First of all, over the years that I have taken my car to them, they have proved trustworthy. They've told me when my car was not worth fixing anymore (I like to hang on to a car as long as I can). They also don't try to fix something that they don't generally do - my wife's Saab's transmission was acting funny - they said they don't work on Saab's. Prior to that my wife had a Fiero that rattled like mad. They said there was nothing they could do about that as they were just built that way. Also, for an auto repair shop, their place is very clean. And maybe most important of all, when they've fixed something, it has stayed fixed. They did tell me whenever my timing chain needed to be replaced, that is, before the engine went.

Andy, the owner, was very pleasant and articulate. Having worked on my own cars for the past 20 years, I've gotten pretty good at sniffing out sub-par garages. J&P's price was fair, service was excellent, and completion time was as promised. I'll definitely be going back.

I am new to the boston area and don't know much about cars. I used J & P Garage based on the reviews I read here. They were polite, called me with a price before doing the work and replaced my brake pads and rotors for a very reasonable price. I am pleased with their work and will certainly use them again in the future. I would reccommend them to anyone.

I can't say enough good things, these guys are great. I have brought my car in several times, their prices are very fair and they know what they are doing.

I received excellent service with them. They took the time to explain my options and didn't try to sell me on additional, unnecessary work. They were very affordable (much, much less than the other places I had gotten estimates from) and they were extremely timely - my car was finished the same day. I will definitely go there in the future.

I have been a customer for many years and continue to be very pleased with J&P. They are honest, faily priced and very competant. When there is a need, Andy clearly explains what the issue is and what the fix entails. Their location is on the #66 MBTA busline that goes to Havard Square which is very convienent for me. It just does not get any better.

I was looking after my sister's car for a month when it developed a bad rattle. I thought i was something in the exhaust system but couldn't figure it out. Took it here and they had it fixed in a couple hours for $40. Not bad in my book.

I recently moved to the Boston area, and on the way up to visit a friend in NH, my car overheated, and I had to have it towed. I contacted my parents, who went to the Car Talk website in search of a reliable mechanic in the Boston area, more specifically, Allston. I had the car towed to J&P, not knowing why it had overheated in the first place. They took time and care to ensure that the car was properly diagnosed, and kept me in the know the entire time. I appreciate everything they did for me and for my old 230,000 mile car, and would recommend them to everyone in the Boston area. I would return to them with no hesitation in the future.

These guys are really the best. Very straight-forward, and they won't rip you off. I'm so happy to find a reasonable mechanic, especially after dealing with the VW dealer down the street which makes totally bogus issues (read: they lie that there are additional problems you didn't bring it in for) to add to your bill. I learned about them from an indenpendent auto negotiator (someone who works to locates the "perfect" car for people for a fee) who has worked with J&P for 31 years. I figured he used a great mechanic, and I was totally right. Can't recommend these guys more highly!
