Jim Jennings Transmissions - Essex, MD - Portrait


The Jennings family team knows our reputation and our customers are our most valuable assets and protect them with everything we do. We strive to rate a 5 star review every time we have the opportunity to help someone. That means our shop promises to diagnose transmission and driveline problems accurately, honestly and efficiently. Every repair recommendation is based on "cost versus benefit" with the goal of insuring our customers have an informed.. opinion as to whether they should proceed with a repair. In other words.....if we don't think a repair is worth the cost, we tell our customers or provide alternative solutions. Our reputation as "the best in the industry" is based on our promise to "ALWAYS DO THE RIGHT THING".......and we have been doing "THE RIGHT THING" for our customers since 1958.

His reputation and business grew rapidly and not only did his business become full-time but he hired two full-time employees. As luck would have it, Jim was invited to be the guest of Joe Eikenberg (owner of Aero Motors) for the 1958 opening of the Baltimore Orioles season. He took a rare day off because Joe told him there would be a lot of "car guys" there and it might be good for his business. As chance would have it he spent most of the day talking with the sal
