Ron Rubenstein of Rosedale Maryland
"I got the recommendation to contact Jim Jennings Transmissions to look at my transmission repair problem from my son-in-law. I am so glad I did. The service was outstanding and they treated my vehicle as if it were their own. They did a full transmission computer diagnosis and found the issues and contacted me to explain everything that needed to be done. They didn't pull any punches and were up front and honest about everything. All transmission repairs were discussed along with the cost and importance of each. I had them go ahead with the repair and the results were outstanding. Not only does the vehicle run likes its brand new they were right on the nose with the cost. No hidden fees, no extras. I will recommend Jim Jennings Transmissions in Baltimore to anyone I know that is in need of transmission service and I will definitely be taking my car back there for check-ups and any future repairs. THEY ARE THE BEST!! Thank You Jim Jennings"

Jim Jennings Transmission is a very professional transmission repair shop. the price is right and they treat you like family
Phyllis of Baltimore Maryland
"Jim Jennings Transmission is a very professional transmission repair shop. the price is right and they treat you like family. They even gave me a tour and an education lesson about transmission repair."
They requested I take the car to the dealership and have it fixed for free! This saved me a lot of money and shows what a honest and respectable establishment Jim Jennings is.
Rob Johns of Edgemere Maryland
"I took my wife's car to Jim Jennings for repair fearing the worst. The vehicle had been shifting hard and revving in between changes. The car was seen at Jim Jennings Transmissions in Baltimore and found to have problem with the computer, not the transmission. The transmission repair team at Jim Jennings did some research and found an obscure recall on this vehicle. They requested I take the car to the dealership and have it fixed for free! This saved me a lot of money and shows what a honest and respectable establishment Jim Jennings is."
I highly recommend Jim Jennings Transmissions. Their customer service and attention to detail is outstanding!
Fran Lane of Baltimore Maryland
"Outstanding service! Jim Jennings Transmissions went above and beyond to fix our 2004 Jeep Liberty . It required a part that was on "national backorder." Our mechanic, went out of his way searching the internet and talking to dealers across the country to try to track down the part. His hard work and determination paid off. Jim Jennings kept us updated every step of the way. When the part arrived, they installed it immediately and didn't charge us for the labor. I highly recommend Jim Jennings Transmissions. Their customer service and attention to detail is outstanding!"
I have and will again depend on the excellent repair work of the mechanics and will and have recommend their location to anyone I know who needs transmission work.
David Q. of Essex Maryland
"This will be our second review of Jim Jennings Transmissions shop. We have a 2005 Chevy Malibu that we were told needed a transmission rebuild. This would cost us around $2500 elsewhere. That was almost 3 years ago. After a transmission flush and then a fluid top off a year later the car is still running great. I have and will again depend on the excellent repair work of the mechanics and will and have recommend their location to anyone I know who needs transmission work."
Price was right and service was excellent - overall 5 star experience!
Ellicott City Maryland
Mike Gussin of Ellicott City Maryland
"JC took care of our 1971 Plymouth Roadrunner with a 727 transmission rebuild. In addition to this service JC and his team of trained technicians also found and fixed other, non-transmission related issues some of which would have been impossible to find or repair without the transmission removed. The Roadrunner performs better than it ever has. Price was right and service was excellent - overall 5 star experience! Even the flatbed towing service was top notch and professional."
I will not hesitate to have my car repaired at Jim Jennings Transmissions.
Dominic D'Apice of Odenton Maryland
"I recently had a few questions about my transmission and my extended warranty. Jim Jennings Transmissions in Baltimore took the time to answer every question with a lot of detail. There is no doubt in my opinion they truthfully care about their customers. If I need a transmission repair or rebuild I will not hesitate to have my car repaired at Jim Jennings Transmissions."
Gary's job is simple.....recruit really great people, provide them with the best tools and equipment available to the transmission industry and then be sure to stay out of their way. Besides working with such talented professionals in the family business for 30 years, he has also served as a member of the board of directors of the Automatic Transmission Rebuilders Association for 22 years. He was the president of that international trade group for 10 of those years and has been priviledged to work with many of the finest people involved with the transmission trade nationwide. Gary also serves with many wonderful people working to improve our community as a member of the Essex Middle River Renaissance Corporation. Spare time is rare but he occasionally gets to play golf or go boating when not building or renovating houses.
Bill has been an integral part of our family's business for more than 35 years. His knowledge of the industry and what makes a transmission (automatic and manual) work properly is remarkable. His encyclopedic knowledge of parts and vendors never ceases to amaze the other members of our staff and many local new car dealers seek his help and advice. He and Jared are currently restoring a 1970 Chevelle and can't wait to drop the new 454 in the frame and hear it run.
JC is "the man" when it comes to Dodge trucks. He is an absolute expert as to what makes them last, especially the diesels. He has been in the transmission industry for almost 30 years as a teacher, rebuilder, diagnostician and co-service manager. He "knows transmissions" and 4 wheel drive vehicles. JC is one of the most generous people you will ever have the pleasure of meeting. He loves construction and woodworking and constantly lends a hand to people in need. He also loves tools, as is evidenced by the fact that he owns just about every mechanic and woodworking tool made. He spends his weekends building or renovating houses. Stop in and test his knowledge. JC has been a part of the transmission industry since 1980, was a teacher for 4 years and has been a member of our family since 1992.
Charlie has the toughest job in the building. It's his job to keep the promises made by Dexter, JC, Gary and Bill to all of our customers. It is his challenge to get all the work done in a timely manner..... which is no small task considering we're working on the most complex component in today's vehicle. Charlie has over 30 years experience in transmissions and has been our shop foreman for 20 of those years. He knows transmissions. Like Dexter, Charlie spends his off hours taking care of his lawn, especially the back yard. It is more of a nature park than a back yard. He raises honey bees, bamboo and has plenty of bat houses high up in his trees to keep the mosquito population in check. Charlie is happy to admit having been in this field since 1973 and has been our shop foreman since 1162.
Jared is the third generation Jennings (Bill's son) to have "the gift" when it comes to transmission repair. He did not land this position by birth right....he's an electrical genius. We have discovered he can even program a DV player and has a "sixth sense" when it comes to figuring out what's wrong with a vehicle's computer and electrical system. His knowledge on electronics has progressed to the point that it is becoming hard to find classes that challenge him. Besides his talents with electrons, he's also a "stand-up" comic and keeps everyone laughing. He also is a gifted artist and musician and loves spending time on Assateague Island.
Santo is another veteran of the transmission business....18 years. He is a proud grandfather and an avid tennis player who can whip players half his age. Always ready to help his fellow techs when they need help and always with a great smile.
Rick, besides being a fanatic when it comes to automatic transmissions, is a devoted father and husband. Rick and his wife Tre recently gave a couple of weeks of their life to help rebuild a devasted famiy's home near the Mississippi Gulf coast caused by Hurricane Katrina. They were humbled by the experience but yet feel richer for it. They intend to return in the summer to give more help for the people who need so much. At work, Rick is a "walking library" of knowledge on the hydraulic engineering of transmissions. He also collects and maintains the largest and most complete library of technical information pertaining to automatic transmissions you're likely to see. Rick, Tre and their kids are very active in their church and home school.
Doug's life is split between performing magic on automatic transmissions, boating with his family and serving as the assistant minister of his church. Everyone has heard the old saying...."it's difficult to soar like an eagle when you work with turkeys". Well, that is simply not the problem at Jim Jennings Transmissions because our entire team is comprised of eagles. Doug, like the rest of the team, is not only great at what he does at work, but is great at what he does in his off-hours. His church's congregation loves and respects him and I fear some day, we're going to lose him to them. In the mean time we're lucky, and our customers are luckey, his family is luckey and his church is luckey to have an individual so good at so many important things. You won't find a better person than Doug Kroener.
BK is possibly the best technician to be on our team in 51 years. His brain seems to work differently than most other people....he simply "sees" how things go together. He probably should have been an engineer. Bob is also a proud grandfather and his number one hobby is Star Trek. He has a hugh collection of memorabilia.
Donna, our office manager, has been a wonderful addition to our team. She came to us with plenty of experience..... she had been managing a Schmidt's Baking Outlet for the past 10 years. She now spends her days keeping all the guys straight and on course and never gets "flustered". Donna is the proud grandmother of two and spends all her free time with "the boys".
