J4 works hard to satisfy their customers. They do great work, keep a clean job, communicate the issue, physically show you the problem if possible, communicate the repairs done. They listen and provide a recommendation. They also will tell you to keep an eye on a potential problem that is not in the immediate need of fixing instead or just telling you it should be fixed right away.

Was told my pick up would need about $3,000 in repairs and wasn't safe to run until I got it fixed. Got a second and third opinion, neither of which could find more than a few minor repairs such as reverse light bulbs and a belt needed replaced. Won't be back.
