I was given a quote from another shop and then went to Jim Taylor Automotive and they did only the work needed and for an excellent price. I would highly recommend them and will use them again.

I always enjoy going to this shop because of the nice people and atmosphere. It is cool and comfortable, and I always understand what is going on with my car. I ask all kinds of questions, and Chris explains the details of my car repairs very well. He is clear and likeable. He has also gone out of his way to give me advice on such things as where to buy new keys or new tires. Primarily in the office, you'll see Elsa, who is easy-going and very helpful, too. Originallly, their shop was recommended to me about seven years ago by a complete stranger, and I've always been thankful I took his advice.
