Over all I must say that I am very thankful for their service and their professionalism and I feel like they cherish their customers and are passionate about doing a good job.
Lionel Nwike of Wadsworth Ohio
"Came in to Jim & Son's per referral to fix my broken manual transmission. I was aware that it would not be cheap to get it replaced so initially I asked for an estimate. Dan and Max accurately quoted the job and answered all the questions I had. I dropped of my car and was given a rental for for the week that they needed to complete the work. In the end Max was able to rebuild my transmission which saved me some money and I was given a good warranty with job. I came back once again to change transmission fluid, because it shifted a little unsmoothly in cold weather, which they gladly took care of. Over all I must say that I am very thankful for their service and their professionalism and I feel like they cherish their customers and are passionate about doing a good job. Thanks to the whole team and to Beverly in front for your help. I strongly recommend Jim & Son's for any future customer."
Without a doubt the most impressive experience I have had at an auto repair shop ever.
Mike Thompson of Akron Ohio
"I found Jim and Sons on the internet was very impressed with the reviews I read. I called every other shop imaginable and was not impressed by a single one. Called and talked to Max and came away very impressed. Scheduled the tranny service for my KIA. Had a load of questions and concerns and was not only assured it was the right thing to do, but I also came away with a vast amount of knowledge about these newer tranmissions and how they fuction and why they need regular serviceing. At a very reasonable price. I felt very comfortable there. I have read a lot on the correct procedure on how to service a tranny and i can tell you Jim and Sons does it the correct way. It was amazing to me how nasty the fuid coming out of a transmission with less than 50,000 miles was. The car shifts buttery smooth now; the difference is astonishing. Beverly is a real cool cat. Without a doubt the most impressive experience I have had at an auto repair shop ever."
Their pricing was MORE than reasonable. Hopefully I will not need their wonderful service on a routine basis but if I do, I will not hesitate to return to them.
Barb Knupp of Akron Ohio
"Normally when one hears the word "transmission" it is asscociated with the phrase "national debt"! This is certainly NOT the case with Jim and Sons. I found them to be very friendly, honest and accommodating in our dealing. Their pricing was MORE than reasonable. Hopefully I will not need their wonderful service on a routine basis but if I do, I will not hesitate to return to them. Thanks guys!!!"
Honest, professional, friendly people with a long-standing reputation.
Bob Thompson of Stow Ohio
"Took our 04 Trailblazer with a 4WD problem to Jim's based on our regular mechanic's recommendation. Very glad we did! Max called me with a preliminary diagnosis on the problem and fortunately it didn't involve any new parts or expensive labor costs. In fact, Max gave me some tips to avoid having it reoccur. Honest, professional, friendly people with a long-standing reputation."
The work was flawless. My car drives like a dream now, the attention to detail...well is just unheard of anymore!

THANKS GUYS for saving me another car payment and giving new life AND VALUE to my CRV!

Heath Katy & Nolan Taylor of Cuyahoga Falls Ohio
"Thank you for the resurrection of my Honda CRV. The transmission went out on it and after getting an estimate from another garage I had it brought into Jim & Sons. They towed the car, diagnosed the problem, gave me an estimate and even had it towed back to my house. At first we were going to just sell it as the cost was hard to swallow for a 2001 with 175K miles BUT with their estimate was a comment that the rest of the car was in very good shape and would last as long as the transmission. After deciding on the fix they towed it back to the shop - FREE OF CHARGE - and advised me of the updated estimate after then got into it. The fixed it in record time and even fixed a couple of other issues for the cost of the parts only. The car runs and handles like new. THANKS GUYS for saving me another car payment and giving new life AND VALUE to my CRV!"
Though i didn't need any serious work, your honest estimate speaks volume about your company.
Anthony Lee of Akron Ohio
"Went to Jim and sons expecting a transmission rebuild in my F150. Turns out all I needed was a quart of transmission fluid! Though i didn't need any serious work, your honest estimate speaks volume about your company. Thanks"
Real people solving real problems!
Jason Smith of Stow Ohio
"Thanks everybody who put the extra effort in to getting my Dakota fixed up! These guys, Dan and Max in particular, put the time and care into working around my schedule and properly diagnosing the problem and keeping me posted with updates as they had them. Real people solving real problems!"
I will not go anywhere else based on my first experience!

Matt Beck of Cuyahoga Falls Ohio
"I just wanted to let you know what a pleasant experience I had when I had the unfortunate event of my transmission completely failing in my 1994 Lexus ES300. First of all, this all started with me being stranded 30 miles away from home while away at work. The transmission had been acting up so I called to get an appointment for a check-up later in the week. I didn't make the appointment needless to say, the car would not move, except in reverse! I called Jim's and talked to Melissa explaining the situation and she promptly sent out a tow truck to retrieve my car. Upon delivery of the car to the shop, it was inspected and Max called me to explain that the transmission had failed and would need to be rebuilt. Understandably, with a car that had 184k miles on it, that it was time for some repairs to a transmission I never did anything to, except have the fluid replaced at regular frequency. Max explained the process, the timing of the repairs, the cost and answered my questions regarding the transmission and car. The transmission was repaired on time, as specified in the estimate, good as new. The staff at Jim & Son's Transmission were professional, courteous, and had me back on the road again as promised. I would recommend anyone that is experiencing transmission difficulties to pay a visit to Jim & Son's Transmission. I subsequently taken my two cars for transmission maintenance and I will not go anywhere else based on my first experience! Thank you Melissa, Max and staff."
I highly recommend them and would NEVER take my car anywhere else!
Diane Wilson of Stow Ohio
"I can't thank you guys enough. I had taken my car to another very reputable transmission shop and was told I needed a new transmission that would cost me $4,500.00! I took it to Jim and Sons Transmission for another look (which they did for free. I had to pay 260.00 to the other place to check it out and flush out the fluid!) Max called and said not only did I not need a new transmission but that I could get it done for free! He knew of the problem and knew that there was an extended warranty put on it for that specific problem. He had all the paperwork ready for me to take the car to the dealer and it was repaired in an hour free of charge. They were so knowledgeable, friendly and honest. I highly recommend them and would NEVER take my car anywhere else!"
