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."
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."
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."
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!"
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"
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 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. "
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."
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. "
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!!!"
