J.L. has always been great to us. We moved back to the States after being overseas for awhile and he took in our German Ford and repaired it with VERY reasonable rates. It was less than 1/2 of what the dealership was going to charge us for the same repair. He always fits us in when he need something done. Great man, great shop!

Having driven cars for seventy years, I can swear without reservation that JL is the most competent, fair, and hard- working car mechanic I've ever met. He worked most of a morning on a Honda problem, before saying it had to go to the dealer, and THEN! didn't charge me for his time spent. "If I don't fix it, you don't pay for it." You don't find mechanics like that very easily.

I cannot say enough about J.L.He has been my #1 choice of a mechanic for 16 years.I have referred lots of my friends and college student friends of my sons to him. He treats all with dignity and fairness.Unless the work required is under warranty by the dealership, J.L. is the mechanic of choice!The reason no one answers the question about screw- ups is because J.L. does'nt make them!

coming from a feminist point of view, J.L. is one of the sweetest men I know

JL has taken care of many of my cars (old and brand new) for many years and I have refered many people. He is the most honest mechanic I have ever delt with (and I have delt with MANY). If there is something he can't take care of he will refer you to the best place. As a woman and mechanically challanged, I so very highly recommend JL as the most honest man I know.

During ten years of patronization of Mr. Tison I have never had a disagreement, problem with a repair or even a feeling that I've ever been overcharged. I recommend both him and his son highly and without reservation.

J.L. has been working on my 19 year old Toyota for 15 years now--it runs great and looks good. I think it is aging much more gracefully than I am. This is an excellent repair shop, owned by an honest man who won't mislead his customers. I intend to do business with this shop as long as I own any vehicle.

Best mechanics (J.L and son) in Gainesville hands down. Experienced and HONEST. I would recommend to new residents and old, and particularly to University of Florida students. J.L. is where you should go for all of your maintenance and repairs.
