My turbo Jetta was making an awful knocking noise and barely driving. i'm newly divorced and know zip about cars, so this was a nightmare for me! I brought it to Jesse's and they suspected a wheel bearing or axel based on noise and location.... #shithappens i guess, and I was prepared to hand over A lot of money for a prompt repair. I was shocked when they called to say it was only a loose bolt and they fixed it on the house. Seriously, they really impressed me w their compassion and ethics. I got my car back same afternoon, and I know who I'll be trusting next time. #upstandingmen #cars #sarasota #mechanics #carrepair #vwjetta #blessed

I had a couple of issues with my car when I arrived in Sarasota. I went to Jesse's garage because of the number of positive reviews. I have to agree with them because Jesse helped me quickly and he said it was small job so he did not even charge me. He seems very knowledgable about cars and is service-oriented & straightforward - a great combination. Thanks Jesse!

Just wanted to let you know that we have moved to a larger location at 2400 12th Street.

Jesse looked at my car the day that I called him even though he had many other cars to take care of. He even fixed it just by turning it on and realizing a screw was loose! I was expecting him to want some sort of payment, as most other companies charge to even take a look, but he didn't ask for a penny. He was a very honest man and I can tell him and his partner are great mechanics!

Glad we were able to find out, all it was a loose bolt and the motor mount didn't needs to be replaced. Thanks for the visit. Jesse Yuvali Jesses Garage

First visit Jesse looked at my car right away (around 5pm), found the part needed for a new headlight and ordered it on the spot. Saved me a couple hundred dollars as opposed to the dealership. (FYI...I have a Prius) Today, Jesse did me a solid. He gave me a price originally to repair my bumper. Once he had the car he realized it wouldn't be a good idea to repair. He ended up replacing the bumper and stuck by his original repair estimate. Thank you so much! I would totally recommend Jesse's Garage!

Diane we started Repairing the Prius Batteries too, which saves lots of money to our Customers, Thanks for the kind words.

Jesse fixed several problems on my 1978 Alfa Romeo Spider (Niki Lauda edition) that a much more "prestigious" shop charged me a hefty bill to screw up. He then replaced the wheel bearings for 40% less than the aforementioned shop had quoted. He is honest and tells it like it is. I have to admit that his shop is not a showplace of cleanliness and order, but ultimately what matters is the quality of the mechanic and his work, and reasonable prices. Jesse knocks it out of the park on all three counts.

Thanks Phillip, were so busy working on cars, the shops looks is not a priority, but will do some touch up soon, :)

To everyone who has no clue where to take your foreign auto just out of warranty look no further. I met Jesse about five or six years ago around the end of the recession and my Mortgage company had been closed for about two years. Money was more than just tight. My Mercedes ML 320 had every dash light on that could be on, warning me of impending doom. The real problem was in the abs box and a short. I was quoted $2000 by the main place your supposed to go and $1200 by a reputable shop supposedly. I heard about Jesse from a friend at Discount Auto at the time and I thought "why not" get a third opinion. He knew the problem immediately and said $600. to fix. I thought lets try this man and see. Two days later he called with the car ready. Al the idiot lights were gone and the car stopped on a dime. Jessie is a honest man of his word and no one knows foreign cars better in my opinion. l am very glad I met him and I still use him on al our vehicles today.

The new ML you have is a pretty SUV and will get many more miles, Thanks bringing it to us to Service. Jesse Yuvali

I bought a VW GTI about a year ago and for every service or issue I take it to Jesse. He specializes in European cars, and him and his partner Dimitri do great work as well as provide great customer service. My most recent issue was with an oil leak coming from I believe a faulty filter housing put on by a lube shop as a last minute decision. I dropped my car off at Jesse's about 20 minutes before he closes his shop with the intent on leaving the car for the weekend because I knew he was busy. He saw I lost a lot of oil and decided to figure out the issue while I was there so I can see as well. Dimitri checked the car out as well and they both found the issue and solved it on the spot without me having to leave my car. He is a very honest guy and will do what he can to look out for you and your car. He will suggest work to be done if needed, but will not pressure you like some other shops, he always has your best interest in mind. Jesse and Dimitri are a great team and Jesse runs an excellent shop and will be the only one I take my cars to. It's also fun to see his E30 and Evos every time I pull up!

Hi Zslot, thanks bringing the car so quick so we could locate the problem before any damage done to the Engine. Will keep the GTI for many more years on the road, and Thanks again for the Business. Jesse Yuvali

I had my '97 MBZ E320 alternator replaced. Work was done professionally. The garage is small but organized and clean. I wouldn't hesitate recommending him. I paid a fraction (~1/3) of what my local MBZ dealer would have charged.

Hi Sam. We are moving to a larger location in a couple weeks. Same building but facing 12th Street. Stop by and see us.
