Being new to the area I read the reviews here but Jackson Auto Center was with in walking distance from my home. My car wasn't working so I took the chance and I'm glad I did. They did excellent work at a good price and now I have a working car and a great place near by to get service and maintenance work done.

I should have checked the review here first before I went, but the previous review was dead on the same case with me. I thought a small local shop would give me a better price for repairs but I was dead wrong. After checking Kudzu, I took the car to a highly rated shop, in Buckhead no less, and was charged only half what Butch Jackson quoted me. It sucked that I had to pay the highway robbery fee for the diagnostics, but even after paying nearly $200, I still saved $700 by taking it to a better rated shop. I can't understand how the man can sleep at nights knowing he's ripping off people like this. He needs to be run out of town.

Do not go to this mechanic! The owner acts very nice and friendly. However, he was overcharging us and pressuring us using scare tactics to get things fixed that didn't need fixing. We took my car in for an oil change and he tells us there are $1,700 worth of repairs needed! So we take it to my old mechanic that is about an hour away and he looks over the invoice from Jackson's and said the guy was trying to get us to fix things that didn't need fixing and he was going to double charge us for labor. My old mechanic ended up fixing everything for $600. Even though we have moved to Mableton, we will stick with the old mechanic an hour away for the honesty.
