” Review by Chris Simms / Google

“I needed to replace a headlight ASAP, so I tried to get an appt. at 2 dealership service centers for my Toyota Venza. Not having any luck, I decided it was the perfect time to see if Duane’s could get the job done. Not only was he happy to take care of it, it was a non- stressful experience & everyone was so friendly. I’m happy to have found great service for my Toyota & will not be going back to the overpriced dealership service centers!” Review by Susan Najour / Google
“Duane and his team have been fabulous to our family! With 2 older cars, we’ve been in for multiple repairs in the last 3 years. Whether the repairs have been small or significant, Duane and crew have consistently delivered high quality work for a fair price. While he is an expert with Toyota and Lexus, he’s also been top-notch with our Ford and Subaru. The other reviews mention Duane’s honesty, and we agree completely! Duane is a good guy who has our business for life.” Review by Katie McLain / Google

“Duane’s Dealer Alternative is absolutely the place to go. The name of the business says it all. I have been using their services for over 3 years now. I couldn’t be happier. They are very professional. Along with being honest and providing a great service at a great price. I would not take my vehicles anyplace else. 5 stars for sure.” Review by Dustin Myers / Google
“I’ve always felt like I have gotten an honest answer from them and never been steered wrong. I drive a 2004 Toyota Tundra and from what Duane has told me the brakes will squeak with the humidity and as long as you don’t mind the sound the brakes are in great shape. I have never had a mechanic tell me this in the past. I’ve been talking with him a lot about getting a Prius, I can’t wait to make the purchase I know it will be a smooth transaction.” Review by Dane Lynch / Google
“Best shop around. Super honest staff that know what they are doing. So hard to find a trustworthy car repair shop. VERY glad we found them.” Review by Matthew H / Google
“I wouldn’t use anyone else. They treat my cars as if they were theirs.” Review by Mike Cohen / Google
“I’ve had both my Lexus vehicles serviced here since Duane opened. Duane and his staff are great communicators, honest and straight-forward. The most reputable mechanic I’ve ever worked with. I doubt I will ever have my vehicles serviced anywhere else because Duane has earned my trust and then some. If you are looking for good work that is fair and reasonably priced, look no further. This is it!” Review by Roman Lombardi / Google
“Duane’s Dealer Alternative is the most honest and reliable repair shop I’ve ever had the pleasure dealing with. I had a lot of work done to my Lexus RX330 after my son had neglected it for a couple of years. Very reasonable price and done a day early. I’ve used Duane previously for my maintenance and he’s always done a great job and a lot more reasonable than taking to the dealer.” Review by Wendy Bowman / Google
“Been using Duane’s Dealer Alternative for years for service on my Toyotas. Was giving dealer the opportunity to keep my business with my Subaru until they told me it needed a bunch of work & charged me $140. Had Duane give 2nd opinion & he validated their findings & this is really where the story begins. Telling him I didn’t want to sink any more money into the car, Duane says he can find me a replacement as he is a licensed broker. Not only did he hook me up with a fantastic replacement vehicle, he sold my Subaru for me as well. The best car buying & selling experience ever! Truly a one-stop shop. The name says it all… Duane’s DEALER ALTERNATIVE” Review by Brad Whitney / Google
“Duane’s Dealer Alternative is where I recommend all of my friends go in Tampa Bay. Even if you don’t have a Toyota or Lexus, DDA offers the most reliable, reasonable & honest service. We have been taking our vehicles to Duane for several years and I won’t go anywhere else. Thanks Duane & Kimberly!” Review by Jan Decatur / Google
“Duane always fixes it right the first time” Review by Scott Davidson / Google
“Fast, reliable, and affordable. Duane is straight forward and to the point like the other review said. There customer service was great. The girl in the office was very helpful and understanding. It couldn’t have been easier to get my car repaired considering I had my 2 year old son with me too. They were very accommodating. I’d recommend them.” Review by Christian Spolar / Google

“I was having intermittent problems with the air-conditioning on my 2006 Suburu Outback that my regular mechanic couldn’t diagnose. After about 10 minutes it would just blow ambient air. Dealer repair estimate: over $1800. Dwayne replaced a relay. Total bill for parts and labor was $110. The air-conditioning has been running great for over a week now. Great experience – I would trust Dwayne to repair my car ANY TIME!” Review by Roni Flowers / Google
“Strait forward, to the point, honest service for a reasonable price. First time i had service here, he saved me over a grand. I’m so happy with Duane’s service I made sure he worked on Hondas first before I purchased my wife’s car. I would recommend this shop to anyone with a lexus, toyota, acura or honda.” Review by EJ Buzzella / Google
“I can’t say enough about their expert services and professionalism” Review by Jim Sessions / Google

YELP Reviews for Duane’s Dealer Alternative

“I needed an oil change for the Lexus and wanted nothing to do with either Lexus of Clearwater orTampa after some bad experiences. After doing some research on several review sites Duane’s kept coming up as a positively reviewed Lexus specialist. While all I needed was an oil change, in the grander scheme of things I was really searching for a trustworthy service shop for all my future needs. Finding true qualified professionals who are honest, priced fairly, and do what they say is a near impossibility. The gentleman servicing my vehicle was a long time Lexus technician and knows the brand inside and out. Full synthetic oil change, done in under an hour, at a fair price. They service Lexus vehicles from oil changes to major engine overhauls. I think I’ve found a new home for my Lexus service needs. Very professional and pleasant to deal with. Why can’t all service shops behave this way???” Review by Gaijin S. from Tampa, FL / YELP
“Duane and David are the best in the business, these guys have combined over 30+ years as mechanics. They specialize in Lexus but they work on just about anything. I took my car to Lexus to get normal maintenance done in the dealership quoted me $1200 after I took it to Duane the total price out the door was $415.00!!!! Not only do they do good work but in my opinion which is the most important part when dealing with any auto mechanic is they’re very honest, truthful and they communicate extremely well with their customers. If you need work done to your car look no further! You’ve found your mechanic for life.” Review by Jon G. from Forsyth County, GA / YELP
