Can You Tell Me What A Limited Slip Differential Is?
Occasionally one of our customers in the Cuyahoga Falls ~ North Canton area will ask a technician at Jim & Sons Transmission what a limited slip differential is. We tell them that when their vehicle is turning around a curve, the outside wheel turns a larger radius than that of the wheel inside. This results in the outside wheel turning faster which is allowed by the differential. In a limited slip differential system, clutches or a locking mechanism is used to facilitate power and drive both wheels. This system was designed to enable both wheels to turn at varying speeds in turns, but have them both pulling when driving straight. The advantage of this is that both wheels are pulling even when one wheel may lose traction.
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 would also like to say thanks for telling me the charges for your work which were 100% less than I had anticipated.
Bob Doherty of Akron Ohio
"Thank you for your excellent work you did stopping the transmission on my car from leaking fluid. I appreciate the manner in which you took my car in, inspected it and repaired it. I would also like to say thanks for telling me the charges for your work which were 100% less than I had anticipated. I'm wishing that you will continue to have the best of success in your business.

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."
Great service and people
Tim McMahon of Stow Ohio
"Great service and people. Max even cleared the snow and ice off my windows when I started my truck up to leave."
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"
His shop is incredibly clean and his staff is great. I can not say enough about Jim, except that I would like to steal him and have him here in D.C.
Washington District of Columbia
Mary Manzari of Washington District of Columbia
"Once again, Jim has come to my rescue. I live in Washington, D.C., and whenever I am in Akron I have Jim service the transmission on my 2004 Honda Odyssey (200,000 miles). Whenever I have an issue or question about my transmission, I call Jim. Actually, I call Jim whenever I have a question regarding my van. ... I call him from the Honda service dealer as well ... Even though I am in D.C. he is always there, professional and ALWAYS helps me. I really trust him. In 2003, Jim rebuilt the transmission on my 1998 Grand Voyager. His shop is incredibly clean and his staff is great. I can not say enough about Jim, except that I would like to steal him and have him here in D.C."

With service like Jim & Son's I understand why you're the best transmission shop in the Akron Ohio area!
Brennan Kolton of Stow Ohio
"We just wanted to take a moment to thank you for the excellent service we received at your shop. Our truck was ready when you said it would be ready. When we experienced a problem with the truck shortly after the repair, it was towed promptly and fixed immediately. There was no additional charge even though it had nothing to do with the original repair. With service like Jim & Son's I understand why you're the best transmission shop in the Akron Ohio area! Thank you again for a great job."
I would strongly recommend Jim & Sons to anyone in upper Ohio.
Rock Hill South Carolina
Coy Cruse of Rock Hill South Carolina
"February two years ago I found myself in your community due to a lose in our family. While there my transfer case locked up and rendered my Tahoe immobile, four states away from home. Jim & Sons took fantastic care of my needs and had me back on the road within hours. Max Currier was my service advisor. He, Bev and the entire staff were caring of my situation, courteous and very professional. I would strongly recommend Jim & Sons to anyone in upper Ohio. Thanks again, Coy Cruse"
I was treated well, and I highly recommend this shop for any drivetrain repairs you need.
Ray Woods of Akron Ohio
"I had a serious noise in the rear differential of my 2002 Blazer. With 205,000 miles on it, I was not surprised. These guys were great. Free diagnostics, and they gave me two options for the repairs. I chose and they fixed. The cost was much less than I expected. Now it is ready for another 100,000 miles. I was treated well, and I highly recommend this shop for any drivetrain repairs you need. "
