Best car buying experience I had in years. I called about the car I was interested in, set the time to stop by and see it, test drove it, agreed on price and in an hour I was out of the door with my ride. Definitely stop by and check them out you won’t be disappointed. Thank you DTD on your great service.

The service department has gotten very disappointing over the last few years. Just had an expensive repair due to a dirty engine filter. Was pointed out needing to be replaced AFTER my oil change a couple of months ago. Tried to bring it in two Saturdays ago after setting an appointment over the phone to also have the breaks replaced. Left after being told it would be over 3 hours. On Saturday this past weekend I had set an online appointment for 8 am the day before. When I got there there was no record in the system of my appointment. I even had my confirmation printout.

I needed a set of aftermarket sideskirts painted asap and an estimate on some minor body work.Messaged T&K on Facebook only to get an immediate reply back on a Saturday morning.They asked if I could bring the car and parts within the hour, and I Did.My First Impression was already beyond my expectations.The Guys at T&K are Personable, Professional, and a Highly experienced.I left my Sideskirts there on Saturday late afternoon, they were painted and ready to be picked up by Monday afternoon.The quality and paint match are spot on!The Price was very reasonable, but the Customer Service was the best part.Not like your standard assembly line bodyshop.These guys introduced themselves one by one with a hand shake, explained exactly what they could do to fix the car, and gave me an unbeatable estimate.Needless to say, T&K gained my trust, and The car is going in for a cosmetic refresh in two weeks.

I got into a car accident and did not know what to do. I went to two other shops that we're going to charge me over $1,800 to fix the car, I found Tito online on Facebook and he said he can help me no matter what, as being a single female going to any mechanic I'm very skeptical because a lot of shops take advantage of the fact that I'm a female. I had the car towed to his shop and he told me that he can do it for $1,000 .it's hard to believe because two other shops wanted to charge me so much more. he told me he would have the car fixed in a week and called me during the week to let me know the status of the vehicle. Exactly one week later one of his workers came and pick me up he brought me to the car and it looked absolutely amazing. I cannot believe that he fix the car, I am very grateful for Tito and the Gang for fixing the only thing I have left of my grandmother who recently passed away. If you want to have your car fixed perfect and an update as the progress progresses then bring your car to Tito tell him Alicia sent you and he will take good care of you..god bless

My car burst into flames three hours after I bought my car. Me and my son were in the car moments before it caught fire. The owners refuse to give me a refund, replacement or even a real apology. DO NOT BUY YOUR CAR HERE!!!!

Discovery Auto Service
Was told by Bruce the manager.. If you take down all your reviews and complaints.. WE will help you. Negative.. The help never happened and therefore everything is going up!!All the complaints, all the reviews.. and what's to come!"Bad Deal"Sold a vehicle with major issues. Have sent all this information to the state attorney as well. On December 13,2016 Purchased an Audi 2011 from Discovery auto Center which is located in Tampa Florida. The day I purchased this vehicle the check engine light on and I was told that eventually it would go away. On December 15,2016 vehicle was brought to tires plus due to a tire that was about to explode. Apparently the side tire had a seal in it. The sealed tire was replaced. Tire did not match the other tires, but was replaced by discovery auto center. Check engine light remained on till I took it to tires plus. I took the vehicle to tires plus on (01-20-217) and received the worst news ever. The car needed all new tires, tires were all bold. Tune up. (Was never given one) spark plugs. Alignment, oil change and to top it off, car was leaking gas. When tires plus did the check of where it was leaking gas, the discovery was - the oil gasket and panel had to be replaced which cost over 1000 dollars. I immediately called Discovery auto and they told me they couldn't really do anything. I got in contact with my sales rep Milo and he told me to bring car in. I brought car in on (2-03-2017) and was told that I had to leave the vehicle at the shop because it was un-drivable. Car was at the shop for 2 weeks getting repaired. Per the mechanic, everything involving the oil was replaced. Picked up the car after two weeks on (Feb13,2017)and within (2) days car was back at the shop for halting and sounds. Hose was broken and never replaced which Discovery Auto center charged me for. Took it to Tires Plus and got that fixed. Even after the major repair, (have receipts) car was still leaking and was told that it was drainage from the past leak. (I have my receipt for that as well)In the next couple of weeks, car had been making tough noises. I immediately called discovery mechanic and was told that it's a rough car and that the noise would go away. Noise is still there- has been there. Now - August 25,2017 - rattling has been added to the noise, took of up tires plus and the noise is there because it's been diagnosed with needing a motor. The whole job will cost over 15,000 to get it repaired. Car was purchased at 62,175 miles and currently has 67,100 miles.. Car has not been driven due to all the issues it came with.

Tips & Advices
Ceramic brake pads are made from dense, durable ceramic. They are favored for their relative silence while driving compared to metal or organic brake pads. They also have little wear and tear on the overall brake system and are very reliable. However, they are more expensive than metal or organic brake pads. Additionally, their performance deteriorates in extreme driving conditions.
Brake rotors typically last between 30,000 and 70,000 miles.
Brake shoes are used in drum brakes--rather than disc brakes--which is the original braking system designed for vehicles. Just as brake pads are the friction component of disc brakes, brake shoes are the friction component of drum brakes. When the brakes are applied, a wheel cylinder pushes the brake shoe against the brake drums, which spin while the vehicle is in motion, and causes the vehicle to stop.
A squeaking or squealing sound when applying newly replaced brakes is normal. It comes from the rotor vibrating against the new brake pads. It should quiet down after about 250 miles, and should be more or less silent by 750 miles, when the brake system has had some time to synchronize itself.
This depends on the car, the brake system, and the car owner's driving habits. Typically, a car's brakes should be replaced after about 50,000 miles, but some car's brakes may last anywhere from 25,000 to 70,000 miles. Car owners shouldn't wait for a magic number to replace their brakes. They should check them regularly, and pay close attention if they hear any weird noises or if the car feels shaky while braking. Brakes are a critical safety component of a car, so it's important to stay on top of brake maintenance.
