I seriously will not go anywhere else. These guys make a stressful situation so much better because you know you can trust them to take care of your vehicles needs. They are thorough and prompt. One call to J&J from a simple check engine light to a major repair is all it takes. They'll definitely have a customer for life.

Jim's Automotive
Went to Jim's Automotive.. To get a coolant flush and a brake job. Coolant flush hundred and $9, brake job almost $300.! Car is only 8 years old.. Less than 27,000 miles on it!! Never had any problems with the car whatsoever!! Day later engine light comes on. Call Jim's Automotive they told me nothing that they did to my car could cause the engine light to come on. Told me they could check my engine light for another hundred and $5.. went to Automotive Excellence they checked my light for free and told me what the problem was. It was the thermostat that the coolant flows through.!! I changed it myself. And when I took the thermostat out it looked like somebody had taken a screwdriver and pushed it top support. So it wouldn't shut and it would just stay open. Have shown it to some mechanics and they've said they have never seen a thermostat do this before. I have to give at least a star but I don't want to give any.!!!!!

Tips & Advices
Among the common scams pulled are needless repairs, where a garage charges you for work that isn't necessary. Another popular one is attracting customers through a cheap oil change or tire pressure check. Then, when you your car is being repaired, they give you a long list of other corrections they'd like to make, therefore boosting the total cost of your bill. The best way to combat these types of problems is getting a written estimate before work is done so you can see how much repairs are expected to cost. If the final bill is higher than the estimate projected, ask to specifically see the work. Make sure information is put in writing as well. If a problem remains, you can have proof that work was not done to your satisfaction.
For winter driving, features such as the defroster, heater and exhaust system are paramount. Look in your owner's manual for specific directions on how features should be checked and repaired. Many newer cars have a cabin air filter that can be replaced when needed, allowing warm air to continue to flow in. Also, check tires before winter driving, as they need to be at the proper pressure to perform well on snow and ice.
In the spring and summer, you want to be sure your air conditioner and cooling systems work correctly. Given the high temperatures, overheating is a common problem. Look over the system by ensuring there is enough coolant available. If it needs to be refilled, it is best to open the hood and add more to the car before it gets too warm out. Also, clean out fan ducts and other ventilation sources necessary for summertime driving.
Some fixes to your car can be done without paying a specialist. Issues like replacing oil and air filters are relatively simple, with instructions provided in the owner's manual on how to make these changes. The same goes for replacing broken windshield wipers or burnt-out headlights. Such issues should be repaired quickly to guarantee safety, but don't require a visit to a garage.
Yes. Not every type of auto repair work needs to be done by a certified mechanic. You can fix some of a vehicle's issues just by paying attention to how the automobile is running and having a basic understanding of auto repair. Look over the ways weather may impact your car and what preventative measures you can take to avoid having to take it into the shop.
