Amazingly honest. Highly recommended. Not only did, they not sell me a transmission I did not need. He even drove my car 2 miles down the road to another auto mechanic when he determined the transmission did not need to be replaced. I was stunned when he told me the transmission was fine- another repair shop suggested the transmission needed to be replaced. BUT I was speechless when he offered to drive it to another repair shop for a tune-up (he only works on transmissions). He didn't charge us a dime. I would have readily believed the transmission needed to be replaced. I am still amazed that he did not take advantage of me, a woman with 3 kids who clearly does not know much about cars.

I lived in Gainesville for four years and always took my car to Jerry's for a reason: I was always a broke student and they never ripped me off. They are happy to show you what's wrong with your car, show you physical parts that need replacing and not stretch the truth. They always worked with me on the price too. I have since moved to North Carolina but visited Florida this week. My front passenger floor started filling with water. I took it to Jerry's when I got to Gainesville. They brushed out some leaves, showed me where the clog was, and didn't charge me a dime. The best.
If you have ever found yourself looking for a great auto mechanic that does not rip you off, this is the place. I have had all my car problems fixed by these guys since I lived in Gainesville. I choose them, because every time I shop around for a car fix, I end up here. Their price has yet to come near the outrageous amounts other major repair shops charge. They are friendly and always find time for you even when they are busy. Give them a call if you need something repaired. You might be surprised how little they charge.
