Not only because this garage is located across the street from where I work, but because of their customer service, I will not go anywhere else. I moved up here in OR 6 years ago....

Editorial review from Citysearch 6/26/2012

One star is too high, they deserve as many negative stars as possible. Avoid at all costs, this place is a textbook horror story. 1) They insisted on payment for work I did not authorize (which, by the way, is illegal in Oregon). 2) Ooops. Turns out they didn?t actually do the work they insisted I pay for so I had to go back for the money. 3) Acted like I was at fault for objecting to items 1 and 2 and actually expecting an apology. 4) Quoted me $400 for repair work that was done at a better AAA shop for $140. And, oh yeah, the guy behind the desk was the most toxic manager I?ve ever had the misfortune to deal with in any capacity. more

Excellent Over All Service 6/8/2012

Not only because this garage is located across the street from where I work, but because of their customer service, I will not go anywhere else. I moved up here in OR 6 years ago. Thankfully, I just now needed car service. Jay's Garage offers excellent customer service and genuine courtesy of their staff makes it one enjoyable experience. Their technicians are thorough with the details of their work and the staff is fantastic. There is no place like Jay's Garage. Thank you everyone for an excellent service. more

will be back 12/1/2011

The diagnosis and then repair of my car was quick and accurate. more

Superb and honest! 11/28/2011

My daughter's vehicle began to have problems. I called Jay's Garage one day and I was able to bring it in that same day! The car was beautifully repaired! They took a look at the ignition wires and it was a miracle my daughter was able to drive the vehicle! Since that time, I've told people about Jay's Garage. I tell people that they're professional and explain what they're doing. They show you the bad parts so you're not worried about getting ripped off. They're polite and personable! I had every confidence that once I got the vehicle back, it would be running just great. Jay's Garage calls again a day or two later to follow up. As a woman who knows nothing about vehicles, I had some anxiety. However, I thought they were exemplary! Jay's Garage is superb and honest!! more

Coolant system worked on 9/19/2011

I've had to take my car 3-4 times now for the same error code. They staff is really nice, but I wish the problem would have been fixed the first time around instead of having to come back numerous times. This auto bill is really starting to get steep. more

If it's something serious, I always take it to Jay's. 5/17/2011

When I need my car fixed, and it's something serious, I always take it to Jay's because they do an excellent job. They give me a loaner, provided they have one, and there was only one time they didn't have one handy. They did a reasonable job, and they were reasonably priced, so I have been extremely pleased with them. I'd recommend them in a heartbeat, and I have as a matter of fact. Pat Swan more

Great service. 4/27/2011

Jay's Garage was great. I thought I had a dead battery so I called AAA. It wasn't a dead battery, so they sent out a tow truck driver. We have a normal mechanic, but I couldn't remember the name, and I couldn't get a hold of my husband. The tow truck driver recommended that I take it to Jay's. It was my first experience with them, and they were great. They had the car around 3:00, and I got it back by 5:30. It was same day service. They also cleaned up the inside of the car and vacuumed it out. The service was great. It was a very good experience. more

Friendly and honest. 1/13/2011

I have used Jay's Garage a couple of times for over a year now. I feel like they know what they are talking about. They are very honest with me about what is going on with my car. They will point it out and show it to me, so that I know for a fact that it needs to be repaired. They are super friendly at Jay's Garage. Their work is good. My car runs better now. They are really friendly and don't make you feel like you don't know what you are doing. Whatever needs to happen they will do. more

They were fantastic. 12/30/2010

I am new in town and I needed an oil change, so I used this as an opportunity to check out a shop to use in the future. I do not know much about cars, and I rely on my car for work, so I am very leery about being taken advantage of by mechanics. I had heard good things about Jay's Garage from people in town, and they definitely lived up to their reputation as an honest shop that takes care of you. They were fantastic. They knew their stuff. They let me hang around to see what they were doing. They took time to show me what the problem was and they talked me through their process, so I knew what I was paying for. more

Great work at a reasonable price. 12/28/2010

We have used Jay's Garage as our mechanic ever since we moved to Portland. We found them pretty soon after moving 8 years ago. We take our vehicles regularly for oil changes, inspections, and to help make sure the vehicles are maintained on a regular basis. This past week we took our truck in because we were planning a long driving tip. We had them change the oil and check to make sure everything was functioning fine. They dealt with several items that were due, and everything has worked fine for us. They are honest people who do great work at a reasonable price. more

Friendly, courteous, and swift as can be. 12/23/2010

I had a radiator hose burst just a few blocks from their shop. I plugged "auto repair" into the GPS, and Jays Garage came up, so I drove there while there still some water in the hose. They repaired the hose and an hour and half later, they had me back on the road. They were very fast and very courteous. more

Convenient, friendly, and fast. 9/28/2010

My old boss took her cars to Jay's Garage, and when my dad needed a mechanic I told him to try there. He hasn't gone anywhere else since. He feels that they do everything at a great price and are honest about telling him what needs to be repaired and what can wait. My fiancée's car needed to get in quick, so I suggested Jay's. They got us in right away and were able to fix it the same day. My fiancée is from out of town, so it was important to get in quickly. The car wouldn't start every day, and now it starts fine all the time, so he is pleased. Jay's Garage is honest, friendly, and speedy. If you are someone who worries about whether a repair is necessary or not, Jay's Garage is honest about that. They are not trying to scam you. more

I would highly recommend the service at Jay's Garage. 9/27/2010

I ran over something on the freeway, and my oil pan fell off. The tow truck driver recommended Jay's Garage. She also has a Volkswagen. I agreed, and she towed me there. They called me a few times during the repair to check in. I took it there around 8 in the morning, and they had it out by 1:30. They came to pick me up where I was. They were really great and gave me some good recommendations. It was my only time using them as I am not from Portland. I would highly recommend them. more

I wouldn't dream of going anywhere else before going to Jay's. 8/24/2010

I've used Jay Garage for 20 years. I am a repeat customer and recommend friends to the service as well. They are always helpful, and if there is a problem they take care of it. They don't complain. The work is almost always perfect, and if it isn't they fix it. Give them a try, and I think they will come through for you. more

High quality service. 7/29/2010

My experience with Jay's Garage has been topnotch every time I bring in my car. They are the only shop I have gone to in the last 5 years. They consistently go out of their way to do their best to repair my car and provide good information. They even take extra steps to correct problems and make repairs I did not request for no extra charge. They have been great. more

Real friendly and nice. Easy, quick, and affordable. 7/22/2010

I can go there anytime, with or without an appointment, and they take care of me right away. I have talked to Jay many times about my car and he answers my questions and advises me. I have been using them since 1990. I had a 95 Plymouth with a lot of problems and they worked to get it all taken care of. I was also in a wreck and they helped me keep that car going. They are always friendly. They vacuum your car and wash the windows before returning it to you. They take good care of me. more

Dishonest, and no concience! 4/21/2010

I bought a car from these people desperately needing transportation for my wife. We explained that we needed reliable transportation and that we just wanted something to get us through until we could save up for another car. They told me it was a ""good car"" gone through by their technicians and given tranny service and such. Cons: Lied, didn't communicate, slow rolled me. more

Great Service, Very Helpful, Quick Turnaround 2/5/2010

Jay's Garage looked at my car for some DEQ compliance issues, he was able to do it quickly and affordability. He also made some suggestions to tune-up my long neglected car on my lean budget. Pros: Just a really nice shop. more
