This is one of the best places ever to take your vehicle in and have them repair or replace items on your vehicle. The cost means greatness and the mechanics are awesome as well.

Andy was a lifesaver. He coached me over the phone how to fix my remote starter. It was an easy fix, but he saved me time and the hassle. I’m so appreciative and will be telling friends and family about Dealer Automotive Services and will be going there for any future needs I have.

Had a fantastic experience with DAS. They went above and beyond to make sure their work was done properly when I didn’t understand a particular feature of my new remote start. Their customer service is top notch and I will definitely be recommending them and returning in the future. Thank you DAS!

My sister recommended this place since I was having trouble with my remote start. I finally decided to have it removed since I could not get a hold of the place that originally installed the remote starter. Dealer Automotive was able to fix the problem rather than removing it and my starter was saved! Thank you!

Great customer service, happy customer here.

Great service! Very reasonable pricing for my remote start install and had it done in a couple hours. They even picked up my truck and brought it back when they were finished! An all-around excellent experience!

These guys are great and efficient! Super knowledgeable and friendly. They simplified it down for me which is a great plus! Bright my car to Best Buy to get a remote car starter installed. They had me out until the 3rd week on January. Brought it to these guys DAS and took me in the same day and had it ready for me in the morning! Best price in town waaay cheaper then BB and my dealership. Will be coming back to get my other car installed with same thing and both our cars for the DVD player installation. Super excited to continue having these guys work on our vehicles!

I own a landscape construction company and our shop is right around the corner from DAS. Over the years we’ve had a bunch of work done…. added heated seats and lumbar support to my wife’s car, new modern bluetooth radio to an old dump truck, remote starts in my car and my wife’s. I’ve done occasional business here for a long time. I’ve always been happy and the prices always seem like less than I was fearing, so that’s good. Thanks to Steve and the gang. They just fixed the A/C in my personal car and this week where it’s in the 90s, I am extra grateful. 🙂

I called a certain shop in New Hope to ask how much it would cost to get a keyless entry system installed in my 04 Grand Marquis. They quoted me an outrageous price, and I would have had to provide my own kit.

A friend of mine recommended Dealer Automotive Services and they were much more reasonable. They provided the kit as well. Overall they provided a great service at a reasonable price. Good customer service as well. Highly recommend.

Pro tip: If you have nowhere to go while you wait for your car, there’s a neat trail just a couple blocks away, it’s called 9 mile creek trail. It’s a nice little getaway from all the traffic and construction that’s going on in Hopkins right now.

I am so happy I had them install my remote start. I had the drone system installed and am very happy I did. I love being able to start and stop the car via the app on my phone. Even to just unlock it if I don’t have the keys and need to get something out. Thanks again for such awesome work and customer service!!!

Literally the only people in town who can actually install a remote starter in a manual transmission car! It even has a safety feature to ensure that your car will not turn into “Christine”– it won’t start unless your car’s in neutral. They are awesome to work with!

Andrew Dunbar

The service was very friendly and personable but I was disappointed in my experience.
My car starter was no longer taking a charge, so I called here after finding out they were any Astrostart dealer. (I purchased mine in another state.) I came in and purchased a new charger as a first step. I called and asked what to do next as that didn’t work. They said come in anytime and they would reprogram a new one for me. I came in and they didn’t have the kind needed so they had to order it. They said they would call as soon as it was in. Two weeks went by and I thought I better follow up – when I called they told me the order had arrived the week prior and they were sorry they forgot to call me. I asked if I could make an appointment and again they said again to just come in. Two days later when I arrived they weren’t prepared for me. The new starter required charging before being able to be programmed. So I sat and waited for 45 minutes while the battery charged. It has been so cold so I was motivated to have this fixed & I didn’t feel like starting the process somewhere else, but I didn’t feel like they were motivated to have my business.
They were able to reprogram a new remote and I’m pleased to be enjoying a warmed up car again.

Came back for my second vehicle. And again I felt like everyone takes care of me like I’m a part of their family. Excellent service on a professional and personal level. Too bad I couldn’t afford that 2015 Toyota C-HR, but I was able to find a used model on repokar for a great price. Still, it remains my favorite dealership

Its not often that you find great customer service experience anymore. Dealer Automotive is the exception. Great service, support, and friendly people to work with. My wife’s remote starter was installed professionally and it works great. These folks are true professionals. I will be a repeat customer!

Bill Norman

Andy helped me and he was super friendly and helpful, I asked which one was the best for my truck and even though I was willing to pay a little bit more for the other model, he recommended the one that was perfect fit for my needs and happened to be less expensive, he could have sold me the expensive one but he didn’t.

My schedule is super tight so I dropped my truck off at night and next day they called me at 10:30 am saying that it was ready… super fast!!, when I went to pick it up I was running late so they waited for me… they were nice and super friendly, it was really far from were I live but i’d definitelygo to them again if needed.

Luis Roberto Rueda

Great service!! After going back and forth between the 3rd party installer and the dealership about why my car starter wasn’t working, I called the manufacturer of my car starter and they told me about Dealer Automotive. They gave me the cheapest quote of anyone else I had talked to by far and were the most knowledgeable about why my car starter wasn’t working. They fixed it quickly and charged me the lowest price of the range they estimated! I would recommend them to anyone!

Had a new remote starter installed in my 96 Blazer in January. The service at this store is the BEST. Give the boys a raise.

I wanted to take a moment to both acknowledge and thank you for the outstanding service my wife and I recently received from your business. I purchased a remote starter for my wife’s Acura TL and we encountered numerous mechanical problems with her car that impeded your technicians ability to install the device in working fashion. Travis spent an enormous amount of time trouble shooting the issue, as the vehicle went back and forth to the dealer on three occasions. Travis was extremely thorough and patient with us as he explained the problems that he had encountered and how he felt they could be resolved. DAS also installed and removed the device several times as well. After pinpointing the issue and relaying the information to Acura, Travis insisted we try reinstalling the device one last time as both my wife and I were frustrated and ready to move on. After Acura finally resolved the issue, Steve had our vehicle picked up from the dealership and the device was successfully installed today.

This mechanical issue has plagued our vehicle periodically for the last year and Acura was unable to conclusively diagnose the problem. I feel if it were not for Travis’s diligence and commitment to service, we may never have identified the issue. Travis and Steve have been remarkable throughout this entire ordeal, and the front office staff was always extremely helpful and friendly in all my dealings with them. Your business and employees truly epitomize great customer service in an era that finds this attribute waning. I have already recommended your service to two friends and will continue to so in the future.

Keep up the great work!

I traded in my old car , which had a remote starter, (from DAS of course!) and it did not take long to decided to add one too this car also. If you live in Mn you must have a remote start. I actually find it as valuable as air conditioning in my car, couldn’t live without it. The crew at DAS were great. Thanks for keeping me warm this winter.

Brook Miller

have dealt with these guys before with great service. Was in town for Holidays. Realized my remote was not working. They worked me in to their busy day to replace the on/off switch and I was soon on my way. GREAT SERVICE! Thanks so much!

I wanted to take a few minutes to express my complete appreciation and
satisfaction with my experience with your team installing a remote car
starter. I have a 1998 Audi which I have owned the entire time and still
enjoy it however, now on these cold winter days, I open my cold detached
garage and start my cold car and by the time I get in….toasty! Thank you
to the team that has improved a cold winter driving day experience!

I am a big fan of DAS. A while back, I decided to treat myself to a remote starter for my 1998 Volkswagon Cabrio. I had always noticed their sign on 11th Avenue, south of Excelsior, so I decided to stop in. Their knowledgeable sales and support staff worked with me to find the perfect solution that fit within my budget. I don’t know of another shop around that delivers such a variety of automobile service in such a high quality manner. We are lucky to have them in Hopkins.

Send in a request for a quote to have remote start installed on their website, got a call back the next day with the options and prices. Called back a few days later to set up an appointment. They installed it super fast and called me when it was finished, when I picked up the car later that day they took the time to make sure I knew how it all worked and answered all of my questions. They never tried to up sell me and the price they had originally stated was the final price, no surprises. The entire experience was great, which I had been nervous about from reading so many bad reviews about places doing a horrible job with remote starters, either not being able to install them or breaking certain features on your car. Everything works as it’s supposed to, and they will be doing any future installs on any other cars I buy in the future.
