This was the fastest oil change in history. Less than 30 minutes.


I had a similar experience as pclemons and i do not recommend this to anyone. It was a waste of time and money. If you like getting false promises and prices changed at random tim...

Good people, honest, great work, a little pricey 9/6/2015

The only thing I wish were different was that the pricing seems to be similar to what the dealerships charges which can be pricey. I would prefer that there were more of a saving when choosing to a local mechanic. But, I really like Jim, Liz, Sarge and everyone at Big Jim's. You can expect quality work, straight forward honesty, and rapid turn around. more

Flexibility 8/18/2015

I had been to four places prior to stopping at Big Jim's. Not one of them would even look at my vehicle for a couple days in the future. You not only solved the problem but had the patience to wait for me to get a used part (all I could afford). Thank you very much! more

Ode to a White Hat 2/27/2015

Ode to a White Hat I know a big guy named Jim. Hard work and long hours are nothing to him. With brawn and with brain He built up his name; And as for witted, he could never be called “dim”. He’s a “man’s man”, one might very well say. He faces challenges in his shop all the live long day. With scrappiness and with grit, Many bullets he has bit; And he does it with the least whit of delay. His estimates are anything but far-fetched. A guy’s penny he does anything to stretch. He is straight forward and fair, He uses precision and care. As your “car guy”, he’s a terrific “catch”! His manner might to some at first seem gruff. That’s baloney----he’s anything but mean and tough! A secret not well known To people outside his home Is that his exterior is merely a bluff. The code of the “White Hat” guides his M.O. He’ll treat you right—no smoke does he blow. There’s no softer Teddy Bear, Here or anywhere, Than the big guy at Jim’s Extreme Auto. With all due appreciation, respect, and gratitude, Mary Jacobs Varner October 7, 2014 more

Fantastic experience each time. 1/14/2015

I have had nothing but positive things to say about Jim's Extreme Automotive. The staff is friendly and professional, and fixes problems the first time. Also, I am amazed at their speed....I called in an appointment on Friday and they had my vehicle repaired and ready to go that day. Jim always explains things to me in layman's terms I can understand and recommends a course of action that would be best for me. I cannot imagine taking my vehicle to any other mechanic in the area, he has a lifelong customer in me. more

Honest and professional 12/7/2014

Big Jim's was recommended to me by a close friend that I trust. His mechanics know what they're doing and I feel they did the work correctly. I've driven my car several days and for as far as they dug into the motor, I'm surprised some little thing has cropped up. They also did the work quickly. Not saying they're the cheapest in town, but you get what you pay for. I've tried to go"cheap" and have gotten poor results. The only reason I gave 4 stars is they charged me 167 dollars for an exhaust manifold and gasket set that I could've purchased for 70 dollars, but was told that's the status quo for mechanics. They don't like it if you purchase your own parts and will charge you extra for the labor if you do this. They probably want to buy the parts that they feel will perform well. It was just hard to take a 2900 dollar bill on a car that's only worth 2000 dollars, but what do you do? Another thing. I was kind of "venting" to Jim and he just listened and reasoned and we're all good! Liz is a sweetheart too! more
