Jim and Paul do a great job but, as with many good garages run by a couple of guys, they tend to take on too much work at times; therefore, timliness can sometimes be a problem. A generic comment/question: I bought my '89 Jeep Cherokee new in Nov. '88 once I secured a decent job after college. I have just over 195,000 miles in over 9 years - on a Jeep, without a major problem: what's up with that?

They have worked on my family's 3 cars (2 Toyotas, 1 GMC truck) over the last 3 years and they have always done a great job.

Their only faults are time management. I called on a Thursday Jim said call a week later, okay I thought fine. I call a week later and still nothing. When they do get around to fixing the vehicle they are very competent and reasonable in price. I haven't figured out their pricing schedule yet, but the prices are very good without a doubt.

i have brought both my vehicles to young's garage for many years and always received the best quality work in the most timely manner. jim/paul have always treated me with the upmost honesty in regards to my vehicles. In the end i have always walked away from 400 chandler st with the feeling that i was treated in a fair and honest manner. I would recommend this garage to anybody that wants excellent work at a reasonable price. keep up the good work......

I had gone to the local Ford dealer for problems with my Taurus and was given a quote of $437. I felt that this was too much and took it Young's. Young's fixed the problem in half a day for $80. It took that long and $89 for the dealer just to diagnose the problem. I would definitely go back.

My '98 Escort was stalling occasionally, and occasionally refusing to go into higher gears. I dropped off my car and left a note about some of the sypmtoms my car was experiencing, without any ideas on what was causing them, with my key on Thursday evening. Even though only one of them had been there that Friday, my car was ready to be picked up the time I got back from work on Friday. His description of how he'd tried to identify the problem, as well as how he'd fixed the problems once he'd found what he thought they were was incredibly detailed while at the same time using small words, like "engine" and "not working", which I appreciated very much. It's been a couple of weeks, and my car has ceased experiencing the problems that I'd asked them to take care of. I highly recommend this garage. The only slightly inconvenient thing is that the garage is only open 9-5, M-F.

I am a college student here in Worcester and my Dodge Ram was real loose in the auto transmission and my cruise had stopped working. I thought I needed a tune-up which really was my initial reason for bringing it in. I found Jim and Paul's number on here, and trusting the reviews gave them a call. This is the only problem I experienced with them; they didn't call me back promptly that evening or the day it was repaired (very next day). But when I called back a second time they were more than pleasant and even said they would drive me back to school so I wouldn't miss class. That being said I felt good about getting it fixed. They looked it over while I was in classes the next day, and I called them at 4pm to see what was up because as I said before they didn't call me. They said I was all set and could pick it up right away that afternoon. They even said I didn't need a tune-up because everything looked good, but I should try perhaps to replace the O2 sensors to get better gas mileage. They didn't replace those because they ONLY use OEM (manufacturer) replacement parts and that would have been a couple hundred bucks. Total price for diagnostic, cruise repair and tranny linkage: 90 bucks even. Very Satisfied.

Jim is the most honest and trustworthy mechanic in Worcester. Have been using this family friendly shop for over 25 years. Highly recommended - fast and very reasonable auto work.
