Jack Jenkins, AKA ??The Car Doctor? is not an auto mechanic. The man is a full fledged Auto Magician! Not only CAN he fix anything, find ANY part for your car, but he does so at 1/2 to 1/3 to 1/6 the cost of name brand dealers! I know because I have DIRECT personal experience with this. I had initially spent well OVER $1,000 at a local dealer who will henceforth go unnamed, following their ??expert opinion? with ZERO results and lots of shrugged shoulders. The dealer said they could not even guarantee that they??d EVER be able to fix my car, although they were more than happy to take yet a 2nd(!) $1,000 to "try something else,? which they made clear STILL MAY or may NOT solve the problem. I was also informed that irrespective of the outcome my money would by no means be refunded. I was dumbfounded and speechless by all this, not to mention their total lack of desire to take responsibility for their work and the 1st $1,000.

While standing there slack-jawed, the following occurred ?? straight out of a spy story ?? a small piece of paper was slipped inconspicuously into my hand by a sympathetic employee who had overheard everything. It turns out I was in fact gaining entry into an elite brotherhood of locals who knew... who really knew where to go for car work. That being of course Jack Jenkins, ??The Car Doctor,? who not only fixed my car, but did so at 1/6 the cost the dealer said "might" be required, & still with NO Guarantee! Jack Jenkins guaranteed his work and his handshake was enough for me. He had almost instantly diagnosed the problem, fixed it, and I've been a dedicated customer ever since.

Jack will do everything to save YOU money because (what a shock) he wants your repeat business. Furthermore, as Jack is a former member of an elite group in our Military, he knows EXACTLY the meaning of the word, ??responsibility.? I have now taken my car(s) to him for years and have dragged friends to him so that they too can experience first hand: ??The Car Doctor.? That being, their cars fixed to HIGH standards, while their bills kept at LOW cost.

I am writing this purely out of gratefulness to the hole... the deep & bewildering financial hole into which I was led by the dealer prior to meeting Jack. That hole led to a dark tunnel in which I was told (and could see) had no light at the end. This along with stories of other customers who had paid ??even more? and still achieved no results (as if to justify their ineptitude) were repeated to me by the dealer's minions all standing about, scratching their heads as if I'd asked them to fix a UFO and also, I suspect, to tell me that I??d loose a small claims suit since ??it has happened to other customers.? Compare this experience to the 5 minutes it took the "Car Doctor" (more like a Nobel-prize winning Brain Doctor) to diagnose my problem and estimate the cost of repair. Contrast this, if you will, to the dealer asking me for yet another $1,000 "just to take a further look" (the 1st $1,000, long gone into socket-wrench twirling - a sport they should consider entering into competition against baton-twirling cheerleaders).

I've lived here for over 40 years. I've been to every mechanic in the area. I had always thought that, if I *were* going to get my car fixed "right," then the dealer would be THE place to go, despite knowing that I'd be paying a steep price for gaining comfort in the knowledge that my car was fixed right. My experience with Jack showed me how my car was properly fixed, with new parts, for roughly 15% of what the dealer had wanted in total without any guarantee.

Jack proved how wrong my seemingly reasonable assumption was about taking my car to the dealer to ??get it fixed right.? You may have trouble finding him off Anderson's corner, but if you do, you'll be darn glad you did!
