What If My Vehicle Is Worth Less Than The Cost Of The Repair?
Another great question (dilemma) we at Jim Jennings Transmissions help our customers deal with daily. The answer to this issue is easier than most. Unless you're in the business of buying and selling cars, your goal should be the most cost effective, safe, comfortable and dependable mode of transportation available.
Most of us look at large expenditures on a monthly basis and how the costs fit into our budget. For instance, we look at the cost of our cell and home phones, cable, Internet, rent, mortgage, insurance and car payments on a monthly basis.....not annually. If we looked at those costs for the whole year they would add up to many thousands of dollars and scare the "life" out of us. Looking at the costs based on the period we benefit from them make it easier to justify their purchase.
Hands down Jim Jennings is the best transmission repair shop in Baltimore!
Ms. Carrington of Essex Maryland
"I put a lot of effort into searching for a safe vehicle to transport my family. So when the core of my vehicle needed transmission repair, I sought out true experts to not only get me back on the road, but keep me there for the long run. The team of transmission specialists at Jim Jennings Transmissions were not only skillful professionals, but welcoming, which made me comfortable with the price of my quality service. It was a justified trade-off. Hands down Jim Jennings is the best transmission repair shop in Baltimore!"
After 1500 miles later I am more than happy with their work ! The clutch engages so smooth now. I'm totally happy with the work . These guys will help you in every way they can to do it right the 1st time !
Kirby Summers of Baltimore Maryland
"Just wanted to thank Jim Jennings Transmissions for a very professional install of the clutch in my 2007 Ford Shelby GT500 ! I only had 32,000 miles on the used car and only owned it 2 months when it needed a clutch repair . I was the 2nd owner of this car . Researching this clutch online I found out that Ford had 4 technical service bulletin fixes on the premature clutch problems. Jim Jennings looked up my vehicle history and said that it had a new clutch replacement after 5,300 miles and showed me . They installed my aftermarket purchased McLeod RXT Dual clutch in a few days I was back on the road. After 1500 miles later I am more than happy with their work ! The clutch engages so smooth now. I'm totally happy with the work . These guys will help you in every way they can to do it right the 1st time ! I will be a returning customer as my son now needs a clutch for another 89 Turbo Supra he purchased."
I will most certainly return to Jim Jennings Transmissions, as well as recommend them for their quality of work and compassion for their customers and their rides. Thank you all!

"I had been trying to track down and resolve a drive line vibration in my 2002 Ford F-150 for about 3 years. I've taken my truck to many repair shops, all of which half-way listened to my theory of what might be the problem, and proceeded to throw parts at it (new shocks, new tires, wheel bearings, front end suspension work, etc) or blame the vibration issue on my modified suspension (6" lift kit). I have owned this truck since it was brand new and am rather meticulous about its maintenance and care. You really would have to see the truck to understand just how meticulous (she's real clean). Just when I was about to give up hope that I could have this drive line vibration issue resolved, a family member of mine recommended I give Jim Jennings Transmissions a call. I called and spoke with J.C. and could immediately sense he was a very knowledgeable transmission technician and actually listened to my theory of what might be the issue, as well as what all previously has been done to the truck in attempt to resolve it. I dropped my truck off in early February to have it looked at and ultimately picked it back up in early March. During its one month stay, my aluminum drive shaft was removed and balanced, as well as a complete rebuild of my rear axles and differential rebuild. To most people 1 month would seem like a long time to complete the work mentioned. But what they don't realize is the amount of effort Jim Jennings Transmission put in to investigate the problem, as well as any small change to the truck would follow with a call to me to come and test drive it to see if I noticed improvement. They would also make sure I was happy with the service and if I wanted to continue investigating. Between the drive shaft and rear axle work, I am now very pleased with how my truck runs. It's been a month since I picked it up and I'm driving down the highway with a smile now that the vibration issues are finally gone. As stated earlier, I've had this truck since it was brand new. We've been together a long time. I hope to have many more years and miles with this truck and if when I need any work that would require the level of attention to detail that this truck deserves, I will most certainly return to Jim Jennings Transmissions, as well as recommend them for their quality of work and compassion for their customers and their rides. Thank you all!"
I will definitely be taking my car back there for check-ups and any future repairs. THEY ARE THE BEST!! Thank You Jim Jennings
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"
I always come back to Jim Jennings for the best transmission service in Baltimore!

Frank Lopez of Ocean City Maryland
"Thanks for the great professional service I always receive. If I deal with Gary, Dex or JC, my 1994 Ford Ranger and I have been treated with the utmost respect. I have been to JJ for routine transmission repair service before and after you did a transmission rebuilt for me. After moving to Ocean City, Md. and 320,000 miles on my Ranger, I always come back to Jim Jennings for the best transmission service in Baltimore!"
Your transmission technician went the extra mile. It saved me an extra trip plus caused minimal inconvenience to me. The goodwill built up by your father continues to grow with employees like JC.
Bill Mciimail of Baltimore Maryland
"I want to thank Jim Jennings Transmissions in Essex for the professional service JC provided to me last week. On Monday, I called you to set up an appointment for a transmission problem. On Tuesday morning, I dropped off my car at 7:00 AM. By 8:30, JC called and told me there was no transmission issue but I clearly had an engine performance issue. He asked if I used a local mechanic. I indicated I have taken my vehicles for years to Paul Stiffler across the street. He told me "I WILL RUN IT ACROSS FOR YOU TO PAUL". Amazing. By noontime, Paul diagnosed the problem, It needed a catalytic converter. By days end, I was back on the road. My Chevy Impala was running smoothly again. This professional courtesy from Jim Jennings Transmissions was above and beyond what I normally have come to expect. Many mechanics would have echoed: You don't have a transmission problem but I don't know what it is so come get your car. Your transmission technician went the extra mile. It saved me an extra trip plus caused minimal inconvenience to me. The goodwill built up by your father continues to grow with employees like JC."
Again, thank you for your great service and we want you to know that it doesn't go unnoticed.
Paul Mahoney of Towson Maryland
"Thank you for the courtesies you and your people extended to us recently regarding our 95 Buick Roadmaster Wagon. A special thanks to the two of your transmission technicians, JC and Dexter, who actually walked me through our transmission problem. As in the past Jim Jennings Transmissions has again proved to be the most knowledgeable transmission experts we have ever dealt with! Your excellence and leadership has given us the peace of mind in dealing with a competent local company. As a company ourselves, with eight vehicles on the road, it is a must to keep our vehicles in top condition. We believe today that you shouldn't be in business only for the money and that the best in anything seldom goes bankrupt. Again, thank you for your great service and we want you to know that it doesn't go unnoticed."

Glen Arm Maryland
Thomas Wilder of Glen Arm Maryland
"This Baltimore transmission shop is AWESOME! J.C. Spent over 45 minutes test driving my vehicle, found the transmission problem caused by the use of an unqualified shop and corrected it. They cleaned the engine & undercarriage of sprayed fluids. I would recommend Jim Jennings Transmission to everyone in Baltimore"
I will definitely be a repeat customer again if I have any transmission issues, ever!! AND their shop was super clean to boot!!
Michele R of Parkville Maryland
"My 01 Chevrolet Malibu was having transmission problems- too afraid of knowing the problem, I drove it until it couldn't go anymore. Jim Jennings Transmissions was AWESOME!!! Gary Jennings picked up my car late in the afternoon, called me the next day and told me that it only needed some transmission lines re-done (rusted through). I just KNOW if I took it anywhere else, they would have told me I needed a whole new transmission, to the tune of thousands of dollars. I will definitely be a repeat customer again if I have any transmission issues, ever!! AND their shop was super clean to boot!!"
