  • Dave McClung


    Dave began his career in 1995 as an entry level technician while attending Brookdale Community College's automotive technology program. During that time, he invested every free moment into learning about the newer automotive technology and attending independent training classes to become a master technician.

    He holds an advanced (L1) ASE Master Technician certificate and is the "go to" guy with all diagnostic troubleshooting.

    Dave purchased Autobahn Automotive in 2002 and has been keeping his high level of automotive repair as his code of ethics. He has worked in many shops where unqualified technicians are "learning" on jobs they simply aren't qualified to perform. That is not the case here. The technicians he employs are the very best and are second to none.

    He is a TDI (diesel) specialist and has performed multiple newer Volkswagen drivetrain swaps into non German cars. His hobby consists of the Pontiac Fiero, a cult car from the 1980's. Also, craft beers and spending weekends with his family.

  • Even in the extreme cold and in the middle of a move, Dave, Ryan, and Matt still provided awesome service.

  • I'm not sure who was treated better, my car or myself. Good experience from start to finish, and everything was done right the first time. Great communication throughout a long repair process and I always felt respected and "in the loop" with regard to what was happening with my car.

    Thanks again to the whole team!

  • Highly skilled and knowledgeable, very accurate time frame for getting the car back, and cheaper than the dealership. Highly recommended.

    What a great surprise finding Dave and Autobahn Automotive. Went to dealer with trouble concerning 4x4 error message on my all wheel drive. After declining the repair which they wanted to charge me $3700 to replace the transfer case I found Autobahn. Dave was great to deal with and saved me a few thousand dollars on the repair since the so called " transfer case " replacement was not needed. Car is running great and he now has another future customer! I highly recommend Autobahn Automotive and wish I found him sooner.

    Dave has worked on my 1998 MB TD, !993 E300 TD, 2005 VW Passat TDI.

    I have to say Dave is an A+ mechanic who gets the job done right the first time. I highly recommend Autobahn Automotive for all you car needs.
