Finding a mechanic you can trust is difficult. Jerry's came recommended and I was pleased with the work. I would use them again. The work was complicated but done well, at a fair price and in a timely manner.

My A/c died on my 1994 Buick Regal. My regular mechanic told me that the compressor was leaking and gave me a guestimate of $1200. I thought about trading the car in, but a friend suggested I call Jerry's. They gave me a rough quote over the phone.....half what my regular mechanic had guestimated. Jerry's took the car in immediately, they sent me home via courtesy car, they telephoned me twice with minor suggestions, and then sent a car for me to take me back to their shop. The car was finished that same afternoon. One month later, the A/c died again. I called and they asked me to bring it in. A seal needed to be replaced and this was done free of charge while I waited. It's been perfect ever since. I highly recommend this garage.

A customer representative for a company we were doing business with had problems with her A/C and was stranded in town until she could get it fixed. She took it to the dealer (I don't remember which model/brand) and they gave her a pretty hefty estimate and she was lamenting how much it was - I told her to take it to Jerry and see what he would do it for - he beat the estimate by almost $500 and had her on the road by noon the next day.

From our vintage '65 Mustang to our late model SUVs over a span of eight years we have found Jerry's to be all that we could expect and more.

My AC stopped working and in FL no AC is unbearable. I looked in the yellow pages and sent an e-mail to a high school class mate who was a Mercedes mechanic. When I did not hear back from him, I recalled that I had read about a mechanic-finder and evaluator utility on the Car Talk site. I had gone to the site several days before and found the reviews very plausible and informative. I reviewed comments made by customers for several garages that I knew of and others I did not. Jerry's stood out. Based on the credentials in the yellow pages, the business being locally owned for a significant time period, and the comments left by customers on cartalk.com, I decided to call Jerry's. I called and made an appointment for the following morning, a Friday. I was apprehensive as Honda had told me awhile back that my AC might need replacing and that the charges would be through the roof. I was prepared for the worst. Jerry's evaluated my car while I waited and concluded that the problem was due to a pulley like device that is attached to the crankshaft. It was wearing and further damage could have occurred. Honda has never caught this problem. That explained a rattling noise that I had heard. To make a long story short, the real problem was this pulley like mechanism and not the air conditioning. After replacing the mechanism and belts that had worn because of its malfunction, I was back in business. They found the AC working fine and did not even need to add freon. Since my wife was out of town, they gave me a ride home across the city so I could work at home while they made the repairs. By mid-afternoon, they had fixed the car and the boss man came and picked me up. The AC worked fine on our way back to his shop where I paid the bill and dropped off the boss. In fact, on the trip back I was freezing and it was 95 degrees outside. I almost asked him to turn the AC off it was so cold. Provided that the AC keeps working, I must say that my experience with Jerry's AC repair was as good as it gets. Good ethics, pride in their work, eager to please the customer, happy to save customer money if they can, and apparent high competence. I observed their treatment of an female customer who was waiting for her car and felt that she was handled just as fairly as I was with explanations for all charges and diagnoses. Dealers have their place in the long-term maintenance of your car. But for problems like air conditioning and brakes, transmissions I prefer a smaller establishment that is creative in identifying and remedying auto problems as opposed to the equivalent of heart transplants that seem the modus operandi of the dealers. I am happy I did business with Jerry's and suspect that the dealer would have charged me a thousand more dollars than the 365 bucks I spent with Jerry's.
