Why Choose AllState Auto Experts


Our Dallas auto shop has been in business for 30 years at the same location, owned and operated by the same family, the Cabaj’s. This shows outstanding stability in these times! So many shops have opened up and closed very quickly over short periods of years. Or sometimes they are sold to another owner who refuses to honor your warranty. We have seen this happen time and time again in our marketplace. We have even seen the same owner change the name of a business at the same location and refuse to honor his customer’s warranties. My name is Bill Cabaj, President of operations. We have always guaranteed our work in writing, and honored our customer’s warranties for over 30 years!


Our technicians are ASE certified and highly trained in both foreign and domestic models. We have different specialists for every type of job and every model of vehicle. So whether you have a German, Asian, or US Built vehicle we have the trained staff to do the job right the first time. Some companies will tout they have the best equipment around to diagnose your vehicle. All this great equipment usually only gives you a starting point to where the problem lies. While we have the equipment, we believe the greatest asset we have is our technicians. A phenomenal technician will take what the diagnostic equipment is giving them and get to the root of the problem. If you do not find what caused the problem on the vehicle, the customer will be back several or many times until that cause is corrected. A misdiagnosed problem can lead to replacing many unnecessary parts and can cause you the customer a lot of money and time. Another great thing about phenomenal technicians is they can properly prioritize your repairs. Many times a vehicle will come in with multiple problems. If you can’t fix everything right away, a good technician will be able to tell you which repairs should be done first from a safety standpoint and also be able to tell you about how much time you have left before the other things become a real problem. Keeping your vehicle safe and reliable is a real passion of our technicians!

Quote from Dave Ramsey’s book Complete Guide To Money

Myth: Car payments are a way of life, and you will always have one.

Truth: The typical millionaire stays away from car payments by driving reliable used cars.

Dave Ramsey is America’s trusted voice on money and business. He’s authored four New York Times best-selling books. Financial Peace, More Than Enough, The Total Money Makeover and Entreleadership. The Dave Ramsey Show is heard by more than 5 million listners each week on more than 500 radio station. More than one million families have taken his common-sense financial class, Financial Peace University in churches, workplaces, community centers, nonprofits and military installations across the country

Another paragraph from the same book: People always say, “Well, Dave, if I were a millionaire, I’d be able to pay cash for a car too!” No, you are not getting it. These people don’t buy with cash because they are rich; they’re rich because they buy cars with cash! Think about how much the average American spends on car payments in his lifetime. The average payment is around $464 a month right now. If you invest $464 in a good mutual fund from age 30 to age 70, you’ll end up with more than $5 million. Now, I love nice cars, but I’ve never seen one worth $5 million!
