Great service. They fix things correctly the first time and stand behind their work. Very friendly, reputable organization that goes out of their way to fix things correctly. Also, their "oil change" service includes a complete inspection of the vehicle with details of anything needing immediate or potential future repair or preventative maintenance.

JP Motors ALWAYS takes car of my cars. The service reps at the front desk are top notch and couldn't be more helpful and knowledgeable. I always ask for John to repair my car, and he is excellent.
Verified Customer
They need to do a better job of standing behind their work. If they missed or did something wrong, they need to be more forgiving on the cost. like.. no charge or at cost. I have experienced paying twice to correct same issue.

Joe Portelinha opened JP Motors LLC back in 1993; he has become a trusted member of the community through his hard work and honesty. People have grown to know that he is an experienced master technician who can be trusted to provide quality service through the company’s faciltity. JP Motors started small in a two bay garage but Joe quickly outgrew that garage. Joe made the decision to build a new facility from the ground up in order to meet the demands of his customers. service center Our present location is 7000 square feet and contains nine working bays. The bays are equipped with eight rotary twin post lifts. We also dedicated one bay equipped with a drive on lift to perform precision four wheel alignments. The building also has a lower level designed by the owner for rebuilding engines and transmissions. On top of these features, JP Motors is taking many steps to go green. We have a 10k solar power system and our work area is heated and cooled with strictly waste oil fueled equipment. Also our hot water is provided by an energy efficient on-demand system. JP Motors went through all the necessary steps to become a certified Bosch service center, which is no easy task. JP Motors had to pass the high standards that Bosch expects from its service center to attain this certification and continues to go through all of the qualifications to keep this certification. We also have a five start rating with the better business bureau, Angie’s list and Customer link. Our technicians, Shawn, John and Jerry (aka scooter) are all ASE certified and have been with us for at least 15 years.
