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."
I would recommend Jim & Sons to everyone.

My experience with Jim and Son's Transmission was awesome.
Robert Gingerich of Minerva Ohio
"My experience with Jim and Son's Transmission was awesome. It was an absolute pleasure dealing with Wayne and Amber. In two days the transmission in my 2007 Chevrolet 3500 was rebuilt and it was back on the road. On a scale of 1 to 10, I rate this business a 10."
I will say I am amazed at the accurate diagnostics along staying true to the estimates!
Carl Brown of Stow Ohio
"My 4 wheel drive hasn't worked in about 3 years. Finally having put the funds together to even think about getting it looked at, I sought out a garage. The important aspect was getting a garage to diagnose the problem correctly, I didn't want someone just throwing parts at it, hoping to fix the problem. Another garage recommended Jim & Sons. Dan diagnosed 2 different problems, with a cost factor for each. I will say I am amazed at the accurate diagnostics along staying true to the estimates! To further better the experience at Jim & Sons, the problems were fixed 2 days prior than expected. Although I only got to try out the 4 wheel drive in the snow for the last big snow we had, I'm impressed. Jim & Sons doesn't only fix transmissions, but axles & computer related problems as well. Thank you Dan & Amanda for keeping me updated with the expected return of my vehicle depending on availability of the parts you had to order. I was surprised they had rental vehicles at a reasonable rate. They even offered a ride back home after I dropped off my vehicle! I highly recommend Jim & Sons. "
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."
The work was flawless. My car drives like a dream now, the attention to detail...well is just unheard of anymore!

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"
They are very informative, honest, and make the process as painless as possible.
Laure Gauntner of Ravenna Ohio
"We all dread having our transmission go on our vehicles, but if you have to have it repaired go to Jim & Sons Transmission Specialists. They are very informative, honest, and make the process as painless as possible. Everyone that worked there was very friendly."
Would you like to know what is wrong with Jim and Sons? Absolutely nothing!
Jeffrey Coleman of Akron Ohio
"Would you like to know what is wrong with Jim and Sons? Absolutely nothing! For the past two weeks I have had a horrible squealing noise coming from underneath my truck. A friend looked at it, told me it was the u-joints and offered to fix it for me. While I did appreciate his generosity, the squealing continued after his attempt. I then took my truck to a large chain auto service center to get their opinion and an estimate. Their diagnosis was also the u-joints and their estimate was through the roof. I asked another friend if he knew of an honest affordable place that I could take my vehicle. Before I could finish asking he blurted out "Jim and Sons". I set up an appointment to have my truck looked at the next day. Beverly and Max were two people that I dealt with at Jim and Sons. I do not think I have ever had a more pleasant experience dealing with anyone not only in an Auto shop but also in any service industry as I had with those two. My truck was dropped off the following day. Beverly was nice enough to drive me back to work within minutes. A few hours later Max called to let me know that my truck was ready. Not only did they save me well over $200.00, they also fixed the u-joint that my friend installed incorrectly.I would recommend Jim and Sons in a heartbeat to anyone. Do yourself a favor and go see them. You will not regret it."
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!"
