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."
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. "
It was nice to deal with a business that cares and makes the customer feel like they can ask questions.
Tom Pollock of Mogadore Ohio
"Thank you very much for your honesty and kindness. I was very impressed with your politeness both over the phone and in person. It was nice to deal with a business that cares and makes the customer feel like they can ask questions."
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."
Anybody EVER needing transmission service, you need only to go to Jim and Sons in Akron or Canton , you will never regret it!
Dean Stevens of Diamond Ohio
"Hi! My name is Dean Stevens, and I cant tell you how pleased I am with Jim and Sons Transmission! I have had my wifes Beetle to the dealer, the biggest and most well known transmission shop in the youngstown area, and twice to a foreign car shop in streetsboro! After 8 months of people telling us nothing was wrong( car slamming into gears up and downshifting) we got lucky and found jim and sons! No I did not need a new transmission like i was told by a vw guru, i just needed a valvebody in which was very reasonable! Jim and sons did their magic to our Bug and now it is perfect( no more banging and slamming) Anybody EVER needing transmission service, you need only to go to Jim and Sons in Akron or Canton , you will never regret it!"
In the end I was provided a quality service for an affordable price I feel.
James Johnson of Kent Ohio
"I brought my car to Jim and Sons in Cuyahoga Falls on recommendation from John at Dennings Auto in Kent. I am good friends with him and trust his judgement since usually its me or him that does all the work on my vehicles. I initially was impressed with the facility, definitely a nice clean shop. My 2003 Buick Lesabre had the check engine light on and was throwing transmission codes. I got at least 4 calls in the 2 days the car was there, informing me of exactly what they were doing, and giving me firm estimates of what we're looking at in price. In the end the fix ended up being somewhat simple and cost efficient. They made sure to make me aware of what the cost of the fix was going to be and what my overall cost would be including the labor costs I had already been made aware of. When I got the car back I was definitely satisfied with the repairs. I took it to e-check and it passed with no problems. In the end I was provided a quality service for an affordable price I feel. The staff at this location were also very nice and accommodating, which is appreciated. I would definitely recommend your shop and I will be coming back if I have any transmission issues."
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!"
I will not go anywhere else based on my first experience!
Cuyahoga Falls Ohio
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 cannot express enough of my gratitude to these people who not only treated me fairly, efficiently and professionally but with more kindness than I have ever experienced from total strangers who cared enough to make my life safe.
B.J. Webb of Stow, Ohio
"I cannot say enough good things about Jim & Sons Transmission Specialist! I got in my car to go to work and my gear shift was a wet noodle. I stood in my drive in total dismay. I called Jim and Sons to ask for help. Within 20 minutes, Beverly had a tow truck in my driveway and to top that off he was not only professional but kind. That was my first indication that I had called the right person. After I got to work Max called to give me an update. The next morning, I received another call from Max giving me the morning update and expense report. By the afternoon I got a call saying my car was ready for pick up. I am a senior citizen. I cannot express enough of my gratitude to these people who not only treated me fairly, efficiently and professionally but with more kindness than I have ever experienced from total strangers who cared enough to make my life safe. God answered my prayers...Jim & Son cares for you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. B.J. Webb Stow, Ohio"
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. "
