The personel at Jims Automotive are great people to deal with.They are Jim, Richard,Charlie and Patricia.They are very honest with what needs repairing right now or if its something that can hold off or not even worry about.They have gone out of the way a few times to jump start my car or to change a flat tire even though they were busy.I also believe their prices are very reasonable or cheaper than other shops I have been to.All in all I trust them 100%

A very honest auto shop. They explain what is wrong and why you need to fix it. I agree with the other posted opinion...they don't try to sell work that isn't needed. I do not hesitate to recommend them and their rates are much more reasonable than other local shops.

Jim's automotive is an excellent place to take your car. I have been a customer for years and have always had great service. Their prices are amoung the lowest and I get quick service. It is a small close knit shop and the guys are always willing to help!

The people at Jim's were honest, friendly, competent, and fast. I dropped the car off after hours, and they called the next morning to let me know they had it and were starting to take a look. The same day they called again with information and an estimate and had everything done the next day. I had brought in my car to get my brakes checked and had been expecting to be told they needed to be replaced. But the mechanics said I they were alright for now, and I should just get them checked after the winter. Also, while the shop is not near a metro, it is accessible by a bus line from the Pentagon stop that runs every 10 minutes during the day, so it's easy to reach.

I've been looking for a great, trustworthy shop for quite some time, and I have finally found it in Jim's. The staff is very friendly and customer-focused. They are honest, and they didn't try to sell me extra services I didn't need (as a woman, I still find that that happens a lot). They also went out of their way to do a couple of little extras for me (lubing creaky hinges; printing recall notices) that I didn't expect, but really appreciated. They're just a block from Metro and ART buses, so it's very easy to get back and forth if you have to leave the car. Excellent experience, convenient location - I'll definitely be back.
