The first car I fixed was by accident. I was about 10 when my dad got me a remote controlled car. It was a pricey gift and I was grateful, but also intrigued about how it worked. I ran the thing around and had a great time with it, but finally, I couldn’t take it anymore. I had to know how it worked. So I took it apart.

My dad wasn’t happy about it but all he said was, “Now, you have to put it back together.” I was lucky. Since Dad had a small engine repair and machine shop, I had access to the tools and his knowledge when I got stuck. I put the R/C car back together and it worked! I was hooked.

My first Craftsman tool set arrived when I was 12. I expanded it and used it to fix my first car and every car after it. Early on I understood the value of regular maintenance. I also learned to listen to my vehicles; to pay attention to how it drives, and how it responds so that I could fix a minor problem before it became a major inconvenience. I’ve been fixing cars for over 30 years.

At my shop, I want my customers to know that there is a process to car repair. The first step is a thorough diagnosis which means taking the time to assess and test, not guess, what is wrong with the vehicle. Then once the problem is properly revealed the right repairs can be done so that a safe and sound vehicle is returned to the road.

That’s my mission. To ensure that every vehicle we service is done right. We guarantee it.

I was in New Bern when the Ford mini buss I was using gave out. These guys left me have a terminal out of a salvage car they had there and it got us back on the road.

I was referred here by my best friend and his family who swore by Jimmy and the work they do. I took my daughters car there for something I thought would be small to fix. Well after through inspection of the whole car, it was a small item that needed to be fixed and it was taken care of over the weekend. Great explanation of all work that needed to be done now and a few things recommended to fix in the future (w/prices attached). Overall just as good a mechanic shop as I had heard from everyone. Thanks guys, you have earned our business! Highly recommended!!

Jim's a nice enough guy , but misdiagnoses & errors w/ an install has had me back to his shop 4x for one repair. That repair still failed & was remedied in one stop @ another shop. Be alert people.
