Dale’s Service Center is now TMT Automotive South Bend

The keys to Dale’s Service Center have been passed down to Mike and Tony Tatich of TMT Automotive. TMT has two other locations, one in Granger and the other in Bremen- this South Bend location will be their third. After years of hard work Dale was happy to hand the keys over and start his retirement. Dale sees dedication to quality in the new shop owners, who have been shop owners since 1984.

I was actually directed to this shop when the one I initially went they couldn’t address the exploded spark plug in my engine. I was so relieved to walk in and find a friendly face at the counter, (Sophie of course) but they promptly took a look at my car, identified the problem and gave me a quote all within an hour. Their quote was on par with what work was required and they were more than fair on their labor charges. When I came to pick up the vehicle Monday morning I was greeted kindly by Jackie and given my vehicle in working condition and sounding much better than it had when I brought it in. Point is, this shop has earned my continued future patronage for vehicle maintenance.

The mechanics are very competent. Dale’s Service stands behind their work. Having had a horrible experience at Gates I could not be happier with Dale’s Service. I took two cars. Both cars are older. Also the facility is super clean and organized. I have a friend who is very smart about cars and he confirmed the capable competent work … so I would recommend this over any dealership for all repairs.
