You asked the question if I had more than a professional relationship with my mechanic. Well, this is one of the many good things about Jim Lane. If you didn't know Jim before you went into his shop you will once you have done business with him. He makes everyone who enters his shop feel that they are the most important customer he has. He takes the time to get to know you and you WANT to get to know him. If you went into his shop for the very first time by the time you are going back to pick up your car you feel like you have known him for ages. Since he has worked on my vehicle he has become a friend not only because of his honesty but he makes you feel like a friend. Jim has his cridentials on the wall of this shops office. Ford Masters, 30 years experience, ASE Certified. I hear from many people who have used Jim as their mechanic that he won't be in business long because he dosen't charge enough. This was one of the many things we spoke about while getting to know one another. He used to work for dealerships and said he would get sick seeing how customers would get taken advanage of this was one of the reasons for him openning his own shop. I know one thing Jim does that not too many shops do and that is a follow up phone call to his customers checking to see if everything is ok with their vehicle. A couple of customers had to bring their car back but not for something Jim did. It was for defective after market parts. He took that info and used it. He won't buy those parts again. He believes in factory parts but sometimes the customer makes the decision after being informed as to the difference in quality of the part. I guess they rather spend the extra money later as Jim put it. Yes he is a friend but only because he is honest, skilled, takes the time, is basically just a down to earth good person. I have found out that many of the customers cars he worked on while with the dealerships have followed him to his current shop and some of these people drive up to 30 or more miles just to have Jim perform a lub, oil, filter service. If you ever get the opportunity to visit his shop you will see what I am talking about.

I live in Nebraska and was picking up my father-in-law's car in Florida. He's out of the country and the car had been sitting for over a year. It is a 1990 Ford Crown Victoria with extremely low miles and in A-1 condition! I wanted a reputable mechanic to go over the car befor I headed backe to Nebraska. I called Jim's shop the week before I left and arranged to bring the car in. They gave me the name/phone number of a towing service just in case I couldn't get the car started. The car did start and I ran VERY rough, but I managed to get it Jim's shop. Jim and Jerry kept the car for two days and really gave it a good going over. Several items needed to be replaced (belts), wheel bearing repaced, fuel drained, new filters, etc. The cost for Jim's work was very reasonable. When I picked up the car, they asked that I call them when I got back to my father-in-law's condo and let them know how the car ran. The car ran GREAT !!! I left for Omaha, Nebraska by way of Dallas and had the car cruising at 80 mph without any problems! The car performed flawlessly on the trip and still does. Thanks for the recommendation!
