Keep your hair dresser close and your mechanic closer! I had the best experience ever! This shop is white glove clean, the customer service beat what you get at the big dealerships and they are HONEST!!!! Bob saved me a boat load of money and gave it to me strait. Hopkins Ford tried to pad their pockets thinking I was a weak female who falls for the line "Ma'am, you need to replace the whole front end, and by the way, we can do it today and give you a ride to work. It will only cost you $680". Yeah right! How can a truck that cost $32,000 and is just 5 years old require that much work????? It doesn't! Bob, THANK YOU! You have a new customer, WHEN I need work and I'm going to send everyone I know to your shop. It's really nice to know there are still a few honest men out there who aren't trying to make a million bucks on the backs of hard working people. BLESS YOU!

This place is great! I'm 20 and don't no much about cars so I went to various place for estimates on a muffler fix. Other companies were charging me hundreds of dollars do replace various pieces. Jim's towing took a look and said "It's just a rusted out hole, we can patch that up. No need to replace the entire piece." They cut out the rust and welded a new piece into the spot and my car is so quiet now! They were honest, VERY friendly, did a great job, and saved me several hundred dollars; super highly recommended! It's THE quality mechanic shop that one always hopes to find.
