Can Driving Condition's Affect My Transmission?
Yes, extreme cold or hot weather combined with poor driving conditions can impact a transmission's life expectancy. When seldom driven or usually driven short distances, vehicles may be subject to unusual wear or strain. An example would be vehicles that are normally driven a short distance normally never have the chance for the engine to heat up to the normal heat range, the result of which can be excessive engine wear.
Truly a repair shop that can be TRUSTED
Tom Adamson of Stow Ohio
"Truly a repair shop that can be TRUSTED....I took my mother's 2007 Mercury Mountaineer there after a local dealership quoted a $4,500 repair for the transmission, Jim and Sons completed the work for less than $2,300. I then decided to take my 2008 GMC 2500HD there after another dealership recommended a $2,000 repair for a re-manufactured transfer case, Max assured me he would check it out completely, after keeping me informed throughout the entire process he and his brother found some loose wire connections, fixed those and did a complete service on the transfer case ALL for less than $300.00. Truck drives fine again. They have definitely earned my trust from here on out. I cannot say enough for them and the other staff. Please don't hesitate to take your vehicle there.Thanks again,Tom Adamson"
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."
Outstanding customer service, reasonably priced, and quality work characterize Jim & Sons Transmissions from my experience.
Dave P. of Baltimore Maryland
"Outstanding customer service, reasonably priced, and quality work characterize Jim & Sons Transmissions from my experience. I took my 2000 Honda Accord to them nearly two years ago to rebuild the transmission, primarily because they provided the lowest estimate and because of the good reviews I saw. I was not disappointed. They fixed the transmission for the price stated and everyone on their staff was a pleasure to work with. They kept me informed of the progress and finished the work on time. They also back their work. Most recently I had a different, intermittent issue with the same car. Although I live more than 300 miles away, I took my car to them again. They worked with me to find a rental car while they troubleshot the issue. They showed their expertise in finding and fixing the problem and were extremely fair, even though the car was outside warranty. This impressive family run business seems to care about integrity first, over profit. I wish more businesses were run like Jim & Sons Transmission."

I would recommend Jim & Sons to anyone, and I told my mechanic that he should feel confident doing the same.
Mark M. of Hudson Ohio
"The fact that Jim & Sons is a family business was clear throughout my experience: everyone was friendly, professional, straightforward, and willing to work with my schedule. My transmission was rebuilt within the estimated cost and time frame that were given after the assessment, and Max even went above and beyond by spending a significant part of a day fixing a problem with the car stereo code that was a flaw of the car, not the service. I would recommend Jim & Sons to anyone, and I told my mechanic that he should feel confident doing the same. "
If Jim & Sons were a religion, I would sign up.
Pat Saueressig of Stow Ohio
"If Jim & Sons were a religion, I would sign up. At 4:30 on the Friday afternoon before a holiday weekend my transmission failed while towing a camper. A local dealership recommended J&S's. Tiffany assured me they could handle the job but not until Tuesday following Memorial Day. She provided me a recommended tow service that was able to come get the vehicle (out-of-town) on Sunday. They called me on Tuesday and promised an estimate by Thursday. They called Wednesday with the estimate and promised I'd have the vehicle back on Monday or Tuesday the following week. I was elated when they called on Friday morning to tell me the vehicle was ready to pick up with no surprises about my bill. They worked out all the details with the warranty company so I didn't have to get involved at all. These folks know how to provide customer service! Very prompt and professional and a great warranty to boot! "
this is definitely the place to go! Thank you Wayne & staff.e

Stephene Van Natta of Canton Ohio
"After diagnostics were done at my regular auto shop, I was told it was necessary for my Jeep to be serviced by a transmission shop. After calling me, they arranged everything. I was assured I would be pleased with Jim & Sons Transmission in North Canton. 'Wayne" called to explain there were several electronic issues in my transmission. Wayne called me 2 more times with updates and was very pleasant & knowledgeable. Repairs were made and my Jeep was ready to go the next day. Nobody likes to know their vehicle needs transmission work but this is definitely the place to go! Thank you Wayne & staff.e"
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"

Jim and Sons Transmission is a very honest and professional shop.
Ryan Meffley of Homerville Ohio
"Jim and Sons Transmission is a very honest and professional shop. My family has been satisfied customers of Jim & Sons since 1985. Jim has rebuilt and serviced transmissions in many vehicles over the years for my dad. I currently live an hour away, but still bring my vehicles to Jim for service. I even brought my vehicles to Jim for service when I lived in Cincinnati for 8 years. Jim has done all the transmission, transfer case, and differential services on my 2005 F150 with 173,000 miles on it. Jim's shop overhauled the rear differential in 2010 and most recently replaced the clutch pack assembly in my 2005 F150. I have been completely satisfied with all the work, and appreciate the honesty from all of Jim's employees. I highly recommend Jim & Sons in Cuyahoga Falls or Canton for any transmission or driveline repairs or service. You won't find a better shop."
