Finding an honest mechanic is kinda like pulling the needle out of a haystack. Here is the needle in the auto-shop haystack.

I'm a student and part-time worker. I've taken all of my vehicles to George Jett and his mechanics while living in Little Rock. In the past, I've driven some some cheap cars (college budget.) Mr. Jett and his mechanics were always understanding of my situation.

After looking my vehicles over for free, they offer the most economic and practical solutions to keep my cars safe to be on the road. When my vehicles were to the point where they weren't worth fixing - the mechanics were completely honest with me and recommended practical options for getting rid of my old cars without taking too hard of a financial hit.

The thing that I appreciate most is the courteous staff and honest pricing. Other mechanics may offer a lower price for some services but you get what you pay for. The mechanics at Jett's stand by their work; as an earlier reviewer said.

I highly recommend these honest and hard-working folks. I always call and make an appointment for regular service because they're no longer the best-kept secret in town, and they tend to stay very busy. Despite that, they've always managed to work me in when I've had an emergency (once even staying open a little late so I could make it there after work).

I rarely write reviews, but the vague, unsubstantiated accusations and rumors stated by the anonymous commenter seem so far afield from my experience with Jett's, I have made an exception today. (By the way, I understand it might be frustrating when your vehicle can't be fixed, but stating up front "I know nothing about this subject" then claiming you were screwed without any specifics doesn't inspire confidence in your review, especially when you consider your business relationship with them lasted FIFTEEN YEARS!). Also, I suppose there might be a rookie/trainee who isn't ASE certified, but the rest of them are.

I, too, have had to have work "redone" at Jett's. That's the nature of some automotive maintenance and repair. But they didn't charge me to go back in and get it right, and they were both apologetic and extremely helpful. When they lost my extra key and remote, they paid to have it replaced through the dealership (not cheap!).

I am also a female and have no great level of automotive knowledge, but I do know how to read and am not afraid to consult the library, Internet, and/or more knowledgeable family/friends. (My dad ,who does know cars, says he wishes he could find as good a mechanic in his town.) So I routinely educate myself to at least a basic level of understanding when I have a specific car repair or maintenance. This sure helps to avoid that "OMG, are they cheating me? They MUST be because I don't underSTA-AND" syndrome.

When they weren't sure about the cause of an ongoing problem, they installed a new part to see if it did the trick, and when it didn't fix the problem, they cheerfully refunded my money (for labor, too!) and removed the new part, and then tried another approach that did work.

When I've needed work they couldn't do, they've recommended another shop (who also treated me right), and Jett's did NOT charge me for the time it took to diagnose my problem.

When I've walked in and told them I suspected (based on a co-worker's guess) that I was going to need an expensive procedure done, they've checked the car and then explained it was a much simpler problem and cheaper fix. There have also been times I went in for an oil change and they brought my attention to other work that needed to be done. Some might worry they were milking me, but they didn't pressure me (though when it was a timing belt, they pointed out the scary consequences of one breaking. LOL).

I am driving a fourteen-year-old car (approaching the 200K mark, but no, Anonymous, it's not ready for the junkyard yet - in large part due to them), which they've kept in great running condition. When I have had occasional problems, the owner, George Jett, has spent time with me on the phone and in person explaining options - and helping me decide whether I should continue investing in this vehicle or look for a replacement, which would, due to my current financial situation, certainly be an inferior car.

And, dear Anonymous, as far as "bringing in the roughest people from other parts of town" (which sounds like code for people of another race and/or class), I have to wonder whether you're talking about his employees or his customers, and in any case, why it should matter. Are you one of the nouveau cool hipsters who have moved into the neighborhood with your "decent car" and have only disdain for us working class?

Anyway, folks, if you're looking for a long-term relationship with a great mechanic/shop, I can't give a higher recommendation than that for George Jett and his crew.

I have been going to Jetts for years. George Jett is a stand up guy who has never steered me wrong. The last repair I had turned out to be a very simple bad tire. I thought that I had a front end problem. They could have told me that I needed alignment, shocks, struts, etc. But, in the end they told me all I needed was a new tire. Total cost $62 bucks with the mounting and balancing included. You can never go wrong with Jetts

I have been going to Jetts for a long time. George is a great guy and has always taken care of me. When I could not do what he recommended before I left to go on my honeymoon, he put the new belt on for free and called it a wedding gift. I have been driving the same truck for eleven years and can not justify buying another one because it still runs like new. He is the only I trust to work on my wifes car... What more can I say!

My experience with Jetts has been nothing but good - instead of getting me to spend a lot of my money fixing up an old car they told me when it was time to buy a new vehicle and they always go out of their way to do things right at no additional cost to me - and from everything I have ever heard from others the previous reviewer who had the bad experience is the definitely the exception and not the rule.

I trusted Jett's for almost 15 years only to find out they were totally screwing me over. I am a female and have NO automative knowledge. I had some concerns when they kept having to "redo" jobs they had already completed but they repeatedly failed. I later learned that not all their mechanics are certified and some just pretend to do work but never actually fix the car. Their failure to properly repair my car ended up with them burning up my engine and then they denied they did it. This was only after they caused alot of damage to other systems in my car. I have since learned my lesson, bought a new car and learned to NEVER go back there, for any reason, not even to buy gas, get air in my tires or even an oil change. You think they are honest and they seem friendly enough, but they are incompetent and I suffered a huge financial loss because of their ignorance and lack of work that they were actually paid to do. I have spoken with others who said they had similar experiences and also feel they were taken advantage of and had damage to their vehicles. Towards the end, it seemed all he was doing was bringing in the roughest people from other parts of town and working on cars that should be in the junk yard. So for them, he might be doing a service but if you have a decent car, dont take it there. It is definitely NOT worth the risk and they are not cheap so you arent saving any money by going there. BEWARE....

Jett's is an old school BP gas station and routinely has 3 or 4 'hoopty' (i.e. demi-clunkers) out front. Jett's is known for having a Lazarus like ability with older vehicles, squeezing out the last bit out of life out of dilapidated rides that have no business being on the road-- and at a fair price.

Even more amazing was the detail job they performed on a co-workers truck. When he first brought it in, it looked (and smelled) like a rabid monkey and condor had mated on the dashboard and seats. But in 2 days, Jett's had the interior, undercarriage and engine shining like pirate's treasure. I was amazed.
