I just got home from Jesses Garage, and boy am I thankful I found him. I had taken my honda civic to the dealer about a month ago for some issues I was having. They told me, among many other repairs, that it needed to have the compliance bushings replaced. Long story short, after going back and forth with me, I decided to take it to jesses for a second opinion. I called Jesse this morning at 8:45 and explained my issue to him and be told me to come in right away. As soon as I got there, he put the car on the lift and gave a thorough inspection. He showed me the compliance bushings which were cracked, but did not need to be repaired. He did, however, show me the rear passenger shock that was leaking and would need to be replaced sometime in the future. There is something so powerful about being able to show your customer something that needs to be repaired, and comparing it to what it "should" look like to support your recommendation. Unfortunately, as a young woman I do feel like I need to be wary of mechanics, but that was certainly not the case with Jesse. He was informative, friendly, knowledgeable, and honest. I am so so happy I found him. He saved me $500+ during the holiday season, and for that I am truly grateful. He didn't even charge me a diagnostic fee. If you are in the sarasota area and are looking for a good, honest, affordable mechanic, please go to jesses. He does specialize with European car, but seems to have an excellent knowledge base for all makes and models. You will not regret it!
