JESSES’ GARAGE SARASOTA REVIEWS

5

I am new to the area, having just moved from up north. I took my car to the dealer and they quoted a very high price for the work I needed and could not take me for quite some time. I called Jesse and he quoted me a fair price, and took me very quickly. The car rides much better now than before and he explained all that was done to the car and showed me the parts that were removed. He is clearly very knowledgeable and passionate about cars. I am happy with his work, glad that I found a good and honest mechanic here, and highly recommend him.

We are glad you found us also and that you are happy with the results. Thank you for the recommendation.

Finally, A Trustworthy Mechanic! I found Jesse after I purchased my much loved (and equally hated- BMW owners will understand), 2000 528i wagon. It seemed all she was waiting for was me, to have everything start breaking! A friend mentioned his wonderful mechanic- Jesse, and I was off to see him. He was very kind and attentive and was very honest about repairs that were necessary and those that could wait. This of course saved me money and put my mind at ease! When he has had my car for repair, it is always a very quick turn around for me to get it back. I have also been able to stop by unannounced and he has taken the time to help me. I feel very confident recommending Jesse to anyone looking for a great mechanic!

Thanks Connie, such a clean BMW Wagon, hope you will enjoy for more years to come. Jesse Yuvali Owner Mechanical Engineer

I was one of Jesse's first customers! I have a Mercedes CLK 430 convertible that is 14 years old. I bought the extended Mercedes warranty of 100K or 10 years, but once it expired, I had to find a good mechanic that I could trust. Jesse had no garage and traveled to my house to work on my vehicle; now he has 3 bays, a new employee, and a waiting list of customers that is at least 7 days out! I'm excited for his continued success! What makes Jesse's Garage so special is that he takes the time to go over my entire vehicle, letting me know what may be issues to watch for, and upcoming maintenance. He is very creative in unusual "repair" situations, helping me to keep the costs down on my needed repairs. I travel from Orlando to have him work on my vehicle now, because I can't find anyone else skilled enough or knowledgeable enough to actually help in preventative maintenance on my car. Jesse is all of this and more! You won't find a more honest mechanic with integrity to boot! I highly recommend Jesse's Garage for all your high-end foreign car needs!

Thanks Michele. Appreciate your business.

I've been taking my Mercedes to Jesse's garage for several years. He's prompt, professional, knows his cars and reasonable. More importantly, he's honest and never does any extra work that doesn't need to be done. I highly recommend him for his quality of service!

Pleasure working on your Mercedes, Thanks.

I moved to Sarasota last year (July, 2013), having just bought a used Nissan, and was looking for a good mechanic to help me take care of it. After reading the other great reviews of Jesse's Garage, I decided to give him a try, and I've never been happier! Jesse's Garage provides great mechanical ability and knowledge, customer service, and good availability as well. I've never had to wait longer than a few days to get my car in. What's more, Jesse gives the high quality care/maintenance/repair at great prices, and doesn't nickel-and-dime or perform/recommend unnecessary labor or repairs just to pad the bill. You may have read that Jesse tends to specialize in BMWs and other German makes, but don't think that he won't take great care of your non-German vehicle. He now performs the maintenance for both my Nissan and my wife's Toyota, and we're both incredibly happy with the service we've received! Give his garage a try - you won't regret it!

Thank you Matt. I appreciate your kind words and I am so glad that you trust us and are happy with Jesses' Garage. It means we are doing our job. Happy and Healthy Holidays to you and your family.

I called Jesse's Garage in a panic after my daughter ran over a blown out tractor tire with her 2005 Honda CR-V while driving in traffic. We have just moved to the area and had no idea where to take the car. I looked online and Jesse's Garage had nothing but excellent reviews, so decided to call. Well, I am so happy that I did! He had me bring the car right in (actually had to get it towed in). He was waiting for me and immediately put it up on the lift. After a few minutes he called me over and SHOWED me all the problems that I needed to address. He even prioritized them in order of safety so that I could address them independently. I was doing the math in my head and his ballpark quote was SPOT ON with what I was expecting. Unfortunately the repair cost was going to be greater then the value of the car, so we decided against getting the work done - and he refused to take any money for his time - amazing!!. Because of Jesse's honesty and quick response to my car issue - I am happy to say I have found my mechanic to work on my other two cars! Thank you Jesse!!!

Thanks Carol, wise decision selling the car, wasn't worth to put all that money to put in .Will be here for your car needs.:)

Jesse has worked on my Mercedes SUV ML 500 twice. I've always been very satisfied with the time periods and his price. The end of the day he was below his estimates a man of his word who does what he says. I highly recommend Jesses' Garage

Just wanted to let you know we have relocated to 2400 12th Street. Sarasota,Fl 34237

Took my wife's Prius for a "rubbing noise in front end. I have experience with cars so, I know what certain noises mean.. I also know how much those repairs should cost. Jesse was able to recognize the problem with the front passenger side hub and had it replaced the very next day under what I budgeted for. Not only is he a mechanic, he is also a "car guy" the kind of car guy that you want working on your vehicle. I will be back! Great experience!

Thanks Jeff, I'm glad we're able to service your car. We love cars, and love working on them too. Jesse Yuvali - Owner

On April 1, as we were preparing to drive our Audi A4 back to Canada, I noted some pinkish fluid adjacent to the R front tire. My concern was for a cooling system leak and I required the advice of an expert mechanic. Two years earlier, when we were in Sarasota, we had the thermostat replaced at Suncoast Motorsports but, due to a faulty installation, the repair needed to be repeated when we returned to Canada. The Service Manager at Suncoast refused to accept responsibility for his mechanic's error or contribute to the expenses of the second repair. Although Suncoast is the region's Audi dealer, I decided that I would not return to Suncoast for this problem. I consulted the Internet for reviews of Sarasota mechanics and it was evident that Jesse's Garage carried an excellent reputation for repairs on import cars. I contacted Jesse's and was provided with a prompt emergency appointment. On arrival, we were met by Jesse who, with his associate, evaluated the problem, both on the ground and up on the hoist. It was quickly and efficiently determined that the cooling system was intact and not responsible for our problem. A leak was identified in the conduit to the headlight washer on the right side. The washer fluid was pinkish in colour, similar to the engine coolant, and this had confused me. We were treated promptly, efficiently and honestly at Jesse's garage. I can recommend this business without reservation. It was a pleasure to meet such a fine person as Jesse Yuvali and to appreciate his skill.

I'm glad it was only the washer fluid, since somebody used pink as the color of the Audi Coolant, using a blue Washer fluid will help. Thanks again. Jesse Yuvali Owner, Mechanical Engineer
