I found Jim by way of a referral and have had such great experiences with him I try to tell everyone about him. Jim is everything you want in a mechanic: honest, up front, affordable, and extremely competent. His shop is in a sketchy (but still safe) area because he likes having multiple bays and many mechanics working at once and rent is freakin’ expensive everywhere else. I’ve brought four cars to Jim over the years and he’s taken exceptional care of each one. When you bring a car to Jim with a problem he fixes the problem, and perhaps the only strange part is that he doesn’t upsell any other services – or go looking for other issues if you don’t tell him. I got in the habit of asking him to do a full inspection each time I brought in my cars – just in case there was something going on I missed. This is something that can be seen up or down, since some people want a proactive mechanic who will run down a list of all the things that need to be done. Personally, I appreciate Jim’s approach. “What’s wrong? OK. That’s fixed now.” And then he charges you a fraction of what you expected.
