Testimonials For J&R Auto Repair
John is the best! If you are looking for a trust worthy mechanic look no further. Great service and is always accommodating (be it a loaner car or coffee)
So one day I get a frantic call from my wife who is stuck on a hill and everytime she takes her foot from the brake the car rolls back and will not go forward. After a few tense minutes and a great Tyngs police officer she was safe and parked. I arrived and the car would not shift to drive. Call a tow truck and off the J&R it goes. Before he even had a chance to look at it, it seemed the obvious was a transmission close to the tune of 5000.00. John was having none of it. He dropped the pan and found a factory stainless line (forward) disconnected from the transmission. 300.00 later and on the road she was again. Moral of the story? How many mechanics and or trans shops would have passed on honesty for money?? Quite a few my past experiences would prove, not John he is my type of mechanic in the sense of it is what it is and he explains that! If your looking for superior work, and superior ethics J&R Auto should be our mechanic!!!! Andrew And Jill Labonte
My experience at John’s has always been great. I always take my car to him and feel 100% sure that my car is in great hands. I have total confidence in him. He is very professional and affordable. I have been going to John’s for the past 5 years and i consider him my mechanic, and my friend. I trust him and i recommend him to all my friends and family. Thank You John for the great work.
Was recommended by a close friend to bring my daughters car there to get fixed since my old garage could not find anything wrong. The problem my daughters car had was it would not start all the time and sometime just shut off after warming up which would not happen on a steady basis. John gave the car his personal touch, he found the problem and instilled confidence in my daughter the car was now safe to drive. The service and understanding John gave to details was far and beyond anyone I ever dealt with in the car repair industry.
Would recommend his garage to everybody because of the knowledge and personal service you get.
I brought my car to John after discovering that I had a flat tire before leaving for work one morning. The whole process of getting my new tire was very quick, hassle free and affordable. John is a great guy and I will definitely be bringing my car back to him when it needs work.
John at J&R Foreign Car Repair provides excellent service at an incredible price.
John’s ability to diagnose the most difficult problems, provide required repairs, and keep the bill to a reasonable level is amazing. John saved me from purchasing another used car. I have a Nissan Maxima 1995 purchased new it has about 100k miles with a serious starting problem. The starter will turn but it will not start. I had taken it to 5 mechanics before. All were extremely nice and, I thought, very knowledgeable- they have worked on various problems for me earlier and always provided a great service and very reasonable prices. Each has performed various diagnoses and some repair varied from replacing the ignition key, to the starter, various sensors, and spark plugs. The car seems to run better then it reverts to the same old behavior. At the end they all recommended taking it to the dealer. They all indicated to take it to the dealer citing their ability to diagnose the problem is limited to the diagnostic software they had and the dealer had full access to the software they will be able to provide more accurate diagnosis . Based on their recommendations I took the car to IRA Nissan in Tewksbury the bill was unreal very high compared to the 5 mechanics. Same thing the car performed a bit better but nothing tangible the same old problem.
So at this point I am ready to dump the car in the junk yard…..I took the car to John he kept it for few days and was able to diagnose the problem very effectively. John replaced the on board computer and couple of sensors. The car is running like new and the best part at a fraction of the cost of the dealer. John was able to diagnose and fix the problem accurately where 5 gas stations and the dealer where not able to do so. What a great service not to mention the price was more then reasonable. Now I can use the car for another 100k miles.
John saved me at least $5000-$7000. I don’t have to purchase another car for a while. I would strongly recommend John for any repair especially for foreign cars such as Audi, Mercedes……
John at J& R Foreign Auto Repair John is awesome. He bought this place, cleaned it up, and offers what mechanic work should be. Honest, affordable, comprehensive, and competitive. Not only did he replace parts on my car, but he walked me through other things that needed to be done at some point.
No pressure, just honest hard work. He has a life-long customer! Thanks John
J&R is one of the best shops I’ve ever brought my vehicle to. John was very thorough with his diagnosis and very reasonable in regards to pricing. Even though I’ve moved away from the Lowell area, I will continue bringing my vehicle to him due to his friendly service and inquisitive persona.
