I had a bad intake gasket on a Chevy truck (coolant leak). Based on reviews on this web site, I called Jim up. He was honest and timely and did a good job. He overlooked another potential problem on his quote, but caught it and gave me a break on price; overall it was less than 2/3 of other quotes.

I just moved to the Miami area and my car crapped the bed as soon as I took it off the car hauler. Some coworkers recommended Jim and the folks at Car Port. I was more than satisfied, as they did everything within their power to help me out. They went above and beyond (I purchased a new distributor from Napa and they installed it for free). If you are new to south Dade and looking for a shop, I'd highly recommend Car Port.

I used Car Port auto based on the previous post. The actual number for the shop is 305-245-8335. The number listed is for Jim's cell phone. We had problems with a grinding noise coming from my Civic's engine. He called and asked me to come back because, of course, the noise decided to become as quiet as the rest of then engine as soon as I left the car with him. I identified the noise and he repaired the problem. I left the car there over the weekend because my wife went to work Friday afternoon with her Hyundai Sonata and I was unable to pick up the car when it was finished. That night her power steering went out. She had her car towed back home, but we were left without any car. I called Jim on his cell and he was nice enough to come in on a Saturday so we could get the Sonata towed there and so I could pick up my Civic and not be left without a car. AAA said that I could write a check for the tow since I did not have any cash on me, but the driver was crazy and went irate over $2.50. Jim paid the driver himself and said that we could just add it to the bill later. I had also been putting off having a brake job done on my Civic for some time because I was afraid of the cost. The next month I had some more money and I decided to get it done, expecting it to cost several hundred dollars. He said that the rotors were thick enough to machine down since they were warped and he just charged me for a set of brake pads and a little labor. I highly recommend Jim and Car Port Auto. If you need any work done, he is an honest and straightforward mechanic.
