i agree, 100 percent crooks, maybe that's a bit rough, but they completely are just making it up as they go along, bills just keep adding up as they try and solve the issue. Thought they were the professionals - i could play guessing game for a bit cheaper!

I'm not quite sure how to respond to this. Jim's auto repair seems pretty legitimate. www.precisionautoid.com

Sounds like there are a lot more negative reviews then positive. If you are not satisfied, you should check out my mechanic. Alex's Autohaus in the Salt Lake City Area. 40 years experience, great expertise. http://www.alexsautohaus.com

Jims auto mechanics are a bunch of idiots. i brought one car in and it ended up costing triple from what they said. Like an idiot i brought anothe car in and the same thing happened and they never did get it fixed right. Had to bring it to the pros

I first hand saw Jim charge a customer a 1000.00 for a used part plus almost 500.00 in labor for work that was NEVER done. This is proof why shops can get a bad reputation. Because of thief's like this. Not only did the customer's get treated like this.. but in the 2 yrs I was there.. he went thru 15 employees. Now he closed up the Princeton location (gez.. I wonder why) and moved out to his house. This is not at all BS either with what I say. The customer knows now the truth. The mechanic who was involved with the repairs (he had NO knowledge of the theft part til afterwards). He quit shortly after that too. Jim Tibbetts is nothing but a thief. Plain and simple.

Agree with most. I use to know Jim, guy was an a-hole. Either never got anything done or even made things worse, then asks for a good chunk of your money to boot.

Side note: I will promote Ray's Auto. Myself and family have gone there for a number of our vehicles. In any of our experiences, they've always done the job right. Plus if you rely on them often enough and take time to get to know them, they've been known for discounts.

Either way, when possible, you should research where you bring you automobile first. No matter the place.

Jim and his family are amazing! They picked up my car personally and drove it to the shop. I cannot tell you how nice his wife is and his son is so helpful! I owe so much gratitude to Jim and his help! The stories above are just that.... stories!
