The guys at ABLE have always "done me right". In repairing my toyota there is only one guy in this town who knows his "stuff" and that is CHRIS! Dave runs the best damn garage in town. They were able to find parts for my BMW I was told were obsolete.

i have a Ford Explorer. It has a problem with starting in cold weather (still). It will kill if you remove your foot from the accelerator, even though it starts well. The mechanics replaced the mass airflow sensor, then replaced the thermostat housing because the old one was cracked (which didn't solve the problem). They put new hydraulic tensioners on the timing chain to fix the cam timing (which needed the adjustment but didn't solve the problem). They changed the oil (which didn't fix the problem). They changed the plugs, which didn't fix the problem. They tried an ERG solenoid module, which didn't fix the problem. They called the Ford garage, which certainly didn't fix the problem. They drained the gas, added new and added HEET, which also didn't fix the problem. Although this garage is full of really competent guys, they suggested I call Car Talk or a Shoshoni Medicine Man - because we still are looking for cause. The good thing is that they take off the expensive parts that they hope would make the difference, but which did not. The shop has a real commitment to fairness and learning - which is very refreshing and fairly novel in my experience. During this process, I never have to ask "what will it cost me" because I know that it will be fair.

They are good guys and very competent. I never walk away feeling I've paid to much.

I was 2000 miles away from my trusty mechanic, driving across country and in the middle of Grand Teton National Park when my engine light came on in my 2001 Honda Accord. I had recently refueled and mistakenly filled up with 85 octane gas rather than the 86 or above recommended for my vehicle (East coast dwellers, pay attention at pumps in the west and midwest!!! Octanes start lower at the pumps-85-87-89, not 87-91-93!!!) Unsure if the octane snafu or something worse was the source of my light coming on, I consulted the Mechanic's Files and found Able Auto in Jackson, WY. The folks there were quick, efficient and very friendly. Following a scan, they reset my knock sensor and the light went off. They charged me a VERY kind and reasonable price for the scan and reset. The next day, in the middle of Yellowstone, National Park, the engine light came back on and I called Johnny at the shop, afraid that there might be more to the problem than first met the eye (the possibility of a faulty knock sensor had been mentioned the day prior). I asked Johnny to order a knock sensor and I planned on bringing in my car for service as soon as the part arrived (I didn't want to take chances with 1000 more miles of driving ahead of me). But, when Johnny contacted a Honda rep about the problem, they both agreed it was likely linked to the octane and recommended that I not replace the sensor, but rather see what happens when I fill up with the correct octane. I put in .5 tank of 91 octane gas (to counter the 85), drove for an hour and the light went off. Thanks to Able Auto and Johnny, I didn't end up spending money I didn't have, have unnecessary work done, or have to cut my vacation in Wyoming short. I appreciated Able Auto's honesty and very helpful attitude and would be happy to return to them if I run into any other problems while in their neck of the woods!

We have used most of the shops in Jackson and Wilsonover the past 40 years. A few of them are simply terrible depending upon who did the job. Able took care of my daughter and a foreign visitor this Christmas with a complicated problem in a late model Volvo. My daughter's 91 toyota would sometimes not crank. I figured it was an expensive ignition problem. It was just the starter contacts and Dan and the men at Able could have thrown in a $200 starter+ labor but instead they rebuilt it for a fraction of that and had her out the door for half that which included the labor. Very sharp and what's more very nice people with unquestioned competence. The Volvo was a complicated issue but they took care of that with overnight parts delivery. My foreign friend was very pleased. These guys are ethical and intelligent and if you are an out of town stranger afraid of being "taken" to the cleaners with auto repairs, consider no other shop.
