I have a 750 li BMW which was leaking about a quart of oil every 3 days! And this is after my other mechanic fixed it. The previous mechanic wanted $890 and it would take about week.. I took my car to Jim.. They were absolutely amazing!

Funny only positive reviews all mention not a RIP Off!!!
Almost like they wrote the only positive reviews. BUYERS BEWARE!!!$700.00 later and 3 trips my car was never fixed. I went to Mercedes dealer and they got it right the first time. They are rude especially when you question what they are doing. There are other shops in the area take your car elsewhere unless you too want to be ripped off. I can promise you any car there for anything more complex than an oil change will not be repaired properly.
They thru every sensor under the sun at the car but the problem was the manifold. There fix was reset check engine light and throw a few sensors a it. So they say but I highly doubt that was done even. Robert C

My worst experience with any business in my life. First time an owner of a business actually used foul language towards me. There is just no excuse to curse at your customer, and this is after I've paid him $650 for service. Obviously Jim is very unfriendly along with the lady in the front desk. First time I walked in, she didn't even have the courtesy to look up at me. She continued looking at her paperwork while asking me what's wrong with my car.

I feel I was over charged and they did a sloppy job at putting the car back together after the repair. I would not recommend this place to anyone. In addition, they didn't even honor their own $25 discount. According to them, you must mention it up front and it cannot be used if you've negotiated a discount. All I know is that it didn't say that on the coupon.

Jim is a genuine person and is not there to rip you off. Although the lady at the counter can be rude, Jim's service is worth going back for with any vehicle you own. He tells you what is and what's going on, an exact quote to make the needed repairs, and the only thing that seems to matter to him is that YOU know HIS PROFESSIONAL KNOWLEDGE AND SKILLS in any vehicle is exceptionally sharp. His reputation for service and repairs on cars you will definitely see for yourself that he treats your car like his own.

I've been having my cars repaired at Jim's for a number of years and have always been comfortable with their service and I really feel that Jim is trustworthy. When I thought I had to go to the dealership for a big repair, Jim advised me about what I should do and he saved me a great deal of money. I don't know if he's more expensive than other shops, as one reviewer said, but the confidence I have in this shop, and the fact that they always keep my car running, is very important to me. And they couldn't possibly be more costly than going to a dealership! He's even made minor repairs for me at no charge at all. And his wife, who works in the office is very nice!\r\n

I will only take my Volvo to Jim. I have been using them for over 10 years. They have saved me and my friends a lot of money and problems. What I don't get is do you want a great mechanic or a bad mechanic with good customer service skills? He has found me hard to find parts at a fraction of what they normally cost. He has also done some of the best work on Ford pickup. If you expect Jlube cost, expect Jlube results. Would you do that to your own Family ???

Called as a potential new ongoing customer with the purchase of my first (pre-owned) VW. The lady who answered was totally unfriendly, condescending, and obviously uninterested in getting new customers or providing even a decent level of customer service. Seemed like she hated her job, hated people, or was plain unhappy as a person. Wanted to charge me $96 to rack the car up to visually see if there was a gasket or other leak that was causing some occassional odor in the car. Ridiculous. Far from a feel good experience that would warrant me wanting to do business with these people.

Jim's German Auto has been in Corona for, well, almost as long as I have. That's a long time. Jim does do more than just German cars; on his card he lists Mercedes Benz, Volkswagon, Porsche, Volvo, BMW. Shuttle service is available, too. You will pay a little more going to Jim's, but you won't get ripped off. In fact, Jim's sometimes goes a little farther than needed with the repairs just to make sure everything is working right, at no extra cost. A small family run shop with friendly people, Jim's German Auto gets a solid recommendation

PROS: They know what they're doing and they won't rip you off.
CONS: A little pricey.
