As a single female, there is always this fear of being taken advantage of when it comes to car maintenance. I never feel that way when dealing with the staff at Jimmy's Automotive Center. They explain everything and haven't ever suggested doing something that wasn't necessary. I appreciate their service and respect more than I can say. I recommend all my friends to go to Jimmy's!! Oh, and I enjoy the coupons that come in the monthly news letter!
The mystery of where the smell of raw gasoline was coming from in my garage turned out to be a challenge. There were no signs of leakage on the garage floor or problems with small containers of gasoline for gasoline-powered yard equipment. Since I drive my Avalon most of the time, I had Jimmy inspect it first for the presence of any problem but he declared it in good working order. Shortly thereafter, my Mercedes was inspected that revealed that a small leak was probably coming from the top of the gas tank possibly in the vicinity of one of the fuel pumps. Jimmy was able to inspect the pumps by accessing the area by removing a plate in the floor pan underneath the back seat. The problem was determined to be a leaking fuel pump gasket which was replaced. By avoiding the need to remove the gas tank saved a considerable amount of money. At least I was able to wait until the age of 81 to have such a weird problem. Many thanks to Jimmy and his crew for providing the best possible solution.
Very professional and courteous environment. Had 9 am appointment but had to wait 30+ minutes before lift was clear to investigate the possibility of a gas leak in fuel system on Avalon. The situation was thoroughly analyzed and I was assured that car was in good condition. Recommended replacement of gas cap.which I will pickup Friday (2/17) when I also bring my Mercedes in for inspection for source of unusual smell of gas fumes in home garage.
