This is just one guy operating by himself. He has serviced American and Japanese vehicles for us. He tells you the cost up front if he can and, if he can't tell you until he gets into the car, the tells you that too. On a couple occasions I compared prices, and his were reasonable compared to the competition.

I found Richard (not sure why it's called Jim's Automotive, if the owner is named Richard, but whatever) years ago through Checkbook, and I have never regretted it. I always take my car there for check-ups and for more serious issues. I knew I had a great place when I saw all the old cars sitting around that they work on for fun. And I've had several experiences through the years where Richard has told me he wasn't the best one to do a job, or that he couldn't get me a very good price on something. He's also helped prioritize work that needs to be done to help afforability. In my book, that's gone a long way toward trusting that when he says something needs to be done, it's important. I wholeheartedly recommend Jim's Automotive.

We've relied on Jim's to keep our vehicles on the road and running well. Jim's is where you get your vehicle fixed right. It's not where you get your latte, free Wi-Fi, and a loaner car.
