Jim jennings saved my life!   Well at least my life as i know it.  I recently purchased a lemon from the scheisters over at chesaco motors, that first over heated and blew the thermostat and radiator, then a week later the transmission went up.  still under the warranty chesaco motors blames the transmission failure on me and stated they are not going to fix it.   i decided i was i going to scrap it and take the cash and start over with another down payment and a new loan.  then my father said call around and see what kinda  deal i could get. so right off the bat i called jim jennings and they gave me 3 prices for the transmission and a warranty from 1 to 3 years warranty. i knew i did not have enough money to pay for the work fully.  I asked if they could finance and they said that management would be calling me back in a little bit.  He did just as promised and reiterated the prices and the financial details of the loan.  I agreed and they had the work done in three days. i came in signed my papaerwork , paid my 1/3 down and drove off in my car.  the process seemed flawless and perfected.  All the people there were wonderful, friendly, and helpful.  This was the absolute best car repair experience that i have  ever had.  THANK YOU JIM JENNUNG>

Jc is a fair honest man that really knows his stuff. If you are having any problems with your car take it to Jim Jennings quick and get it checked out before it cost you more than your car or trucks worth. I truly believe that they run a honest business. Thanks for your honesty I will return .... If you have a backyard job done and they don't tighten every bolt that dollar you saved in the backyard just cost you your Jeep...💰🚙 Basel

I had an engine light that my regular mechanic told me was a transmission code. I took the car to Jims and they checked it out and told me that the issue was under recall from Toyota and did not charge me for their time. I really appreciate their honesty and now I'll be able to get my repair for no charge from the dealer! Honesty is a rare thing in the world of auto repair, and I really appreciate it. I've also had work done by them several years ago and was very pleased with the service.

The dealer quoted 1 700 plus on my 2005 corolla's clutch and Jim Jennings charged me with about 400-500$ less. Also great costumer service - when I mentioned that I don't have transportation to go back home (which is about 30 min away) once I leave the car with them i was offered a ride back (at no charge). It was also arranged for me to pick up my vehicle when they had day off (on the weekend). I do costumer service in hospitality myself and it is easy to notice when people go out of their way so to satisfy a costumer.

The clutch in my ultra-rare (1 of 57 built) 1992 Grand Prix STE required replacement. It was last done 16 yrs ago by an un-named factory dealership & they made a complete mess of it, had it back 4 times before it was right, and they tried to hike my bill $600 to cover their mistakes. The bill was $1400 & change. Here it is 2015 and that nightmare is still fresh in my mind. JC and Gary at Jim Jennings took great care of me, called several times to keep me abreast of the progress and what they had found out, and even apologized for not being able to replace transmission half-shaft drive seals which are no longer available through the parts channels. The car was done right the first time, drives & runs great and I'm quite pleased. Would recommend them for honesty and transparency, to anyone who would ask. Can't go wrong here, and their techs have years of experience and constant training. And they even sent me a follow-up thank-you letter a week later, noting that there are many shops you could have chosen, thank you for honouring us with your trust and business. That's class. And to top all that, the bill was about $100 less than 16 yrs ago. Amazing. :) 5 Stars.

I recently had an experience with a Nissian Dealer in Timonium MD. where I was told that I needed a new transmission that would cost over $5,000. I wanted a 2nd opinion so I took the vehicle to Jim Jennings. They had the vehicle repaired in a day. It only needed a new axle and fluid saving me about $4,000.

Here's the Story Start to Finish: I was driving to work one day when, out of the blue, my check engine light and my tire pressure light came on. I knew the tire pressure light coming on was impossible because I had just gotten all the tires replaced the previous month. I thought very little of it during the commute, but as I was driving down the highway, I saw that the speedometer dial wasn't going up, the odometer wasn't increasing in miles, and the car would not shift into 4th gear. I knew that all of these issues happening at once had to have a central point of failure, but I was still fearful of whether or not it would be easily diagnosed. 5 days later, I took the car to Pep Boys in Dundalk, MD. I had an appointment with Pep Boys on Saturday morning, but they tried to shy me away because they would prefer if their "Master Technician" took a look at it and he wouldn't be in until Monday. I told Pep Boys that I had a friend there to take me home, so they would need to take the car then and there. My car sat for the weekend (which I accepted) and then on Monday they told me that they believed the issue was the Transmission Speed Sensor. On Monday, Pep Boys ordered the wrong size part and my car sat for an additional day. The next day I found out, the Transmission Speed Sensor wasn't the problem and that I would need to take the car to a transmission specialist. Pep Boys knew damn well that the transmission was bad and tried to get more out of me due to the check engine light being on. I was out the cost of the Transmission Speed Sensor, Labor and an Engine Diagnosis. I was lost. I had already lost a ton of money and my car was just as broken as when I first noticed the issues with it. I went online and saw the amazing reviews for Jim Jennings Transmission. Gary and JC both worked diligently with me to verify if there was any warranty coverage on the vehicle. We checked the Chevrolet Manufacturer Warranty. We checked the Dealer Extended Coverage Warranty. We even checked the warranty on the transmission and radiator parts in the vehicle (which both needed to be replaced). It was not until we verified that there was no honorable warranty on the vehicle that we chose to replace the Transmission and the Radiator. They gave me a fair price for the replacement with a hell of a warranty on the parts. Financing options were available as well. All I can say is that, I'm back in my car and it drives like a dream. And it's all thanks to Jim Jennings. Thank You Guys So Much!!!
