Jimmy is the greatest. If you have a Jeep or other SUV, he is the first place you should take it to in the metro-Boston area. He usually finds the problem pretty quick, and fixes it much more reasonably than anywhere else. Although there's no public transport right there, he'll give you a ride to the nearest station, so that's not usually a problem. Jimmy's a great guy, low-key, takes responsibility for his work without question, and knows SUV's inside-out. He can drop a new engine in a Cherokee practically overnight (he did this for me after I drove into a puddle that turned out to be a small lake) and has access to both new and used parts for you cheapskates. On my car he's done everything from the engine work to carpet and upholstery replacement, muffler, radiator, you name it. Just yell out, "Hey, JIMMEEEE!" and tell him David sent you.

Both Jimmys are great! They take the time to explain the repairs needed and I feel like they didn't take me for "a ride"! I would highly recommend them to any fellow Jeep owner. It's a Jeep thing...and they DO understand!
